We will not sell or disclose information to third parties without your consent or as otherwise provided in this Policy. You should know, however, that when you sign-up or use any of our products or services we may use information about who you are, and how you use our network, or other information as described in this Policy. We do this in order to provide you with better service and to enrich your user experience. Whenever our systems and the technology permit we will allow you to limit such use.
This policy is based on several simple ideas in which we believe:
• You should have notice of our practices, and how your personal information will be used for each service, so that you can be an informed customer.
• You should have a simple option to exercise your choice, whenever practical, to limit the disclosure of any personal information.
• Information about you should be accurate and maintained in secure systems.
• You should be able to communicate with us quickly and easily if you have any concerns.
• We will keep you informed through this site of any changes to our Policy.
WebmasterAdvance will revise and update this Policy if our practices change or as we add new services or change existing ones. We will also modify this policy if we find better ways to inform you of products we think will be of interest. You should refer back to this page for the latest information.
1. Information Collected About You.
We collect a variety of personal information about users of our products or services. Personal information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a customer’s name, address, e-mail address, or information about activities that is directly linked to that person (for example, location information).
WebmasterAdvance recognizes that parents often purchase products and services through our Clients for family use, including for use by minors. Any information collected from such usage will appear to be the personal information of the actual subscriber to the service, and will be treated as such under this Policy. Furthermore, WebmasterAdvance does not knowingly, directly or passively, collect information from children under the age of 13. If we create offers and products that make it appropriate to collect information from children under the age of 13, we will notify you of the change in this Policy. We also will ask a parent to confirm his/her consent in advance of any collection, use or disclosure of that information.
When our customer is a business or other entity purchasing service for employees or other authorized users, this Policy will generally govern the personal information associated with individual employees or authorized users. However, whether the business customer has access to personal information of employees or other authorized users will be governed by the terms of any service agreement. So, employees or other authorized users should check with the business customer regarding its privacy practices.
Our definition of personal information does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of services or customers from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no personal information will be included in the resulting data. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and customer needs so that we can better consider new services or tailor existing services to customer desires.
Here are the types of personal and other information we collect. You should refer to the rest of this Policy to see how we use, disclose and protect that information:
2. Information You Give Us:
We collect information you give us when you purchase an WebmasterAdvance product or use our services. For example, you may provide us an address when signing up.
Automatically Collected Information: We automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, when you visit the WebmasterAdvance site, our systems automatically collect your IP address and the type of browser you use.
Information from Other Sources: We may obtain information about you from outside sources and add it to or combine it with our account information. For example, we may use commercially available demographic and marketing information from third parties to help us better serve you or inform you about new products or services that we think will be of interest to you.
We may also purchase e-mail lists from third parties for advertising purposes. We only purchase lists for individuals that have specifically allowed sale of their e-mail address for marketing purposes. If you have previously requested to participate in an e-mail advertising program, the information we receive may include your name, information on previous transactions, or any other personal information you have provided.
3. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
WebmasterAdvance does not knowingly, directly or passively, collect information from children under the age of 13. If we create offers and products that make it appropriate to collect information from children under the age of 13, we will notify you of the change in this Policy. We also will ask a parent to confirm his/her consent in advance of any collection, use or disclosure of that information. You should be aware, however, that the WebmasterAdvance site may be used by minors without the knowledge of WebmasterAdvance. If that happens, any information collected from the usage will appear to be the personal information of the actual adult member and treated as such under this Policy.

Third Party Use. You should review the following section to understand when WebmasterAdvance discloses personal information to third parties.
5. Disclosure of Personal Information.
Information about our customers is one of our most important business assets, and therefore we strive to protect it and keep it confidential. We do not sell personal information to third parties without your consent. When and what types of information WebmasterAdvance discloses depends on the service and in some cases the choices you have made. We disclose personal information as follows:
Your Consent. WebmasterAdvance will not disclose personal information other than in accordance with this Policy. In general, that means that you must consent to the disclosure in advance. Depending on the service, we may obtain your consent in a number of ways, including:
1) In writing
3) Online by clicking a button
4) At the time of service initiation when your consent is part of the required terms and conditions to use the service
For example, your consent to disclose personal information can be implied simply by the nature of your request, such as when you ask us to deliver an e-mail or short message to another person. Your return address is disclosed as part of the service and your consent to do so implied by your use of the service. To determine how personal information may be disclosed as part of a particular service, you should review the terms and conditions of use for that service.
We share personal information with third parties as necessary to resolve a disputed transaction, perform a service on our behalf or that you have requested or to enhance our ability to serve you better. When the third party acts solely on our behalf, WebmasterAdvance will require them to follow our privacy practices. For example, our Clients process your orders. They can only use the personal information we give them to resolve the disputed transaction.
Business Transfers: Information about our customers, including personal information, will be disclosed as part of any merger, sale of the company assets or acquisition as well as in the unlikely event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.
Protection of WebmasterAdvance and Others: We release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena); to enforce or apply our customer agreements; to initiate, render, bill, and collect for services; to protect our rights or property, or to protect users of those services and other carriers from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, such services.
6. WebmasterAdvance Use of “Cookies” and “Sessions”
Cookies are small text files placed on your hard drive by a Web site when you visit. These files identify your computer and records your preferences and other data about your visit so that when you return to the site, the site knows who you are and can personalize your visit. For example, cookies enable a Web site shopping cart to function so that you only have to check out once.
“Sessions” means the period between the time a Member lands on the Site and exits the site by logging out, closing the browser window, or times out due to maximum allotted time or inactivity.
As technology advances and cookies and sessions provide more functionality, we expect to utilize them in different offerings in different ways. As we do so, this Policy will be updated to provide you with more information.
7. WebmasterAdvance Use of Web Beacons.
A Web beacon, also known as a Web bug, is a small, graphic image on a Web page, Web-based document or in an e-mail message that is designed to allow the site owner or a third party to monitor the address and other information of the site viewing the item. Web beacons are often invisible to the user because they are typically very small (only 1-by-1 pixel) and the same color as the background of the Web page, document or e-mail message. Web beacons are represented as HTML IMG tags in the Web page; users can click on “view profiles” of the Web page to see whether the page is using a Web beacon. Web beacons collect the IP address of the computer that the Web beacon is sent to, the URL of the page the Web beacon comes from and the time it was viewed. Web beacons can also be linked to personal information.
WebmasterAdvance does not place Web beacons that link to personal information on other sites, nor does it permit third parties to place them on our site. WebmasterAdvance does use Web beacons itself and may link a particular beacon to personal information.
8. WebmasterAdvance placement of Banner Ads on other Web Sites.
In the future, we may contract with other vendors to provide marketing services. If we do so, this Policy will be updated to provide you with more information.
9. Receipt of Marketing Materials from Third Parties.
You should be aware that not all advertisements appearing on or delivered to you are authorized by WebmasterAdvance. We continue to look for other options to continue to reduce these unsolicited bulk messages.
10. Network and Information Security
We maintain a variety of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information. For example, we use accepted tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to our systems. Also, we restrict access to personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. In addition, we work to protect the security of your personal information during transmission via the WebmasterAdvance Web site by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. Also, we use an SSL connection to enable you to securely view your account information on our Web site. You should be aware that WebmasterAdvance has no control over the security of other sites on the Internet you might visit, interact with, or from which you buy products or services.
An important part of protecting the security of personal information is your efforts to protect against unauthorized access to your user name and password and to your computer. Also, be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer and always log out of any site when viewing personal account information.
11. Checking Account Information for Accuracy.
Through our Customer Service Department, you can change or review account information, including information relating to features, service options you have selected. For Customer Care contact information go to the Customer Service section.
12. Updating this Policy.
WebmasterAdvance will revise or update this Policy if our practices change, as we change existing or add new services or as we develop better ways to inform you of products we think will be of interest. You should refer back to this page often for the latest information and the effective date of any changes.
