Online Privacy and Security Statement
Effective Date: April 22, 2015
EmpowerOneRadio respects the privacy of every individual who visits our Web sites, responds to our interactive advertisements or sends us e-mail. This Privacy and Security Statement outlines the information EmpowerOneRadio’ will collect and how we will use that information. This Statement will also instruct you on what to do if you do not want your personal information collected or shared when you visit EmpowerOneRadio’ Web sites, respond to our Web-based advertisements or send us email.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable 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 it’s absolute.
If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can send email us at privacy@EmpowerOneRadio.com.
- Personally-Identifiable Information
EmpowerOneRadio will not collect any personally-identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. Personally-identifiable information includes your name, address, telephone number, credit card information and e-mail address.

EmpowerOneRadio has no intention of collecting any personally-identifiable information from individuals under 18 years of age. Where appropriate, EmpowerOneRadio will specifically instruct children not to submit such information on our Web sites or advertisements without consent of a parent or guardian.

We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child’s information from our existing files.
- Non-Personally Identifiable Information
In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet Browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, and the domain name of the Web site and/or Internet Service Provider from which you linked to our site or advertisement.
Similar to personally-identifiable information, we will not sell non-personally-identifiable information to third parties other than our business partners, unless we tell you we are going to do so at the time we collect the information.
When you view one of our Web sites or advertisements, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “Cookie” or similar file and will be used to determine ways to improve our Web sites, advertisements, products or services. We do link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time.
