(2) Web Site Use of Information

We keep track of the number of users who visit our site and the sections of the site most often viewed so that we can understand your interests, and evaluate and improve the effectiveness of our site primarily for you and secondarily for our affiliates and advertisers.
Similar to other commercial Web sites, our Web site uses a standard technology called “cookies” (explained in the next section) and Web server logs to collect information about how our Web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.

How We Use the Information That You Provide to Us
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to site visitors and members. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. The lists used to send you product and service offers are developed and managed under our traditional business standards designed to safeguard the security and privacy of personal information of our site visitors and members. At any time, you can click the available link to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers or contact us at

What Are Cookies?
Cookies are a feature of Web browser software that allows Web servers to recognize the computer used to access a Web site. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s Web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one Web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that Web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related Web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from Web page to Web page and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
We use Web site browser software tools such as cookies and Web server logs to gather information about our Web site users’ browsing activities, in order to constantly improve our Web site and better serve site visitors and members. This information assists us to design and arrange our Web pages in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve our Web site to better meet the needs of our site visitors and members.

Cookies help us collect important business and technical statistics. The information in the cookies lets us trace the paths followed by users to our Web site as they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow us to count how many people visit our Web site and evaluate our Web site’s visitor capacity. We do not use these technologies to capture your individual e-mail address or any personally identifying information about you although they do permit us to send focused online banner advertisements or other such responses to you. Unless you have already provided us with personal information on our site or an affiliate site, cookies do not allow us to identify you by name, e-mail address, or other personal characteristics.

Notice of New Services and Changes
Occasionally, we may use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site, new services and special offers we think registered site members will find valuable. You will be given the opportunity to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers by clicking on a response box when you receive such an offer or by sending us an e-mail request at and telling us to remove your name from our site and/or newsletter.

How We Secure Information Transmissions
We work through a secure, well-establish Web site called Pay Pal for online payments for services and products. In addition, our server includes secure server software that encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. The information is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches our Web site.

Other e-mail that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information such as Social Security or account numbers to us through an unsecured e-mail.

How We Protect Your Information

Information Security. We use encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration, or destruction.

Evaluation of Information Protection Practices. Periodically, our operations and business practices are reviewed for compliance with policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality and quality of our information.

Employee Access, Training and Expectations. Our business values, ethical standards, policies and practices are committed to the protection of site visitor and member information. In general, our business practices limit employee access to confidential information, and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions.

How You Can Access and Correct Your Information
You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain in our database by e-mailing

How We Handle Information to Outside Parties
We may provide aggregate information about our site visitors, members, sales, Web site traffic patterns and related Web site information to our affiliates or reputable third parties, or use such information to solicit advertisers, but this information will not include personally identifying data, except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy.

Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.

Other Web Sites Linked to Our Web Site
We are not responsible for the practices employed by Web sites linked to or from our Web site nor the information or content contained therein. Often links to other Web sites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our Web site.

Your browsing and interaction on any other Web site, including Web sites which have a link on our Web site, is subject to that Web site’s own rules and policies.
