Your privacy is very important to ALightHere.com, and we desire to make your experience on the Internet enjoyable and rewarding, encouraging you to take advantage of the Internet's vast array of information, tools, and opportunities.
ALightHere.com collects information from Visitors and Customers who access the various parts of the site. This information is used to provide a customized experience for you. This information is generally not shared with third parties. However, this information may be disclosed if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below.
Customers are asked to provide information when they purchase Products including name, address, telephone number, and billing information. This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances.
However, in instances where ALightHere.com and a partner jointly promote our Products, we may provide the partner certain information, such as the name, address, and username of persons who ordered the Products as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of assessing the results of the promotion.
In this instance, personal information may not be used by the partner for any other purpose. We may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from personal information which Customers provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Customers). This aggregated and non-identifying information mayabe used as market and demographic information.
Some products and services may be offered to Visitors and Customers in conjunction with an affiliate or non-affiliated partner. To provide Visitors and Customers some of these products and services, the partner may need to collect information. You will be notified before any such data is transferred, and may decide not to use that particular service or feature.
Additionally, our partners may have advertisements or co-branded Web Pages that are cosponsored by an affiliate, independent contractor, or non-affiliated partner. Our company may share non-identifying and aggregate information, but not personal information, with such partners in order to administer the co-branded products or services offered.
Online Shopping: At some Web sites, you can purchase products and services or register to receive materials, such as a newsletter, catalog or new product and service updates. In many cases, you may be asked to provide contact information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information.
If you complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift order sent directly to a recipient, you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient's name, address, and phone number. ALightHere.com has no control over the third parties' use of personal information you provide when placing such an order. Please exercise care when doing so.
If you order products directly from ALightHere.com, the personal information provided will be used only to process that order, and will not be shared with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete the order.
Online Advertisements: ALightHere.com may display online advertisements. In those cases aggregated and non-identifying information about our Visitors and Customers collected through the registration process, as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers may be shared.
Additionally, in some instances, this aggregated and non-identifying information is used to deliver tailored advertisements or joint ventures. For instance, an advertiser or joint venture company tells us the audience they want to reach and provides an advertisement tailored to the audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information collected, ALightHere.com may then display or send the advertisement to the intended audience, but does not share personal information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers or joint venture companies.
When Visitors or Customers send email inquiries to ALightHere.com, the return email address is used to answer the inquiry. The return email address is not shared with any third party.
ALightHere.com may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys as they provide important information which helps to improve the types of products offered. Personal information in such surveys is confidential. Participation in customer surveys is voluntary.
ALightHere.com may take the information received from individuals responding to Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other customers to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information) to improve the quality of products, and to develop new products. This aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be shared with third parties.
It is our company's policy not to use or share personal information about Visitors or Customers in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first providing an opportunity to opt out, if such a situation should arise.
ALightHere.com may disclose personal information about Visitors or Customers, or information regarding use of the Web site if, in our sole discretion, it appears necessary to do so, including to credit agencies, collection agencies, merchant database agencies, law enforcement, or to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Child Online Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Acceptable Use Policy or Terms Of Service, or other user policies; to operate the Services properly; or to protect ALightHere.com and our Customers.
