Collection and Use
Secretary Co. is the sole owner of the information
collected on this Web site. Any information collected from our
users will not be sold, shared, or rented to others in ways
different from that disclosed in this statement.
Qwerks and Regnow are the only third party order processing
companies we use. These two companies do not retain, share,
store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary
On our order form users
are asked to provide contact information (e.g. name and address)
and payment information (e.g. credit card number, expiration
date). This information is used for billing purposes, to fill
customer's orders and, if the customer chooses, may be used
for future promotional offers. If we have trouble processing
an order, this contact information will be used to get in
touch with the user.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends,
administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad
demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are
not linked to personally identifiable information.
This Web site contains links to other
sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the
privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users
to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy
statements of each and every Web site that collects personally
identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely
to information collected by this Web site.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site will request
information from users via surveys or contests. Participation
in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary, and
therefore, the user has the choice of whether or not to disclose
such information. Information requested may include contact
information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic
information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information
will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey
information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving
the use and satisfaction of this site.
Secretary Co. offer a trial version available
for downloading. During the trial download process, the user
has a choice to opt-in or opt-out of certain options. For
example, these may include the option to receive occasional
Co. product news and special offers via e-mail.
This Web site takes every precaution
to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive
information via our Web site, your information is protected
both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks
users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card
number and/or social security number), that information is
protected with the best encryption software in the industry:
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). While on a secure page, such as
our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers
such as Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer shows a locked
icon, as opposed to unlocked when you are just 'surfing'.
To learn more about SSL, follow this link http://www.verisign.com/site/ssl.html
Secretary Co. also does everything in
their power to protect user information off-line. All of our
users' information remains confidential in our offices. And
the servers on which we store personally identifiable information
are kept in a secure environment, behind locked doors.
If you have any questions about the security
at our Web site, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Modifying/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable
information changes (such as the postal code) or if a user
no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct,
update or remove that user's personal data.
Our users are given the opportunity
to 'opt-out' of having their information used for purposes
not directly related to our site at the point where we ask
for the information. These types of options may include receiving
product specific news, 3rd party contact, or even adding your
e-mail address to a contest list. For example, our order form
has an opt-in/opt-out check box, so users who prefer not to
receive any marketing material or product updates can keep
their e-mail address off our lists.
Users who no longer wish to receive our
newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may
opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe
in the subject line in the e-mail or e-mail us at email@example.com.
Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy
policy, we will post those changes on our home page so our
users are always aware of what information we collect, how
we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose
it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable
information in a manner different from that stated at the
time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an e-mail.
Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their
information in this different manner. We will use information
