Types of Data and Collection Methods
Through the Site, we receive data that you actively submit as well as data that we track as follows: Data Actively Submitted by You: When you request information, subscribe for a service, register as a user, or otherwise actively send us data, we usually collect data such as your name, email address(es), mailing address(es), telephone number(s), and certain other personal information. In each such instance, you will know what data we collect through the Site, because you actively submit it. If you opt-in to receive our content, program information or related materials, the option to unsubscribe will be included in every e-mail. If personal information you have submitted through the Site is no longer accurate, current, or complete, and you wish to update it, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon appropriate request we will usually be glad to update or amend your information, but we reserve the right to use information obtained previously to verify your identity or take other actions that we believe are appropriate.
Data Passively Tracked by Us: When you visit the Site, we also passively track information on your computer and Internet connection, such as the IP address of your computer and/or Internet service provider, the date and time you access our Site, the Internet address of websites from which you link to our Site, the computer technology you are using and your movements and preferences on our Site. We use technology that many other websites employ, including, without limitation, “cookies” or small data files stored on your computer’s hard drive (which is further described below), to collect such information.
Please note that unless you also actively submit personal information such as your name or address, passively tracked data does not typically allow us to identify you personally (even though it can theoretically be done, we do not have the means or interest to find out who you are, unless you identify yourself voluntarily through an active submission of data). To the extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to combine passively tracked data with personal data that you actively submit.
Collection Purposes, Use of Data
We collect passively tracked data primarily for the general purposes of administering, protecting and improving our Site and our systems, to better understand the preferences of our Site visitors, to identify server problems, to compile aggregated statistics about Site usage, and to help personalize your experience of our Site.
We collect actively submitted data primarily for the purpose for which you originally sent us the data.
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. We may use your personal information to provide the services and customer support you request, send you targeted marketing and service update notices, and compare information for accuracy and verify it with third parties.
We do share your information with trusted third parties who provide support in running this Website. We have entered into agreements with such parties which require such parties to keep your information confidential. Your information will never be shared with unrelated third parties. We may also share your information as required by law or in the interest of protecting or exercising our or others’ legal rights (e.g., without limitation, in connection with requests from law enforcement officials and in connection with court proceedings). We may share or transfer your information in connection with a prospective or actual sale, merger, transfer or other reorganization of all or parts of our business. Also, we reserve the right to fully use and disclose any information collected via the Site that is not in personally identifiable form.
INFORMATION COLLECTED FOR TRACKING AND CUSTOMIZATION (COOKIES)
We and some of our third-party service providers use “cookies.” A “cookie” is a small text file written by an Internet server to a website user’s browser where information is exchanged between them, and which is stored on a computer’s hard drive to allow us to recognize and track users on the Website to assist us in providing our customers with a productive online experience. Cookies enable us to store information about your use of the Website, such as the areas you visit and the length of your stay. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies and can be set to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. Should you choose to disable any cookies associated with the Website, you may not be able to take full advantage of all the Website’s features and doing so may prevent use of some of the Site.
We do our best to protect your information from any unauthorized access, misuse, or disclosure. However, transmissions over the Internet are never 100% secure or error-free. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via e-mail. We have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our servers. Furthermore, we take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and site monitoring. Internally, we will restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. These employees are limited in number and are committed to our privacy policies. We will review our security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate.
You acknowledge that the personal information you voluntarily share could be accessed or tampered with by a third party. You agree that we are not responsible for any intercepted information shared through our Site without our knowledge or permission. Additionally, you release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of such intercepted information in any unauthorized manner. You agree to notify us for any breach of security or unauthorized use of your information.
