Privacy Statement for EntireEarth.com Effective 12/29/12
EntireEarth.com has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm
commitment to privacy. Your privacy is important to us, and to better protect your privacy
we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can
make about the way your information is collected and used while visiting EntireEarth.com
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully
understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that
information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use
The Information EntireEarth.com Gather and Tracks
EntireEarth.com gathers two types of information about users:
Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are
voluntary submissions to receive our reply to any email that the website users send us.
Information EntireEarth.com gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly
by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor
our content to readers' needs, and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand
the demographics of our audience. Because EntireEarth.com derives its revenue mainly from
sponsorships and advertising, providing such aggregated demographic data is essential to
keeping our service free to users. Under no circumstances does EntireEarth.com divulge any
information about an individual user to a third party.
EntireEarth.com tracks user traffic patterns throughout most of the entire site. However,
we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. EntireEarth.com
does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type,
and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained
in every user's browser).
EntireEarth.com sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our
Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use
tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based
on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well
each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
EntireEarth.com is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email ("spam"). We do
not send emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell, rent or provide email
addresses to any unauthorized third party. If you receive any unsolicited emails from
spammers, please be assured that EntireEarth.com did not provide your email address to
such parties. We do not spam anyone and do not authorize use of spam from anyone to
promote ads or products listed on our site.
This does not mean that we can prevent spam from happening on the Internet. Unfortunately,
spammers may obtain email addresses in a number of devious ways, including when you
respond and ask to be taken off a spam email list, and in some cases by just generating
emails to millions of random email addresses in the hopes of getting a few
"live" ones. Please be assured that at EntireEarth.com we hate spam as much as
Since we at EntireEarth.com have never send any unsolicited commercial email to anyone
and we haven't used any email list to send any email to anyone, we don't have any list to
OPT-OUT of. The only way that you will receive any email from EntireEarth.com is if you
contact us first, and we need to reply to your email, otherwise you will not get any email
If at any time in the future we decide to start a mailing list, we will then make
available the relevant information on this site, about how to Join and OPT-OUT of any
future mailing list.
