Privacy Policy
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
We have created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to
privacy and security. This Privacy Policy describes how our company collects
information from all end users of our Internet services (the "Services")-those who
access some of our Services but do not have accounts ("Visitors") as well as
those who may purchase Products and/or pay a monthly service fee to subscribe
to the Service ("Members")-what we do with the information we collect, and the
choices Visitors and Members have concerning the collection and use of such
information. We request that you read this Privacy Policy carefully.
Personal Information Our Company Collects and How It Is Used
Introduction: Our company collects information in different ways from Visitors
and Members who access the various parts of our Services and the network of
Web sites accessible through our Service. We use this information primarily to
provide a customized experience as you use our Products and Services, and
generally, do not share this information with third parties. However, we may
disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission
beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such
disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below.
Registration: Members 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), and the
type of personal computer being used to access the Services. The personal
2/17/2020 Privacy Policy 2/9
information collected from Members during the registration process is used to
manage each Member's account (such as for billing purposes). This information
is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special
However, in instances where our company and a partner jointly promote our
Services, we may provide the partner certain personal information, such as the
name, address, and username of persons who subscribed to the Services as a
result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the partner
to assess the results of the promotion.
In this instance, personal information may not be used by the partner for any
other purpose. We may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles
from 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-identifying information to sell
advertisements that appear on the Services.
Our Company Partners and Sponsors: Some products and services may be
offered to Visitors and Members in conjunction with an affiliate, independent
contractor seller or non-affiliated partner. To provide Visitors and Members some
of these products and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain
personal information. In these instances, you will be notified before any such
data is collected or transferred and may decide not to use that particular service
or feature.
Additionally, our partners may have advertisements or co-branded Web Pages
that are cosponsored by an affiliate, independent contractor seller, or nonaffiliated
partner. Our company may share non-identifying and aggregate
information (except as described above), but not personal information, with such
partners in order to administer the co-branded products or services offered.
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
2/17/2020 Privacy Policy 3/9
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.
2/17/2020 Privacy Policy 4/9
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.
2/17/2020 Privacy Policy 5/9
However, we may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members, or
information regarding your use of the Services or Web sites accessible through
our Services, for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is
reasonable to do so, including: credit agencies, collection agencies, merchant
database agencies, law enforcement, or to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic
Communications Privacy Act, the Child Online Privacy Act, regulations, or
governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that
is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may
be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or Terms Of Service, or other user policies;
to operate the Services properly; or to protect our company and our Members.
