C. INFORMATION PROVIDER COLLECTS AND HOW PROVIDER USES IT
Provider collects certain information from and about its Members three ways: directly from Provider Web Server logs, the Member, and with Cookies.
a. Web Server Logs.
When Members visit the Provider Website and/or Provider Internet Service, Provider may track information to administer the Provider Website and/or Provider Internet Services and analyze the usage. Some examples of information that may be tracked include:
• Member Internet protocol address.
• The kind of browser or computer Member uses.
• Number of links Member click within the site.
• State or country from which Member accessed the site.
• Date and time of Member visit.
• Name of Member Internet service provider.
• Web page Member linked to our site from.
• Pages Member viewed on the site.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save Member time. For example, if Member personalizes a web page, or navigates within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall Member specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving Member preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
Provider reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our Provider Website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into Provider Website a site that relies on third-party cookies).
Members have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but Member can usually modify Member’s browser setting to decline cookies. If Member rejects cookies by changing Member’s browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Provider Website.
c. Personal Information Users
Visitors to Provider’s Website and/or Provider Internet Service may have the ability to register to purchase services. When Member registers, Provider will request some personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number and other relevant information.

If Member purchases by credit card, this information may be forwarded to Member’s credit card provider. For other types of registrations, we will ask for the relevant information. Member may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that Provider can provide assistance and information to Member. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.
Provider will not disclose personally identifiable information collected from Members to third parties without Member permission except to the extent necessary including:
– To fulfill Member service requests for services.
– To protect Provider from liability,
– To respond to legal process or comply with law, or
– In connection with a merger, acquisition, or liquidation of Provider.

Some of these web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on Member’s computer.

Provider prohibits web beacons from being used to collect or access Member’s personal information.
