Information Collection and Use
Sol collects personal information when you register or join with Sol, when you use Sol products or services, when you visit Sol pages or the pages of certain Sol advertisers, affiliates or publishers, and when you enter promotions or sweepstakes. Sol may also combine information about you that we have with information that we obtain from advertisers or other companies.
When you register or join, we ask for information such as your name, street address, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation and/or industry. Once you register or join with Sol and sign into our services, you are not anonymous to us.
Sol also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, Sol cookie information, and the page you request. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by an Internet User’s browser on the Internet User’s hard drive.
Sol uses information for the following general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our customer services, contact you, conduct research, and to provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Additionally, Sol displays targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet their targeting criteria – for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area. Sol does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad, you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad. Sol advertisers include financial service providers (such as banks, insurance agents, stock brokers and mortgage lenders) and non-financial companies (such as stores, airlines, and software companies).
Sol may set and access Sol cookies on your computer. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to Sol’s cookies. Sol uses web beacons to access Sol cookies inside and outside of our network of web sites and in connection with Sol products and services.
Confidentiality and Security
We limit access to the personal information about you within our company to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information in order to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you. Your Sol Account Information is password-protected. In certain areas Sol uses industry-standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions.
Sol may from time to time update this policy. We will notify you about any significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending you a notice to the primary email address specified in your Sol account or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
