To that end, Estates & Rates gathers two types of information about You: 1) data that Users provide through optional, voluntary registration on Our Web Site, and 2) data that Estates & Rates gathers through aggregated tracking, mainly by tallying Web pages that are viewed by Users throughout Our Web Site.
With Whom Does Estates & Rates share Information?
As a general rule, Estates & Rates will not disclose any specific personal information that You submit to Us about You (“Personal Information”) in a manner that connects You with the Personal Information, except when We have Your permission or under special circumstances, such as when We believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. The following describes some of the ways that Your Personal Information may be disclosed.
Business Partners & Sponsors: Estates & Rates may disclose some or all of Your Personal Information to business partners or sponsors, but this use will be specifically described to You prior to data collection or prior to transferring the data. Many promotions offer opportunities to request additional information from sponsors. By requesting more information, you give Estates & Rates permission to transfer Your Personal Information to the sponsor so they can fulfill your request. In many instances, only your e-mail address will be shared. If more personal information will be shared with the sponsor, you will be notified prior to the transfer
Third Party & Aggregate Data: From time to time, you may be offered the opportunity to receive materials or special offers from third parties. If you opt to receive information from these third parties, Estates & Rates will (with your permission) share your name and e-mail address with such third parties. Under confidentiality agreements, Estates & Rates may match Personal Information with third party data. Also, Estates & Rates may keep track of what portions of the Web Site Users are visiting and other User statistics, and aggregate this information to help us create a better experience for Users of Our Web Site. This is all done without knowing your name or other Personal Information in order to describe our viewers and services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.
Other: Estates & Rates may also disclose account information in special cases when We have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating Our Web Privacy, or may be causing injury to or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with any of Estates & Rates’s rights or property, other Users, or anyone else. Estates & Rates may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.
How Can You Control The Usage Of Information?
In case you change your mind or some Personal Information changes (such as your zip code or e-mail address), we will try to provide a way to correct, update or remove the Personal Information that you give us. We also give you the opportunity to control the communications we direct to you. If a User wishes to update Personal Information or objects to any usage provided herein for any reason, he/she may e-mail the requested change to: ChrisBorunda@estatesandrates.com
What Happens When You Link To A Third Party Site?
You should be aware that when you are on Estates & Rates and/or Estates & Rates-affiliates’ Web site you can hyperlink, or be directed to, other Web sites that are beyond our control and/or outside our service. For example, if you “click” on a banner advertisement or a Estates & Rates search result, the “click” may transfer you off Our Web Site. These other Web sites may include sites of advertisers, sponsors, and partners that may use our and/or Estates & Rates-affiliates’ logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other Web sites may send their own cookies to Users, collect data, or solicit Information.
Please keep in mind that whenever You give out information on-line (for example, via message boards or forums) that information can be collected and used by people You do not know. While Estates & Rates and Estates & Rates-affiliates strive to protect Users’ information and privacy, We cannot guarantee the security of any information You disclose on-line, and You disclose such information at Your own risk.
Is Information Secure From Others Using The Web Site?
The security of all information associated with Our Users is an important concern to Us. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of Your information from Your computer to Our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, Estates & Rates and Estates & Rates-affiliates can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our on-line products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, Estates & Rates uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers (SSL). However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet.
