GE Motivation Inc. Privacy Statement

(This agreement was last updated on August 15, 2009)

GE Motivation Inc., creators of Dreams of Mine (herein after referred to as DOM) is firmly committed to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website, including DreamsOfMine.com and MotivationIncorportated.com.

The protection of your privacy being very important, we have adopted the following practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information. We will notify all registered users via email of any change to this Privacy Statement, unless you have opted-out of receiving email from us. From time to time, changes to this Privacy Statement will also be communicated on the websites.

What information will you ask me for?

When you register to use DOM you will be asked for some general identifying information which will enable us to provide you with an individualized service. We gather contact information (like your email address), demographic information (like your city of residence or age). We may share some of this information for our own research purposes with our professional advisors or consultants and third party partners, however the information shared will be limited to non-personally identifying demographic information shared under cover of a confidentiality agreement. If you choose to purchase from our Shop, we may collect financial information (like your credit card number and expiry date). We will only use this information in the course of providing our service to you.

Automatic gathering of information:

We may use your IP address (the series of numbers associated with your individual computer) to help us maintain our site and identify problems with our server. Your IP address does not disclose any personally revealing information about you.

We do use cookies to identify traffic that comes through advertising and to facilitate a more user friendly experience. Cookies are small pieces of information that a web site places on your computer's hard drive so we know it's you when you visit. This helps us to create a personalized experience for you when you visit our site. If you are uncomfortable with this, you can disable all cookies through your browser settings. At any point, you can clear all cookies associated with DOM through the Control Panel on your computer.

How will this information be used and who has access to it?

If you choose to have them sent to you, we may use your contact information to send you updates and notices. Our site provides you with the opportunity to opt-in to receiving different types of communications from us at the point where we request registration information. You may modify this choice at any time by selecting "Preferences" from your profile page. We reserve the right to use your contact information at any time to advise you of any updates that may materially affect your rights or status on our site.

Your non-personally identifying demographic information is used to personalize your experience, allow other members to find you through a search, to compose your personal and to deliver targeted advertising and promotional offers to you from us and from external companies that are of the highest relevance to your demographic profile. DOM promotional offers and service information maybe sent to your contact email from time to time as well as to your DOM mailbox. In respect of all other promotions, only your DOM mail box, and not your contact email or other contact information may be made available to other members or organizations unless you have initiated or opted in to receive information or emails from the member or organization.

The personally identifiable information we collect from you is used for internet review and to improve the content and functionality of our web server or customize the layout of our pages for each individual member. Additionally, we may, from time to time, use this information to identify other members that fit your search criteria and to contact you with the profiles of those members or to provide other members with your profile. The specific information we collect is not shared with other organizations and we will never release your personally identifiable information to an external organization without your prior consent except for the purposes of validating credit information and collecting debts. We may disclose your personally identifiable information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by operation of law, which may include, but is not limited to a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on DOM or GE Motivation Inc.

Although DOM makes use of up to date technology in order to protect your pictures and video recordings from being copied or captured by unauthorized third parties, please keep in mind that we cannot ensure complete protection.

How long do you keep the information I've given you?

We keep the information you have given us for as long as you are a member on the site or for as long as we are required to do so by law, which ever is longer.

Can I change the information I have already given you?

You can always verify or request the removal of the personally identifiable information we have collected and change your registration information by selecting "My Account" from your profile page.

Any such request may also be made by contacting the DOM Privacy Officer at the co-ordinates listed at the bottom of this page.

Do you monitor online behaviour?

Our members communicate with each other through feedback, instant messages and email. While we do not, as a rule, moderate or monitor members' private exchanges, we reserve the right to do so if we suspect users of using our service for the purpose of solicitation or any other violation of our terms of use or Privacy Statement. Member submissions that appear on the public area of the site are moderated and, if necessary, we reserve the right to edit, delete, remove or not use any communication on a public area of the site.

What security features do you have?

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) in our Shop, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Advertisers:

When you inquire about advertising opportunities on our site, you will be asked for contact information and information related to your advertising objectives. This information will be used to provide you with the business information you are seeking. Your information is only shared with internal staff and the external ad representation agencies that sell media space on the site, on our behalf. GE Motivation Inc. sites may contain links to other sites not affiliated with itself. Please note that these other sites may have privacy policies that differ from those of DOM and GE Motivation Inc. We have no control over any personal information that you provide to these sites.

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.

Associates:

When you register to become an Associate of our site, you will be asked for contact information and information related to your site. Your information will only be used by internal staff and will never be shared with anyone external to the company other than our advisors and representatives without your consent, unless required to do so by operation of law.
