The T-Room respects your privacy.
This privacy statement covers the site http://www.t-room.us as of February 15, 2010. Out of respect for your privacy, The T-Room provides this information explaining our online information practices.
Our intention is to provide an informative tool for members of the public interested in blogging here at The T-Room. We recognize that visitors to The T-Room may be concerned about the information that they provide to us and how we treat that information.
Your Personal Information
In general, when you visit The T-Room you remain anonymous. We require only your user name and a password to post comments. There are occasions when we will ask for additional information such as when you sign-up to become a Member of The T-Room’s Live Blog Suite. We do this to better understand and respond to your needs, and provide you with services that may be valuable to you.
What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information
Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, e-mail address, website address and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as social security numbers, credit card numbers or checking account information.
Use of Your Personal Information
The T-Room never shares your information with anyone including a third party.
E-Mail Sent to Us Containing Personal Information
If you choose to send personal identifying information to either The T-Room or The T-Room Live Blog Suite we will not share said content nor personally identifying information with anyone including a third party. For example, you might send an e-mail message containing information about your membership. We will use this information solely to identify you as a member of The T-Room Live Blog Suite and to determine how to best respond to the e-mail. We will not use this information for any purpose other than to resolve the specific matter identified in your e-mail.
Internet Protocol Address
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We collect an IP address from all visitors to our web site. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our blog site, analyze usage trends, track users’ interactions with the blog site, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the blog site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Links to Third-Party Web Sites
We provide many links to third party web sites existing outside of The T-Room and The T-Room Live Blog Suite. Since we do not control the content or functionality of these web sites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these third-party web sites. Any link from http://www.t-room.us to such a third-party web site does not denote an affiliation with the web site or an endorsement of its viewpoint(s) or mission(s).
Unsubscribing from the Live Blog Suite
Subscribed T-Room Live Blog Suite Members may unsubscribe to the service by sending an email to email@example.com or by simply cancelling your PayPal Subscription.
Security of Your Information
Online security is enhanced by use of firewalls protecting all servers. The physical servers that are utilized to secure and store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure facility that only authorized network administrators have access to. This facility provides security 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our Compliance with Federal Law
The T-Room and The T-Room Live Blog Suite complies fully with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA).

We are unable to reply to information requests from children under the age of 13, if so identified. A parent or guardian must initiate any requests for information from children under the age of 13 on their behalf. We encourage parents to supervise children when they browse the Internet.
