SURFLINE acknowledges and respects the privacy of all of its users and is committed to protecting such privacy in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy also explains how you can ask questions and make suggestions about our privacy practices and review and update your personal information.

INFORMATION COLLECTED 

In the course of operating the SURFLINE Services, we may collect two types of information about our users: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information. 

"Personal Information" is personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, email address, birth date and gender and/or your company contact information. Personal Information is collected by us when you choose to provide it to us when registering for a SURFLINE Service you choose to subscribe to, when you enter a SURFLINE promotion or choose to receive a SURFLINE newsletter. In addition, if you choose to contact any of our customer service representatives, we may keep a record of that correspondence so that we may fully address the subject matter. We may also receive Personal Information from our business partners and other third parties, provided that such third parties confirm to us that you have permitted them to share such information. We will use this information to reply to your inquiries, to provide you with requested products and services, to set up your member's account, and to contact you regarding new products and services.

Business contact information such as the name, title, business address, email address or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization is not considered Personal Information. 

"Non-Personal Information" is information of an anonymous nature, such as an Internet Protocol Address (IP Address), the domain you may have used to access a SURFLINE Service, the type and version of browser or operating system you may be using, and the website you may have come from and visit next. Aggregate information, such as demographic statistics of our users (e.g. average age or geographical allocation of our users), number of visitors and average time spent on a SURFLINE Service, is also considered Non-Personal Information. 

SURFLINE derives or collects and uses Non-Personal Information in the course of operating the SURFLINE Services. For example, our Web servers may automatically collect Non-Personal Information which is provided through your browser or stored on a Cookie or through a Web Beacon when you choose to visit a SURFLINE Service. 

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION 

Personal Information may be used by SURFLINE for the following purposes: 

Providing you with the SURFLINE Services and information you have requested from us, including your use of the SURFLINE Site. SURFLINE may from time to time use your Personal Information to contact you about changes, enhancements or similar notices related to the SURFLINE Services;  

If you indicated that you were interested in receiving offers or information from SURFLINE or certain of our selected sponsors or advertisers, SURFLINE may send you emailed materials and other mailings about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. If at any time you would like to end your subscription to any such email materials, you will be required to follow the links posted in the outbound emails; 

If you enter a contest or other promotion offered on a SURFLINE Site, we may, under the rules of the promotion, use your name and certain other information to administer the promotion, such as contacting, announcing and promoting the winners of the promotion;  

SURFLINE, if it has reasonable grounds to believe the information could be useful when investigating a contravention of a federal, provincial or foreign law or in order to protect or defend a legal interest, may also use Personal Information. 

DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION 

SURFLINE will not sell or rent out your Personal Information to any third parties. 

SURFLINE will only disclose your Personal Information to third parties under the following reasons: 

LINKS TO OTHER SITES AND ADVERTISEMENTS

A SURFLINE Service may contain links to other websites and services. While we try to link only to sites and services that share our high standards and respect for privacy, please understand that SURFLINE is not responsible for the content of, or the privacy practices employed by, other companies or websites. This Privacy Policy applies only to the SURFLINE Services referencing this Privacy Policy.

The security of your Personal Information is important to SURFLINE. SURFLINE takes technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps to protect Personal Information that you provide to us. We instruct our employees with access to your Personal Information that it is to be used only in adherence with the principles set forth in this Privacy Policy and the laws applicable to each specific business. 

In certain areas, such as when you provide credit card information to us, SURFLINE works to help protect the security of your credit card information during transmission by using industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. 

You can help protect the security of your Personal Information as well by taking certain simple precautions:  never give out your password, since this is what is used to access your Account or Registration Information.
