Your privacy is important to T-ShirtForums.com. So we’ve developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and let us know if you have any questions.

Each time you use this website, the current version of this policy will apply. Policy changes will be reflected on this page.

Our site contains forms that require a user to give us valid and accurate contact information (like your name and email address during registration, and postal address in the case of a contest or giveaway).

Contact information from the registration form is used to send information to users about our website. We use the information you submit to fulfill your requests, provide site functionality, improve site quality, personalize your experience, display relevant advertising, provide customer support, message you, back up our systems, allow for disaster recovery, and comply with legal obligations.

A user’s contact information from surveys and contests is also used to get in touch with the user when necessary. Demographic and profile data is used to tailor our user’s experience on our website, by showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences.

2. Users submit certain information automatically simply by viewing the website

We use information our site collects, such as your IP address, to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information in order to tailor our website to better suit your needs.

3. This site uses cookies to enhance the user's experience

Our site uses cookies to make sure you don't see the same ad repeatedly. We also use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests.

No method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.
