As part of the operation of iFanz.com, certain pieces of information are gathered about iFanz Members. Below are explanations regarding the types of information collected, what is done with it, and how to correct or change the information.
What Information is Collected?
As part of the iFanz Member registration process, the prospective member is asked to provide an email address and interest category selections. The prospective member, at their option, may voluntarily provide additional information, including personal, geographic and demographic information. In addition to the information provided by members, iFanz may also collect information about iFanz Members from and for third party sources. Furthermore, iFanz monitors incoming and outgoing Web site traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers and to administer its Web site. iFanz also uses this data to assemble broad demographic information about its members in general. The purpose of this data collection is to ensure that iFanz Members receive only the most relevant, targeted offers and information from iFanz.com.
iFanz uses “contact us” forms as a way for clients, potential clients and members to communicate with iFanz.com. iFanz collects the information supplied by the sender of the “contact us” form in order to establish and maintain relationships with clients, potential clients and members. iFanz also uses email links located on various pages of the iFanz Web site to allow you to contact iFanz with questions or comments you may have. iFanz welcomes these email communications and makes efforts to respond to these communications where appropriate. Email communications and the ideas sent to iFanz in these email communications become the property of iFanz.com. iFanz uses the email communications to evaluate and improve its services and Web site. iFanz also may save these email communications for future reference or use.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection
The safety of children is important to us. iFanz.com’s Web site is a general audience site and is not directed to children under the age of 13. Similarly, iFanz.com’s services are not directed to nor intended for anyone under the age of 13. iFanz will not knowingly accept members who are under the age of 13 years nor will it knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from or about anyone under the age of 13 years. Accordingly, when registering to become an iFanz Member, the new member must certify that they are not under the age of 13. iFanz relies on the truthfulness of this certification when accepting new members. In the event that iFanz eceives information that establishes that a member is under the age of 13 years, iFanzr eserves the right, which it will exercise, to terminate that member’s membership. iFanz will also delete all information in its databases about that terminated member. If you believe iFanz has any information from or about anyone under 13, please contact us at the address listed below.
iFanz will not provide personally identifiable information of an iFanz Member to third parties except as noted under “Limits of Confidentiality.” Personally identifiable information means the member’s name, residence address, email address, social security number or other information from which the member’s identity may be reasonably ascertained. iFanzuses proprietary technologies to preserve the anonymity of members while matching the member’s interests with targeted information sent via email. iFanzwill under no circumstance knowingly reveal any member’s identity to marketers. It is solely at an iFanz Member’s discretion if he or she chooses to provide personally identifiable information to a marketer by making a purchase, requesting additional information, or communicating directly with the company or organization after visiting its Web site or otherwise.
Limits of Confidentiality
As part of its day-to-day business activities, iFanz may disclose certain aggregate level information about iFanz Members to certain third parties; principally, (1) iFanz’s Network Partners, and (2) Marketers who use iFanz.com’s network or database. Below is the information and circumstances under which iFanz may be required to disclose information to third parties. (1) Network Partners: When an iFanz Member registers through the Web site of a Network Partner, iFanz is obligated to disclose to that particular Network Partner the information submitted by the iFanz Member during the registration process. In addition to the foregoing information, iFanz may also disclose aggregate level information to the Network Partner about iFanz Members who registered through that particular Network Partner’s site.
Such aggregate information may include, for example, the number of individuals who registered through the Network Partner’s site; the turnover rate of iFanz Members who have registered through the Network Partner’s site; with respect to any particular campaign, the response rates of the iFanz Members who registered through the Network Partner’s site; and statistics on the interest categories selected by the iFanz Members who have registered through the Network Partner’s site. Subject to the exceptions discussed below, iFanz will not knowingly disclose any personally identifiable information about an iFanz Member to a Network Partner unless such personally identifiable information was provided during the registration process through the Network Partner’s Web site. (2) Marketers: iFanz will disclose aggregate and member level information about iFanz Members to marketers as reasonably necessary to explain the services that iFanz can offer, to report on the advertising campaigns that iFanz undertakes for any particular marketer, and/or to implement and explain campaign strategies.
Due to the existing legal, regulatory and security environment, iFanz may also be required, under certain circumstances, to disclose aggregate level and/or personally identifiable information about its members. iFanz will use its best efforts to limit such disclosure to the following: where iFanz believes in good faith that it is required to do so in response to a subpoena or other legal process; where reasonably required to do so in order to maintain, update or otherwise implement iFanz.com’s data security measures, equipment, technical operations and the like; or where reasonably necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities to preserve and/or enforce iFanz.com’s rights.
Use of Information
iFanz uses member information to deliver the iFanz services. Thus, member information is used by iFanz in identifying information that may be of interest to its members. A member’s email address will be used by iFanz to contact that member about member-selected interests. iFanz also uses member information to monitor, interpret, analyze and report campaign results. iFanz does not use member information for purposes unrelated to the services offered by iFanz.com.
Protection of Member Information
iFanz undertakes substantial efforts to protect the confidentiality of the identity, preferences and other information it has collected about individual members and will never knowingly allow access to this information to anyone outside iFanz other than to the member or as described above under the heading Limits of Confidentiality.
You should also do your part in protecting your information. Your iFanz user name and password are confidential and we recommend that you not divulge them to anyone. Unfortunately, neither iFanz network nor data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect member information, iFanz cannot ensure or warrant the security of member information. Thus, any information a member transmits to us is done so at the member’s own risk. Once we receive member information, iFanz undertakes substantial efforts to protect the confidentiality of this information consistent with this Policy.
Modifying Member Information or Terminating Membership If a member terminates their membership, the past member will no longer receive any communications from iFanz.com. iFanz will not sell, rent, or otherwise use the information about former members.
