What Information We Collect and How We Use It
Personally Identifiable Information
Supplementation of Information
We may, from time to time, supplement the information we collect online with outside records (e.g., information from our affiliates, subsidiaries and third party partners (collectively, "Strategic Partners") or from wireless providers) to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
Sharing of Your Information
In addition, we will share aggregated demographic information with our Strategic Partners. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information. We will never disclose any credit card information to any third-party marketers or other non-governmental entity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may: (a) share the fact that we have credit card information on file for specific users of the Website(s) but we will not share your specific credit card information with such third parties without your prior informed consent; (b) share your credit card information with consumer credit agencies; and (c) disclose your credit card information to third party processors for the sole purpose of effectuating transactions that you enter into at the Website(s). We may also disclose your personally identifiable and/or Sensitive Information: (i) to a governmental entity if so ordered by a court of law, to comply with the local, state and federal laws (ii) where otherwise required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on our Website(s); or (iii) if we are sold or acquired.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may collect certain non-personally identifiable information about our visitors when you visit many of our Website pages, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows '98 or Mac OS) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink). We use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our Website pages and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze Website usage.
Web Beacons A web beacon is a programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page, but can also be used to transfer your unique user identification to a database and associate you with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows MediaWhiz to track certain websites that you visit. Web beacons are used to track MediaWhiz behavioral habits for marketing purposes to determine products or services that you may be interested in. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, MediaWhiz also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in MediaWhiz's database.
No Information Collected from Children
We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate and monitor the interactive activities of their children. MediaWhiz will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of eighteen (18). If MediaWhiz obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of eighteen (18), that information will be immediately deleted from its database. Because it does not collect such information, MediaWhiz has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties. MediaWhiz has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children's Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA").
All collected information is stored in a technically and physically secure environment. When our registration/application process prompts users to enter Sensitive Information, and when we store and transmit such Sensitive Information, that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. While we use SSL encryption to protect Sensitive Information online, we also do everything in our power to protect other user information both online and off-line. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet 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, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems. All of our users' information, not just Sensitive Information, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personal information. Furthermore, access to this information is strictly limited, and not accessible to the public. Our employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all user information. Employees not adhering to our firm policies are subject to disciplinary action. Please note that any attempt to breach the security of the network, our servers, databases or other hardware or software supporting the Website(s) or other websites under the control of MediaWhiz constitutes a crime punishable by law. We will turn over to authorities, any and all evidence relating to a potential breach of security or other abuse against the network, servers, databases or other such supporting equipment or software. In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we shall notify you in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your personal information. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.
