Collection and Use of Personal Information
In general, we may retain and use your personal, demographic or preferences information in order to provide services for which you have subscribed, and respond to your questions or other requests. We may also use such information to improve the Joe Digital Inc. Site and its content, features and services, customize your experience on the Joe Digital Inc. Site and tailor communications from us to your interests and needs.
Use of our Site: Personal Information
We sometimes use other businesses to perform certain services for us, such as website hosting, e-mailing, sending postal mail, providing marketing assistance and data analysis, and performing other administrative services. We may provide personal information to those businesses when that information is necessary for them to complete a requested transaction or otherwise perform their duties for Joe Digital Inc.
From time to time, Joe Digital Inc. may have various affiliates (collectively, “Joe Digital Inc. Affiliates”), and also may have relationships with joint venturers, sponsors, partners, licensees and other businesses (collectively, the “Joe Digital Inc. Partners”). During the course of registering on our Site and visiting other areas of our Site, we may ask you if you would like us to share your personal information with Joe Digital Inc. Affiliates and Joe Digital Inc. Partners in order to offer or provide you with additional information, products or services. We will not share your personal information with Joe Digital Inc. Affiliates or Joe Digital Inc. Partners without your consent, which you may give by opting in to such sharing, or, when presented with the choice, choosing not to opt out of such sharing. If you consent to our sharing your information with Joe Digital Inc. Affiliates and Joe Digital Inc. Partners, then from time to time, you may receive communications from such Joe Digital Inc. Partners and Joe Digital Inc. Affiliates.
Finally, we reserve the right to transfer any and all information that we collect from Site Visitors to third parties in the event that we sell or transfer substantially all of our assets related to the Joe Digital Inc. Site to such third party. If Joe Digital Inc. should ever file for bankruptcy or have its assets sold to or merge with another entity, information Joe Digital Inc. receives from you from this site is a Joe Digital Inc. asset and may be transferred.
Use of our Site: Aggregate Information
We may collect certain information about your transactions with us, our affiliates, or others, your Site usage patterns, such as the pages on the Joe Digital Inc. Site you have visited and the amount of time you have spent on our Site. In some cases, we may link this information to personal information that you have provided to us in order to better tailor the Joe Digital Inc. Site and its services to your needs and preferences. We may also aggregate this type of information into general, non-personal tracking data derived by tallying and identifying users’ page views throughout our Site, depositing and tracking cookies, logging IP addresses, using “web beacons”, identifying browser type, and through other technologies (cookies and IP addresses are discussed further below). Such information enables us to better customize our content and services to users’ needs. We also use tracking data to create aggregate reports on Site Visitor demographics, Site traffic patterns, and consumer behavior. We may provide these reports to our advertisers and business partners, enabling them to better understand the demographics of our audience and target their advertisements on the Site to Site Visitors. Please be assured that these aggregate reports will not personally identify you.
To enhance your experience with our Site, many of our web pages use “cookies.” In general, cookies are small text files that we place in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. These cookies do not, by themselves, tell us your e-mail address and/or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at our Site. If, however, you choose to furnish Joe Digital Inc. Site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. In particular, we use both “session ID cookies” and “persistent cookies.’ In the case of a session ID cookie, once you close your browser, the cookie terminates altogether. In contrast, a persistent cookie may be stored on your hard drive for an extended period of time. If you would like to remove persistent cookies from your hard drive, you may do so by following Internet browser help file directions.
An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers, the big computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. Joe Digital Inc. collects IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to track the use of the Joe Digital Inc. Site. When visitors request pages from the Joe Digital Inc. Site, our servers log the visitors’ IP addresses.
Consistent with the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requiring parental consent. Any person who provides their personal information to Joe Digital Inc. through this web site represents that they are 13 years of age or older.

Please note that third parties (including, but not limited to, advertisers, Joe Digital Inc. Partners and third parties providing services to Joe Digital Inc.) may collect information about you, through cookies or other technologies, when you link to their websites through our Site.

Protecting the security of your personal information is very important to us. Therefore, we have taken precautions to ensure that this information is safe and secure. We maintain your profile information on a secure server. To use some features on the Joe Digital Inc. Site, we require that you create a password. We recommend that you do not disclose your password to any other person. In addition, when you transmit personal information from your PC to our servers, your information is protected by both a “firewall’ (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps keep unauthorized visitors from accessing information within our computer network) and industry standard SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable precautions to ensure its security on our systems. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Joe Digital Inc. strives to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information.
