Aurora respects the privacy and security of its users. Our goal is to provide you with a fun, efficient and personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources and services that are most useful and helpful to you. In order to achieve this goal, we sometimes collect information during your visits to understand what differentiates you from millions of other users.
Aurora has prepared this statement disclosing the privacy practices for the entire Site to display to you our commitment to maintaining your privacy.
What Information Is Collected:
Aurora may collect certain information from and about its users in three ways -- directly from the user, from our Web server logs, and with cookies.
User-Supplied Information: When you sign up for any service offered by Aurora, we may ask you for your name, e-mail address and some other personal information.
Server Log Information: When you visit an Internet Web site, you disclose certain information about yourself, such as your Internet [Protocol] (IP) address, the time of your visit, and the referring location (e.g., the Site or page that offered a link to an Aurora page). As does many sites, we may collect this basic information about visits to our site for statistical and other reasons.
You should remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, such as on message boards, through e-mail, discussion groups, or in chat areas, your information can be collected and used by others. Although Aurora tries to protect your personal information, Aurora cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. You are also solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords you set up and/or any account information.
How And When Information Is Used:
We may use the information in different ways, depending on the type of information:
User-supplied information :
This information is used for purposes such as personalization and verification.
Web Server Logs :
This information helps us identify which areas of our site are of interest to our visitors. Aurora World also collects the Internet [Protocol] (IP) addresses of its visitors for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.
Cookies : We may use "cookies" to let you use our services more easily and to let us keep track of certain statistical information that helps us improve our site. Cookies may also allow us to save passwords and preferences for you so that you won't have to re-enter them the next time you visit.
How We Protect Your Information:
The privacy and protection of your personal information is vitally important to us. Aurora does not make personal information available to any third parties without your permission. Any user statistics that we may provide to prospective advertisers or partners regarding your usage are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information about any individual user.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, despite our efforts to protect your personal information, Aurora cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we will make a reasonable effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Who Has Access To The Information:
Except as described below, Aurora will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about its users to any third party without first receiving that user's permission. Aurora may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to protect the rights or property of Aurora.
When you are at the Aurora site and asked for personal information, you share that information with Aurora alone, unless the service is offered in conjunction with another party.
Thanks. Have fun!!!
