Information We Collect and How It Is Used
We collect the following information from you: (a) information you explicitly provide to us by completing any registration or account form(s) on or through this site, including your name, email, and mailing addresses, and (b) information that is automatically collected by us when you visit this site. We use this information for our own internal purposes, which are more fully explained below. We do not share your information with any other parties, unless it is necessary to do so in order to comply with state and federal laws, or to fulfill our obligations arising from this site.
If you subscribe to our mailings, email alerts, or blogs, we ask for contact information (such as your name, email address, and demographic information, if and when requested). We use this information in the same manner as we use your collected information during the account process and otherwise on this site.
Information You Explicitly Provide
Account Information. Visitors to this site may be required to fill out a contact us, profile, or registration form, which requires them to provide certain information about themselves. Through this process, we collect information (like your email address). The information we collect is used for our own internal tracking purposes — identification and service selection, evaluation, and in support of this site. We also use this contact information from time to time to send you mailings, email alerts, and other materials about The Fine Line LLC, including information related to this site and service updates. We also retain certain portions of your contact information for our internal records.
If you wish, when you create an account or submit your information to this site, you may elect not to receive future email alerts or other materials. In addition, at any time after creating an account with us or submitting your information to this site you may ask us not to send you any further information about The Fine Line LLC or this site. See “How to Opt Out” below.
Information We Automatically Collect
IP Addresses. When you connect to the Internet, your computer has a unique identification code called a “Mac Address.” You also have an “IP address.” Depending on the way you access the Internet, you may also have a different IP address each time you connect, or your IP address may be the same each time, or it may not be a unique IP address — you may share the IP address with others using your router. We log the IP addresses of users who visit this site. We use your IP address for system administration purposes, such as to help diagnose problems with our server. In addition, we may use your IP address to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information about you and the rest of the users who visit this site.
Disclosure and Use of Collected Information
Generally. We may provide aggregate information about visitors to this site and our customers, sales, site traffic patterns, and related site information to our affiliates, including without limitation our parent, subsidiaries, predecessors, successors, and assigns, or any entity merged into or with The Fine Line LLC (if any).
Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information. We may disclose any and all information when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or if disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights.
Use of Information. We use collected information for many purposes, including, but not limited to, administering and improving this site, diagnosing problems with our systems, developing new ideas and services, and communicating with you. We do not share your personally identifiable information (including any information you provide to us or information gathered through the account registration process such as name or email address) with third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent, other than to process any requests or other matters related to this site. We do share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage date, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on this site.
