CLASSIFICATION OF INFORMATION
Personal Information includes, but is not limited to individual information about the User, Registration Data, User Data, Content, the User’s firm or company information and the User’s practices when registering to use the Website, certain services, email newsletters and alerts, or purchase items through the Website and can include such personally identifiable information as name, email address, company name, address, phone number, email address, and credit card information or additional comments on service needs and interests.
User Information is similar to other commercial websites that use a standard technology called Cookies and Web server logs (“Log Files”) to collect information about how the Website is used. Information gathered through Cookies, and Log Files may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at the Website, and the websites visited just before and just after the Website. The Company’s advertisers and ad serving companies may also use small pieces of code to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them. Personal Information is not stored in Cookies, Log Files or the code discussed above.
A “Cookie” is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When a user visits a website, that website’s computer asks the user’s computer for permission to store files in a part of the user’s hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own Cookie to a user’s browser if the browser’s preferences allow it, but only to access the Cookies it has already sent to the user, not the Cookies sent to the user by other websites. The Company has no control over the other websites’ Cookies.
The Company generally uses Personal Information for purposes of administering and expanding its business activities, providing products and/or services to Users, fulfilling orders, providing Personal Information to third‐party businesses required to fulfill product orders and/or provide services (“Affiliates”), providing customer service, making available other products and services to Users, notifying the User about important changes to the Website, new services, newsletters, updates, Company information, alerts and special offers (“Company Use”). The Company may need to send critical service updates from the Website, which User may not opt‐out of receiving.
The Company may buy or sell assets, business offerings or the control of the Website. Personal and User Information may be transferred at any time in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or any dissolution. The User will be notified of any such change in ownership or control of Personal and/or User Information.
The Company follows generally accepted industry standards to protect Personal Information, both during transmission and after receipt. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, and Company does not guarantee absolute security. Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. A User should not send private information via email.
The Company may disclose Personal Information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the law or comply with legal process; (b) protect and defend the Company’s rights and property, Website, the Users or (c) act under circumstances to protect the safety of Users or third parties.
Each User may opt‐out of certain uses by Company by checking the desired opt‐out options available at the time of registration or by going to the Website to review which uses include an option to opt‐out. Except for any optional uses the User has expressly requested to be omitted from, Company has exclusive ownership of all present and future existing rights to the Personal and User Information submitted to the Company (“Submissions”). The Company is entitled to use the Submissions for any commercial or other purposes whatsoever, without compensation to User or any other person sending the Submission. User acknowledges that User is responsible for whatever material User submits, and User shall have full responsibility for the message submitted, including its legality, reliability, appropriateness, originality, and copyright.
