Privacy Policy

Last Updated: November 11, 2009
Our Privacy Policy was developed as an extension of our commitment to combine quality products and services with integrity in dealing with our members. The Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our products and services.

What Information Do We Collect?
We collect your personally identifiable information when you sign up to receive products and/or services at the Website. We may also collect your personally identifiable information when you otherwise agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy at this Website, but do not complete the full registration process. The types of personally identifiable information that we collect at this Website, during registration and when you make a purchase include, without limitation, your name, street address, e-mail address, telephone and cell number, social security number and credit card information. In addition, we may request information about your use of, or interest in, the types of products and services offered by the third-party advertisers with whom we have partnered to offer you the products and services available at this Website.

Any personal information that you submit at the Website remains your property. However, by submitting that information to us, you grant to us the right to use your personal information for any legal purpose including, without limitation: a) effectuating a purchase from us that you make at the Website; b) transferring your personal information to a third party to effectuate a purchase from a third party advertiser at the Website; c) marketing purposes such as sharing your information with third party advertisers; d) providing promotional offers to you by means of e-mail advertising, telemarketing, SMS, direct mail marketing, pop-ups, pop-unders and/or online banner advertising; and e) for validation, suppression, content improvement and feedback purposes.

You agree that we may contact you at any time with updates and/or any other information that we may deem appropriate for you to receive in connection with your continued use of the Website. We also reserve the right to release current or past member information in the event that we believe that this Website is being or has been used to commit unlawful acts, if the information is subpoenaed, if we are sold or acquired or when we deem it necessary or appropriate. By agreeing to this Privacy Policy, you hereby consent to disclosure of any record or communication to any third party when we, in our sole discretion, determine the disclosure to be appropriate, including, without limitation, sharing your e-mail address and cell number with other third parties for suppression purposes in compliance with the requirements of the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, as amended from time to time.

In connection with the products and services available for purchase at the Website, we will collect your credit card information. We will use your credit card information to bill you for your purchases and we may share your credit card information with third parties for the sole purpose of effectuating any transactions that you enter into at the Website. In addition, by submitting your credit card information to us, you authorize us to periodically verify that your credit card account continues to be a valid and active one by charging and, thereafter immediately crediting, a small sum to the card. Such verification may be conducted through a third party service provider and, in that case, we will share your specific credit card information with this third party for verification purposes. Apart from the foregoing uses, we reserve the right to share with other third parties the fact that we have credit card information on file for specific individuals, but we will not share the actual credit card information with other third parties without the applicable individual's prior informed consent.

In addition, you agree that by submitting your personal information at the Website, such act constitutes a purchase, an inquiry and/or an application for purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule, 16 CFR 310 et seq. (the "ATSR"). Notwithstanding that your telephone number may be listed on the Federal Trade Commission's Do-Not-Call List, we retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the ATSR. Moreover, by registering with, making a purchase from, or requesting information from, a third party advertiser at or through the Website, such action shall constitute a purchase, an inquiry and/or an application with the respective third party advertiser for purposes of the ATSR and you may be contacted via e-mail, direct mail and/or telephone/SMS by such third party advertiser.

We may share with third party advertisers certain Website usage information of individuals that have received targeted promotional campaigns for the purpose of formatting future campaigns and upgrading visitor information used in reporting statistics. For this purpose, we may track some of the pages that you visit on our Website through the use of pixel tags (also called clear gifs). By submitting information at and/or registering at this Website, you agree to allow us to share such Website usage information with third parties. Furthermore, your submission of personally identifiable information by registering with this Website shall be considered as your providing affirmative consent to become a member of our list(s), an opt-in, and as such you expressly waive any privacy protection or other benefit(s) afforded by any national or state Do Not Call or other similar lists or registries. Such waiver is void in jurisdictions that expressly do not allow such waiver of rights.

What is a Cookie?
You must allow cookies and pop-up windows to be active on your system to participate in our programs. Cookies are a feature of web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, etc.) software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a site. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a user's web browser on one site to simplify subsequent interactions with that site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transaction on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from site to site and to complete transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.

Our site utilizes cookies to collect information about how our site is used. Passive Information gathered may include the date and time of visits, the site pages viewed, time spent at our site, the sites visited just before and just after our site. If you do not wish to transmit "cookie" information about yourself, you may turn off the cookie function in your web browser; please consult the "Help" section of your browser to correctly do so.

Our site's servers also automatically identify your computer by its Internet Protocol address which is a unique string of numbers that is assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. Your IP address may be used to address problems with our server or administer our site or to gather broad demographic information about our members.

How Do We Use the Information Collected?
Broadly speaking, persons we employ directly, or as contractors or agents at our direction, use Active Information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer services such as support, and distributing information about products and services we think may be of interest to our members from our advertiser merchants. We may use the Active Information or Passive Information you provide to us to contact you about changes to our site, new services, features or products we offer, or other information we think you shall find valuable. If at any time you do not wish to receive such information, you may "opt-out" by clicking here.

SMS Offering and Opt-out rights
By completing or submitting a registration form or partial registration form you are consenting to receive SMS, wireless or other mobile offering to your cell phone. You understand that your wireless carrier's standard charges and rates apply to these messages. For SMS text messages, you may remove your information by replying "STOP", "END", or "QUIT" to the SMS text message you have received and we will remove your personal information within 10 days of receiving such request.

We use Passive Information to gather information about our members and to enhance and design our site to make it easier, faster and friendlier to use. Additionally, cookies help us know information about how many people visit our site, when they visit and how they use our service. Passive Information may result in your viewing of particular advertising based on your user habits for your viewing on our site and a shopping experience customized to you in content, services and goods.

Your Information In Relation to Our Advertiser's Offers
You are able to access other merchant's sites through our site. When you opt to receive information or sign up for a trial offer, 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 their mailings, you must do so through those sites.

Sharing Information in Other Scenarios
We may be required by subpoena, law or government agency to disclose both Active and Passive Information you have provided to us. Should we buy or sell assets of our company, another company may need to review our company's assets, including your information, to make business decisions as to whether to acquire such assets. The parties who perform services for us (credit card processors, merchant bank, our Internet Service Provider) may also have access to your information in performing such services.

How Do We Secure Active Information and Passive Information?
We secure your personal information submitted by you by using reasonable technical efforts to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, or accidental loss or destruction of Active Information and Passive Information. Efforts we may take to ensure the security include but are not limited to: maintaining our own servers under our private control, data encryption and/or monitoring of our network and data for intrusions. Communications you may have with us via email or snailmail may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures are in place prior to your sending information. Therefore, if you choose to communicate with us, We collect your personally identifiable information when you sign up to receive products and/or services at the Website.
