This policy explains how city-resources.com (hereinafter “the Company” or “We”) collects, uses and disseminates information about individuals.
1. Information Collection.
1.1 Survey, Order Form, Registration Pages. We collect information from individuals when an individual voluntarily completes an order form, a Company survey, or a registration page online or by means of online order forms or registration pages operated by third parties (collectively, a "Survey"). (As used herein, "online" means using the Internet and related technologies.) In the Surveys, the Company or the third party (the "Third Party") may ask an individual to provide various information, which may include his or her name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers, cell phone numbers and carriers, birth date, age, gender, salary range, education, marital status, occupation, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information as may be requested from time to time (together, "Survey Information"). Completing the Surveys is completely voluntary, and individuals are under no obligation to provide Survey Information to the Company or Third Party, but an individual may receive incentives from the Company or a Third Party in exchange for providing Survey Information.
1.2 Third Party List Information. The Company collects information from individuals when an individual provides information to a third party, and the Company subsequently purchases or otherwise acquires the information from the third party (the "Seller"). Such purchased information may include his or her name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers, cell phone numbers and carriers, birth date, age, gender, salary range, education, marital status, occupation, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information as the individual may have provided to the Seller (together, "Third Party List Information"). When acquiring Third Party List Information, the Company seeks assurances from the Seller that the Seller has a right to transfer the Third Party List Information to the Company and that the Seller has a right to provide promotional offers to the individuals whose personal information is included on the list.
1.3 Other Information. The Company may request personal information on other occasions, including (1) when an individual makes a claim for a prize or seeks to redeem an incentive offered by the Company or by a third party; (2) when an individual requests assistance through Company’s customer service department; and (3) when an individual voluntarily subscribes to a Company service or newsletter (together, "Other Information").
1.4 Outside Information. The Company may receive information about individuals from third parties ("Outside Information").
1.5 No Information Collected from Children. The Company does not intentionally collect personal information from children who are younger than age 13. The Company therefore has no such information to disclose to third parties or to use.
