Important Information about Affiliate Programs
Examples of these third-party advertisements:
Except as described for "Affiliate Programs," we do not collect any private information without your knowledge. The only private information that may be collected here is your name and/or e-mail address which you may enter on our Contact Form. If you do not send us a message on our Contact Form, or if you send a message but do not request a reply, we do not have any private information about you. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you enter a good deal of private information on PayPal's secure site, and some of that is transmitted to us via e-mail.
If you choose to give us your name and/or e-mail address because you requested a reply, we use that information only to reply to your inquiry. We do not share this information with anyone. We do not send any unsolicited communications to you. We do not retain your e-mail address longer than needed to reply to your inquiry. We may retain your comments and the "screen name" you provide, if you have given us permission to use your comments, and we may later publish those comments and your "screen name" on our Web site.
Some Internet marketing experts say we're throwing money away by not using our contacts as a list of targets for additional sales promotions. We think your privacy and your dignity are more important than our marketing success, so we will not treat our visitors and subscribers as milk cows, no matter what the Internet marketing experts say. If you think an Internet business ought to be able to succeed without abusing its visitors, please support our efforts by subscribing to our newsletters, or by clicking on some of the advertisements you see on our pages and buying some of the products offered through our pages.
If you subscribe to our e-mail Gas Predictor newsletters, you must enter information on PayPal's secure server, which is subject to PayPal's privacy policies. In the case of a free subscription, you enter your information only on our site, but the information is a good deal less sensitive. (We don't ask for your credit card number, for instance.)
When you complete your transaction on PayPal, PayPal sends us an e-mail to notify us of your subscription. It includes non-personal information, such as the payment amount and the product ID that you ordered (e.g. "Atlanta Newsletter"). It also includes your name and e-mail address, which we, of course, handle as sensitive personal information.
We use this information only to fulfill your subscription. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise share your private information with anyone.
We use a third-party mass e-mail service to send your newsletters, and we have chosen them carefully. Their policies indicate that they also protect your private information, and nobody besides us can access "our" e-mail list (it's really your information, but it's our list).
And again, we use these e-mail addresses only to send your newsletters. We do not try to sell you anything else, and we do not pummel you with reminder notices when your subscription is about to expire. We send you two friendly reminders, and we leave it at that.

If you submit one or more gas saving tips to GasPredictor.com, the same General Privacy Policies described above apply to you. However, since the process of submitting tips requests additional information from you, we need to spell out exactly how we will use that information.
