may change from time to time, so please check back periodically.
only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from
you. We encourage you to ask questions and to be very cautious before
you disclose your personal information to others.
- What information does Apply4Admissions.com collect from you?
In order to better provide you with numerous products and services, Apply4Admissions.com collects two types of information
about its visitors: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and
customized experience while using our site.
Personally Identifiable Information
This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. Personal information is
requested when you order a product or service, register for a Gift List, enter contests or
sweepstakes, fill out surveys, and send us feedback. This information might include your name,
billing address, shipping address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card or other payment
information, and product details. With this information, Apply4Admissions.com can fill your orders and better
provide you with personalized services.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain
information about you based upon where you shop on our site in several ways. This information
is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include
the Web site's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to,
what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address
of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a
computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as
the World Wide Web. Networks like the web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the
IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically
assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and
identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the
Internet, browse and shop.
- Where do we collect information from you and how do we use it?
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide Apply4Admissions.com's visitors with a superior
customized online experience. We use the customer contact information to fill orders, contact purchasers
to inform them of their order status, to send promotional information, to enhance the operation of our
site and administer our systems.
Limited demographic data is also collected at our site from our third party advertising server,
who provides us with the zip code and area code associated with a visitor's server, along with
pages viewed on our site. We review the actions of the Apply4Admissions.com visitors on an aggregate basis
to determine customers' preferences. Apply4Admissions.com does research on our visitors' demographics, interests,
and pages viewed based on the information provided to us during ordering, a promotion, from our
server log files, from contests, drawings or surveys. We will use this data to tailor the visitor's
experience at our site, to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze
site use, to improve our product offerings, and to customize our Site's content, layout, and services.
We receive summary, but not individual, reports from our third party ad server, which tells us
how many ads were presented and clicked upon.
We gather information in the following ways:
We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to gather broad demographic
information, to enable ads to be served on our site, to report Non-Personally Identifiable Information
to our advertisers, and to monitor the level of activity on our site. We collect information from
visitors to our site regarding the URLs they came from, their IP addresses, domain types (e.g. .com
or .org), the browser type used to come to the site, the country, state and telephone area code where
their servers are located, the pages of our site that visitors viewed during their visit, and any
search terms entered on our site.
When you order from us, we collect personally identifiable information from you. If you order one
of our products or services, we will collect and maintain your name, e-mail address, billing address,
shipping address, telephone number, product selections, credit card or other payment information,
order number, referring URL, IP address and a password. We collect this, and other information,
as disclosed in this Policy, in order to fill your order, to communicate with you about your order
and to send you promotional materials. Before confirming your order, you will have the opportunity
to review the product order form and make changes and additions to the information it contains and
these changes will be automatically kept for future use.
If you decide to create a Gift List through our site, you will create an
eAccount, where we
will collect and use your name, e-mail address, credit card or other payment information,
billing and shipping address, phone number, password and product preferences. This information
search for your Gift List using your e-mail address unless you choose not to make your Gift List
searchable. Those who have access to your Gift List will be able to see your name, e-mail address,
city, state, and may have access to other personal information and product information that you
have entered into the Gift List. If others place orders for items on your Gift List, they may
have access to your address. We will use the product preferences that you include in your Gift
List to inform you about offers that may be of interest to you. If you provide us with the e-mail
addresses of your family and friends, we will use their e-mail addresses to send them your Gift
List if you instruct us to. With your permission, we will send them the Gift List using your
e-mail address. We will not use the e-mail addresses of your family and friends for any other purpose.
If you purchase a gift certificate from our site, you will give us the recipient's name and e-mail
address if you wish to send the certificate by e-mail. If you wish to send a certificate by
regular mail, you will give us the name, mailing information and phone number for the recipient.
The recipient information you give us will only be used to send the gift certificate and for no
Online Surveys and Polling
In order to improve our services to you, we ask some of our customers to voluntarily complete
surveys, which may be collected by an independent third party. Individual survey answers are
confidential, although Non-Personally Identifiable Information is collected and disclosed to
third parties. If you do not wish to participate in a survey, simply decline to participate
Contests and Sweepstakes
When you enter a contest or other promotion, we may ask you for contact information such
as your name, address and e-mail address in order to administer the contest, to send you
promotional e-mails, notify winners and make the winners' list publicly available pursuant
to certain states' laws. Your consent to such promotional use and disclosure of this
information is a condition of your participation. As a condition of receiving any prize,
you will be required to submit an Affidavit of Eligibility, for us to ensure that you are
eligible to receive the prize according to the Contest Rules.
Newsletters & Promotional E-mails

correspondence or comments. If you report a problem with our site, we may collect
such information in a file specific to you. If you contact us through our feedback

them with your order information.
Our warranty programs are administered by third party warranty companies.

e-mail address, warranty purchased and product purchased to the warranty company.
Our Affiliate Program (Affiliate Connection) is administered by a third party,

by this Policy.
In order to keep our prices low, we display advertisements. By knowing a little
about you, Apply4Admissions.com will be able to deliver more relevant advertisements and content
to you in the form of targeted banners and promotions. For example, advertisers
give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience they want to reach (e.g.,
buyers of Palm Pilots). Apply4Admissions.com takes the advertisement and includes it in a
Apply4Admissions.com e-mail to prior customers meeting that criteria. We may also have our
third-party advertising server display ads linked to certain search terms that you
have entered, or to certain pages that you are viewing. In this process, advertisers
never have access to individual account information; only Apply4Admissions.com has access to
individual's accounts. Additionally, Apply4Admissions.com may share aggregated data with advertisers.
We also track customers' traffic patterns throughout their online session, including
which pages a customer views while using the site. This information is ultimately
stored in the form of store categories, and, in some cases, specific URLs. We use
your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers, software, to administer our
site and to gather demographic information.
We may share aggregated statistics about pages viewed on our site, sales and other
shopping information with third parties.
