GayCities Privacy Policy

Like most websites, we collect certain information about you in order to provide the service. We care about your privacy and want to make sure you know what we do with this info. We abide by a few simple privacy principles:

We only ask for enough info to make the site work.

This site thrives on its community and the info and events, answers, checks and reviews that you share on the site. In order to provide these features, you share information with us.

When you connect your account to a third party service, that service shares info with us

This site allows you to connect your account to your accounts on other services like facebook, twitter, or foursquare. When you connect, you enable additional functionality on your account, making it easier to share with your friends and this site's visitors. To make these features work, the other service needs to share information with us (eg. to display your profile pic, post your event attendances, or post your mobile checkins). When you ask us to, we can publish information to the other service as well (eg. share this checkin on facebook or twitter). This is completely optional and you can always disable this service from the "My Account" screen. Each of these services also provides their own way to disable the sharing on their site. See the privacy policies for facebook, foursquare, and twitter.

We use cookies to remember you

Like nearly all web sites, we use cookies to remember you. This enables us to log you in automatically when you return to the site and other features to save you time. We also use cookies to make sure you don't accidentally rate the same establishment too many times. We also may use these cookies, along with your IP address, to better understand the patterns of usage of our site and how we can make it better. We also use analytics tools (Google Analytics, Parse.ly, Quantcast, Comscore) that track the usage of the site and may use cookies to do so. We also utilize third-party ad networks and they or an advertiser may use cookies to allow us to retarget ads to you and to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and / or to personalize the advertising content that you see on our site or others.

We do not sell or rent user information

The personal information that you give us stays with us and will not be sold or rented. We may share aggregated information about our visitors, including things like the demographics of our users, but we will not sell or rent personally identifiable information. We may send messages or display targeted advertisements based on personal information, but in these cases, we will choose which ads/messages to display and we will not share your personal information with the advertiser unless we explicitly indicate that we will.

Third Party Ads

We allow third-party companies to serve ads and collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, the subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. Look for the AdChoices logo on certain ads and click it to opt-out of these practices. If you would like to opt-out of third-party advertising, each of the following programs provides an opt-out feature where consumers can choose not to receive targeted advertising from their affiliates: Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) opt out and the Digital Advertising Alliance's (DAA) opt out. If you are located in the European Union, you may prefer to use the EDAA opt out. Because these third parties opt-out is cookie-based, your browser must be set to accept third-party cookies. If you use multiple devices or browsers, you'll have to opt out on each. If you delete the opt-out cookie, you will need to opt-out again.

We use email to keep in touch, but you can always unsubscribe

If you give your contact information, we may contact you from time to time via email or regular mail about site updates and changes. You can always unsubscribe from any of these emails if you wish.

If we change our policies, we will post notice here

If our privacy policy changes, we will post a notice on our site and specifically on this page.
