Use of Information

aroundpenangtips.com uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their
experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements
on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.

As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out
electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in poll, surveys, message boards,
and forums. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on
the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might
be particularly interested in something we are doing. aroundpenangtips.com never shares
newsletter mailing lists with any third party, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.

When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't
like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather
how well each page performs overall. This helps us to continue to build a better service to
you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of the many measures of
what interests our users. But we don't track which terms a particular user enters.

aroundpenangtips.com creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for
advertisers, sponsors and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more


effectively, and allows our users to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs.
Because we don't track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsors will
never know that a specific user clicked their ads. We will not disclose any information about
any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect
the personal safety of our users or the public.

essential to keeping our service free. We will not share information about individual users
with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to
protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

to register to receive our electronic newsletters and Opting not to participate in certain
interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable
information from our users.
