Information Sharing & Disclosure
At AICUR.NET, we highly value your privacy and are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information. We do not rent, sell, or share your personal information with individuals or nonaffiliated companies unless it is necessary to provide the products or services you have requested, with your explicit permission, or under the following circumstances:
Trusted Partners: We may provide your information to trusted partners who work on behalf of AICUR.NET under strict confidentiality agreements to support the site and deliver services. These partners may utilize your personal information to facilitate communication about offers from AICUR.NET. However, these companies are not authorized to independently use or disclose your information.
Aggregate Non-Personal Information: On occasion, we may share aggregated, non-personal information with third parties regarding the usage of our site and services. This information is typically presented in statistical form, such as the number of AICUR.NET users in a specific geographical area or within a particular age group.

Additionally, we may share personal information to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, potential threats to individuals’ physical safety, violations of AICUR.NET’s Terms of Service, or as otherwise required or permitted by law.
Third-Party Collection: If your personal information is collected by a third party that is not our agent or service provider, you will be promptly notified. This will allow you to make an informed decision on whether or not to share your information with that particular party.
We understand the importance of maintaining the privacy and security of your personal information at AICUR.NET. Rest assured that we adhere to the practices outlined above and will continue to prioritize the protection of your data.
Use of Personal Information with Tell-A-Friend Features
If you decide to utilize our referral service to inform a friend about our site, we will request your friend’s name and email address. We will then send a one-time email to your friend, inviting them to visit the site. Please note that AICUR.NET does not retain this information. It is solely used to send the one-time email and track the effectiveness of our referral program.
Use of Personal Information with Marketing Partners and Co-Registration
In cases where AICUR.NET and a marketing partner collaborate to offer special value or free offerings to our users, we may share your personal information with these partners. By signing up for these promotions and receiving items through them, you explicitly consent to AICUR.NET sharing your personal information (referred to as “co-registration”) with these partners. Consequently, you will become subject to their respective privacy policies, which may differ from those of AICUR.NET.

Similar to many other websites, AICUR.NET utilizes cookies. A cookie is a small text file containing a string of code that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive for storage. By using cookies, AICUR.NET is able to recognize you when you use your web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) to connect to our site. This enables us to present you with personalized web pages and options, tailoring your experience to your specific interests. For instance, instead of seeing a generic welcome page, you may encounter a personalized welcome page displaying your site username and information about products or services that align with your preferences.
You have the option to configure your browser settings to reject cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being sent. However, please note that cookies are essential for taking full advantage of the features offered by AICUR.NET, and they are required for the proper functioning of the site. We encourage you to keep cookies enabled for a seamless browsing experience.
Cookies fall into the subcategories below.
Essential Cookies. Certain cookies are utilized for specific purposes that are essential to your secure use and navigation of the Site. Without them, aicur.net may not be able to provide core Site functions and features, resulting in diminished performance. These cookies gather and utilize information such as your server preferences, single-session data and corresponding identifier, web beacons, log files (detailed below), and other credential-related information. For EU individuals, essential cookies also assist aicur.net in determining whether you require an affirmative consent request in accordance with the GDPR. Essential cookies encompass analytics cookies, which provide us with data that enhances aicur.net’s understanding of its users and allows for improvements to the Site based on the insights gained from such data.
Preference Cookies. Other cookies are employed to collect and process information about your preferences and similar choices in relation to the Site, optimizing your browsing experience. This includes various local preference settings and the geographically-customized version of the Site and related content that you may prefer. Preference cookies include social media cookies, which gather information about your social media usage and any associated data you may have provided (if you access the Site through a social media website or mobile application, social media cookies may be present). Should you wish to modify or alter your social media cookies, kindly review and adjust the settings on your relevant social media account(s).
Advertising Cookies. To support the Site and provide a personalized experience, aicur.net, along with its advertising partners (and/or their third-party analytics providers), utilizes cookies to tailor the content and advertisements you may encounter. These cookies enable targeted advertisements that align more closely with your interests compared to non-targeted advertisements. Certain advertising partners of aicur.net may also employ cookies to monitor or track the performance of their advertising content. Rest assured, aicur.net does not provide user information to advertising partners except in connection with the Site or as required by law.
If you would like to manage your cookie preferences or obtain more information about this practice and your right to decline or opt-out of cookies placed by some or all of these companies, you can do so on the GDPR consent notification upon your initial visit to the site.

At aicur.net, we also utilize web beacons (also known as action tags or single pixel gifs) to track the number of visitors to specific pages. This allows us to assess the popularity and effectiveness of the content posted on the aicur.net website. Additionally, we may use web beacons to access aicur.net cookies within and outside our web pages, as well as in connection with aicur.net products and services. A web beacon is a transparent image placed on a web page that sends a signal when a person visits that page.

Third-Party Ad Serving
We deliver many of the advertisements you see on our network of websites to your web browser. In addition, we allow third-party ad servers or ad networks to display advertisements within our web pages. When your web browser requests these advertising banners from the ad network’s website, these companies can send their own cookies to your cookie file, similar to when you request a web page from a site. It’s important to note that if an advertiser requests to show an advertisement to a specific audience or audience segment and you interact with that ad, the advertiser or ad server may infer that you match the intended audience description. However, please be assured that we only authorize our third-party ad servers to use anonymous cookies for ad delivery and anonymous targeting. They do not collect any personally identifying information about you, nor do we grant them access to such information.
Furthermore, we utilize third-party ad servers to display ads on our behalf across the internet. These ad servers may collect anonymous information about your visits to AICUR.NET and your interactions with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to this and other websites to deliver targeted advertisements for products and services. This anonymous information is collected through the use of industry-standard technologies, such as web beacons or pixel tags, which are employed by most major websites.
Opting Out of Third-Party Ad Servers
If you wish to prevent a third-party ad server from sending and reading cookies on your computer, it is necessary to visit each ad network’s website individually and opt out according to their specific instructions.

However, once your account is deleted, this information will no longer be accessible to the public.
