The privacy of those who visit our
Web site is of primary concern to PriceHot.com. We adhere to the highest ethical
standards of the industry. We automatically gather some data from everyone who
visits our site, while other information is obtained at the discretion of the
individual. Our sole purpose in doing this is to enhance the experience of
individual shoppers on PriceHot.com (for example, to tailor special offers to
our users or to survey our users about their shopping experience). Except as
noted in the next sentence, none of this information is shared with outside
parties other than companies we employ to perform functions on our behalf, to
whom limited data is given as is necessary in order to complete a shopping
transaction or to maintain our relationship with you, such as to customize our
communications with you, if you elect to receive communications. In addition,
you may elect to receive communications and special offers from other companies
we have selected based upon the goods and services they provide, in which case
we will share your contact information with these companies if you direct us to
do so. What information is gathered, how it is obtained and what it is used for

- In order to take advantage of
member services, a user has a option to complete the registration
form. During registration, users are required to give certain contact
information (such as name, email address) and create a password. This
information is used to contact users about the services on our site for
which they have expressed interest. Contact information (such as name, email
and/or mailing address) also will be shared with other PriceHot.com's family
organizations and companies if you choose to receive communications and
special offers from these companies. It is optional for users to provide
demographic information (such as gender and age) and preferences (such as
interests). However, they are encouraged to do so in order that we can
provide them a more personalized experience on our site.
Secured Purchase Information
- When a credit card order is
placed on PriceHot.com, the customer's name, billing address,
shipping address, telephone number and credit card number and expiration
date are gathered. This is used to verify payment authorization, process
your order, personalize your shopping experience, inform you of deliveries,
deliver the merchandise to the proper destination and generate statistics.
PriceHot.com takes numerous precautions to protect our users' information.
When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, the information is
protected both online and offline.
- For all purchase information,
PriceHot.com uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) underneath HTTP, providing an
encrypted channel and server authentication, so that all such information is
transmitted through a secured server connection. Before your order is
processed online, your browser will make a confirmed identification that the
transmission of all data is being made between your computer and with
PriceHot.com. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon
on the bottoms of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft
Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unˇVlocked or open, when
you are just "surfing." You can learn more about SSL at www.SSL.com.
- While we use SSL encryption to
protect sensitive information online, we also take several steps to protect
user information offline. All of our users' information, not just the
sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only
employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example,
our billing clerk or a Customer Service representative) are granted access
to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use
passwordˇVprotected screensavers when they leave their desks. When they
return, they must reˇVenter their password to regain access to user
information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept upˇVtoˇVdate on our
security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new
policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the
importance we place on privacy and what they can do to ensure our customers'
information is protected. Finally, the servers on which we store personally
identifiable information are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked

information solely to respond to your questions and comments and to improve
our customer service.
- On rare occasions it is
necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance,
if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users
an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though
they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not
promotional in nature.

packages, sending postal mail and email, analyzing data, providing marketing
assistance, processing credit card payments, conducting customer surveys, and
providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to
perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
