Privacy Policy

Meng & Company, owner of (the "Website"), is committed to maintaining the privacy of personal information that you provide to us when using the Website. This Privacy Policy describes how Daily Gadsden and its affiliates will treat personal information received from you or about you when you visit or become a Member of the Website. From time to time, Daily Gadsden may make content or services from other websites available to you from links located on the Website, or otherwise direct you to or link to other websites. These other websites are not subject to this Privacy Policy. You should review the privacy policy at each such website to determine how that site protects your privacy.

When you register, or subscribe to become a Member, or upload content (to the extent you are permitted to do so), and at other times, we will collect information from you. This information falls into two main categories: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) is any information collected through the Website that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate you. PII would include your full name, address, credit card number, telephone number, Social Security number or other similar information which is unique to you or specifically identifies you. PII may include your email address if you have chosen not to use an anonymous email address (eg: some people have their full name in their email address, or have a personal website URL in their email address). We do not knowingly collect PII from children under the age of eighteen.

PII is collected through the Website, including, for payments made on the Website through our merchant credit card account, your billing information (full name, address and associated credit card number), and is stored on our servers. Daily Gadsden makes an effort to collect and save only the PII needed to process payments. Daily Gadsden uses customary security arrangement, including SSS (Secure Socket Layer) interfaces, to handle such information, and all such information is maintained in access-restricted, password protected storage. No security system is perfect, and Daily Gadsden cannot guarantee that no data breaches will occur in the future. However, Daily Gadsden intends to use reasonable precautions to protect and preserve the confidentiality of any PII collected on the Site. In addition, whenever you make any payments “online,” including on the Website, using third-party payment processors, such as PayPal, these processors also collect PII in the payment process.

Your name, email address and user password are stored on our server. Daily Gadsden may also, particularly with Members, collect other non-PII facts about your computers, profession, interests and similar information. Daily Gadsden may also elect to collect information regarding which features of the Website you use, and how frequently, to assist us in focusing Daily Gadsden’s efforts and resources on the development and improvement of the Site.

Please note that, if you use the Daily Gadsden Facebook app [], or if you access the Website through links on Facebook or other third-party websites, these third party websites may collect information on you. Please refer to the privacy policy of any third party site you may use in accessing Daily Gadsden.  Facebook, and other similar websites, may forward users to Daily Gadsden and provide certain information to Daily Gadsden in the process. This information is generally less than what is typically collected by Daily Gadsden for registered users and Members, and is the property of Facebook or the other referring third party website, and is not within the control of Daily Gadsden.

Surveys: Daily Gadsden may conduct occasional online or email surveys.  For example, when you're within the Website, you may see a pop-up window or button offering you the opportunity of participating in a survey. These surveys are entirely voluntary and you may easily decline to participate.  If you do participate, you may be asked to provide additional information as part of the survey. Daily Gadsden will retain survey information on its server, in some instances aggregated, and in other instances as individual responses, depending on the nature and type of survey being conducted.

Site Usage Information: Like most websites, Daily Gadsden will automatically collect IP addresses and website usage information from you when you visit the Website. This information helps Daily Gadsden evaluate how visitors and Members use and navigate the Website, including the number and frequency of visitors and Members accessing each Web page, and the length of their visits.

Additionally, Daily Gadsden may collect usage information that is tied to Personally Identifiable Information for purposes of subscription tracking and enforcement. This information is used to ensure Members are given appropriate access to our content and the particular Services to which they are entitled.

Help Desk Information:  Should you contact Daily Gadsden’s Customer Support desk with a question or technical concern, a customer support “ticket” will be created, that you will fill out, which will be saved. This is your support profile. This profile may include first name, last name, phone number, email address, Membership information and status, and if needed to address your concern, city/state/zip and address.

Daily Gadsden may use information it collects in the following ways:

• Credit card information is used only to process, validate, provide payment for and verify subscriptions for Membership, or purchases of merchandise or contect that Daily Gadsden may, from time to time, make available on the Site, or through third-party providers.
• For any purpose if you are advised of it in advance
• To send you e-mail notifications about new or existing Memberships, Content, products and services, special offers, or to otherwise contact you.
• To enhance existing features or develop new features, content, products and services.
• To provide Third Party Service Providers (see description of Third Party Service Providers, below) with aggregate information about Daily Gadsden’s user base and usage patterns.
• To allow Daily Gadsden to personalize the content that you and others see based on personal characteristics or preferences, or to direct our Members to specific content of interest to them.

Daily Gadsden may combine the information that we collect from you on the Website with information that you provide in connection with your use of other Content, products, Services and websites.

Daily Gadsden may also share its Membership list with organizations which provide information, services or products from which Daily Gadsden believes its Members will benefit, or which support development of additional Content. By completing the Membership subscription (as indicated on that subscription) you specifically consent to Daily Gadsden sharing this information with these third parties.

Daily Gadsden may, from time to time, hire other companies to perform services for Daily Gadsden or relating to the Website including, without limitation, facilitating some aspects of the Site, sending e-mail, and fulfilling purchase requests. These other companies may be supplied with or have access to your Personally Identifiable Information solely for the purpose of providing these services to you or on Daily Gadsden’s behalf.  In addition, Daily Gadsden may provide PII to companies, including, in some instances, affiliates of Daily Gadsden, established for the specific purpose of creating the Daily Gadsden content. This information will be provided to such companies only for the purpose of providing Members who have indicated an interest in a specific content project, or sponsors of such projects, information regarding the status of the project.

Daily Gadsden may use third parties, called Third Party Service Providers, to provide premium features such as links to sources of additional information or content, to conduct surveys, to provide newsfeeds or current information, or to make products or services available to Members which Daily Gadsden believes would be of interest to its Members. These Third Party Service Providers may be supplied with or have access to your Personally Identifiable Information solely for the purpose of providing these services, content or products to Daily Gadsden’s Members. They may also collect and use non-Personally Identifiable Information about your visits to the Website and other websites in order to present custom information that may be of interest to you.  

As indicated on the Website, a primary purpose of Daily Gadsden is to support the creation of content and entertainment expressing and supporting patriotic, family-oriented and traditional values.  This content may be created for use and display on the Website, or for commercial distribution through traditional outlets such a radio, television, DVD or movies, or both. From time to time, Daily Gadsden may offer its Members the opportunity to sponsor or financially support these projects to create such content. It is anticipated that this will be an interactive process, allowing the supporting Members to actively monitor and participate in the creative process. In order to do this, information you have provided will be used in two different ways – first, to inform you of specific opportunities to sponsor, support and become involved in the creation of new content, and second, to provide you with ongoing information and participation opportunities regarding the particular project you are supporting. You are under no obligation to participate in any of these opportunities.

Except as specifically set forth in this Privacy Policy, your Personally Identifiable Information will not be shared outside of Daily Gadsden unless you "opt in" to having your Personally Identifiable Information shared with a company that is not affiliated with Daily Gadsden.

Daily Gadsden may disclose and use Personally Identifiable Information and other information in special circumstances where it is necessary to enforce the Member Agreement or Terms (for example, when necessary to protect intellectual property rights).  Daily Gadsden may also disclose or use your Personally Identifiable Information as well as other information when Daily Gadsden, in good faith, believes that it is required by law requires to do so.

Daily Gadsden may also establish, or permit its Members to establish chatrooms for discussion of topics of interest to Members. When Members use the Comments feature (for example, by posting a Comment or responding to special member participation forums), Daily Gadsden may make public any information that you provide including your name, location and e-mail address.

Other User Submitted Content: Daily Gadsden may, in its sole discretion, from time to time authorize and permit Members to upload other content such as user created articles, content, music or videos.  If you are offered the opportunity and choose to submit material to the Site, Daily Gadsden will ask for information about yourself and the material you submitted.

“Cookies” are a common type of technology used by most large websites.  They allow you to move quickly around the site and allow the site owner to provide a better level of service to you. The following is information that will help you understand the use of cookies.

What's a cookie?
A cookie is a small file that is sent to your computer by a site's server. A cookie can be a record of your visit to a site, including information such as your User Name, registration information, time of last visit, pages viewed, etc.  A cookie created by one site's servers can be retrieved only by that site's servers.  Thus, information in any cookies created or used by Daily Gadsden is not accessible to other sites.

Using Daily Gadsden
In order to access the Site successfully, and to take full advantage of the Content and Services, your browser must be set to "accept all cookies." If you set your browser to "not accept" any cookies, you will not be able to use the Site as intended. If you are having trouble using the Website, check your security settings to confirm that you are accepting all cookies.

Daily Gadsden suggests that you do not navigate the Website with your browser's "cookie alert" feature enabled.  This feature notifies you onscreen whenever your computer is asked to accept a cookie.  While you certainly could set your browser to alert you each time a cookie is passed to your computer, you will likely find the experience of having to respond to frequent cookie alerts quite frustrating while trying to enjoy the Website and its Content and Services. 

Why does Daily Gadsden use cookies?
Daily Gadsden uses cookies to allow you to move quickly through the Website.  This is accomplished in many ways, using different cookies. When you first enter the Website, a test cookie is used to confirm your browser's ability to retain cookies.  Next, Daily Gadsden will check its database to verify your subscription and Membership, or user registration, so you can gain access.  A cookie is then temporarily "set" within your browser to allow you to proceed without having to confirm your identity with each subsequent page you request to view.

Without cookie technology, Daily Gadsden would not be able to offer you convenient features such as the ability to store your User Name and Password and save personalized settings.

You may receive other cookies during your sessions at the Website from Third Party Service Providers.  These Third Party Service Providers may use their own cookies in order to serve surveys or premium content on the Site.

What is the advantage for our Members?
Daily Gadsden believes that the use of cookies on the Website provides numerous benefits to its Members and registered users, including the following:

Faster, more convenient access – You are not asked to identify yourself with each new page requested. The Daily Gadsden can also deliver customized information and store your settings more efficiently.

Better information – Daily Gadsden wants to provide you features, Content and Services in which you are interested. Through the use of cookies, Daily Gadsden can determine which features are most popular with Members and registered users on an aggregate basis and thus better serve your needs by developing new features and services in response to Daily Gadsden’s analysis of usage.

Will the cookies you send me go away?

Some cookies used by Daily Gadsden are long term, to avoid the need for asking you for certain information with each new session, such as your User Name.  Some cookies do expire after a short period of time.  Remember, cookies are small files and won't pose any significant disk-space concerns on your computer.

In fact, most cookies expire after 24 hours from their time of issue.  Others, such as those required to retain settings you elect (User Name, Password, Personalization preferences, etc.) will continue to reside on your hard drive for subsequent use by your browser, but are quite small and should not pose any significant disk capacity concern.

You are, of course, free to clear any and all cookies from your hard drive any time you wish; simply search your system for any files named cookie*.* (or similar) and delete these at your discretion, or use your browsers “delete cookies” feature. This is usually found in the preferences section of your browser. Your browser’s “Help” section should allow you to find this feature.

Remember, however, that deleting these cookies means any long-term settings (such as your stored User Name) will need to be reset, and you will have to provide this information again the next time you visit the Website.

There are also a number of software and shareware programs available that are designed to periodically purge cookie files from your hard disk.  Daily Gadsden does not recommend these applications and, as such, cannot address any resulting support issues that may be related to the use of these programs.
