In this Policy, we refer to two types of user information: Personally Identifiable Information (sometimes referred to as “PII”) and non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information refers to any information that can be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate you. Examples of Personally Identifiable Information include a name, physical address, e-mail address, telephone number, date of birth, or a credit card number.
The Company collects only the PII that you voluntarily provide to us, such as when you register to use the Services or request information, set up a profile, create content, sign up for a special offer, enter a sweepstakes or promotion, or complete a survey. If you engage us in paid services you may also be asked to provide a credit card processor, through which the Company may processes payment, with your credit card and related information for billing purposes.
You might also be asked for, or choose to provide, additional information about yourself that does not, itself, specifically identify you. This is non-Personally Identifiable Information. However, some information of this kind, such as information about your product or service needs, may be required (or merely requested) when you pay for the Services and may be associated with your PII.
Company may also automatically collect other types of non-Personally Identifiable Information as you use the Services, including technical information (such as your internet protocol (“IP”) address, mobile device ID, or browser type) and usage information (such as location data, preferred language, the parts of the sales pages you have visited, which links you have clicked and other information about how you interact with our offerings). This information is anonymous and is not associated with your PII, although it may be associated with other pieces of anonymous information about you.
Personally Identifiable Information may be used in any of the following ways:
Non-Personally Identifiable Information may be used in any of the following ways:
The Company does not sell or trade your Personally Identifiable Information to outside parties. We may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to vendors who help us operate the Website, conduct our business or provide the Services to you, such as credit card processors, customer service centers, or e-mail marketing providers. All such partners are bound to keep your information confidential.
We may disclose Personally Identifiable Information, including to local, state, or federal law enforcement officials, when we believe that the law requires such action, or when required to do so by order of a court or other compulsory legal process. We may also share Personally Identifiable Information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or to prevent harm to the Website.
We may use or distribute information about you and your use of the Services in ways that do not reveal Personally Identifiable Information. For example, we share anonymous user information with advertisers and advertising networks to enable the display of targeted, relevant advertisements. We may also provide anonymous usage data or summary characteristics of our audience to potential partners and advertisers or post such information on publicly accessible areas of the Website.
The security of our user data is very important to us. We store your information securely, using industry-compliant encryption technology. If you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our web forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
Cookies are small files that a website or one of its service providers transfers to your computer’s storage device via your Web browser (if your browser is configured to permit this) that enable its systems to recognize your browser and store certain information. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to your computer, and can only be read by a web server of the website that issued the cookie to you.
The company maintains internal logs of usage of the Services. Logs include information such as IP address, browser type and version, and computer operating system. The company uses logs mainly for internal systems administration and diagnostic purposes, and to detect improper use of the site. Logs may also be used to generate aggregate, non-Personally Identifiable Information for advertisers or other third parties.
Occasionally, we may include or offer third-party products or services on the Website that include links to external websites. For example, advertisements, promotional offers, “free gifts,” and other links on the Company Website or included in an e-mail from the Company, may bring you to external web pages not controlled by Company. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies and terms of service, which will govern the use of any Personally Identifiable Information that you provide. While Company is not responsible for the use of your information by third parties, we nevertheless seek to protect our users and the integrity of our Website, and we, therefore, invite your feedback about these sites.
