This statement sets out the privacy practices and policies of Elite Website Designers (“Article Marketplace”) in relation to any information that you may share with Article Marketplace.
Article Marketplace reserves the right to update this policy from time to time, on reasonable notice to you. Your continued use of any website or service covered by this policy after we have notified you of an amendment will constitute your agreement to the same.
In this statement, when we talk about “Article Marketplace” or “we” or “our”, we are referring to Article Marketplace Media Company, and its majority-owned or controlled subsidiaries.
- Personal Information
In connection with your use, from time to time, of the Article Marketplace website or service, you may be required to provide Article Marketplace with certain personal information, including without limitation, your name, address, telephone number, electronic mail addresss, credit card information, bank account information, and your social insurance or social security number (collectively, your “Personal Information”).
Article Marketplace will use your Personal Information to establish your account, to communicate with you, to remit payments to you from time to time if and when due, and for ongoing record keeping, as required by law.
Article Marketplace will not release Personal Information about you without your permission, except:
- (a) as permitted in this policy statement;
- (b) as permitted in any written agreement between you and Article Marketplace;
- (c) where we believe it is reasonably necessary to conduct business; and
- (d) where we believe it is necessary to enforce our rights under any agreement between you and Article Marketplace.
Article Marketplace will provide both a means for you to manage and control the information that you have voluntarily provided to us and a means for you to communicate your privacy questions and concerns to us.
We will not knowingly collect Personal Information on users under the age of eighteen. We encourage parents and guardians to monitor the Internet based activities of their children.
- Anonymous Information
“Anonymous Information” is information other than Personal Information, and includes the domain names, IP addresses and type of browsers that you may use, from time to time, referring URLs, and other, non-personally identifiable information.
When you access any site or service covered by this policy statement, we collect Anonymous Information. We use this information for system administration, to market research (which is shared with our advertisers), to personalize your experience at our site, to show you more relevant advertising messages, and, generally, to improve our services. We share this Anonymous Information with selected advertisers and partners in order to deliver to you more relevant advertising messages.
Article Marketplace will not share any Anonymous Information if that information is or will be linked to your Personal Information, unless we have given you notice as described above and you have given us authorization to do so.
- Sharing Personal Information
We will not share your Personal Information unless we have first given you notice that we might share your data, and you have authorized us to do so. Our partners who receive information from us have the right to use the data we provide them (sometimes, in connection with other information they may have gathered about you), but are generally prohibited from sharing this information with other companies or people. In addition, if we add new features or services that might require the sharing of your personal information with other parties, we will provide you with notice and the opportunity to opt-in to receive these offers.
In certain special cases, we may disclose your Personal Information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to you, or otherwise injuring or interfering with Article Marketplace’s rights, property or operations, other Article Marketplace users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We may also disclose your Personal Information when we believe the law requires it, or in response to any demand by law enforcement authorities in connection with a criminal investigation, or civil or administrative authorities in connection with a pending civil case or administrative investigation.
- Third Party Relationships
Article Marketplace has relationships with many of the best media and services companies throughout the world.
Whenever you provide registration information on certain co-branded Web pages or for certain services provided in conjunction with third party partners, some data you provide is shared with partners. You should make every effort to read the privacy policies provided by or in association with such third parties, and make an informed decision on your own whether or not to continue utilizing the services based on the privacy policies posted on these co-branded Web pages, at your own discretion.
Article Marketplace operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection. Article Marketplace has security measures in place to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your user data under our control. Unfortunately, no method of data transmission or storage is entirely secure, and while we make reasonable efforts to protect date stored on our networks, we cannot ensure or warrant that security of any information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Only authorized employees have access to the information you provide us. For example, we impose strict rules on Article Marketplace employees who have access either to the databases that store user information or to the servers that host our services. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, we make every effort (such as the use of employee passwords and non-disclosure agreements) to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
