owned by Diligent Media and the following is our privacy statement.
Diligent Media maintains high standards for the protection
of privacy over the Internet. The purpose of this statement is to explain the
types of information Diligent Media obtains about visitors to
our websites, how the information is obtained, how it is used, and how visitors
can restrict its use or disclosure.
The only information Diligent
individual visitors to our websites is information supplied voluntarily by the
visitor. This means that you can visit our websites without telling us who you
are or revealing any information about yourself--we DO NOT track where you go on
our sites, so you never receive unsolicited emails from us or our advertisers.
To gauge the effectiveness of our websites, we do collect some
non-individually-identifiable generic information about our visitors. Our web
servers automatically recognize a visitor's domain name (such as .com, .edu,
etc.), the web page from which a visitor enters our site, which pages a visitor
visits on our site, and on some sites, how much time a visitor spends on each
page. This information does not reveal a visitor's identity. We aggregate this
information and use it to evaluate and improve our websites.
You can choose to provide individually-identifiable information to
Diligent Media in a number of ways through our websites - by ordering
a product or service from us, sending us email, registering to receive news or website
update information, or entering a contest. When visitors supply information
about themselves for a specific purpose, Diligent Media uses
the information for that purpose (such as to provide the information the visitor
has requested). In addition, when visitors use our websites to order products or
or to request information about our products or services, we may use the
individually-identifiable information as we would use the same information
obtained off-line--for example, to evaluate your product or service needs and contact you
regarding additional products or services you may find useful.
We do not sell or disclose individually-identifiable information obtained
on-line about our visitors to anyone outside of Diligent Media unless it is required by law, or disclosure is necessary to protect the safety
of customers, employees or property. If you provide individually-identifiable
information to us in the context of an event Diligent Media 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
individually-identifiable information to the co-sponsor.
While we do not disclose
individually-identifiable information obtained on-line about our visitors to
anyone outside of Diligent Media including advertisers, those
ordering products or services may receive site-specific
information regarding updates, news, conferences, contests, or other information
which we deem to be important to our visitors. This may include commercial
messages as part of the email. When commercial messages are part of the email
(or the entire email), it will be designated "Advertisement" or
Some of our websites may use "cookies" to
improve our level of service to visitors. Cookies are lines of text that are
transmitted to your web browser when you click on a site. Your browser stores
the information on your hard drive and when you return to that site later, the
cookie is transmitted back to the server that originally sent it to you. Cookies
provide a way for a server to recall a previous request or previous
registration, or to keep track of a transaction as it progresses, so that
information does not have to be repeated. To be notified when you are about to
receive a cookie you can configure your browser to alert you when a site is
attempting to send you a cookie and at that time you will have the option of
refusing the cookie. You can check your hard drive for cookie files, on the
"cookies.txt" file on your PC's hard drive; or under "magic
cookies" on a Macintosh.

employees to protect the privacy of information about our customers and expect

individually-identifiable information will be protected when you access our web
pages or order services from us over the Internet. We employ security
measures to safeguard your transactions with us.
