Privacy Policy
TekWorks ensures that the personal information of its partners’ end users will be kept safe and confidential. The following is TekWorks Privacy Policy:

Handling of Personal Information
Users of TekWorks services are sometimes required to enter personal information during the “sign up” process to obtain access to TekWorks services. TekWorks may host its partners’ “registration page” and the information entered into that page by the end user. Online registration forms require users to provide contact information (such as name and e-mail address), demographic information (such as zip code, age or income level), and may solicit some optional information (such as level of education). TekWorks, in conjunction with its partners, uses this information to deliver more relevant content and services and provide users with a personalized Web experience.Demographic and profiling data is collected to tailor the user experience by presenting relevant content according to user preferences. This information is shared with TekWorks’s partners only on an aggregate basis in order to better understand the group demographics. For instance, “35% of the users are between the ages of 24 to 35.”TekWorks may also disclose some of this aggregate information and user statistics pursuant to confidentiality agreements in order to describe its services to current and prospective partners and sponsors.TekWorks may use the information collected to occasionally notify users about important functionality changes to the site, new services, promotions and special offers. TekWorks may also use e-mail addresses and other personal information to respond to users who communicate with them. If users choose to correspond with TekWorks through e-mail, TekWorks may retain the content of the correspondences, the e-mail addresses and its responses.TekWorks reserves the right to disclose its users’ personal information when required by law, or to protect the rights or property of TekWorks.

Security Procedures
TekWorks ensures that end user personal information is handled securely and in accordance with the TekWorks Terms of Service and this Privacy Policy. TekWorks has implemented a variety of security measures, including containing all personal information behind its secured server network and limiting its accessibility to a limited number of authorized persons who have special access rights to such systems.TekWorks’s site uses cookies to deliver content specific to end user interests and, with user permission, to save passwords to prevent the need for users to re-enter their password each time they visit the site. TekWorks uses end users’ IP addresses to help diagnose problems with its server, and to administer its Web site. IP addresses are also used to help identify end users and gather broad demographic information. If a user misplaces or forgets a password, TekWorks will only send reminders after appropriate security questions have been correctly answered.

Self-Protection
Users should take steps to ensure the privacy of their information. Users should:

Be aware of the risks of voluntarily disclosing personal information online and educate themselves and their children.
Use complex passwords, change passwords regularly, and never disclose their password, or allow their children to disclose their password, to anyone.
Keep in mind that whenever personal information is voluntarily disclosed, for example on message boards, through e-mail, in chat areas or on Web sites that do not respect users’ privacy, that information can be collected and used by others. If users post personal information online that is accessible to the public, they may receive unsolicited e-mail messages known as “spam” from other parties in return. TekWorks has strict rules prohibiting spam and blocks certain known persons from sending spam to TekWorks users.
Remember that they are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of their password and/or any account information.
Look for a privacy policy on every Web site they visit on the Internet and search for information on how to protect themselves or their children’s privacy. Users should start with TRUSTe (www.truste.org) which is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to building users’ trust and confidence on the Internet.
