Privacy Policy For Xarus
Your privacy is important to us.

At Xarus your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide you with our Privacy Policy so that you will understand our commitment to you and to your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes what information we may collect about you; how we use your information; how we protect it; and what choices you have on how that information is used.

When we refer to ourselves as "the site," "we," or "Xarus," we mean our entire company, including any company that we control (for example, a subsidiary that we own). We may share information among companies that we own or control, and we may share information with our co-promotion partners, and companies working with Xarus but all information we share will always be protected under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions about the Xarus Privacy Policy, the practices of this Site or your experience with Xarus, please contact the Xarus Webmaster at Xarus@Xarus.net.

Xarus may amend the Privacy Policy from time to time in its discretion. As our privacy policy changes in significant ways, we will make every effort to notify you of the changes. Minor changes to the policy may occur that will not affect our use of individually identifiable or other information. We will post privacy policy changes on our Web sites in a timely manner, and you should therefore periodically visit this web page to review the then current Privacy Policy.

Remember, you should read the Privacy Policy at each Web site that you visit after you leave one of our sites. Xarus is not responsible for how other Web sites treat your privacy once you leave a Xarus site.

Personal information we collect

Information we collect from visitors
Visitors to each of our Web sites can access the Web site's home page, and browse some areas of the site, without disclosing any personally identifiable information. We may track information provided to us by your browser, including the Web site you came from (known as the referring URL), the type of browser you use, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. On some parts of our sites, you must register to access portions of the site.

In addition, we gather information about you that is automatically collected by our Web server, such as your IP address and domain name. Xarus may use Web server and browser information to individually customize its offerings and presentations if you submit your personal information.

Information we collect when you register
Visitors registering for services on our Web sites are asked to provide identifying information, such as a user name, e-mail address, and other identifying information. On the registration screen, we clearly label which information is required for registration, and which information is optional and may be given at your discretion. Xarus obtains visitors' consent prior to collecting personally identifiable information.

Use of cookies and other tracking systems
Cookies, and log files are technologies used by Xarus to identify a user as the user moves through our Web sites. Your browser allows us to place some information (session based IDs and/or persistent cookies) on your computer's hard drive that identifies the computer you are using.

Your Web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to you. If your browser is set to reject cookies, Web sites that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the Web site, and some Web site functionality may be lost. The Help section of your browser will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies.

Although cookies do not normally contain personally identifiable information, if you have provided us information about you, we may associate your registration information with cookies or other tracking utilities our Web site places on your computer's hard drive. Associating a cookie with your registration data allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality.

How we use the information

Data
We gather aggregate data about visitors to our Web sites for service development and analysis. We may provide information from our Web sites, with identifying information removed, to third parties. When information is provided, we pool it from many individual records and strip it of any data that could be used to identify an individual before it is used. Any third party that receives aggregated data must agree not to attempt to re-identify the people it belongs to.

If we discover that a third party working on behalf of Xarus disclosed personal information about any of our visitors, we will take immediate action to prevent further occurrences.

Other than as described above, Xarus will not release personally identifiable information to a third party without your consent.

Tell-A-Friend
If you choose to use our referral function to tell a friend about our site, our site will ask you for your friend's name and email address as well as your information. The form automatically sends your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. We do not access or store this information, except while sending this invite.

Protection of information

Commitment to security
We have put in place appropriate procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.

General policies
Personally identifiable information you share with us is stored in data centers hosted by third parties. Data centers are designed to be physically secure and protected from unauthorized access by unauthorized persons. We have implemented technology and security policies, rules, and other measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction, and accidental loss. We also protect your information by requiring that all our webmasters who have access to or are associated with the processing of your data respect your confidentiality.

Xarus uses security methods to determine the identity of its registered users, so that appropriate rights and restrictions can be enforced for that user. Reliable verification of user identity is called authentication. Xarus uses both passwords and usernames to authenticate users. Users are responsible for maintaining their own passwords.

Onward transfer (transfers to third parties)
Before we will disclose information to a third party, we will provide you with notice and choice before either personal information or sensitive information is transferred. You will be given the opportunity to choose whether your personal information is (a) to be disclosed to a third party or (b) to be used for a purpose that is different from the purpose originally intended or authorized. You may loose these choices if this clause conflicts with teh Legal requirements as stated above.

Legal requirements
We may release account and other personal information when we believe release is required to comply with law. We may release personal information if, in our judgment after review by an attorney, the release is compelled by law or regulation, or if the release may be necessary to prevent the death or serious injury of an individual.

Your privacy choices
When you complete registration of your member profile, you will be given the option of receiving recurring informational e-mails from Xarus. You may opt-out from receiving this e-mail when you provide the information or contact Xarus@Xarus.net. Upon request, we will unsubscribe you from that newsletter or other programs within ten business days.
