WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND WHY
Types of Information: You may visit this Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about you. When you visit our site you may provide us with two types of information: Personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis, and Site use information collected individually and then aggregated on a regular basis as you and others browse our Site.
Use of Your Personal Information: AVALA Marketing Group does not sell, share, transfer or otherwise disclose personal information to third parties; sister companies (affiliates), partners, and their marketing providers, all of which have comparable levels of privacy protection, except where disclosure is required by law. We may have agreements with marketing providers to provide specific services for you. When you request or use such services, we may share personal information with the marketing providers. In such cases, we will use good faith efforts to restrict the information provided to the information necessary for the provision of such services and limit any other use of the information. Consequently, we may transfer your information to countries throughout the world, wherever we or such third parties conduct business. We may additionally use, store, disclose or otherwise process the personal information you provide for any of the following purposes but, is not limited to:
We, or our hosting provider, may also share aggregated demographic information with our users, our affiliated organizations, and other organizations with which we do, or contemplate doing, business. Such information is aggregated and is not linked to any information that can identify individual users.
MARKETING SURVEYS, SOLICITATIONS, OR CONTESTS
From time to time, we may use personal information provided through product registration to request marketing information from you using surveys, solicitations, or contests. Additional information requested may include contact information (such as e-mail address) and demographic information (such as number of family members and income ranges). Participation in surveys, solicitations, or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice as to whether to disclose any information. We will use such contact information to notify winners and award prizes, to monitor or improve the use of one or more Sites or advertising, and to provide aggregated information for marketing analyses. We use this information to analyze your present and future needs related to our products and to send you further notices, promotions, solicitations, or brochures and other marketing materials regarding the Site and the products and services of our businesses and those of our affiliates and business partners or authorized dealers. Solicitations may take the form of mailings via U.S. mail or other couriers, or e-mail (if provided). If you do not want to receive these solicitations from us using the personal information provided by you through product registration cards or other sources, you may specify this during registration where and if indicated, you may unsubscribe to e-mail, or you may notify the individuals who handle database information as follows:

Definition of Cookies: Similar to other commercial Web sites, a technology called “cookies” may be used to provide you with tailored information. A cookie is a small piece of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive, so we can recognize you when you return. A cookie can contain information about you, your computer, your browser, your session, the Web sites you visit, and other information about you or others who use, or have used, the computer or browser you use to access the Internet. The goal is to save you time and provide a more meaningful visit.
Link with Personal Information: The cookies we use, if any, are not linked to any personal information while using our Site unless you have given us permission to link personal information to one or more cookies. You give us that permission any time you register on our Site, place an order through our Site, or identify yourself or the computer you are using through our Site. When this permission is given, the cookies we use may link your personal identifiable information with the pages on our site.
Notification and Rejection of Cookies: You may be able to set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. Most browsers permit you to disable or reject cookies. You can do this by setting the preferences in your browser. If you set the browser to reject cookies, you can use this Site, but you may not be able to use the full functionality or it may take additional time to utilize such functionality. Use the “help” feature of your browser to obtain more information about refusing cookies.
We, or our hosting provider, may collect traffic information from visitors for statistical analysis and Site improvement. When you access our Site, or our hosting provider, we may collect information about your visit in a log file on a server. Log file information may include, but is not limited to, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. We, or our hosting provider, use this information to analyze trends, administer Sites, track users’ movements in the aggregate, and gather demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses and other log file information are not linked to personal information. We do not try to track users or to identify users individually, except as otherwise stated in this policy, but we or our hosting provider, do review this information to understand overall trends and to determine what kinds of content are popular and useful to users.
LINKS TO OTHER WEB SITES
Where we collect nonpublic personal information from you we, or one or more of our service providers, use industry-standard encryption and security standards to protect such information. You can tell whether encryption is being used by noting the “locked” or other status indicator on the browser you are using. If the browser you are using does not indicate that the session is secure (e.g., by displaying https:// in your location field), you should assume that the connection is not secure and that third parties could intercept the information shared by you and us during that part of the session.
We also use commercially reasonable efforts to protect user information offline. All sensitive user information is maintained in our offices or at the facilities of our information technology provider(s). We cause access to servers and connections to be limited by key or other access. Only employees or agents who need the information to perform specific functions are granted access to personal information. We use reasonable efforts to assure that our employees and agents are informed of our security and privacy practices.

It may be impractical for us in some circumstances to prevent an AVALA Marketing Group client to whom you have supplied your information from continuing to use the information and opting out may not stop them from contacting you. You will need to contact them directly to opt out of any further use of your information.
We will use commercially reasonable efforts to timely make any changes you request. Such compliance may involve batch processing and other processes that take 30 days or longer. If you require an immediate change to your personal information and are unable to make such a change using the available Site resources, please contact us. If you opt not to receive such communications or allow us to share your information and then give your personal information to us again using a Site or under other circumstances that permit us to use your information, we will regard your opt-out as rescinded.
