2. USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT 

When you register on this site, we may sell, share, or rent your personally identifiable information to others, including 4FINIs members, sponsors, affiliates, and partners (the "4FINI Affiliated Parties"). However 4FINI will not provide your personally identifiable information unless you have opted in to receive emails from the 4FINI Affiliated Parties. 4FINI restricts access to your nonpublic personal information to those employees who need to know that information to provide information to you. 4FINI maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information. 

4FINI uses Customer Information to enhance your use of the 4FINI services by processing such information for various purposes, including providing information to you about 4FINIs products and services, formatting and displaying elements of Contact Data and Message Data to you and to those whom you send messages, delivering advertisements and related links, storing your messages, and other purposes relating to offering you 4FINI products and services. 4FINI uses non-identifying and aggregate information to better design the Website and to share with advertisers and TEI-related affiliates and sponsors. 4FINI also may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. 

4FINI may engage a third party to perform functions on 4FINIs behalf, such as sending newsletters, sending requested postal mail and e-mail and SMS communications, analyzing and processing data, and providing customer service. 4FINI requires that these parties agree to use such information in a confidential manner and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. These third parties may have access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions, but 4FINI will not authorize them to use it for other purposes. For more information on third parties please see Section 7 Onward Transfer to Third Parties or click here. 

If 4FINI desires to use Personal Information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy, 4FINI will offer you the opportunity to opt out of such use of your Personal Information for those other purposes.

3. SURVEYS AND CONTESTS 

From time-to-time our Site may request information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and therefore the user has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information may be shared with the contest or survey sponsors and may be used to notify the winners and award prizes. The terms of a contest may provide, among other things that the identities of the contest winners may be made public. Survey information may also be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the Site. We may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests and they may use personally identifiable information for a secondary purpose.

This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Site and other 4FINI owned sites. 

9. SECURITY 

4FINI is committed to protecting the privacy of the Website visitors and customers. The Website uses security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under 4FINIs control. 4FINI stores the information in a database in a secure environment. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, 4FINI has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information 4FINI collects online. 

4FINI limits access to Customer Information to 4FINI personnel who need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. 4FINI has physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the Customer Information under its control. Customer Information that 4FINI collects is stored in a secure manner that is accessible only by authorized 4FINI personnel and is only disclosed under the provisions of this Privacy Policy. 

It should be noted that e mails and other information you send to us is not encrypted and cannot be considered a secure means of transmitting sensitive information. 4FINI will never ask you to submit your financial data such as your credit card account numbers, via e-mail. You should be aware of the limitations of security, authentication, encryption, and privacy measures used in connection with the Internet and that any information you transmit through the Site may be damaged, corrupted, "sniffed" and/or accessed by another person without your permission. 

Regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the ultimate security of any information you transmit. If you have any questions about security on the Site, you can send us an email at think@thinktei.com. 

10. CHILDREN'S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT ("COPPA") 

In addition to our general guidelines stated in this Privacy Policy, 4FINI recognizes the need to provide additional privacy protections for children under the age of 13. The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") requires that we inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information from children under the age of 13. 

OUR SITE IS NOT DIRECTED AT CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13 AND DO NOT KNOWINGLY COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13. CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13 ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO USE SERVICES ON OUR SITE THAT REQUIRE SUBMISSION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION AND SHOULD NOT SUBMIT ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION TO US. A CHILD UNDER THE AGE OF 13 MAY USE THESE SERVICES ONLY IF WE RECEIVE CONSENT FROM A PARENT OR GUARDIAN. 

If 4FINI receives actual knowledge that the site is being used by a child under the age of 13 4FINI will obtain Parental Consent before collecting, using, or disclosing the child's personal information. We obtain parental or guardian consent to collect information from a child under the age of 13 through the following process: 

A parent may email us at think@thinktei.com to provide consent provided the email contains a digital signature, or other digital certificate that uses public key technology. Please put "Parental Consent for Child's Personal Information" in the subject line of the email. 

The collection and use of personal information collected from children will be disclosed and used in the same ways described above in this Policy. 

Our intention is not to disclose your information other than to our own employees and third party contractors who are bound by agreement with us to maintain the confidentiality of such information and who need the information in order for us to use the information as stated in this policy. 

Before allowing a child to use a service of on our Site that might result in the public disclosure of the child's information to third parties on the internet, we require a high level of verification to confirm that the parent has given permission for the child's participation in such services. We may require a parent to provide us with credit card information, speak to a trained telephone operator, or return by postal mail or fax a signed consent form. Parents have the option not to consent to the disclosure of their child's contact information to third parties.
