1. Information We Collect

Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with smooth and efficient processing. This allows us to provide services and features that meet your needs.

In general, you can browse our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.  Once you give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us. If you choose to use our services, we may require you to provide contact information, billing information, shipping information and other personal information as indicated on the forms throughout our site. Where possible, we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to use a particular service.

If you decide to purchase items, we will require additional financial information.
We use your name, address, and other information to verify your credit card data.

We automatically track certain information based upon your use of our site. We use this information to do internal research to better serve you and improve our site.  This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, and your IP address.

We use data collection devices such as "cookies" on certain pages of our site to help analyze our web page flow, measure promotional effectiveness, and reduce repeated requests for data entry.  Cookies are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing customized services.  You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits.

Additionally, you may encounter cookies or other similar devices on certain pages of third party sites. For example, if you view a web page created by a merchant, there may be a cookie placed within that web page. We do not control the use of cookies by third parties.

If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.

2. Our Use of Your Information

We use your information to perform the services you request. We use the information you provide and other information we obtain from your navigation of the site to troubleshoot problems and enforce our User Agreement.

If you request a quote on an item, your contact information will be made available to the merchant(s) to respond with the information. If you choose to purchase an item for sale on our site, and you provide us with your credit card information, your shipping address, and billing information; this data will be made available to the specific merchant to bill you and deliver the item(s).

You agree that we may use personally identifiable information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze site usage, improve our content and product offerings, and customize our site's content, layout, and services. These uses improve our site and better tailor it to meet your needs.

You agree that we may use your information to contact you and deliver information to you that, in some cases, are targeted to your interests, such as targeted banner advertisements, administrative notices, product offerings, and communications relevant to your use of the site.    By accepting the User Agreement and Privacy Policy, you expressly agree to receive this information. If you do not wish to receive these communications, we encourage you to opt out of the receipt of certain communications on our notification preferences page. You may make changes to your notification preferences at any time.

3. Our Disclosure of Your Information

Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private.

As a matter of policy, we do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party. However, the following describes some of the ways that your personally identifiable information may be disclosed.

3a. Advertisers
We aggregate (gather up data across all user accounts) personally identifiable information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for other marketing and promotional purposes.  However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to identify you personally. Certain information, such as your name, email address, password, credit card number, and bank account number, are not disclosed to marketing advertisers ever.

3b. Legal Requests
AWS cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties, to enforce laws. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to legal liability.

4. Other Information Collectors

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties, whether they are linked to our site or other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them.

To the extent that we use third party advertisers, they adhere to their own privacy policies. Since we do not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy policies of that third party. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

4a.Yahoo! Mail
Before you can start using My Spam Gone (MSG) to filter your email messages, Yahoo! requires that you grant Automatic Login Access to MSG for your Yahoo! Mail account.  This permission is granted from a Yahoo! Specialized Login page found in the MSG software under the Process Menu | Yahoo! Login.

Yahoo! Mail makes you sign in at least once every two weeks.  Your login information must be stored on your base computer to make it possible for My Spam Gone to help keep you signed in when you are away from your base computer.  Your login information is encrypted (MD5) when stored on your computer.

If you have a smart phone, it stores the information needed to get to a special Yahoo! mail login page.  This login page requires a password to protect access to your mail account.

When you renew your login with Yahoo! Mail, MSG holds your login information in a secure folder on our server for about two hours.  Once the authentication is complete, this information is safely deleted from our server.

5. Security

AWS uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information, including " firewalls" and Secure Socket Layers. AWS treats data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.

6. Notice

We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amended terms on our site. All amended terms will note the date they became effective.
