Golden Nest respects the privacy of every individual who visits our websites. This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for Golden Nest.
Information Collection and Use
Golden Nest is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. Golden Nest will not collect any personally-identifiable information about you (e.g., your name, address, telephone number or email address (“personal data”)) through our websites unless you have provided it to us voluntarily.
When you do provide us with personal data, we may use that information in the following ways, unless stated otherwise: we may store and process that information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services; we (or a fulfillment house or other third party on our behalf in connection with a promotion) may use that information to contact you; and/or we may provide other third parties with aggregate – but not individual – information about visitors to or users of our sites. We do not now and do not intend to sell, rent or market personal data about you to third parties.
We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Golden Nest collects information from our users at several different points on our Website.
Web Site Registration
In order to use some features of this Website, users must first complete the registration form. During registration, users are required to give their contact information (name and e-mail address). This information is used to contact users about the topics on our site for which they have expressed interest and to enable users to retrieve lost passwords. It is also required for the user to provide demographic information (mailing address and phone number)
In some cases, we may automatically (i.e., not via registration) collect technical information when you connect to our site that is not personally-identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet Browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using and the domain name of the website from which you linked to our site.
*Different browsers have different cookie settings. With Netscape, you can ask the browser to allow, warn you, or completely disable cookies. Internet Explorer has an additional feature where you can specify different settings for different security zones. You can choose to allow Websites to create cookies for you in your “trusted sites” (like Golden Nest ), to warn you before you create them in your local Intranet zone, and to give you an option to never allow them in a “restricted zone.” See the “Help” section of your particular browser for more information on working with cookies.
Golden Nest may share aggregated demographic information with our partners, sponsors, and donors. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
This Website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Golden Nest does not claim any responsibility for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Website.
This Website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information, and we have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.
Occasionally, our site requests information from users via Web surveys. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include demographic data (such as zip code and age), but nothing that can identify any individual person will be collected. Survey results will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Send This to a Friend
If users elect to use our “Send This to a Friend” function, we ask them for the friend’s name and e-mail address. GN Store will automatically send friends a one-time e-mail message inviting them to visit the site. GN Store stores this information temporarily for the sole purpose of sending this one-time message.
We may also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to unsubscribe from service announcements that contain important information about the service. We communicate with users to provide requested services and to discuss issues relating to their accounts via e-mail or phone.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code or e-mail address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove that the personal data that was provided to us. Users can use the “My Account” link from their homepage or they can e-mail our Help Desk to change, correct, or remove information.
Our users are given the opportunity to “opt in” to newsletters and site update e-mail messages. To unsubscribe from mailings, please see that section above. To unsubscribe from any updates, users can use the “My Account” link from their homepage.
