You take online privacy seriously, and so does Starlight PC. It's our way of sustaining your trust in Starlight PC as well as in our products and services. You should know that we do not disclose any personal information to any third party for any reason unless you have instructed us to do so. (i.e. credit card processing, etc.)
You can visit Starlight PC on the World Wide Web without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses of visitors. Also, we may collect and store other information about your visit on an anonymous, aggregate basis. This information may include the time and length of your visit, the pages you look at on our sites, and the site you visited just before coming to ours. We may also record the name of your Internet service provider, browser type, and country of origin. We use this information only to measure site activity and to develop ideas for improving our site.
Starlight PC may ask you to register and provide information that personally identifies you, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address or phone number ("Personal Information"). This will occur in certain circumstances, including for example, when you download trial software, sign up for newsletter services, download patches, purchase software, register software, or join a limited-access premium service. We use your Personal Information for three primary purposes:
Starlight PC will not provide your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, or any other Personal Information to any third parties. We may, from time to time, select other companies with pertinent information or products we think might be appropriate for you, and send you that information on behalf of that third party. To accomplish that, we would not disclose your Personal Information to them.
If you do not desire us to send you information on third party products, do not check the appropriate check box requesting us to do so. Similarly, if you don't want Starlight PC to send you e-mail or postal mail regarding Starlight PC' products, services, or special offers, do not check the appropriate check boxes requesting us to do so.
When you register a product, whether purchased online directly from Starlight PC or otherwise, we store the Personal Information you give us on a secure server. That information is treated in the same manner as any Personal Information gathered through the online store. If you do not wish to have Starlight PC marketing information sent to you, choose the appropriate options and we will refrain from doing so.
"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information. They only contain a secure identifying code that we use to match you to your Personal Information whenever you return to our site. Your Personal Information is never directly connected to nor stored on your computer, but is accessed when we identify your cookie to provide you with a more personalized experience when visiting our site.
What Information Do We Collect?
The type of information we maintain on our secure Personal Information server falls into two categories. The first is general information about you such as name, billing address, e-mail address, company name, etc. We do not store credit card information as part of your Personal Information. The second is product-specific information that enables us to customize information for you depending on which of our products or services you have purchased or registered. Our Technical Support department also utilizes this information when you contact it.
We also store information about how you navigate our site so that when you return to it again, we may present you with a more efficient, personalized experience based on your interests and needs. As we continue to develop the this site, we hope to continually increase the personally customized quality of your browsing and shopping experiences.
We also store specific information if you enter a contest that enables us to track entrants and award prizes. Similarly, we store specific information gathered in on-line surveys we conduct in order for us to accurately interpret the information gathered.
Starlight PC reserves the right to alter our privacy principles as business needs require. Any alterations to these principles will be posted on our web site in a timely manner.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, or problems that might arise.
