We understand that providing personal information online involves a great deal of trust on your part; we take this trust very seriously, and make it a high priority to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personally identifiable information ("personal information") you provide us.

This OnPhile Privacy Policy discloses the personal information privacy practices for Pearl Communications, a division of The Pearl Group, Inc.

Other Information We Collect About You

Some information may be collected automatically every time you visit our Site. This information is described below.


Cookies and other Web technologies

When you access our Site as a Member, Dealer or visitor, we may collect information about your computer and assign you a "cookie" (a small, unique identifier text file). You do not provide this information -- it is collected automatically as a means of supporting your use of our Site. The cookie assigned may be a “session” cookie file (deleted at the end of the session) or permanent cookie file on your computer's hard drive. The cookie may or may not contain any personal information. You can always choose to not receive a cookie file by enabling your web browser to refuse cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie. Be advised that, by refusing to accept a cookie, you may not be able to access some services offered by us on our Site.

A cookie file may also be placed on your hard drive by a third-party advertising company, which may be used to aggregate statistics about your visits to this Site and other web sites. The company may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of ads. This is primarily accomplished through the use of an action tag (also known as an invisible gif), which the third party places on our Site to collect anonymous information. They may use this anonymous information about your visits to this Site and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about products and services of potential interest to you.

Additionally, you may encounter "cookies" or other similar devices on certain pages of our Site that are placed there by third parties. For example, if you view a Listing that has content created by a Member of or Dealer on OnPhile, there may be a "cookie" placed within that content. We do not control the use of cookies by third parties.

If you use a web site providing a service for us or a web site that helps facilitate your activity on our Site, that web site may provide personal information about you and your transactions back to us. Similarly, web sites that we partner with may also provide personal information about you back to us.

This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies and other technology by us with respect to our Site only and does not cover the use of cookies and other technology by any Members of or Dealers on OnPhile, advertisers or other third parties. For more information about the privacy practices of Members, Dealers, advertisers and third parties, please review the privacy policy for the Members, Dealers, advertisers or third parties.

This information is collected from your computer's Web browser and may include your IP address, operating system, web browser software (e.g., Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer), screen resolution, internet service provider, clickstream data, date/time stamp, and referring/exiting web sites. Wireless users (if you are using your cellular phone to access the Internet) should check with their wireless company to understand whether personal information may be used to identify them.


Use of Your Information

Information collected by us may be used to:
• Register you as an OnPhile Member or Dealer

• Send e-mail notifications for special promotions
• Respond to your questions or suggestions

Information collected when you complete your Member Contact Information or Dealer Contact Information is used to confirm and process your Membership or Dealership account, respectively. In addition, information collected from you when you register as a Member or Dealer is used to bill your credit card, if applicable, which enables you to post a Listing and use the Member or Dealer features on our Site, respectively.


Access to Membership / Dealership Account

When you access your Membership or Dealership account, we use your information (Member User Name or Dealer User Name and password) as a security measure to be sure that you have authorized the access to your Membership or Dealership account, respectively.

When you post a Listing on our Site, or express interest in Listings placed by other users of our Site, we may use your information to identify you for purposes of facilitating transactions between you and the other users of our Site.


E-mail Notifications

If you choose to receive communications from us about special promotions, we may use your e-mail address to send you communications about surveys, contests, sweepstakes, promotions, specials, or other opportunities on our Site and our partners’ web sites.
We may contract a reputable third-party to facilitate the distribution of survey, promotion, or sweepstakes programs. Upon completion of these projects, we require that the third-party return all information to us.


Responses to Your Questions or Suggestions

We will use your e-mail address, address and/or telephone number to respond when you submit a question or suggestion, or request assistance with logging onto the Site or accessing your Membership or Dealership account.


Improving the Quality of Your Visit to Our Web Site

We may collect information about your computer (not your name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number) through your permanent cookie file for the purpose of assessing the effectiveness of Site content and traffic. This data allows us to improve the quality of your visit by streamlining your ability to navigate the Site and develop featured programs and content that will be of interest to our Members, Dealers and Site visitors. In addition, we use information collected from your computer, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users’ movements around the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.


Sharing of Your Information

OnPhile does not sell or rent your personal information to anyone.


Corporate affiliates

We may share your personal information among our subsidiary, parent, and affiliated organizations, but the information will be used by them for internal purposes only. It is possible that we, our subsidiaries, affiliates, joint ventures, business assets, or any combination of these, could merge with or be acquired by another business entity. Should such a combination or result occur, you should expect that all of your personal information will be transferred to the merging or acquiring business entity. We cannot assure, however, that the new entity will follow the practices disclosed in this Privacy Policy.


Member / Dealer Transactions

When you request information about a Listing on our Site, we provide the personal information you give us to the OnPhile Member or Dealer who posted that Listing. This information is provided to them so that they can directly provide you with the information you have requested for purposes of conducting a transaction if you choose to do so. Although we have attempted to limit our Members and Dealers from using or disclosing your personal information beyond the scope needed to accomplish the purposes for which it is given, we cannot assure that such limits will be observed by the Members and Dealers. Therefore, we encourage you to review the information privacy practices of any Member or Dealer from whom you request Listing information on our Site. In addition, these Members and Dealers may also contact you to obtain additional information about you or your request for information.


Registration for Membership / Dealership

We request that you provide us with certain personal information, including your name and credit card information when you register to become a Member of or Dealer on our Site. This information is not, however, collected or retained by us. Instead, it is collected by paypal.com, an independent web site that actually processes the registration for Membership or Dealership and payment for the Membership or Dealership using your credit card information. As a result, our Privacy Policy does not apply to such information, and we recommend that you review the Privacy Policy for paypal.com.


Other Sharing of Information

We may occasionally share aggregated information with our Members, Dealers and service providers. This information does not contain any personal information and is used to develop featured programs and content that will be of interest to our Members, Dealers and Site visitors.


Our Legal Obligations

We may be required by law or legal process to disclose personal information and other information you have provided us in your use of our Site or related services. We may also disclose information to enforce the Terms of Use, as well as to protect us and/or our Members, Dealers and users against someone who poses a threat to our interests (such as customer fraud) or whose activities could bring harm to others. As a result, we may, in our discretion, disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose you or us to legal liability. We may also disclose any information about you that may be required by a court or tribunal or through some other proper legal process. Some of these rights to disclose information are further described in the Terms of Use that govern use of our Site.


Other Web Sites

There are several places throughout our Site that may link you to other web sites that do not operate under our information privacy practices. When you click through to these web sites, our information privacy practices no longer apply, and we are not responsible for use or disclosure of information obtained from you through such web sites. We recommend that you examine the privacy statements for all third party web sites to understand their procedures for collecting, using, and disclosing your information.


Public Forums

The Site may include interactive forums, such as message boards and chat rooms. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information; you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information in these forums.


Other Disclosures

We cannot ensure that all of your private communications and personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or they may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from our Site. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
