BUMPERSOFT is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please read the following Privacy Policy (our "Policy") to understand how the information of our valued customers, companies, businesses, and organizations (collectively "you") will be treated as you make full use of our many offerings.

The BUMPERSOFT Web Site is made up of various Web sites and Web pages operated by BumperSoft.com (collectively, the "BUMPERSOFT Web Sites"). This Policy applies to the BUMPERSOFT Web Sites and does not apply to the content of third parties. This Policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically. Your continued use of the BUMPERSOFT Web Sites after any such modification constitutes your acceptance of our modified Policy.

The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the BUMPERSOFT Web Sites

1.0 Collection of your Personal Information

BUMPERSOFT Web Sites collect information in several ways from different parts of our network of Web sites.

In general, you can visit BUMPERSOFT Web Sites using the visitor view function without giving us any personally identifiable information. However, sometimes we do need information to provide services that you request.

Any information we collect on BUMPERSOFT Web Sites generally falls into the following two categories: Personally Identifiable Information and Aggregate Information.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

This refers to information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you.

  • Registration: When you register with BUMPERSOFT and establish an account with us, you provide personally identifiable information such as name, email addresses, telephone numbers, zip code, and other information. This personal identifiable information is securely stored in our users registration databases. You select a user name or will be given a unique identification number, which, together with your selected password, are needed to access your account.

    If you chose to sign up for a paid service (such as BUMPERSOFT Sponsored Listing), we will collect information, such as your credit card number and billing address, which is used to process payment and to communicate with you about the status of your order. Your credit card information will be retained and securely stored in our users registration databases.

    Some BUMPERSOFT services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such services, both BUMPERSOFT and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services.

  • Correspondence: If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence, including your personally identifiable information, in a file specific to you. We use this information to respond to your correspondence and to provide better service in the event you contact us again.

AGGREGATE INFORMATION

This refers to information that cannot by itself identify you as a specific individual. This information may include your referring Web site addresses, IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name, and access times. Our servers automatically collect and aggregate this information in order to provide general statistics regarding use of BUMPERSOFT Web Sites, evaluate its effectiveness, and maintain quality of our service.

Wherever BUMPERSOFT collects personally identifiable information we make an effort to include a link to our Policy on that page.

2.0 Use of your Personal Information

BUMPERSOFT collects and uses your personal information to operate BUMPERSOFT and deliver the services you have requested. These services may include the display of customized content and advertising based upon the information we have collected. In order to provide services in conjunction with other BUMPERSOFT products or services, personal information collected on BUMPERSOFT Web Sites may be accessed and used by other BUMPERSOFT services as necessary to provide such services. Any use of such information within BUMPERSOFT Web Sites will remain subject to the limitations of our Policy statement.

We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. Some BUMPERSOFT services, including BUMPERSOFT Newsletters, may send periodic member letters that are considered part of the service. We may also occasionally send you product surveys or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from BUMPERSOFT and its affiliates.

BUMPERSOFT does not sell, rent, or lease its BUMPERSOFT customer lists to third parties. We may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personal information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

BUMPERSOFT may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on BUMPERSOFT Web Sites; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of BUMPERSOFT, including BUMPERSOFT family of Web Sites; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of BUMPERSOFT services or members of the public.

Personal information collected on BUMPERSOFT Web Sites may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which BUMPERSOFT or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using BUMPERSOFT Web Sites, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

6.0 Use of Cookies

BUMPERSOFT prohibits Web beacons on BUMPERSOFT Web Sites from being used by third parties to access your personal information.

Finally, BUMPERSOFT may work with other companies that advertise on BUMPERSOFT to place Web beacons on their sites in order to allow us to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on BUMPERSOFT results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser's site.

9.0 Controlling "Spam" or Unsolicited Email

BUMPERSOFT is concerned about controlling unsolicited commercial email or "spam." BUMPERSOFT will not sell, lease, or rent its email subscriber lists to third parties. While BUMPERSOFT continues to actively review and implement new technology, there is no currently available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited email. Using tools such as the Inbox Protector and being cautious about the sharing of your email address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited email you receive.
