The QPS Privacy Mission

QPS, Inc. gathers two types of information about users:

  • Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our message boards or forums, apply for a job, or order a publication.
  • Information QPS, Inc. gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience.

Our policy is to not share personally identifiable information with third parties, unless required by law, or unless explicitly requested by a visitor. We recognize that your information is valuable and we take all reasonable measures to protect your information while it is in our care. We use small text files called cookies to improve the overall site experience; however, these are not used to track individual visitors to our site. The use of cookies is now standard operating procedure for most web sites, however if you are uncomfortable with the use of cookies, most browsers now permit users to opt-out of receiving them.

Use of information

QPS, Inc uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.

We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don’t track which terms a particular user enters.

Sharing of the information

QPS, Inc. uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better understand our audience’s demographics. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal processes or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
