You are not required to provide any personal information on the public areas of this website. In order to provide our full range of services, however, we may collect certain information from you. Our primary goals in collecting your information is to provide you with the products and services available through out site, to communicate with you, and to manage your registered user account, if you have one.
The types of information and the means by which we collect it are as follows:
- Information that you provide: In order to establish your account, participate in various online programs and surveys, or visit the sites of customers we host, you might be asked to provide certain personally identifiable information to us such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and phone number. If you choose to purchase products or services, you will be asked to provide a valid credit card number and expiration date along with billing and shipping address information. You can choose not to provide this information but then you might not be able to participate in some of our services or offerings.
- Web Beacons: We also place small tracker codes or "beacons" on some of the pages on our website, in online advertising with third parties, and in our e-mail. We use these beacons, in connection with cookies, to collect non-personal data on the usage of our site including but not limited to the date and time of the visit, the pages visited, the referring web page, the type of browser, the type of operating system and the domain name of the visitor's Internet service provider. This information is collected about thousands of site visits and analyzed as a whole.

We do not link IP addresses to your computer's User ID, with the following exception: when you register to a Foliolink Archive or Guestbook to track visits and prevent fraudulent resource utilization and when you place an order using our online checkout process we record your computer's IP address with your order to help us identify fraudulent credit card use. We may share this information with the financial institution that issued the credit card with which an order was placed, or with law enforcement authorities if we determine, or are notified, that the use of the credit card was fraudulent.
- User communications: When you send email or other communications to us, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.
