To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make a link to it available on our homepage.
What we collect
During the registration, subscription and submission processes, the types of personal information you provide to us may include your name, address, phone, fax, email address, social security number, driver’s license number, date of birth, username and password, billing information, transaction, and credit card information.
How we use it
We use your personal information for the following purposes:
- To make the site easier for you to use by not making you enter your personal information more than once.
- To deliver services that you request or purchase.
- To respond to your voluntary submissions.
- To help us create and publish content most relevant to you.
- To alert you of product upgrades, special offers, updated information and other new services provided by us.
- To request and provide feedback related to online surveys.
- To communicate promotional offers.
- To respond to requests for assistance or to fulfill support requests.
Who we share it with
We never sell or rent your personal information. Provider may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law (for example, a subpoena) or regulation, or in good faith to (a) comply with legal processes served on the site, or (b) protect the rights and property of Provider, or (c) where our records indicate fraudulent activity, deceptive practices, other activity that a governmental agency should be made aware of, or (d) where your communication suggests possible harm to others.
Provider may transfer information about users if Provider is acquired by or merged with another company. Provider is not responsible for notifying users of such changes.
When you register, Provider will not share your information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated above. For example, we use personal information to reply to inquiries, process content submissions, handle complaints, provide operational notices, keep records up to date to notify you via periodic e-mails of technical service issues, specials, new content or other related product/service information. Your information may be shared with agents or contractors of Provider for the purpose of performing services for Provider.
Security of your Personal Information
Provider strictly protects the security of your personal information. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under conditions explained above or in this paragraph. Inside the company, data is stored on password-controlled servers with limited access. Your personal information may also be stored on a password-controlled server owned and maintained by a third party entity that provides off-site storage, servers, hosting, and/or other services to Provider. Provider cannot control the security of your personal information stored on or transmitted through this or any other third party.
You also have a significant role in protecting your information. Where applicable, do not share user names or passwords used for websites operated by Provider with others.
Access to your Personal Information
We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current or, at a minimum, we will provide you with the means to terminate your account and/or any active subscriptions; such as membership on our mailing list(s). To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as password and username, before granting access to your data.
