Like most web site operators, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the Site. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site. We also collect information that may be personally-identifying like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the Site. We only disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below.
Certain visitors to the Site choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who request services, products, or related guidance are asked to provide additional information, including, as necessary, the personal and financial information required to provide those services, products, or guidance. In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us including, but not limited to, confirming and tracking services, product orders, and order histories. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described herein. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site-related activities and receiving services, products, and related guidance.
We may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Site. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described herein.
The Site is a general audience website. The Site is not geared toward children, and users of the Site represent that they are at least 18 years of age. In order to protect children’s personally identifiable information and to meet the standards of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we do not knowingly collect any personally-identifiable information from children, including children under 13. If a parent or legal guardian is made aware that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personally-identifiable information, we ask to be notified at the email address or phone number set forth below. We will then delete any information about the child from our files.
We take measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personally-identifying information. We disclose personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know such information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at the Site, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Site, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone; provided, however that any entity acquiring our business, regardless of the how such an acquisition is structured, will have the right to continue utilizing all personally-identifying information provided to us without requiring your additional consent. . Other than to our employees, contractors, acquirers,affiliated organizations, as described above, we disclose personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights or the property or rights of third parties, the public at large or as otherwise required by law.
We will not disclose your personal data or profile data for marketing purposes of our own or of third-parties, unless you specifically and explicitly consent. If you consent to any such disclosure, you may withdraw your consent for future disclosures at any time, although any such withdrawal would not affect any data disclosed or shared before the change was processed.
California law requires web sites to explain certain online practices regarding tracking of visitors. Some web browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets a user allow its browser to notify web sites that the user does not want to have his or her online activities tracked. Our Sites currently do not respond to such browser-initiated signals.
