INFORMATION COLLECTED ABOUT YOU
SyWest collects two kinds of information: (1) Personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") voluntarily provided by visitors through optional registration or other methods; and (2) non-personally identifiable information routinely gathered as visitors navigate through our Website.
You are free to visit and use our Website without providing any Personal Information. However, SyWest offers services on our Website that require registration and/or submission of Personal Information. In order to register or otherwise take advantage of the personalized services that we offer on our Website, you will have to provide Personal Information. The Personal Information that we request from you may include your name, address, email address and other information. Providing SyWest with your Personal Information is strictly voluntary.
Your browser may be set to reject all cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the "Help" section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookie(s), you may not be able to utilize some of the features of our Website.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information (which does not identify individual users) to analyze trends, to administer the Website, and to identify and solve hardware and software problems as they arise. We may link this automatically-collected data to your Personal Information for the purpose of determining your interests and to offer you goods or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
Information collected by third parties not acting on behalf of SyWest sponsors, partners or advertisers on the Website or in emails, special promotions, or newsletters we send you may also use their own cookies or web beacons when you click on their advertisement or link to their website or service, or even if the advertisement simply appears on a page or in an email that you are viewing.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. This Website is not designed for, nor is it intended to attract, children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information directly from any person under the age of 13, and if we do inadvertently collect information from a person under the age of 13, we delete it as soon as we discover it.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
In some circumstances, we must disclose your Personal Information to third parties who help us administer our Website or our services. These third parties are required to keep your information confidential and do not use your information for any purpose other than the purpose under which your information was collected.
We may also release Personal Information to third parties: (1) to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, court order, or legal process; or (2) in special cases, such as a physical threat to you or others, or to protect the rights and/or property of SyWest. Additionally, in the unlikely event that the entirety of our business is sold, liquidated, merged, or transferred to a third party, we may transfer all Personal Information and non-personal information to the party purchasing or merging with us.
DISCLOSURE TO OUTSIDE CONTRACTORS
We may employ independent contractors, vendors and suppliers (collectively, "Outside Contractors") to provide specific services and products related to our Website, including, but not limited to, maintaining an email suppression list as required by state and/or federal law, providing credit card processing and shipping fulfillment, fraud screening, testing and implementation of special services, such as those for contacting members and developing applications for our Website and email services. These Outside Contractors may sometimes have limited access to information collected on our Website, including your Personal Information, in the course of providing products or services to us. Access to your Personal Information by these Outside Contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for the Outside Contractors to perform their limited function for us.
DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTY SELLERS
Through our Website, you may be given the opportunity to purchase (or to obtain more information) regarding certain content, products or services which are sold through a person or company other than us or our affiliates (collectively, "Third Party Sellers"). We will attempt to notify you when you are dealing with a Third Party Seller by opening a new browser or otherwise notifying you that you are leaving our Website. However, we shall incur no liability if we do not so notify you. For example, if you see a phrase such as "powered by" or "brought to you by" followed by the name of a person or company other than SyWest, then you are likely on, or about to enter, a website hosted or operated by a person or company other than us. Third Party Sellers may request that you submit certain Personal Information (e.g., name and address for shipment purposes) to them in order to purchase their products or services or to obtain additional information from them. Alternatively, we may offer the products or services of these Third Party Sellers elsewhere on our Website. If you should make a purchase of these products or services, we will transmit your purchase data and your Personal Information to the Third Party Seller so that the transaction can be processed.

HOW SYWEST HANDLES SECURITY
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information on our Website, we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security, and we shall incur no liability if such security is compromised.
YOUR PRIVACY CHOICES
SyWest is a company organized and operated in the United States and all of our servers are located in the United States. Privacy laws differ in jurisdictions outside the United States. If you are located in a country outside the United States, please be aware that your Personal Information will be collected and stored in compliance with United States laws.
