Personally Identifiable Information
We collect Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) on the Site when you attempt to request information on the CoverClicks™ Products or otherwise choose to provide PII to us. PII is any information that can be used to identify or locate a particular person or entity. This may include, but is not limited to: your full name or business entity name, website Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”), your personal and/or business entity related e-mail address, mailing address, daytime and/or cellular telephone numbers, and/or any other information requested on the applicable form.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads and collect information when users visit our site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements on our site, other websites and other forms of media about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, check out http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp .
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may collect certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”) about you when you visit many of the Site’s pages, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows ‘98 or Mac OS) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink). We use the Non-PII that we collect to improve the design and content of the Site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze Site usage.
Use of Information
We use your PII: (a) to send you information regarding CoverClicks™ Products; (b) to track your compliance with the CoverClicks™ Website Terms and Conditions (“Terms and Conditions”); and (c) 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 request for information regarding the CoverClicks™ Products.
As a general rule, and other than in connection with the limited exceptions set forth below, CoverClicks™ will not sell, share or rent your PII to or with others. Notwithstanding the foregoing, CoverClicks™ may, from time to time, provide such information to certain third-party administrative vendors for efficiency purposes in providing administrative or program management services in connection with your request for information on the CoverClicks™ Products. Further, CoverClicks™ may provide your information to affiliates and partners that administer the applicable CoverClicks™ Product that you requested information on. Any third-party vendor or affiliate so used has agreed to protect the confidentiality of information provided by CoverClicks™.
Third Party Links
We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate and monitor the interactive activities of their children. CoverClicks™ will never knowingly collect any personal information about individuals under eighteen (18) years of age. If CoverClicks™ obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about an individual under eighteen (18) years of age, that information will be immediately deleted from its database.
We endeavor to safeguard and protect our users’ information. When users submit PII at the Site, their PII is protected both online and offline. When our registration process asks users to submit sensitive PII (such as credit card numbers), and when we transmit such sensitive PII, that PII is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive PII online, we protect all other user information online and offline. The servers that we store PII in are kept in a secure physical environment. We have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of PII under our control.
Please be advised that, although we take every reasonable precaution available to protect your data, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot warrant that your PII will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data at or through our Site is at your own risk. However, access to your PII is strictly limited, and not accessible to the public. All of our users’ PII, not just the sensitive PII mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to PII. Our employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all user PII. Employees not adhering to our written firm policies are subject to disciplinary action. In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your PII. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.
