In order to better provide you with numerous products and services, Time-Masters.com collects two types of information
about its visitors: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Our
primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized
experience while using our site.
Personally Identifiable Information
This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. Personal information is
requested when you order a product or service, register for a Gift List, enter contests or sweepstakes,
apply for the Time-Masters.com credit card, fill out surveys, and send us feedback. For example, this information might include
your name, billing address, shipping address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card or other
payment information, and product details. With this information, Time-Masters.com can fill your orders and better
provide you with personalized services. For a few services, we may collect your personal information
on behalf of other merchants and share it with them. For example, on our Cellular Store, we may ask you
for your social security number, driver's license number and date of birth and share that information
with the third-party telephone service provider that you have selected. If you visit one of the stores
available through a link on our site, they will independently collect, use and
share your personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies. If you have questions
about their information practices, please read their privacy policies. In many cases, you can find a
link to their privacy policies on the page offering the Partners' services.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual.
We gather certain information about you based upon where you shop on our site in several ways.
This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. For example,
this information may include the Web site's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from,
which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL
is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier
for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the
World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address
of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer
whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require
IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop.
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide Time-Masters.com's visitors with a superior customized online
experience. We use the customer contact information to fill orders, contact purchasers to inform them of their order
status, to send promotional information, to enhance the operation of our site and administer our systems.
Demographic data also may be collected at our site from third party advertising servers, content servers,
or web site analysis agents who provide us with the zip code and area code associated with a visitor's server, along with pages
viewed on our site. We review the actions of the Time-Masters.com visitors on an aggregate basis to determine
customers' preferences. Time-Masters.com also does research on our visitors' demographics, interests, and pages
viewed based on the information provided to us during ordering, a promotion, from our server log files, from our
web site analysis agents, or from contests, drawings or surveys. We will use this data to tailor the visitor's experience at our site,
to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site use, to improve our product
offerings, and to customize our site's content, layout, and services. We receive reports from third
party ad servers, content servers, or web site analysis agents that tells us how many ads were presented
and clicked upon or what content was served or viewed.
We may also share your personally identifiable information with third parties who provide services to us,
our customers and web site visitors. Those third parties include authorized contractors, temporary employees
and consultants and other companies working with us (collectively, "agents"). Where we believe it to be
appropriate (in our sole discretion), we will ask our agents not to disclose or use your personal information
for purposes other than to provide services to you or Time-Masters.com.
We gather information in the following ways:
We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to gather broad demographic information,
to enable ads to be served on our site, to report Non-Personally Identifiable Information to our advertisers,
and to monitor the level of activity on our site. We collect information from visitors to our site regarding
the URLs they came from, domain types (e.g., .com or .org), their IP addresses, the date and time of their visit
or order, the number of visits and orders, the number of visits per browsing session, the server type, the operating
system and browser type used to come to the site, the country, state and telephone area code where their servers are
located, the pages and page titles of our site that visitors viewed during their visit, whether the visitor's computer
is enabled for Java or cookies, browser language, applications and plug-ins, and any search terms entered on our site.
When you order from us, we collect personally identifiable information from you. If you order one of our products
or services, we will collect and maintain your name, e-mail address, billing address, shipping address, telephone
number, product selections, credit card or other payment information, order number, referring URL, IP address,
page you bought from and a password. We collect this, and other information, as disclosed in this Policy, in
order to fill your order, to communicate with you about your order and to send you promotional materials.
Before confirming your order, you will have the opportunity to review the product order form and make changes
and additions to the information it contained and these changes will be automatically kept for future use.
Newsletters & Promotional E-mails
We offer free newsletters, such as our Time-Masters.com magazine, and promotional e-mails as a service to our customers. We will send you
newsletters and e-mails periodically listing current specials and deals. To stop receiving our
newsletter, send an e-mail to us at optout@Time-Masters.com.
Contact Information and Third Party Data
If you contact Time-Masters.com or our customer service representatives by telephone, e-mail or letter,
we may keep a record of your correspondence or comments. If you report a problem with our site,
we may collect such information in a file specific to you. If you contact us through our feedback
area or by calling one of our customer service representatives, we may ask for your name, e-mail
address and order information in order to send you a reply. If other users or third parties send
us correspondence about your activities or purchases on our site, we may keep the information in a file specific to you.
We use a third party to help us provide customer service. In order to help you most effectively,
we provide them with your order information.
We may display advertisements on our site. By knowing a little about you, Time-Masters.com will be able to deliver
more relevant advertisements and content to you in the form of targeted banners and promotions.
For example, advertisers give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience they want to
reach (e.g., buyers of Palm Pilots). Time-Masters.com takes the advertisement and includes it in a Time-Masters.com
e-mail to prior customers meeting that criterion. We may also have third-party advertising servers
display ads linked to certain search terms that you have entered, or to certain pages that you are viewing.
In this process, advertisers never have access to individual account information. Additionally, Time-Masters.com
may share aggregated data with advertisers.
We also track customers' traffic patterns throughout their online session, including which pages,
information and advertisements a customer views while using the site and what items they place
in their basket or purchase. We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers, software,
to administer our site and to gather demographic information.
We may share aggregated statistics about pages viewed on our site, sales and other shopping information
with third parties.

was viewed, the area code and zip code associated with your server, and whether you responded to a particular ad

Website Analysis Agent: We may contract with several online partners to help manage and
optimize our Internet business and marketing. We use the services of
marketing companies to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising

provided by the marketing companies on this site. The type of information we collect includes things such as pages, information and advertisements viewed as well as what items are placed in a shopping basket or purchased, the order number, the amount of a purchase, the product number and the quantity purchased. By supplementing our records, this information helps us
learn things like what kinds of customers our site attracts, which of our
products most interest our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers
like to see. Although the marketing companies log the information coming from
our site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used. If

information that they collect.
Fulfillment: The information collected by Time-Masters.com is used for processing orders, keeping you informed about your
order status, for statistical purposes, for improving our site and its performance, to serve ads, and to notify you
of products or special offers that may be of interest to you. We will disclose your Personally Identifiable Information
to third parties to charge your credit card, fill your order, deliver your order, provide customer service, provide you

do not pay us for products ordered, we may submit their account information to a third party collection agency.

not disclose its customers' Personally Identifiable Information to other merchants. Where you sign up for goods
