Registration

Registration is not required for any user to use this web site. Any information submitted by any user is at the user’s sole and exclusive discretion.

Order

We request information from the user on our order form.  Here, a user must provide contact information (such as their name and billing address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date).  This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders and requests for information. If we have trouble processing an order, this information is used to contact the user.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user may be limited in some areas of our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie, if any, is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We do not currently employ the use of cookies on our site.

Some of our business partners use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies. For these cookies, please refer to the owner of such cookies (that is, the advertiser placing the cookie on your computer).

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. The purpose of gathering this information is to improve the quality of the information presented to you on our site. The information in the aggregate currently being collected on our site includes peak usage periods, top documents, top paths, referring URL, domains, operating system, browser, screen resolution (including color depth), errors, and search keywords.

Sharing

We may, at our sole discretion, share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

We may use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and we may use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

We partner with other parties to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.

These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Links

This web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we, RTMAF, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware of when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site they visit, especially those that collect personally identifiable information.

Choice/Opt-out

Although we do not currently share personally identifyable information with others, our users will be given the opportunity to “opt-out” of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information, should we choose to share such information in the future. If we do decide to share such information in the future, then we will use our best efforts to notify those users who have submitted personally identifyable information to allow them to opt out.

Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our web site so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. Unlike other sites, any changes to our Privacy Policy will become effective with respect to any information collected from the point this policy has been changed. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
