Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. Because we gather certain types of information about the users of Economic Engine's network of sites and services, we believe you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

Information Collection and Use
Economic Engine is the sole owner of the personal information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Economic Engine collects information from our users at several different points on our web sites. Wherever we collect personal information, we include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page. When you register with one of our sites or sign up to receive one of our newsletters, Economic Engine may ask for your contact information (such as your email address) and your demographic information (such as your zip code, industry, and job function). We use demographic information to tailor your experience at our web site, showing you content and advertisements that we think might interest you. Economic Engine may also ask for such information at other times, such as when you request information or when you decide to purchase products or services from Economic Engine and/or our customers and suppliers. Economic Engine will not disclose any of your personal information, except as described in this Privacy Statement, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, or to protect the rights or property of Economic Engine. The information collected by Economic Engine may be used in a number of ways. For example, Economic Engine will share broad aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. An example would be where Economic Engine provides partners and advertisers with information about the percentage of men or women who visit our sites, or about the types of industries that users come from. Economic Engine's goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with the most personalized web experience possible and our advertisers with an efficient means to reach the right audience. By knowing a little about you, Economic Engine is able to deliver more relevant content and advertisements, and hence a better service, to you. Economic Engine uses a reputable third party to deliver some of the emails you may receive from our site and to serve some or all of the advertisements that are placed within those emails.

Promotional Emails and Direct Mail
Our web sites provide you with the choice to receive promotional emails from Economic Engine and/or its partners. If you choose to receive promotional emails from Economic Engine and/or its partners, you will be giving Economic Engine permission to access your information on behalf of pre-screened third parties for marketing or promotional purposes. We will not share your information with our partners unless you have opted in to receive promotional emails from such partners. If you have chosen to receive such emails and later change your mind, you can remove yourself from this distribution list via a link in the communication or by unsubscribing at this site. Economic Engine and/or its partners may also send direct mailings to your postal address from time to time. If you do not want to receive direct mailings from Economic Engine and/or its partners, you can remove yourself from this distribution list by notifying us through the link set forth below. In addition to Economic Engine, agents working on behalf of Economic Engine under confidentiality agreements, and certain suppliers who are in contract with Economic Engine, may send you carefully selected e-mails or direct mailings about products and services that may be of interest to you. Economic Engine does not control or monitor the newsletter and/or direct mailings or product updates sent by these suppliers.
If you do not wish to receive the promotional e-mails or direct mailings set forth above, please click here to opt-out.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information associated with the user. We use cookies to be reminded of who you are and to access your account information (stored on our computers) in order to deliver to you a better and more personalized service. This cookie is set when you register. Cookies are used by Economic Engine on our sites to help Economic Engine track visits to and business at its stores and process the items in your shopping basket. Cookies are also used to estimate our audience size. Each browser accessing Economic Engine is given a unique cookie which is then used to determine repeat usage versus initial usage, and to help in targeting ads based on user interests.

Third Party Cookies
In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertiser may place or recognize a unique "cookie" on your browser that does not contain any information about the user.

IP Addresses
We use IP addresses for purposes of system administration, and to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

This web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Economic Engine is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Tell an Associate
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend's email address. Economic Engine will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. Economic Engine stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.

When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry -- SSL. We use secure servers to protect all of your personal information, including your name, address, email and credit card information. It is generally considered safer than giving your information over the phone. We process your credit card number over our secure server that is the industry standard. Whenever we transmit any credit card information, we use a completely secure transmission method. In order to further protect your personal information, we store your credit card number in a separate location from your registration information.

Site and Service Updates
We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to un-subscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email or phone.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
