We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act); we do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. The Websites, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older. If we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under the age of 13, we will remove that user’s information from our databases. Although we do not request or accept information from you, if you are between the ages of 13 and 18 and you attempt to send any information to us, you must obtain your parent’s permission before transmitting information to us over the internet. By using the Websites, you are warranting and representing to us that you are over the age of 18, and if you are between the ages of 13 and 18, you have your parent’s permission to use the Websites.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
We use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the collection of Personal Information is limited to that which is necessary to fulfill the purposes identified below. If we use your information in a manner different than the purpose for which it is collected, we will ask you for your consent prior to such use.
Information About You. We do not allow anyone to set up an account. We only collect information to track the locations from which users access our Websites to analyze and interpret traffic to our site.
Feedback. If you contact us to provide feedback or ask a question, we will record any Personal Information and other content that you provide in your communication so that we can effectively respond to your communication.
Log Files. Any time you visit any of the Websites, our servers automatically gather information from your browser (such as your IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks) to analyze trends, administer the site, prevent fraud, track visitor movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information. For example, we may log your IP address for system administration purposes. IP addresses are logged to track a user’s session. This gives us an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting. We do not share the log files externally.
Cookies. We may cookies to your computer in order to uniquely identify your browser and improve the quality of our service. The term “cookies” refers to small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the site. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). Persistent cookies can be removed by following your browser help file directions. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Websites may not work properly or at all.
E-mails. We may require an e-mail address from you if you request information from us. We may use your e-mail for promotional (e.g., newsletters, new product offerings, special discounts, event notifications, special third-party offers) purposes. E-mail messages we send you may contain code that enables our database to track your usage of the e-mails, including whether the e-mail was opened and what links (if any) were clicked. If you would rather not receive promotional e-mails from us, please see the section below labeled “Emails and Opt-Out”. We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to our services, such as service announcements and administrative messages, and transactional messages about any orders that you place, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.
Transfer of Information
We may share your Personal Information with third-parties to conduct quality assurance testing, provide technical and customer support, or provide specific services, such as synchronization of your contacts with other software applications, in accordance with your instructions. These third-parties are required not to use your Personal Information other than to provide the services requested by you.
We may disclose information in the aggregate to third-parties relating to user behavior in connection with actual or prospective business relationships with those third-parties, such as advertisers and content distributors, but no individual information will be disclosed along with such aggregated information. For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, advertising banners.
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit the Websites. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness.
The Websites may contain advertisements or other content that link to third-party websites to which we have no affiliation. Except as set forth herein, we do not share your Personal Information with those third-parties, and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We suggest you read the privacy policies on all such third-party websites before providing any information on such websites.
