1. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
A. Purpose. Users can access limited features of this website without disclosing personal information. In order to access the entire website, users must register for an account, which will provide the registrant with full access to the website, including access to the website's forums, message boards and photo galleries.

This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis.
This paragraph just explains that information is collected from users in two ways. Some information is provided directly from you when you create an account and register on our site. Other information collected automatically through your use of our website, but such information is analyzed on an aggregate basis (personal information is removed.)
2. USE OF AND SHARING OF INFORMATION
simplify 101 collects and uses your personal information in order to operate the web sites and to provide its online and electronic services. The collection of your e-mail address, name and address during account registration enables simplify 101 to send you requested mailings or offers. Except as otherwise stated below, the personal information you provide on this site will not be shared with any third-parties, although simplify 101 reserves the right to share such information with its affiliates and subsidiaries without your permission.
simplify 101 sometimes hires other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as providing customer service, and performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies with the information that they need to provide us with such services, and we prohibit them from using that information for any other purpose.
simplify 101's websites reserve the right to disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on simplify 101 or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of simplify 101 or one of simplify 101's websites; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of simplify 101, its websites, or the public.
Our primary reason for collecting your e-mail address, name and address is to send you requested mailings or offerings and to fulfill any orders that you have placed with us. We will not share your personal information with others for marketing purposes.
3. INFORMATION SECURITY
simplify 101’s e-commerce pages (or servers) secure the private payment information you supply to us during the online ordering process. Such information is secured on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.” If you choose to create a profile on simplify 101's websites or if you choose to register for an account, you will be required to select a password. This password can be changed at any time after you first log into the service by using your current password. You must keep your password confidential and you must not share this information with anyone. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password. If you share a computer with anyone, you should always log out of the website before leaving it to prevent access to your information from subsequent users of that computer.
Orders placed on our system are done so on a secure server. This is done to protect your personal and payment information. Please do not share your passwords with anyone and if your password gets in the hands of someone else, you should immediately change it. Also, remember to log out when you’re not using our site, so others will not post content on your behalf while you’re away.
