Privacy Policy
Return to EugeneLoj.com

This site is owned and operated by Eugene Loj and Event Promotion Systems. Your privacy on the Internet is importance to us. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.


EugeneLoj.com gathers two types of information about users:
1. We collect information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. This information may include your name, e-mail address and other personally identifying information. We request this information if you opt-in to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, from participation in polls and surveys and to receive special offers and notices from us or our advertisers and sponsors:

Users who opt-in to receive the following free services are required to submit certain personally identifying information:

a. Electronic newsletters (Dispatches - VIP Newsletter)
EugeneLoj.com gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe to our free electronic newsletter. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page.

b. Message boards/forums
Users of the site's Message Boards and Forums must register separately for these services (both are free of charge) in order to post messages. To register for these services the user is required to supply a username, password, and email address.

c. "E-mail this to a friend" Service
Our site's users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend." The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email.

d. Polling
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. EugeneLoj.com may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with personally identifying information about individual users.

e. Surveys
EugeneLoj.com may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners.

2. Information EugeneLoj.com gathers through automatically tracking general statistical information about our Web site and its visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, etc…. EugeneLoj.com tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. EugeneLoj.com breaks down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).

This information allows us to better tailor our content to user's needs and build a better service for you. It also helps our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Because EugeneLoj.com derives its revenue mainly from sponsorships and advertising, providing such aggregated demographic data is essential to keeping our service free to users.

Children under 16

We will never knowingly request personally identifying information from anyone under the age of 16 without requesting parental or guardian consent. However, we have no way of distinguishing the age of individuals who access our Web site, and if a child under 16 has provided us with personally identifying information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact us by sending an email message to eugene (at) usabilitymatrix.com to remove the information and opt-out of the services provided through this Web site.

We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain personally identifying information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personally identifying information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. EugeneLoj.com uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). Our advertising system delivers a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser or set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in message boards, forums, polling and surveys.

EugeneLoj.com uses the information collected through this Web site for our internal business purposes, including enhancing your experience in our network of sites, providing interactive or personalized elements on the sites, and to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.

As stated above, we use personally identifying information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. EugeneLoj.com will not share newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners without notifying you first.

When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas, we do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users, but we don't track which particular users enter which particular terms.

EugeneLoj.com creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors and partners. This allows our advertisers, sponsors and partners to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs.

We use or disclose information to resolve disputes, investigate problems or enforce our User Agreement. We also use or disclose information whenever we believe in good faith that the law so requires or if we otherwise consider it necessary to do so to maintain service and improve our products and services.

EugeneLoj.com operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.

No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personally identifying information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us.

We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:

Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.

Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users

To update or delete the information that you have provided please send us an sending an email message to eugene (at) eugeneloj.com.


Except as otherwise expressly discussed, this Privacy Policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Please remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. We recommend that you do not disclose your username or password to anyone. We will never ask you for your username or password in an unsolicited e-mail or phone call.
