PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED BY OUR COMPANY AND HOW IT IS USED
Our company collects information in different ways from Visitors and Members who access the various parts of our Services and the network of websites accessible through our Service. We use this information primarily to provide you with a personalized experience while using our Products and Services and generally do not share this information with third parties. However, we may disclose the personal information collected if we have received your permission in advance or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below.
Members may be required to provide certain personal information when registering for our Products or Services, including name, address, phone number, billing information (such as a credit card number), and the type of personal computer used to access the Services. Personal information collected from Members during the registration process is used to manage each member’s account (for example, for billing purposes). This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances, however, in cases where our company and a partner jointly promote our Services, we may provide the partner with certain personal information, such as name , the address and username of the individuals who subscribed to the Services as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the partner to evaluate the results of the promotion.
In this case, the partner cannot use personal information for any other purpose. We may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from the personal information Members provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Members). As explained in more detail below, we may use this aggregated and non-identifiable information to sell advertisements that appear on the Services. Our Business Partners and Sponsors: Some products and services may be offered to visitors and members in conjunction with an affiliate, independent selling contractor, or unaffiliated partner. In order to provide Visitors and Members with some of these products and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain personal information. In these cases, you will be notified before such data is collected or transferred and you may decide not to use that particular service or feature. Additionally, our partners may have co-branded web pages or advertisements that are co-sponsored by an affiliate, independent selling contractor, or unaffiliated partner. Our company may share non-identifiable and aggregated information (except as described above), but not personal information, with such partners to administer the co-branded products or services offered. Online shopping: On some websites, you can purchase products and services or sign up to receive materials, such as a newsletter, a catalog, or updates on new products and services. 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 use by third parties of any personal information that you provide when placing such an order. Be careful when doing so.
If you order services or products directly from our company, we will use the personal information you provide us only to process that order. We do not share this information with third parties, except to the extent necessary to complete that order. Online Ads: Our company may display our ads online. In those cases, we share aggregated and non-identifiable information about our Visitors and Members collected through the registration process, as well as through surveys and online promotions with these advertisers. Additionally, in some cases, we use this aggregated and non-identifiable information to deliver personalized advertisements or joint ventures. For example, an advertiser or a joint venture tells us the audience they want to reach and provides us with an ad tailored to the audience. Based on the aggregated and non-identifiable information that we have collected, we may display or deliver the ad to the intended audience. Our company does not share personal information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers or joint ventures.
Email Inquiry Responses:
When visitors or members send email inquiries to our company, the return email address is used to respond to the email inquiry that 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 part.
Voluntary Customer Surveys – We may periodically conduct individual and business customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us improve the types of products and services we offer and how we deliver them to them. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party. Participation in our surveys is voluntary. We may take the information we receive from people who respond to our Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with responses from other customers that we may have, to create broader generic responses to survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industrial sector or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services for you and to develop new services and products. This aggregated non-personally identifiable information may be shared with third parties. Special Cases: It is our company policy not to use or share personal information about members’ visitors in ways other than those described above without also providing you with the opportunity to opt-out or prohibit such unrelated uses.
