Information Collection and Use
RealApplets is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this
information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. RealApplets collects information
from our users at several different points on our website.
We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and
shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used
for billing purposes and to fill customerís orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact
information is used to get in touch with the user.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the userís hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a
cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes
their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not
have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie,
they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site.
For example, the user will not be able to participate in any of our Sweepstakes, Contests or monthly Drawings that
take place. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track userís movement, and gather broad demographic
information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

personal information that can identify any individual person.
We use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share,
store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we RealApplets are not responsible for the

statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.
The newsletter is normally sent on monthly basis at most, with a minimum time of 2 weeks between 2 mailings. The email
address is not used for any other purposes.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys
or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this 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. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the

friend may contact RealApplets to request the removal of this information from their database.
This website takes every precaution to protect our usersí information. When users submit sensitive information
via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
When our Credit Card Processing partner's registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information
(such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with
the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock
icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked,
as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just Ďsurfingí.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can contact the webmaster.
Supplementation of Information
In order for this website to properly fulfill its obligation to our customers, it is necessary for us to
supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources.
For example, to determine if our customers qualify for one of our credit cards, we use their name and social
security number to request a credit report. Once we determine a userís credit-worthiness, this document is
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally
receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of
our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out
Site and Service Updates
We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to un-subscribe from service
announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide
requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email or phone.
Our users are given the opportunity to Ďopt-outí of having their information used for purposes not directly
related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our order form has an Ďopt-outí
mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but donít want any marketing material, can keep their email
address off of our lists.
Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do
this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an
outside party, or not.
Notification of Changes
aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at
any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the
time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not
under which the information was collected.
