Information We Collect
You can browse the website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Once you give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us. If you choose to use our services, we may require you to provide contact and identity information, billing information, shipping information, and other personal information. You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to use a particular service or feature. For every visitor, we automatically collect and store: the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access the website; and the Internet address of the site from which you linked directly to our sites. We use this information only as anonymous aggregate data to determine the number of visitors to different sections of the website, to ensure the website is working properly, and to help us make the website more useful. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the website. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information. We do not install, download or otherwise distribute or utilize spyware on the website.
How We Use Information We Collect
We do not sell, rent, trade or otherwise share any personally identifiable information about our users to any third party. This includes, but is not limited to the names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers of our users. In addition, we will not disclose any personally identifiable financial or security-related personally identifiable information. We may share the personal information you provide with other companies we have hired to provide services for us. These companies, our vendors, are contractually bound to use personal information we share with them only to perform the services we have hired them to provide. We will release information about you if you direct us to do so, if we are required by law to do so, or in other legally limited circumstances (for example, to protect your account from fraud).
How to Unsubscribe from our Mailing List
You have the option at any time to unsubscribe from any emails or services that we provide. Every email that we send to you includes an unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email. Simply click on the unsubscribe link to be removed from our mailing list. You can also write to us at email@example.com to be removed from our mailing list.
Any information that is submitted to us via email becomes our property and may be used at our discretion. The information you send to us may be stored and used to improve the website and our products, or it may be reviewed and discarded.
We use a remarketing service (Google, Facebook, YouTube and other channels) that automatically places our advertising on various websites you visit on the internet. This is made possible by a cookie that is stored on your browser to uniquely identify your browser. You can opt out of this service by visiting Google’s Ads Settings or Facebook Ads Settings tool at anytime.
At times, we work with third-party service partners that employ clear GIFs (also known as pixel tags, single pixel GIFs, web beacons or action tags) for our benefit to help us measure advertising effectiveness. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of our users. The main difference between the two is that clear GIFs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Clear GIFs are not tied to your Personally Identifiable Information and only track the visitor traffic and behavior to and on our Site.
Clear GIFs can “work with” existing cookies on a computer if they are both from the same website or advertising company. That means, for example, that if a person visited “www.anycompany.com”, which uses an advertising company’s clear GIF, the website would match the clear GIFs identifier and the advertising company’s cookie ID number, to show the past online behavior for that computer. This collected information can be shared with the advertising company. We do, at times, provide such information to our third-party advertising service partners, but that information never includes personally identifiable information.
Your information is stored on servers located in the United States. We use secure socket layer (SSL) encryption and firewalls to protect the transmission of the information you submit to us when you use our secure online forms. The information you provide to us is stored securely. However, even the most robust security systems are not foolproof and users should consider this when revealing any personally identifiable information to any party over any form of media. Email that you send us is not necessarily secure against interception. If your email communication includes sensitive information like your Social Security number, your bank account number, or your credit or charge card numbers, contact us through one of our secure online forms or by mail or telephone.
We do not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use the website only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
The website may contain links to other sites. While we try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the content, security, or privacy practices employed by other sites and make no statement on the privacy policies of sites not under our direct control.
Credit Service Provider
We use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, or our privacy practices, you can contact the company by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our business changes regularly; this privacy statement will change also, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the privacy and security statement in effect at the time of collection. You should check this policy frequently to see recent changes.
