Collection and Use of Personal Information
We collect certain information from our visitors through server logs and cookies. If you sign up as a Registered User, we collect additional information from you during the registration process and every time you log in using your username and password. We also may collect information from you by e-mail. These activities are explained more fully below.
Web Beacons and GIF Files. The Website may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may also include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. Some of these Web beacons may be placed by our marketing consultants to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. Our marketing consultants may use Web beacons to place cookies on your computer, allowing them to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or e-mails and to compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, to enable us and our marketing consultants to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to the Website and how you use the Website. We do not use Web beacons to collect or access your personal information.
Registration Information. When you sign up as a Registered User, we ask or permit you to provide four general types of information:
(1) Contact information, such as your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. We use your contact information to contact you in connection with your activities and transactions on the Website. We may also include commercial messages and advertisements in our e-mail and other communications with you using your contact information.
(3) Payment information, such as your credit card number, expiration date, and card security code. We use your payment information to bill you for your purchases of services on the Website. By making a purchase, or by engaging in any other kind of activity or transaction that uses payment information, you consent to our providing your payment information to our payment processors and such other entities as we determine are necessary to support and process your activities and transactions. Those entities may include credit card issuers, banks, and other financial institutions used to process and support the transaction or activity. Any of those entities may be authorized to use your payment information in accordance with our contracts with those entities and following their own privacy policies, over which we have no control, and you agree that we are not responsible or liable for any of their actions or omissions. Additionally, you agree that we may use and disclose all such information to such entities in the same manner in which we are entitled to use and disclose any other information that we collect from you.
Protection and Security of Personal Information
We use a variety of safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, theft, or unauthorized access or disclosure, including but not limited to password authentication, monitoring, auditing, firewalls, and encryption. Although we make every reasonable attempt to protect the personal information that you share with us, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Also, please note that e-mail is not secure against interception. You are transmitting all such information over the Internet at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to protect its security on our systems. Although we do not directly control the hosting companies that own and operate the servers on which we collect and store your personal information, our contracts with those hosting companies obligate them to protect the security and integrity of your personal information as described above.
If you are a Registered User, your access is password protected. We recommend that you do not reveal your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail. Additionally, each time you log in as a Registered User, you should remember to log out at the end of each session. You may also wish to close your browser window when you are finished. Those actions help to prevent others from accessing your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or use a computer in a public place.
Access to Information
Our Website is intended for adults only, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 18 years old.
