Home Notice of Online Policy
This Web site is intended to provide a unique, educational and entertaining experience for users, without requiring them to submit any more information than is necessary to participate in particular activities which may be offered, or to use the Site effectively. We do not require users to register or submit PII in order to visit the Web site. Most activities on the Site can be performed without providing PII. When we ask for PII to participate in an activity we will not require anyone to disclose more PII than we believe is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. At times, you may be asked to provide non-PII such as first name, age, gender, zip code, city, and/or state of residence. We collect information volunteered by the consumer, such as ‘contact us’ forms and newsletter sign-ups. The information entered and submitted using our online forms does not use encryption methods and the information we collect is not shared with any other organizations. If you supply us with your postal or e-mail address on-line you will only receive the information for which you provided us your address.
Registration or input of PII may be required to participate in activities such as contests, promotional activities and offers, some surveys, or for e-commerce activities. If PII is requested for participation in an activity, you cannot participate without disclosing the requested PII. From time to time, we may also ask you to provide us with non-PII which does not allow us to identify you by email address, full name, full address or other PII. We may use this non-PII information for internal purposes, or for creating reports for ourselves and third party advertiser and partners, if any.
We may use PII in promotional activities, for notification of special offers, and newsletters.
Non-PII is data such as first name, zip code, age, gender, product and promotional preferences. Your non-PII may be aggregated and used for our internal purposes or may be shared with third parties for any purpose, without your permission. No third party will know who you are as a result of the use of your non-PII.
We take steps to help ensure that all information provided by you, whether PII or non-PII, is treated securely. We have implemented technical, administrative and physical security measures to protect visitor information from unauthorized access and improper use. From time to time, we review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods. Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window after you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your PII. No data transmission over the Internet, however, can be guaranteed to be totally secure. To protect our security, to protect us against liability, or as required by law, we may collect a user’s name and email address. PII collected pursuant to this provision will not be used for any other purpose.
