INFORMATION AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED

1. Non-Identifiable Information

As is typical with many sites, the Web Site server automatically collects certain non-identifiable information regarding Web Site users, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access the Web Site, the Internet address of the site from which you linked directly to the Web Site, the operating system you are using, the sections of the Web Site you visit, the Web Site pages read and images viewed, and any content you post to or download from the Web Site. We use this non-identifiable information for Web Site and system administration purposes and to improve the Web Site. We may disclose such non-identifiable information to others and archive it for future use.

Cookies - The Web Site uses "cookies," a technology that installs information on a Web Site user's computer to permit the Web Site to recognize future visits by that computer. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the Web Site. For example, we use the information provided through cookies to recognize you as a previous user of the Web Site, to offer personalized Web page content and information for your use, to track your activity at the Web Site, to prepopulate online forms with your personal information to respond to your needs, and to otherwise facilitate your Web Site experience.

Advertisements displayed on the Web Site may also contain cookies or other technologies. Those advertisements may be provided by third party advertising companies, and we do not have any control over, or any responsibility or liability for, the cookies or other technologies used in the advertisements or for the use and disclosure of information collected through advertisement cookies.

You may choose to decline "cookies" if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your use of the Web Site and your ability to access certain features of the Web Site.



PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU SPECIFICALLY PROVIDE

1. Your Personal Information - When registering for one or more of our services, you may be asked to provide certain personal information (such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone number, and credit card information) for purposes such as facilitating communications with you, applying for access to certain special features or areas of the Web Site, or carrying out transactions. It is always your choice whether or not to provide personal information. If you choose not to provide requested personal information, you may not be able to access certain features of the Web Site. Additionally, if you contact us, we may keep a record of your correspondence.

(i) Sweepstakes and Contests - If and when we sponsor sweepstakes, contests or other promotions, or third parties sponsor such promotions in conjunction with us, either we or the third party may post relevant privacy information in the official rules and/or registration area for the promotion. If we post such additional privacy information, to the extent it conflicts with this Privacy Policy, it will govern that particular promotion.

(ii) Purchases - If you purchase products or services on the Web Site, we or our service providers may collect additional personal or other information from you, such as your address, phone number, payment information or shipping information. Such information will be released to third parties as necessary to complete the transaction or to otherwise fulfill your order. For example, credit card transactions are handled by a third-party service provider, which requires access to the credit card number and other personal information to verify the credit card number and process transactions.


2. Our Use of Your Personal Information - We may use your personal information to contact and correspond with you, to respond to your inquiries, to process transactions and charge for services, to facilitate and enhance your use of the Web Site and as otherwise permitted by law. We may develop a confidential personal profile for you, which we use to provide the very best service to you. We may also disclose information if you have given us permission to do so, for example by voluntarily entering a contest or making a purchase on the Web Site, where we provide the information required to register for the contest, or to ship your purchases, to the appropriate third-party service provider. We may share your personal information with our contractors, consultants, or professional advisors to the extent necessary for them to perform services on our behalf and subject to reasonable confidentiality obligations. We may also send to you, from time to time, email or other communications containing information about us or other matters (including third-party products or services) we believe will interest you. At any time you may ask us to stop sending you email and other information by contacting CVSphoto.com Customer Service. Also, each unsolicited email we send will tell you how to decline further email. Please note that, from time to time, we may e-mail our users important information regarding the Web Site and/or their accounts; our users may not opt out of receiving such information.

3. Disclosure of Your Personal Information - It is our general policy to not voluntarily disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent, except for disclosures required or permitted by law or reasonably necessary to protect our interests. However, due to the nature of the Internet, Internet technologies, and the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that your personal information will not be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy.

Recipient organizations may use your personal information to provide you with email or other information about their products and services and other matters. We may use tracking information to create aggregate reports on user demographics, Web Site traffic patterns, and purchasing patterns, and then provide these reports to our advertisers and partners, enabling them to better target their advertisements to our users. None of the tracking information we provide them can be connected to the identities or other personal information of individual users. We also may link tracking information with personal information. Once we make such a link, all of the linked information is treated as personal information. We may use such information to provide you with an enhanced or customized experience. If in any instance we intend to use or disclose any personal information collected from users in a manner that would otherwise conflict with the terms of this Privacy Policy, we will provide additional privacy information at such instance, which will govern any information so collected.

(iii) Law Enforcement and Legal Disclosure - We may disclose your personal information to a government institution that has asserted its lawful authority to obtain the information or where we have reasonable grounds to believe the information could be useful in the investigation of unlawful activity, or to comply with a subpoena or warrant or an order made by a court, person or body with jurisdiction to compel the production of information, or to comply with court rules regarding the production of records and information, or to our legal counsel.
