What Personal Information About Visitors and Customers Does StoppingPower.net Collect?
The information we learn from visitors and customers helps us personalize and continually improve your experience at StoppingPower.net and all related sites. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our web sites or give us through any other correspondence. For example, when registering and participating in the StoppingPower.net Forums, we collect user names, biographies, email addresses and other pertinent information (i.e. usage history). At the StoppingPower.net Online Store we collect customer contact information, billing and shipping information, and purchase histories. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of the sites' features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing our interaction with you, improving our message forums, stores, etc., and generally communicating with you.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you visit us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses StoppingPower.net related sites. For example, we learn what browser you are using, what your user name and login are for the StoppingPower.net Online Store or Message Forums. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit Web sites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at StoppingPower.net if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we frequently request a confirmation when you open e-mail from us if your computer's email client supports this feature.
What About Cookies?
Cookies are small alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our sites to recognize you when visiting. The "help files" accessible from the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to totally disable cookies. It should be known though, cookies allow you to take full advantage of many of StoppingPower.net's most important features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Does StoppingPower.net Share User Contact Information?
Information about our visitors is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We never share customer information.
We occasionally use other companies to perform functions on our behalf, such as having a publisher or vendor drop ship an item that may be out of stock at our offices. General examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, and sending mail and e-mail on StoppingPower.net's behalf. They have access to personal information needed to perform these responsibilities, and we cannot guarantee that they won't use it for other purposes. Though, it is always our practice to request that user information not be used for anything other than the requested service when outsourcing services.
Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of StoppingPower.net visitors who indicate interest in such offers. When we do this, we do not give the product's vendor, which is being promoted, visitors' names and addresses. If you do not wish to receive such offers and are accidentally contacted, please reply to any such offers and simply request to be removed from future marketing oriented messages, and your contact information will be promptly removed from marketing contact lists.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy interests. In such situations, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that StoppingPower.net, or possibly all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of StoppingPower.net, Inc. and Others:
We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of StoppingPower.net, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent:
Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information, except in the event that this information is being requested by law enforcement agencies.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input on the StoppingPower.net Online Store. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
What Information Can I Access?
