This notice describes our Policy with respect to data collected via e-mail and www.scott-companies.net (the “Website”). This policy does not apply to information we collect through other resources, nor does it apply to websites operated by third parties.
What information do we collect?
When you visit the Website, we collect certain information about you and your visit. In some limited instances, we may collect credit card information from you where applicable, to facilitate your purchases. We collect individually-identifiable personal information (“Personal Data”) that you provide to us such as your name, e-mail address, street address and telephone number. You supply us this Personal Data when you enter a drawing and/or take some other action to voluntarily supply your Personal Data to us.
In addition to Personal Data, we also collect non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our Website, which allows us to track the number of visitors we receive and the way they navigate through our site. This non-personally identifiable data includes information about the web site from which the visitor arrived and departs to as well as the IP address of the computer being used to access our Website. While it may be possible to correlate this information to particular individuals, we do not generally do so, and we limit our use of this information to its aggregate form reflecting all visitors to the Website. We may share this aggregated information with other third parties.
What do we do with the information we collect?
We use Personal Data in the aggregate, to assist us with conducting company operations and to measure response rates to our advertising. We use IP addresses and anonymous demographic information in the aggregate to share with advertisers and market researchers, and to improve the design of our Website so as to better serve our customers. We do not drill down into anonymous demographic information in order to analyze and/or collect personal information from these sources. However, we reserve the right to do so in order to investigate unlawful conduct and/or breaches of this Policy.
Do we share the information we collect with third parties?
We are not in the business of selling data about our customers. We may share aggregated Personal Data with agencies to provide information about measurement and response rates. Also, there are limited circumstances in which we share Personal Data with third parties. From time to time we may also engage the services of third parties to help us analyze use of the Website. These third parties are contractually bound to use the Personal Data only according to this Policy. They are not authorized to send you any information about goods and services from other companies without your express permission.
The Company may transfer Personal Data to an affiliate or third party as part of a transfer of business assets. Such a transfer would be within the scope of this Policy so long as the affiliate or third party agrees to continue to maintain use and storage of Personal Data in accordance with this Policy.
The Company may disclose user 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 causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the Website or the Company’s rights or property.
While the Company strives to protect Personal Data and user privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk. This Policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond the Company’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your personal information, the Company cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
The Website is not intended for children under the age of 18, and the Company does not intentionally collect Personal Data from children under 13. If you have reason to believe that we have collected Personal Data from someone under 18 years of age, please let us know.
