Your privacy is very important. We recognize that when you choose to provide us with information about yourself, you trust us to act in a responsible manner. We believe this information should only be used to help us provide you with better service. That's why we have put a policy in place to protect your personal information.

Wherever we collect personal information we make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.

Information Collection and Use

The Eggleston Group is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. The Eggleston Group collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

Registration

In general, you can visit our public Websites without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our Web servers collect the IP Addresses, not the e-mail addresses, of visitors. This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. We use this information to measure the use of our site and to improve the content of our site.

In order to use some services in the Eggleston Group of Domains, a user must first complete a registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and E-mail address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest. It is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as income level and gender), and unique identifiers, but encouraged so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site.

Orders

We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must provide contact information required to ship products. This information is used to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is also used to get in touch with the user.

Newsletters and Mailing Lists

If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletters or mailing lists, we ask for contact information such as name and E-mail address only for delivery purposes.

Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time our site may request information from users via surveys or contests and special promotions.

Participation in these surveys, contests and promotions is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, income range, gender and age level).

Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. None of this information will be shared with any third party without the consent of the user.

Some contests and promotions are subject to their own rules and policies which may supercede this Privacy Policy. Please see the Official Rules for the specific contest or promotion for details.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, some pages on our sites are personalized to the interests or business of the user. These cookies allow that personalization to operate.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are never linked to any personally identifiable information.

Newsgroups / Forums / Message Boards

Keep in mind that information posted to a forum is public. Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, e-mail address) on bulletin boards, forums or in chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties.

Sharing

We will only share broad aggregated demographic information with our partners. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

We may use an outside shipping company to ship orders. This company will not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

We may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we must share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.

These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Some contests and promotions are subject to their own rules and policies which may supercede this Privacy Policy. Please see the Official Rules for the specific contest or promotion for details.

Links

This web site may contain links to other sites.

While we will seek to require these sites to follow appropriate privacy policies, we do not bear any responsibility for privacy policies of these sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of every web site before you submit any personally identifiable information.

This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Security

This website takes every reasonable precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

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

While we may 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 (for example, our billing or customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Correction/Updating Personal Information

If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the member information page or by E-mailing our Customer Support.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an E-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Children's Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13. No part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
