By using this web site, you are accepting the policies and practices described in this Notice.
1.INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE– When you submit a contact form or other BIKEKINETIX® service or promotion that requires registration, we ask you for personal information such as your name, email address, zipcode. Our servers may automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website that uniquely identifies your Internet Protocol Address, Web Host and the date and time of your request.
2.USER COMMUNICATIONS – When you send email or other communications.
In both cases mentioned above, we retain information and those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services and security.
2) LOG INFORMATION — Web Site Use (see Section 3) information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our Web site.
We never share, sell or rent individual personal information with anyone without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for purposes of contacting you or sending you emails based on your request for information and to contracted service providers for purposes of providing services relating to our communications with you.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider (ISP), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the date and time of visits, the pages viewed and time spent at our Web site.
This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual. Information of this nature collected by Bikekinetix® shall be used for statistical purposes only. We may disclose anonymous aggregate information (for example, the percentage of our viewers that visit the Special Features section of our Web site) to third parties such as our advertisers or business partners.
Upon review of our web server logs, if a query looks similar to automated requests from a computer robot, spider, virus or spyware application coming from your ISP's IP Range we do lookup IP Address and host information to block access to, protect our server as well as report these violations.
Cookies And Web Beacons
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, Bikekinetix® may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on Bikekinetix.com.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in Security Software Programs. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Please note that deleting cookies does not neccessarily mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
Third Party Advertisers
Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing camping equipment or backpacking gear ads to someone who frequents backpacking sites).
DoubleClick DART Cookies
We may also use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site that is using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). Although we are currently opted out of DART's "interest based targeting" for Bikekinetix.com, we explain it here for your reference. The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about hiking in New York, you may see hiking boot or New York hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about flower arrangements). DART uses “non personally identifiable information". It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.

E-mail that you may send to us, or forms that you may submit, may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information such as Social Security, Passwords or any Account Numbers to us through an unsecured E-mail.
