By ACCESSING this site, you acknowledge reading the TERMS & CONDITIONS OF USE and PRIVACY POLICY and AGREE TO THEIR RESPECTIVE TERMS.  For the purpose of this document and the TERMS & CONDITIONS OF USE, consumer, customer, member, subscriber, contributor, visitor, or any other user of this site shall all be one and the same and treated in accordance with all policies then in effect.  Furthermore, you agree that your use of this site releases Windjammers Unlimited, Inc. (“WJU”), its owners, directors, officers, employees, agents, heirs, successors, and assigns from any claim that you may make against them.

WJU greatly respects your right to privacy. When you visit this site you may provide information on two different levels about your visit:

  • Anonymous statistics collected as you browse the site, and
  • Personal information you knowingly give us.

What information does the Web site gather? Please be assured that we do not collect personal information about you from the website unless you provide it to us. This means that you can visit our Web sites without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself (such as your e-mail address).

As you browse the site, our web servers collect information about your visit, not about you personally. Via web server logs, we monitor statistics such as:

  • How many people visit our site
  • Which pages people visit on our site
  • From which domains our visitors come (e.g., aol.com)
  • Which browsers people use to visit our site

None of this information is associated with you as an individual (see information about cookies below). We use these statistics to improve our Web site, to monitor its performance, and to make the Web site easier for you and other visitors to use.

What about pages that ask for personal information? When visitors supply information about themselves for a specific purpose, we use the information for that purpose (such as to provide the service or information the visitor has requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to purchase a product or service, receive information, manage online account registration, or apply for a job. The information may range from your zip code, to your phone number, account number, a credit card number, age, gender, mother’s maiden name, social security number, e-mail address, organization URL, resume, or mailing address.

When visitors use our Web site to order services, we may use this personally identifiable information as we would use the same information obtained in a traditional non-electronic manner. For example, to publish your name, address, and phone number in our directories (unless you have requested a non-published number), or to evaluate your service needs and contact you regarding additional services you may find useful. If you do not want us to contact you, you can remove your name from our telephone or mail solicitation lists e-mail request. Please note that this removes your name from WJU mail lists that you make select to be deleted from. However, to be removed from other websites in the WJU family of companies (“WJU Family”), contact them directly.

What happens to information when I fill out registration forms? The registration forms request accurate contact information (like name and e-mail address) and preferences that help us better serve you. Your name and e-mail address are used to send you information about our company, product updates, special offers, and newsletters. You may change your email, user ID or password online; or you can choose to remove your name from our user list by emailing us a request to remove your name.

To improve the services we can offer you, we may decide to expand the site’s capabilities for obtaining information about users in the future. We will update this privacy statement as policies change to ensure that you are aware of developments in this area.

Do you sell or give my information to companies outside of the “WJU Family?” We do not sell or disclose personally identifiable information obtained online about our visitors, to anyone outside of the “WJU Family” unless you specifically authorize it, to complete a transaction that you initiated, it is required by law, or disclosure is necessary to protect the safety of customers, employees or property. If you provide personally identifiable information to us in the context of an event WJU sponsors with another company, such as a contest, or if you register on a co-sponsored site or feature, you may also be providing the personally identifiable information to the co-sponsor. This will be made clear to you before you submit the information and you can decide whether or not to participate.

WJU may share non-personally identifiable information with non-“WJU Family” companies in order to assess the results of a promotion or event or to enhance your online experience. For example, we may provide statistical information that is not identified with you:

  • The number of people who visit the website, which pages were visited and for how long, and the referral URL.
  • When we host co-branded versions of the WJU site (or portions of the WJU site). Our co-branded sites may also contain clear GIFs (electronic images that allow this site to collect anonymous information about your visit to the site).
  • Non-personally identifiable information may also be disclosed to non–Family companies if it is required by law, or disclosure is necessary to protect the safety of customers, employees or property.

This information does not contain any information that would personally identify you. In addition, WJU may support features and content that appear on other companies’ web sites that you may visit. These companies may collect information about you, but WJU does not have control over the collection practices of these companies. If you are visiting a web site from a WJU link, please read the privacy policy of that web site for its policies regarding information collection and usage.  Does this site send e-mail to site visitors? At times, online surveys are conducted in which you can choose to participate. In addition, we may use e-mail to communicate with our customers, to respond to visitors’ e-mail, to confirm orders placed online, and to send information that a visitor has requested. Occasionally, we may use opt-in e-mail lists from third parties to promote our latest specials. If you receive an unwanted e-mail from us, you can notify us via e-mail and we will remove you from our list.  Do you accommodate links to other sites? This website contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites. We are committed to safeguarding customer privacy on our website. WJU may, however, host (or contract with third parties to host) web site advertising linked to the WJU site (the “Hosted Web Site Ad(s)”). If you provide personally identifiable information while visiting any Hosted Web Site Ad, you will also be providing the personally-identifiable information to the advertiser. In addition, WJU may share non-personally identifiable information collected from any Hosted Web Site Ad with non-“WJU Family” companies in order to complete a transaction that you initiated or to assess and report the results of the ad. WJU is not responsible for the privacy practices employed by the advertiser.  What is WJU’s position regarding online advertising and third party ad servers? WJU accepts advertisements from third parties that serve advertising into the WJU site. WJU may use “clear gifs” provided by such third parties in the pages containing the ad(s) that WJU sends to your browser. These “clear gifs” provide usage pattern information about the ads to third parties. The data does not contain personally identifiable information.

NOTE: This site may use Google Analytics which may collect more in-depth information about you depending on the OPT-IN or OPT-OUT criteria YOU have selected for GOOGLE and its related components.  WJU has no control over those criteria and options.  Therefore, it is possible that more information including personally identifiable information may be collected about you and your user experience on this site.

As part of the online advertising process, we may use information supplied from third party ad serving companies as well as other third party companies in several ways such as to:

  • gain a better understanding of the type of individuals viewing or visiting different web sites
  • evaluate and prioritize site selection when developing online media plan
  • geographically target advertising
  • deliver product and pricing advertising/information applicable to the customers’ state
  • gauge the effectiveness of our online advertising

Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically A cookie is a small, encrypted data string our server writes to your hard drive that contains your unique User ID for our Web site. Cookies help us to identify returning visitor’s to our websites, which allows us to give you a more personalized, useful experience on our website.

Cookies help WJU to enhance the user’s online experience and are used to:

  • deliver the appropriate geographic message
  • manage frequency of ad exposure; avoid over delivery of the same message
  • tailor an advertisement to better match your interests and preferences
  • ensure that you see the correct products and pricing applicable to the state in which you live understand advertising effectiveness

However, customers are free to delete website cookies. Most internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. To disable cookies, see “Setting Cookie Preferences” at the end of this policy.

However, you need to understand that some websites/adserving companies have the ability to reestablish your history even after cookie deletion, if you reenter the same site on another occasion, or some other site tracked by the adserving company/network, and specifically provide personal data.

Deletion of cookies alone does not prevent adserving companies from reestablishing history on a visitor. The visitor must either continue to decline cookies each time it reenters the site to keep the tracking severed, if desired, or opt-out. When you opt-out, your unique user ID cookie is erased and you are reassigned an anonymous, non-id cookie. This new cookie tells websites that you have opted out and they will then know not to attempt to assign other cookies to you in the future. Opt-out cookies do not contain a unique user ID number therefore websites are not able to identify your computer uniquely.

Customers who choose to continually delete cookies and not opt out can have their browser advise them each time a web site attempts to send a cookie to your system. At that time, you can choose to either Accept or Cancel a cookie.

Customers who choose to “opt out” after deleting cookies will receive an anonymous/non personally identifiable cookie.

Does WJU use the information provided online to profile its customers? The combination of offline and online information provided by the customer has the ability to enhance the customer experience, and make the consumer’s interaction with WJU more meaningful and relevant. WJU requires notification of any consumer profiling or purchasing behavior being captured by WJU online and combined with offline information be clearly stated to the consumer at the time of online data collection. The consumer will have the ability to choose not to have that information aggregated and be part of subsequent marketing campaigns by so indicating at the point of the application, or by choosing to Opt-Out of future marketing campaigns from WJU by informing us via e-mail.

Please note: We may disclose personal information when required by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law or to comply with a legal process served relating to our web site.
