Personal Information andiland.com Collects and How It Is Used
Introduction. andiland.com collects information in different ways from Visitors and Members who access the various parts of our Services and the network of Web sites accessible through our Service. We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Services and, generally, do not share this information with third parties. However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below.
Registration . Members are asked to
provide certain personal information when they sign up for our Services
including name, address, telephone number, billing information (such as a
credit card number), and the type of personal computer being used to access the
Services. The personal information collected from Members during the
registration process is used to manage each Member's account (such as for
billing purposes). This information is not shared with third parties, unless
specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances. However, in
instances where andiland.com and a partner jointly promote the Services,
andiland.com may provide the partner certain personal information, such as the
name, address, and username of persons who subscribed to the Services as a
result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the
partner to assess the results of the promotion. In this instance, personal
information may not be used by the partner for any other purpose. andiland.com
may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from personal
information Members provide during registration (such as the total number, but
not the names, of Members). As explained in more detail below, we may use this
aggregated and non-identifying information to sell advertisements that appear
on the Services.
andiland.com Partners and
andiland.com products and services are offered to Visitors and Members in
conjunction with a non-affiliated partner. To provide Visitors and Members some
of these products and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain
personal information. In these instances, you will be notified before any such
data is collected or transferred and may decide not to use that particular
service or feature.
Online Shopping. At some Web sites, you can purchase products and services or register to receive materials, such as a services or new product and service updates. In many cases, you may be asked to provide contact information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information.

that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the
extent necessary to complete that order.
displays our online advertisements. We share aggregated and non-identifying
information about our Visitors and Members collected through the registration
process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these
advertisers. Additionally, in some instances, we use this aggregated and
non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements. For instance,
an advertiser tells us the audience they want to reach and provides us an
advertisement tailored to the audience. Based upon the aggregated and
non-identifying information we have collected, we may then display the
advertisement to the intended audience. andiland.com does not share personal
information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers.
Responses to Email
When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to andiland.com, the return email
address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. andiland.com does not
use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the
return email address with any third party.
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We
encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us
with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we
offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses
will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third
party. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.
We take the information we receive from
individuals responding to our Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it
with the responses of other andiland.com customers to create broader, generic
responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies,
education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We
then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to
you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated, non-personally
identifying information may be shared with third parties.
Special Cases. It is andiland.com's
policy not to use or share the personal information about Visitors or Members
in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an
opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. However,
andiland.com may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members, or
information regarding your use of the Services or Web sites accessible through
our Services, for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is
reasonable to do so, including: to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic
Communications Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for
such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify,
contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our user
policies; to operate the Services properly; or to protect andiland.com and our
Advertisers and partners may also use their own
cookies. We do not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaim
responsibility for information collected through them.

laws where applicable.

information you may disclose in public areas of our Web sites or the Internet,
