What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our Website you may provide us with two types of information: Personal Information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis, and information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our Website. “Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify you (whether alone or in combination) such as your first and last name, email address, zip code / post code, billing address, shipping address, phone number, age, date of birth, social media handles including Facebook Connect login, and any other information you choose to provide.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
We may use the User Account Information (defined in the Terms) to respond to your submission to further discuss whether Company and User may want to enter into a separate agreement for Company’s services. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Website, published articles, and blog posts we think are of interest to you. Emails may be shared with third-party vendors such as MailChimp and SurveyMonkey to perform certain business and marketing functions. You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by emailing us at the address listed below.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous, unique identifier. When you visit a site, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it.
Note that your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to sites and online services you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, we currently do not alter our practices when we receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser.
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
Our Website is intended for a general audience over 18 years of age and is not directed to children under 13 years of age. We do not intend to collect personal information as defined by the U.S. Children’s Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) (“Children’s Personal Information”) in a manner that is not permitted by COPPA, and for any children’s or mixed-use portions of our Website (if any) we will comply with COPPA. If you are a parent or guardian and believe we have collected Children’s Personal Information in a manner not permitted by COPPA, please contact us by sending a letter to the address below (Attention: Legal) and we will remove such data to the extent required by COPPA.
Parents may want to consider commercially available parental control protections to limit what minors can access online and/or monitor their minor children’s online activities. Examples include: http://www.netnanny.com, http://www.webwatcher.com, and http://www.sentrypc.com. We do not endorse these or other services and are not responsible for them.
We take reasonable steps to have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in place to help protect your Personal Information. This may include, in appropriate circumstances, use of Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) encryption. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information collected through our Website.
