WHO THIS POLICY COVERS
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
This Website routinely collects information about its Visitors. This information may include your name, email address, street address, mailing address, billing information, birthday, or other personally identifying information.
This information may be obtained through various methods, including but not limited to: registration on our Website, subscribing to a newsletter or mailing list, participating in visitor surveys, requesting information from the Website, or ordering a product or service from the Website.
WHAT WE USE THE INFORMATION FOR
We may use the information we collect to allow us to personalize your experience on our Website; to improve our Website; to better service you in responding to customer service requests; to process your transactions, your order, or other products and services; to administer a contest, promotion, or other Website feature; and to send periodic emails regarding author or company news.
Visitors who send emails to the Website or who communicate with the Website by phone or mail give the Website permission to collect information about your communication and to collect, archive, retrieve, and otherwise use any information collected as the Website sees fit. Any communication which the Website deems testimonial may be publicized for commercial purposes.
We will take all reasonable steps to protect your personal data, but be aware that when you send any data to our Website, you do so at your own risk.
Credit Card and financial information is usually not known to the Website. However, if it is made known, it will only be revealed to processing authorities or law enforcement agencies. The provider of such information gives express permission to use it for purposes of legal investigation or litigation.
We do not habitually sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. We may disclose your personal information to any of our group companies or subsidiaries, and to third parties if we are legally required to do so to protect the rights, property, or safety of ourselves or others.
Please note that when you voluntarily make your information available for viewing by others over this Website, (for example, by posting a comment on a blog entry) it may be seen, collected, and used by others, and, therefore, we cannot be responsible for unauthorized or improper use of information you voluntarily share.
Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
You may be issued a username and password in order to access certain content or utilize certain features of this Website. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password, and you agree to notify us immediately of any improper or unauthorized use of your username or password. It is your responsibility to protect your username and password from others, and we will not be liable for any damage or loss arising from your failure to protect your username or password. If you share your username and password with others, we will not be liable if they obtain access to your personal information through use of that username and password.
We provide you with the ability to opt-out of our communications by selecting the unsubscribe link in all emails. We take steps to ensure we are not sending out misleading information, and we do not sell, rent, or share your email address.
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will promptly remove you from all correspondence. As noted above, you may also unsubscribe from email newsletters by using the unsubscribe link in the footer of email communications. Please note that we may have multiple newsletter publications, and unsubscribing from one using the unsubscribe link may not unsubscribe you from all.
