Asian Professional Network.com strives to offer its visitors many advanced technical
features and provides an interactive and personalized experience. This policy covers how
we treat personal information that we collect and receive, including information related to
your use of our products and services. Personal information is information about you that
is personally identifiable, such as your name, address, email address, or phone number,
and that is not otherwise publicly available. We may use personal information subject to
the terms of this privacy policy. Please note this policy applies only to information
collected solely by Asian Professional Network.com and its subdomains ("Asian
Professional Network.com" or the "Site") online, including personal digital assistants
(PDAs) and other similar wireless devices. This policy does not impact information
collected or obtained by Asian Professional Network.com,its owners and their business
units and affiliates, including for example our affiliated newspapers, television stations or
business partners through co-sponsored features and promotions or other means. This
Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that asianprofessionalnetwork.com
does not control.

You may have arrived at this website through a website of one of Asian Professional
Network's Affiliates or business partners. If so, please be aware that Asian Professional
Network may share information you provide Asian Professiona l Network with that third
party and that the third party may use the information according to its own privacy
policy. Please review the policies of that site. Any information you provide to the third
party on its site is governed by the policies of that third party site.

How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities
in which you elect to participate and the services provided. You can visit many pages on
our site without providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provid e
personal information when you register for access to portions of our site, sign up for
membership, request certain features (e.g., newsletters, news updates and other products),
upload content to our user content areas or make a purchase. You may also provide
information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, voting and polling
activities, and other interactive areas of our site.

Like most websites, Asian Professional network.com also collects information
automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our
visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider, your
internet protocol ("IP") address, and information provided by and about your browser.
We also may use "cookie" technology or other tracking technology for purposes such as
storing your user name and password, to spare you from having to re-enter that
information each time you visit, or to control the advertising you see on our site. As we
adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In
certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting
your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may limit your ability to access
certain portions of the site or may require you to re-enter your user name and password.
However, we may not be able to customize the site's features according to your
preferences.

We collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and
advertising. We may also use personal information collected on
asianprofessionalnetwork.com to communicate with you regarding our Terms of Service,
Privacy Policy, site inquiries, products and services offered by
asianprofessionalnetwork.com and our Affiliates and partners, administration of
sweepstakes and contests, processing e-commerce transactions and to request your input
or participation in connection with marketing research, user testing or other similar
activities. We reserve the right to share this information with our Affiliates and with
business partners who may provide services or communicate with you on our behalf.

However, you may use the "Email" feature to send links to articles and other information
from our Site to others through email. The email address(es) that you supply to us
through this service will only be used to send the requested article or other information.

Personal information collected by Asian Professional Network.com may also be used for
other purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting.
Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web
hosting service and our newsletter provider, for example), or who provide billing,
processing, shipping, promotions management or email management may also have
access to information you have provided to complete a function or transaction.

Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used
in many ways. As one example, we may combine information about your usa patterns
with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most
or what features are most attractive. Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared
with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to identify or contact you
individually.
