What follows is the privacy practices for OneWorldJourneys.com and FusionSpark Media (OWJ/FSM), the producers of OneWorldJourneys.com. Protecting your privacy and personal information is a top priority at OWJ/FSM. We have taken careful measures to secure your information. Questions regarding this statement should be directed to feedback@OneWorldJourneys.com.
In order to submit stories, respond to stories submitted by others and to receive updates, you must be a registered member with One World Journeys. During the registration process, we require a minimal amount of information so that you can be a member including: user name, email address, password, age range and country. If you are under age 13, you cannot be a registered member. If you are under age 13 and would like to submit a story, you must do it through the membership of a parent or guardian who is age 18 or older.
During registration, you are also given the option to provide other demographic information including gender, household income, online usage behavior, etc. You may provide this data on a strictly voluntary basis; this information is collected for demographic purposes only so that we know a little about our members and their interests. This demographic information is not linked to any personal identifiable information about you.
You are also given the option to create a Member Profile to include a brief biography about you, your real name, your self portrait and links to web sites relevant to you or your stories. You have the option of making your biography, self portrait and real name visible to other members and visitors to the site. This information will be connected to every story submission that you make. Please consider your options carefully when completing your Member Profile and choosing options to display your photography, name and biography. You may also choose to allow other members and visitors to email you. This option does not display your email address; it enables a member to simply send a message to you through One World Journeys.
When creating your Member Profile, do not include your phone number or home mailing address in the text of your biography.
OWJ/FSM does not provide its email or member list to companies not directly associated with One World Journeys programming.
OWJ sends occasional email announcements and newsletters to members to alert them to new or upcoming programs offered by OWJ sponsors or partners.
As a member, you have certain options for email when you register. You may choose to receive regular updates from One World Journeys and special offers from sponsors or partners. If you do not wish to receive either, you should change your Email Preferences in "My OWJ."
If you wish to discontinue your membership and remove your name and email from the member list, you may do so under Email Preferences. Under "Remove from Member List" read the instructions carefully before checking. If you discontinue your membership, you will not be able to access your profile nor will you be able to submit stories or respond to others. You will also not receive updates about future OWJ expeditions or projects. Stories that you have already submitted will remain on the site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and sponsors. This is not linked to any information that can identify any individual person.
When we partner with another party to provide specific services, offer special promotions, contests, etc., we will share names, or other contact information in order to provide the services or, for instance, to award a prize. Your contact information may be provided to promotional partners or advertisers if you choose to provide your contact information. If you participate in a promotion, contest, etc., you will be asked if you wish to share your contact information. If you choose to share your personal contact information in a contest or promotion, your personal contact information may be provided to the sponsor of the contest or promotion.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that OWJ/FSM is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
You must be a registered member of OWJ in order to participate in OWJ-sponsored contests or promotions. If you participate in a contest on OneWorldJourneys.com, your name and address will be added to the OneWorldJourneys.com member and email list. If you decide that you do not wish to receive emails from OWJ/FSM, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be removed from the list. Or, follow the directions offered in a regular email message issue by OneWorldJourneys.com.
From time-to-time our site requests information from members and visitors via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (age, education, household income level, etc.). If you choose to participate in these promotions, information that you provide may be shared with the sponsors of such promotions. In each case you will be alerted that information you provide may be shared with sponsors of special promotions or giveaways.
Visitors under age 13 are not permitted to register for contests or surveys. If a registrant in the age range 13 to 17 wins a prize in a contest, that registrant's parent or guardian will be required to give written consent so that registrant may receive his or her prize. At no time will any information provided by a visitor or member age 13 to 17 be released to an outside organization.
Survey information will also be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
