Privacy Policy

PHILOSOPHY

 

We've come a long way since starting Rhapsodic Global in February of 2014.. We've never had any interest in tracking people who visit our website, and we don't ever plan on selling your information to other advertisers. We encourage our connections to utilize their own websites to protect their media ownership, and data. We reserve the right to use content provided to us, or donated to us, to promote ourselves and others, but we do not invade the privacy of our site visitors or connections. 

 

We withhold the right to collect data for enhancing our site experience and for providing better services to those who wish to support our site, but we're here to change the advertising paradigm and that means we won't be selling your data ever. 

The data we collect is basic such as location of site visitor, length of time spent on the website, and in some cases which pages or blogs were viewed and how many times. We may share this data with others on our website, social media, or through word of mouth, but not with any identifying information as you can see it shows how many people look at each blog right there at the bottom of each post. 

Sometimes people may submit information to be used in promotions, or custom webpages, or they may post in our forums or comment on blog post and custom webpages. In those cases where someone has submitted content to our site, they are responsible for their content as if they were posting it in a public forum. If something is not to be shared, it must be specified clearly to the Connector responsible for donating said content to the site. 

Connectors may compose elements on our site, and procure data and information from their Connections for the purpose of promoting their productive interest. In such a case a Connector is donating content to our site, they are responsible for the business they conduct with their Connections and making sure they have permission to promote that content on our site. All Connectors are passed through a vetting process before given permission to promote content on our site, but they should still make sure their Connections do not object to their promotions before posting them if possible. 

We will never use your information to slander or misrepresent you, our stories and content should always be truthful and based in authenticity. If their is ever an issue with a Connector misusing your information, please contact the current site manager and they will correct or pull the article immediately as soon as possible.

NO COOKIES ANALYTICS

We use a "No-Cookies" visitor analytics platform you can learn more about here:

THIRD PARTY COOKIES

We are using Facebook Pixel to allow our connections to benefit from a shared pixel audience. You can learn more about Facebook Pixel, and other third party cookies on our site here on this page continued below. Some of our connectors may use link shorteners such as Link Hero to create their own ad targeting, which may include pixel tracking in the link and not on our site. 

Rhapsodic Global does not store cookies on your computer when you browse our site, but many of our third party apps and widgets do. Wix.com uses a alternative type of tracking which is more like taking a thumb print, and uses no cookies, but Facebook Pixel leaves cookies and tracks users to other websites in order to target sponsored post to those users in later ads. 

Facebook Pixel can be useful for small businesses wanting to recapture website traffic back on their social media. Rhapsodic Global has decided to use the Facebook Pixel so that all of our connections can benefit from the shared pixel audience. 

Some of our Connectors may use link shorteners such as, and not limited to the use of "Link Hero" to create links that have their own tracking elements within the link, for the purpose of sharing content to people who have shown an interest in that type of content.
