How we use your personal information:
You may at your discretion provide information to us in order to receive information about our products or services displayed on this website, to purchase such products and services, to receive correspondence, or to become involved one of our initiatives. If you purchase or request products and services from us, we may also request your preferences for receiving further marketing or promotional material.
We use your information in order to make the website more useful to you and to provide you with greater value. We are committed to the protection of personal privacy and have adopted a policy to protect your information. We will not share any information about our members with 3rd parties, period.
We may contact you from time to time regarding your purchases or the services to which you have subscribed. We may also send you announcements from time to time about new promotions that you might find useful.
We welcome feedback from you about all aspects of its website. We store feedback that users send to us to administer and refine our service as well as to improve or promote this site. We will not publish your name in connection with any information you provide without your permission.
Your privacy is very important to us. 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.
Subscribers may be asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for our Products or Services including name, address, telephone number, billing information (such as a credit card number), the type of personal computer being used to access the Services, or other information. The personal information collected from Subscribers during the registration process is used to manage each Subscriber’s account (such as for billing purposes). This information will not be shared with 3rd parties.
However, in instances where our company and a partner jointly promote our Services, we will not provide the 3rd party with any personal information.
We may generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from personal information Subscribers provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Subscribers). As explained in more detail below, we may use this aggregated and non-identifying information to sell advertisements that appear on the Services.
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 3rd 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 use the personal information you provide to process that order. We do not share this information with 3rd parties.
Responses to Email Inquiries
When Visitors or Subscribers send email inquiries to our company, 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 products and services we offer and how we provide them to you.
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 response 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 will not be shared with 3rd parties.
Our company may offer polls, contests, sweepstakes, drawings, games, content, or other promotions that are sponsored by or co-branded with third parties. 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. We will not provide these 3rd parties any personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to our company.
Additionally, personally identifiable information may be collected when you order products, enter contests, vote in polls, otherwise express an opinion, subscribe to one of our Services such as our online newsletters, or participate in one of our online forums or communities. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected at these pages include but may not be limited to: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card information, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services. Tgis information will not be shared with 3rd parties.
It is our company’s policy not to use or share the personal information about Visitors or Subscribers in ways described herein.
