Privacy Policy

This privacy policy ("Policy") discloses the data collection and use practices of Consumer Software International, LLC, for the AboutMyPC.net Web site (the "Web Site") and all associated AboutMyPC.net products and services (the "AboutMyPC.net Services").

AboutMyPC.net will not directly inform you of any changes to the privacy policy which involve use of your personal information. If at anytime you are dissatisfied with our service to you or are in disagreement with our terms and conditions or privacy policy, you reserve the option to Opt-out of our website and future communication.

What Information We Collect/How We Use It.

We store and use the information you give us in accordance with the terms of this Policy. Our registration form (or registration information you provide our marketing partners if you joined AboutMyPC.net though one of our partners) requests that you provide certain contact and profile information. That information includes but may not be limited to: name, address, email address, phone number, gender and birth date.

In addition, we might receive information about you from outside sources and add it to your AboutMyPC.net membership information. We do this to improve personalization of our services (for example, providing better newsletter content, advertising or special offers that we think will interest you).

We also may collect information such as the identification of the server your computer is logged onto and whether you opened an AboutMyPC.net email delivered to you. We also may compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending identical messages to our members. You can add and modify the information you have provided by sending an email to with your requested changes.

When you submit personal information, it is kept in a secure database to ensure that is not subject to any unauthorized data usage.

We use all this information in five ways:

  • to provide you with personalized information via electronic delivery, telemarketing and/or direct mail. These may include personalized offers from 3rd party sources.
  • to send you targeted advertising via electronic delivery and/or direct mail;
  • to contact you for feedback and surveys via electronic delivery and/or direct mail;
  • to send you general and administrative information about AboutMyPC.net via electronic delivery and/or direct mail; and
  • to provide your contact information to AboutMyPC.net marketing partners whose offer(s) you have selected to receive in order for them to send you special offers via electronic delivery, telemarketing and direct mail.

Use of Personal Information

We may share non-personal, summary information regarding its customers with partners or other third parties. However, any individual customer's information provided for partners or third parties under contract with Consumer Software International, LLC, shall be used only to perform or complete a necessary transaction or function related to the customer's purchase. These transactions or functions shall be in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy Statement. In some cases, Consumer Software International, LLC, may use a visitor's personal information to understand overall patterns for web site usage, to contact the user for clarification on inaccurate information, or to follow up on a customer service issue.

Agents

We employ other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include sending direct and electronic mail, removing duplicate information from customer lists, analyzing data, and providing marketing analysis. These agents have access to member personal information as needed to perform their functions for AboutMyPC.net.
