At Anonymizer, we do more than help you protect your privacy. As the leader in Internet privacy & security solutions, Anonymizer knows the value of information and understands your concerns about privacy. As a result, we believe that you have the right to know how we collect and use your personal information on www.anonymizer.com. Anonymizer values your trust and respects your privacy – and is committed to protecting them.
What customer information does Anonymizer gather and use?
Anonymizer is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, rent, trade or lease this information with third parties other than as disclosed in this policy. When you navigate our Web site, Anonymizer will gather certain information such as your Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, and the date and time of your visit. We may place a cookie on your computer (see discussion of cookies, below), and use this information for our internal marketing purposes, to improve our Web site or our products and services, or to track abuse.
For your protection, all information with respect to an order, including the credit card holder’s name, credit card number, expiration date, security code and billing address, is subject to verification prior to processing any order. This is to assist us in preventing fraud and the unauthorized use of a credit card without the cardholder’s permission. Records of your billing information are kept separately from records of your Internet activities because our billing system and Anonymizer privacy and security services run independently.
Will Anonymizer share my information with other companies or people?
Note to European Customers: The information you provide us will be transferred outside the European Economic Area for the purpose of processing by Anonymizer, Inc., its affiliates and agents. By submitting your information, you agree to that international transfer.
How do You Update your Personal Information?
If your personal information changes you may update it by making the change within the “Account Home” page of your account. If you no longer desire our service or would like personal information removed from your account please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have the option of storing your credit card information within your profile. This is stored on a secure page and you may update this information at any time by logging into your account. We do not use this information for any other purpose other than to bill you for services you have requested.
How Does Anonymizer protect my Personal Information?
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our order form, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer (SSL).
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on our site, you can email us at email@example.com.
From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys on our site. If you participate, we will not request personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and anonymous, and you therefore have a choice whether or not to participate. The requested information typically includes opinions, preferences, and habits concerning shopping and online privacy, as well as demographic information (such as age and region).
We use this information to understand consumer preferences, attitudes, and behavior, and to improve our products. We may cite aggregate survey results in press articles related to online privacy and security.
We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company is prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.
Links to Other Sites
If you click on a link to a third party site, you will leave the anonymizer.com site you are visiting be redirected to the site you selected. Because we cannot control the activities of third parties, we cannot accept responsibility for any use of your personally identifiable information by such third parties, and we cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy practices as Anonymizer.com. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of any other service provider from whom you request services. If you visit a third party website that is reached through a link on the Anonymizer website, you should read that site’s privacy statement before providing any personally identifiable information.
How can I unsubscribe from promotional emails?
You may unsubscribe from receiving Anonymizer email promotions including e-newsletters and special offers by e-mailing a request for removal to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anonymizer is dedicated to continually improving its websites by adding new functionality, products, services and programs. If we decide to change our privacy practices, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the home page, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we change how we use your personally identifiable information, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.
