We or our hosting provider may collect traffic information from visitors for
statistical analysis and site improvement. When you accesses a site, we or
our hosting provider may collect information about your visit in a log file
on a server. Log file information may include, but is not limited to, internet
protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit
pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. We or our hosting
provider use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track
users’ movements in the aggregate, and gather demographic information
for aggregate use. IP addresses and other log file information are not linked
to personally identifiable information. We do not try to track users or to
identify users individually, but we or our hosting provider do review this
information to understand overall trends and to determine what kinds of content
are popular and useful to users.
(a) Aggregated information
We or our hosting provider may share aggregated demographic information with
our users, our affiliated organizations, and other organizations with which
we do, or contemplate doing, business. Such information is aggregated and is
not linked to any information that can identify individual users.
(b) Outsourcing providers
We may use outside shipping or other outsourcing providers to process and ship
orders or perform other functions. We use commercially reasonable diligence
to restrict the purposes for which these outsourcing providers may use your
personally identifiable information. The requirements or requests that we
impose on such outsourcing providers vary with the sensitivity of the information
and can, but do not necessarily, include requirements that these outsourcing
providers not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information
for any secondary purposes, except for backup and recovery operations. Although
we use good faith efforts to impose, and/or ensure compliance by our outsourcing
providers, we cannot, and will not, be responsible to users for misuse of
personally identifiable information by such outsourcing providers. This section
is meant as a general description of our practices. It does not impose any
duty upon us and it does not constitute a representation or warranty by us
upon which you may rely.
(c) Specific services
We may have agreements with other parties to provide specific services. When
you use such services, we may share personally identifiable information with
such parties. In such cases, we will use its good faith efforts to restrict
the information provided to the information necessary for the provision of
(d) General use

or otherwise) with various vendors, suppliers, and advertisers. While we
use good faith efforts to verify that such vendors, suppliers, and advertisers
promote products and services of interest to site users, we cannot, and do
not, endorse such vendors, suppliers, advertisers, products or services unless
we expressly state otherwise. We share only such information as you yourself
provide to us or someone else provides about you (such as through a registration
process) and do not share personally identifiable information derived indirectly
through IP address tracing or similar means. If you wish us to refrain from
providing your personally identifiable information in this manner, please
see the opt-out information and contact information provided below.
Links and Information Gathered by Others
One or more sites may contain links to other web sites. We do not operate those
web sites, we cannot control the information that the operators of such web
sites gather or what the operators of such web sites do with the information,
and we are therefore not responsible for the activities of the operators
of such web sites.
If you wish to subscribe to a newsletter we offer or to a mailing list
that we maintain, we will collect from you contact information necessary to
send the newsletter or other information to you. This is usually limited to
your e-mail address, but may include other information.
Surveys and Contests
From time to time, we may request information from you using surveys or contests.
Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you
therefore have a choice as to whether to disclose this information. Information
requested may include contact information (such as name and address) and
demographic information (such as zip code and type of user). We will use
such contact information to notify winners and award prizes, and to monitor
or improve the use of one or more sites and provide aggregated information
for our own uses or to our customers or other organizations, and we may also
use it to notify you of news about us or our affiliates or promotions of
our products or services or the products or services of people with whom
we do business.
We may offer a referral service that allows you to inform your friends and
other acquaintances about content on the site. If you elect to use such a
referral service, we will collect the friend or acquaintance’s e-mail
address and use it to send the friend or acquaintance a one-time e-mail inviting
the friend or acquaintance to visit one or more sites or providing the information
you requested. We store this contact information for the sole purpose of
sending the one-time e-mail.
Where we collect nonpublic personal information from you, we or one or more
of our services providers use industry-standard encryption and security standards
to protect such information. You can tell whether encryption is being used
by noting the “locked” or other status indicator on the browser
you are using. If the browser you are using does not indicate that the session
is secure (e.g. by displaying a key or other icon), you should assume that
the connection is not secure and that third parties will receive the information
shared by you and us during that part of the session.
We also use commercially reasonable efforts to protect user information offline.
All sensitive user information is maintained in our offices or at the facilities
of our information technology provider(s). We cause access to servers and connections
to be limited by key or other access. Only employees or agents who need the
information to perform specific functions are granted access to personally
identifiable information. We use reasonable efforts to assure that its employees
and agents are informed of our security and privacy practices.
Supplementation of Information
We sometimes supplement the information we receive from you with other information
we receive from third party sources, such as credit card issuers or clearinghouses.
We may send to you a welcoming e-mail that may also verify password and
user name information. We occasionally send newsletters or information about
products, services, and special deals to users like you. You may opt to not
receive such informational communications by using the contact information
Site and Service Updates
We may also send to you updates and service announcements about one or more
of the sites. You may not un-subscribe or opt not to receive such announcements
because such announcements contain important information about the services
offered through the relevant site(s).
Misappropriation of Personal Information
For the purposes of any applicable law regarding notification of persons
whose personal information was, or is reasonably believed to have been, acquired
by an unauthorized person, our information security policy provides that any
required notification may, where permitted by law, be made by the use of e-mail,
telephone, fax, mail (including a notice printed in an available area of a
bill or statement) or posting a notice on a site. The specific means used is
up to us and we will use our judgment based on the circumstances. Where any
notice is to be sent to a specific address or number (such as e-mail address,
physical address, telephone number, etc.), we will use the latest available
address in our records. EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY LAW, YOU AGREE TO
THIS MEANS OF NOTIFICATION.
Correcting or Updating Personal Information
If your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire service, you
may contact us at the email address of email@example.com and we will
accommodate all reasonable requests for such changes.
Users who no longer wish to receive newsletters or promotional materials or
have their information provided to third parties may opt to not receive such
communications or have information shared by contacting us using the information
below. We will comply with such requests as soon as is commercially practicable.
Such compliance may involve batch processing and other processes that take
30 days or longer. If you opt not to receive such communications or allow
us to share your information and then give your personal information to us
again using one of the sites under circumstances that permit us to use your
information, we will regard your opt-out as rescinded.
In most cases, it is impractical for use to stop any other party to whom
we have supplied your information from continuing to use the information and
opting out will usually not stop other parties to whom we have provided your
information from continuing to use it.
To change your preference with regard to the way your information is treated,
please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will use commercially reasonable efforts to timely make any changes you
request. Many such changes are accomplished using batch processing (i.e.
collecting a number of similar change requests and making all such changes
at once), so the changes may not be immediately effective. If you require
an immediate change to your personally identifiable information and are unable
to make such a change using the available site resources, please contact
us using the information below.

policy under which the information was collected.

you by e-mail if, and to the extent that, you have provided your e-mail address.
If you reply to such an e-mail within a reasonable time and request that we
not use your personally identifiable information in the proposed new manner,
we will honor your request, but we reserve the right to suspend your access
to all or part of the services offered through one or more sites if you do
so. If you do not reply to such an e-mail, or we receive a reply of “undeliverable” or
similar message from your last known e-mail address, in either case after a
reasonable time, we will use the information in the proposed new manner.
BY USING THIS WEBSITE, YOU AGREE TO THIS CHANGE PROCEDURE.
we may collect personally identifiable information and use such information
in ways other than those described above if we are required to do so by law
or if we deem it advisable in the course of assisting law enforcement activities
or protecting our site(s) or other property.
