We use cookies to make it easier for you to access our services. You may use this site without having cookies enabled, but some features may not work properly.

Long Version
What information do we collect?
We limit the collection and use of customer information to the minimum we require to deliver superior service to you, which includes advising you about our products, services and other opportunities, and to administer our business.

How do we use that information?
We will permit only authorized employees and contractors, who are trained in the proper handling of customer information, to have access to the information we collect. Examples of partners used to support this program include customer service (limited) and web site hardware technicians. Our partners have controlled access to our data and are not allowed to use our user information for any secondary purposes. Employees or partners who violate this policy will be subject to disciplinary action. We will always maintain control over the confidentiality of your information. We will not sell your information to third parties for commercial purposes. We may monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site. We may also provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will not contain personally identifying information.

Do we use "cookies"?
Yes, we will place a text file called a "cookie" on your computer. Many Internet services deliver cookies to people who visit their Web sites in order to make their services much more convenient and personalized. A cookie stores information about your use of a site on your computer and it can be retrieved later only by you or by the site that issued that cookie. Some sites rely on information that is passed along with the URL to keep track of users that are logged in. This approach can compromise your security. By using your cookie to keep track of the time spent on our site, we guarantee the security of your information. A cookie is safe because it is not "executed" as code, and therefore cannot contain viruses. A cookie also cannot be used to extract any data from your computer. The information we collect with cookies is not sold, rented or shared with any outside parties. In order to use this site fully, you need to have cookies enabled on your browser.

Log Files
This site's Web server automatically creates files with the following information: IP address, request type, file accessed and access time. This data is collected to administer the site, and to gather usage data for design feedback.

Protecting your password
You should not disclose your password to any third parties. If someone else knows your password, you may lose substantial control over your personally identifying information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken by the person using your password. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately contact pvs@PlainVanillaShell.com. Your password will be deleted and you can reregister with a different password.

How to contact us or opt-out
We will monitor ourselves continuously to ensure that your privacy is respected. We welcome your questions and comments about our privacy policy. At any time, you may contact us to "opt out" of further e-mail contact (excepting notification of major changes to the service) while still retaining your access to our site. To contact us or to opt-out, please send e-mail, to pvs@PlainVanillaShell.com, with the subject "Opt-Out" and a message containing your password. You may cancel your membership in this service at any time by writing, e-mailing or calling the customer service department.
