This Privacy Statement discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for our Website.

Information Collected on This Website and How It Is Used

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests or to otherwise tailor your experience on the Site. For instance, by setting a cookie on our Site, you do not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our Site. You may, however, still navigate our site if your settings reject cookies

Order Forms

Our Website uses order forms and registration for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect customer information such as an email address, street address or delivery address, type of business, credit card details, customer preference information, telephone number(s), as well as other similar personal or business information. This contact information from the order form is used to send orders and information about our company to our customers, to process payment for customer orders, or to provide product or customer support.

Please note that the customer's contact information may be used to communicate with the customer when necessary to perform customer service even if the customer has opted out of receipt of marketing communications. Customers may opt-out of receiving future mailings by changing your subscription choices in the Your Account section.

Newsletter /Opt-out

If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter or email prompts for our blog, we ask for contact information such as name, email address, city and state. (City and state simply helps us track geographic reach, and allows for local mailings regarding appearances in that area.) If you receive an initial newsletter, having not signed up via the website, it may be because you have expressed interest via previous personal or professional communications, or have purchased a product in the past. If you receive an email or other promotional materials in error, please accept our sincere apologies, and simply click the "opt out/unsubscribe" link to be permanently removed from our list. Compiling/updating mailing lists is a monumental task, and human error is sometimes a factor. We respect your privacy, and our intention is to send only occasional, requested emails that will provide information, inspiration and special offers to the recipient. Feedback of any sort is always appreciated.

Periodically, users elect to use our referral service to inform friends about our site. When this happens, we ask for the friend's name and email address. www.BestCollegeFit.com will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting her/him to visit the site. Our site stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The referred party may elect to contact us at www.BestCollegeFit.com to request the removal of this information from our database.

Public Forums

This site may make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to its users. Please remember any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution in how you participate.
