Information We Gather and How We Use it
Our online ordering process and product information requests requires your contact information, such as your address, telephone number and e-mail address and billing information such as credit card number.
We also ask you to tell us how you heard about us. We use that information for our marketing needs.
By providing your contact information, we may contact you in connection with products and services that you request, such as confirming your request for information or confirming an online order. Any form submitted from Share News’ web site will also include your IP address. We use this to track fraudulent submissions and network abuse.
We respect your right to privacy and we understand that, as a visitor to Share News, you prefer to control your own personal information and preferences. For this reason, we may ask you to register or to provide personal information and preferences when you visit certain areas of Share News, download free software, request information, or subscribe to our newsletter.
We will guard the personal information you share with us to ensure the content, services, and advertising that we provide on www.ShareNews.com are always tailored to your current, designated preferences.
When you provide us with your name, e-mail address, mailing address or telephone number, we may use the provided information to alert you to new products, product upgrades, special offers and other information.
We do not offer or sell any user-provided information to third parties.
We respect the rights you give us when opting to receive e-mail communications and we enforce internal policies to preserve those rights. It is our objective to retain the long-term ability to continue to communicate with you.
If you do not want us to contact you, you may “opt out” of this preference at any time. You’ll always have the option to opt back in and have us contact you based on your previous or new preferences.
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still visit most of our website; however, you will not have access to areas that require personal identification.
If you elect to use our “Tell A Friend” feature to inform a friend about our website or our products, we ask you for the friend’s name and e-mail address. We will automatically send the friend an e-mail message with the specified information. We will not use the friend’s information to contact them in the future.
Our uses of “cookies” are limited to the following specific situations. The first situation is with respect to temporary cookies. There are two instances in which we use temporary cookies. First, if you are accessing our services through one of our online applications, our Web server may automatically send your browser a temporary cookie, which is used to help your browser navigate our site. The only information contained in these temporary cookies is a direction value that lets our software determine which page to show when you hit the back button in your browser. This bit of information is erased when you close your current browser window. If you come to our site from one of our business partners, our Web server may also send your browser a temporary cookie that reflects an “origination code” for that business partner. We use this information for statistical and marketing purposes.
