Privacy Policy
Your privacy is very important to us. We want to make your
experience on the Internet as enjoyable and rewarding as
possible, and we want you to use the Internet's vast array of
information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.
We have created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm
commitment to privacy and security. This Privacy Policy
describes how our company collects information from all end
users of our Internet services (the "Services")-those who access
some of our Services but do not have accounts ("Visitors") as
well as those who may purchase Products and/or pay a monthly
service fee to subscribe to the Service ("Members")-what we do
with the information we collect, and the choices Visitors and
Members have concerning the collection and use of such
information. We request that you read this Privacy Policy
Personal Information Our Company Collects and How It Is
Introduction: Our company collects information in different ways
from Visitors and Members who access the various parts of our
Services and the network of Web sites accessible through our
Service. We use this information primarily to provide a
10/21/2020 Meticore | Privacy 2/10
customized experience as you use our Products and Services,
and generally, do not share this information with third parties.
However, we may disclose personal information collected if we
have received your permission beforehand or in very special
circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is
required by law or other special cases described below.
Registration: Members may be asked to provide certain personal
information when they sign up for our Products or Services
including name, address, telephone number, billing information
(such as a credit card number), and the type of personal
computer being used to access the Services. The personal
information collected from Members during the registration
process is used to manage each Member's account (such as for
billing purposes). This information is not shared with third parties,
unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances.
However, in instances where our company and a partner jointly
promote our Services, we may provide the partner certain
personal information, such as the name, address, and username
of persons who subscribed to the Services as a result of the joint
promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the partner to
assess the results of the promotion.
In this instance, personal information may not be used by the
partner for any other purpose. We may also generate nonidentifying and aggregate profiles from personal information
Members provide during registration (such as the total number,
but not the names, of Members). As explained in more detail
below, we may use this aggregated and non-identifying
information to sell advertisements that appear on the Services.
10/21/2020 Meticore | Privacy 3/10
Our Company Partners and Sponsors: Some products and
services may be offered to Visitors and Members in conjunction
with an affiliate, independent contractor seller or non-affiliated
partner. To provide Visitors and Members some of these products
and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain
personal information. In these instances, you will be notified
before any such data is collected or transferred and may decide
not to use that particular service or feature.
Additionally, our partners may have advertisements or cobranded Web Pages that are cosponsored by an affiliate,
independent contractor seller, or non-affiliated partner. Our
company may share non-identifying and aggregate information
(except as described above), but not personal information, with
such partners in order to administer the co-branded products or
services offered.
Online Shopping: At some Web sites, you can purchase products
and services or register to receive materials, such as a
newsletter, catalog or new product and service updates. In many
cases, you may be asked to provide contact information, such as
your name, address, email address, phone number, and
credit/debit card information.
If you complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift
order sent directly to a recipient, you may be asked to provide
information about the recipient, such as the recipient's name,
address, and phone number. Our company has no control over
the third parties' use of any personal information you provide
when placing such an order. Please exercise care when doing
10/21/2020 Meticore | Privacy 4/10
If you order services or products directly from our company we
will use the personal information you provide only to process that
order. We do not share this information with outside parties
except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
Online Advertisements: Our company may display our online
advertisements. In those cases we share aggregated and nonidentifying information about our Visitors and Members collected
through the registration process as well as through online
surveys and promotions with these advertisers.
Additionally, in some instances, we use this aggregated and nonidentifying information to deliver tailored advertisements or joint
ventures. For instance, an advertiser or joint venture company
tells us the audience they want to reach and provides us an
advertisement tailored to the audience. Based upon the
aggregated and non-identifying information we have collected,
we may then display or send the advertisement to the intended
audience. Our company does not share personal information
about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers or joint
venture companies.
Responses to Email Inquiries: When Visitors or Members send
email inquiries to our company, the return email address is used
to answer the email inquiry we receive. Our company does not
use the return email address for any other purpose and does not
share the return email address with any third party.
Voluntary Customer Surveys: We may periodically conduct both
business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our
customers to participate in these surveys because they provide
us with important information that helps us to improve the types
of products and services we offer and how we provide them to
10/21/2020 Meticore | Privacy 5/10
you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly
confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party.
Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.
We may take the information we receive from individuals
responding to our Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate)
it with the responses of other customers we may have, to create
broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as
gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment,
industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use
the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services
to you, and to develop new services and products. This
aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be
shared with third parties.
Promotions: Our company may offer polls, contests,
sweepstakes, drawings, games, content, or other promotions that
are sponsored by or cobranded with third parties. In certain
instances, company may have to supply personally identifiable
information of the winners to the third parties. Our company has
no control over third parties' use of this information.
You may be entered in a sweepstakes, contest, or other
promotion, simply by making a purchase from us or by providing
us with personally identifiable information for some other reason
or purpose. When the winning entries are chosen, only the
names and personally identifiable information of the winners are
shared with the entity administering the sweepstakes or contest,
so that they can notify the winners.
Special Cases: It is our company's policy not to use or share the
personal information about Visitors of Members in ways
unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you
10/21/2020 Meticore | Privacy 6/10
an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated
However, we may disclose personal information about Visitors or
Members, or information regarding your use of the Services or
Web sites accessible through our Services, for any reason if, in
our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so,
including: credit agencies, collection agencies, merchant
database agencies, law enforcement, or to satisfy laws, such as
the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Child Online
Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for
such information; to disclose information that is necessary to
identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may
be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or Terms Of Service, or
other user policies; to operate the Services properly; or to protect
our company and our Members.
