This Privacy Policy explains the policy of IDEA, Inc., ("IDEA, Inc.") regarding the privacy of information supplied by users or collected by IDEA, Inc. from users of the IDEA, Inc. website. It is intended to assure you that doing business with IDEA, Inc. over the internet is as safe and secure as doing business with us over the telephone which you can always do by calling 800-635-9261. Because we value your privacy, we want to disclose our privacy practices.

Since this policy may change over time as we modify or expand our services, we suggest that you check back from time to time to understand how we treat your information.

How Information Is Used and With Whom It Is Shared
We use your personally identifiable information to enhance the IDEA, Inc. Website, to personalize your experience, or other uses we may determine from time to time. We use your information from the registration form to send you information about our company and promotional material from some of our partners and sister companies. IDEA, Inc. periodically sends out printed catalogs and other direct-mail pieces to the mailing list. From time to time, IDEA, Inc. also contacts customers or potential customers by phone, mail, fax or email to solicit feedback, distributing company newsletters or press releases, or announcing new products, services and promotional offers. Your information is also used to contact you when necessary and is shared with other companies who may want to contact you. IDEA, Inc. maintains a mailing list of individuals that have requested a catalog, made a purchase from IDEA, Inc., registered to use www.sidsavage.com or otherwise voluntarily communicated their telephone, fax number, email or physical address to IDEA, Inc. IDEA, Inc. occasionally releases its mailing list to other companies. IDEA, Inc. does not release email addresses to other companies.
Financial information that is collected from you may be used to check your qualifications for registration and bill you for products and services.
