Efficio, Inc. will have a non-exclusive world-wide license to publish the content submitted by users and contributors within Efficio.biz.

In developing this policy, Efficio, Inc. is committed to doing all that we can to protect and ensure the privacy of our visitors. This document is meant to provide answers to some areas of potential concern.
Personally identifiable information Efficio, Inc. collects and how it is used:
From time to time, Efficio, Inc. may ask you for personal information. Voluntary submission of such information may be in relation to taking part in polls or surveys, entering contests or other promotions, participating in our message boards and/or chat sessions.
Efficio, Inc. may also keep a record if you contact us by e-mail, purely for the purpose of responding to your message. In addition, we collect and store statistics and other information about the online activities of Efficio.biz visitors on an aggregated (collective) basis. This may include such information as tracking which features are used most often, where visitors spend the longest period of time in the site, how many pages of the site are viewed per visit, etc. However, such measurements are not conducted on a personally identifiable basis.
Visitors should also note that Efficio.biz will regularly provide links to advertisers, sponsors, partners, and other additional sources of information. Efficio.biz is not in control of the privacy policies of these sites. Therefore, anyone concerned should consult the policy of the site in question.
How we use and disclose your personal information:
The primary use of the personal information you supply is to make Efficio.biz a more useful and enjoyable experience for our members. This includes using the information to help guide our development efforts.
As a general practice, we do not sell any personally identifiable information to third parties. Also, in some cases Efficio.biz will be using your personally identifiable information to provide information to you such as newsletters or notification of debut of new features, in accordance with your request.
What choices are available to you regarding the collection, disclosure and distribution of your information:
You can always choose whether or not to disclose information through Efficio.biz. You may also “opt-out” of permitting any sharing of your personal information, as well as choose not to continue receiving any e-mail notifications (including newsletters) from Efficio.biz at any time by sending us an e-mail at email@example.com.
Who has access to your personally identifiable information:
The individually identifiable information that you provide will be used extensively within Efficio.biz to provide a personalized experience to you. It will also be shared with certain Efficio.biz partners that provide some of the personalized content on our site and other third parties unrelated to offerings on Efficio.biz, but only if you have explicitly provided your permission.
Other companies placing advertising on our site may collect information about you when you view or click on their advertising or content. Efficio.biz does not control the collection of such information. You should contact these advertisers or content providers directly if you have any questions about their use of this information.
Efficio.biz will not disclose your personally identifiable information without your permission unless we need to do so in order to comply with applicable law, a subpoena, or other legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Efficio.biz does not sell or rent individually identifiable information about its users to any third party without first receiving the user’s permission. If Efficio.biz intends to share your personal information with a third party, we will notify you before doing so, and you will have the opportunity to prevent this transfer. You can also elect not to use certain services or participate in certain promotions if you do not want your information shared with third parties (with notification always provided when this may occur).
What cookies are and how they are used:
As with many other sites on the web, at Efficio.biz we use “cookies” to let visitors enjoy our services more easily, and to let us keep track of certain statistical information that helps us improve our site.
However, Efficio.biz does not require users to accept cookies in order to enjoy the site. You can set your browser to reject cookies, or to notify you when Efficio.biz sends you a cookie.
What are cookies?
Cookies, which are small text files recorded in a user’s hard drive, are employed by thousands of sites to enhance user’s Web viewing experience. Cookies cannot damage user files, nor can they read information from a user’s hard drive. Cookies allow sites and advertisers to “remember” users across pages of a site and across multiple visits to a site. This feature enables e-commerce and Internet advertising in numerous ways, including:
Allowing personalization features such as stock portfolio tracking and targeted news stories
Allowing shopping sessions and quick navigation across multiple zones of e-commerce sites
Remembering user names and passwords for future visits
Controlling ad frequency or the number of times a user sees a given ad
And, delivering advertisements targeted to a user’s interests
Why shouldn’t I opt-out of this cookie?
Efficio.biz believes all users should have a positive Web experience. Because of this belief, we allow advertisers to control the frequency (the number of times) a Web user sees an ad banner. We also deliver advertising based on a user’s interests if that user has chosen to receive targeted advertising. We believe that frequency control, and relevant content makes advertising on the Web less intrusive by insuring that users are not bombarded with repeat and irrelevant ad messages. Opting-out removes our ability both to control frequency of exposure to individual users and to increase the level of relevant content.
As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers
Security: Efficio, Inc.’s list service provider (“Service Provider”) uses security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of information under our control. We store information in databases located in secured data centers with live personnel monitoring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Data security is paramount, and our Service Provider is constantly re-evaluating and deploying, where appropriate, the latest technologies, including Secure Socket Layer encryption and firewalls, to enhance our security and the confidentiality of personal information.
Children: This Web Site is intended for use by persons 18 years old or older. Efficio, Inc. does not knowingly collect personal information about children under the age of 13.
