While we believe in being social, we don’t believe in socializing your personal and private information. We recognize that your privacy is important. The Social Workplace does not share your information with anyone. PERIOD.
Also, we do not accept any form of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid topic insertions, or any other form of compensation for the thoughts presented. Posts are published simply because they ignited that “a-ha!” moment and because we thought the topic was timely and interesting.
To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
The only data we DO collect are standard site usage statistics for Google Analytics which allows us to measure website performance such as page views, keywords used to find our site, and other basic information that helps us improve the site.
How to control cookies
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing security browser settings in any internet safety program you may be using (e.g., Norton, McAfee). However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
If you choose to contact us using our contact us form, you will be asked to provide your name, Twitter name, and email address so we may respond to your request as necessary. Aside from the contact form, there is no personal information collected. In an over abundance of caution, we utilize Secure Sockets Layering (an industry-standard data transmission protocol) in order to encrypt certain data transmissions that contain personal information you may provide in the contact form process.
This site contains links to other websites. The Social Workplace is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
