The information we collect includes personal information, such as:
No Information From Children Under Age 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not attempt to register with us at this Site or provide any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete that information.

Information We Collect Automatically. We collect certain information automatically as you use our Site, such as:
To Provide Products, Services, and Information. As described above, we collect information from you so that we can provide products and services that you purchase using the Site, and information (such as newsletters) that you request from us. We use your personal information to contact you about your orders, process credit card / debit card transactions, and ship products to you. For example we use Escrow.com and First Data to facilitate transactions arranged through our Site and services. We may provide information to third party service providers that help us bring you the services we offer. For example, we may use third parties to help host our website, send out email updates about the Site, remove repetitive information from our user lists, and process payments. These service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time, but when this occurs we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to helping us provide the service. We use demographic information to better understand our customers, and improve our products and services.
We use Google AdSense for providing advertising on our Site. Through this service third parties may be placing and reading cookies on your browsers, or using web beacons to collect information as a result of providing online advertising. Google uses the DoubleClick DART cookie on publisher websites displaying AdSense for content ads.
Some websites may belong to ad networks that use your browsing history across websites to choose which ads to display on their sites; the displayed ads may include advertising for TalentEarth. To learn more, and to opt out of seeing interest-based advertisements on these sites, visit the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance websites (www.networkadvertising.org and www.aboutads.info). Websites may also offer their own opt-out methods for interest-based advertising.
Your Consent. We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Google when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information. Sensitive personal information is a particular category of personal information relating to confidential medical facts, racial or ethnic origins, political or religious beliefs or sexuality.
Legal Requests or Requirements and to Prevent Harm. We will share personal information with third party companies, organizations or individuals outside of TalentEarth if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
You can access and update certain information we have relating to your online account by signing into your account and going to your online account information. If you have questions about personal information we have about you or need to update your information, you can Contact Us.
You can close your online account by accessing your account information online at our Site. If you close your account, we will no longer use your online account information or share it with third parties. We may, however, retain a copy of the information for archival purposes, and to avoid identity theft or fraud.
In order to help secure your personal information, access to your data on our Site is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as a social security number) is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and our Site. To protect any data you store on our servers, we also regularly audit our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a tier-one secured-access data center. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot guarantee, ensure, or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. Please note that e-mails you send to us through our Site are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means.
Under California’s "Shine the Light" law, California residents who provide personal information in obtaining products or services for personal, family or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us once a calendar year information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared customer information for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g. requests made in 2012 will receive information regarding 2011 sharing activities).
To obtain this information, please send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Request for California Privacy Information" on the subject line and in the body of your message. We will provide the requested information to you at your e-mail address in response. Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the "Shine the Light" requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.
