What Basic Information Does the Company Collect?
We may ask you for certain information referred to on the Site as “personal information,” which includes information that pertains to your identity. Such information may include, but is not limited to, items such as your name, address, date of birth, age, gender, state of residence, e-mail address, telephone number, and/or financial data (which may include your credit card or debit card number). You may be required to provide personal information to access or use certain parts of our website or features of the Site. If you do not provide the requested personal information, you may not be able to access or use the features of the Site where such information is requested.
What Additional Information Does the Company Collect?
Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
Click Stream Data.
When you visit the Site we may also collect “click stream data” (server address, domain name). This information can be combined with information you have provided to us by registering, for example, which will enable us to analyze and better customize your visits. We may use click stream data for traffic analysis or e-commerce analysis of our website, to determine which features of our site are most or least effective or useful to you.
We may use your personal information to verify your identity, to check your qualifications, and to follow up with transactions initiated on the Site. Additionally, we share certain categories of information we collect from you in the ways described in this Policy.
We may share demographic data with advertisers and other third parties only on an aggregate (i.e., non-personally-identifiable) basis. We may share contact data and financial data with our business partners who assist us by performing core services (such as hosting or data storage and security) related to our operation of the Site. If you do not want us to share your contact data with any third parties, please contact us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below and expressly notify us of such request. Additionally, we may analyze visits to the Site and learn about the interests of our visitors in the aggregate and also on a personal level to better understand your interests and needs, so we can improve our products and services and deliver to you the type of content, features and promotions that you are most interested in.
We may use anonymous information to analyze the Site traffic, but we do not intend to examine this information for individually identifying information. In addition, we may use anonymous IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Site, or to display the content according to your preferences. Traffic and transaction information may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on an aggregate and anonymous basis.
Disclosure of Personal Information.
We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the Company or its affiliates, (2) protect and defend the rights or property of the Company or the users of the Site, or (3) act under exigent circumstances to protect the safety of the public or users of the Site.
Sale of Information.
In order to accommodate changes in our business, we may sell portions of our Company or purchase other companies or assets, including the information collected through the Site. If Company or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will be one of the assets transferred to the acquirer.
Access to Information.
At this time, we do not maintain any procedures for you to review or request changes to the information that we collect about you, except that you may request that we remove all information about you from our database by contacting us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below and expressly requesting such removal.
We understand and respect that not all individuals may want to allow us to share their information with other select companies. If you do not want us to share your information, please contact us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below. Upon receipt of your express written request not to share your information we will remove your name from lists we share with other companies as soon as reasonably practicable. When contacting us, please clearly state your request and your name, mailing address, email address, and phone number.
Notwithstanding your request, under the following circumstances, we may still be required to share your personal information:
If we respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process, or if we need to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
If we believe it is necessary to restrict or inhibit any user from using the Site, including, without limitation, by means of "hacking" or defacing any portion thereof.
The Site has security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that we obtain from you. Please keep in mind, however, that whenever you give out personal information online there is a risk that third parties may intercept and use that information.
While the Company strives to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online. By using the Site, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we do not guarantee the security of any data provided to or received by us through the Site and that any personal information, general information, or other data or information received from you through the Site is provided to us at your own risk, which you expressly assume.
