We need to create your account and activate your membership
When you visit our website, you may provide us with two types of information: (a) personal information you knowingly and voluntarily choose to disclose, and (b) information that we automatically collect as you browse our website. We collect and store any information you voluntarily enter on our website, or provide to us in offline contacts we have with you. The following information is collected from visitors to our website, as applicable:
Our website’s membership application form requires you to give us your contact information, demographic information, and financial information. We use your contact information to send you information about the site. Your contact information is also used to contact you when necessary. Financial information that is collected is used to bill you for membership, products and services. Demographic information is used to improve relevancy of the site’s content and services.
Some areas of this website may allow you to order products or services, or to register for events, whether or not for a fee. In connection with these transactions, we collect data necessary to complete the transaction and that is furnished by you, which may include contact information, date of birth, e-mail address, telephone number, billing address, and your credit card details.
On several screens of this website, you have an opportunity to communicate with us by e-mail. You may also choose to provide your e-mail address to receive communications from us.
During your use of the site you may also voluntarily provide information in the form of comments, forum postings, listing submissions (possibly including media files), or the submission/editing of articles. This information is not moderated, and may become a permanent part of the site’s content. Judgement should be exercised in the information that you choose to share.
When you browse our website, you and your web browser may also transmit information that we automatically collect. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer), the webpages you visit and the time of your visit, and other click-stream data. This information may be combined with other personal information you voluntarily have provided. The only other type of information automatically provided to us is the type of computer, operating system and browser you are using. This information is provided by your browser, which we use to improve the performance of this website and make it more compatible with the technology used by the visitors to this website. We may also place small data files, called “cookies”, in the browser file of your computer’s hard drive. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with this website. We use the cookies to record website statistics. Most browsers automatically accept the cookies, but you usually can change your browser setting to prevent the acceptance of cookies. Certain webpages may not function properly if you choose not to accept cookies.
We use your personal information to communicate with you if and when necessary in connection with your use of this website, to respond to your questions, or to send you material and information you request. We may also use your information to: personalize your website experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product information in which you are most interested; consider your suggestions; possibly respond directly to you for clarification; process your request for materials or information; try to answer any questions you may have; and provide you with e-mail messages and other information regarding upcoming events, new services and general information about our products and services. You may elect not to receive these communications, either when you initially register at this website, or at any time thereafter. We may also use collected information in order to help diagnose problems with this website. We may use all information we collect to analyze statistical use patterns and demographic data (basically, where our visitors come from and what demographic characteristics they have) and to improve this website to better serve our customers. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, and to administer this website. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart and to gather broad demographic information. We may also prepare and keep statistical records and other data about you and other users of this website, but we do that in a way that does not identify you or any other user personally. We may hire third parties to help us collect and analyze such data, and we may share such statistical data with such affiliated third parties. Again, such statistical data will not specifically identify you or any other user. We use this information to help us make this website more useful to you and other visitors — to learn about the number of visitors to this website, what part of this website visitors are interested in, how long visitors use this website, and the types of technology our visitors use.
Because we are committed to your privacy, we have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to attempt to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the personal information we collect online. When you place an order or access your personal information on this website, we offer the use of a secure server. However, please remember that no transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us or from us, and you do so at your own risk.
Our website provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us. You have the option of reviewing or removing your information from our database, and to no longer receive communication from us. If you are a member, you can express your communication preferences on your personal account page on our website and you may unsubscribe from e-mails by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of a received email. If you wish to have your account information deleted from our database, you may do so on your account page, or by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This does not include any data that we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security reasons including information about individual sales transactions.
