Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide
this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you
can make about the way your information is collected and used.
The Information We Collect
This notice applies to all information collected on the Everyone.net web site,
or submitted to Everyone.net at any time through any web pages which we host.
Personally Identifiable Information - When visiting Everyone.net's or any Partner's
web site and signing up for or using Everyone.net services through a web page
hosted by us, you may choose to supply Everyone.net with information that identifies
you personally. For end-users, this information may include your name
and contact information, gender, age group, occupation & industry, and user
comments and opt-in preference; we intend to collect shipping and billing information,
which may, in the future, include credit card numbers, and other payment types
of information. We also intend to collect behavior patterns, which may include
recording frequency of use of our services, which and when items were purchased,
at which site and page, and other information related to behavior patterns.
We collect prospect information, which may include name, and contact
information of individual(s) you think would be interested in our services.
For Partners, the information we collect may include your name and contact
information, your site's category, your web site information (URL, visitors
per day, description of services offered at web site), and user comments.
When Partners add our services to their web site, end-user information collected
is stored in our database. Thus, our database has information collected on our
site as well as on Partner sites. As stated in the Partner and End-User agreements,
Everyone.net and each Partner both have access to the information specific to
their site only; individual Partners do not have the ability to access information
about end-users from other Partner sites. The information Everyone.net collects
will be used as stated below. As for each of our Partners, they will
determine what they will do with the information collected, while each have
Agreement and End-User Agreement.
Collection of Personal Information from Children under Thirteen
Everyone.net does not allow Partners to collect information from children under
the age of thirteen (13), unless Everyone.net makes a special exception because
the Partner Site complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
(COPPA) or the COPPA rule issued by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). A copy
of the COPPA rule issued by the FTC is available at http://www.ftc.gov/os/1999/9910/64fr59888.pdf
In order to comply with COPPA and the COPPA
rule issued by the FTC, the Partner must obtain consent from the parents, or
legal guardians, of children under the age of 13 in order to keep or use any
personally identifiable information collected from the child and allow parents,
and legal guardians, to change or revoke consent at any time. Any personal information
The Way We Use Information
We use the information you provide about yourself or others to complete the
transaction for which it is intended. This may include administering a service
such as email, search, community, e-commerce, etc., completing an order, shipping
a product, or contacting you if you have indicated your permission to do so.
We do not share this information with outside parties without your permission
except to the extent that is necessary to administer the services we offer our
Partners and end-users.
When we receive email addresses, through support, or get messages posted on
our support forum, we use the return email addresses to reply with the information
requested. For email addresses we receive through our "Keep Me Posted" program
on our web site, we email service announcements and updates as requested. Support
and "Keep Me Posted" addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not
shared with outside parties.
For end-users, when supplying name and contact information, shipping
information, prospect information, and user comments to Everyone.net, we will
use it to answer your questions, ship your products, or provide you with the
requested services. When supplying name and contact information to Everyone.net,
you can indicate your preference whether you would like to be contacted to receive
information and updates about Everyone.net's or Partner's services, or special
offers from other companies through the Everyone.Benefits!™ program.
In addition, when indicating your age, gender, occupation & industry, and
contact information, we will extract non-identifying and aggregate information
to better design our web site and services, and to share the aggregate data
with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals
visited a certain area on our web site, or that Y number of men and Z number
of women use a certain service. Everyone.net services may also utilize personally
identifiable end-user information to provide targeted content and commerce opportunities
to end-users based on their demographic and behavioral information. Also, we
may use this information to gather aggregate behavioral patterns such as frequency
of use of our services, interests, types of items purchased, how many items
purchased, etc., to administer and improve our services accordingly.
For Partners, when supplying name and contact information, site's category,
web site information (such as URL address, visitors per day, description of
services offered at web site), and user comments, we will put this into aggregate
information so we can categorize and understand the types of web sites that
use our services, and also to administer our services. Also, we will use this
information to respond to your requests as well as to contact you for general
business purposes. For example, if you forget your account information, we will
use this information to verify you are the account holder.
For prospects, when getting information about you, we will use the information
for which it was intended or submitted. You have the right to access and correct
information submitted about you, receive the same courteous and professional
treatment and services as our end-users and Partners.
Finally, for end-users, Partners, and prospects, we never use
or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways
unrelated to the ones described above, without also providing you an opportunity
to opt-out, or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Conditional Access Area-Control Center
Everyone.net maintains an area called the "Control Center" which is a tool that
allows you to administer the services you set up through Everyone.net. To access
the Control Center, you will need to enter an account ID and password. In order
to sign up for an account, you will need to provide your name and contact information,
your site's category, your web site information (URL, visitors per day, description

Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate
use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and
managerial procedures reasonably designed to safeguard and secure the information
we collect online.
The Control Center and end-user accounts have SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption
to secure personal identification. In addition, personnel who have access to
our database are trained to maintain and secure all information.
Everyone.net has teamed up with Above.net to provide a faster Internet connection
from our servers. As a result, our servers are now co-located at Above.net's
facility. Above.net does not have the ability to access our servers or any information
stored in our servers. Also, our servers are secured in a locked and alarmed
facility to protect all our equipment and data.
How You Can Access or Correct Your Information
For Partners, you can access all your personally identifiable information
that Everyone.net collects online and maintains by logging into your password-protected
(SSL encrypted) account at http://www.everyone.net
and selecting to update your "Profile." For end-users, you can access
your information by logging into your password-protected end-user account and
selecting to update your "Personal Info." We use this procedure to better safeguard
your information. You can also correct factual errors in your personally identifiable
information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.
If you do not currently have an account with us, and have submitted information
on our site, you can access and correct the information that we maintain by
contacting us. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable
steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
