We want to make your experience on the Internet as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, and we want you to use the Internet’s vast array of information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.
Your Privacy is Very Important to Us.
Personal Information Collected & How it is Used
We collect information in different ways from Visitors and Members who access the various parts of our Services and the network of Web sites accessible through our Service. We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Services. We may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that law requires such disclosure or other special cases described below.
Members are asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for our Services including name, address, telephone number, billing information (such as a credit card number), and the type of personal computer being used to access the Services. The personal information collected from Members during the registration process is used to manage each Member’s account (such as for billing purposes). In instances where we and a partner jointly promote the Services, we may provide the partner certain personal information, such as the name, address, and username of persons who subscribed to the Services as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the partner to assess the results of the promotion. In this instance, the partner may not use personal information for any other purpose.
We may use your name, address and phone number to contact you offline. We may also share this information with certain direct marketing companies so that they are able to contact you about services and products they think may be of interest to you. If you do not wish us to contact you offline, receive emails or allow us to share your information with other marketing companies, please contact us.
By providing us with your email address on this website, or any other services through this website, you agree to receive email marketing from us and our third party advertisers. You agree that such act constitutes a purchase, an inquiry and/or an application for purposes of Telemarketing Sales Rule, 16 C.F.R. & 310 et seq., as amended from time to time (the “TSR”). Notwithstanding that your telephone number may be listed on the Federal Trade Commission’s or a State’s Do-Not-Call List, we retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the TSR or such States’ laws, rules and regulations. Moreover, by registering with, or requesting information from, a third-party advertiser at our through this website, such action constitutes a purchase, an inquiry and/or an application with the respective third-party advertiser for purposes of the TSR and you may be contacted via email, direct mail and/or telemarketing by such third party advertiser in accordance with the TSR.
At some Web sites, you can purchase products and services or register to receive materials, such as a catalog or new product and service updates. In many cases, you may be asked to provide contact information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information. If you complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift order sent directly to a recipient, you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient’s name, address, and phone number. We have no control over the third parties’ use of any personal information you provide when placing such an order. Please exercise care when doing so.
If you order products or services directly from us we will use the personal information you provide only to process that order.
Responses to Email Inquiries
When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to us, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive.
Voluntary Customer Surveys
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary. We take the information we receive from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other customers to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated; non-personally identifying information may be shared with third parties.
We may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members, or information regarding your use of the Services or Web sites accessible through our Services, for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or other user policies; to operate the Services properly; or to protect us and our Members. In the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
Advertisers and partners may also use their own cookies. We do not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them.
Protecting children's privacy is especially important to us. It is our policy to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. We recommend that children ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to us, or to anyone else online.
Please remember that any information you may disclose in public areas of the Internet becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these public areas.
Services and Web sites we sponsor have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information.
