We respect the privacy of every individual who visits our website/s. We collect information from online visitors who visit, enter into transactions, ask to be on our newsletter/lists and/or receive periodic email announcements. Any information we collect will firstly be used to fulfil any service that you might request and secondly to improve how we serve you. We do this by making appropriate use of the information. Anyone can choose to be removed from our mailing list/s at any time.
In addition, online visitors who wish to purchase or obtain certain services, that we may provide from time to time through our Web site, must provide their name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and credit card number and expiration date. You agree that the information you supply during that registration will be accurate and complete and it is your responsibility to inform us of any changes to that information (including in particular your e-mail address) by e-mail to the address given on this site, or in any communication that we may from time to time send, that makes a request or offers you the ability to update your registration information.
All credit card transactions occur over a secure connection. We do not store credit card numbers.
We will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any third party. We may however from time to time, introduce to you the information, products, services or other materials of carefully selected third parties. All online visitor data collected by us is protected against unauthorized access.
Understanding how we gather information from our visitors and users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you chose to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site(s) or request certain features, such as newsletters or when you make a purchase.
Like most Web sites, we also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit.
Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, thus assisting you insofar that you would not have to re-enter that information each time you visit, or the cookie may control the number of times you are presented a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means.
In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do make the decision to block our cookies you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.
What we do with the information we collect:
Like other online publishers and companies, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver a more individual and personalised experience relating to content and advertising. By submitting your information via forms on our website(s) you are signifying your consent that we may use the contact information you submitted to fulfil and deliver or answer your request for the information or services.
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by us may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example and our programmers) may access such information.
We also occasionally use third party telephone contact call centres to contact our customers to offer additional services. We will use your information only as permitted by law.
In addition, from time to time as we grow, we may sell, buy, merge, partner, or joint venture with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
