COLLECTION OF INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN
The Site is not directed to, or intended for use by children (defined as anyone under thirteen (13) years old). Children should not use or submit any information through the Site or its Services. If you are under the age of 13, you only may use the Services with permission from your parents or guardians. Operator does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users under the age of 13.
If a child under 13 submits information through any part of the Services, and we become aware that the person submitting the information is a child, we will attempt to delete this information as soon as possible.
Type of Information Collected. We may collect two general types of information when you use the Site:
- Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”), which includes your first and last name, home or other physical address, telephone number, email address, user id, other identifiers that permit physical or online contact with you, information provided when you apply for a job, or any information about you collected online and maintained in personally identifiable form in combination with any of the preceding categories. You also may view or engage with our Site and its Services through third-party social networking sites or social media plug-ins and applications, downloads or customer service inquiries. When you engage with the Site and its content through such third-party sites, plug-ins or applications, we may have access to certain information from your social media profile, such as your name, photo, gender, birthday, location, videos, your list of friends, etc. This information is included in the definition of PII.
HOW INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
We collect information both actively and passively. For example, we will collect information about you that you voluntarily provide while on the Site. In addition to information provided directly by you, we (and third parties that offer features through the Site) may collect non-PII through the use of “cookies,” “web beacons,” “Flash cookies” or by other electronic means.
Web Beacons. We, our third-party service providers and partners also may use “web beacons” or similar technologies. Web beacons are small strings of code placed on a web page to collect Data about how visitors use the Site. For example, web beacons may be used to count the number of users who visit the Site or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor to the Site. If you set your browser to turn off cookies, web beacons and similar technologies will detect your visits to the Site, but they will not associate your activity on the Site with information that otherwise would be stored in cookies. We do not control tracking technologies used by third parties on the Site.
Flash Cookies. The Site uses locally stored objects, also called “Flash cookies,” when it uses Adobe® Flash® Player (“Flash”) to provide special content such as video streaming, video on demand, video clips or animation. Flash, and similar applications, use Flash cookies to remember visitors Site settings, preferences and usages. Flash cookies are managed directly through Adobe’s website, rather than through your web browser.
Other. The Site may also use other data tracking analytics such as Google Analytics.

DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
WE, THE OPERATOR, WILL NEVER DISCLOSE NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU, THE CONSUMER, TO A THIRD PARTY FOR COMPENSATION WITHOUT PERMISSION. However, we may share your information as described below:
- Information You Elect to Share: You may choose to share information with Third Parties by clicking on links to those Third Parties from within the Site. In addition, you may elect to share information, including PII, through the Services offered on the Site by, for instance, posting comments on comment boards. Some of your activity on the Site, including content you have posted, is public by default. Some of this content may include PII.
- Information Disclosed to Vendors, Partners, Service Providers, and Others for Business Purposes: We may contract with vendors to provide services related to the Site and may share information with such vendors in order to provide products or services to you or to help maintain the Site. We also may share non-PII with our partners, service providers and other persons with whom we conduct business.
The Site may include a type of forum such as message boards, chat rooms, comment boards, blog and reviews that enable users to post a comment or communicate with each other. The Operator may, but is under no obligation to moderate or edit the forums and will not be responsible for the content or use of any material posted on any forum within the Site. The Operator retains the right to delete at any time and for any reason any material posted within the Site. Operator reserves the right to limit or restrict a user’s ability to post comments or communicate using a forum in its sole discretion.
We take information security seriously, and we use reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards, including security services provided by third-parties, to protect the PII we collect from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. But we have no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit even when a link may appear to those websites on our Site or through our Services. If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your PII.
Additionally, and as you are likely aware, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take commercially reasonable steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your PII, searches or other communications always will remain secure. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your PII, we will notify you if reasonably possible and as reasonably necessary so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may notify you under such circumstances using the e-mail address(es) we have on record for you. You are responsible for keeping this information current. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your PII. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s Web site at http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/ for information about how to protect against identity theft.
YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
Under California law, California residents may request once a year, free of charge, certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes, if any. Specifically, we will provide a list of the categories of personal information disclosed to third parties for third-party direct marketing purposes, along with the names and addresses of these third parties for the immediately prior calendar year. To make such a request, write to us at: SISEL International, LLC, Attn. Legal Department, P.O. Box 369, Springville, UT 84663. We reserve our right not to respond to requests submitted other than to the postal address specified above. You must provide us with the specific information regarding yourself so that we can accurately respond to your request. Be aware that not all information sharing is covered Shine the Light requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.
CALIFORNIA DO NOT TRACK DISCLOSURE
Certain web browsers may allow you to enable a “do not track” option that sends signals to the websites you visit indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is different than blocking cookies as browsers with the “do not track” option selected may still accept cookies. Right now, there is no industry standard for how companies should respond to “do not track” signals, although one may be adopted in the future. Operator does not respond to “do not track” signals at this time. If we do so in the future, we will modify this Policy accordingly. More information about “do not track” is available at www.allaboutdnt.org.
