What Information Do We Gather About You?
Respecting the privacy of visitors to MyPhotoDiet.com (the "Site") is a top priority of No Excuses Partnership, LLC. We collect information about our readers so that we can provide a more interesting and useful service, as well as more appropriate advertising. We ask for your name, email address, and other personal information when you register to use certain features of our Site, or if you sign up for special or personalized services, such as our discussion boards or email newsletters. We also may ask for this information at other times, such as when you enter contests or other promotions sponsored by us and/or our partners. We sometimes conduct surveys as well, although you do not have to respond to them.
If you use our recommendation service to email one of our articles to a friend, you will need to provide us with your friend's email address and your email address as a return address. We will automatically send this person a one-time email, with the recommended article attached, as well as invite your friend to visit and register with our Site. We will not use these email addresses for any other purpose.
As is true with most websites, we collect certain information automatically and store it in log files. We use this information for site security and to help us understand how people use our Site so that we can improve our Site and our users' respective experiences. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, and date/time stamp. For similar quality reasons, we use a feature known as a "cookie." Cookies are small files containing bits of information that websites transfer to your computer's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make the Internet more convenient by storing information about your preferences on a site. Although we may assign your browser a cookie, the cookie does not tell us who you are. Only you can tell us that. You have the option of setting your browser to reject cookies. Doing this, however, may hinder performance and negatively impact your experience on our Site.
Besides cookies, we may also use tiny electronic images (called "single-pixel GIFs" or "Web beacons"), which allow us to count users who have visited specific pages or access certain cookies. We may use single-pixel GIFs in the following ways:
When you register with us, we will collect your user ID and password as well as information we typically used for credit card transactions, such as your name, mailing and billing addresses (and shipping address, if different), telephone number, credit card number and credit card expiration date. Gathering this information allows us to process and fulfill your order and notify you of your order status. When you purchase an email gift certificate, we ask for the recipient's email address in order to complete the purchase and send the certificate. We will also use your information to contact you regarding your order if necessary. We require that you establish a "secure session" when submitting such information to us by using Secure Socket Layers (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts all information provided by you before it is sent. The information is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches our Web site's servers.
We may also collect your email address when you submit content to our Site (for example, a contest entry). Unless we get your approval, we will not display your address with your submission.
