1. Purpose of Policy
2. Information We Collect
In operating the Site, we collect personal information from you in three situations. The first is if you sign up to receive a free CPA exam coaching guide at which time we collect your e-mail address and name. The second is if you should contact us via the “Contact” page. In doing so, you will be asked to provide us with your name and e-mail address. The third is if you leave a comment on a blog post. In doing so, you may be asked for your name and other information. You are not required to provide us with information via these three methods to use and enjoy the site.
(a) AUTOMATIC COLLECTION. Our servers automatically recognize visitor’s domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
(c) SPONSORS AND ADVERTISERS. We may decide to accept sponsorships and advertisements on the Site. Should this occur, you should assume said sponsors and advertisers will be given access to the impressions and click data on their marketing pieces. Your personally identifiable information will not be shared with these sponsors or advertisers.
3. Use of Your Information
In operating the Site, we may use your data in the following ways:
(a) PERSONAL INFORMATION. We do not disclose your personally identifiable information to any third parties other than those that we use to facilitate the functioning of the Site, such as a hosting company and e-mail program for mailings.
(b) ANONYMOUS INFORMATION. We use anonymous information to analyze our Site traffic. In addition, we may use anonymous IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our site or to display the content according to your preferences. Traffic and transaction information may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on an aggregate and anonymous basis.
(d) DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION. We may disclose any information we have for you if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary under the following circumstances: (i) to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served upon us; (ii) to protect and defend our rights, property or the users of the Site; and (iii) to act under exigent circumstances to protect the safety of the public or users of the Site.
(e) SALE OF INFORMATION. In order to accommodate changes in our business, we may sell portions of the Site or our company, including the information collected through this Site. If Anything Online or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, user information may be one of the assets transferred to the acquirer.
The Site has security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of the information that we obtain from you, but we make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss to you or to any third party arising out of any such loss, misuse or alteration.
