Information Collection and Use

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.

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.
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.
