We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (Personal Information) or allows us to contact you. Generally this information is requested when you are asked to register before participating on our website, entering a contest, or ordering e-mail newsletters. We use your Personal Information for four primary purposes:
- To help you quickly find services or information on etcTips.com
- To help us create content most relevant to you.
- To make the site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
- To alert you to special offers, updated information and other new services from etcTips.com.
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of the features on etcTips.com. However, you will not be able to access areas that require registration. etcTips.com may offer newsletters, which are sent only to opt-in lists. They also include a very easy and simple way to be removed once you have joined.
etcTips.com strictly protects the security of your personal information and honors your choices for its intended use. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Distribution of personal information
etcTips.com does not distribute personal information to any third parties. Should this change, etcTips.com will not distribute any information without your prior express consent.
Third Party Ad Servers
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit etcTips.com. These third-party companies may use information (generally, not including your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) about your visits to this Web Site and to other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. These companies may employ cookies and clear GIFs to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and clear GIFs is generally not personally identifiable (unless, for example, you provide personally identifiable information to them through an ad or e-mail message).
Measuring our visitors
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site. The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.
If for some reason you believe etcTips.com have not adhered to these principles, please notify us by e-mail at [email protected] and we will do our best to determine and correct the problem promptly.
