Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy:

TestTalks operates joecolantonio.com, testtalks.com, guildconferences.com and may operate other websites. It is TestTalks’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, TestTalks collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. TestTalks’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how TestTalks’s visitors use its website. From time to time, TestTalks may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

TestTalks also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on yourfirstdollar.com blogs/sites. TestTalks only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to TestTalkss’s websites choose to interact with TestTalks in ways that require TestTalks to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that TestTalks gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at joecolantonio.com or testtalks.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with TestTalks are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, TestTalks collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with TestTalks. TestTalks does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

TestTalks may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. TestTalks may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, TestTalks does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using TestTalks’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. TestTalks will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, TestTalks discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when TestTalks believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of TestTalks, third parties or the public at large.

If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
