If you choose to register with DrillSheet.com, we require you to submit Personally Identifiable Information. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personally Identifiable Information you submit to DrillSheet.com.

Cookies

Like many websites, DrillSheet.com uses “Cookies”. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your web browser on your computer’s hard drive. They enable the website to recognize you as a repeat user of the website. We collect Non-Personal Information about your use of our Website and your use of the Web sites of selected sponsors and advertisers through the use of Cookies. The information collected by Cookies helps us to:
  • Dynamically generate advertising and content on Web pages or in newsletters.
  • Statistically monitor how many people are using our Website and selected sponsors’ and advertisers’ sites.
  • Determine how many people open our emails.
  • Understand for what purposes these actions are being taken.
We may use Cookie information to target certain advertisements to your browser or to determine the popularity of certain content or advertisements. Cookies are also used to facilitate a user’s log-in, as navigation aides and as session timers.

Most browser software can be set to reject Cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject Cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar.

Information Collected by Third Parties Not Acting on DrillSheet.com’s Behalf

Sponsors or advertisers on the DrillSheet.com Website may use their own cookies, web beacons or other online tracking technologies in the banner advertisements served on the DrillSheet.com Website and in emails, special promotions or newsletters we send you. Some advertisers use companies other than DrillSheet.com to serve their ads and to monitor users’ responses to ads, and these companies (“Ad Servers”) may also collect Non-Personal Information through the use of Cookies or Web Beacons on the DrillSheet.com Website. In certain situations, information collection may be facilitated by momentarily directing your browser to the Website of an Ad Server or other third party acting on behalf of the sponsor, partner, or advertiser before re-directing your browser to its selected destination (e.g., back to the DrillSheet.com Website to show the ad, or to the advertiser’s website); this re-direction process will not be apparent to you.

We do not control these third parties’ use of Cookies or Web Beacons, or how they manage the non-personal information they gather through them. However, we do require sponsors, advertisers and ad servers who collect cookie or web beacon information through the DrillSheet.com Website to agree that they will not collect any Personally Identifiable Information from our site without your consent. They have promised us they will not link any non-personal Cookie or Web Beacon information collected by them on our site to Personally Identifiable Information they or others collect in other ways or from other sites except as may be described in connection with a particular program. You should review the privacy policy of other sites you visit or link to from the DrillSheet.com Website to understand how these other sites use cookies and how they use the information they collect through the use of cookies or web beacons on their own sites. Certain Ad Servers allow you to prevent them from collecting data through the use of cookies. In order to do so, you must opt-out of such data collection with each individual site. Currently, you can Opt-out of Cookies for several Ad Servers by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative gateway Opt-out site. This website will also allow you to review the Ad Server’s privacy policies.

Disclosure of Your Information

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy or as specifically agreed to by you, DrillSheet.com will not disclose any Personally Identifiable Information it gathers from you on our website. We may only release Personally Identifiable Information to third parties:
  • When we, acting in good faith, believe that we are required to do so in order to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order.
  • In special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others, to protect property or defend or assert legal rights.
In the event that we are legally compelled to disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to a third party, we will attempt to notify you unless doing so would violate the law or court order. In addition, we may disclose Personal Information as described below.

Disclosure to Linked Sites

In addition to the Third Party Contractor Web sites that you may access as described above, for your convenience, there are links to Third Party Web sites operated by companies that are not affiliated with the DrillSheet.com Website and that do not have contracts to provide content or services through the DrillSheet.com Website. These links may be found in advertisements, referenced within content, or placed beside the names or logos of sponsors. DrillSheet.com does not disclose your Personal Information to these Third Party Websites without obtaining your consent. DrillSheet.com does not endorse and is not responsible for the privacy practices of these sites. If you choose to link to one of these Third Party Web sites, you should review the privacy policy posted on this other website to understand how that Third Party Web site collects and uses your Personally Identifiable Information.

Disclosure of Aggregate Information

DrillSheet.com may provide Aggregate Information to third parties.

Depending on the circumstances, we may or may not charge third parties for this Aggregate Information.

How DrillSheet.com Handles Privacy and Security Internally

Glossary

Aggregate Information or Data: As a website gathers individual pieces of Non-Personal Information (see definition below) from its users, it may combine similar data from many or all the users of the website into one big “batch”. For example, the site may add up the total number of people in Buffalo, New York, (but not their names) who currently have the Hammer Black Widow Pearl bowling ball in their Arsenal and compare that to the number of people in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with the same information.

This sort of statistical information is called aggregate data because it reflects the habits and characteristics of a large group of anonymous people. Web sites may use aggregate data or share it with their business partners so that the information and services they provide best meet the needs of the users. Aggregate data also helps advertisers and sponsors on the Web know how effectively they are reaching and meeting the needs of their target audience.

Browser: Short for Web Browser, a browser is software application used to locate and display web (Internet) pages. The three most popular browsers are Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Apple Safari. In addition, most modern browsers can present multimedia information, including sound and video, though they require plug-ins for some formats.

Encrypt or Encryption: The process of transforming information to make it unintelligible to all but the intended recipient. To read an encrypted file, you must have access to a secret key or password that enables you to decrypt it.

Firewall: A system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a public or private network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software, or a combination of both. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private portions of public networks. All messages entering or leaving the network pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.

Non-Personal Information: Information that is not traceable back to any individual and cannot be used to identify an individual. For example, information such as gender, age, city and state when not linked with other Personally Identifiable Information is Non-Personal Information.

Opt-In: Means you are actively indicating your preference to participate in a program, email, feature, tool, or enhancement on a Web site. Typically, if you “Opt-in” you must provide certain information, usually Personally Identifiable Information, to the Web site or otherwise actively indicate your choice or preference to participate in the Web site program.

Opt-Out: Means that if you do not take some action you are indicating your preference to participate in a program, email, feature, tool or enhancement on a Website. Typically, if you “Opt-out” you must uncheck a box next to a stated preference or otherwise take some indicate action to indicate your preference not to participate in a program.

Password: A secret series of characters, typically alpha-numeric (meaning it consists of both letters and numbers) that enables a user to access a file, computer, or program. The user must enter his or her password before the computer or system will respond to commands. The password helps ensure that unauthorized users do not access the system. In addition, data files and programs may require a password.

Ideally, the password should be something that nobody could guess. In practice, many people choose a password that is easy to remember, such as their name or their initials. This is one reason it is relatively easy to break into many computer systems.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) (also called Personal Information): Information that can be traced back to an individual (contrast with Non-Personal Information and Aggregate Information). Examples of PII include your name, home address, telephone number, email address, and Social Security number.

If other pieces of information are linked to PII, they also become PII. For example, if you use a nickname to chat online and give out your real name while chatting, your nickname becomes PII when linked with other PII.

Server: A computer that provides services to other computers. A “web server” stores web site files and “serves” them to people who request them.

Username: A name used to gain access to a computer system or program. Usernames, and often passwords, are required in shared systems, such as the Internet. In most such systems, users can choose their own usernames and passwords. An email address can be used in replacement of a username.

Virus: A program or piece of code that is loaded onto your computer without your knowledge and runs against your wishes. Viruses can also “replicate” themselves by copying their code to other computers. All computer viruses are manmade. A simple virus that can make a copy of itself over and over again is relatively easy to produce. Even such a simple virus is dangerous because it will quickly use all available memory and bring the system to a halt. An even more dangerous type of virus is one capable of transmitting itself across networks and bypassing security systems.
