Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address and an email address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit Website's Web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself.
If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information on the Web, we may transfer that Information within Website or to third-party service providers, across borders, and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.
We use sensitive Information basically for our own internal purposes, such as giving, maintaining, appraising, and improving the “Name of the Website/Company’s” Services and the Website, fulfilling requests for information, producing and shipping the products that you order, and providing customer support. For example, if you sign up to receive a Website newsletter, we will use the email address you provide to send you the newsletters.
We can also collect non-personal information from you, such as your browser type, the URL of the previous website you visited, your ISP, operating system, and your Internet protocol (IP) Address ("Non-Personal Information"). Non-Personal Information cannot be easily used to personally identify you.
We may use Non-Personal Information to track the use of the Website and the website's Services and for other internal purposes, such as providing, maintaining, evaluating, and improving the Services and the Website.
Third Party Sites
Cookies and Web Beacons
Certain of our sites use an outside ad company to display ads. These ads may contain cookies that ad companies collect, and we do not have the right of use to this information. Most browsers automatically allow cookies to be accepted whenever you visit a website. You can disable cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent. However some areas of our sites will not function properly if you do so.
Other technologies used include IP address logging and clear GIFs. Clear GIFs (also known as web bugs, beacons or tags) are small graphic images placed on a web page, web-based document, or in an e-mail message. Clear GIFs are not seen by the user because they are usually very small (only 1-by-1 pixel) and the same color as the background of the web page, document or e-mail message. We do not use clear GIFs to collect personal information about you although we can use clear GIFs to get usage information for our web pages, features or other elements on a web page. We may correlate this information to a user to personalize user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on our web pages.
“Name of the Website/Company” also retains log files that contain IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. An IP address is a numeric address that is assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. In general, we only use log files to monitor traffic on our Web sites, to report aggregate information to our advertisers and to troubleshoot technical problems. In the event of user abuse of our websites, however, we may block certain IP addresses or console IDs provided by our approved hardware manufacturers. Console IDs and IP addresses may be linked to personal information.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When sensitive information is entered such as your credit card number and/or social security number on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using SSL (secure socket layer technology.)
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, even though we will try all acceptable methods of protecting your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If parental consent is obtained, we are prohibited from conditioning a child's participation in an activity - like contests - on the child's disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity.
We provide you the opportunity to opt-out of having your Personal Information used for certain purposes. For example, if you purchase a product/service but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletters and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing us at contact us section. We also offer you an opportunity to opt-out of certain communications through the account management screen. If you need assistance you may contact us via mail.
