The Information We Collect
At this site, you may from time to time be able to order products, enter contests, vote in polls or otherwise express an opinion, or subscribe to one of our services, such as our online newsletters. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected at these pages include: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs and services.
We may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit many of our web pages, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows XP or MAC OS) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink).

How We Use the Information
We may use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for our products, programs and services, to respond to your inquiries about our offerings, and to offer you other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you. We sometimes use this information to communicate with you, such as to inform you about upcoming events or recent news, to notify you when you have won one of our contests or when we make changes to our subscriber agreements, to fulfill a request by you for an online newsletter or to contact you about your account with us. We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We may also use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer you products, programs or services. We maintain several e-mail lists to keep interested persons informed about events and other items of interest. Individuals can sign up to join our mailing lists in several ways; for example, in response to an e-mail message or by using a form on our web site.

We do not sell, trade, lease, rent, loan or otherwise disclose the addresses on our lists to any third party.
We consider all information collected on this site to be our information. It will be collected from you via the forms in various locations on this site, but will not be shared with, bartered or sold to any third party. We take reasonable measures to protect the information you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure.

Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and/or Sponsors
This site may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy notices, as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third-parties. This site sometimes may offer contests, sweepstakes or promotions that are sponsored by or co-sponsored with identified third parties. By virtue of their sponsorship, these third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the contest, sweepstakes or promotion. We have no control over the third-party sponsors' use of this information. This site will notify you at the time of requesting personally identifiable information if third-party sponsors will obtain such information.

Third-Party Advertising
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

Updating, Correcting or Deleting Personally Identifiable Information
For instructions on how you can access the personally identifiable information that this site has collected about you online, or how to correct factual errors in such information, you may send an e-mail to: guestservice@showarecenter.com. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

Cookies
Cookies are pieces of electronic information that a website can transfer to a visitor's hard drive to help tailor and keep records of his or her visit to the site. Cookies allow website operators to better customize visits to the site to the visitor's individual preferences. The use of cookies is standard on the Internet and many major websites use them. Although most web browsers automatically accept cookies, you can usually change your browser to prevent or notify you whenever you are sent a cookie. This gives you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. Even without accepting a cookie, you can still access most of the features on the web site.

Opting-Out
After gathering any user information, we offer users the opportunity to remove their information from our active database so as not to receive future communications and/or to no longer interact with the website until they later choose to visit the 'members' section of the site and amend the instructions they have previously provided.

Security

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use the information we collect online.
Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this privacy notice. Inadvertent disclosures may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking the site for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.

Children's Privacy Policy
Children under 13 may not be fully capable of understanding the consequences of giving out personal information online. Therefore, we do not intentionally solicit any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. Accordingly, children under 13 years old may be restricted from participating in certain activities and transactions on ShoWareCenter.com.

  • We will not knowingly collect online contact information from a child under 13 without prior parental consent or direct parental notification of the nature and intended use of this information, which shall include an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity. This online contact information shall only be used to directly respond to the child's request and shall not be used for future contact to the child for other purposes without prior parental consent.
  • We will not collect individually identifiable offline contact information from children under 13 without prior parental consent.
  • We will not distribute individually identifiable information collected from a child under 13 to third parties.
  • We will not give the ability to children under 13 to publicly post or otherwise distribute individually identifiable contact information without prior parental consent. Areas on our site directed to children under 13 will make every effort to prohibit a child from posting contact information.
  • We will not entice a child under 13 by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity, to divulge more information than is needed to participate in that activity.

Contacting Us
