Collection of Your Personal Information: In order to access DEALPalette services, you will be asked to sign in with a unique name or an identifier such as an e-mail address and a password, which we refer to as your credentials. In most cases, these credentials will be part of the DEALPalette network, which means you can use the same credentials to sign in to many different DEALPalette sites and services, as well as those of its select solutions partners. By signing in on one DEALPalette site or service, you may be automatically signed into other DEALPalette sites and services. If you access our mobile ondemand solution services via a mobile phone, you may also use your telephone number and a PIN as an alternative credential to your username and password. As part of creating your credentials, you may also be requested to provide one or more questions and secret answers, your business license, which we use to help verify your identity and assist in resetting your password, as well as an alternate email address. Business order processing and other similar services may require added security, and in these cases, you may be asked to create an additional security key. Finally, a unique ID number will be assigned to your credentials which will be used to identify your credentials and associated information. At some DEALPalette sites, we ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

We may collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with DEALPalette sites and services. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses. When you receive newsletters or promotional e-mail from DEALPalette, we may use web beacons (described below), customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or other information. In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with DEALPalette solutions, information collected through one DEALPalette solutions service may be combined with information obtained through other DEALPalette solutions services. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies that enable us to derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your geographic area.
Use of Your Personal Information: DEALPalette collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve its sites and deliver the services or carry out the transactions you have requested.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting on behalf of our customers, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. We may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on DEALPalette; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of DEALPalette (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of DEALPalette services or members of the public.

Security of Your Personal Information: DEALPalette is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol or SSL VPN.

If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users. You should also clear your browser's history as an added security measure.
Collection and Use of Children's Personal Information: Many DEALPalette sites and services are intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. When a DEALPalette solutions site does collect age information, and users identify themselves as under 13, the site will either block such users from providing personal information, or will seek to obtain consent from parents for the collection, use and sharing of their children's personal information. We will not knowingly ask children under the age of 13 to provide more information than is reasonably necessary to provide our services. Please note that if you grant consent for your child to use DEALPalette services, this will include such general audience communication services as e-mail, instant messaging, and online groups, and your child will be able to communicate with, and disclose personal information to, other users of all ages. Parents can change or revoke the consent choices previously made, and review, edit or request the deletion of their children's personal information. If we change this privacy statement in a way that expands the collection, use or disclosure of children's personal information to which a parent has previously consented, the parent will be notified and we will be required to obtain the parent's additional consent. We encourage you to talk with your children about communicating with strangers and disclosing personal information online. You and your child can visit our online safety resources for additional information about using the Internet safely.
Use of Web Beacons: DEALPalette Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that may be used to assist in delivering cookies on our sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. DEALPalette may also employ Web beacons from third parties in order to help us compile aggregated statistics and determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns. We prohibit Web beacons on our sites from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information. Finally, we may work with other companies that advertise on DEALPalette sites to place Web beacons on their sites in order to allow us to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on a DEALPalette site results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser's site.
Use of Third Party Ad Networks: The majority of the online banner advertisements you see on DEALPalette solutions Web pages are displayed by DEALPalette. However, we allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to display advertisements on DEALPalette Web pages. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer in order to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. DEALPalette does not have access to the cookies that may be placed by the third-party ad servers or ad networks.
Controlling "Spam" or Unsolicited E-mail: DEALPalette is concerned about controlling unsolicited commercial e-mail, or "spam." DEALPalette has a strict Anti-Spam Policy prohibiting the use of e-mail account to send spam. DEALPalette will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber lists to third parties. While DEALPalette continues to actively review and implement new technology, such as expanded filtering features, there is no currently available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited e-mail. Using tools such as the Inbox Protector and being cautious about the sharing of your e-mail address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited e-mail you receive. Spammers steal domain identities and you may feel that it may have come from us. Please look carefully again. If you see a spam email with our domain name, look at the signature trace and send it to your local city, state, and federal authorities as they can sometimes find out where it came from and help prevent it. We will work directly with them.

We respect privacy choices of our members.
