What information does BonusWords.Com
1) Web Server Logs:
Identifying in broad terms the geographic reach of visitors to the web site. This may assist in designing the site and presenting it in a manner most suitable for the visitors.
Identifying the web pages or files most or least accessed by visitors. This assists in knowing the type/s of information which visitors are most, or least, interested in finding at the BonusWords.Com website, and according provides useful information for further developing the site to cater for the interests of visitors.
Monitor potential abusers, such as visits by spam bots, hackers, or other types of abusers. Any such cases of abuse identified may lead to BonusWords.Com passing on an abuse report to the ISP or other upstream service supplier of the abuser. Although our web log information does not personally identify the abuser, the combination of IP address and time and date from our logs enables the ISP or other service provider of the offender to compare it to their log records, and identify the abuser. Such information and action is not routinely passed back to BonusWords.Com, though in extreme cases we reserve the right to take legal action to compel that service provider to provide to us the identity of the abuser so that civil or criminal actions can be pursued against the perpetrator.
Web server log information is also used to monitor the stability and security of the web server, and to monitor its proper functioning.
2) Product Sales
Unless further contact is initiated by the purchaser, we guarantee not to ever use the email address of the purchaser. Even then, it will be used for the sole purpose of responding to the specific contact initiated by the purchaser.
The one and only exception to the above paragraph is where BonusWords.Com has sold a product with a promise of providing a further product as a free bonus when publication becomes available. In such a case, purchaser's email addresses will be used at the time the free bonus product becomes available for the sole purpose of notifying the customer that the product they are expecting has now become available.
Such email addresses will never be sold, rented, traded, given or in any other way provided to any other party for any reason whatsoever, unless a customer requests a refund. In the event that we consider their request for a refund to be legitimate, we will forward a copy of the sales notification supplied to us by Clickbank/Keynetics back to Clickbank/Keynetics giving our authorisation for a refund to be granted. Clarifying this, in the event of issuing a refund, we will only send back to Clickbank/Keynetics the exact same information that they supplied to us originally, and which was supplied to them in the first place by the customer. (The only other imaginable exception to this paragraph is in the extremely unlikely event that we are obliged to disclose this information by law.)
The product sales records may also be used by BonusWords.Com for generic purposes such as identifying the most common countries of customers. Such information in aggregate form may be useful in planning future product launches, marketing campaigns, and similar purposes.
3) Newsletter Subscription Records:
Aggregated data in a generic sense (such as the IP number or the email domain name country codes, for example) from the subscription information may also be used to better understand and serve the demographics of our subscribers, or to plan future marketing campaigns. (For example, we may decide from such aggregated generic data that web users in a certain country are not being reached by our online marketing activities. We may then amend our banner advertising, or the web sites on which we may place advertisements, in order to better serve particular markets.)
No personal information of any affiliate will be made available to any other party (except Clickbank, which administers the affiliate program) without the express prior permission of the affiliate. (The only imaginable exception to this paragraph is in the extremely unlikely event that we are obliged to disclose this information by law.)
