This policy explains what information we collect about you when you visit our Website and how we handle such information. The information we collect and how we use such information depends upon what you do when visiting our Site.
Information Collected from All Visitors
For all visitors, we collect and store non-personally-identifiable information including the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account); the date and time you access our Site; and the Internet address of the Website from which you linked directly to our Site. We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our Site, to help us make our Site more useful to visitors, to help diagnose problems, to help identify you, and to generally administer the Website.
Information Collected from Certain Visitors
In addition to the general information collected from all visitors to the Website, in order to access some of the features of the Website, you will be required to disclose additional information.
Additionally, if you contact the Company by email or by filling out a form on our Website, you will also be providing us personal information (e.g. your name, addresss, telephone number, email address or other information. The Company will store such information in order to respond to or process your request or otherwise resolve the subject matter of your submission.
Protection of Information
The Company takes precautions to ensure that all information provided by visitors is kept private. We use reasonable measures to protect such information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to such information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of such account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of such information at any time.
Sharing of Information
We may share information with third party suppliers who agree to protect its confidentiality. This information may include the aggregate data collected regarding the visitors to the Website and certain information that may have been provided to the Company by you. The Company may also choose to share aggregate usage information for marketing purposes; provided, however, that this will generally not include the sharing of your personal information.
From time to time, the Company may also enter into a special relationship with another company that is not owned by the Company to provide additional features on the Site. These special relationships may include “powered by” partners, business partners, sponsors, and co-branded Sites (referred to here as “Co-Branded Pages”). These might include, for example, pages that share our name and that of another entity. You should look for a specific privacy statement on any such Co-Branded Page. Any personal information that you provide when signing up at one of those Co-Branded Pages may be shared with our third-party partner. You should also check our partner’s Website for information regarding its privacy policies.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, including technical support services. To perform those functions, it may be necessary for them to obtain access to the Company’s databases and servers, which may contain personally identifying information about users. They are not permitted to use such access or information for any purpose other than that for which they are retained, but the Company cannot guarantee that such third parties will not abuse their access privileges.
We will also disclose any information we possess in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal requirements, and such information might be used by the receiving party to determine your identity, your web usage and online behavior or other things about you. We generally do not inform users of such requests for information, although we might try to do so in some cases.
If this Site is sold to, or merges with, another company not owned by the Company, you should expect that some or all of the information collected from this Website may be transferred to the buyer or surviving company. If so, the Company will seek to obligate the acquiring company to use any personal information transferred by this Site in a manner consistent with this Policy, but cannot guarantee that it will be able to impose that requirement or that the acquiring company will comply.
Except as otherwise described in this Policy, the Company will not disclose personal information to any third party unless we believe that disclosure is necessary: (1) to conform to legal requirements or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other legal process received by the Company, whether or not a response is required by applicable law; (2) to enforce the Company Terms of Services Agreement or to protect our rights; or (3) to protect the safety of the members of the public and users of the service.
If at any time you would like your personal information deleted from the Website or the Company’s records, please email us with your request and we will delete this information.
Feedback and other comments and statements that you choose to submit to the Company by any means – whether by email, telephone, letter or any other means – shall be considered nonconfidential and the Company is free to use such information on an unrestricted basis. You are strongly urged not to post any personal information that you expect to be kept private.
