Our Privacy Policy

What information do we collect?

What do we use your information for?

Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you submit a request.

We offer the use of a secure server for hosting anonymous data (visits, etc.)

After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, etc.) are NEVER stored on our servers.

Do we use cookies or sessions?

Rarely.  Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information, such as what you’ve already reviewed or if you’re still logged in.

Cometrics prefers to use anonymous IP and PHP sessions to personalize your experience.  IP addresses are kept anonymous (you’ll have a different one if you simply went to a different computer or went to Starbucks).  So, there’s really no way for us to track you personally.  PHP Sessions are server-side tracking mechanisms and they are destroyed every time you log out and/or close your browser.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.   See “Online Privacy Policy Only” below.
