Soapdom Privacy Policy

Soapdom is very respectful about the privacy concerns of the visitors to its website.  As a general policy, no personal information is automatically collected from visitors to the Soapdom website.  However, certain non-personal information of visitors is recorded by the standard operation of Soapdom's internet servers.  This information is primarily used to provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor. Information tracked may include the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g. Netscape, I.E., AOL, Firefox), the type of operating system (e.g. Macintosh, Windows) in use by the visitor, and the domain name of the visitor's internet service provider (e.g. AOL, Earthlink, Sprintnet).  Uses of this information include internal review of the number of visitors to the site, but only in an aggregate and non-personally identifiable form.  Email addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors to this site are known to Soapdom only when voluntarily submitted by the visitor.

Personally identifiable information that may be collected in connection with visitors voluntarily filling out contest entry forms, membership subscriptions, registering for the site, etc. is retained by Soapdom. Soapdom will not redistribute or sell to any third party any personal information submitted by you in the course of your using this website.  

In the event of a sale of the company, or the sale of the majority of the assets of the company, or merger or other type of consolidation, or similar business transaction, the company can assign or transfer the users or members information including contact information.

We do not share information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure -- typically by opting in to receive information from a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion on our site. If you do ask us to share your information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third party on a continual basis. To prevent disclosure of your personal information for use in direct marketing by a third party, do not opt in to such use when you provide personally identifiable information on our site. Please note that whenever you opt in to receive future communications from a third party, your information will be subject to the third party's privacy policy. If you later decide that you do not want that third party to use your information, you will need to contact the third party directly, as we have no control over how third parties use information. You should always review the privacy policy of any party that collects your information to determine how that entity will handle your information.

However, some or all non-personal data, in an aggregate form, may be provided or sold to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Soapdom Opt-In

Soapdom will maintain a database and, from time to time, email to that database a notification of upcoming events at Soapdom, or information regarding items of interest to our demographic. We will only email those who have agreed to receive such (opt-in) email or newsletters in advance, either via their member registration, paid subscription, or otherwise voluntarily signing up for any newsletter mailing list, entering Soapdom-sponsored  contest, or the like.  A "removal notice" will be incorporated into each mailing.

3rd Party Advertising Companies

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please see: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp

Cookies

Soapdom may place a "cookie" in the browser files of a Soapdom user's computer.  The cookie itself does not contain any personally identifying information.  The cookie could enable Soapdom to relate a user's use of Soapdom to information that the user has specifically and knowingly provided.  

A Word of Caution

Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, email address, phone number) on bulletin boards or in the chat rooms, that information can be collected and used by other visitors to the site, and may result in unsolicited messages from other people.  

A Note to Parents Regarding Privacy

Soapdom recommends that parents supervise the online activities of their children. Soapdom encourages children to consult with their parents before furnishing any personal data online, and strongly recommends that they do not post personal information in the public forums, i.e. message boards. Blogs, and chat rooms.  

For information regarding parental controls available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment, visit

Your California Privacy Rights
(As provided by California Civil Code Section 1798.83)

A California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (California customer) is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal information was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal information that were disclosed.

However, under the law, a business is NOT required to provide the above-described lists if the business adopts and discloses to the public (in its privacy policy) a policy of not disclosing customer's personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, as long as the business maintains and discloses this policy. Rather, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost free means to exercise that right.

As stated in Soapdom.com's Privacy Policy, we do not share information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure -- typically by opting in to receive information from a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion on our site. If you do ask us to share your information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third party on a continual basis. To prevent disclosure of your personal information for use in direct marketing by a third party, do not opt in to such use when you provide personally identifiable information on our site. Please note that whenever you opt in to receive future communications from a third party, your information will be subject to the third party's privacy policy. If you later decide that you do not want that third party to use your information, you will need to contact the third party directly, as we have no control over how third parties use information. You should always review the privacy policy of any party that collects your information to determine how that entity will handle your information.

A Word of Caution

Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, email address, phone number) on bulletin boards, blogs or in the chat rooms, that information can be collected and used by other visitors to the site, and may result in unsolicited messages from other people. 

California customers may request further information about our compliance with this law by e-mailing info@soapdom dot com. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this e-mail address.

Past Blast

Days of our Lives' Brendan Michael Coughlin enjoys playing Tad and being a new dad

When asked what it is like to play Tad on Days of our Lives, Brendan Michael Coughlin shouts exuberantly, "I love him!"

Coughlin has been playing the so-called behind the scenes instigator for the last two years. He has no family that is ever mentioned on the show, but he is there. He came on as Will's (Guy Wilson) best friend, but when it became clear that Will was gay, Tad did everything but bash and degrade and mock him. The irony? At the recent wedding of Will and Sonny (Freddie Smith), he was best man. Go figure!

"I know. It has been a wild ride. I did a whole turn around, and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed doing the wedding. I really enjoy playing this guy. He is a total goof-off. He means well, but is always on the wrong side of the rope." Coughlin said. "I have grown to love him. He is comic relief. I always had dramatic roles, so this is fun."
