In order to use FanMail, a user is required to give their Internet domain and contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used solely to keep the user's private information entered into FanMail's system separate from that of other users. Additional information such as credit card number, billing address, and phone number may also be required for billing purposes.

This website takes every precaution to protect our user's information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number, address and phone number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry. While on a secure page, such as the FanMail signup, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open and not secure.

We use encryption to protect sensitive information online. We also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our user's information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment and rigorously maintained to protect against security compromises.

Correction/Updating Personal Information

If a user's information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, the user is free at any time to update their information or withdraw from the service. They can do this by visiting the FanMail management web site and updating or removing their records from our system.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our home page so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email sent to the email address entered and maintained by you. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
