Why we collect personal information and
what we do with it
Regular access to our Web site to review our services does not require
you to register personal information.
When you wish to purchase any of our Metronome Marketing products or services
our registration form requires you to give us contact information (name,
company name, title, address, phone, fax and email address). We use customer
contact information from the registration form in two ways:
1. To send you information about our company and its
2. To contact you from time to time (to make special
offers for instance). Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings;
see the choice/opt-out section below.
None of the personal or business information you give us is shared with
anyone other than our trusted partners (e.g.: our bank) unless required
by law or if you have breached our service agreement (see next section).
Information in the aggregate (e.g.: demographic studies) may be shared
with others in order to offer improved services. To pay for products and
services we may collect your financial information (e.g.: account or credit
card numbers). Financial information that is collected is used to bill
for products and services - with your prior approval.
To purchase Metronome Marketing products or services you will be asked
to provide credit card information for the purchase. During the credit
card process, we will ask for your name, credit card account number, name
on your credit card, and expiration date.
CREDIT CARD INFORMATION
To pay for products and services we might ask for credit card information.
We transmit that credit card information in an encrypted format. We use
industry-standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
Real time authorization, capture and execution of credit card purchases
are performed over the Internet via ClickBank. In addition to checking
for a valid credit card number, the system verifies the billing address
to help reduce fraud. Metronome Marketing uses ClickBank to provide a
secure connection with the client. ClickBank is a leader in SSL providers,
and the Metronome Marketing SSL certificate comes with the VeriSign NetSure
Protection Plan, which provides up to $100,000 of protection against economic
loss due to theft, impersonation, corruption or loss of use of an ID.

violating Metronome Marketing's User Agreement or may be causing injury
to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Metronome
Marketing’s rights or property, our customers, clients, suppliers
or partners, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
