Privacy Policy

At the same time that The American Oil & Gas Reporter is committed to bringing you information tailored to your individual needs, we recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of personally identifiable information collected about you, our customers and prospects. In adopting this customer privacy policy, our intent is to balance our legitimate business interests in collecting and using information with your reasonable expectations of privacy.

AOGR does not collect personally identifying information about individuals, except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals.

Web servers serving AOGR automatically collect information about which pages each user visits and the domain name of visitors. This is used for internal review, to tailor information to individual visitors and for traffic audits. We also provide this information (as well as information from third-party market researchers) about our users on an aggregated, anonymous basis to our advertisers.

AOGR may place a “cookie” on the browser of a AOGR user’s computer. The cookie itself does not contain any personally identifying information. A cookie can be used to tell when your computer has contacted a website; we use the information for editorial purposes and for other purposes such as delivery of ads, so we can customize delivery of information without compromising privacy. For example, cookies are used to ensure that you don’t see the same ad too many times in a single session.

A user’s personally identifiable information (e.g., name, e-mail address) may be used by AOGR for follow up purposes. For example, we may use information provided by you as a way to follow up on subscription or contact requests.

Except as stated in this privacy policy or at the time of collection, user’s personally identifiable information will not be transferred to a party outside AOGR.

We do not control the privacy policies of our business partners, advertisers, sponsors or other sites to which we provide hyperlinks. AOGR users should also be aware that, when you voluntarily disclose personal information in chat areas or bulletin boards, that information may be collected by others and may result in unsolicited messages from others.

Technology on the Internet is developing at a rapid pace, and we need to maintain our flexibility in the online arena. If we need to change our policy in the future, we will post these changes as soon as they go into effect.
