Privacy Statement

We take seriously the collection of any personally identifiable information and personal contact information ("personal information") from our visitors and are committed to protecting each visitor's privacy in accordance with these policies. We use the term "visitors" to include registered members of insideasean.com communities and any other person that accesses our website at any point for any amount of time. Please carefully review our information collection practices and privacy protection below.

We provide various informative, educational, and entertaining features as part of the website. To operate these features, we collect certain non-personal and personal information from our visitors for specific purposes. For website activities that request personal information, you agree to provide accurate and current information about yourself. We may retain personal information for an indefinite amount of time to preserve our database and to comply with various government laws.

Use and collection of information by the website

To participate on the website, or in online activities or other features available on insideasean.com, you may be required to provide personally identifiable information such as your name, street and e-mail addresses, telephone number, birth date and gender. We may also survey visitors about various topics, including how we can improve our website and services. Response to our surveys is entirely voluntary.

We collect personal information for several important purposes, including to operate our membership base, protect the security of our visitors and the site, improve our service and website, distribute our newsletters, and for future marketing and/or promotional use about the website and other products and services provided by insideasean.com.

The only personal information the website obtains about you is information voluntarily provided by you through the website. This means that a person can visit the website and navigate through it without giving us personal information. To gauge the effectiveness of the website, we may collect non-personal information about our members and visitors, such as Internet server and browser identification, the Internet service provider, clickstream information, the web page from which a person enters our site, webpages visited, duration of visit and domain type. This information does not reveal a visitor's personal identity.

We may produce certain contests and special events with the support of affiliated or non-affiliated sponsors and/or promotional partners. The personal information collected through the website in conjunction with such events may also be used for the marketing of additional services and events by insideasean.com and/or its promotional partners and sponsors beyond the contest and/or special event. Depending on the event, visitors will be able to either grant their approval on how their personal information will be used before it is collected ("opt-in"), or choose to deny use of their information for additional purposes ("opt-out").

For each contest or special event, we will post on the website applicable rules for the event, and if necessary, post any supplemental terms and conditions or privacy provisions. To the extent there is a conflict between those privacy provisions and this policy, the privacy provisions for the specific event will govern.

Our Policy on Disclosing Your Information to Parties Other than insideasean.com

We only share or disclose your personal information with parties other than insideasean.com when it is required by law, disclosure is necessary to operate the website or certain website services, to protect the safety of our visitors, employees or property and/or when disclosure is consistent with insideasean.com’s practices for services that are similarly provided offline.

We may collect and provide aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners, and affiliates, such as how many persons visited a particular page or activity or the likes and dislikes of our visitors, but this information does not include personal information about any individual visitor. We may obtain geographic information such as zip code clustering from other sources, but this aggregate information will not reveal any personal information about a specific visitor.

Use and Collection of Information by Advertisers and Sponsors; Third Party Cookies and Tracking Devices

The website may post banner ads and other forms of advertisements, and/or links to the websites of affiliate entities or of advertisers or sponsors who are companies that are not owned or operated by insideasean.com, its affiliates or subsidiaries. These entities may independently solicit and collect personal information, or send their own cookies and/or clear GIFs to our visitors. The data collected is used in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to users of the website and other interactive media and may be used to keep track of user response to each advertisement.

We also work with third-party data analytics and online targeting companies. Some of these companies may use anonymous information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide data and targeting recommendations based on which we may provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

Our Security Procedures

We require our employees to protect the privacy of all information collected over the website. Only employees and supervisors with specific authorization have access to databases containing visitors' personal information. The databases are protected in a secure facility. That said, it is not possible to guarantee the security or integrity of information you disclose online since a sufficiently powerful attack from an unauthorized third party, however unlikely, could compromise your data.

For the convenience of our visitors, we may offer a list of helpful website links provided by other entities and/or persons. Insideasean.com does not endorse or recommend, nor is it liable for, the products or services of any websites not owned or operated by insideasean.com. When you visit other websites you will also be subject to the privacy policies and terms of usage agreements, if any, of that website operator.

Notification of Changes in the Privacy Policy

We will review our security measures and Privacy Policy on a periodic basis, and we may modify our policies as we deem appropriate. We may also change or update our Privacy Policy if we add new services or features and will post these changes in this policy. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis.

Children’s Privacy Policy

Insideasean.com respects the privacy of your child and we want to share with you our policies regarding children under the age of thirteen (13). We have developed this site to appeal to visitors over the age of thirteen (13). Although visitors of all ages may navigate through our website, we do not knowingly collect personal information from persons under the age of thirteen (13). If upon notification by a parent or guardian, or discovery by other means, that a child under thirteen (13) has improperly registered on this site by using false information, we will immediately cancel the child's membership and/or participation and delete the child's personally identifiable information from our records.

If we decide to request information from children, we will require verifiable parental consent before we collect any personal information from children under thirteen (13) years of age.
