You may opt in or opt out of our sharing of your personally identifiable information with third parties for their marketing use by following the directions in the [“Rights to Opt In/Opt Out”] [LINK to Section below] section below.
We may collect both personally identifiable information about you and non-personally identifiable information about you and your visits to this Website.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We collect the browser type and IP address of all Site visitors. Our servers may also record the referring page that linked Users to the Site (e.g., another Web site or a search engine); the pages Users visit on this Site; the Web site Users visit after this Site; other information about the type of Web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings Users are using; any search terms Users have entered on this Site or a referral site; and other Web usage activity and data logged by our Web servers. We also store certain information from Users’ browsers using cookies (small pieces of data stored on the User's computer). Cookies track where Users travel and what Users look at on our Site, and confirm when Users have logged in to the Site. A cookie may enable us to relate Users’ use of the Site to other information about you, including personal information. Cookies can be blocked or removed by a User through the use of browser settings. However, refusing a cookie may, in some cases, preclude Users from using, or negatively impact the display or function of, the Site or certain areas or features of the Site. We also may use “clear GIFs” (aka “Web beacons” or “pixel tags”) or similar technologies in the Site and/or in our communications with you (such as in our e-mails), which help us to verify an individual’s viewing or receipt of a Web page or message, and may enable us to relate such viewing or receipt to other information, including personal information.
Any or all of the above-described activities with respect to non-personally identifiable information may be performed on our behalf by our Service Providers (defined below).
Use of Information
Personal information: We may use personal information of our Users for various purposes, including, for example, to respond to User requests and to provide Users with our product and service offerings. We may also use Users’ personal information to maintain our internal record keeping. We may match information collected from Users through different means or at different times, including both personal information and non-personally identifiable information, and use such information along with information obtained from other sources, including (without limitation) any of our other Web sites and third parties. We also may use personal information provided by our Users, for the purpose of profiling the demographics of Site users. We may use Users’ names and email addresses to send notifications regarding the Site, and otherwise correspond with Users, about products, services, companies, events, sponsored by us and others, that we think might interest our Users. We also may send announcements, alerts regarding messages received from other Users, and service-related notifications. If Users want to stop receiving promotional email messages from us, they may do so by following the directions in the [“Rights to Opt In/Opt Out”] [Link] section below.
Non-personally identifiable information: We use non-personally identifiable information of and about our Users for various purposes. For example, cookies may enable us to relate your use of the Web Site to other information about you, including your Personal Information. Additionally, we use this information for internal system administration, to help diagnose problems with our servers, to analyze this information to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of the Site, to better tailor the Site to our Users’ needs, and to otherwise operate and administer the Site. Such information may also be used to gather broad demographic information, such as country of origin and Internet Service Provider. We may also link this non-personally identifiable information with personal information.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
Service Providers: We may provide information to third party service providers such as server hosts, data management companies, address list hosting companies, e-mail service providers, analytics companies, distribution companies, fulfillment companies and payment processors (collectively, “Service Providers”) in order to facilitate the operation of the Site and its various services and features. These service providers may be provided or granted access to Users’ personal information in order to perform these services on our behalf.
Legally Required Disclosures: We may comply with judicial requests for Users’ personal information, account information, and other information, and make other legally required disclosures. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Site, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
Aggregate Information: Aggregate demographic and other information of and about Users may be published or shared with third parties such as advertisers.
Third Party Marketers: We may provide our Users with an opportunity to receive offers from third parties who have services, products and offers that we think might be of interest to them, and we will do so by sharing the User’s information with such third parties. If Users want us to stop sharing their personal information with third parties for their direct marketing use, they may do so by following the directions here.
Corporate Change of Control: In the event we, or a significant portion of our assets, are acquired by or transferred to one or more third parties as a result of an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation or liquidation, personal information and other User information may be one of the transferred assets.
Rights to Opt In/Opt Out
You may have the right to “opt in” and/or “opt out” of certain of our uses of your personal information. For example, at the time you are requested to provide personal information on this Site or in connection with our communications, you may have the opportunity to elect to, or not to receive correspondence from us. You may opt out of our promotional e-mails by clicking on an opt-out or “unsubscribe” link within the promotional e-mail you receive. Please understand that if you opt out of receiving promotional correspondence from us, we may still contact you in connection with your relationship, activities, transactions and communications with us. Please also note that if you opt out of receiving promotional correspondence from us at your email address, we still may send messages to you (including promotional messages) through the Site’s messaging system.
If you want us not to share (or stop sharing) your personally identifiable information with third parties for their direct marketing use, please send us an email at: email@example.com. If you do request to have us stop sharing your personally information with other entities for their direct marketing purposes, please note that we will not be responsible for any communications that you may receive from entities that received your personally identifiable information prior to the date of your request. In these cases, please contact that entity directly.
Third Party Advertising on the Site
Links to Third-Party Websites
While we will endeavor to protect the security and integrity of any sensitive personal information that may be provided to this Site, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers.
If you contact us by e-mail, via a messaging feature, or by a “contact us” or similar feature on the Site, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third party could view information you send by these methods in transit. We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission.
In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of any user’s personal information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify such user of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail. You consent to our use of e-mail as the means of such notification. However, if you do not want to be notified by email for this purpose, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accessing, Changing or Removing Information
The Site is intended solely for users who are thirteen (13) years of age or older. We do not knowingly collect personal information from Users under 13 without prior parental consent. If you are under the age of 13, please do not provide personal information of any kind whatsoever. If we learn that we have received personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will take steps to delete such information or to obtain verifiable parental consent.
