Online merchants and others who participate in reKommend.com services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude toward consumer privacy.

3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
reKommend.com, LLC, collects certain information from and about its users in three ways: (A) directly from our web server logs, (B) from the user, and (C) with cookies.
A. Web Server Logs
When you visit our Website, we may track non personally identifiable information to administer the Website and analyse its usage. Examples of information we may track include:
o Your Internet protocol address.
o The kind of browser or computer you use.
o The web page from which you linked to our Website.
o The pages you view on the Website.
o The number of links you click within the Website.
o The state or country from which you access the Website.
o The date and time of your visit.
o The name of your Internet service provider.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalise a web page or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information, as well as providing personalised functionality.
reKommend.com, LLC, reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our Website unless there is an overriding customer value (such as merging a site that relies on third-party cookies into reKommend.com).
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings, then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality of our Website.
C. Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
Visitors to our Website must register to use our services. When you register, we will request some personal information, such as name, birth date, gender, and geographic location. If you are purchasing a service, we will request financial information. Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the services you purchased. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider. For other types of registrations, we will ask for the relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you, such as if necessary to provide you with online technical support and troubleshooting.
We will not intentionally disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission, except to the extent necessary including:
To fulfill your requests for services,
To protect ourselves from liability,
To respond to legal process or comply with law,
In connection with a merger, acquisition, or liquidation of the company,
To any independent contractor employed by us to work for our business.
To protect the personal safety or property of our users or ourselves.
While reKommend.com takes reasonable measures to keep PII confidential and to ensure the integrity and security of our network and Website, we cannot guarantee that unauthorised access will never occur.
4. USE OF WEB BEACONS OR GIF FILES
reKommend.com web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons - sometimes also called single-pixel gifs - that allow reKommend.com to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. reKommend.com may include web beacons in promotional email messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
Some of these web beacons may be placed by third-party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognise your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our Website and how you use the Website. reKommend.com prohibits web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.
5. ACCESSING WEB ACCOUNT INFORMATION
We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information by sending an email to: privacy 'at' rekommend.com.
6. CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT
reKommend.com, LLC, has the right to update this Privacy Statement. When we do, we will also revise the "updated" date at the top of this privacy page. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Statement and any updates.
