We may occasionally run, or sponsor, contests or other special promotions on our site in which we ask members or visitors for contact information (like an e-mail address) or demographic information (like a zip code, age, or income level). We use this data to send users promotional material about our company or our partners. The participant’s contact information is also used in some cases to notify winners and deliver prizes, and may be shared with other companies for promotional purposes, but only with prior permission and under the terms and conditions specified in the promotion. At any time, you may opt-out of receiving future mailings of this kind, or simply decline to take part in the promotion.
Testimonials are used to promote Heritage Makers products and services. All testimonials in which Personal Information is included are always consented to prior to posting.

You may provide information about yourself in public areas of our site, but only at your option. If provided in a public area, the data is, of course, public. Participation in public areas is at your discretion.
7. Customer Service Contact
Any communication with our customer service may be recorded to help us assist you and provide quality control.
8. Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
9. Privacy of Your Content
Our website is designed to allow members to share content. You can control who may view your content, and we will never make your content publicly accessible, except by your explicit action. Employees of Heritage Makers or other third-party service providers, however, may view your content in fulfilling your order or providing customer support. Examples of content falling under this section include photos, and creative works such as templates. Your photos and creative works will never be made publicly accessible except by your explicit action and except to fulfill your order or provide customer support.
If you provide us contact information for potential referrals, we may use the given information to contact the potential referral and provide you credit if they sign up for our service. We will not add them to a mailing list, and will not contact them further, unless they sign up for our products or services.
11. Protecting the Privacy of Children
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we do not knowingly collect or maintain information at our website from those under 13. Our website is not intended for use by children under the age of 13, and thus those under the age of 13 should not visit or sign up for an account.
12. Contacting You
The primary use of your personal information, other than directly in connection with a purchase or payment, is to efficiently provide you with personalized, relevant information. We will also use registration information to let you know about new features or other offers of interest from us and to address customer service needs and requests. For instance, we will send electronic mail or other mail to you, for the purpose of informing you of changes or additions to Heritage Makers, or of any Heritage Makers related products and services. If you do not want to receive such mailings, you may opt out at any time by using the unsubscribe link listed in the e-mail or at a preferences page we may provide. We may also send out service announcements. Since service announcements contain vital information to your account, you may not unsubscribe from service announcements.

14. IP address Information
We receive and collect browser information, cookies, and IP address information. We use this information to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site.

16. Third Parties
We will not disclose your personal information provided in connection with consultant registration or purchases, except with your knowledge and consent as described in this Privacy Statement or as may be required by law, or to protect our rights or property. Information submitted by you online (such as information about products you purchase from us, your name, address, e-mail address) may be shared with companies with which we have a commercial relationship and through which you reached Heritage Makers, for marketing purposes. For example, if you make a purchase with us because of a special offer made through another site acting as a distributor of our products, in that circumstance you will be considered their customer as well. Other circumstances where limited personal information may be disclosed are specifically described when the data is collected, or in the rules of sweepstakes or other promotions. We reserve the right to disclose aggregated user statistics, such as “45% of our users are female” or “47% of our users have attended college” in order to describe our services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties. Under protection of confidentiality agreements, Ancestry may match common user information, such as name, address and phone number with third party data to avoid duplication and prevent errors.
17. Other Websites
If you click away from Heritage Makers to visit the site of any third party advertiser or sponsor, you may be asked for your credit card or other personal information in order to purchase or use products and services offered. These companies have their own privacy and data collection practices. We have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies. You should therefore review their privacy policies carefully if you have concerns about how your information may be used.
