This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that iFanboy.com does not own or control, or to people that iFanboy.com does not employ or manage, or to anything that conspiracy theorists may accuse us of. They can put their tinfoil hats on and stop bothering us. (Although, we know who you are)
Information Collection and Use
iFanboy.com collects personally identifiable information when you register for a iFanboy.com account, when you use certain iFanboy.com products or services, and when you visit iFanboy.com pages. When you register with iFanboy.com, we ask for your identifying information for the purposes of creating your personal account. The information also maintains the integrity and security of your account while you are a member.
Once you register with iFanboy.com, sign in to our services, and use the website, you no longer are anonymous to us. iFanboy.com does automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address and the page you requested, as well as records more extended site usage through the use of 3rd party analytics and measurement tools. iFanboy.com uses information for three general purposes: to deliver the advertising and content you see, to gauge the popularity of features and content, to create new content, and to further our intent of complete world domination.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
iFanboy.com will not sell or rent your information to anyone unless we find that your actions on our web sites violate the iFanboy.com Terms of Service, or any of our usage guidelines for specific products or services. Then we will essentially write your name and phone number on the equivalent of the internet bathroom wall. OK. We won’t. iFanboy doesn’t share any personally identifiable info with anyone. We do use your info in aggregate to sell advertising and make decisions about partner offers and such. You will never be able to trace spam, junk mail, or telemarketing calls back to us. That’s how we roll. Word.
iFanboy.com sets cookies on your computer. We have to. iFanboy uses these cookies to keep you logged in to the site and allow you easier access to feaures on the site. Feel free to clear them as you need to, or even to deny the site the ability to set cookies for you. Don’t complain when the site doesn’t function properly, though. It’s the internet. Cookies are part of how its done.
iFanboy.com allows other companies that are presenting advertisements on some of our pages to set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one.
iFanboy makes reasonable efforts to ensure that members understand how their personal information will be used. iFanboy obtains the consent of individuals as required for the collection, use or disclosure of personal information, except in those limited cases where applicable local law does not prohibit such collection, use or disclosure without consent.
Consent can be either express or implied. Express consent is given either verbally or in writing – e.g., on a iFanboy membership signup form. Typically, consent is obtained by checking that box indicating the member is aware of all relevant terms. Consent can be implied when it can be reasonably understood by the action or inaction of the member that they must have consented to specific collection, use or disclosure of their personal information.
An individual can withdraw consent at any time by contacting iFanboy at contact@iFanboy.com. If a member withdraws consent, iFanboy will make the member aware of any consequences of this action. Which is usually account termination.
Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us.

To prevent the collection of information from people under 13, iFanboy.com requires you provide your age at time of sign up.
