TikiKiti.com (the “Site”) strives to offer its visitors the many advantages of Internet technology and to provide an interactive and personalized experience. This policy covers how we treat personally identifiable information and other information that we collect, store, and receive, including information related to your use of the Site. Personally identifiable information is information about you that is personally identifiable, such as your name, address, e-mail address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. Please note this policy applies only to information collected by TikiKiti through the Site and does not apply to information collected or obtained by TikiKiti or its affiliates through other means. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that TikiKiti does not control.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE GATHER ABOUT YOU?
The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) Personally identifiable information, which includes personal information you voluntarily supply when you subscribe, order, complete a survey, register for an online discussion, enter a contest or provide your e-mail address and (2) Non-personally identifiable information, which includes tracking information collected as you navigate through the Site.
Personally Identifiable Information
Registration for Our Websites
Reader Surveys, Reader Panels and Market Research
TikiKiti may collect personal information from readers in connection with voluntary surveys. Data may be collected on the Site. The information you provide in answer to optional survey questions may be shared, but only in the aggregate, with advertisers and partners unless we notify you otherwise at the time of collection.
Non-personally Identifiable Information
Information Collected by Us Using Technology
In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may limit your ability to access certain portions of the Site, may affect the appearance of the Site on your monitor, or may require you to re-enter your User name and password, if applicable. Additionally, we may not be able to customize the Site's features according to your preferences. Finally, information you post to public areas of the Site is not private, and such information is not covered by this policy. Do not post personal information to public areas of the Site unless you intend to make that information public.
The Site logs Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We use this information in an aggregate fashion to track access to the Site.
Log Files and Your Reading History
We automatically log certain usage information about your visit to the Site. This information includes a reading history of the pages you view. We also use log files in the aggregate to analyze usage of the Site.
WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION WE GATHER ABOUT YOU?
TikiKiti may perform statistical, demographic and marketing analyses of subscribers, and their subscribing and purchasing patterns, for product development purposes and to generally inform advertisers about the nature of our subscriber base. We also use such information to allow advertising to be targeted, in aggregate, to the users for whom such advertising is most pertinent.
We may use demographic and preference information to allow advertising on the Site to be targeted, in aggregate, to the users for whom they are most pertinent. This means users see advertising that is most likely to interest them, and advertisers send their messages to people who are most likely to be receptive, improving both the viewer's experience and the effectiveness of the ads. We will disclose information to third parties only in aggregate form.

E-Mails From You: If you send us e-mails, you should be aware that information disclosed in e-mails may not be secure or encrypted and thus may be available to others.

WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE THE INFORMATION THAT WE GATHER?
If you have registered a User account with the Site, TikiKiti will not sell, rent, swap or authorize any third party to use your e-mail address or any information that personally identifies you without your permission. We do, however, share information about our audience in aggregate form.
We contract with other companies to provide services on our behalf, including credit card and billing processing, shipping, e-mail distribution, list processing and analytics or promotions management.

These service providers are restricted from using this data in any way other than to provide services for TikiKiti, and they may not share or resell this data.
We reserve the right to disclose your opt-out information to third parties so they can suppress your name from future solicitations, in accordance with applicable laws. We may occasionally release personal information as required by law, for example, to comply with a court order or subpoena. (For more information, see the "Compliance with legal process" section of this policy.)
