Please read the following to learn more about our data collection policies and practices.
Types of Information That May Be Collected
The personally identifiable information we collect is used to facilitate delivery of products and/or services to our customers. In the process of providing these products and/or services, we require our customers to provide certain personally identifiable information. Specific details may include, but is not limited to the following and may be subject to change:
How Information is Collected
We may collect information from you in several different areas on the Site, including but not limited to those described below:
How We Use the Information We Collect
We internally use personally identifiable information about our customers to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize our site's content and layout. We believe these uses allow us to improve our site and provide better service to our customers.
We may occasionally use a customer's email address and, in rare situations mailing address or phone number, to contact a customer regarding administrative matters or notices.
We may use information in the file we maintain about a customer to resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems.
With Whom the Information May Be Shared
Information we collect may be accessed by a variety of parties, depending upon the project for which the information was originally collected, the terms of that engagement, and the policies into or out of which the consumer has opted. From time to time, we may send you offers from Expert Seats, its affiliated properties, and our promotional partners based on the information you have provided us. In addition, we may provide information we collect about you with third party companies regarding promotions, sweepstakes and other opportunities/offers. These third parties are subject to stringent data security and confidentiality requirements and, upon completion of their fulfillment services, all information is returned to Expert Seats or is destroyed.
While we believe this disclosure of your information will result in opportunities that may be of interest to you, you have the right to tell us not to give your information to any third party. If you want Expert Seats to keep all of your information we have collected confidential and not share it with any third party, please submit a written request to email address: email@example.com
Your request must include your name, email address, and mailing address. A signature is also required for any written requests that are sent by mail to the company address, located on our contact page. Please allow six weeks to process your request. After your request has been fulfilled, the only disclosures we will make are those required by law.
What Choices Do I Have About Expert Seats Collecting, Using, and Sharing My Information
It is possible for you to use much of our site without giving us any personally identifiable information. When you do register with us or give us personally identifiable information, you will have an opportunity at the time we collect your information -- to limit e-mail communications from SITE and from our third-party partners. You can request at any time that Expert Seats not send future e-mails to you, either by unsubscribing from the communication, or by contacting us directly. Also, as mentioned above, there are ways to limit the information collected through technology -- though some of our features won't work if you decide to do this.
What Security Precautions are in Place to Protect Against Loss, Misuse, or Alteration of Your Information?
We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. However, please keep in mind that "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet and/or the World Wide Web.
Chat Rooms, Forums, and Message Boards
The Site may make chat rooms, forums and message boards available to its users. You are not required to provide any personal information when using these areas but you may choose to do so. If you post personal information online, it will be publicly available and you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties. Expert Seats cannot ensure the security of any information you choose to make public in a chat room, forum, or message board. We cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy. Please exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these areas.
