1. Your IP address. An Internet Protocol address (an “IP Address”) is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. Web servers are then able to automatically identify your computer by its IP Address. SHEL may collect your IP Address to help diagnose problems with its server, administer the Site and identify its users. SHEL may also use your IP Address in conjunction with the Tracking Technologies described below for, among other things, purposes such as remembering user preferences or minimizing the need for you to re-enter information.
2. Tracking Technologies. SHEL may collect information from you that is not in the same category as the Personal Information discussed below. For example, SHEL might track information about the date and time visitors access the Site, the type of web browser they used, and the Web site from which visitors connected to the Site. As with many Web sites, SHEL may use "cookies" and/or other technology (e.g., web bugs, e-mail bugs, clear GIFs, web beacons and tracker GIFs) in the Site or in our communications with you to enhance the functionality of the Site and to make your transactions and other activities more convenient and efficient (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”). These Tracking Technologies may vary, but in some cases may involve a small file stored locally on your computer hardware, and may be used by SHEL to store and collect information relating to your viewing and use of the Site and SHEL’s correspondences with you. SHEL wants to be sure that you understand that accepting Tracking Technologies ONTO YOUR COMPUTER in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you. You may set your web browser software TO REJECT Tracking Technologies, but, if so, certain functionality of the Site may be effected. Third parties (including, but not limited to, software vendors, advertisers and fulfillment companies) may also use Tracking Technologies by or through the Site. SHEL has no control over what information such third parties track or collect, and has no responsibility or liability for any tracking, data collection or other activities of such third parties.
6. Opt-Out Right. Visitors may exercise the right to opt-out of having their Personal Information collected by SHEL, used by SHEL for secondary purposes, disclosed to third parties, or used by SHEL or third parties to send promotional correspondences to the visitor. Such opt-out rights may be exercised by contacting SHEL via postal mail at the address below or e-mail at the address above. All such correspondence must clearly identify you by name and address and must identify its purpose as the exercise of your opt-out rights. Your opt-out rights shall not apply, however, to our need to disclose information you submit to us by filling out a form to apply for employment at one of our Schools. Such information must necessarily be shared with the applicable Authorized Franchisees. The only way to prevent having this your information shared with Authorized Franchisees is to refrain from filling out an application for employment.
8. Security. The application forms that may be used on the Site (e.g., for employment applications) support encryption to help protect the security of your transfer of data to the Site. Although SHEL will take all reasonable security precautions regarding information stored on the Site, due to the open nature of the Internet, SHEL cannot guarantee that any information stored on our servers, or transmitted to or from a user will be free from unauthorized access and SHEL disclaims any liability for any theft or loss of, unauthorized access or damage to, or interception of any data or communications. By using the Site, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
