Collection & Use Of Information
We will explicitly ask when we collect information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). Depending on the particular area of the website you are using, your personal information collected, such as name and email address, may be used to create an account and grant you access to the site, process payment information, tailor the website or requested email communications, or to display information that is more relevant to you. We may also compile demographic website use information in the aggregate only. Information collected in aggregate is used to improve the site and when necessary may be available to website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. Your email address is used to only send you information that you have requested.
It is our desire to not send unwanted email to our customers and community. We adhere strictly to a permission-based email policy. We will not send you unsolicited email, commercial offers, or advertisements. Additionally we will not sell, rent, nor loan our contact lists or customer data to any outside organizations without your consent. All of our emails contain a clearly labeled unsubscribe link so you may unsubscribe from any emails that you have requested at any time. Unsubscribe requests are fulfilled immediately and no further communications will be sent to users who have stated that they do not wish to receive the specified information. While IP addresses (address of a computer) are logged to track a user’s session, the user’s identity is anonymous. Tracking IP addresses gives us valuable information about which parts of our site are used most often and what information is viewed.
Information Use By Third Parties
Our policy is to NEVER provide your personal information to third parties without your express permission. We do not release personal information about you as an individual. We do reserve the right to release personal information in the event that we are required to comply with the demands of an appropriately empowered governmental authority, or in any instance that we, in good faith, believe it to be necessary to protect our rights, the rights of others, to protect our security, or that of others or to protect the safety of any persons. We will not sell, rent, loan or allow external access to our contact lists.
To the extent any purchases or payment are processed through a third-party service provider, your information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the transaction. Whenever your information is transmitted to an external service for processing, we employ secure (SSL) encrypted connections to protect your data during transmission.
The Bottom Line
Maintaining your privacy is of paramount importance to us as it helps foster confidence, goodwill, and stronger relationships with you, our customers. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns about our privacy practices, please feel free contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
