Collecting Information From Children Younger than 13
The Web site is not intended for use by those under the age of 13 years old. We do not knowingly collect or use any Personal Information from children younger than 13 years of age without obtaining verifiable parental consent.

Information We Collect From You
Our site's registration process may require users to give us contact information (like name and email address) and unique identifiers (like social security number or Tax Identification Number). The customer's contact information is used to contact the visitor when necessary. We use it to complete and support your purchases from and use of the Web site, to comply with any requirements of law, and to respond to any questions you might have. Unique identifiers (such as email addresses) are collected for use as account numbers in our record system. For Classified Service Provider (CSP) relationships, social security numbers are used to report income to the appropriate government authorities.

As you browse our web site, we may gather navigational and clickstream data that shows what pages are visited and how long various features are used. This information will not reveal your identity or be linked to you personally. We use this information to support your use of the Web site and to comply with any requirements of law. This data may be disclosed to third parties in aggregate only with no personally identifiable information ever being disclosed to affiliates.

Your Email Address and Communication With You
We do not rent, sell, or otherwise disclose your email address to third parties. We do not Spam (send advertising emails or solo ads) our users. Your email address is required for many parts of our service. An email address is required to set up an account and use our CSP or Data Feed services. All email we send is transactional (related to purchases or earnings) or relationship (about your account or AdConnect information) and is required in order to maintain your account with us. We do not send out any bulk advertising email.

We may choose to send a regular email to all users. This email may contain updates, news, and special offers, as well as information about your account. This email may contain advertising or offers from third parties and this will be indicated as such. If you do not want to receive this email, you will be able to opt-out from a link in the email as well as from your account page.

We may send email with the status and performance of your CSP site(s) to all customers who have created sites. If you do not want to receive this email, you can opt-out from the summary area of your Members page.

We will send email to you for other legitimate purposes as part of the site operation. You will get email confirmation when you register, send a data feed, create a CSP site, make a payment, and for other operational reasons.

Your IP Address
Your IP address is transmitted to each web server every time you make a request. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user's session will be tracked, but the user will be anonymous. We also use your IP address to make sure you do not see the same ad repeatedly.

Our Use of Cookies
Cookies are very tiny text files that are stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages that record your preferences. They cannot harm your computer and they do not contain any personal or private information. Most cookies expire after a certain time period. The most popular browsers, such as Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer, can be set to give you the option of accepting or rejecting all cookies.

Cookies are required to use our services. If you manage your CSP sites or Data Feeds on AdConnect we use cookies to perform "session tracking".  The contents of the cookie is simply a "key" to information that is stored on our site.  The actual information is not contained in the cookie nor transmitted over the Internet.  The session information stored on our site might include your account information, or a partially entered form.

To login to your account to manage and create CSP sites or Data Feeds, your browser will need to be configured to accept cookies. Here's how to do it: In Netscape Navigator, click the Edit menu and select Preferences from the browser's drop-down menu. In the tree structure, click Advanced (Netscape 4) or Privacy & Security (Netscape 7). Under Cookies, you can slect the option you feel most comfortable with that enables cookies. In Internet Explorer, click the View (older versions of Explorer) or Tools (current version) menu and select Internet Options from the drop-down menu. Click the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security heading, and select the option you feel most comfortable with that enables cookies.

Exceptional Disclosures
We may disclose your information if necessary to protect our legal rights, if the information relates to actual or threatened harmful conduct, or AdConnect has good faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the requirements of law or comply with governmental orders, court orders, or legal process served on AdConnect; or (2) to protect and defend the property or rights of AdConnect, the users of its website or the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk protection. If AdConnect should ever file for bankruptcy or merge with another company, we may sell the information you provide to us on the AdConnect.com website to a third party or share your personal information with the company we merge with.

Third Party Notice
This site contains links to other sites, and this service enables links to third party sites specified by Data Feeds in advertisements displayed on CSP and Data Feed customer sites. AdConnect wants you to be aware that when you click on links (including advertising banners), which take you to third-party Web sites, you will be subject to such third parties' privacy policies. While we support the protection of privacy on the Internet, we expressly disclaim any and all liability for the actions of third parties, including without limitation actions relating to the use and/or disclosure of Personal Information by third parties.

Future Use
From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our Web site periodically.

Site Security
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We offer secure web pages to collect certain kinds of user information and we store certain kinds of data in encrypted form. We follow reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of data stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by our web site reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. We always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site.

Credit Card Security
The Internet is a vast network of computers. Because the data passes from computer to computer, some Internet shoppers worry that unauthorized persons may intercept the data and gain access to credit card numbers, but shopping on a secure site is actually safer than handing a credit card to a waiter in a restaurant. Taking the steps below will lower the chances of interception of your credit card number:

  • Limit your online shopping to Internet merchants, such as us, with sites equipped with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL prevents unauthorized people from intercepting your data.
  • Use a browser that supports SSL. These browsers show a symbol in the status bar, such as a key or lock, when you are on a site that uses SSL. Most banks will cover the cost of fraud resulting from unauthorized use of your credit card or may limit your liability.

Credit card information collected is encrypted through Secure Sockets Layer before it is transmitted over the Internet.

We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities, and may in our sole discretion disclose Personal Information or other information to satisfy any law, regulation, subpoena, or government request. We reserve the right to release Personal Information or other information about users who we believe are engaged in illegal activities or are otherwise in violation of our Terms of Use, even without a subpoena, warrant or court order, if we believe in our sole discretion that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate the Web site, or to protect the rights or property of AdConnect, its affiliates, or any of their officers, directors, or employees, agents, third-party content providers, suppliers, sponsors, or licensors. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities we reasonably believe in our sole discretion to be unlawful.

Our Terms and Conditions take precedence over any conflicting Policy provision. We may change our Privacy and Security Policy by posting a new version of the policy on this page which it is your responsibility to review frequently.

Legal Disclaimer
This Site operates AS-IS and AS-AVAILABLE, without liability of any kind. We are not responsible for events beyond our direct control. This Privacy and Security Policy is governed by California law, excluding conflicts of law principles. Any legal actions against us must be commenced in California within one year after the claim arose, or be barred.
