InfoTycoon Privacy Policy

This Privacy Statement is effective as of April 25, 2012

Information Tycoon, LLC (InfoTycoon) is committed to respecting the privacy of Visitors to our websites and Users of our software products (collectively “Visitors”).  We have created this Privacy Statement to describe how our websites and software products operate, and how we collect, use, and share the information we collect.

This Privacy Statement applies to www.infotycoon.com and all other external websites, web-hosted applications, web pages and/or web properties and software products owned and operated by InfoTycoon (collectively “Sites”).

1. Collecting Personal Information

In order to provide you with access to certain services or data within our Sites, we may require that you provide certain personal information. This information may include your name, postal address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, subscriber name or screen name, password used to access our services, method of payment, and, if applicable, payment information, such as credit card number and expiration date associated with online purchases.

In addition, we collect (1) the e-mail addresses of Visitors that communicate with us via e-mail, post messages to our bulletin boards or post messages to our chat groups, and (2) information provided by Visitors in sales orders, registration forms, surveys, contest entries, and other submissions to us.

We also collect and track automatically (1) the home server domain names, IP addresses, type of client computer, and type of web browser of Visitors to our Sites, and (2) aggregate and specific information on what pages Visitors access and location information (please read Location Based Services section below).

2. Collecting Other Information

InfoTycoon uses several automatic data collection tools and techniques including cookies, clickstream, Geographic Information Systems (Location Based Services), and web beacons.

Cookies

Some of our Sites use a technology called “cookies” so that we can better serve Visitors when they purchase a product on our Sites, request additional information about our company, products or services, or participate in various activities posted on our Sites. A cookie is a bit of text that is placed on a user’s computer hard drive when certain websites are visited. These cookies may be placed by us or by third party vendors and are used to obtain data such as user-name, shopping cart contents, and web pages or advertisements viewed by the visitor. When the visitor revisits our Sites, we can recognize the visitor by the Internet cookie and customize the visitor’s experience accordingly.

You can set your browser to provide notice whenever a cookie is received, which gives you the opportunity to decide whether to accept it or not. Without cookies, however, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our Site features. For example, if you turn off cookies or refuse them, you will not be able to make purchases on our Sites.

Clickstream

Certain of our Sites may collect information about the “clickstream” of our customers during their visit to our Sites. This clickstream data contains the pages the Visitors came from, the navigational paths they took, and the areas of the Sites they visited.

From time to time, we track such information inside and outside of our Sites. Additionally, we may from time to time track and match clickstream data with personal information you provide to us in order to deliver content and other offerings – i.e., products and services that might improve your customer experience.

Location-Based Services

To provide GIS (geographic information systems)-based services, InfoTycoon and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your mobile device or computer. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by InfoTycoon and our partners and licensees to provide and improve GIS-based products and services. For example, we may collect geographic location and combine that data with additional data collected directly by InfoTycoon or from partners, licensees and 3rd-party data sources.

Web Beacon

Certain email communications you may receive from us may contain “web beacons.” Web beacons consist of a line of code on our Sites that delivers a small graphic image from another website or third-party ad server. The web beacon may not be visible as it is generally a 1×1 pixel that is often designed to blend into the background of a web page. Web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the web beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the web beacon appears, the time the page containing the web beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page and the information in cookies set by the third party. We may use web beacons for activities such as monitoring the effectiveness of ad banners in our email distributions.

3. Using Personal Information

Personal information we collect through our Sites will be used to, among other things, fulfill orders and requests for information, for marketing and promoting products and services of InfoTycoon and other entities that we believe you may find of interest, for feedback purposes, for a statistical analysis of users’ behavior, for product development or enhancement, for content improvement, to notify you of upcoming events and to customize content and layout of our Sites. Names, postal and e-mail addresses, and phone numbers collected through our Sites may be used to contact you regarding products and services and upcoming events we believe you might find of interest.

We also may use the personal information you provide for InfoTycoon internal purposes, such as administration and operation of our Sites, data analytics, and compliance with our legal obligations, policies and procedures.

4. Sharing Personal Information

We do not share or otherwise disclose personal information about our Site Visitors, except as described here or where permitted by law. InfoTycoon may share your personal information internally and with third parties that perform services for us or on our behalf (for example, credit card companies, financial institutions, shipping companies, consultants, advisors and market research firms). Service providers and suppliers are required to keep confidential and secure the personal information received from us and may not use it for any other purpose other than as originally intended. We also may disclose personal information when, in our judgment, we believe it is necessary or appropriate to prevent fraud, injury, or harm to persons or property, to protect our rights or the rights of others, or as otherwise required by applicable law, regulation or legal process.

We also may provide, rent, sell or otherwise share the personal information we collect from you for marketing campaigns conducted by us or by third parties that perform marketing services for us or on our behalf.

Personal information may also be transferred in connection with a business transition such as a merger, acquisition, insolvency, or asset sale involving any InfoTycoon business or asset to which the information pertains. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal information you have provided to us in a manner that is consistent with our Privacy Statement.

5. Protecting Personal Information

We maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of personal information you provide on our Sites.

6. Transferring Personal Information to Other Countries

Where permitted by local laws and regulatory requirements, we may transfer the personal information we collect on our Sites to other countries where we, and our service providers, do business, but we will do so only for the purposes described above.

Where required by law, you may request access to your personal information that we maintain. As permitted by law, we may charge a reasonable fee for providing access to personal information, but we do not charge for lodging a request for access.
