Privacy Policy

When you use this site, you agree to the Privacy Statement that follows.  If you do not agree with this Statement or our Terms and Conditions, you should immediately cease use of this site.  

Information We Collect

We are committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to this site.  Accordingly, at this site, we do not collect personally-identifying information from users unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly.  We do not share any information with anyone outside our company. We only collect personal details to give customers access to a control panel, for email communication (there will be an option to opt-out), and for billing purposes.

When you visit our site, your browser automatically sends us an IP (Internet Protocol) address and certain other information (including the type of browser you use). We may use this IP address and other information to give you access to the site and otherwise administer the site. In certain parts of the site, we may ask you to provide us with your name or other information so that we can provide you with information you request, consider your application for registering with us, or take other action indicated in the part of the site where the information is requested. You are under no obligation to provide us with this information, but without it, we may not be able to take the action requested. The site also includes features that allow you and us to communicate by electronic mail or otherwise.

If you choose to use these features, you will be required to provide us your e-mail address and other personally-identifying information (such as your name or street address) we may deem necessary in order to communicate with you electronically or otherwise, or review your request for membership. When you provide any personally identifying information to us, you acknowledge that you are knowingly and voluntarily providing us the information. We will not use such information for marketing purposes, but we may respond to the electronic mail messages you send us, take other action indicated in the part of the site where the information is requested, and use such information for any other business purpose, including sending you subsequent communications concerning this site, or our company’s products and services.

You also should be aware that we collect certain usage information about our site, such as the number and frequency of visitors to certain parts of the site. This data is used only in the aggregate and does not include any personally identifying information.

What Information We Share

We try to make sure that the personally identifying information you provide us remains private. We will not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose the personally-identifying information you provide to anyone outside of our company, and its respective affiliates, successors and service providers, unless we/they are required by law or have a good faith basis for believing that you are in violation of these policies, our Terms of Use, or applicable laws. Please be aware, however, that it may be possible for others to read messages that you send over the Internet, so do not send by e-mail any information that you would like to keep confidential.

We may release personally identifiable if we are required to do so by judicial or governmental authorities, in any legal proceeding between you and us, or in a situation in which public authorities are required to deal with an emergency situation.

Cookies and Web Beacons

Like many companies, we use “cookie” and/or “web beacon” technology on our website. Cookies may tell us whether you have visited our site before or are a new visitor and what material on our site you have viewed.  Web Beacons are tags that can monitor the behavior of a user visiting the Website or sending the e-mail.

Each time a subscriber logs into this site, we store a temporary ‘cookie’ in the browser files of that subscriber’s computer. This cookie is used during your online session to allow you free access to the Subscribers Area, and to store basket contents, without repeatedly requiring you to re-enter your user name and password. When you log off or leave the site, the cookies file is automatically removed.

The cookies we use do not collect any personally identifying information about you or provide us with any way to contact you, and the cookies do not extract any information from your computer.  You may be able to configure your browser to accept or reject all or some cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set — each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences — however, you must enable cookies from this website in order to use most functions on the site.

Information recorded through web beacons is used to report anonymous individual and/or aggregate information about our users.  Aggregate information may include demographic and usage information. No personally identifiable information about you is shared with partners or third parties from this research.  You may choose to opt-out of our using this information for this research. Please click here to opt-out.

Security

We use a variety of security measures including encryption and authentication to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of your personal information under our control.  Registered accounts are secured by your created passwords and we take precautions to insure that member account information is kept private. We restrict access to member information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff.  Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of member account information.  Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time.

We use encryption and authentication tools among other methods to protect your web-based personal information. E-mails you send us are not necessarily secure when they are transmitted to us. If your communication is sensitive or includes highly confidential information, you may want to provide it by post or via the telephone instead. However, credit card information should not be sent to us by fax, post or email as we only accept the use of encrypted online shopping carts to purchase our services online.
We instruct our employees with access to your information that it is to be used only in adherence with the principles set forth in this Privacy Policy and the laws applicable to each specific business. Employees who misuse customer information are subject to disciplinary action.

Choice/Opt-In

Our site gives users the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from us. You can be assured that we never reveal, sell, or make available your email address to anyone for any purpose. This site also gives users options for removing their information from our database in order to stop receiving our communications. You may continue to receive such communications until our system completes the processing of your request.

Other Information You Submit

If you use the communication features of this site to provide us with information other than personally-identifying information, including suggestions about the site, product and advertising ideas, and any other such information, that information will belong to us and may be used, reproduced, modified, distributed and disclosed by us in any manner we choose, without paying compensation to you.  Whenever you voluntarily post public information to Public Forums, that information can be accessed by the public and can in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications.

Links

This web site may contain links to other sites and banner ads that take a visitor to another website. In no case is subscriber information or ‘cookies’ provided to the third party sites.  However, please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information. On the Internet, many sites do attempt to capture visitor information when you browse those sites.

Submission of Others’ Personal Information

From time to time this site may ask you to provide personal details of your family or friends, for example, so that we can send them details of our website. Before providing such information, please ensure that you have obtained their consent to their personal data being used in this way. We will not use these details in any manner that is incompatible with this privacy policy.

Changes To Privacy Policy

We reserve the right, at our complete discretion, to change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting revised terms on the site. It is your responsibility to check periodically for any changes we may make to this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site following the posting of changes to these terms or other policies indicates your accept the changes.
