used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders.
If we have trouble processing an order, the information
is used to contact the user.

includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type,
internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform
type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends,
administer the site, track user’s movement in the
aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for
aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally

communications are not promotional in nature.

with the users wishes.

DO NOT Share Personal Information with Third Parties
In the event StraightForward Media goes through a business
transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another
company, or selling a portion of its assets, users’
personal information will, in most instances, be part of
the assets transferred.
Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’
of having their information used for purposes not directly
related to our site at the point where we ask for information.
For example, our order form has an ‘opt-out’
mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don’t
want any marketing material, can keep their email address
off of our lists.
who no longer wish to receive our newsletters and promotional
communications may opt-out of receiving these communications
by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the email
or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
