Information may be collected from you in one of two ways: we may collect information automatically when you browse the site, or you may voluntarily disclose the information to us in order to use the service.
Non-individually identifiable information
We may automatically collect certain non-individually identifiable information in order to manage the operations of this site. This information may include such technical data as the URL of the site which referred you to our website, your IP address, the browser you are using and the operating system you are using.
Manhattan Profiles may use “cookies” – a small file placed on your computer – or similar technologies to enhance your use of the site. These cookies may allow you to save login information so that you may use our site without having to enter screen names and/or passwords every time you view the site. These cookies will not collect any personal information about you, and you may disable them using a feature of your web browser if you choose. Manhattan Profiles lets other companies that show advertisements on some of our pages use their cookies and similar technologies on your computer. Other companies’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to Manhattan Profiles’s cookies.
Personally identifiable information
We do not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily submit such information to us when signing up for our service. The type of information that may be requested includes (but may not be limited to) your name, age, personal and/or family income,
gender, work address, home address, e-mail address, telephone number and fax number. In addition, for you to take part in purchasing a Manhattan Profiles service or product, or other Manhattan Profiles programs, Manhattan Profiles may need to collect financial information from you such as account or credit card information in order to bill you. Additionally, there may be several services offered to Manhattan Profiles users for additional fees. Manhattan Profiles may need to collect contact information such as name and address, financial information (such as credit card information) and information about the transactions in order to bill you for these services.
Please note that individuals under the age of thirteen are not permitted to use Manhattan Profiles’s services, and we will not knowingly collect or retain information from those under the age of thirteen. If we discover that an individual under the age of thirteen has provided information to us, we will cancel that person’s account and delete that information.
Use of Information
We recognize the importance of your privacy. Therefore, in general, we will only use the information you provide to us for the purpose for which such information was provided. Your information will be used internally by Manhattan Profiles, its employees, subcontractors and agents to create
an account and store information about our users. Some information may be shared with participants of the Manhattan Profiles programs to facilitate communication among participants. We may also use this information to deliver information about our company to you.
Your financial information will be utilized solely for the purpose of billing you for the services you sign up for, or other programs and will be disclosed only to valid financial institutions and credit card companies for these purposes.
Manhattan Profiles may display targeted advertisements based upon personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted advertisements meet the specific criteria being targeted. Although Manhattan Profiles does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with, view or click on a targeted advertisement, by doing so you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the criteria being targeted by the advertisement.
This information may be transferred to another company as a result of a change in ownership of Manhattan Profiles.
Non-individually identifiable information which is gathered may be used for site administration purposes.
