Your privacy is important to us. Since we want you to feel comfortable using our site, please familiarize yourself with the following policy.

We understand the sensitivity of your information and want to provide a secure environment for you; we'll make every effort to insure that the information you submit remains private.

Your use of effronassociates.com (the "Site"), hosted by Effron & Associates ("Effron") means that you agree to the terms of our policy as it is outlined below. Your use will be subject to the version that's in place when you use the Site. If you do not agree to the following terms, please do not use this Site.

We reserve the right to make additions to this policy at our discretion.

Capturing Personal Information
The following discloses the information gathering practices of the Site and our treatment of personally identifiable information that is collected or submitted when you're on our Site and using our services.

It does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to people that we do not employ.
Any personal information we capture will only be used to better tailor our services to our users' needs and will not be shared with advertisers.

In the event that Effron goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, liquidation or sale of all or a portion of its assets, our users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.

We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to applicable law, comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on Effron or the Site, protect and defend the rights or property of Effron, or investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of our Terms of Use.

In general, we gather information about all of our users collectively, such as what areas users visit most frequently and what services are accessed most. We only use such data anonymously and in the aggregate. While we reserve the right to provide aggregate data to third parties for statistical analysis, the data will not be linked to any particular individuals.

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the Site. In addition, the nature of our Site requires that users give us access to their work and contact information and other personally identifiable information.

While using this Site is completely optional, once you register and sign-in, you are not anonymous to us. We automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information and the page you requested.

In general, we will use this information for three general purposes: to customize content; to fulfill your requests for services; and to contact you about any changes to the Site.

Except as described in this Privacy Policy, Effron will not share your information with anyone unless we have asked for and received your consent to do so. However, the information you provide will also be used by the individuals and companies that use our Site to find educators and may also be used by us to contact you. In addition, we may at times employ other companies to perform functions on our behalf, including the processing of credit card payments and analyzing Site data. These companies will have access to whatever personal information is necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any third party.

If you elect to use the Site, Effron will ask that you provide personal information, such as your e-mail address or other personal identifying information.

To enhance your experience, we use a feature on your Internet browser called a cookie.

A cookie is small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a Web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.

It functions as your identification card and records user names, passwords and preferences and tracks click streams. But, it does not identify you personally and you remain anonymous unless you have otherwise provided Effron with personal information.

Cookies allow us to deliver faster service, consistent, updated results, and a more personalized experience. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. However, not accepting a cookie may hinder performance and negatively impact your Site experience.
