Our Commitment To Privacy
The Information We Collect
When you come and visit our site we may collect two types of information: a) personal information you choose to disclose and b) information that is automatically collected by our servers or obtained by third parties in a way that is not directly visible to you.
a) Information you may choose to provide. By choosing to participate in one of our services, you must become a subscribing member by disclosing some or all of the following information, such as: your name, address, phone number, email address, etc. During the process of registering on our site, we may additionally collect the following information which might include, mobile telephone number, fax number, and payment information including credit card number and associated billing address.
b) Passive information collected automatically by our servers or obtained from third parties. We collect some information about you simply by you connecting to our website. Our servers automatically identify your computer by its Internet protocol (“IP”) address, which is a unique string of numbers that are assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider. In addition, to enroll in our service you must allow cookies to be active on your computers settings. Cookies are a feature of a web browser (Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) that allow web servers to recognize which computer is used to access a website. Cookies simplify many interactions on our website and help process your interactions on related web pages. This information collected may include the date and time of your visits, the site pages you viewed, the time spent at each page and the websites you visited just before and after our website. You can disable the cookie function of your computer web browser by following the instructions in the “help” section of your web browser. By doing this it may likely make it impossible for our system to properly recognize you when you visit our website.
The term Information is used in this policy and refers to both types of information described above, as well as any Information that you provide to us directly by phone (including any phone number displayed by caller ID), text or SMS message, U.S. mail or through any other written or oral communication with us including fax.

We use your Information to administer our business activities, provide customer services such as technical support, distribute information about changes to our site, and send you, and enable others to send you, information about products and services that may be of interest to you and to contact you or use your Information for any other purpose.

The parties who perform services for us (credit card processors, merchant banks, our Internet service provider, etc.) also may have access to your information in performing their services.
Special Note About Information You Provide Directly To Our Advertisers.
You are able to access certain advertiser’s sites through our site. When you opt to receive information or sign up for an offer from an advertiser, you may be doing so through third party sites and with other companies over which we have no control. You should read those sites’ privacy policies to make sure you agree to them before using such sites. If you wish to opt out of those advertisers’ mailings, you must do so directly with such advertisers or as otherwise provided on or through their sites.
Security Of Your Information:
We use reasonable technical efforts to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, or accidental loss or destruction of Information. However, nearly all Internet transmissions pass through many servers not controlled by us, and therefore we cannot guarantee that any information you provide us or we collect will not be intercepted or altered in that process. Also, as noted above, your Information is shared with third parties whose privacy policies and practices are beyond our control.
How You Can Choose To Opt-Out Of Receiving Further Information About Products Or Services
If at any time you do not wish to receive further information about products or services from us and wish us to cease providing your Information to third parties, you may chose to opt-out through the Unsubscribe/Opt-Out page of our site or by written request sent by U.S. mail to our Customer Service Manager at the following address:

If you later give us a clear statement that you want to receive emails from us or our advertisers after such date, then that opt-in statement will supersede any earlier opt-out request. If we have already provided your email address or other information to an advertiser or other third party before we receive your opt-out request, we cannot prevent them from sending or continuing to send you information or emails and you will need to contact such third party directly.
