ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

Long Island Exchange provides its service to you, subject to the following Terms of Service (“TOS”), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you.

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE

Long Island Exchange currently provides access to a collection of resources, including, information, various communications tools, forums, shopping services, search services, and branded programming through its network of properties (the “Service”). You also understand and agree that the Service may include advertisements and that these advertisements are necessary for Long Island Exchange to provide the Service. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided “AS-IS” and that Long Island Exchange assumes no responsibility for errors, timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service and that access may involve third party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees, including those fees associated with the display or delivery of advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.

LONG ISLAND EXCHANGE PRIVACY POLICY

LongIslandExchange.com collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools. Information collected may be used for purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting. You can visit many pages of our site without providing any information at all, while other pages may prompt you to provide information, such as when you register for access to portions of our site, sign up for membership, request certain features, or place an advertisement or classified ad. You may also provide information when you participate on message boards, in chat rooms and other interactive areas of our site. We use this information only as permitted by law and as set forth in this policy.

In an effort to respect your privacy, Long Island Exchange does not share, rent, or sell personally identifiable information with anyone outside of our organization. We do share general site traffic data such as “overall viewership statistics” and “readership”. This information does not identify any user specifically.

Some areas of our site may use “cookies” (explained below) to store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit. Please note that certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our web site (our web hosting service, for example) may have access to limited amounts of information.

This site puts forth reasonable efforts to prevent the collection of data from minors. For example, some registration areas require users to indicate that they have been born sometime prior to 1992 in order to sign-up for an account. You may also refer to ‘parental control protections’ below for child safety.

THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING PRIVACY AND “COMPUTER COOKIES”

Long Island Exchange uses third-party advertising companies (specifically Google/DoubleClick) which may use cookies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use basic information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. Users may opt out of the use of the GOOGLE / DoubleClick cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

Here is how Google explains cookies: “A ‘cookie’ is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the website again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some website features or services may not function properly without cookies.”

BUSINESS TRANSFERS AND YOUR PRIVACY

In the event that LongIslandExchange.com is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. The promises in this policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity. In any of these possible events, commercially reasonable and good faith efforts would be taken to protect your privacy.
