What we do with Personally Identifiable information
We collect information through technology to make our website more interesting and useful to you. For instance, when you come to one of our websites, we collect your IP address. An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your university. Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable. At times, we also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which our guests visit various parts of our websites. We may combine this information with personally.
We will only pass on your information to third parties in the following situations1. If this was clearly stated at the time of collection or registration and, where required, if you have given permission for this.
2. If we employ another organization to perform tasks on our behalf - such as hosting the Site. In this case, the organizations may only use your information to fulfill this specific task.
4. If we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary for legal proceedings. We may also disclose member information when we believe at good faith that applicable law or regulation requires it.
Our top priority in processing orders through our website is your security. We secure
credit card processing services to ensure that your personal information remains
yours and yours alone. We will handle your private information in a secure and professional
manner - we hold ourselves accountable to our members in good standing with the
Better Business Bureau Online, a supervising organization overseeing the practices
of its affiliates in order to protect consumers.
