At CivilScape News the privacy and protection of your personal and financial information is very important to us. That's why we've created this privacy statement, which fully describes our information gathering and dissemination practices. It is the best way we can demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. CivilScape News uses your personal information for the following purposes:
- Creating your CivilScape News account
- Personalizing delivery of the content contained within our Web site
- Facilitating restricted promotions and marketing efforts
- Personalizing content and information sent when you subscribe to our e-mail services
Use of Your Information
When you register, we ask for your name, company name, mailing address, e-mail address and in some situations, a phone number. We use this to contact you when necessary. CivilScape News may send you occasional promotional e-mail. We may, in the unknown future, send offers to selected groups on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your information. You do not have to receive such mailings and may unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in all e-mail. We may compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, including sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, and providing marketing assistance. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. We may also use information from your account based on your site visits to generate statistics and aggregate reports for internal use, which may be shown to affiliates, subsidiaries, licensees, successors, and partners. These statistics and aggregate reports will not contain any personally identifiable information and your identity will be kept anonymous. Certain confidential information--such as passwords and credit card numbers-- is not disclosed in any of these reports.
If you sign up for a service from CivilScape News, the information you give--such as your credit card number, purchase information, and contact information--is provided to the banking merchant. We will not disclose your personal information to third parties, except to the extent necessary to provide you with a requested service, under circumstances required by law, or--in limited cases--to our business partners as outlined in this policy.
You will not be contacted directly by any third party as a result of your relationship with CivilScape News unless you have given us permission to do so. Any business partners with whom we share your information will be subject to confidentiality restrictions preventing them from sharing your personal information with others.
Our site has stringent security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of information under our control.
When you transmit credit card information to complete a purchase or verify data, we always transmit that credit card number in an encrypted format. We use the industry standard 128-bit SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
In addition to our encryption standards, your CivilScape News account information is password-protected so that you and only you have access to this personal information. Please do not disclose your password to anyone. Always remember to sign out of your CivilScape News account and close your browser window when your transactions are complete. This helps keep your account safe.
While we strive to protect your personal information, no data transmission over the Internet is guaranteed to be 100% secure. Thus, CivilScape News cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information during transmission to or from our site, and you submit information to us at your own risk. However, we do our best to ensure the highest level of security on our systems.
