The Internet is rapidly changing the way we communicate and interact. While the

What Information is Collected?
You may be asked at various times to provide data such as your name, e-mail address
and phone number (the "Personally Identifiable Information"), as well
as information about what you like or do not like about the Website. Advanced Developers.Net
collects Personally Identifiable Information online primarily to make it easier
for you to use the Website, to allow us to improve our website and our services,
and for us to communicate with you. Advanced Developers.Net will collect additional
information about you before you can purchase an item from the Advanced Developers.Net
Store. We collect and store such information as is necessary to process your purchase,
fulfill your order, and improve the operation of our store
Our data collection policies are intended to allow you to choose how much Personally
Identifiable Information provided to us. Our goal is to provide you with a satisfying
Information collected online is often defined as being either anonymous or personally
- Anonymous Information refers to information that cannot easily be tied back to a
specific individual. For instance, we may know that 10,000 people visit this Privacy
Policy page today, but we do not necessarily know their names, where they live,
or their date of birth.
- Personally Identifiable Information tells us who you are. We may need this information
to provide personalized or enhanced service that you request. We also need Personally
Identifiable Information and to maintain your store account once you choose to establish
one and to process orders you place at the Advanced Developers.Net Store. While
we hope that you will find it beneficial to judiciously provide Personally Identifiable
Information so that we can provide the best practical service to you, the amount
of Personally Identifiable Information that you choose to disclose is a decision
- When you surf the Internet, your Internet browser automatically transmits some information
to Advanced Developers.Net every time you access our Website. Examples of such information
include the URL of the Web page you were just on (known as the "Refer"),
the IP (or Internet Protocol) address of the computer you are using, and the browser
version you are using to access our site. Some of this information may be collected
by Advanced Developers.Net to help us improve our Website and our services. For
instance, we may use this information to ensure the content you request is presented
in the best format.
- To activate some of the features available within the Website, we may assign "cookies"
to your Internet browser. On our system, a cookie is a small text file that contains
a unique identification number stored on your computer. This unique identification
number automatically identifies your browser to our server computers when you interact
with our Website. When you agree to provide Personally Identifiable Information
directly to us, such as through registering at the Advanced Developers.Net Store,
we will assign cookies that identify you, personally, to our servers.
- What organization is collecting the information?
The data you provide is collected by Advanced Developers.Net, or by our vendor in
the case of the Advanced Developers.Net Store. Some areas of our Website read data
that creates, or has created, an Anonymous Profile. Other areas, such as the Advanced
Developers.Net Store, require you to register or login before you can purchase an
item. These areas read and store Personally Identifiable Information that specifically
identifies you to our servers. The Advanced Developers.Net Store requires you to
provide Personally Identifiable Information through registration before you can
place an order.
Special Note for persons under 18 years old: The Advanced Developers.Net Store does
not sell items to anyone under the age of 18. Nor are persons under 18 years old
eligible to use any Advanced Developers.Net Website feature that collects Personally
Identifiable Information. If you are under 18 years old and wish to purchase an
item from the Advanced Developers.Net Store or use a Website feature that requests
Personally Identifiable Information, you must do so through a parent or guardian.
- How will the Anonymous Profile Information be used?
Below is a description of some of the uses of the information that we collect and
how our users benefit from these actions:
We try to pay attention to what our users use and do not use on our Website, and
we modify our content appropriately. Many of the pages in our Website collect Anonymous
Profile Information. The creation of an anonymous profile allows Advanced Developers.Net
to identify the information that users find most useful. We may use these anonymous
profiles to improve our Website's content and format, and our company’s services.
This is essential to our ability to provide high quality content to you.
- How will the Personally Identifiable Information be used?
The Advanced Developers.Net Store will collect and store Personally Identifiable
Information once you register for an on-line account at the store. This includes
primary contact information including a valid email address, information about your
identity, shipping information, and other personal information as requested by the
forms on our Website. When you purchase an item, we collect additional billing and
credit card information if you have not provided that information during the registration
process. We use this information to verify your identity and to bill you for your
Other areas of our Website may require that you provide Personally Identifiable
Information to use a Website feature. We may use this information for internal research
regarding the use of our Website and to facilitate the feature you choose to use.
To the extent possible, we indicate the informational fields that are required to
purchase an item, register, or to use a feature we offer. You have the option of
not providing this information to us by choosing not to purchase an item, not registering,
or not using the related feature of our Website.
If you correspond with us through letters or email messages, we may store such correspondence
with whatever other information you have provided to us. By submitting such correspondence,
you agree that we may contact you in response.
In addition to the uses described in this section, Advanced Developers.Net will
use the Personally Identifiable Information you provide to us and information we
collect about your use of our Website to improve access to our Website, improve
the content and organization of our Website, revise the items in the Advanced Developers.Net
Store, resolve disputes, and correct technical problems with the Website.
- What information will we distribute?
Advanced Developers.Net’s policy is to retain Personally Identifiable Information
you submit to us, only for our use and that of our affiliated companies (including,
our vendor in the case of the Advanced Developers.Net Store). We do not sell your
Personally Identifiable Information to third parties. But although we use industry
standard hardware and software designed to protect your privacy, we cannot guarantee—and
you should not expect—that the Personally Identifiable Information you submit to
us will always remain confidential.
If you register with our Website, either at the Advanced Developers.Net Store or
elsewhere, you will be required to choose a user name and a password (when you register
at the Advanced Developers.Net Store, your user name will be your primary email
address). You are responsible for protecting the confidentiality of both. Should
you allow another to access our Website through your user name and password, Advanced
Developers.Net will assume that you are accessing our Website and you will be responsible
for all actions taken in your name. By using our Website, you accept responsibility
for all activity undertaken in your name.
If you register with us, you will have the option of accessing and changing your
password. You may also change certain other information you provided to us. If you
have any questions, send an email message to email@example.com.
Our server computers may retain whatever Personally Identifiable Information you
have provided to us, and such data could potentially be made available for distribution
to third parties as required by law, such as to law-enforcement agencies or pursuant
to subpoenas or other court orders. Advanced Developers.Net may also share both
Anonymous Profile Information and Personally Identifiable Information to investigate
allegations of fraud or other unlawful activities, civil offenses, and violations
of our Terms and Conditions of Use. In such case, Advanced Developers.Net shall
have no obligation to notify you of, or to decline, any appropriately documented
request for Personally Identifiable Information or Anonymous Profile Information.
This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the Advanced Developers.Net
Websites. Advanced Developers.Net does not control the information collection and
distribution policies on Internet domains other than on Advanced Developers.Net
Internet domains. As a service to our users, the Advanced Developers.Net Website
may provide links to other sites. Advanced Developers.Net is not responsible for
the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage all users to read the privacy
statements of each and every Website.
- What choices are available regarding collection, use, and distribution of the information?
We encourage you to share information only with those websites that provide true
value to you in exchange for your information and that commit to privacy practices
that are acceptable to you. We believe that Advanced Developers.Net's websites
provide such value, but it is ultimately your choice to share Personally Identifiable
Information with Advanced Developers.Net.
While Advanced Developers.Net does not sell any Personally Identifiable Information
you submit to our Website to any other parties, Advanced Developers.Net reserves
the right to use such information for any lawful purpose, including but not limited
to recruiting, marketing, performance monitoring and statistical analysis.
Advanced Developers.Net reserves the right to update this policy. When we do, we
will send an announcement by email to the primary email address of each registered
user or by placing a notice on our Website.
Advanced Developers.Net also reserves the right to send registration confirmations,
Service Alerts and similar messages to our users to inform them of specific changes
that may impact their ability to use our Website, regardless of such users'
e-mail contact opt-in status. Advanced Developers.Net retains these rights because
we may need the right to contact you as a matter of law or regarding matters that
may be important to you.
