What Information is Ad Wizard gathering about its visitors and how is it being used?
Every computer connected to the Internet is provided with a domain name (e.g. netnation.net) and an IP Address (e.g. 152.765.14.445). When a visitor requests a page from within the Ad Wizard website, our Web Servers automatically identify and log the HTTP request that is made to our Web Server. This information reveals nothing personal about you. In fact, the only information that we automatically gather and log is as follows:
The IP Address of the Site that may have Referred you.
Your IP Address.
The Web Page that you may have linked to us from, if any.
The pages requested, and time and date of that request.
The Product Identifier for Version and Make of Browser (e.g. Internet Explorer 6.0)
The Operating System platform that you may be running (e.g. Macintosh or Windows)
Search Words or Terms that are passed from a Search Engine (e.g. Google, Yahoo, or Lycos)
There is absolutely nothing special about the information just described, and the practice of collecting this data has been generally standardized by virtually every Web Server on the Internet today.
The purpose for this information is to examine visitor traffic in its aggregate, so that we can ensure maximum compatibility for the various Browsers and Operating Systems on the computers of the users that visit our site.
Protection of Children's Personal Information:
The Ad Wizard and theadwizard.com is a general audience website and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children (those under the age of 13).
What about Cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data that are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser from our website. A cookie cannot read data from your hard disk or read cookie files that may have been created from other sites. The Ad Wizard website utilizes cookies as a means of providing personalization features to our visitors. For example, we utilize cookies to remember settings that you may have made at our website (design information, responses to questions) and to monitor usage trends.
You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser. Typically, by accessing the browser's help feature you can obtain information on how to prevent your browser from accepting all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our website and other websites may be diminished, access may be denied, and some features may not work as intended.
What other information does Ad Wizard request?
We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address, phone number and input for the purposes of delivering the final version of your advertisement or advertising artwork, notifying you of login information, conducting a survey, adding you to our mailing list, or by your request to have someone contact you on a customer service issue or for additional information. Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. We maintain a strict "No Spam" policy that means we do not intend to sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third-party, without your consent. If you give us personal information on another person, such as a spouse or co-worker, we will assume that they gave you their permission to do so.
We retain information on advertisement or advertising artwork designs in progress in password-protected files.
When you use Ad Wizard to access or review design projects, the software may record the date and time that you reviewed the designs.
In addition, Ad Wizard will not send you e-mail that you have not agreed to receive. If you are a member of our Mailing List, you may be contacted with announcements, news, portfolio additions, and new products or services. You have the option of "Unsubscribing" from our Mailing List at any time, thereby disabling any further such e-mail communication from being sent to you. If you wish to have specific communications with a member of the Ad Wizard staff, you will be required to provide specific information that will be routed to the appropriate contact within Ad Wizard.
What information does Ad Wizard collect when I purchase something?
If you purchase something, such as a license for use of a advertisement or advertising artwork, or other products such as stationery, we need to obtain the appropriate information in order to complete the transaction. Depending upon the method of payment that you select and your location, the required information may vary. However, generally speaking we will need:
Billing Address (for Credit Card Orders)
Credit Card Number (for Credit Card Orders)
Expiration Date (for Credit Card Orders)
We use shopping cart features that safeguard this information by using industry standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encrypted servers. SSL encodes the information transferred between you and the server, rendering it unreadable to anyone trying to intercept the information.
Will The Ad Wizard disclose the information collected to Third Parties?
Ad Wizard will disclose your personal information or any of its log file information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such actions are necessary to:
Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on InPrint Media Sales Ltd., a British Columbia, Canada corporation doing business as The Ad Wizard. Protect and defend the rights or property of The Ad Wizard, or visitors of The Ad Wizard. Identify persons who may be violating the law, the legal notice, or the rights of third parties.
Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities. We may employ third parties to perform acts on our behalf, for example to fill orders, send mail, process credit card payments, handle questions and customer service, etc. We may also need to provide your personal information to these parties. We will give them only the information needed to perform their duties, and will prohibit them from using the information for any other purpose.
Miscellaneous information that is not solely personal to you or that is anonymous may be used to improve our website and service, to monitor usage, and for general business purposes. We may disclose this information to third parties for business reasons, including allowing publishers to learn which information is of interest to their readers, allowing advertisers to learn usage habits or characteristics of the users, and to allow potential investors to understand our business.
The Ad Wizard uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. For example, we store the personal information provided to us in computer servers with limited access and locate them in controlled facilities. However, no data sent over the internet or wireless networks can be sure of security. Thus, despite our efforts, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you send to us, and thus you do so at your own risk.
