Privacy Statement

This privacy statement is applicable to ASRT's website. ASRT does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from a contest or sweepstakes registration, the registration process for member services or subscription sites or services and in connection with content submissions, community postings (e.g., chat and bulletin boards), suggestions, voting/polling activities and transactional areas. Personally identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection. At such points of collection, the user will have the opportunity to indicate whether she or he would like to "opt out" of receiving promotional and/or marketing information about other products, services and offerings from ASRT and/or any third parties. Further, notwithstanding any opt out of promotional information by the user, ASRT reserves the right to contact a subscriber regarding account status, changes to the subscriber agreement and other matters relevant to the underlying service and/or the information collected. ASRT reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users who have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners. ASRT will provide only aggregated data from these analyses to third parties. Also, users should be aware that ASRT might sometimes permit third parties to offer subscription and/or registration-based services through an ASRT site. ASRT is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties and users should check the applicable privacy policy of such party when providing personally identifiable information.

Additionally, users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., user name, e-mail address) on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas of the ASRT sites, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the user's communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of ASRT

Users also should be aware that non-personal information and data might be automatically collected through the standard operation of the ASRT Internet servers or through the use of "cookies." "Cookies" are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's ongoing access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising. Cookies are not programs that come onto a user's system and damage files. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. Users should be aware that ASRT cannot control the use of cookies or the resulting information by advertisers or third parties hosting data for ASRT. If a user does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, users should note that cookies may be necessary to provide the user with certain features (e.g., customized delivery of information) available on the site.

ASRT may disclose personally identifiable information about you to Third Parties as follows: (a) with your consent; (b) to facilitate a transaction or communication with a third party that the user has initiated; (c) to ASRT’s agents and advisors (such as its accountants or attorneys); (d) as ASRT believes necessary to comply with law (including court and government orders, and civil subpoenas) or protect the rights, property, or safety of ASRT, ASRT website users, or others; or (e) if a user partakes (or ASRT reasonably suspects that a user is partaking) in any illegal or potentially illegal activity.

Upon request, ASRT will allow any user to "opt out" of further promotional contacts at any time. Additionally upon request, ASRT will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted that the user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user's request, ASRT will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.

The foregoing policies are effective as of July 13, 2007. ASRT reserves the right to change this policy at any time without notice. Users are encouraged to review this policy from time to time.
