Privacy Policy

At the Nerd Machine, we respect your right to privacy and understand that visitors to TheNerdMachine.com need to control the use of their personal information. The privacy policy below describes the measures taken by us to protect your privacy in connection with your use of our site.

Information We Collect

When you visit our site, we may ask for your e-mail address, name, and other information. We may also use various forms for listing, selling, purchasing, and returning products offered on our site. We may collect, depending on the form, your contact information (e.g. your e-mail address, mailing address and/or telephone number) and necessary financial information (i.e. your credit card number, expiration date, and exact name as it appears on your credit card). Contact information is used to process a sale and provide us with a means to contact our site users. Personally identified information also helps us tailor the content, services and goods to the current and future needs of the users of our site. We may use third parties to accept and process credit card payments for purchases of products on our site.

We will not share your personally identifiable information with third parties (aside from entities that perform services for us, such as processing credit card payments, that either are bound to comply with our privacy policy or have privacy policies that protect your information) unless you permit such sharing. However, we may disclose information you provide if required to do so by law or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process served on us; (2) protect and defend our rights or property; or (3) act in an emergency to protect someone’s safety. Also, as we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or stock and, depending upon the transaction, your personally identifiable information may be one of the transferred assets. In the event that we are acquired by another company, your personal information may be part of the assets transferred to the acquiring party.

If you have agreed to be included on our e-mail list in order to receive e-mail solicitations from us, we may send you e-mail messages from time to time informing you of our products and services, special offers, tips and developments at our site and may also inform you about third party products and services that we believe may be of interest to you. If you do not want to receive these e-mails from us, you can go to your Registration Profile and unclick the “Opt In” box. You will automatically be removed from our e-mail solicitation list.

Use of Our Site by Children

Our site is not directed to children under the age of 13. We assume products purchased with credit cards are purchased by adults or minors supervised by a parent or guardian. We respect the privacy of parents and children and are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). On those areas of our site that ask for age, we do not collect personal information from individuals who identify themselves as under the age of 13 except in those limited circumstances where we believe that such collection is permitted under COPPA. If a parent believes that his or her child has provided us with personal information, he or she can contact us via e-mail or postal mail. We will promptly remove the information.

Security

We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Although we will exercise reasonable care in providing secure transmission of information between your computer and our servers, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to is over the Internet and we accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure. We will protect the transmission of credit card information through industry standard encryption.

We may make changes to our privacy policy from time to time. When we do, we will post the revised privacy policy on our site with a link at the bottom of our home page. Our home page will also contain a statement notifying users that the policy has changed and the effective date of that change.

We may gather demographic information from you (e.g. your age, education level or household income) from time to time.
