If you choose to give us personal information through our Website in order for us to correspond with you or process an order, it is our intention to let you know how we will use this information.

Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, the Company has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the personal information we collect online. You should, however, keep in mind that no internet transmission is wholly secure or error-free.
Information collected by the Company is used internally by its authorized employees for three main purposes. First, we collect information to determine how to improve our Website by seeing which content areas, features and products are most popular with our customers. Second, we collect information in order to personalize the Website for our returning customers. For example, in the future, we may recommend products or features you may like based on what you have liked in the past. Third, we keep track of the domains from which people visit us. We analyze this data for trends and statistics, and then we discard it. We do not sell, rent, loan, or transfer any personal information regarding our customers to any unrelated third parties.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We may share Personal Information with our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, or other trusted businesses or persons for the purpose of processing Personal Information on our behalf, or performing other business services for us, for example: when receiving your payment, we will use a secure service such as PayPal. We expect all of our service providers use at least the same degree of care in protecting Personal Information as we do, and we provide them with information only to the extent necessary to assist us.
We may aggregate Personal Information, and disclose such information to third parties for a variety of reasons, including for advertising, marketing and promotional purposes. However, if we do this, we will not disclose information in a manner that directly identifies you.
We will not share Personal Information collected on this web site with third parties for their direct marketing purposes without your consent. In addition, the Company does not otherwise share Personal Information about site users with third parties unless doing so is appropriate to carry out a user's request or it reasonably believes that doing so is legally required or is in the Company's interest to protect its property or other legal rights or the rights or property of others, or necessary for national security, other law enforcement, issues of public importance or safety, or to enforce our Terms and Conditions or other policies.
If the Company should have its assets sold in a bankruptcy, or if it merges with another entity, information the Company receives from you from this site is a Company asset and may be transferred.
Protection of Personal Information
The Company uses reasonable procedural and technical safeguards to protect your Personal Information against loss, theft or misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure security on our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software.

By using this web site or providing personal information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of this site. The Company may post a notice on our web site if a security breach occurs. If this happens, you will need a web browser enabling you to view the BooksOnTV.com web site.
