General Information Again, we are not responsible for the privacy of any information that you post, publish or distribute on our site or via our site. Remember that our site allows you to post certain information on our site that is available for the public to see. We cannot promise that any content you have sent to us in anyway will be anonymous in nature for various reasons that may be outside of control such as governmental action, subpoenas and other actions we can be responsible for. Personal information is defined as any information entered when registering or using services obtained through our Web site, information you provide as part of registration for one of our education or seminar programs or any other information collected about you on our Web site (such as how long you spend on the Web site, what you look at on the Web site, etc.) We may also use or provide partners with aggregate information from the information provided by all users. If you linked to this page (or subscription form) from another Web site, information entered here may be disclosed to the owners of such Web site and to other third parties. Your registration as a member requires you to present us with personally identifiable information. We will not release such information to third parties or entities. We will access such information for internal usage as may be reasonably required. We may also email, write, or telephone you to respond to customer support issues or for other direct customer services reasons. Should you use our “forward to friend” service, we may store related file details in our database. We may send emails to those parties so that we can encourage them to sign up for our services. We also will store information regarding such “friend” emails so that we can determine which of our members are more successful regarding recruiting new members to our web site in case we wish to reward or provide some sort of positive feedback to such members. You can access our Website home page without disclosing your personal data. Some aspects of our site are available to registered members only and as our terms require, you must provide us with the required registration information, which has to be complete, accurate and up to date. Do not use our tools and services to unintentionally publish personally identifiable information. We collect information from people who use the Membership Section of our Site. This information may be used to send news, information about our activities and general promotional material which we believe may be useful to you or us; to monitor who is accessing the membership section of the Site or using services offered on the Site; and to profile the type of people accessing the Site. It is our policy not to send unsolicited emails or allow third parties to contact you via the email address that you provide to us.
Contents and Sweepstakes If you have entered into and/or won a contest provided or published by us, we or a contest sponsor may publish your name and city of residence. Please consult the contest rules published on our site for further information about the release of your personal information if you should win the particular contest.
Opting out of certain email You may not opt-out of service-related communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account by emailing our support office from the email address you signed up with. You are free to opt out of newsletters and any emails from us if you wish, with the exception of service related emails such as termination notices that we must reasonable send for the proper servicing of your account.
Information released through engaging in commerce on our site As part of the buying and selling process, you may obtain another user’s email address, shipping address and/or other information. This information should only be used for communications involving commerce we have facilitated. We have not granted you a license to use the information for unsolicited commercial messages. Without limiting the foregoing, without express consent from the user, you are not licensed to add any of our users to your email or physical mail list. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are buyers or sellers on our site or throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. We do not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable.

We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

Editing and Deleting Account Information You can change your Account Information (except your username), at any time. We may send you certain communications relating to our service, such as service-related announcements and administrative messages that are considered part of you’re your account. You can delete your account by emailing our support office. Please note that your identification, billing and contact information may remain in our records for some period. We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believes reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. Your Account Information is password-protected.
Security The security of your personal information is important to us. Your account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to work to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by signing off once you have finished using a shared computer. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) for registration We encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, We cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Forums Our site may include discussion forums or other interactive areas or services, including blogs, chat rooms, bulletin boards, message boards, online hosting or storage services, or other areas or services in which you or third parties create, post or store any content, messages, comments, materials or other items on the sites (“Interactive Areas”). If you use an Interactive Area, you should be aware that these areas are open to the public and any personal information you post or provide at registration may be viewable by others. We are not responsible for personal information you submit in connection with the Interactive Areas, nor are we responsible for how others might use that information, including to send you unsolicited messages. Interactive Area postings may be retained indefinitely.
Service Providers We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Site-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Site’s features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Site and Service are used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Compliance with Law Enforcement As indicated above, we will cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of our company or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, an illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
Email Referrals If you choose to use our email referral services to tell a friend about our products or services we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will use that information to send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site and review the product or service you have selected. We may use a third-party provider to administer this function, but any such third-party provider may only use the information submitted to facilitate this one-time email.
Phishing Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to us. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your Account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
