 Privacy Policy

In general, Hi-Performance Marketing, Inc. does not collect, store, use or disclose personally identifying information except in very specific instances, such as, for example, when you enroll as an advertiser in the Services, as defined below. Whenever we collect such information, you will have a choice regarding whether to provide it, how it will be used, and to whom it will be disclosed. The instances in which Hi-Performance Marketing, Inc. does collect and use information are specifically described in this Privacy Policy.

Hi-Performance Marketing, Inc. provides easy to use search services located at www.freesearch.com (the "Services"). The Services may also be located on third party web sites and/or applications. The Services are made available by Hi-Performance Marketing, Inc.  and, its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively "HPM."). HPM values its users and their concerns about privacy. To this end, HPM engages in consistent information practices and uses its best efforts to make clear disclosures regarding those practices. This Privacy Policy is a part of that effort.

What does this Privacy Policy cover?
This Privacy Policy applies to collection, use, storage and disclosure of information by HPM. If there are any exceptions, we will clearly disclose them prior to collecting any information, and will give you an opportunity to choose not to participate or provide the information.

Please be aware that, as part of the Services, HPM provides links to Web sites operated by third parties, and also provides search results and similar services to third parties for display on their own Web sites or applications. HPM is not responsible for the information collection or privacy practices or the content of those third party Web sites or applications. Also, please be aware that HPM may serve advertisements provided by a third party, which may collect cookies as part of the process of serving those ads. These cookies are typically used for the purpose of tracking performance of the advertisements. HPM does not determine which information will be collected by that third party. Please see the paragraph below regarding Third Party Advertisements.

Third Party Advertisements.
We may use other third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements on this site and other sites about goods and services that may be of interest to you. 

What information does HPM collect and how is it used? Does HPM disclose information to third parties?
HPM may collect any or all of the following three types of information: (a) traffic data, (b) cookies, or (c) contact information and other personally identifying information. HPM's collection and use of each type of data is described below, as well as the ways (if any) in which the data may be shared with third parties.

    (a) Traffic Data. Data about traffic and usage is not personally identifying or identifiable, and is not supplemented or combined with personally identifying or identifiable information. HPM may share information it collects with certain selected third parties, but only in aggregated, anonymous form. For example, we may tell an advertiser that a certain number of people visited a certain area on our Web site, or searched Web sites for the term "mp3".  HPM collects some information regarding use of the Services by observing browser functions and the files (pages) users access. For example, HPM's servers collect information about the site from which you entered to enable HPM to calculate and pay its affiliates, information about the most frequently searched terms to help its advertisers provide the most relevant search results, information about usage to check for fraudulent behavior or other abnormalities and to ensure that our Services are technically superior. In addition to the foregoing applications, HPM uses the information (in aggregate form) to better design the Services.

   (b) Cookies. Like many sites, HPM collects information about online behavior using cookies, but only in certain circumstances. These cookies contain identification information that enables us to see how our users are interacting with our site and how frequently they are returning, as well as to streamline their experiences using the Services. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information. Cookies lets us know about repeat visitors and if we are delivering quality products and services. HPM may also use cookies to identify which sites our repeat visitors are coming from, so that we can place more of our online advertising on these sites, and can, where necessary, pay our affiliates and other business partners. To HPM, using information within cookies is an anonymous way to survey how we are doing and to look for ways to improve our Services. You may set your browser software to reject cookies, but you may not be able to use all of the features of the Services. HPM may share information about usage of the Services with third parties, but only in aggregated, anonymous form. In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertiser may place or recognize a unique "cookie" on your browser. 

    (c) Contact Information or Personally Identifying Information. HPM can obtain access to your name, e-mail address and other contact information only (1) when you become an advertiser with HPM, provide comments, submit a problem, or request information from HPM and provide your name or return contact information, or (2) in connection with special offers or contests.

Contact information provided in connection with problems, comments or requests is used only to respond to those problems, comments or requests. This information is not stored or used in connection with traffic data and is provided to a third party only as necessary to respond to the comment, problem or request.

Finally, you may choose to provide contact information, other personally identifying information, and demographic information in order to participate in optional surveys or contests, which are run for promotional purposes. HPM uses such information to send you information about its products and to notify you if you win the contest. Finally, from time to time, but only with your permission, HPM may provide certain of its users' registration information to selected third parties who wish to participate in special promotions offered in conjunction with HPM. Users may opt-out of receiving such communications at any time by contacting HPM.

Is data stored by HPM secure?
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, HPM has put in place physical and electronic procedures to safeguard and secure the information it collects online. However, data security is a constantly evolving art and science. You should consider any communication that you transmit to HPM (such as data, questions or answers, comments, or suggestions) as non-confidential, and agree that HPM will not be liable or responsible if information that belongs to you is intercepted and used by an unintended recipient.

Does HPM collect personally identifying information from or about children?
HPM uses reasonable efforts not to collect, use or disclose individually identifiable information from children under the age of 13. The Services are not targeted at children, and children may not register for any portions of the Services that require registration.  Please check with any third-party sites you might access through use of the Services to determine their privacy policy.

How can I access or correct any personally identifying information about me?
To request a copy of the personally identifiable information you have sent to HPM, please send an e-mail containing your request to privacy@freesearch.com. You must provide your full name and the e-mail from which the request is received (and to which the response will be sent) must match the e-mail on file with HPM. You may then correct or delete such information using the procedures specified in the e-mail.
