  2. Information Practices
    The Links at Dover Coast and its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, "Dover Coast") understand that security and privacy are important issues for visitors to the Site. Dover Coast recognizes the importance you place on keeping your information secure and confidential. It maintains the following standards to help protect information that personally identifies you. Dover Coast may change the Policy at any time by posting revisions to the Site, and your continued use of the Site indicates your agreement to the revised Policy. Accordingly, Dover Coast urges you to review the Policy at the start of each visit to the Site. If you do not agree to the Policy, you are not permitted to use the Site.

  3. Collection of Information
    You may be asked to voluntarily provide your name, address, phone number, e-mail address or other personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") to have access to some features of the Site, such as order forms, event registrations, newsletter subscriptions, and requests for information and any other tools that Dover Coast may make available via the Site. By using the Site and providing Dover Coast with your Personal Information, you consent to Dover Coast's use of such information as described in this Policy. You may always refuse to provide your Personal Information, and this may lead to Dover Coast's inability to provide you with certain products or services.

    Dover Coast or its business partners may also collect information that is anonymous, such as your IP number (a number used to identify your computer on the Internet) or the type of browser you are using ("Anonymous Information"). Because this information helps Dover Coast in evaluating how its visitors use and navigate the Site, including the number and frequency of visitors to each page of the Site, and the length of visits, Dover Coast hopes that, by using Anonymous Information, it can update the Site to make it more useful to you and other users. Dover Coast reserves the right to maintain, update, disclose or otherwise use Anonymous Information, without limitation.

    Your use of some of the online tools and any other tools that Dover Coast may make available via the Site will require you to share certain information regarding your business with Dover Coast or its business partners (the "Business Information"). The Business Information is necessary to the operation of the tools. You may always refuse to provide the Business Information, but such a refusal will result in the loss of functionality of the tools.

  4. Use of Information
    Dover Coast may use your Personal Information for the following purposes: to process requests made by you; to market Dover Coast's products and services to you and to notify you of Dover Coast's promotional events or Dover Coast's special offers; to provide Internet Security; where reasonably necessary to enforce the Terms, including this Policy; and if there is a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request. Dover Coast may work with our business partners who may perform certain functions on our behalf, such as sending e-mail messages, managing data, or providing customer service. These business partners have access to your Personal Information only to the extent necessary to perform these specific functions and may not use it for any other purpose. Other than for the specific purposes set forth in this Policy, Dover Coast will not disclose your Personal Information unless Dover Coast obtains your prior consent or is legally required to do so.

    Dover Coast may use third party advertising companies to place ads on the Site and to place Dover Coast's advertisements on other web sites. These companies may use Anonymous Information about your visits to this and other web sites to provide advertisements on the Site and other sites about goods and services that may be of interest to you.

    Dover Coast will not use the Business Information for any purpose other than in connection with the operation and improvement of the tools or in the creation of new tools.

    If Dover Coast is involved in the sale of a substantial portion of its business assets, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Dover Coast may transfer Anonymous, Personal, and Business Information to the third-party acquirer who will thereafter step into Dover Coast's shoes and will be entitled to do anything Dover Coast had the right to do under this Policy and the Terms.
