Generally you can visit us on the Internet without volunteering any information about yourself at all. Our web servers do collect minimal browsing information, not email addresses, about our visitors without attempting to “identify” any of them. We use this aggregate browsing information (looking at all site visits at once) to measure and improve the online information and services we provide our website visitors.
- What information we collect
- How we may share information
- How you can limit sharing of information
- If you have any questions about this please feel free to get in touch with us.
Why do we gather personal information?
The information we gather about you and your visit helps us to:
- Measure the effectiveness of the services and information we provide online
- Create a more customized user experience online
- Make improvements in our user’s online experience
- Provide limited, necessary information to specific, value-added partners–only after you’ve volunteered information for that purpose and have agreed to that next level of contact. You will not be contacted at this level without your consent.
What types of information do we gather?
Browser: We analyze our website log files to help us improve the value of the information and experience available on our website. These logs do not identify you or anyone else personally and we make no attempt to associate or link the log information with specific users that browse our website.
We receive and may store any information you enter on our Web sites or give to our Web sites in any other way. For example, we collect information you provide when you contact us with questions or comments, register with us, or participate in a promotion or survey. This information may include your name, your mailing address, your e-mail address, your phone number, along with any other information you provide to us (such as product preferences and the like). You may choose not to provide certain requested information, but then some of our website features might not be available to you.
Our web servers may automatically collect clickstream information such as the address (or “URL”) of the Web site that you came from before visiting our site, which pages you visit on our site, which browser you used to view our site and any search terms you may have entered on our site. We may also monitor the number of visitors to our website, and the average time spent on the site.
If you visit the websites of third party providers featured on or linked to by our websites, you should know that their websites may also gather similar kinds of information.
Voluntary: Occasionally we may need personal information from you (e.g., name, address, customer identification number) for product or service offerings, to conduct surveys, for contest participation, product registrations, etc. Whenever this type of information is required we will try to inform you about the purpose at the time of the collection. You will be able to elect to not provide the information but we may be limited in the types of services we can provide in that situation. No credit card or any personal financial information is stored on any of our web servers.
Automatic: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Web sites. For example, we use “cookies” (like many other Web sites). Through “cookies” we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses our Web sites. These let us “remember” information about your preferences and passwords and allow you to move within our Web sites without reintroducing yourself. “Cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser.
There are utilities designed to help you visit Web sites anonymously. You are free to do so, though we cannot provide you with a personalized experience or certain services at our Web sites if we cannot recognize you. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or how to disable cookies altogether.
What do we do with this information?
All information gathered is used to provide a richer online experience for users and to assist us in making continued improvements to our online information and services. We do not sell, rent, trade, or lease any personal information we collect.
We may share information we collect at our Web sites or offline with other current or future Linkdoggie companies. They may use this information to offer you products and services that may be of interest to you.
How do we safeguard this information?
Certain users may have online accounts that are password protected for your privacy and security. In certain areas we may use industry standard security measures (e.g., Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), etc.) to protect data transmissions.
How do I discontinue future email contacts?
If you have provided us with your e-mail address, you may receive e-mails from our Web site, as well as our other Web sites in the Linkdoggie group of companies. If you no longer want to receive marketing or promotional e-mails from As Seen On TV Video or other Linkdoggie companies, please use the unsubscribe link found near the bottom of every e-mail message you receive from As Seen On TV. Using this link will allow you to unsubscribe or change subscriber options. If you prefer, you may unsubscribe at any time by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Unsubscribe” in the subject line.
How can I update or change my information?

We may sell or buy business units or subsidiaries. If some or all of the business assets of our Web sites are sold or transferred, we generally would transfer the corresponding information regarding our customers, such as information gathered on the websites. We also may retain a copy of that information.
