The information we learn from visitors to our Web site (“customers” or “users”) helps us personalize and continually improve our services to you. Here is a non-exclusive list of the types of information we gather about our customers:
We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site, such as names, e-mail addresses and other personal information. You can choose not to disclose certain information, but then you might be limited in the services you can take advantage of on our Web site. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future features for you, and communicating with you.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from the Company. We also may compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below:
We employ other companies and individuals to perform certain services on our behalf. Examples of such third party services may include analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments (if any), and providing customer service. These service providers have access only to the customer information reasonably necessary for the performance of their functions.
It is possible that the Company may, one day, become an acquisition target. In such a transaction, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets and may also be reviewed by the proposed purchaser as part of the evaluation process.
We release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of the Company, our customers, or others, including exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you give us.
The Company does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register on our Web site. If you are under the age of 13, please do not attempt to register on the Web site or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on the Web site. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. We encourage parents to monitor their children’s Internet usage and/or to use web filtering technology to supervise their children’s access to the Internet.
