Data Collection & Personal Data Safety
Our site’s server and our partners’ servers automatically collect an IP address. It is a common thing for a user’s browser to set “Cookies” – these are (when enabled) basically small amounts of data left on the User’s computer after a visit to any web site.
Cookies assist websites in loading faster nest time a user returns to the same sites, as well as for tracking Internet Users’ activities, beginning from a Publisher’s web site or subscription e-mail through an Advertiser’s web site that the Internet User links to from the Publisher’s site or e-mail.
If our visitors re-visits the Advertiser’s site directly, we are able to continue to track the Internet User’s activities on the Advertiser’s site – nothing more.
The Cookies themselves tell us nothing personal about the Internet User who visited our site.
Our site might receive and record some basic everyday contact data, such as name and e-mail addresses of visitors who voluntarily choose to provide us their identity and contact information through our Web site.
Our partners do not provide us with any sensitive purchase data such as banking or credit card information of customers originating from this site.
Online Shopping: At some Web sites, you can purchase products and services or register to receive materials, such as a newsletter, 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. Our company has 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 services or products directly from our company we will use the personal information you provide only to process that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
Online Advertisements: Our company may display our online advertisements. In those cases we share aggregated and non-identifying information about our Visitors and Members collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers.
Additionally, in some instances, we use this aggregated and non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements or joint ventures. For instance, an advertiser or joint venture company tells us the audience they want to reach and provides us an advertisement tailored to the audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information we have collected, we may then display or send the advertisement to the intended audience. Our company does not share personal information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers or joint venture companies.
Responses to Email Inquiries: When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to our company, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. Our company does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.
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 products and services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.
We may take the information we receive from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other customers we may have, 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.
Promotions: Our company may offer polls, contests, sweepstakes, drawings, games, content, or other promotions that are sponsored by or cobranded with third parties. In certain instances, company may have to supply personally identifiable information of the winners to the third parties. Our company has no control over third parties’ use of this information.
You may be entered in a sweepstakes, contest, or other promotion, simply by making a purchase from us or by providing us with personally identifiable information for some other reason or purpose. When the winning entries are chosen, only the names and personally identifiable information of the winners are shared with the entity administering the sweepstakes or contest, so that they can notify the winners.
Special Cases: It is our company’s policy not to use or share the personal information about Visitors of Members in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Public Forums: Please remember that any information you may disclose in any Member Directory, or other public areas of our Web sites or the Internet, becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these public areas.
Our Company’s Commitment to Data Security: 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.
The Bad News
Listen, we will NOT disclose your personal identifying information (which we anyway do not know) to anyone, unless forced to so by some goverment officials. This site uses anonymous user data to create and report the browsing activities, purchasing trends, stats and/or leads from form completion activities of anonymous users.
This site reserves the right to release information on Internet Users if compelled to do so by proper judicial or governmental authorities. Disclosure shall be limited to only to those that this site is compelled to disclose to.
The Good News
The risk of this is minimal, as we do not engage in any illegal activities. And we hope our visitors are nice law keeping boys and girls (or cats), who maintain polite language and good manners, keep away from hacking, raping or smuggling arms or other nasties. You should definitely not engage in illegal drugs and pay more and more taxes in a timely manner.
Cloudy Skies Ahead
However, should cercumstances beyond our power to resist arise, in which a world controlling regime come to rule, with harsh laws restricting any freedoms of speech, movement and robbing all trade, then nothing is safe of the big brother – nowhere.
That grim but possible futur invasion of your privacy could include your hosts, email providers, telcom company, cell phone provider, doctors, shrinks, priests etc., even your kids might be trained to tell and tattle on you. In the name of saving our planet and fighting tax evaders, criminals and terrorists.
So with this bright positivity, just relax and enjoy life. Buy before you die. Eat before you starve. Fear not about tiny non-edible cookies.
At present, all data processing occurs in the United States or on other servers we might use elsewhere.
