Personal Information About Children. The Website is targeted primarily for use by adults. Company does not currently market to or create special areas for use by children. Accordingly, Company does not knowingly collect age identifying information, nor does Company knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 years. However, Company hereby advise all visitors to the Website under the age of 13 not to disclose or provide any personally identifiable information on the Website. In the event that Company discovers that a child under the age of 13 has provided personally identifiable information to Company, in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (please see the Federal Trade Commission's website at http://www.onguardonline.gov/articles/0031-protecting-your-childs-privacy-online for more information about this Act), Company will delete the child's personally identifiable information from Company's files to the extent technologically possible.
Information That Company Collects. When User uses the Website, Company may receive and collect certain information. The information that Company may receive and collect depends on what User does when it visits the Website.
Automatically Collected Information. Some types of information are automatically received and collected from User when User visits the Website. This information may include some or all of the following items: (i) the name of the domain and host from which User accesses the Internet including the Internet Protocol ("IP") address of the computer User is using and the IP address of User's Internet Service Provider; (ii) the type and version of Internet browser software User uses and its operating system; (iii) the date and time User accesses the Website, the length of User's stay and the specific pages, images, video or forms that User accesses while visiting the site; (iv) the Internet address of the website from which User linked directly to the Website, and if applicable, the search engine that referred User and any search strings or phrases that User entered into the search engine to find the Website; and (v) demographic information concerning the country of origin of User's computer and the language(s) used by it. Company uses this information to monitor the usage of the Website, assess its performance, ensure technological compatibility with Users' computers, and understand the relative importance of the information provided on the Website. Company may also use this data to conduct statistical analyses on Users' usage patterns and other aggregated data.
Information User May Actively Submit Through the Website. For some of the browsing on the Website, Company neither requires nor collects "User Information." User Information is information that could personally identify User: for example, User's name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and zip code. User can browse the Website and take as much time as User wants to review Company's products without having to submit such User Information. In the following instances, however, Company does need User to actively submit User Information: (i) when User wants to contact Company via electronic means or website submission; (ii) when User utilizes online product ordering; (iii) when User completes a survey; or (iv) when User joins Company's contact lists. User hereby acknowledges that e-mail or other forms of electronic communication, including website submission, are inherently not secure and/or confidential means of communication.
E-Mail Communication. When User sends an email to Company or provides User's email address to Company, User is communicating with Company electronically and consents to receive communication from Company electronically. Company may retain the content of such email(s), User's email address, and Company response(s) in order to service User's needs. Company may use the data that User provides to send User email or correspondence via other means.
Information is subject to disclosure in response to judicial or other governmental subpoenas, warrants, and court orders served on Company in accordance with their terms, as otherwise required by applicable law, or in response to requests by law enforcement.
Information may be disclosed: (i) to carefully selected third-party service providers so that they may provide services to User (e.g., third-party payment processors); to provide customer service; (ii) to send or email Marketing Communications; (iii) to maintain Company's customer loyalty program and database and other programs; (iv) to monitor the activity of the Website; (v) to conduct surveys; and (vi) to administer contests or sweepstakes.
Information may be disclosed and transferred if Company or its business is sold or offered for sale to another company or person(s), if a petition for relief under the United States Bankruptcy Laws is filed by or against us, or if Company becomes subject to an order of appointment of a trustee or receiver.
Linking to Third-Party Websites. When User click on links on the Website which take User to third-party websites, User may be subject to the third-party's privacy policies. While Company supports the protection of privacy on the Internet, Company cannot be responsible for the actions of any third-party websites. Company encourage User to read the posted privacy policies of any and every website User visits, whether User is linking from the Website or browsing on its own.
Access to and Managing User Information. Company believes it is important for User to be able to: (i) find out what information User has provided to Company through the Website; (ii) update User Information; and (iii) "opt out" of receiving future Marketing Communications. To inquire about User Information or "opt" out of receiving future Marketing Communications, User may send an e-mail with User's request and current contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. If User sends an e-mail request, User should include its full name, address, and phone number and indicate the specific nature of User's request. If User wants to "opt in" or "opt out" of receiving Marketing Communications, specifically what type of Marketing Communication (e.g., e-mail or direct mail) User wishes to receive or stop receiving. This will ensure Company identifies User correctly in Company's systems and accurately processes User's request. Company will take appropriate steps to implement User's request, but due to production, mailing and system timelines, it may take up to ten (10) business days for e-mails. Until that change takes effect, User may still receive or not receive Marketing Communications from Company's. Even though User may have "opted out" of receiving Marketing Communications, User may still receive business-related communications.
What User Needs to Do to Protect its Information. User has several options when deciding how it can best protect User Information. One option is simply not to volunteer it. As stated above, this approach would allow User to still visit the Website, although it will prevent User, for example, from ordering products via the Website or providing Company with comments or questions relating to the Website. The Federal Trade Commission's website, www.ftc.gov, also offers useful information about how to protect personally identifiable information provided to a website.
