This Privacy Policy explains our policy regarding the privacy of information supplied by users or collected by us from users of this web site or from other third parties. Because we want to build users' trust and confidence in our privacy practices, we want to disclose them to you.

Changes in this Privacy Statement

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the home page, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.

Registration Newsletter/ Frequency of Mailings

By registering to our newsletter, you are agreeing to receive our newsletters on a daily basis. shineabout.com has the right to change frequency of delivery of its newsletters without notice.

Collection and Use of information

We respect your right to privacy. shineabout.com received your information from your submission to us or through one of our affiliates. shineabout.com is the owner of the information that you provided in any registration process. Your email address and any other identifying information that you give us will not be revealed to any third party, including any of the direct marketers who may use us to pass offers to you.

We use the information that you provided primarily to send you our newsletters. Moreover, the information subscribers give us is sometimes used to send prizes, verify legal age, and to send third-party mailings based on the interests that each individual subscriber has opted-in for. We may also collect and report to third parties (such as affiliates, content and service providers, and advertisers) aggregated information from our web site. For example, we may aggregate and report to third parties that X people purchased a particular product during a month, or that Y% of visitors to this web site are between the ages 25-34.

From time to time, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you, therefore, have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).

As is true of most web sites, we also gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information like IP addresses and email addresses. However, this is solely for internal uses and used to verify appropriate registration methods.

Finally, shineabout.com may disclose subscriber information in response to subpoenas, court orders, and other legal processes.

Children

We are committed to the safety of children and do not intend to collect personally identifiable information from children under age 18. If you are under age 18, please ask your parent for permission before sending any information to our site or anyone else online. Have your parent contact us as indicated below in order to provide us with prior written consent. We will not intentionally use personal information from or send marketing communications to children under age 13 without prior parental consent.

Cookies

Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)

We maintain the right to share aggregated demographic information about our subscriber base with our partners and advertisers. This information does not identify individual subscribers. We do not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.

Third-Party Links

For your convenience, our newsletter contains links to third-party web sites that are not owned or controlled by us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other web sites. We encourage you to note when you follow links in our newsletters and to read the privacy statements of these other web sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our newsletter and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by shineabout.com

Business Transitions

In the event shineabout.com goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred.

Using Padsite (A Tutorial)

Once you've completed the setup process, your Setup page should look like this.

From here, you can add new tables and generate reporting and editing pages for those tables.

For example, if you want to add a table for keeping track of your products, click Add A New Table and enter the table name "Products". The table will be created with the table prefix (that you assigned in application.cfm) prepended to the table name.

Click Create Table and the Setup page reloads showing that the new table has been created.

Next, you'll want to create a report page for your Products table. Click on the table you just created and you will see a listing of that table's fields and a representation of the schema for that table.

Currently, the only field that has been created is the ID field which is used as the primary key for that table. Click Add A New Data Field and enter ProductName and select a type of varchar and set a size of 50 characters.

Click Add Column and the window will update to allow you to enter more specific details about the data field.

Here you can assign a subtype for the field, enter a value for the fieldset label (legend) and control other options such as whether the field should be editable, displayed in reports and sortable. Each data type has its own set of subtypes and options - including the option to enter formulas.

Now your products table has been updated with your new ProductName field. Now let's go ahead and create a reporter page and an editor page for our Products table by clicking Add A New Page at the bottom of the "Admin Pages Associated With This Table" section.

admin page (600 pixels)

This isn't as complicated as it looks at first. Let's start at the top and work our way down.

Page Menu is the Menu that this new page will show up under. Since the navigation supports drop down menus, you can create a drop down menu by simply putting two or more pages under the same Page Menu.

Page Title is the title of the report page. Note that the Page Title and the Page Menu do NOT have to be the same.

File Name is the actual file name for the report page. I generally recommend naming it the plural version of whatever it is to be reporting but since Padsite is not dependent on any naming conventions here, you can name it whatever you want.

Page Subtype currently only supports reporter (I think) but other subtypes are in the works as you can see.

Let's skip summary for now. That's a more advanced feature.

Access Required indicates whether the person requesting this page must be logged in and what level of access they should have.

Record Name is used as a label to refer to individual records.

Editor is the file name of the editor page for this table. I generally recommend naming it the singular version of whatever it is to be editing.

Access is again what level of access is required to access the editor page.

Window Size is the size that the editor window should open up to.

The viewer section is just a read-only version of the editor for detail reporting only - not editing. It is not fully supported just yet.

Now, you click the Update button to save what you've entered so far. The window will refresh and you will see that the Create buttons next to the reporter file name and the editor file name are now active. Click these buttons to create the pages and then you can close this window.

If everything worked, you should now see that the menu has been updated with your new page and if you click on it, you should see a reporter page for your table that is ready to accept new records. 

That pretty much covers the basics but feel free to email me if you have any questions.
