Sandstorm Consulting Services has a firm commitment to privacy. We take your privacy concerns
seriously and want to make every effort to address those concerns. That is why we have adopted the following policy on information-gathering and disclosure.
Your Personal Information
From time to time, we will ask for information that personally identifies
you, as in our user surveys or registration for Sandstorm Consulting Services services such as e-mail, forums, or promotions. We use this information to operate our services, provide you with the highest quality services and offer you opportunities we think will be of interest.
We will not disclose any personal information without your advance permission except when we believe
the law requires us to do so or the disclosure is necessary to protect the rights or property of Sandstorm Consulting Services.
In order to describe our services to prospective partners, advertisers and others, we may disclose user information but only in a form that does not identify individual users. For example, we might disclose that a certain percentage of our users are
male or within a certain age range.
Occasionally, we may disclose personal information in other circumstances, but we will only do this if we have explained at the time we collect the information the purpose for which it will be disclosed.
Sandstorm Consulting Services is particularly concerned with providing a safe online environment for children. Sandstorm Consulting Services strongly recommends parental supervision when a child uses the Internet, and particularly when a child enters a forum or uses e-mail.
We also encourage parents
to instruct their children not to give out personal information in these areas. A number of commercial products are available to help limit your child's access to material on the Internet that you may consider harmful or inappropriate.
Other services and information providers accessible through our web sites have their own policies about children's privacy and you should contact
them directly for their policies.
Sandstorm Consulting Services hosts online stores that sell a variety of goods and services, these stores may collect information from you such as your name, credit card number and other contact
information. Sandstorm Consulting Services does not collect, use or disclose this information nor does it own or control the stores or have responsibility for transactions made by those merchants. If you would like to know more about the information collected when you participate in electronic commerce on or through this site, please contact the store merchants directly.
A "cookie" is a small data text file that is placed in your browser and allows us to recognize you each time you visit the site. Cookies themselves do not contain any personal information. Instead, they allow us to see which parts of our site you have used so that we can
better serve you when you return to our site. Cookies may be used to provide you with information and special opportunities tailored to your interests.
Direct Mailings and "Opting Out"
We may send you information about various products and services and
mailing lists. If you don't want to receive this information, you can "opt out" by sending us an e-mail and requesting that you not receive any of these offers.
Remember The Risks Whenever You Use The Internet
You should know that when you voluntarily
disclose personal information on any web site (for example, in forums or the guest book), that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people. We cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to our partners and other Internet sites or services that may be accessible through our sites. They will have separate data and privacy practices independent of us, and therefore we disclaim
any responsibility or liability for their policies or actions. Please contact those vendors and others directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies.
