This policy describes the types of information Branson Courier collects from its users and how that information is used. Please read this policy carefully before providing us with any personal information. If you have questions about this policy, please contact us here.
Information we collect.
1. Unregistered users
We encourage you to register with us in order to take advantage of Branson Courier’s many personalization features. However, you may choose not to register and take advantage of any feature of our site where registration is not required.
If you do not register, then the information we collect from you is limited. We log your IP address in order to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Web site and track usage statistics. Your IP address may vary each time you visit, or it may be the same, depending on whether you access our site through an always-on type of Internet connection (e.g., cable modem or DSL), or through a dial-up connection (e.g., AOL or Earthlink). Either way, it would be extremely difficult for us to identify you through your IP address, and we make no attempt to do so. If you reached our site by clicking on a link or advertisement on another site, then we also log that information. This helps us to maximize our Internet exposure, and to understand the interests of our users. All of this information is collected and used only in the aggregate; that is, it is entered into our database, where we can use it to generate overall reports on our visitors, but not reports about individual visitors.
2. Registered users
If you register with us, we will collect personal information from you in addition to the non-personal information described above. That personal information may include your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, travel preferences, user name and password. The information we collect may vary, but we only collect the information that you manually enter into our forms. We may store all or some of that information in a cookie file on your hard drive, so that our system will recognize you each time you visit our site. In that way, we can save your preferences from visit to visit and present you with a customized Web site, without requiring you to log into our site every time you visit. Additionally, authorized Branson Courier personnel may update your registration information to accurately reflect any new information included in communications received from you.
How we use the personal information we collect.
We use the personal information we collect to help both of us! As we mentioned above, registering with us allows you to personalize our Web site so that it is most useful to you. It also allows you to log into our site automatically each time you visit, rather than manually typing your user name and password every time. We may also use this information to periodically contact you with news or important information from Branson Courier or to request your feedback on our site. In addition to these periodic updates, we may email you additional materials, but only if you specifically request them. These might include opt-in newsletters and other materials that you proactively request from Branson Courier.
In addition to these communications, if you have provided an email address, we may use your personal information to send you notifications about special offers or to tell you about opportunities available from our partners. You may opt-out of any or all marketing communications from Branson Courier in any commercial e-mail we send or at any time.
We may also use certain information that you provide in order to present you with advertising that you may find interesting. This benefits both of us. It benefits us because advertising helps pay the bills, and we can charge our advertisers more if they know that their ads will be seen by somebody more likely to find it useful. It benefits you because you see advertising that may actually be interesting to you, rather than annoying.
You can cancel your registration with us by contacting us here, and provide us your user name, email address of record, and notice that you would like your registration removed.. We will send you an e-mail to confirm your request. After we receive confirmation, we will remove your information from our active database, but some information may remain in our archives. We may not be able to remove your information from our partners’ databases, if we have transmitted any information to them.
Disclosure of your personal information.
Branson Courier does not sell or rent any personal information to any third party, other than our partners, as discussed in this policy. We may aggregate personal information from all of our users and provide that information in the aggregate to other parties, including advertisers, for marketing and promotional purposes. However, if we do so, that information will not be in a form that will allow any third party to identify you personally.
We also may share your personal information with third-parties specifically engaged by Branson Courier to provide services to Branson Courier (such as market research firms, marketing services providers and advertising agencies), in which case we will require those parties to agree to use any such personally-identifiable data solely for the purpose of providing the specified services to Branson Courier. As you might expect, Branson Courier must cooperate with legal authorities, and may in some circumstances be required to disclose personally identifiable information in response to requests from law enforcement authorities, or in response to a subpoena or other legal process. It is Branson Courier’s policy to furnish the personal information requested in writing by any licensed attorney in any situation where there is an alleged defamation or slander issue or we reasonably believe that doing so may mitigate our liability, assist us in enforcing our legal rights, or reducing its legal exposure or costs at its sole discretion and without any prior notification. We don’t expect this to happen, but if it does, we will provide only the information required. In other words, we will not simply turn over our database in response to a specific legal requirement or request. We can also turn over information about you if we believe we must in order to prevent a violation of the law. We also may share your information in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, and in the unlikely event of bankruptcy. By accepting this policy you consent to the release of your personal information as described above, in and at the sole discretion of Branson Courier.
How you can review and update your personal information.
You can update the personal information you have provided through the registration process by contacting us here.
Steps we take to protect your personal information.
Branson Courier has implemented security procedures to help protect the personal information stored in our systems. For example, we limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information. We also employ processes (such as password hashing, login auditing, and idle session termination) to protect against unauthorized access to your personal information. But please know that there is no way for us to guarantee the security of your personal information.
3rd Party Advertisers.
Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn’t cause a problem with our site, should you so choose.
This website is a general audience site, and we do not knowingly collect information about children. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 send personal information to us, we will use our best efforts to ensure that information is immediately deleted from our systems. use that information only to respond directly to that child to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving his or her personal information. Should a person whom we know to be under 18 send personal information to us, we will use our best efforts to ensure that the information is used only to directly respond directly to that person to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving his or her personal information.
We reserve the right to change this policy should we deem it advisable to do so. If we make material changes that will affect personal information we have already collected from you, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you of the changes and to give you the opportunity to amend or cancel your registration.
