Privacy Policy 

 

TheVikingsWorld.com respects your privacy, and we want you to understand the ways in which we do and don't use the information that you transmit when you visit our Web site.  This statement discloses the privacy practices for all TheVikingsWorld.com Web sites.

 

A Note to Kids

Do a little research and have some fun!  But remember, you should still get permission from your parents before sending any information about yourself (such as your name, email address and phone number) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else.  A note to parents:  We won't knowingly allow anyone under 13 to register with any of our sites or to access those features that require registration.

 

Basics

The information gathered by TheVikingsWorld.com falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our Web sites through optional registration and (2) tracking information routinely gathered as visitors navigate through our sites.  To make use of certain features on our Web sites, visitors may need to register and to provide certain information as part of the registration process.  (We may ask, for example, for your name, email address, gender, age and zip code, and we might request information on your interests.)  The information you supply will help us to offer you more personalized features, to tailor our sites to your interests and to make them more useful to you.  The more you tell us about yourself, the more value we can offer you.  Supplying such information is entirely voluntary.  But if you don't supply the information we need, we may be unable to provide you with services we make available to other visitors to our sites.  For example, we can't send you email alerting you to any new service we're offering or breaking news that may interest you if you don't tell us your preferences and give us your email address.  Similarly, we can't notify you that you've been lucky enough to win a prize in a promotional contest if we don't know how to contact you.  Of course, even if you want to remain completely anonymous, you're still free to take advantage of the wealth of content available on our sites without registration.

 

  Cookies

We do not use cookies, nor do we plan to use them in the future.  Bottom line, we respect your privacy, period!

 

IP Addresses

Our Web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer's connection to the Internet, including your IP address, when you visit our sites.  (Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data such as the Web pages you view.)  Your IP address does not identify you personally.  We use this information to deliver our Web pages to you upon request, to tailor our sites to the interests of our users and to measure traffic within our sites.

 

   Information Sharing and Sites Beyond TheVikingsWorld.com

To make our sites more valuable to our visitors, we may offer some features in conjunction with other providers.  These features are made available through cooperative arrangements with providers that specialize in operating such services and that will receive the information you provide when you register for, and use, these services.  To take advantage of these services, you may need to provide personal information to us and to the other provider.  And, of course, our sites include links to plenty of other Web sites whose privacy policies we don't control.  Once you leave our servers (you can tell where you are by checking the URL in the location bar on your browser), use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you're visiting.  And when you provide information in the course of obtaining products or services through our site, use of any information you provide may be governed by the privacy policy of the provider of those products or services, even if it appears that you're on Opinicus-branded pages throughout the transaction.  That policy may differ from ours. If you can't find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site's homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information.  It is the firm policy of Opinicus Publishing Company, TheVikingsWorld.com, and TheTroubleshooters.com not to sell or rent your name or any other personal information to any third parties.  We respect your privacy, as we would our own.

 

Encryption and Security

All information gathered on any TheVikingsWorld.com Web site is encrypted for storage within a TheVikingsWorld.com-controlled database.  TheVikingsWorld.com seeks to safeguard the information you provide.  As effective as encryption technology is, however, no security system is completely impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.

 

  Purchases

TheVikingsWorld.com knows that the confidentiality of purchase-related information is of special concern to visitors who purchase items through TheVikingsWorld.com. TheVikingsWorld.com is committed to safeguarding this information.  We will not share any personally identifiable information (such as your name, address or telephone number) that you provide us when you make a purchase through TheVikingsWorld.com with any other company, except where necessary for the vendor to fulfill the order.

 

  Sweepstakes and Contests

From time to time, TheVikingsWorld.com may offer contests, sweepstakes or other promotions (collectively "contests") on our sites.  If you enter a contest, you'll have to provide information about yourself (such as your name, address, and email address) so that we can contact you if you win.  We may share this information with any co-sponsor of the contest (as identified in the rules).  If you don't want us to collect the information requested in the contest registration form or to provide it to contest co-sponsors, please don't enter the contest.

 

  A Final Note:

The Web is an evolving medium.  If we need to change our privacy policy at some point in the future, we'll post the changes here.  Of course, our use of information gathered while the current policy is in effect will always be consistent with the current policy, even if we change that policy later.  If you have any questions about our privacy policy, please send an email to: Webmaster@TheVikingsWorld.com

 

Thanks for making the TheVikingsWorld.com Web sites a part of your education online!
