Our Commitment to Privacy.
The Information We Collect.
To help us achieve our goal of providing the highest quality services, we collect and apply information from our interactions with visitors and subscribers (each a "User") to the Weigl sites, as well as from other parties. Because we respect your privacy, we have procedures to ensure that your personal information is handled in a safe, secure, and responsible manner. The information we receive and collect depends on what a User does when visiting one of the Weigl sites.
Your Personal Information.
In general, our Users are able to visit many of our Web pages without telling us who they are or revealing any information about themselves. As discussed under "Usage Data" below, we may track the Internet domain or "Internet protocol" addresses from which Users visit us and analyze this data in the aggregate to determine usage for trends and statistics. Individual Users will remain anonymous, unless they voluntarily tell us who they are.
There may be times, however, such as when subscribing to our services, or making purchases from the Weigl store, when we ask Users to provide certain Personal Information about themselves. "Personal Information" may include, but is not limited to, the name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit or charge card information of a Weigl site User. Whether or not a User provides such information is completely his or her own choice. If a User chooses not to provide the Personal Information we request, he or she may be unable to access certain services and content on our Weigl sites, or purchase products from us.
There will also be opportunities for subscribers to provide us with demographic or profile information regarding their preferences and interests. This information may include, but is not limited to, age, gender, household income, level of education completed, number of children in the household, and personal-interest information. This demographic information, however, is not required and is completely optional on a subscriber's part. In an ongoing effort to improve its services, Weigl may use aggregated demographic information to draw conclusions about Users' wishes and preferences.
Prospect and Referral Information.
If a User visits a Weigl site and submits an e-mail address to Weigl but fails to complete the registration or purchase process, we may use such "prospect" information to contact the prospective User from time to time with Weigl offers and information about new features, new services, and special discounts we think the User may see as valuable. Similarly, if a User forwards a Weigl e-mail to a friend, we may use the "referral" information provided to contact the friend from time to time with Weigl offers and information about new features, new services, and special discounts we think the friend may see as valuable. All of our "prospect" and "referral" communications contain clearly marked opt-out instructions. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected in relation to "prospects" or "referrals" include: name and e-mail addresses. We do not sell or rent any contact information for such "prospects" or "referrals."

How We Use the Information We Collect.
We want you to understand when and with whom we may share personal or other information we have collected about you or your activities on our Web sites or while using our services.
Weigl uses Personal Information for: allowing Weigl site Users to obtain an account and to receive communications they request; making ongoing enhancements to the Weigl sites; marketing and promotional purposes; and evaluating Web site usage by analyzing and otherwise using Personal Information and related data in the aggregate, but not with respect to any individual Weigl site User.
Prospect and Referral Information.
As discussed above, we may use prospect and referral information to contact a prospect or referral from time to time with Weigl offers and information about new features, new services, or special discounts we think such prospect or referral may see as valuable. We do not sell or rent any contact information for such prospects or referrals.
We only use Usage Data in the aggregate. We look at the data on a collective basis, in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. This data helps us determine the extent to which our visitors use certain parts of a Weigl site, which, in turn, enables us to make the Weigl sites as appealing as possible. We may also provide statistical "ratings" about how our visitors collectively use our Web sites to business partners (advertisers and other companies with which we do business.) We do this so they, too, can understand how often people use their areas of the Web sites in order for them to provide you with the best possible experience. These statistical ratings do not contain any personally identifiable information about any of our individual Users.
Protection for Children.
Children should always ask parents for permission before providing any Personal Information to Weigl or purchasing any products or services from Weigl. Weigl expressly adheres to all laws and policies related to children's privacy. Weigl does not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Information from or about children under 16, except as permitted by law. If we discover we have received any Personal Information from a child under 16 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe Weigl has any Personal Information from or about anyone under 16, please contact us in the manner provided for below.
Our Commitment to Security.
Weigl only collects information from Weigl site Users to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve its legitimate business purposes, and it uses state-of-the-art security technology to ensure the security, integrity, and privacy of all collected information. When you place orders or access your account information, we automatically send you to a secure server, provided that your browser accepts SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption. The most commonly used browsers are able to process SSL encryption. The secure server software encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. In addition, Weigl uses security measures in connection with the collection and transmission of Weigl site User information during each Weigl site's registration process. Nonetheless, Weigl is not responsible for any breach of its security or for the actions of any third parties that may obtain any Weigl site User information, including Personal Information or demographic information.
Links to Other Web sites.
The Weig lsites each contain links to other Web sites. Weigl is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third-party Web sites. We urge all Weigl site Users to follow safe Internet practices: Do not supply Personal Information to these Web sites unless you have verified their security and privacy policies.
We retain your information for as long as necessary to permit us to use it for the purposes that we have communicated to you and comply with applicable law or regulations.
