Information Collection and Use
Information Collection
NeighborhoodInc.Org is the sole owner of the information collected on our site. NeighborhoodInc.Org collects and monitors information from our users at several different points on our Web site.
In order to use this Web site, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give contact information (such as, but not limited to, name and email address). We use this information to contact the user about services on our site for which he has expressed interest. Users will also be required to create a username and password. While important to the concept of NeighborhoodInc.Org, it is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as income level and gender), although encouraged so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site. Please safeguard your password and other personal information. You may be liable for unauthorized use of our web site, as well as have your private information used by others.
We request information from the user on our member sign-up form and/or payment form. A user must provide contact information (such as, but not limited to, name and email,) and billing information (such as but not limited to, credit card number, expiration date). Currently, this "billing" information is taken care of through a payment gateway and not this site. If we have trouble processing a membership, the information is used to contact the user. We may decide to store some of this information on our site to make your future visits quicker.
Unless you opt-out, you give NeighborhoodInc.Org permission to use your information as per this privacy policy.
While NeighborhoodInc.Org will make every effort possible to protect your privacy, we do not promise, nor should you expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private. This will include parties who attempt to illegally enter our web site and intercept or access transmissions or private communications.

Information Use
We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third parties to create a profile of our users. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that details their viewing preferences. Consequently, collected information is tied to the users personally identifiable information to provide offers and improve the content of the site for the user. This profile is used to tailor a user's visit to our Web site, to produce internal, private company reports, and to direct pertinent marketing promotions to them. We do not share your profile with other third parties, unless specifically mentioned in this agreement.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user's hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions. [Provide a link to information on cookies.]
Cookies will be used on our site to remember your user name and password. By selecting or checking the remember me box at the log in page, users would not have to log in a username and/or password more than once, thereby saving time in the log in process. Persistent cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. See the "Profile" section.
Some of our business partners (if applicable) use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies. These parties use of cookies are subject to their own set of privacy policies.
Third Party Advertising
When we offer third party advertising, there is some information that is given to these advertisers. Information about users' visit to this site, such as number of times they have viewed an ad (but not user name, address, or other personal information), is used to serve ads to users on this site. For more information about third party advertisers, cookies, and how to "opt-out", please contact us at Info@NeighborhoodInc.Org
This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by NeighborhoodInc.Org only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.
Log Files
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes, but is not limited to, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
We may also employ [or our third party advertising company may employ] a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. The main difference between the two is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
Clear Gifs can "work with" existing cookies on a computer if they are both from the same Web site or advertising company. That means, for example, that if a person visited "", which uses an advertising company's clear gif, the Web site [or advertising company] would match the clear gif's identifier and the advertising company's cookie ID number, to show the past online behavior for that computer. This collected information would then be given to the advertising company [or Web site].
In addition, we reserve the right to use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If users would like to opt-out of these emails, please see the Opt-out section.

This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information, that information is encrypted and is protected with robust encryption software- SSL.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is in restricted office space. Only individuals who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment.
While we take security very seriously, we cannot guarantee that your information will not be stolen by third parties. We will notify you immediately upon learning of any compromise of your personal information.
If users have any questions about the security at our Web site, users can send an email to Info@NeighborhoodInc.Org
Supplementation of Information
In order for this Web site to properly fulfill its obligation to users it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources.
ID [Address] Verification
We may use third party ID verification software to verify a user's identity and address to help keep this site a safe place to visit and use.
Enhancement of Marketing Profile
We may purchase third party marketing data and add it to our existing user database to better target our advertising and provide pertinent offers we think our users would be interested in. We use this information to enhance or overlay the 'profile' of individual users. This aggregate marketing data is therefore tied to the users' personally identifiable information.
Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or deactivate users' personally identifiable information.

We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, or deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted (except as listed in this policy), nor will their personal information be used in this new manner. All remaining credits are lost if you opt out of all communications. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also email users who have opted not to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
