  • Electronic newsletters policy: If we offer a free electronic newsletter to our Visitors, StartImportExport.com will only gather the email addresses of visitors who
    voluntarily subscribe. Visitors may remove themselves from thw mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that
    points Visitors to the subscription management page.
  • Polling: We may offer interactive polls to Visitors so they can easily share their opinions with other Visitors and see what our audience
    thinks about. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular visitor.
    StartImportExport.com may use a system to "tag" Visitors after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question.
    This tag is not correlated with information about individual Visitors.
  • Surveys: StartImportExport.com may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the
    aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this
    information about specific individuals with any third party.
  • Children: Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally
    identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
  • Usage tracking:
    StartImportExport.com tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our site. However, we do not correlate this information with
    data about individual Visitors. StartImportExport.com does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser
    type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
    StartImportExport.com sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that Visitors enter in our Search function, but this tracking is
    never associated with individual Visitors. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites Visitors like and don't
    like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual Visitors read, but rather how well each page performs overall.
    This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
  • Cookies:
    We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal
    Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly
    provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data
    off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. StartImportExport.com uses cookies to track user traffic patterns
    as described above. Our advertising system delivers a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates.

    StartImportExport.com uses any information voluntarily given by our Visitors to enhance their experience in our site,
    whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the
    interests of our Visitors.

    As stated above, we may use information that Visitors voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable
    Visitors to participate in polls, surveys, etc. We may send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule and occasionally
    send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. StartImportExport.com
    never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.

    When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites Visitors like and don't like based on traffic to those
    areas. We do not track what individual Visitors read or see, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue
    to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our
    Visitors. But we don't track which terms a particular user enters.

    StartImportExport.com creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors and partners.
    This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively, and allows our Visitors to receive advertisements that are pertinent
    to their needs. Because we don't track the usage patterns of individual Visitors, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that
    a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable
    law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our Visitors or the public.

  • Sharing of the information: StartImportExport.com uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better
    understand our audience's demographics. This is essential to keeping our service free. We will not share information about
    individual Visitors with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal
    safety of our Visitors or the public.

    Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have
    access to the information provided by our customers.
  • Opt-Out policy: We give Visitors options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
    • Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.
    • Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our Visitors
