Our privacy pledge to you: We will not collect any personal information from you that you do not volunteer, and we are the sole owner of all information collected on this site. We do not sell, share, or rent this information to others in any way that we have not mentioned in this statement.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE COLLECT IT
Many of the services and features on our site are offered without our collecting any personally identifiable information from you. You can surf QWHIP.com and view our content anonymously.
The information we gather on our site falls into two categories: (1) personal information you supply when you subscribe, order, complete a survey, register for an online discussion, enter a contest, or provide your email address, and (2) tracking information collected as you navigate through our site.
Personally identifiable information
To use certain features on our site, we may ask you to subscribe or register. When you do this, we collect personally identifiable information about you such as your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, credit card information, user name and password, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services. In addition, we may ask you for personal information when you place an order for products, enter a contest, or complete a survey. We use this information to process your order or request or to help improve our site.
When personally identifiable information is collected, you will know because you will have to fill out a form.
When you use our site, we may collect tracking information such as your browser type, the type of operating system you use, the domain name of your Internet service provider, and pages visited on the site. None of this information identifies you personally; we collect it for aggregate reporting on site activity. For example, we may want to know how long the average user spends on our site, or which pages or features get the most attention. We use this information to make the site more useful to you. We may also use third-party services to assist us with non-personal tracking.
We use "cookies" to store and sometimes to track user information. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us email address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering or subscribing to our site. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie contains a unique number that allows our site to recognize your computer. For example, cookies allow us to keep track of your user name and password (if you are a subscriber) so you don't have to re-enter that information each time you visit our site. The help function on most browsers contains information on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies or to disable cookies entirely. However, if you don't accept cookies, you won't be able to take advantage of various features on our site that are available to other visitors.
We also may use "pixel tags" or "web beacons" on certain pages of our website. These are tiny graphic images that enable us to record anonymous data about visits. This anonymous information is also known as "clickstream data." We use this data to analyze trends and to improve your online experience. No personal data is collected through the use of pixel tags on our site.
HOW YOUR INFORMATION WILL BE USED
Our primary goal in collecting information is to make our site more useful to you.
QWHIP.com uses personally identifiable information in a limited number of ways. We use the information to complete transactions and fulfill requests for our services. For instance, if you purchase a product from us online, we use your information to process your order, or if you contact us for help, we will use the information to contact you. We also use the information you provide to send you email and mail only for QWHIP.com products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
Sharing your personally identifiable information
If you have an online subscription to QWHIP.com, purchase or download any of our products, or enter a contest, QWHIP.com will not sell, rent, swap, or authorize any third party to use any information that specifically identifies you.
In some instances, we use third party companies to help us provide our products and services to you, like a shipping company that delivers a package or an email delivery service that sends out our email and e-newsletters. In those instances we need to share your information with them. We require that those companies use the information only to deliver the product or service.
We may occasionally release personal information as required by law, for example, to comply with a court order or subpoena.
HOW YOU CAN CORRECT YOUR INFORMATION
QWHIP.com believes in providing you with the ability to access and edit the personal information that you have provided to us. To update the QWHIP.com information retained about you — or, for any other requests — write to us at:
1000 BOURBON ST PMB 407
NEW ORLEANS LA 70116
To protect your privacy and security, we will also verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
OUR EMAIL POLICIES
Account- and services-related email: We will send you email relating to your account. These include order confirmations, renewal/expiration notices, and credit card problem notifications. If you have registered for online discussions you may receive email specific to your participation online.
Email newsletters: We may offer several email newsletters. If you no longer wish to receive a specific newsletter, you can either (1) follow the 'unsubscribe' instructions located near the bottom of each newsletter; or (2) go to our member center and select the appropriate option.
Promotional email: We may also email you messages that we think may be of interest to you about other products and services. You can choose not to receive additional types of messages in the future by either (1) following the 'unsubscribe' instructions located near the bottom of each email, or (2) go to our Email Center and select the appropriate option.
HTML verification: When receiving an email from QWHIP, we may place a one-pixel gif in that email to understand whether or not you can accept HTML images and, if you can accept HTML, whether or not you viewed the email. This process does not leave any information on your computer, nor does it collect information from your computer. QWHIP does not share or sell this information with others, and we only use it to improve our email communications with you.
SECURITY AND PASSWORDS
We maintain a secure process to collect, transmit and store your personally identifiable information. When you provide credit card information, we use secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect it. See our Security policy for details. Subscribers can review or change subscription or credit card information at any time at Subscription help.
We urge you to keep your password in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This ensures that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or internet cafe.
QWHIP is not responsible for the content of any sites which may be linked to from QWHIP.com. These links are provided for your convenience only and you access them at your own risk.
