This Policy describes the information collection, use, and dissemination practices of Adversend Inc, its parent, subsidiaries and registered d/b/a companies (Collectively Referred herein after as “Adversend Inc”) and all related websites owned or registered to Adversend Inc. It governs Adversend Inc’s right to collect, use, store and disclose information provided by You on its (a) this Website, (b) Adversend Inc’s other Websites, (c) on various Third Party websites, and (d) Adversend Inc's other information collection and distribution practices, including the acquisition of your information from and to Third Parties. Adversend Inc is not responsible for the information collection or privacy practices of third party websites or applications which Adversend Inc does not own or control.

INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, AND DISSEMINATION PRACTICES.
1.0. Collection of Information.
1.1. User Direct Information. Each time you provide or transmit information via the Website, Adversend Inc may obtain and collect personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your name, email address, mailing address, social security number, credit card information, bank account information and telephone or cell phone number (collectively referred to as "Personal Information").
1.2. Survey Information. Adversend Inc may collect Personal Information from you when you voluntarily complete a Adversend Inc survey, order form, or a registration page either online by using the internet or offline by providing this information through the mail, in person or using a telephone. This information may be collected by surveys, order forms, or registration pages operated by third parties. This method of collection is collectively known as a “Survey.” In such Surveys, Adversend Inc or a third party may ask you to provide Personal Information including your name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, social security number, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information as may be requested from time to time. Adversend Inc may also collect such information concerning you from another source and uses that information in combination with information provided from the Website or Surveys. Completing the Surveys is completely voluntary, and you are under no obligation to provide Survey Information to Adversend Inc or a third party.
1.3. Third Party Information. Adversend Inc may collect Personal Information from you when you provide information to a third party and Adversend Inc subsequently acquires or uses the information provided by the third party. Such information may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, industry of employment, personal and online interests, and such other information you may have provided to the third party. When acquiring this information, Adversend Inc seeks assurances from the third party that you agreed to provide and have such information acquired by Adversend Inc. If you did not give express permission, or you would like to remove your permission, you may suppress all of your information by sending notification to us at [email protected]
1.4. Other Methods of Collecting Personal Information. Other occasions when Adversend Inc obtains information from you include: (1) when you claim a prize or seek to redeem an offer by Adversend Inc or by a third party; (2) when you request assistance through Adversend Inc’s customer service department; and (3) when you voluntarily subscribe to a Adversend Inc service or newsletter.
1.5. Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology. Adversend Inc currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about you with information about you in its database. Additionally, Adversend Inc may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future.
(b) Web Beacons. A web beacon is a programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page, but can also be used to transfer your unique user identification to a database and associate you with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows Adversend Inc to track certain websites you visit. Web beacons are used to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes to determine products or services you may be interested in. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, Adversend Inc also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in Adversend Inc’s database.
(c) IP Addresses. Adversend Inc automatically tracks certain information based upon your behavior on the site. We may use this information to do internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on the site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on the site or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address. Your Internet Protocol ("IP") is a unique Internet "address" which is assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider ("ISP"). For local area network ("LAN"), DSL, or cable modem users, an IP address may be permanently assigned to a particular computer. IP addresses are automatically logged by Web servers, collecting information about a user's traffic patterns. While the IP address does not identify an individual by name, it may, with the cooperation of the ISP, be used to locate and identify an individual using the Web. Your IP address can, however, reveal what geographic area you are connecting from, or which ISP you are using. Finally, other websites you visit have IP addresses, and we may collect the IP addresses of those websites and their pages.
(e) Data Analysis. Data Analysis technology may be employed from time to time if used by a Client of Adversend Inc.
(f) New Technology. The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly developing. As a result, Adversend Inc strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of new technology.
1.6. No Information Collected from Children. Adversend Inc will never knowingly collect any Personal Information about children under the age of 13. If Adversend Inc obtains actual knowledge that it has collected Personal Information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from its database. Because it does not collect such information, Adversend Inc has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties.
1.7. Credit Card Information and Bank Account Information. Adversend Inc may, in certain instances, collect credit card numbers, bank account information and related information when an individual places an order on Adversend Inc’s Website. When the credit card or bank account information is submitted to Adversend Inc, such information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. Adversend Inc will use the credit card information or bank account information for purposes of processing and completing the transaction you requested on the Website, and the credit card information or bank account information will be disclosed to third parties as necessary to complete the requested purchase transaction.
2.0. Use of Personal Information.
The Website collects the following information: first name, last name, email address and zip code.
2.1. General Use. The following paragraphs describe how Adversend Inc currently uses Personal Information, but Adversend Inc may change or broaden its use at any time. As noted below, Adversend Inc may update this policy from time to time. Adversend Inc may use Personal Information to provide promotional offers to individuals by means of email advertising, telephone marketing, direct mail marketing, mobile marketing, SMS marketing, online banner advertising, and package stuffers, among other possible uses.
2.2. Email and Unsubscribe Policy. Adversend Inc uses Personal Information to provide third party promotional offers by email to individuals. Adversend Inc may maintain separate email lists for different purposes. If email recipients wish to end their email subscription from a particular list, they need to follow the instructions at the end of each email message to unsubscribe from the particular list. To unsubscribe from all Adversend Inc’s email lists, a person must send an email to [email protected].
Adversend Inc's unsubscribe process impacts only the future delivery of electronic mailings disseminated by Adversend Inc on its own behalf. You may still receive electronic mailings sent on behalf of Third Parties and your Personal Information may still be shared with Third Parties for use in offline marketing and data appends, including email appends unless you unsubscribe as provided above.
You should also note that unsubscribing from Adversend Inc’s electronic mailings will not automatically unsubscribe your information from any Third Party business associates and licensees of the data. Since Third Party associates and licensee partners maintain separate databases from Adversend Inc, and you will need to unsubscribe from each source individually, if desired. This allows you the freedom to pick and choose which subscriptions to maintain and which to discontinue.
2.3. Content of Email Messages. You may receive certain commercial email messages sent by third parties for products which may be of interest to you. In such case, an Advertiser's name will appear in the "From:" and the email will have a method at the bottom of the email to unsubscribe from that Advertiser. Adversend Inc is not responsible for third party emails sent to you.
2.4. Solicited Email. Adversend Inc only sends email to individuals who have agreed on the Website to receive email from Adversend Inc or to individuals who have agreed on a Third Party website to receive email from Third Parties. As such, Adversend Inc does not send unsolicited email messages. As a result, United States statutes requiring certain formatting for unsolicited email are not applicable to Adversend Inc's email messages.
2.5. Targeted Advertising. Adversend Inc may use Personal Information to target advertising to an individual. When an individual is using the Internet, Adversend Inc uses Technology Information to associate an individual with that person's Personal Information, and Adversend Inc attempts to show advertising for products and services in which the person has expressed an interest in the Surveys, indicated an interest by means of Technology Information, and otherwise. Adversend Inc may, at its discretion, target advertising by using email, direct mail, telephones, cell phones, and other means of communication to provide promotional offers.
2.6. Telemarketing. Adversend Inc may use Personal Information to advertise, directly or indirectly, to individuals using direct mail marketing or telemarketing using telephones and cell phones.

Moreover, by registering with, or requesting information from, a third-party advertiser at or through the Website or other advertisement media made available by us (e.g., email marketing), you agree that such action shall constitute a purchase, an inquiry and/or an application with the respective third-party advertiser for purposes of the ATSR and you may be contacted via email, direct mail and/or telemarketing by such third-party advertiser in accordance with the ATSR. Further, if you are residing outside the United States, by registering and using this Website, you acknowledge that the processing of your Personal Information may involve the transfer of such Personal Information from within or outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to countries within or outside the EEA whose data protection regulation may not be as stringent as that within the European Union.

If the e-mail address you provide to Adversend Inc is a wireless e-mail address, you agree to receive messages at such address from Adversend Inc or its business associates (unless and until you have elected not to receive such messages by following the instructions in the unsubscribe portion of this policy). You understand that your wireless carrier's standard rates apply to these messages. You represent that you are the owner or authorized user of the wireless device on which messages will be received, and that you are authorized to approve the applicable charges.
You acknowledge and agree that the SMS Service is provided via wireless systems which use radios (and other means) to transmit communications over complex networks. We do not guarantee that your use of the SMS Service will be private or secure, and we are not liable to you for any lack of privacy or security you may experience. You are fully responsible for taking precautions and providing security measures best suited for your situation and intended use of the SMS Service. We may also access the content of your account and wireless account with your carrier for the purpose of identifying and resolving technical problems and service-related complaints.
You may remove your information from Adversend Inc’s database. If you remove your information from Adversend Inc’s database it will no longer be used by Adversend Inc for secondary purposes, disclosed to third parties, or used by Adversend Inc or third parties to send promotional correspondence to you. You may remove your information by sending "STOP", "END", "QUIT" to the SMS text message you have received.

This information helps Adversend Inc to better understand the online habits of individuals so that Adversend Inc can target advertising and promotions to them.
2.10. Profiles of Individuals. Adversend Inc may use Personal Information to make a profile of an individual. A profile can be created by combining Survey Information and Third Party List Information with other sources of Personal Information such as information obtained from public databases.

Adversend Inc computers have security measures (such as a firewall and password protections) in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under Adversend Inc’s control.
