Privacy Policy

Eripa.com takes your privacy seriously, and has created this Privacy Policy in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to online privacy. Eripa.com values your privacy, whether you just browse the Eripa.com Web Site ("Site"), use its freely-available services, purchase products or simply sign up for monthly e-mails. We strive to make our privacy practices in keeping with the highest standards on the Web, and we hope you'll agree. This privacy policy describes the kinds of information we collect, how we collect it and how we use it.

WHAT TYPES OF INFORMATION DOES ERIPA.COM COLLECT FROM ME?

Personally Identifiable Information. Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, credit card information and password ("Personally Identifiable Information"). We may collect Personally Identifiable Information from you when you (a) make a purchase, (b) voluntarily provide it when you use the Site, (c) disclose it in a public area of the Site (such as a message board) or (d) provide it when you communicate with us.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Non-personally identifiable information is information that does not identify you as an individual ("Non-Personally Identifiable Information"). Non-Personally Identifiable Information includes information such as your browser type, the URL of the previous Web site you visited, the Web pages and advertisements you view or select, and the types of services you use. Non-Personally Identifiable Information also includes "Aggregate Information," which is described below in the section titled "How Do We Use Non-Personally Identifiable Information?" We may automatically collect certain types of Non-Personally Identifiable Information from you when you use the Site. We may also collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information from you that you voluntarily provide (such as information included in response to a questionnaire or survey) or post to a public area of the Site (such as a message board).

HOW DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION?

Cookies. Upon your first visit to this web site, a "cookie" is sent to your computer. A cookie is a tiny file that identifies you as a unique user. It stores personal preferences and user data, however, in no way does this tell us who or where you are. A cookie is a message that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies may in the future contain Personally Identifiable Information, such as your email address but are not currently active. We may use cookies to (a) store your password if you're one of our members, so you don't have to enter it each time you log on (a feature we may use in the future but is not currently active) and (b) keep track of which shopping cart belongs to you when you shop. (c) remember your last visit. We use cookies only for the operation of our Site.While these activities depend on the use of a "cookie," visitors to this site always have the option of disabling cookies in their web browser. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent.

IP Address. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer automatically when you use the Internet. We may collect IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration, server problem diagnosis and to compile aggregate information (such as how many visitors logged on to the Site). When you visit a particular Web page on the Site, our servers log your IP address. Your IP address is not linked to your Personally Identifiable Information.

Pixels. Pixels, also called clear GIFs, are invisible files on Web pages that you visit. If you visit a page on the Site that contains a Pixel, the Pixel communicates with your computer to determine, among other things, whether you have been to that page before or viewed a particular advertisement. We use Pixels to track usage of the Site.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?

Personally Identifiable Information. In general, we will never disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties without your permission. If you make a purchase, we only use the Personally Identifiable Information you provide for shipping and billing purposes and only, unless you expressly give us permission to use it for promotional and marketing purposes. We may also use the Personally Identifiable Information you provide to (a) administer and manage your account (not currently active), (b) include you on mailing lists and (c) advertise and promote our services. In addition, we may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information when we believe in good faith that it is required by any applicable law or legal process, or if we believe we need to disclose it to protect or enforce our rights.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We may disclose Non-Personally Identifiable Information in connection with improving the services we offer and facilitating our marketing efforts. In addition, we may combine your Non-Personally Identifiable Information that relates to your use of the Site with that of other users ("Aggregate Information") to determine which areas of the Site are most popular, and how our services are used. By collecting this Aggregate Information and analyzing it, we can use it to improve the Site. We may disclose Aggregate Information in connection with improving the services we offer and facilitating our marketing efforts.

WARNING ABOUT ONLINE DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

None of the information that is collected by this web site is rented, sold, or shared with any 3rd parties in any way, for any purpose.

Third Parties. We do not control the privacy policies of businesses or other third parties that have Web sites linked to the Site.

We assume no responsibility or liability for the actions of such third parties with respect to their use of your information or otherwise. Accordingly, make sure you are aware of and comfortable with the privacy policies of any third-party Web sites you link to. In addition, you should be aware that certain third-party services (for example, the Shopping Cart maintained by PayPal.com) or Web sites (for example, if you click on a link to one of our partner's or affiliate's Web site) that you link to from our Web site each have their own information collection practices and privacy policies.

Disclosure Of Information In Public Areas. If you voluntarily disclose information in a public area of the Site, such as a message board, that information may be collected and used by a third party to send you unsolicited messages, advertisements or for other purposes. We do not control the actions of these third parties in public areas of the Site, so if you disclose information in a public area, you do so at your own risk.

No Absolute Safeguards. Although we will make efforts to safeguard the privacy of your information, transmissions on the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. Accordingly, we assume no responsibility or liability for disclosure of any of your information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access or other causes beyond our reasonable control.
