1. Information we collect, and whether this includes personally identifiable information

Personally identifiable information may be collected from your using our Website. For example, when you visit our websites, performance and usage information (such as search term, time of day, browser type, default language setting, IP address, an anonymous unique ID, etc.) will be transmitted to us for evaluation. This information does not personally identify you.

When you sign up for Services that require registration, we ask you for personal information such as your name, phone number and email address. The information voluntarily provided by you during the registration process may also include or naturally entail other demographic information such as gender, age, occupation, ZIP code and country.

We may combine the information you submit with information from other services or third parties in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our Website and services. Our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language and the date and time of your request. “Cookies” are small files that contain information that we use to track trends and patterns of how people search. We send one or more cookies to your computer that uniquely identifies your user account or computer. We use cookies to improve the quality of our Websites and services. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features may not function properly if your receipt of cookies is disabled. When you send email or other communication to us, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our Websites and services.

We collect the full Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") of the web page from which you came to us, your IP address, which may include a domain name and the date and time for each page you view. We also collect the name of and information about any advertisement or other link that brought you to us. If you email us, we may store copies of such email or similar communications between you and us. This can result in the collection of your email address or other personally identifiable information you may have in your email text, addresses, or other fields, as well as the collection of the your IP address, the Internet or other routing of your communication, and the date and time of your communication.

All transmissions between you and us, including emails, URLs, cookie identification numbers, usage paths, and any personally identifiable information they might contain, pass through many third party machines, operating systems, programs, browsers, web servers, networks, routers, Ethernet switches, ISPs, proxy servers, intranets, the public telephone systems, or other devices, any of which may create activity logs containing such transmissions, and many of which we cannot control.

2. What we do with the information we collect and how we share the information

We use your information solely for providing information and services, and therefore, as a natural part of providing information and services, we may share your information with our employees, contractors and agents on an as needed basis. We may contact you by email to respond to your inquiries. We do not disclose your email address to business partners or to anyone other than employees, contractors, or agents working for or on behalf of us, except as required by law. If you have given us your email address but wish to unsubscribe at any time, please see Section 4 below (Choice and Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information) for instructions on how to do so. We may share personal information with persons outside of our company if we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce agreements between you and us, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of our company, its users or the public as required or permitted by law. We will disclose any information we possess that is directly responsive to subpoenas, court orders, or legal requirements, and such information might be used by the receiving party to determine your identity. We do not rent or sell your personally identifiable information.

If we become involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of our assets, we will provide notice if such a transaction results in your information being subject to a different privacy policy.

We use cookies for such functions as verifying that you are one of our visitors or users. We use IP addresses to diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our website. Your IP address also is used by us to gather broad demographic information, such as your general geographic location and internet service provider. IP addresses are further used to help determine the number of our visitors and users to maintain efficient administration of our Websites and services. This demographic information may also be used by us to analyze aggregate usage behavior.

We may share aggregated non-personally identifiable information with third parties. Aggregated non-personally identifiable information is recorded about users and collected into groups so that it no longer reflects or references an individually identifiable user. These third parties collect information when users visit our Websites. They may use this information (not including your name, address, email address or
telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements on the other websites and other forms of media about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please visit:

We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as technical support services. To perform those functions, it may be necessary for them to obtain access to our databases and servers, which may contain personally identifying information about visitors and users. We will not provide your registration information to any third party except as described in this Privacy Policy or with your consent. These parties are obliged to use the information according to our instructions and they are bound to this Privacy Policy and must apply appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

3. Security measures used to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control

We use commercially reasonable computer security safeguards to protect our databases and servers against risks of loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification, or inadvertent or improper disclosure of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. We restrict access to personal information to our employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order for us to provide, develop or improve our Websites and services. Security risks, however, cannot be completely eliminated and we therefore cannot guarantee complete security.

If you send us an email, you should be aware that email is not completely secure against interception. Therefore, if your communication will include sensitive information such as your bank account, charge card, or social security number, or other personal information, we advise and prefer that you not transmit such information electronically, please contact us by postal mail or telephone rather than email.

4. Choice and Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information

You can decline to submit personal information to us for any reason, in which case we may be unable to provide requested information or services to you. If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes. If your personally identifiable information changes (such as ZIP code, phone, email or postal address), or if you wish to provide opt out notifications, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate registered users' personally identifiable information. This can usually be done by emailing us:

5. Changes to this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy may change from time to time. You are responsible for periodically reviewing this Privacy Policy for any applicable changes.
