enforcement agencies in our discretion. Such disclosures may be carried out
without notice to you.
(iii) Business Transfers.
Delta Tau may share Personal
Information with its subsidiaries and affiliates for marketing purposes and
other internal business reasons. Delta Tau also reserves the right to
disclose and transfer all information related to the Site, including Personal

other Delta Tau assets or applicable database; or (ii) in connection

including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process.

on the Site, we may disclose your Personal Information to third parties or the
public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including,
without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and

that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you,
including, without limitation, except where prohibited by law, allowing the

The "Purchase" function allows you to
purchase certain products and services such as licenses to Delta Tau magazines
and other products online. The Site is designed to give you options concerning
the privacy of your Personal Information. If you choose, you can be a Profile
Member where you can set up an account and provide certain Personal
Information. This will allow you to have a customized order page for express
ordering and to view your purchasing history. To protect your privacy, we have
designed the Profile Membership account process to include certain steps to
verify your identity before granting you access or enabling you to make changes
to your account. After logging into your account, you will have access to your

your credit card information. We use commercially reasonable security measures
and retain card information for payment processing purposes only. See the
section below entitled "Data Security" for further details. Because we know
customers are concerned about credit card security, Delta Tau users have
two choices when purchasing from the Delta Tau. You may either: (1) store
your credit card number(s) in your account profile, which is convenient because
you will not need to re-enter your number each time you place an order; or (2)
elect not to store your credit card number(s) in your account profile, which
means you will be required to re-enter your credit card information each time
you place an order through the Delta Tau.

The Site may use third parties such as
network advertisers to serve advertisements on the Site and may use traffic
measurement services to analyze traffic on the Site. Network advertisers are
third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to the Site and
other websites you have visited. Third-party ad serving enables us to target
advertisements to you for products and services in which you might be
interested. The Site's third party ad network providers, the advertisers, the
sponsors and/or traffic measurement services may themselves set and access
their own cookies or other technology on your computer. Without limiting the
generality of the foregoing, if you choose to have cookies enabled in your
browser such parties may track certain behavioral information regarding users
of your computer via a Device Identifier. These third party cookies and other
technology are set to, among other things: (a) help deliver advertisements to
you that you might be interested in; (b) prevent you from seeing the same
advertisements too many times; and (c) understand the usefulness to you of the
advertisements that have been delivered to you. Note that any images (or any
other parts of a web page) served by third parties in association with third party
cookies may serve as web beacons, which enable third parties to carry out the
previously described activities. Third party cookies, web beacons and other
third party technology are governed by each third party's specific privacy
policy, not this one. While we may use a variety of companies to serve
advertisements on the Site, you may wish to visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp
which provide information regarding these practices by Network Advertising
Initiative ("NAI") and Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") members, and your
choices regarding having this information used by companies, including the
