NO PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED WITHOUT USER CONSENT
8052.com does not require the visitor to provide any personal information whatsoever. Our site does not attempt to obtain your name, email address, phone number, street address, or any other personal information through clandestine means such as the misuse of scripts, cookies, or any other technical means. Any personal information that 8052.com obtains is provided by the user via standard HTML form and, thus, with the user's conscious consent.
PURPOSE OF BROWSER COOKIES
Cookies are not used to assign a "unique ID" to the user for tracking how often they return, etc.
THIRD PARTY "EMBEDDED" WEBSITES
8052.com does not use any external website to render our webpages nor to determine browsing habits, etc. This means none of our webpages include embedded references to external sites that are automatically opened as a page is opened. The only links to external sites are standard HTML links which, when clicked, will take you to the external site.
STATISTICAL INFORMATION COLLECTED
8052.com does maintain a webserver log file for a period not to exceed 30 days which contains the IP address, date/time, referal site, and browser type of every HTTP request. This information is used to obtain statistical information to determine from what countries (and thus what native languages) our visitors are coming from, what type of browsers they are using to improve the quality of our site, and which webpages are the most popular to provide content that is interesting to the greatest number of visitors.
This log file is purged at the end of every month after compiling a summary report with the above statistis for the previous month. The summary reports based on the log file are kept for reference and may be provided to our sponsors (banner advertisers). However, these summary reports contain absolutely no personal information--they only contain statistical summaries such as a summary of hits by country, date, time, page visited, and referal site. Under no circumstance does this summary report contain any personal information about our visitors.
The specific information contained in the webserver log is not released to any third party unless so ordered by a legitimate government agency or in the event of abuse or fraud perpetrated against 8052.com.
IDENTITY ON MESSAGE BOARD IS PUBLIC
If a user wishes to post a message on the public message forums, the user will be required to subscribe as a member of the site. This is free and does require the user to provide his real full name and email address. The poster's real name will be made public to those reading the message forum in order to promote a professional exchange of ideas. The email address will not be revealed to the public unless the member specifically authorizes the address to be shared.
Additionally, the IP address from which every post was written is always saved with the message and this is not optional. The IP address is NOT publically available. The IP address is saved for moderator use only in the event that a message contains illegal material and may be provided to government agencies upon request, or in order to investigate abuses of the message forum and report such abuses to the appropriate ISP.
8052.COM MEMBER SIGNUP
Users may choose to sign-up with 8052.com and become an 8052.com Registered Member. This option is free but the website will ask for your email address and real full name, both of which are required.
The information requested when a user applies to become an 8052.com Registered Member is not given or sold to any third parties, except by legitimate request by a governmental or law enforcement agency.
8052.COM ONLINE STORE DISCLOSURE
Orders placed at the 8052.com Online Store are processed by Vault Information Services.

The vendor of the product you are purchasing, however, will be provided with all information necessary in order to ship you the product--including full name, address, city, state, postal code, country, email address, and phone number.

8052.com will use all information at its disposal when our website or company is the target of abuse or fraud.
Abuse of our website will be reported directly to the ISP from where the abuse originated. We will provide the ISP with appropriate webserver log information that shows source IP address, date/time, page requested, etc.
Fraud (generally related to the 8052.com Online Store) will also be reported to the ISP from which the fraud originated and may also be reported to appropriate government or law enforcement agencies both in the United States and in the country from which the fraud originated. If appropriate we also may report the fraud to the vendors that participate in our 8052.com Online Store so that the source of the fraud does not attempt to perpetrate the same fraud against the vendors directly.
