Why us?

Contact Customer Support

Basically, we don't use your information for any purpose other than to make sure the product you ordered gets to you. Pretty simple.

While we respect lawyers, it turns out they have a gift for gab. So, to say the same thing we just said in a way that makes lawyers happy, we provide the detritus below.

Our Privacy Policy is designed to assist you (businesses, government agencies, consumers, and the public) to:

  • Understand how we collect and use the information you provide to us.
  • Make informed decisions when using our Website.
  • Understand that we respect your privacy and don't abuse your trust.

What Information Do We Collect?

When visiting the our Website, you may provide us with two types of information:

  1. Personal information you voluntarily choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis.
  2. Website use information gathered on a collective basis as you and others browse our Website.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?

Generally, we use customer information for purposes of managing and expanding our business activities, providing customer service, and making available products to our customers and prospective customers.

We do not put you on a mailing list or start sending you spam.

Choice/Opt-out

We allow you the choice to opt-out of having your information used for purposes not directly related to our site, when we ask for the information. Until you explicitly opt-in for the first time we consider you in the opt-out category. We always notify our customers when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party. 

We do not bombard people with e-mails, nor do we start sending them surface junk mail. We don't take your contact with us as "permission" to start sending you anything or sign you up for any list of any sort. Mindconnection does have an eNL that comes out twice a month. You must ask to be signed up for it--we don't assume you want to receive it just because you bought a product or contacted us for some other reason.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a Website, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser permits a Website to access only the cookies it has already sent to you (not the cookies sent to you by other sites).

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?

As you visit our Website, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other customers. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from being logged in more than is necessary for security. We do not load ads onto your computer or transmit any other unauthorized data or programs to your machine. Nor do we spy on you through the use of cookies or other code.

Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Website and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us to constantly improve our Website and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.

Sharing Information with Third Parties

We may enter into alliances or other business arrangements with third parties. But we do not give them access to personal information (including your name, address, telephone number, and email) for the purpose of providing you information regarding products and services that we think will be of interest to you. We provide them that information only with the purpose of delivering your product. We ask anyone in an alliances or other business arrangements with us to respect that and not use your information beyond that purpose.

In connection with alliances or other business arrangements, we provide certain information to third parties if we have determined that the information will be used in a responsible manner by a responsible third party. Otherwise, we don't.

We use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, sending email and processing credit card payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with business activities.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

Let us count the ways....

Secure Information Transmissions

Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we insist that you never send credit card information via e-mail. Doing so violates your credit card policy and it puts you at risk. We do have a means of sharing that information that conforms to your credit card policy and protects you and your information: our Website.

Some of the information you may enter on our Website may be transmitted securely via Secure Sockets Layer SSL, 128 bit encryption services. Pages utilizing this technology will have URLs that start with HTTPS instead of HTTP. Please contact comments@mindconnection.com if you have any questions or concerns.

How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?

You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by contacting us. See the above contact information. 

What About Other Websites Linked to Our Website?

We are not responsible for the practices employed by Websites linked to or from our Website nor the information or content contained therein. Often links to other Websites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our Website.

Please remember that when you use a link to go from our Website to another Website, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other Website, including Websites which have a link on our Website, is subject to that Web site's own rules and policies. Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding.

Your Consent

By using our Website you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. If we change our privacy policies and procedures, we will post those changes on our Website to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we may disclose it.  At any time, you may view any and all changes and updates. 

Notification of Changes

The Privacy Policy is subject to periodic review and change. To view the current Privacy Policy, simply check this section of the Website.

If we materially change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement and other places we deem appropriate so users are aware of what information we collect, how it is used, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.


Mindconnection Privacy Statement
Mindconnection created this privacy statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy.

The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this Website: Mindconnection.com. It also applies to our umbrella Websites.

First of all, let's summarize. We respect our visitors. We do not sell or trade the information you trust us with. We use it to conduct business with you, and that's it.

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Web site, and to gather broad demographic information. We also use your IP address when you make a purchase; this helps identify you and your shopping cart. Our site uses cookies to keep track of your shopping cart. We use cookies for other purposes, but never sell or trade cookie information to other parties.

This site contains links to other sites. Mindconnection.com is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. We do have special relationships with partners. These include business partners, co-branded sites, and Mindconnection sites owned under license but administered by others.

At the time of developing these relationships, we ensured our partners also were respectful of privacy. We will sever relationships with any partner who abuses--through deliberate action or negligence--the privacy of a Mindconnection customer or a customer referred by Mindconnection.

Please inform us of any breach of privacy, so we may investigate it and take the appropriate action. Such action would include not only an ousting of the offending party, but our effort to help you correct any problems you incur as a result. Even with the best of safeguards, misunderstandings do occur, so please allow the other party to explain--the fault may not be theirs, even if it appears to be.

Our site uses order forms for customers to buy products. We use information from order forms to send customers the products they ordered.

We also use customer contact information (via e-mail) to get in touch with a visitor when necessary--for example, many people write us for advice on a variety of topics and we frequently make individual responses. We also have two joke lists. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

We do send e-mails to people who sign up for our eNL. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. We do not share those addresses.

Security

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. We have restricted physical access to our building, an armed guard on site, an elaborate security system, restricted access  to our computers, and a working relationship with the police department in a low-crime area that has additional security measures.

So, it's not likely someone will break in and steal information about you. We do not leave any computer logged in unattended. Further, we use dynamic IP addresses for our Internet access, so every time we log on, we are somebody new--this is very frustrating to a hacker. All this is just for the non-sensitive information.

We do not partner with MLMs, e-mail spammers, or other scam artists who are out to make a buck rather than conduct their business with the goal of meeting a customer's need in a way that is both moral and ethical.

Choice/Opt-Out

Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us. You can send email to comments@mindconnection.com.

Correct/Update

Same as previous.

Contacting the Web Site

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Web site, you can send email to comments@mindconnection.com.
