2. Information the Company Collects and How the Information May be Used.
There are a number of situations in which your personal information may help us give you better products. For example:
We may ask for your personal information when you're discussing a service issue on the phone with an associate, participating in an online survey, or using our services or services offered through this Site.
When you interact with the Company, we may collect personal information relevant to the situation, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, E-mail address, and contact preferences; your credit card information and information about the Company services or products you are using; and information relating to a support or service issue.
We also collect information for market research purposes - such as your occupation and where you use your Company products-to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide more valuable service.
We collect information regarding customer activities on our websites. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our websites, products, and Internet services are of most interest to them.
We may use personal information to provide services and products that you have requested as well as for auditing, research, and analysis to improve our services and products.
We automatically log information about you and your computer. For example, when visiting our Site, we log your computer operating system type, browser type, browser language, the website you visited before browsing to our Site, pages you viewed, how long you spent on a page, access times and information about your use of and actions on our Site. We may log information using “cookies.”
This information may be shared with third parties or in special circumstances as described elsewhere in this policy.
3. Your Online Company ID and Related Information.
Our website allows you to create a username and customer ID based on your personal information. This convenient service saves you time and allows for easier use of our web services. In order to create your username and customer ID, you will need to create a personal profile by providing your name, E-mail address, last four of your social, date of birth, and bank card information. The system saves the information in your personal profile which you can use when performing various activities relating to our website and the products and services you purchase from the Company.
4. Publicly Displayed Information is Public.
If you use a bulletin board, comment section, or chat room on our website you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. The Company is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. For example, if you choose to make information, which was previously non-public, available by enabling certain user features, the Company will collect that information from your interaction and the information will become publicly available.
5. When the Company Discloses Your Information.
The Company takes your privacy very seriously. The Company does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers. We may share personal information with your consent, with use of your personal information by third parties being subject to their privacy policies.
There are also times when it may be advantageous for the Company to make certain personal information about you available to companies that the Company has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for the Company to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, extend credit, fulfill customer orders, deliver products and services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. In such situation these companies are prohibited from using your personal information for any unauthorized purposes and are also obligated to protect your information in accordance with the Company's policies, except if we inform you otherwise at the time of collection. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to purchase products, have products delivered to you, receive customer service, provide us feedback to improve our products and services, or access certain services, offers, and content on our website. We may share personal information when we do a business deal, or negotiate a business deal, involving the sale or transfer of all or a part of our business or assets. These deals can include any merger, financing, acquisition, or bankruptcy transaction or proceeding.
The Company may take the personal information we receive from individuals responding to our customer surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other customers we may have, to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). The Company then uses the aggregated information to improve the quality of its services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated non-personally identifying information may be shared with third parties.
We also reserve the right to disclose your personal information for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including credit agencies, collection agencies, merchant database agencies, law enforcement, litigation or to satisfy laws, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information. We may also disclose personal information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our contracts, policies and procedures. Finally we may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.
6. How the Company Protects Your Personal Information.
The Company takes precautions to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
Our website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required in order to protect the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it's transmitted over the Internet. You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser.
While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining your personal information.
