Collection of your Personal Information

The Swaen collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. The Swaen also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by The Swaen. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by The Swaen for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the The Swaen Web site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through The Swaen public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: The Swaen does not read any of your private online communications.

The Swaen encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from The Swaen so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. The Swaen is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the The Swaen and The Swaen family of Web sites.

Use of your Personal Information

The Swaen does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. The Swaen may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, The Swaen may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to The Swaen, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

The Swaen does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

The Swaen keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within The Swaen, in order to determine what The Swaen services are the most popular.
