THE PRIVACY AND PROTECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
This policy establishes how The '80s Server will use information we gather about you from your visit to our web site. The privacy of our customers is of utmost importance to The '80s Server.
No attempts are made to identify individual users. However, if you come to our site to read or download information, we may collect and store information for statistical purposes. For example, we may count the number of visitors to the different sections of our site to help us make them more useful to visitors.
If you contact us via e-mail or a contact program, you may be sending us personal information (e.g., name, address, e-mail address). We may store the name and address of the requester in order to respond to the request or to otherwise resolve the subject matter of your e-mail. Additionally, questions about the movies, music, culture and events of the 1980s may be used in the Ask Eddie portion of the site. If the use of the question occurs, then the sender's name ... as it appears on the e-mail ... will be used in the column. Also, any positive statements about the site may be used in promotional devices including, but not limited to, web pages and fliers. These statements will include the sender's name as it appears on the e-mail and the city of residence if it appears in the e-mail.
Your e-mail address will not be posted on the web site or used in any promotional materials.
Some of our sites require a subscription to The '80s Server to access the information. All subscribers are required to fill out a registration form. Other information which may be collected at these sites through questionnaires, feedback forms, or other means, enable us to determine a visitor's interests, with the goal of providing better service to our customers.
Only Web Marketing employees have access to personal information gathered on any of the Multi Service Corporation's commercial web sites. We further restrict employee access to information on a need-to-know basis. Username and Password combinations to secured information is changed upon the termination of anyone's employment within the Web Marketing division of the corporation. All our employees are expected to keep customer information confidential and secure. We hold our employees fully accountable for adhering to privacy standards, policies and laws.
Regardless of the information being transmitted to The '80s Server, we will protect all such information consistent with applicable law. In the ordinary course of business, we do not sell, trade, exchange or otherwise make available any personal information of our subscribers or guests to any other company or organization, provided however, that you recognize that your information is one of our assets and, as such, we may sell or transfer your information as part of a sale or other transfer of all or substantially all of our assets.

LINKS TO THIRD PARTY SITES
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements on 80s.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google
s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ("interest based targeting"). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses "non personally identifiable information". It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
Keeping your personal information safe is important, especially your credit card. When you send your account information to The '80s Server, it is sent across a Secure Socket Layer with RSA-based encryption using a VeriSign certificate (see below for definitions). This means that your information will only be read by The '80s Server.
Quick Security Definitions:
VeriSign certificate: VeriSign issues The '80s Server a unique Digital ID, assuring you of The '80s Server's authenticity and allowing communications to be encrypted for privacy. VeriSign, the word's leading Certification Authority (CA) only issues Digital IDs to legitimate companies.
SSL: Secure Sockets Layer protocol, currently the Internet standard, provides a secure channel between your web browser and The '80s Server's web server. All data is encrypted before it is sent, so no one can intercept your credit card number or personal information.
RSA: RSA is a public-key cryptosystem that offers both encryption and digital signatures (authentication).
Your personal information is also secure when you order by check. Your personal information (name, address, phone numbers, e-mail address) is sent to our home office in the same manner that a credit card number is transmitted and with the same encryption and security protocols. However, your check or money order is sent to us through the mail and is open to the same security risks as any other check or money order that you send through the mail. The '80s Server is not responsible for any loss incurred by you when you send a check or money order through the mail.
'80s Server reserves the right to change the terms, conditions, and notices under which the '80s Server Sites/Services are offered, including but not limited to the charges associated with the use of the '80s Server Sites/Services. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these terms and conditions and additional terms posted on particular web sites. Your continued use of the '80s Server Sites/Services constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions, and notices.
