Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting (the “Site”).  We hope you find our Site informative and enjoyable.  Your privacy is important to us and our related members, associates, affiliated companies and subsidiaries, (hereinafter collectively referred to as “we”, “us”, “our” or “Company”). The Company’s products and services (collectively, the "Products and Services") are offered by the Company through web pages and are made available subject to this Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions.
We are committed to bringing you beneficial information that is tailored to your personal wants and needs. This is how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our website. As explained below, the information we receive depends upon what you do when visiting our site. By visiting this website, you accept the practices and procedures described in this Privacy Policy.
Our Pledge to You
We understand the importance of privacy. We treat our customers and visitors as part of our team and carefully protect all the information they have entrusted to us. This statement describes the information practices at the Company websites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.

Information Security
We will take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our Site and to protect such information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use.  We implement appropriate measures and processes, such as using encryption when transmitting certain sensitive information, to help us to keep your information secure and to maintain its quality. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, email sent to or from this Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, usernames, ID numbers or other special access features on this Site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.

Your Consent
Your use of the Company’s website signifies your consent to us collecting personal information about you in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We only collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us.

Using our Website
This website does not require or collect personal information from visitors who simply want to gain access to any part of our site without more.

However, if you then use the site or download information, such as consumer information, articles, and the like, we will collect and store the following information:

1.    The name of the domain from which you accessed the Internet (for example, "," if you are connecting from an AT&T account, or "" if you are connecting from the Harvard University's domain);
2.    The date and time you accessed our site;
3.    The address of the website, if any, from which you linked directly to our site;
4.    Personal information you as a user elect to submit, which is further explained below under Cookies.

We collect this information to measure, in the aggregate, the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, to improve our site's content, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. In addition, we may use the information gathered to conduct internal marketing analysis to improve our web site for our users.

If you choose to identify yourself by, for example, ordering a product, or sending an online e-mail to request product information, or otherwise communicating with us online, you will usually be sending us personal information. This may include your name, street address, email address, credit card information and anything else that you disclose on our website.

How we use your information
The Company uses your Personal Information for the purposes of responding to and processing your requests for our web-based products and services.

Active Information Collection
In general, you can visit any of the Company’s Internet sites without telling us who you are or giving any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when our partners or we may need information from you.

We work to provide you with the best possible service. In order to do this, we may use the personal information we collect from you.  Like many websites, this Site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking them specific questions and by permitting them to communicate directly with us via e-mail, feedback forms, chat rooms and so forth. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number and so on).

Some areas of this Site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers, order processing and so forth) or to participate in a particular activity (such as sweepstakes or other promotions and so forth). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.  For example, if you order a product or a service from us, your information may be handled by a third party center fulfilling your transaction request and marketing use. As such, it’s important that we collect certain personal information from you to: 
1.    Process and track your order
2.    Provide any services you request
3.    Contact you about the status of an order or transaction
4.    Send you promotional offers we believe will be of interest to you
5.    Provide information about products you have purchased or product recalls
6.    Improve our merchandise selection and customer service
We will use your e-mail address to respond to questions or other emails we receive from you. We may share your personal information with our member affiliates or divisions so that they may communicate on matters that may be of interest to you.
You may wish to receive future e-mails from us as well as e-mail from third parties and you may be given that option from time to time. The personal information you provide for these purposes are likely to be disclosed to the third parties so that they can provide such mailings.
What information do we collect?
1.    We collect information from you when you register on the site, place an order, enter a contest or sweepstakes, respond to a survey or communication such as e-mail, or participate in another site feature.
2.    When ordering or registering, we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information or other information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
3.    We also collect information about gift recipients so that we can fulfill the gift purchase. The information we collect about gift recipients is not used for marketing purposes.
4.    Like many websites, we use "cookies" to enhance your experience and gather information about visitors and visits to our websites. Please refer to the "Do we use 'cookies'?" section below for information about cookies and how we use them.

How do we use your information?
We may use the information we collect from you when you register, purchase products, enter a contest or promotion, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:
1.    To personalize your site experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested.
2.    To allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests.
3.    To quickly process your transactions.
4.    To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature.
5.    If you have opted-in to receive our e-mail newsletter, we may send you periodic e-mails. If you would no longer like to receive promotional e-mail from us, please refer to the "How can you opt-out, remove or modify information you have provided to us?" section below. If you have not opted-in to receive e-mail newsletters, you will not receive these e-mails. Visitors who register or participate in other site features such as marketing programs and 'members-only' content will be given a choice whether they would like to be on our e-mail list and receive e-mail communications from us.

Credit Cards
The Company may provide your credit card number, billing and shipping information to participating merchants from whom you buy goods or services and financial institutions pursuant to transactions with The Company. The merchants are solely responsible for how they use that information and any other information they independently acquire from you or about you. Otherwise, the Company does not share your credit card information with anyone else.

How do we protect visitor information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only accessed as stated above.

Passive Information Collection (Cookies)
As with many Websites, the Site uses standard technology called “cookies,” which are small data files that are transferred to your computer when you allow your browser to accept cookies.  Cookies automatically identify your Web browser to the Site whenever you visit the Site, and make using the Site easier for you by saving your passwords, purchases, and preferences.  By tracking how and when you use the Site, cookies help us determine which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the Site are based on data obtained from cookies.  Accepting cookies allows you, among other things, to personalize your experience on the Site. Cookies may also allow the Site to present to you advertising which may be of interest to you.  If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner you can disable your cookies.

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the telephone by contacting customer service.

IP Addresses and Automatic Information
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Website. Your IP address is used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information. We may collect IP addresses and/or automatic information for purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers and sponsors. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. Our computers identify your computer by its IP address. When you request Web pages from the Site, our computers log your IP address.

Links to Other Web Sites
You should be aware that while on our Site you could be directed to other sites beyond our control. For example, if you "click" on a banner advertisement, the "click" may take you off the Site onto a different Web site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use the Site’s logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other Web sites may send their own cookies to you, independently collect data or solicit personal information and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. If you visit a Website that is linked to our Site, you should consult that site’s privacy policy before providing any personal information. Please note that the Company is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those other websites. The Company cannot be held responsible or liable for any damages caused by viruses when linking or linked to third party Internet sites.

Advertising and Affiliate Sites
1.    The Company may display advertisements or commercials (collectively, "advertising") on Website pages that also contain Members' information. Advertising will be visually separated from Members' information, and reasonable attempts will be made to ensure that advertisers don't imply endorsement or use of products or services by a Member.
2.    The Company Website may include links to different Internet sites. These links do not constitute endorsements of any services, products, or companies, and information on linked sites is not necessarily endorsed or approved by the Company

3.    Please exercise discretion while browsing the Internet.  This includes links from sponsors and content partners that may use our logo(s) as part of a co-branding or other agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, solicit personal information, or contain information that you may find inappropriate or offensive.

4.    The Company does not warrant, endorse, guarantee, or assume responsibility for any product or service advertised or offered by a third party through the Company’s Website, any hyperlinked website, or featured in any banner or other advertising.

5.    The Company cannot be held responsible or liable for any damages caused by viruses when linking or linked to third party Internet sites.

Do we disclose the information we collect to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice, except as described below. The term "outside parties" does not include the Company or any of its members or affiliates.  It also does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.

However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Contests, Sweepstakes, Surveys, and publications
From time to time The Company may offer you the option to participate in contests, sweepstakes, surveys, newsletter(s), magazine(s), or any other type of publication.  If you would like to participate, we may ask you for contact information, preferences, or other information. This information may be used to conduct research, improve our offerings, or award prizes. Our contests and sweepstakes may have separate rules and we will identify how the information that you supply will be used in each case.

Supplemental Information
From time to time we may receive information about you from our operational partners and add it to the data previously collected about you. This is to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect and to help us provide a better service.

Third party links
In an attempt to provide you with increased value, we may include third party links on our site. These linked sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these linked sites (including if a specific link does not work).

Site Forum, Chat Rooms or Blogs
Your postings to our chat sessions or forum are not private. Any information posted in our public chat sessions may be seen and/or collected by others. Therefore, please be careful about any personal information you post via these sessions. If you partake in any discussion forum or chat room, you should be aware that the information you provide there will be made broadly available to others, potentially inside or outside the Company, who have access to that discussion forum or chat room. Each participant's opinion on a forum or chat room is his or her own and does not reflect the opinion of the Company.  Refer to the Company’s Social Media Policy.
