Thank you for visiting the Cushing website. We have updated our private policy as of December 16, 2013. Please read below for updates and we appreciate you stopping by!
Information Collection and Use
Cushing is the sole owner of the information collected on this Web site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what those disclosed in this policy. Generally, we collect the domain name, e-mail address, Uniform Resource Locator (URL), and Internet Protocol (IP) address of visitors to our Web site, those who communicate with us via e-mail and those who subscribe to our e-News newsletter. Cushing also collects information that is volunteered to us, for example when users answer a survey, register at this Web site, place an order or request information. In addition, Cushing also collects nonpersonal information in the aggregate, such as what pages site visitors access and how often.
With Whom Do We Share Information?
To use certain parts of this Web site, a user may be required to complete a registration form. During registration, a user is required to give his or her contact information (such as name and e-mail address). This information is used to contact the user to respond to user requests.
Cushing may offer products or services from our Web site. We request information from the user on our order forms. Here a user must provide contact information (name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customers’ orders. If we have questions when processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
This website uses an analytics system developed by Lucky Orange to help us improve website content, the website usability experience and optimize customer service efforts. With this system, we may record mouse clicks, how the site is browsed, scrolling activity and keystroke action. You can opt out of any site using Lucky Orange by clicking here.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
If a user wishes to subscribe to a newsletter or other Cushing publication, we ask for contact information such as name and e-mail address. Users are not required to subscribe to our publications as a condition for using our Web site.
From time to time, our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary, and therefore, the user has a choice whether or not to disclose information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes if applicable. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
This Web site does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under the age of 18, you may use this Web site only in conjunction with and under the supervision of your parents or guardians.
This Web site takes precautions to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and offline. When our registration form requests sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer or SSL.
Cushing reserves the right to disclose personal information about any user that Cushing deems, in good faith, to be necessary to: comply with applicable state and federal law or legal process; or protect Cushing’ rights or assets, including, but not limited to Cushing’ property rights under copyright, trademark and other intellectual property law. Cushing may disclose user data if it feels that user has provided fraudulent or illegal information, has attempted to pose as someone else or has attempted an unauthorized access of user’s computer systems. Persons responsible for attempting unauthorized access of Cushing’ computer systems will be prosecuted to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information (such as zip code) changes, or if a user no longer desires our services, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. This can usually be done by emailing the Cushing Webmaster.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter may opt out of receiving these communications by following the instructions listed at the bottom of the newsletter e-mail.
