1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT.
Information You Provide To Us
When using the Sites or the Services you may be asked to provide information that could reasonably be used to contact you or to identify you personally (such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or home address (“Personal Information”)). For example, the Company may collect Personal Information when you register for access to the Services, use certain Services or the Sites, request information, submit comments or participate in some promotion, survey or other feature of the Sites, or otherwise communicate or interact with us. The Services or the Sites may also ask you to provide other information about yourself, such as demographic information (gender, zip code, age, etc.) or certain information about your preferences and interests. If we combine demographic or other information we collect about you with Personal Information about you, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information. If you do not want your personal information collected, please do not submit it.
Information We Collect Automatically
Whenever you visit or interact with the Sites or Services, the Company, as well as any third-party advertisers and/or service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Sites or Services are accessed and used (“Usage Information“). Usage Information may include, in part, browser type, operating system, the page served, the time, and the preceding page views. This statistical data provides us with information about the use of the Sites, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Sites, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. This information helps us keep our website fresh and interesting to our visitors and tailor content to a visitor’s interests. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if the Company associates it with you as a specific and identifiable person, the Company treats it as Personal Information.
The Company may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier“) for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, “Device”) you use to access the Sites. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a web site or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier.
The technologies used on the Sites to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, may include:
Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons, may be included in our Sites and e-mail messages. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Sites, to monitor how users navigate the Sites, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to determine whether content sent was actually viewed.
2. HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH OUR SITES
Any information you submit on the Sites or through the use of the Services will be used for a variety of internal Company purposes, including for example, to: respond to your questions and requests; provide you with access to the Services and certain areas and features of the Sites; verify your identity; communicate with you about your use of the Services and activities on the Sites or to tell you about services we believe may be of interest to you; tailor content, advertisements, and offers we serve you; improve the Services and the Sites and for internal Company purposes; contact you with regard to your use of the Sites, and, in our discretion, changes to any Company policy; and for purposes disclosed at the time you provide your Personal Information or otherwise with your consent.
3. SHARING OF INFORMATION
