It is SoSource Media and TVSource Magazine’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites. For questions regarding our privacy policy, please contact privacy [at] sosourcemedia.com.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

  • Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.
  • We will collect and use of personal information solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other compatible purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.
  • We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.
  • We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.
  • Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.
  • We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
  • We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.

We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, TVSource Magazine collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. TVSource Magazine’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how TVSource Magazine’s visitors use its website. From time to time, TVSource Magazine may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

TVSource Magazine also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. TVSource Magazine does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Any information you disclose voluntarily on our comments page or in any properties hosted by SoSource Media, LLC. becomes public information. TVSourceMagazine.com is a public forum. We cannot control the action of our site users and advise you to use your discretion in sharing information about yourself on the Internet. All information sharing is optional and done so at your own risk. Privacy is a very personal matter and we encourage you to be careful and responsible when disclosing personal information online.

TVSource Magazine Comment Policy

We never censor comments based on political or ideological point of view or of a critical nature. We reserve the right to delete those comments that are off-topic, “spammy” in nature, abusive, use excessive foul language, or include ad hominem attacks.

Once a comment is made public on a SoSource Media website, we will not remove it by request. As a user, you are responsible for your own communications and are responsible for the consequences of their posting.

Comments will only be considered for removal (i) in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order, or (ii) in response to a law enforcement agency’s request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take actions regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of another person, violations of our terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

All comments and other content contributed to SoSource Media and TVSourceMagazine.com shall adhere to the following policy, and may be edited or removed at SoSource Media’s discretion if it is deemed to be in violation of this policy.

  1. Personal Attacks: Please don’t engage in personal attacks (on authors, other users or any individual), persistent trolling or mindless abuse. The TVSource Magazine community should focus on intelligently discussing topics by furthering the conversation and informing the participants with resourceful and constructive ideas.
  2. Hate speech: Racism, sexism and homophobia will not be tolerated.
  3. Language and Threats: Please watch your language and respect other people’s views, beliefs and emotions. We reserve the right to remove any content that might be found extremely offensive or threatening.
  4. No Spam: Spam and advertising content will be removed.
  5. Smear Tactics: Although we acknowledge criticism of our articles and our writers, we will not allow misrepresentation. We will distinguish between constructive arguments and smear tactics.
  6. Relevancy: Please keep conversations relevant. Off-topic comments are subject to removal in order to keep the thread on track.
  7. Quality: We encourage you to take responsibility for the quality of the conversations in which you’re participating. Maintain intelligent discussions in the TVSource Magazine community by being respectful and considerate.
  8. Help us: Maintain an inviting interaction space by self-policing threads and flagging spam. Although we have a hands-on approach to community engagement, we do sometimes miss problem commenters or trolls. We appreciate your efforts to keep the TVSource Magazine community environment inviting, insightful and constructive. Let the conversations be quality ones.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
