Personal information collected by Yarnspirations.com about its users is used internally by authorized employees of Yarnspirations.com for three main purposes: First, we collect personal information to figure out which areas, features, and products our users like the most and find most helpful, so we can continue to improve the web site. Second, we collect personal information in order to personalize the web site for our users (for example, it allows us to know if you're a member or not). Finally, we collect personal information to enable our users to participate in sweepstakes, contests, services, and other activities on our web site.
Your personal information will only be disclosed to third parties in the following circumstances:
- when we are required or authorized by law to do so, for example, if a court issues a subpoena;
- when you expressly or impliedly consent to the disclosure;
- when the services we are providing to you require us to give your personal information to a third party your consent will be implied, unless you tell us otherwise;
- where it is necessary to establish or collect amounts owed to us;
- if the personal information is already publicly known.
If you send us an email with questions or comments, we may use your personal information to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. However, aside from our reply to such an email, it is not our standard practice to send you email unless you request a particular service that involves email communications. There may be times when you will have the opportunity to subscribe to an email list or electronic newsletter that will send information about our web sites or our advertisers to your email address. However, we will provide you with the option to change your preferences and opt-out of receiving those communications. You may request at any time that we not email you in the future by clicking the "unsubscribe" link which is included at the bottom of any email that you receive from us. If you unsubscribe, we will make reasonable efforts to discontinue these email communications as soon as practicable.
IP Address Tracking
All computers and servers on the Internet use IP addresses to recognize and communicate with each other. Collecting IP addresses allows us to administer and analyze our web site and report non-personal information (such as how many visitors we have). When you call up a Yarnspirations.com page on your computer, Yarnspirations.com servers enter the IP address of that computer into a log.
Your personal information and your password are safe. We use the latest encryption technologies, rigorous password protections, and limits on the number of people who have access to your information, all to guard against unauthorized access to your data.
