Privacy Policy

Last Updated: February 2, 2013

This Privacy Policy (“Policy) is incorporated into the Terms of Service (“Terms”), and applies to the information obtained by us through your use of all services (“Service”) provided by NXST Inc (“NXST”).

NXST values your privacy and your personal information. This Policy covers what information NXST collects from you, as well as why and what we may do with that information, and how we handle your information. Since we collect certain types of information from our users, we feel you should fully understand our Policy. The Policy discloses what information we collect from you and how we may use that information. Please be familiar with the Policy and contact us if you have any questions.

Our Policy applies to all of the Services offered by NXST and its affiliates. It does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including services that may be displayed to you in our Site.

Information we collect

NXST collects your information to provide better services to all of our users. We collect two types of information:

  1. Information you provide us through optional and voluntary submissions. For example, when you sign up for a NEST Account, we will ask you for personal information such as your name, email address, gender, birthday, phone number, and location.
  2. Information we get from your use of our Service. We may collect information about the Services that you use and how you use them. NXST gathers such information mainly to tally page views throughout our Site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to our readers' needs and to help our sponsors better understand the demographics of our users. When you use our Services or access any Content provided by NXST, we may automatically collect and store certain information. This may include:
  1. IP address
  2. device event information such as crashes
  3. system activity
  4. the date and time of your activity
  5. cookies that may be used to identify your NEST Account

How we use your information

We use the information we collect from you to provide, maintain, and improve all of our Services. We may use such information to develop new services and to protect NXST, its affiliates, and mainly our users. We also use the information to offer you better content. Our goal is to offer better services to fit our users' needs. This includes your voluntary submission of your email address to receive our electronic newsletters regarding software updates, upcoming events, and participation in our blog. However, note that NXST never shares the mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors, or partners. Also, when you contact NXST, we may store your communication to help solve any issues you may be facing and to resolve any future issues.

NXST may use personal information to send important notices such as changes to our Terms, conditions, and Policy. Also, if there is ever a price change to some of our Services such as NEST, we may send out notices via email. NXST may send out emails regarding sweepstakes, promotions, and other events so that you can participate.

NXST uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our Service and to prepare for better future Content based on the interested of our users. We use information collected from cookies or pixel tags to improve your experience using our Service and the overall quality of our Service. We may use this information to determine which areas of the Site users like and dislike based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs.

Information we share

NXST values users' privacy and does not share personal information given by users with third parties, advertisers, sponsors, or any other companies unless one of the following applies:

  1. With your consent. We will share your personal information third parties when we have your consent to do so.
  2. For legal reasons. We may share information with other companies or organizations or any other individual outside of NXST if required by applicable law, regulation, legal process, or by governmental request. We may also share information if we find disclosure of the information reasonably necessary to detect, prevent, or address fraud or security issues. We may need to do so to protect NXST, its affiliates, and our users from harm when required or permitted by law.

NXST may share information with its affiliates or subsidiaries in order to better understand customer behavior and improve our Services overall.

Securing your information

We constantly put in effort to protect NXST and our users from unauthorized access that may include disclosure or harm of information we hold. We encrypt many of our Services using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). We also offer you to verify via email when you open up a NEST Account with us. We also require the employees of NXST and its affiliates (“Members”) to consent to strict confidentiality obligations when handling your personal information.

Opt-out policy

We give our users options whenever and wherever necessary and practical.

  1. When you create a NEST Account with us, you may opt out of giving information such as gender, location, and mobile phone number.
  2. You may refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. You do not need to have cookies turned on to access the Site; however, you may need cookies to participate actively on certain areas of the Site.

Updating our Policy

We will maintain our commitment to respect your privacy, and we may update this Policy to keep up with the changes in the Services provided by NXST. We recommend you check back to our Policy periodically to be informed. When we post any revisions, we will include their effective date. The revised Policy will be available as a hypertext link on our Site at all times.

When required by law, we will ask you to agree with such changes; however, in other cases, please note that your continuation of using any Service provided NXST means that you agree with the new Policy. If you do not consent to any changes in the Policy and no longer want to share your information, you will need to close your account and stop your use of all Services provided by NXST before the new Policy becomes effective.
