What information do we collect? How do we use it?
When you order at our online store, we will need to know basic identification and payment method information - name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number/expiration, PayPal account, etc. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status.
When you sign up for our Electronic Gazette and new product notices, we need only an email address, which we use to send the information you requested.
We personalize your shopping experience by using your purchases to shape our recommendations about the books, add-ons, and other merchandise that might be of interest to you. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the web site.
We may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes to the Web site, new PowerBASIC.Com services, and special offers we think you'll find valuable.
Will PowerBASIC disclose the information it collects to outside parties?
No. PowerBASIC, Inc. does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. We do offer advertising space to third parties in our electronic newsletter, but no personal information is given to the third party. If you do not choose to contact them, they will not have any information about you.
