As a general policy, no personal information is automatically collected from visitors to the Salsa2U.com, and or PlanetHot.com and or TacoProper.com site, nor is so-called cookie technology used to collect personally identifying information by the sites created by The Hunt Group.
However, certain non-personal information of visitors is recorded by the standard operation of this site's online's internet servers. This information is primarily used to provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor. Information tracked includes the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system (e.g., Macintosh, Windows) in use by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor's Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink). By having this information, web pages optimized for a particula visitor's computer are automatically available to that visitor. Other uses of this information include internal review of the number of visitors to the sites but only in an aggregate and non-personally identifiable form. E-mail addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors to this site are known to The Hunt Group only when voluntarily submitted.
The Hunt Group will only collect personally identifying information with prior notification of its users. Cases may include but are not limited to the following: (i) contest or sweepstakes registration and (ii) subscription. In addition, information is collected in certain portions of sites in which guests specifically and knowingly provide such information along with content submissions, community postings (i.e., forums), suggestions, or reader service responses. The Hunt Group may use such information for editorial and feedback purposes (to the extent that is explained when guests provide the information). In the event The Hunt Group plans to post any such information on a site, guests are provided prior notification of such posting.
By showing how and when guests use the site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. If you accept the first tracking cookie from The Hunt Group, you won't be offered as many afterwards.
