General Inc. is sensitive to the private nature of information you provide to us over the Internet and is committed to respecting the privacy of its customers and individuals who access our services. This Privacy Policy was developed as an extension of our commitment to combine the highest-quality services with the high level of integrity in dealing with our valued customers and the companies, business and organization they represent (collectively, "you").

This Privacy Policy generally describes how we treat information received about you when you visit our web sites. It is important for all users who access our sites and services to read through and understand our entire Privacy Policy. Please contact us if you have any questions about it.

Information We Collect

Personally Identifiable Information. When you register as a member, request products or services, and at other times, we may be collecting personally identifiable information from you that tell us specifically who you are. The personally identifiable information we collect ranges from limited personal data such as name, age, address, e-mail address, interests and hobbies to facts about you or your company such as the name of your company, type of company, size of your company, and what your company sells. In some cases we ask this information to maintain user profile and to provide personalized or enhanced services, to track and verify compliance with Inc. policies as well as applicable laws, for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes. You do not have to answer these questions, and you can decline this exchange of information on any site on the Internet--not just ours--at any time. However, if you should choose to withhold the requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some of the services dependent upon the collection of the information.

Certain features of Inc. will require the collection of pertinent data to help us process your purchase transaction requests. This data will not be shared with anyone unless you direct us to.

Web Site Usage Information. Our web servers may automatically collect web site usage information from you when you visit our web site. Examples of such information include the URL of the web page you were just on, the country you are currently accessing us from, or the browser version you are using to access our site. Web site usage information informs us about how our visitors and members use and navigate our web sites, including the number and frequency of visitors to each web page, and the length of their stays. All of this information is collected by Inc. and is used to help improve our offerings to you. We may aggregate such data to provide us with information that is useful to our advertisers and partners in more effectively advertising on and supporting our sites. None of the information that we collect will be released in any personally identifiable way, only in aggregate or anonymous form.

Children. Inc. will not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen. By using our web site, you represent that you are at least 13 years old. If you are under 13, please do not submit personal information to us.

How We Use Information Collected

We may combine the personally identifiable information we collect from you on our web sites with other information about you that is available to us, including web site usage information and information from other sources. We may use this information to enable us to process, validate and verify requests for products and services and for the purposes for which you specifically provided the information. We will only send you email if you specifically choose to receive it. You may cancel the email notification option at any time by alerting us to the fact that you wish to be removed.

We will not share the information we collect, as described above, with any affiliates or other third parties. We will not share the information we collect, as described above, to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf. We will only share the information collected with authorized members or legal
We use third-party advertising services on our web sites but we will not share your personal data with those services. We may match patterns of usage that our consumers exhibit on any web site where we serve advertising to create "imputed profiles" about our anonymous customers. The creation of an imputed profile allows Inc. to statistically model the demographic characteristics of an otherwise anonymous customer, without ever knowing that anonymous customer's name or other personally identifiable information about them. These imputed profiles are used to target advertising, primarily banners, to those anonymous customers. Inc. does not use personal data characteristics such as your name, address or phone number to create these imputed profiles but rather use primary demographic characteristics such as your age or gender. Through the use of imputed profiles, Inc. can surface advertising to our customers that is more likely to be for products they would want.

We may also use personally identifiable information to enforce our Terms of Use or share such information with governmental authorities when legally required to do so or at the request of a governmental authority investigating a crime.

We reserve the right to contact you at any time regarding membership, service and related problems or questions as well as changes to our Terms of Use , to our Privacy Policy, or to other policies that affect you and your use of our web site. We also reserve the right to contact you if compelled to do so as part of a legal proceeding or if we believe necessary in connection with an investigation of any activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability. Inc. is retaining these rights because in limited cases we feel that we may need the right to contact you as a matter of law or regarding matters which will be important to you. These rights do not allow us to contact you to market a new or existing service if you have asked us not to do so.

Your Ability to Choose Inc. offers you the ability to control the email communications we make to you. It is our intention to give you as much control over our relationship as possible. It is your choice to share personally identifiable information with Inc. and we encourage you to consider only sharing information with any site on the Internet if you receive true value in exchange for that information transfer and if you respect the privacy practices of the firm.

Opt Out. You can let us know that you do not wish to have us share your personally identifiable information with third parties (other than to the extent necessary to fulfill your request for products or services, to government authorities, as described above, or as permitted by law) or to combine the personally identifiable information we have about you with information from other sources by opting out at any time by contacting us . You can also opt out of receiving any future promotional emails from Inc., our partners, or selected third parties by following the procedure set forth in those emails.

Links to Affiliated or Third-Party Web Sites. We may make content from affiliated web sites or other third-party web sites available to you from links located on our own web site. These web sites are not subject to this Privacy Policy. We recommend that you review the privacy policy at each such web site to determine how that web site protects your privacy.
