Website Use Information
Like other commercial websites, this site utilises a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server logs to collect information about how this site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at this site, and the websites visited just before and just after this site. I, my advertisers, and ad serving companies may also use small technology or pieces of code to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.
How Do I Use the Information You Provide?
Broadly speaking, I use personal information for purposes of administering and expanding my business activities, providing customer service, and making available products and services to my customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, I may also use the information I collect to notify you about important changes to this website, new services, and special offers I think you will find valuable. You may notify me of your desire not to receive these offers by clicking the unsubscribe link contained in each such email.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
How Do I Use Information I Collect from Cookies?
As you use this website, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other users. Cookies, in conjunction with my web server’s log files, allow me to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting this site and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps me gather feedback to constantly improve this site and better serve my customers. Cookies do not allow me to gather any personal information about you and I do not generally store any personal information that you provided in your cookies. By consenting and continuing to visit this site, you consent to the placement of cookies on your device.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
The information I collect is used to improve the content of this site and the quality of my service and is not shared with or sold to other organisations for commercial purposes. However, your information could be shared under the following circumstances:
I use third parties to facilitate business, including, but not limited to, sending email and processing payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, these third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with those business activities.
I may also transfer such information during corporate divestitures, mergers, or any dissolution.
If it becomes necessary to share information to investigate, prevent, or act regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of my Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.
Notice of New Services and Changes
Occasionally, I may also use the information I collect to notify you about important changes to this website, new services, and special offers I think you will find valuable. As my customer, you will be given the opportunity to notify me of your desire not to receive these offers by clicking the unsubscribe link contained in each such email.
How Do I Secure Information Transmissions?
Email is not recognised as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, I request that you do not send private information to me by email.
I may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if I believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law or comply with legal process served on me or affiliated parties; (b) protect and defend my rights and property, my site, the users of my site, and/or my affiliated parties; (c) act under circumstances to protect the safety of users of this site, myself, or third parties.
