Speedy Yellow Pages' Commitment to Online Security
Physical, electronic and managerial procedures have been employed to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information. Billing information is encrypted whenever transmitted or received online. Personal information is accessible only by staff or volunteers designated to handle online complaints or requests. All Speedy Yellow Pages agents and contractors with access to personal information obtained on the Speedy Yellow Pages web sites are also bound to adhere to this policy.
Personal Information that Speedy Yellow Pages May Collect Online
The Speedy Yellow Pages collects the following types of personal information: names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone and facsimile numbers, billing information, and complaint information. The Speedy Yellow Pages also collects information from businesses, some of which could constitute personal information, as well as personal information from individuals acting solely in their business capacity.
The Speedy Yellow Pages does not collect or maintain information from those actually known to be under the age of 13, and no part of our sites are structured to attract anyone under the age of 13.
How Speedy Yellow Pages Uses Personal Information Collected Online
Unless you consent, we will not use your personal information for any purpose other than that for which it is submitted. We use personal information to reply to inquiries, handle complaints, provide operational notices and in program record-keeping. We also process billing and business requests related to program participation. At certain points where personal information is collected on our site, there may be a box where you may indicate you would like to be on a list to receive information about other Speedy Yellow Pages programs and services. This election box only appears in places where the department collecting personal information maintains such lists. At any time you can add or remove your name from a Speedy Yellow Pages list by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We never sell or rent your personal information.
The Speedy Yellow Pages may also release personal information to appropriate governmental authorities under the following circumstances:
- Where release is required by law (for example, a subpoena) or regulation, or is requested by a government agency conducting investigations or proceedings;
- Where our records indicate a company may be engaged in fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of;
- Where warranted by a company's failure to participate in the advertising self-regulatory process or respond to an online privacy complaint, or where a company fails to honor the recommendations of the National Advertising Division, Children's Advertising Review Unit, National Advertising Review Board; or
- Where your communication suggests possible harm to others.

Our web sites also recognize the online site where a visitor "clicked-to-check" on the Speedy Yellow Pages hotlink or banner, but we cannot identify the visitor or the visitor's address. Site information is used to confirm participation in our various advertising programs, and may be used to advise participants of the numbers of visitors who come to our site from their sites. No personal information is collected.
