1.0 Information Collected by SWVBRC
We will not knowingly use information collected on this website to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. SWVBRC collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
For purposes of this Privacy Statement, "Personally Identifible Information" refers to information that can directly identify an individual; for example, such information may include an individual's name, mailing address, phone number or email address.
1.1 Information that Is Automatically Collected
We use IP addresses, with the help of a business partner, to analyze trends, administer the website, track users' movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to Personally Identifiable Information.
1.2 Information that Is Collected by Cookies
2 Communications from SWVBRC
Welcome Emails and General Correspondence. We send a welcoming email to the email address associated with the account a user has created to verify the user's password and username. This process is designed to prevent e-mail addresses from being used without permission in the creation of a SWVBRC account. Established users will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive some of these types of communications. Please see our opt-out options below.
Site and Service Updates. We send the user website and service announcement updates. Users are not permitted to unsubscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the website and/or service. We may communicate with users to provide services that users request or to discuss issues relating to their account.
Surveys & Contests. From time-to-time our website requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and, as such, the user has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).
3 How Information Collected by SWVBRC Is Used
Demographic Information. We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. The aggregated demographic information is not linked to any Personally Identifiable Information that can identify any individual person.
Communicating with Our Users. We use Personally Identifiable Information (such as your name, telephone number or email address) to communicate with our users when they have questions, concerns or comments about their accounts or the services that we provide. If you contact us, we may or may not delete your emails or voicemails to us.
Information Shared With Third Parties. We don't share your information with third parties.
4. Correction/Updating Personal Information
Users wanting to update their information can do so by clicking Contact SWVBRC and insert current information and let us know if this is a new email or the same email. If it is a new email, request that we delete the old email. Provide the old email that needs to be deleted.
5 Opting Out
Users are provided an opportunity to "opt-out" of having their information used for purposes not directly related to the services they request. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from us may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying and typing 'unsubscribe' in the subject line in the email or selecting the opt-out option in the email received.
6 Use of the SWVBRC Website by Persons Under Age 13
This website is not intended for use by anyone under the age of thirteen (13), and any individual under such age should not provide us with Personally Identifiable Information. We do not knowingly contact, market to, solicit, collect or use Personally Identifiable Information from or about any individual under the age of 13. It is possible that by fraud or deception we may receive information pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of that we have personal information regarding a person under the age of 13, as soon as we reasonably verify the information, we will either obtain parental consent or otherwise delete the information from the account and/or service. However, the information may remain on a log in our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by children under 13, please do so by emailing us at: email@example.com.
