|This privacy statement covers the site at http://www.websterhall.com. Because Webster Hall Entertainment Corp. (hereafter "Webster Hall") wants to demonstrate its commitment to our users' privacy, it is disclosing its information practices policy and invites public comment on this policy. The statement explains the following:
- What personally identifiable information Webster Hall collects.
- How Webster Hall uses the information.
- That Webster Hall does not share user information except in limited circumstances.
- What choices are available to users regarding collection, use and distribution of the information.
- How users can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
- INFORMATION COLLECTION
Webster Hall is the sole owner of the information collected on the Webster Hall web site. Webster Hall collects information from our users at several different points on our web site.
In order to receive information by email, a user must first complete a registration form. During registration, a user gives contact information (such as age and email address). We use this information to tailor content on the web site so we can provide a more personalized experience.
We also request information from the user on our order form. A user must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number with expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact the user.
Like most standard web sites, we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We use a tracking utility that collates data from log files to analyze user movement.
Communicate Special Offers and Updates
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify the desire to receive email from us. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see the Choice/Opt Out section.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide a way for the user to opt out of these communications. Please see the Choice/Opt Out section.
Provide Service Announcements
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and with regard to issues relating to their account, we may reply via email or phone.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law where we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our web site. Where possible, we will notify affected users before disclosing information in response to a subpoena.
Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services.
In the event Webster Hall goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, Webster Hall, are not responsible for the privacy practices of any other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.
This web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When our order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry — SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just 'surfing'.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment, in a locked facility.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional communications may opt out of receiving these communications by sending email to email@example.com. We also offer an opt out mechanism at http://www.websterhall.com or the user may opt out by contacting us at the address below.
