MonkeyBargains.com is strongly committed to protecting your privacy. The purpose of this document is to inform our users what information we collect and how and why we use information that we collect from people who use the MonkeyBargains.com site.
We will collect your IP address upon entry into MonkeyBargains.com. We use your IP address, domain name, and access time to help diagnose problems with our servers, and to administer our website. Your IP address is used to help identify you and to gather demographic information in order to help us better understand our customers and refine our product.
When visitors to the MonkeyBargains.com site sign up for an account to start receiving our newsletter, we ask them to tell us a little about themselves. Specifically, we ask for the user's e-mail address via a registration page. We do this so that we can e-mail our newsletter to subscribers; we feel this is a vital part of our service and thus find it necessary to ask for user e-mails. We also may use subscribers' e-mails to contact users and provide updates regarding MonkeyBargains.com and to send user promotional material and information provided to us by our business partners. Users may, at any time, opt out of receiving future mailings. See opt out section below. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data for internal analysis and to share with other companies the profile of our customers. Only the user's email address is required information to receive the e-mail newsletter. Any additional fields on the registration form are optional and will not affect whether or not you will receive the newsletter.
During the MonkeyBargains.com registration process, you may have the opportunity to opt-in to offers and specials from some of our third-party partners. In these cases, we will provide our partners with some or all of the information that you provided during registration. The decision whether or not to accept these offers is completely voluntary, and has no affect on your MonkeyBargains.com service.
MonkeyBargains.com will not share or sell to third parties any individual information users provide us without the explicit consent of our users. This insures that users won't receive junk mail or third-party unsolicited e-mail as a result of signing up for our service. The only e-mail users will get as a result of signing up for MonkeyBargains.com' services is from MonkeyBargains.com (although we sometimes send information for advertisers at the end of our own e-mails). We may, however, share aggregate information with third parties, in order to tell them more about our users. For example, we may tell potential advertisers that 30 percent of our users are between the ages of 18 and 30 (this statistic is an example only, not a real statistic and we occasionally conduct voluntary e-mail surveys of our users to acquire these facts); but we will not give an advertiser a list of e-mail addresses, or tell them personal information about individual users.
Within the MonkeyBargains.com site and newsletter, you will have the opportunity to participate in online surveys and contests, which may ask visitors for contact information (like their email address) and demographic information (like their zip code, age, or income level). We use contact data from our surveys and contests to contact visitors and to send the visitor promotional material and information from some of our business associates. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. The full contest rules to our current sweepstakes can be found at http://www.MonkeyBargains.com/contestrules.

Cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to find out the identity of any visitor. We will only store information provided voluntarily. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk. However, cookies tell us nothing about you personally unless you specifically give us additional information. These cookies are not used to personally identify your surfing patterns, and disabling them will not affect the service.
