1.2. Survey Information. Rotor Nerds may collect information from you when you voluntarily complete a Rotor Nerds survey, order form, or a registration page either online by using the internet, offline by providing this information through the mail, in person or using a telephone. This information may be collected by surveys, order forms, or registration pages operated by third parties. This method of collection is collectively known as a “Survey.” In such Surveys, Rotor Nerds or a third party may ask you to provide personal identifiable information including your name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, social security number, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information as may be requested from time to time. Rotor Nerds may also collect such information concerning you from another source and uses that information in combination with information provided from the Websites. Completing the Surveys is completely voluntary, and you are under no obligation to provide Survey Information to Rotor Nerds or a third party.
1.3. Third Party Information. Rotor Nerds may collect information from you when you provide information to a third party and Rotor Nerds subsequently acquires or uses the information provided by the third party.

1.4. Other Methods of Collecting Personal Information. Other occasions when Rotor Nerds obtains information from you include (1) your claiming a prize or seeking to redeem an offer by Rotor Nerds or by a third party, (2) your requests for assistance through Rotor Nerds’s customer service department, and (3) when you voluntarily subscribe to a Rotor Nerds service or newsletter.
1.5. Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology. Rotor Nerds currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about you with information about you in its database. Additionally, Rotor Nerds may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future.
(b) Web Beacons. A web beacon is a programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page, but can also be used to transfer your unique user identification to a database and associate you with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows Rotor Nerds to track certain websites you visit. Web beacons are used to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes to determine products or services you may be interested in. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, Rotor Nerds also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in Rotor Nerds’s database.
(c) IP Addresses. Rotor Nerds automatically tracks certain information based upon your behavior on the site. We may use this information to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on the site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on the site or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address. Your Internet Protocol (“IP”) is a unique Internet “address” which is assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider (“ISP”). For local area network (“LAN”), DSL, or cable modem users, an IP address may be permanently assigned to a particular computer. IP addresses are automatically logged by Web servers, collecting information about a user’s traffic patterns. While the IP address does not identify an individual by name, it may, with the cooperation of the ISP, be used to locate and identify an individual using the Web. Your IP address can, however, reveal what geographic area you are connecting from, or which ISP you are using. Finally, other websites you visit have IP addresses, and we may collect the IP addresses of those websites and their pages.
(e) Data Analysis. Data Analysis technology may be employed from time to time if used by a Client of Rotor Nerds.
(f) New Technology. The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly developing. As a result, Rotor Nerds strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of new technology.
1.6. No Information Collected from Children. Rotor Nerds will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 13. If Rotor Nerds obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from its database. Because it does not collect such information, Rotor Nerds has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties. Rotor Nerds has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”).
1.7. Credit Card Information. Rotor Nerds may, in certain instances, collect credit card numbers and related information when an individual places an order from Rotor Nerds. When the credit card information is submitted to Rotor Nerds, such information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. Rotor Nerds will use the credit card information for purposes of processing and completing the purchase transaction, and the credit card information will be disclosed to third parties only as necessary to complete the purchase transaction.
- Use of Individual Information.
2.1. General Use. The following paragraphs in Section 2 describe how Rotor Nerds currently uses Individual Information, but Rotor Nerds may change or broaden its use at any time.

Rotor Nerds may use Individual Information to provide promotional offers to individuals by means of email advertising, telephone marketing, direct mail marketing, online banner advertising, and package stuffers, among other possible uses.
2.2. Email and Unsubscribe Policy. Rotor Nerds uses Individual Information to provide promotional offers by email to individuals. Rotor Nerds may maintain separate email lists for different purposes. If email recipients wish to end their email subscription from a particular list, they need to follow the instructions at the end of each email message to unsubscribe from the particular list. To unsubscribe from all Rotor Nerds’s email lists, a person must send an email to email@example.com.
Rotor Nerds’s unsubscribe process impacts only the future delivery of electronic mailings disseminated by Rotor Nerds on its own behalf. You may still receive electronic mailings sent on behalf of Third Parties and your personal information may still be shared with Third Parties for use in offline marketing and data appends, including email appends.
You should also note that unsubscribing from Rotor Nerds’s electronic mailings will not automatically unsubscribe the subscriber’s information from any Third Party business associates and licensees of the data. Since Third Party associates and licensee partners maintain separate databases from Rotor Nerds, and you will need to unsubscribe from each source individually, if desired. This allows you the freedom to pick and choose which subscriptions to maintain and which to discontinue.
2.3. Content of Email Messages. In certain commercial email messages sent by Rotor Nerds, an Advertiser’s name will appear in the “From:” line but hitting the “Reply” button will cause a reply email to be sent to Rotor Nerds. The “Subject:” line of Rotor Nerds email messages will usually contain a line provided from the Advertiser to Rotor Nerds.
2.4. Solicited Email. Rotor Nerds only sends email to individuals who have agreed on the Websites to receive email from Rotor Nerds or to individuals who have agreed on a Third Party website to receive email from Third Parties. As such, Rotor Nerds does not send unsolicited email messages. As a result, United States statutes requiring certain formatting for unsolicited email are not applicable to Rotor Nerds’s email messages.
2.5. Targeted Advertising. Rotor Nerds may use Individual Information to target advertising to an individual. When an individual is using the Internet, Rotor Nerds uses Technology Information to associate an individual with that person’s Individual Information, and Rotor Nerds attempts to show advertising for products and services in which the person has expressed an interest in the Surveys, indicated an interest by means of Technology Information, and otherwise.

We may use individual information to provide the services you’ve requested, including services that display customized content and advertising.
2.7. Use of Technology Information. Rotor Nerds uses Technology Information (1) to match a person’s Survey Information and Third Party List Information to other categories of Individual Information to make and improve profiles of individuals, (2) to track a person’s online browsing habits on the Internet, (3) to determine which areas of Rotor Nerds’s websites are most frequently visited. This information helps Rotor Nerds to better understand the online habits of individuals so that Rotor Nerds can target advertising and promotions to them.
2.10. Profiles of Individuals. Rotor Nerds uses Individual Information to make a profile of an individual. A profile can be created by combining Survey Information and Third Party List Information with other sources of Individual Information such as information obtained from public databases.

Our computers have security measures (such as a firewall) in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under Rotor Nerds’s control.
