For some activities on InsightOutpost, such as uploading User Submissions or posting User Comments, you need an InsightOutpost Account. When registering with the Website and creating an Account, we ask for certain personal information, including your email address. We may also request certain optional information, such as your birth date and postal code, to assist us with enhancing the Website or tailoring the services we provide.
Our servers may also automatically collect information about your computer when you visit the Website, including without limitation the type of browser software you use, the operating system you are running, the website that referred you, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. Your IP address is usually associated with the place from which you enter the Internet, like your Internet Service Provider, your company or your university.
User Profile and Comments
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose through User Submissions or your profile page may be viewed by other users of the Website. In addition, your user name but not your e-mail address may also be viewed by other others.
When you use InsightOutpost, we may record information about your usage of the site, such as the types of User Submissions you view or download, the frequency and size of data transfers, and information you display about yourself. If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your InsightOutpost Account. In order to ensure the quality of our service to you, we may place a tag (also called a "web beacon") in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery.
Manner of Use
If you submit personal information to InsightOutpost, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of InsightOutpost, and to process any flagging activity or other communication you send to us. We do not use your email address or other personal information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. We may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major InsightOutpost changes or for customer service purposes). You also can choose how often InsightOutpost sends you email updates in your InsightOutpost Account Settings page.
We may provide access to our database in order to cooperate with official investigations or legal proceedings, including, for example, in response to subpoenas, search warrants, court orders, or other legal process.
InsightOutpost strives to provide you with relevant and useful advertising. To do so, our advertisers may use a range of information including cookies, web beacons, IP addresses, usage data and other non-personal information about your computer or device (such as browser type and operating system). If you are logged into your InsightOutpost Account, we may also show you advertising based on the information you have provided to us in your InsightOutpost Account or profile page.

InsightOutpost cannot guarantee the security of the personal information you send to us through the Internet or the security of our servers or databases. By using the Website you agree to assume all risk in connection with the information sent to us or collected by us when you use the Website.
