This policy covers how we treat personal information that the Site collects and receives, including information related to your use of products and services available on the Site. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. This policy does not apply to the practices of other websites or companies that may be displayed or accessed through or from the Site.
Registration In order to use, take advantage of, or participate in services ("Services") that may be available on the Site, you will need to complete the registration form. During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to contact you about the Services in which you have expressed interest. Services may include, but are not limited to sweepstakes, contests and surveys ("Special Promotions"), or to make online purchases ("Purchases").
You have the option to provide demographic information (such as gender) to us; we encourage you to submit this information so we can improve the experience on our site.
If you wish to subscribe to our e-mail updates, you will need to provide your e-mail address. You may also be asked for other information when you subscribe.
If you make a Purchase, we request certain personal information from you on an order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.
From time-to-time, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on the Site. If you participate, we will request certain personal information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).
Information About Other People
The Site may ask you to submit personal information about other people. For example, you may submit a person's email to share a Service or you might submit a person's name and other personal information if you purchase a gift and want to have it sent directly to the recipient. A record of that transaction will be maintained as allowed and/or required by law.
Third Party Providers
We may use third parties to assist, facilitate or conduct the Services. Such third parties could be involved in the processing of credit card transactions, customer service, promotion or sweepstakes administration, order fulfillment and/or prize delivery, or other services. By making using the Services, making a Purchase or participating in a Special Promotion, you are deemed to consent to provide your personal information to the Site's third party service providers. Third party service providers are prohibited from using your personal information for their own marketing purposes and/or from sharing, selling, or otherwise distributing such information unless you choose to opt in for such additional uses and/or disclosure by the third parties, under their respective privacy policies.
Third Party Web Sites
If you make a Purchase or enter a Special Promotion in which the Site is participating on a third party's Web site (or through some other means or medium), we will collect your information from the third party only if you opt-in to receive additional communications from us, or we are required to fulfill some function in relation to your activity (e.g., to send your order or deliver a prize).
Non-Personal Information That We Collect
As part of the registration process for some Services, you may be asked to provide information that does not personally identify you. For example, you may be asked to provide information concerning your entertainment preferences and the like. This information is generally optional but may be included in your User Account profile. The Site requests this information to understand you better and to also bring to your attention new services, programs, or offers that may be of interest to you.
Uses of Information
We use your personal information to facilitate the Services you request, to keep you informed about changes affecting the Site, or your account, to inform you of other services or offers in which you might be interested, and to improve and enhance the Site. We also use your personal information in the file we maintain about you, and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on the Site to: resolve disputes; troubleshoot problems; help promote safe exchange of information; collect fees owed; measure consumer interest in our products and services, inform you about online and offline offers, products, services, and updates; customize your experience; detect and protect us against error, fraud and other criminal activity; and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection. At times, we may look across multiple users to identify problems or resolve disputes, and in particular we may examine your personal information to identify users using multiple user IDs or aliases. We may compare and review your personal information for errors, omissions and for accuracy.
You agree that we may use personal information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze site usage and effectiveness, improve our content and product offerings, and customize the Site's content, layout, and services. These uses improve the Site and better tailor it to meet your needs, so as to provide you with a smooth, efficient, safe and customized experience while using the Site. You agree that we may aggregate (i.e. gather up data across some or all users) your personal information with the personal information of other users of the Site to analyze Site usage patterns and capture information about the user population.
Communications from the Site
Special Offers and Updates
From time to time, we make information available on special offers and updates. You can sign up to receive this information by an email subscription.
If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a way to unsubscribe. Please see the "Choice and Opt-out" section.
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.
Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you may opt-out of these communications.
Based upon the personal information you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.
We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third party sources to create a "profile" of your preferences. We tie your personal information, and/or your purchasing history, to information in the profile, in order to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers and to improve the services of the site for you. We share your profile in aggregate form only.
We provide you the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having your personal information used for certain purposes, when we ask for this information. For example, if you purchase a product/service but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing us at Haralambie@yahoo.com.
You will be notified when your personal information is collected by any third party that is not our agent/service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party.
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We do not link this automatically-collected data to personal information.
We use a third-party tracking service called Urchin/Google Analytics that uses log files to track non-personal information, such as pages viewed, site visitation, average session time, about visitors to our site in the aggregate. We use this information to continue to optimize the site services and experience for visitors and to measure the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.
If you reject cookies, you may still use the Site, but your ability to use some Services may be limited.
Links to Other Sites
The Site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by the Site. Please be aware that the Site is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.
We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personal information.
This privacy statement applies only to information collected by the Site.
Access to Personal information
If your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by emailing at email@example.com.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Consent to Processing in the United States
Special Notice Regarding Children Under 13
The Site recognizes the sensitivity of personally identifiable information concerning children under the age of 13 and therefore provides this special notice. The Site is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations regarding children, including the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). Except in limited circumstances allowed by COPPA, the Site will not knowingly collect, maintain, or disclose any personally identifiable information from a child under 13 without first obtaining consent from that child's parent or legal guardian.
If you are a parent or guardian who has discovered that your child under the age of 13 has submitted his or her personally identifiable information without your permission or consent, we will make reasonable efforts to remove the information at your request. To request the removal of your child's information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to include in your message the same e-mail address that your child submitted.
