YOUR INFORMATION AND HOW WE USE IT
This Site collects two kinds of information: (1) information that personally identifies you (such as your name and e-mail address); and (2) information that does not personally identify you (such as the number of users who log on to the Site on a daily basis). AIS does not engage in selling the personal information of our users to third parties. AIS may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) AIS's web site and AIS's rights or property. AIS may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. There are cases where AIS may ask you for personal information such as your name and email address. For example, we request personal information for services that require registration or subscription. AIS may also need to collect this information for fulfilling prizes when contest are held online.
From time to time, we may collect non-personally identifiable information from you through the standard operation of our servers. Such information can include the type of browser being used (e.g., Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer), the operating system you are using (e.g., Windows 7, Windows 8, Macintosh), the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., Verizon, ATT Uverse), and the number of users that visit a specific page on the Site and the character and duration of such visits. This information may be used to help analyze site traffic and improve our services. We may also aggregate such information to create statistical data and share it with potential advertisers, partners, affiliates and other third parties. At no point, however, will the aggregated information personally identify you.
CHILDREN UNDER 13
This Site is operated in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. We do not request children under the age of 13 to provide more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity on the Site. In any event, Children under the age of 13 should not provide any personally identifiable information on the Site without the knowledge and permission of a parent or guardian. If (at the point where a user's personally identifiable information is collected) we determine that such user is under the age of 13, the personally identifiable information provided by such user will not be used or maintained without the consent of his/her parent or guardian. In certain circumstances, we may require children under the age of 13 to provide us with the contact information for their parent or legal guardian. We will use this information (i) to notify such parents or legal guardians of their children's participation in an activity on the Site and of our privacy practices, (ii) to seek consent to their children's participation in an activity on the Site and/or (iii) other legally permissible purposes. Without his/her parent's or legal guardian's permission, a child under the age of 13 may not be able to participate in certain activities. A parent or legal guardian can request that we remove, change or refuse further submission of information relating to a child under the age of 13 by contacting us at the address/number below. Any such request must contain the child's name, address and e-mail address so we can locate such child's information.
USE OF IP ADDRESSES
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. AIS collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information, and to audit the use of our site. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Users should be aware that when you are on www.americaninfosource.com you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. These other sites may send their own cookies to users collect data or solicit personal information. While AIS strives to protect its user's personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk. AIS's policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond AIS's control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation. We encourage you to note when you leave this Site and to read the privacy statements of such other web sites before submitting any personally identifiable information.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, AIS can't ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
TRANSFER OF ASSETS
As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or all or substantially all of our assets, personally identifiable information, non-personally identifiable information, and any other information that we have collected about the users of the Site will be transferred to such entity as one of the transferred assets. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered an asset of ours and as such may be sold or transferred to third parties.
