What information does Genesis RC Online Catalog collect from you? In order to better provide you with numerous products and services, our Online Catalog 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, register for a Wish List, enter contests or sweepstakes, fill out surveys, send us feedback and send us mailings. For example, this information might include but is not limited to your name, billing address, shipping address, telephone number, email address, credit card or other payment information, and product details. With this information, Genesis RC Online Catalog can fill your orders and better provide you with personalized services.
If you visit the Genesis RC website or one of the sites available through a link on our site, the site holders 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. Genesis RC is not responsible for any information these third parties share.
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 website’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.
Where do we collect information from you and how do we use it?
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide Genesis RC Online Catalog visitors with a superior customized online experience. We use customer contact information to fill orders, contact purchasers to inform them of their order status, send promotional information, enhance the operation of our site, and to administer our systems through any other means deemed to improve the customer’s experience.
We review the actions of the Genesis RC Online Catalog visitors on an aggregate basis to determine customers’ preferences. Our Online Catalog also does research on visitor demographics, interests, and pages viewed based on the information provided to us during ordering, through a promotion, from our server log files, and from contests, drawings or surveys. We use resources such as, but not limited to MailChimp and Google Analytics to provide us with the most reliable information. We will use this data to tailor the visitor’s experience at our site, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze site use, improve our product offerings, and to customize our site’s content, layout, and services.
Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that the personally identifiable information we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice. Inadvertent disclosures may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking the site for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.
We gather information in the following ways:
We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to gather broad demographic information, to report Non-Personally Identifiable Information to Genesis RC, 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, the visitor’s browser language, applications and plug-ins, and any search terms entered on our site.

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 contains and these changes will be automatically kept for future use.
Online Surveys and Polling
In order to improve our services to you, we ask some of our customers to voluntarily complete surveys. Individual survey answers are confidential, although Non-Personally Identifiable Information is collected and disclosed to third parties. If you do not wish to participate in a survey, simply decline to participate when asked.
Contests and Sweepstakes
When you enter a contest or other promotion, we may ask you for contact information such as your name, address and email address in order to administer the contest, to send you promotional emails, to notify winners and to make the winners’ list publicly available pursuant to certain states’ laws. Your consent to such promotional use and disclosure of this information is a condition of your participation. As a condition of receiving any prize, you may be required to submit an Affidavit of Eligibility and/or a Winner’s Release, for us to ensure that you are eligible to receive the prize according to the Contest Rules.

Opting out of ad personalization will not eliminate ads from appearing, but will prevent websites, like Genesis RC Online Catalog, from remarketing ads that may be relevant to their customers.
We may use action tags in the operation of our site. An action tag is a method used to track responses or actions by customers who view certain information on our site.

On occasion, unaffiliated third parties will “frame” Genesis RC Online Catalog in an effort to collect customer information. To ensure your privacy, make sure that your order originates from Genesis RC Online Catalog.

You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past purchases, you cannot delete information associated with past purchases. Also, as a security measure we “back up” the data stored on our systems, and such prior information cannot be completely removed from our databases. As a result, you should not expect that all of your Personally Identifiable Information will be completely removed from our backed-up databases.
What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?

Cookies: You may also set your browser so that it will not accept “cookies” to prevent assignment of a unique identifier; however, you will be unable to shop on our site if you do so.
What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information?
In order to most efficiently serve you, credit card transactions and order fulfillment are handled by established third party banking, processing agents and distribution institutions. They receive the information needed to verify and authorize your credit card or other payment information and to process and ship your order.
When you access your account information, the information is kept on a secure server. All of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access by physical security means.
