Privacy Policy (Last updated, Thursday, July 24, 2003 at 9:15am EST)

Within the Privacy Policy, the operator of this Web site ("CoDec Entertainment Software Inc") will be referred to as "CoDec Entertainment Software", "CoDec", "we" or "us". We are committed to complete permission-based marketing, while safeguarding your privacy online. Please read our privacy policy ("Policy") to understand how your personal information will be treated as submitted on the Website. This Policy also applies to individuals who have agreed to receive email marketing from CoDec through opt-in or opt-out registration on another Website.

CoDec is committed to protecting your privacy. You can visit most pages on our site without giving us any information about yourself. But sometimes we do need information to provide services that you request, and this privacy statement explains data collection and use in those situations. This privacy statement only applies to the CoDec Entertainment Software website; it does not apply to other online or offline CoDec Enterprises sites, products or services. Please read the complete CoDec Entertainment Software privacy statement.

Collection of your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are registering before entering a contest, promotions, sweepstakes, ordering e-mail newsletters, joining a limited-access premium site, signing up for an event, or when purchasing products or services. Personal information collected by CoDec often is limited to e-mail address, language, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you requested.

For example: If you choose a service or transaction that requires payment, such as making a purchase in The CoDec Store, we will request personal information necessary for billing and/or shipping, such as: name, address, telephone number, and credit card number.

CoDec also collects certain information about your computer hardware and software. This information may include: your IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the CoDec Entertainment Software website.

CoDec also reserves the right to provide aggregate or group data about our visitors and users for lawful purposes. Aggregate or group data is data that describes the demographics, usage, or characteristics of our participants as a group, without revealing any personally identifiable information. By subscribing to any of services, you agree to allow us to provide such data to third parties.

We may also ask you for personally identifiable information at other times, including when you report a problem with the Website. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence, as well. From time to time, CoDec may ask users to complete surveys that we use for research or other purposes. We may also offer users the opportunity to utilize other resources, services, forms, or tools, from which we may also collect your personal information.

We will merge site-visitation data with anonymous demographic information for research purposes, and we may use this information in aggregate to provide more relevant content. In some limited-entry sections of the CoDec Entertainment Software website, with your approval, we will combine site-visitation data with your personal information in order to provide you with personalized content. If you decline permission, we will not provide you the personalized service and wont merge your personal information with site-visitation data.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

CoDec may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on CoDec Enterprises or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of CoDec and its family of Web sites, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of CoDec employees, users of CoDec products or services, or members of the public.

Control of your Personal Information
When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, CoDec will not share that information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated above.

CoDec occasionally allows other companies to offer our registered customers information about their products and services. If you do not want to receive these offers, you should state so in the comments box in that we provide in most of our service's forms.

Security of your Personal Information
CoDec Enterprises is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, CoDec cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information anywhere online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining your personal information. If you voluntarily disclose it other than in accordance with our policies, it will not be protected. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.

Protection of Children's Personal Information
The CoDec Entertainment Software website is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect any personal information from children.
