1. What personally identifiable information does Snapperhead Inventions collect from me?

Snapperhead Inventions collects information in several ways. Some personal information is gathered when you register or open an account. During registration, Snapperhead Inventions may ask for your name, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, industry or personal interests. The more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we are able to customize your experience.

In addition, we may ask you for personal information at other times, including (but not limited to) when you enter a sweepstakes, contest or promotion sponsored by Snapperhead Inventions and/or one of our partners; when you make a purchase from Snapperhead Inventions; when you subscribe to newsletters, catalogs or other publications; or when you report a problem with our services. If you contact Snapperhead Inventions we may keep a record of that correspondence. Snapperhead Inventions also occasionally asks users to complete surveys that we use for research purposes. Whenever Snapperhead Inventions collects personal information we make an effort to include a link to this Policy on that page.

You understand that any information, image, video, picture, or other material included in any User Content that you post on this web site shall be considered publicly available and is not considered protected personally identifiable information subject to this Policy. Any User Content can be viewed, collected and used by others.

3. How does Snapperhead Inventions use my information?

Snapperhead Inventions’s primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with an efficient browsing experience. This includes personalization services, interactive communications, online shopping, targeted advertisements, and other services. Advertisers give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience they want to reach (for example, males over 35 years old). Snapperhead Inventions takes the advertisement and displays it to users meeting those criteria. In this process, the advertiser never has access to individual account information. Only Snapperhead Inventions has access to individuals’ accounts. This kind of advertisement targeting also is done with banner ads. You will only receive special offers via email from Snapperhead Inventions if you have indicated in your account preferences that you would like to receive them. You can change your account preferences at any time.

Snapperhead Inventions may research our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us upon registration, during a promotion, from our server log files or from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. Snapperhead Inventions may share this aggregated data with advertisers or business partners.

4. Who is collecting information?
