What Information Do We Collect?

If you prefer to communicate with us through email, we may hold the content of your email communications collectively with your email address and our acknowledgments. We provide equal protection measures for these digital communications that we apply in the preservation of information obtained by mail and phone.
Web Site Use Information
Comparable to other money-making Web sites, our Web site utilizes a conventional technology described as “cookies” (see example below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server log files to assemble information about how our Web site is handled. Information collected through cookies and Web server logs may comprise the date and time of visits, the pages inspected, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites toured just before and just after our Web site.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly addressing, we use private information for plans of conducting our business exercises, providing the products and services you inquired to process your payment, to observe the use of the service, our marketing, and promotional endeavors and enhance our content and service contributions, and customize our site’s content, design, services and for other lawful objectives.
Moreover, such information may be shared with others on an aggregate basis. Individually, identifiable information or business information will not be distributed among companies except as required by law.
Seldom, we may also use the information we accumulate to inform you about significant modifications to our Website, new services, and exclusive offers we think you will find relevant. You may inform us at any time if you do not want to entertain these offers by emailing us at the link presented in the newsletter.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a tiny text record, which often carries a unique secret identifier. When you tour a Web site, that site’s machine asks your machine for approval to store this file in a part of your hard drive mainly assigned for cookies. Each Web site can send its cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences enable it, but (to guard your privacy) your browser only authorises a Web site to locate the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are normally set to receive cookies. However, if you would prefer not to accept cookies, you may modify the arrangement of your browser to reject cookies. If you wish to have your browser reject cookies, it is likely that some sections of our site will not operate as efficiently when seen by the users. A cookie cannot recover any other data from your hard drive or transfer computer viruses.
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
Sharing and Selling Information
We do not share, sell, lend or lease any of the information that uniquely identifies a subscriber (such as email addresses or personal details) with anyone except to the extent it is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested.
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (” interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non-personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.
What About Other Web Sites Linked to Our Web Site?
We are not responsible for the practices employed by Web sites linked to or from our Web site or the information or content contained therein. Often links to other Web sites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our Web site.
How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?
You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain in our database by emailing us at the usual address.
Our Commitment To Data Security:
Please note that your information will be stored and processed on our computers in the United States. The laws on holding personal data in the United States may be less stringent than the laws of your Country of residence or citizenship. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
This site allows visitors to unsubscribe so that they will not receive future messages. After unsubscribing we will discontinue sending the particular messages as soon as technically feasible.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time, our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user, therefore, has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
A Special Note About Children
Children are not allowed to use our services unsupervised, and we ask that children (under the age of 14) do not present any personal information to us. If you are a minor, you can use this service only in association with authority and supervision from your parents or guardians.
