SCOPE OF POLICY
This policy applies to our treatment of personally identifiable information that we collect through this Website and when you use services we offer via the Website. The policy does not apply to practices of companies whose sites may be linked to this Website. For access to the privacy policies of such linked sites, please refer to the information provided by such sites at their home pages. Also see the paragraph below under the heading “Hypertext Links”.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
We collect personally identifiable information when you access the Website, and when you use the Website to request information or other services from us. On such occasions, we ask for your name, email address, phone number, zip code and personal information concerning your interests, occupation, gender and other demographic information. We also receive and record information from server logs and your browser (including cookie information as described below) relating to pages requested and the like.
We do not seek to collect such information from persons under the age of 16. If you are under the age of 16, please do not submit any such information to us. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 18 who has provided such information to us, please inform us (through the Website or email address listed above) and we will remove such information from our database as described further below.
In addition, no person (of any age) is required to provide us with the personally identifiable information we request. If you do not wish to provide such information, you are free not to do so. Your provision of requested information to us through our Website or other means is presumed by us to be voluntary and with your consent to the uses described herein. If after submitting personally identifiable information to us, you wish to “opt-out,” please contact us as noted above and we will remove your information from our database as set forth below in the section titled “Managing Your Information.” Please know that such a decision will not stop advertising or content that is generated prior to the time when we can accomplish the removal of your information.
We use the information you provide to us to customize advertising and content that we present to you, to contact you concerning specials and new products and to enhance our product offerings. We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to any third party except when:
- You have been given an opportunity to “opt out” of sharing the information and have declined to exercise that right within the time period provided;
- We must share the information in order to provide a product or service that you have requested, in which case we will demand that any third party we use to fulfill your order agree that it does not have the right to use the personally identifiable information other than to fulfill your request; or
- We are required to respond to a subpoena, court order or other legal process requiring such disclosure.
In addition, we may share your information with our strategic partners and other third parties with whom we have a written agreement that provides for a cooperative, mutually beneficial commercial relationship. In these cases, we may not give you notice or an opportunity to opt out, but we will obligate that third party to treat your information as confidential, and not to use your information for any purposes other than those for which we are authorized to use it.
MANAGING YOUR INFORMATION
You are entitled to request access to and correction of all your personal data collected by us via this Web site, as well as to require us to delete your data if you no longer want us to process it. You can make such a request or a related inquiry by contacting us. For contact information, email email@example.com. Please note that there may be a small charge for making an access request or it may be free, depending on the circumstances. You can find out more details by emailing or calling us as provided above. We will keep your data as long as it is reasonably necessary for the purposes described in this Statement. You may choose not to receive unsolicited marketing material from us, and you have the right to request deletion of your account information, subject to our need to keep appropriate archives of our business operations. You will appreciate that fulfilling requests regarding your information will take time. Please be patient. We will attend to all requests as soon as reasonably possible in light of the circumstances. We prioritize requests (e.g., requests to remove information about minor children is a higher priority than updating your email address) and, accordingly, your request won’t necessarily be dealt with in order or receipt.
We employ reasonable measures to maintain all personally identifiable information provided by you on computer servers in a controlled and secured environment in an effort to hinder unauthorized access, loss, alteration, use or disclosure of such information. However, the nature of the Internet is such that information may be transmitted over networks without appropriate security measures and may be accessed, deleted, altered, used or disclosed by unauthorized persons.
Because of the international nature of the services and products provided by this Website, and the nature of our business, personal data may (subject to applicable law) be transferred internationally throughout our world-wide network (details of which are available on request by emailing or calling us as provided above) for the purposes described above. This may mean that personal data is transferred to countries that do not have laws or regulations which protect personal data as extensively as the United States, where the server for this Website is located. We use reasonable measures to limit the disclosure of the data you provide to us only to certain of our staff and the staff of our affiliated companies (e.g., staff whose job it is to process your inquiries and survey answers or otherwise to administer the Website, and those staff involved in the provision of those of our services and products which may be of interest to you) and to require that they process the data only for the purposes identified in this Statement.
MODIFICATIONS TO THIS POLICY
We may make modifications or amendments to this policy from time to time. In the event that such changes alter how we gather, process, use or discloses your personally identifiable information, we will post such changes on our Website before they are implemented.
