1. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
1.1. User Direct Information: Each time you provide information to Publisher on any Website page owned, operated or controlled by the Publisher, request information on any site, or submit any other form of inquiry, send us an email, subscribe to a newsletter, redeem an offer or otherwise transmit information via the site in any way, Publisher may obtain and collect personally identifiable information provided by you, including, but not limited to, your name, email address, mailing address, social security number, credit card information, telephone number, or any other form of data that you submit, including your user agent information, a cookie, IP address, a time-date stamp and potentially more information may be collected and recorded to a backup file for our records indefinitely. You may also provide us with information that, when combined with personally identifiable information, provides the Publisher with a better idea of who you are, including but not limited to your gender, birthday, marital status, and education level (collectively referred to as “personal information”). If you choose to access our Site, use our Services or purchase our products, we may require you to provide personal information as indicated on the forms throughout the Site.
1.2. Survey Information: Publisher collects information from you when you voluntarily complete a survey, poll, order form, or a registration page either online by using the internet, or offline by providing this information through the mail, in person or using a telephone. You may have received one of our surveys via a third party. This method of collection is collectively known as a survey (“Survey”). In such Surveys, the Publisher may ask you to provide personal identifiable information Including your name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (Including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, social security number, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information as may be requested from time to time. The Publisher may also collect such information concerning you from another source and use that information in combination with information provided from this website. Completing the Surveys is completely voluntary, and you are under no obligation to provide Survey Information to Publisher or any third-party.
1.3. Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology: Publisher currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about you with information about you in its database. Additionally, Publisher may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future.
(b) Web Beacons: A web beacon is a programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page, but can also be used to transfer your unique user identification to a database and associate you with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows Publisher to track certain websites you visit. Web beacons are used to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes to determine products or services you may be interested in. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, Publisher also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in Publisher’s database.
(c) IP Addresses: Publisher automatically tracks certain information based upon your behavior on the Site. We may use this information to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on the Site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on the Site or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address. Your Internet Protocol (“IP”) is a unique Internet “address” which is assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider (“ISP”). For local area network (“LAN”), DSL, or cable modem users, an IP address may be permanently assigned to a particular computer. IP addresses are automatically logged by web servers, collecting information about a user’s traffic patterns. While the IP address does not identify an individual by name, it may, with the cooperation of the ISP, be used to locate and identify an individual using the web. Your IP address can, however, reveal what geographic area you are connecting from, or which ISP you are using. Finally, other websites you visit have IP addresses, and we may collect the IP addresses of those websites and their pages.
(e) Data Analysis: Data analysis technology may be employed from time to time if used by a client of Publisher.
(f) New Technology: The use of technology on the internet, Including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly developing. As a result, Publisher strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of new technology.
