ProvidersWeb.com Privacy Statement

Information Collection & Use

Registration
In order to use this Web site, you must first complete the registration form and/or create a user name and password. During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to contact you about the services on our site in which you have expressed interest.

You have the option to provide demographic information (such as revenue, location, type of facility) to us; we encourage you to submit this information so we can provide you a more personalized experience on our site.

After you register you may receive periodic newsletters and updates.

ProvidersWeb, Inc. is the sole owner of the information collected on ProvidersWeb.com. ProvidersWeb collects personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on our Web site.

Orders
If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address). Financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date) is obtained by a third party entity, presently PayPal. ProvidersWeb relies upon the third party’s security and processing systems. You must acquaint yourself with the privacy policy of that agent to satisfy yourself that your financial information is protected.

This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we or the third party entity has trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.

Surveys or Contests
From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).

We use this information to notify contest winners and award prizes, to monitor site traffic or personalize the site (in the case of anonymous information collected in surveys), to send participants an email newsletter.

We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company will be prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

Uses of Information
The information collected from you will be used by ProvidersWeb to:

  1. Fulfill any order you make, including website subscriptions;
  2. Provide you with information about your order;;
  3. To enable our customer service representative to contact you, if needed;
  4. To ship your order;
  5. To tell you about special offers, products or events available to ProvidersWeb users;
  6. To bill you for products and services rendered.

Certain information from you will be used to develop demographics, usage studies and marketing analysis.

ProvidersWeb may permit other companies, previously screened by ProvidersWeb, to contact you, using this information, to offer information about their products and services.

Your information may be disclosed to others for limited purposes if it is required by applicable law or deemed necessary to protect the integrity of the ProvidersWeb Website in the discretion of ProvidersWeb.


Communications from the Site

Special Offers and Updates
We will occasionally send you information on products, services, special deals, or promotions.

Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. Please see the “Choice and Opt-out.”

Service-related Announcements
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.

Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.

Customer Service
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.

Profile
We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third party sources to create a “profile” of your preferences. We tie your personally identifiable information, and your purchasing history, to information in the profile, in order to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers and to improve the content of the site for you.

Supplementation of Information
In order to provide certain services to you, we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submitted to us with information from third party sources.

Enhancement of Profile Information
We purchase marketing data from third parties and add it to our existing user database, to better target our advertising and to provide pertinent offers in which we think you would be interested. To enrich our Profiles of individual customers, we tie this information to the personally identifiable information they have provided to us.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)
We share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our partners and advertisers. This information does not identify individual users.

The purpose is to better identify the market, target prospective users and tailor the content to the class of existing users. Partners are those whom we have investigated and feel that they have something to offer that benefits both ProvidersWeb and the users.

We do not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.

Personally identifiable information
We Share Personally Identifiable Information with Third Parties

ProvidersWeb may permit other companies previously screened by ProvidersWeb, (Partners) to contact you, using limited personally identifiable information (name, email address and demographic information, not personally identifiable financial information) to contact you to offer information about their products. You may opt-out of this activity (See Choice/Opt-out below).

Agents
We may use an outside shipping company to fulfill orders, and a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.

Legal Disclaimer
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.

Choice/Opt-out
We provide you the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes, when we ask for this information. For example, if you purchase a product/service but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form.

If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing us at support@ProvidersWeb.com.

You will be notified when your personal information is collected by any third party that is not our agent/service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party.

Log Files
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

Cookies
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on this site. We do link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site.

We use both session ID cookies and/or persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time.

We set a persistent cookie to store your username, so you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

If you reject cookies, you will not be able to login or register.

Some of our business partners (e.g., advertisers) use cookies on our site. We have no access to or control over these cookies. See “Third Party Advertisers.”

This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by ProvidersWeb.com only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers. See the “Third Party Advertisers” section.

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information. At the present time we do not use clear gifs in the web pages, only in the emails.

We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see “Choice and Opt-out.”

Links to Other Sites
This Web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by ProvidersWeb. Please be aware that we, ProvidersWeb, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.

This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this Web site.

Bulletin Boards/Chat Rooms
If you use a bulletin board or chat room on this site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

Access to Personally Identifiable Information
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by making the change on our member information page or by emailing our Customer Support at support@ProvidersWeb.com.

Security
Presently no encryption is provided on the site. No financial information is processed or stored on this site. All security for this information is provided by third party processors, e.g. Verisign and PayPal.

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can send an email to us at support@ProvidersWeb.com.

Business Transitions
In the event ProvidersWeb goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via email or prominent notice on our Web site for 30 days of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

Changes in this Privacy Statement
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, on the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.

Contact Us
If you have any questions or suggestions regarding our privacy policy, please contact us at: support@ProvidersWeb.com.
