PRIVACY OF CHILDREN

The Site is a general audience website. We do not intentionally collect Personally Identifiable Information (as defined below) from users of this Site who are under the age of thirteen (13). If we become aware that a user of our Site is under the age of thirteen (13) and has provided Personally Identifiable Information to us by using our Site (e.g., placing an order or entering a sweepstakes, contest or other promotion, etc.), we will remove that child’s Personally Identifiable Information from our files. Where necessary, we may use such information to provide notice to the parents of the users under the age of thirteen (13) who are using the Site.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND HOW DO WE USE IT?

We collect and store "Personally Identifiable Information" and "Automatic Information."

Personally Identifiable Information. "Personally Identifiable Information" is any information that tells us who you are, such as your first and last name, your postal address and zip code, your e-mail address, your telephone number, your hobbies and interests, and/or information regarding your pets and purchases.

We may collect Personally Identifiable Information from you if you register with our Site, sign up for our newsletter, purchase products on our Site, enter a sweepstakes, contest, or other promotion, submit a rebate or coupon request, or otherwise voluntarily provide such information to us (e.g., via our "Contact Us" webpage or in connection with ratings, reviews, requests for advice, suggestions, testimonials, or any user-generated content, such as photographs and/or videos).

You may choose not to provide your Personally Identifiable Information to us by leaving the Site immediately. Please note that if you do not provide such information, you will not be able to place an order with us or enter any of our sweepstakes, contests or promotions, and we may not be able to send you our newsletter, process your rebate or coupon request, and/or respond to your "Contact Us" inquiry.

We may use the Personally Identifiable Information we collect from you to send you our newsletter, process a purchase, rebate, coupon or other request that has been placed by you, notify you regarding sweepstakes, contests, and promotions and/or for marketing Spectrum’s products and services (or the products and services of affiliated companies or marketing partners) via email, postal mail, and otherwise.

Automatic Information. "Automatic Information" is information automatically collected by our webserver (which may be hosted by a third party) or third party services (such as Google Analytics) that your web browser automatically makes available whenever you visit our Site.

Automatic Information is not generally associated with Personally Identifiable Information, but if it is, the Automatic Information will be treated as if it is Personally Identifiable Information.

We receive and store certain types of Automatic Information whenever you interact with us. This includes "HTML Cookies." An "HTML Cookie" is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a webserver and stored on your computer’s hard drive. HTML Cookies provide a means for websites that you visit to keep track of your online patterns and preferences. Among other things, HTML Cookies help us identify returning users and customize our services to a user’s needs. By understanding which areas of the Site a user has visited, HTML Cookies allow us to present information, products, and specials that may be of the user’s interest.

Spectrum may also use "Flash Cookies," which tracks a person's Internet use across multiple websites and are not deleted or controlled by users in the same manner as standard HTML Cookies.

In addition to HTML and Flash Cookies, our webserver automatically recognizes and/or collects (when possible) certain information, such as your domain name, IP address, type of computer, type of web browser, screen size and characteristics (e.g., color, resolution), operating system, and/or the city, state and country in which you are located. An "IP Address" is a number assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. We may also collect information regarding your Internet browsing history (e.g., the site you visited before accessing our Site, the search engine and search terms that you used, and information about your previous visits to our Site), the length of your visit, the pages you viewed, your Internet service provider, the language settings on your computer, and/or certain software (e.g., Java support).

We may use such Automatic Information for purposes of system administration, to improve the design and content of the Site, and/or to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We may also use such information in the aggregate to analyze Site usage and/or to assess the traffic to the Site.

This Site may have Google Analytics enabled. To find out how Google Analytics collects and processes data, read "How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps" (located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/).

HOW DO WE SHARE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?

We may transfer and otherwise disclose your Personally Identifiable Information and Automatic Information to third parties that are either subject to this Policy or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Policy.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we may transfer or otherwise disclose such information to third parties (a) for their marketing purposes, (b) that perform services on behalf of Spectrum, (c) in connection with the sale or purchase of subsidiaries or business units or the sale of Spectrum’s assets, (d) to meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request, (e) to protect and defend the rights or property of Spectrum or its affiliated companies, (f) to identify, contact, and/or bring legal action against someone who may have breached our Terms of Use, and/or (g) to act to protect the interests of our Site, users, or others as we deem necessary.

Do Not Track Disclosure. Spectrum does not track users’ behavior on our Site or across websites for the purpose of serving targeted ads, and, therefore, the Site does not respond to browser Do Not Track (DNT) signals. Third parties that have content embedded on Spectrum’s Site may set Cookies on a user’s browser and/or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a specific Spectrum Site from a certain IP address. Third parties cannot collect any other Personally Identifiable Information from Spectrum’s Site unless you provide it to them directly.

IS THE INFORMATION COLLECTED SECURE?

Information transmitted on the Internet and/or stored on systems attached to the Internet is not 100% secure. As a result, we do not ensure, warrant, or guarantee the security or integrity of such information. We will not be responsible for disclosure of any information due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized acts of third parties.
