INFORMATION COLLECTION

Privacy Corps is the sole owner of the information collected on the Privacy Corps web site. Privacy Corps collects information from our users at several different points on our web site.

Registration Form
In order to receive information by email, a user must first complete a registration form. During registration, a user gives contact information (such as age and email address). We use this information to tailor content on the web site so we can provide a more personalized experience.

Order Form

We also request information from the user on our order form. A user must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number with expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact the user.


INFORMATION USE

Cookies
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We use session ID cookies for site management purposes only. Other sites use cookies, known as "Persistent Cookies," that remain on the user's hard drive for months, years or forever. The Privacy Corps web site uses only "Session cookies." Once a user closes the browser, the cookie simply terminates.

Log Files
Like most standard web sites, we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. None of this information is linked to personally identifiable information. We use a tracking utility called Webalizer that collates data from log files to analyze user movement.

Clear Gifs
We use clear gifs for site design purposes. These are not to be confused with the software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons or Web Bugs) that manage content on a web site by tracking users. Clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller than ordinary graphics, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Our clear gifs are not tied to users' personally identifiable information and do not track users.

Communicate Special Offers and Updates
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify the desire to receive email from us. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see the Choice/Opt Out section.

Email Newsletter
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide a way for the user to opt out of these communications. Please see the Choice/Opt Out section.

Provide Service Announcements
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.

Customer Service
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and with regard to issues relating to their account, we may reply via email or phone.

SHARING

Legal Disclaimer
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law where we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our web site. Where possible, we will notify affected users before disclosing information in response to a subpoena.

Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies assure Privacy Corps that they do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

Business Transitions
In the event Privacy Corps goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Privacy Corps will notify users, via the procedure indicated below, prior to any change in this Privacy Statement as a result of a change in ownership or control of users' personal information.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those proposed changes to this privacy statement on a separate page at http://www.privacycorps.com/pages/changes.htm so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

In some cases where we post a notice of proposed changes to this Privacy Statement, we will also email those users who have requested notice of any changes in our privacy practices.

Links
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, Privacy Corps, are not responsible for the privacy practices of any other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.

Security
This web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.

When our order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just 'surfing'.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment, in a locked facility.

Choice/Opt out
Our users are given the opportunity, at the point where we ask for information, to 'opt out' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for information. For example, our order form has an 'opt out' mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don't want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our marketing lists.

Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional communications may opt out of receiving these communications by sending email to privacy@privacycorps.com. We also offer an opt out mechanism at http://www.privacycorps.com/newsletter/?mode=unsubscribe or the user may opt out by contacting us at the address below.

Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users' personally identifiable information. This can usually be done by logging in at http://www.privacycorps.com/products/account.php or by emailing our Customer Support at privacy@privacycorps.com. Or you may contact us by postal mail at the contact information listed below.
