EARTHWORX is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the EARTHWORX site and governs data collection and usage. By using the EARTHWORX site, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information

EARTHWORX collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number. EARTHWORX also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by EARTHWORX. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by EARTHWORX for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the EARTHWORX site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through EARTHWORX public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: EARTHWORX does not read any of your private online communications.

EARTHWORX encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from EARTHWORX so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. EARTHWORX is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the EARTHWORX and EARTHWORX family of Web sites.

Use of your Personal Information

EARTHWORX collects and uses your personal information to operate the EARTHWORX Web site and deliver the services you have requested. EARTHWORX also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from EARTHWORX and its affiliates. EARTHWORX may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

EARTHWORX does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. EARTHWORX may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, EARTHWORX may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to EARTHWORX, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

EARTHWORX does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

EARTHWORX keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within EARTHWORX, in order to determine what EARTHWORX services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within EARTHWORX to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

EARTHWORX Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on EARTHWORX or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of EARTHWORX; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of EARTHWORX, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The EARTHWORX Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize EARTHWORX pages, or register with EARTHWORX site or services, a cookie helps EARTHWORX to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same EARTHWORX Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the EARTHWORX features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the EARTHWORX services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

EARTHWORX secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. EARTHWORX secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

EARTHWORX will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. EARTHWORX encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how EARTHWORX is protecting your information.
