IP Address and Web Server Logs
Similar to other commercial Web sites, our Web site utilizes Web server logs to collect information about how our Web site is used. Information gathered through Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site. We, our advertisers and ad serving companies may also use small technology or pieces of code to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.
We analyze IP addresses in the aggregate for system administration purposes and to gather broad demographic information. We do not link IP addresses to your computer’s User ID, with the following exception: when you place an order using our online order and checkout process we record your computer’s IP address with your order to help us identify fraudulent credit card use. We may share this information with the financial institution that issued the credit card with which an order was placed, or with law enforcement authorities if we determine, or are notified, that the use of the credit card was fraudulent.

We do this to ensure that the affiliate site receives proper credit for any subsequent order you might place. We may also use this information in conjunction with your activities on our site to help us identify what offers and services may be of interest to you.

They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Otherwise we never sell, rent or disclose your personal information to any third parties unless we have your express permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the disclosure is required to comply with valid legal processes (subpoenas, warrants) or as required by law.

We take commercially reasonable precautions to protect your information both online and off-line. All information we collect from you are stored by us on secure computers housed within secure, professionally serviced facilities. Some of the information you submit is encrypted and is protected with leading encryption software – SSL (Secured Socket Layers) SSL, 128 bit encryption services the web security standard created and approved by Thawte. Pages utilizing this technology will have URLs that start with HTTPS instead of HTTP. While on a secure page, such as our registration form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. Moreover, additional encryption methods are added to protect highly sensitive data such as credit card numbers, so that even a physical break-in to our database would not compromise this data. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
We are committed to continually seeking to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available. While we make every effort to ensure that your personal information is secure on our system, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email.
