We may collect Usage Information from you in the following ways:

Cookies: From time to time, we may use “cookies” to keep track of your visit and your use of the Web Properties.  A cookie is a small piece of data that your browser stores on your computer’s or device’s hard drive and is used to collect information, such as identifying those areas of the Web Properties that you have visited in the past in order to enhance your next visit to the Web Properties.  You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser, but some functionality of the Web Properties may be impaired or not function as intended if you choose not to accept cookies. Each browser is a little different, so look at your Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

Web Beacons: Some of our web pages and electronic communications may contain images, which may or may not be visible to you, known as Web Beacons (sometimes referred to as “clear gifs”). Web Beacons collect only limited information that includes a cookie number; time and date of a page view; and a description of the page on which the Web Beacon resides.  We may also carry Web Beacons placed by third party advertisers. These Web Beacons do not carry any Personal Information and are only used to track usage of the Web Properties and activities associated with the Web Properties.

Unique Identifier: We may assign you a unique internal identifier to help keep track of your future visits. We use this information to gather aggregate demographic information about our visitors, and we use it to personalize the information that you see on the Web Properties and some of the electronic communications you receive from us.  We keep this information for our internal use.

When Information Is Disclosed

We might disclose Personal Information and/or Usage Information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with legal process and applicable law; (b) enforce this Privacy Notice; (c) respond to claims that any materials, documents, images, graphics, logos, designs, audio, video and any other information provided to, from or on the Web Properties by you violates the rights of third parties; (d) assist government enforcement agencies; (e) protect our rights, property, or safety or the rights, property, or safety of our visitors and the public, which includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction, and, if required by law, disclosing information to U.S. federal and state government agencies; and/or (f) investigate potential unauthorized access or misuse of the Web Properties or to otherwise enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions of Use and other agreements.

We use reasonable precautions to keep the information that is disclosed to us secure. We may provide Personal Information and Usage Information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, and other businesses or persons for the purposes of processing such information on our behalf and promoting the goods and services of our trusted business partners, some or all of which may store some or all of your information on servers located outside of the United States.  Furthermore, we cannot and will not be responsible for any breach of security by any third parties or for any actions of any third parties that receive any of the information that is disclosed to us. The Web Properties may also link to other websites. We are not and cannot be responsible for the privacy policies of those websites of third parties or how they treat information about their users.

We may now or in the future share Usage Information with third parties to demonstrate the usage patterns for advertisements, content, functionality, promotions, and/or services on the Web Properties and/or on third party websites.

In addition to the other rights described herein, we have the right to exploit, share, and use, for any purpose, the collected Personal Information in an aggregated, anonymized form, such that you are not individually identified (collectively, “De-identified Data”).  Except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Notice, we may continue to exploit, share and use De-Identified Data after you deactivate or cancel your User Account.

We reserve the right to transfer your Personal Information, as well as any information about or obtained from you, in connection with the merger, sale or other disposition of all or part of our business and/or assets. We cannot make any representations regarding the use or transfer of your Personal Information or other information that we may have in the event of our bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, receivership, or an assignment for the benefit of our creditors. You expressly agree and consent to the use and/or transfer of your Personal Information or other information in connection with a sale or transfer of some or all of our assets in any of the above described proceedings.

We may also disclose your Personal Information for any purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information. We may also disclose your Personal Information with your permission or as directed by you.

Value Added Benefits

We may request that you provide us with the personal information identified in the “Use of Collected Information” Section of this Privacy Notice for the purposes identified in that Section. Whenever we request personal information from a user of the Web Properties, we will make an effort to indicate the purpose of the inquiry at the time the information is requested. Additionally, we may from time to time send email to you announcing new features, services and/or programs offered through the Web Properties. Users have the option of not participating in these value added benefits by following the procedure for withholding your personal information that is set forth at the end of this Privacy Notice. Whenever we collect your Personal Information, we will make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Notice on that page.

User Account, Password and Security

We may now or in the future allow you to create a User Account.  For certain features available through the Web Properties, including use of your User Account, we may require the use of encryption technologies provided for your protection. We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your UserID, password and User Account information and to ensure that information collected through the Web Properties is not lost, misused or altered inappropriately by administering security measures.  You, however, are ultimately responsible for protecting your UserID, password and User Account information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. While we may provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that any information transmitted through the internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, interruption, interception or error.

Parents and legal guardians should be aware that this Privacy Notice will govern our use of Personal Information, but also that information that is voluntarily given by children — or others — in email exchanges, bulletin boards, or the like, may be used by other parties to generate unsolicited communications.  We encourage all parents and legal guardians to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of their Personal Information while using the internet.

European Union and Other International Users

The Web Properties and our products and services are hosted in the United States and are governed by United States law.  If you are using the Web Properties or our products or services from outside the United States (including, but not limited to, from the European Union), please be aware that your personal information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country.

Other than under agreements with certain reputable organizations and companies, and except for third party service providers (as described in this Privacy Notice), we do not share any of the Personal Information that you provide to us with any of the websites to which the Web Properties link, although we may now or in the future exploit, share and use De-Identified Data with those other third parties. Please check with those websites in order to determine their privacy policies and your rights under them.

We may use the services of third party service providers, for example to process payments and other transactions or to provide analytics services.

Choices with Your Personal Information

In order to participate in certain features, services and/or programs of the Web Properties, we may require that you provide us with certain Personal Information.

You may choose to prevent us from disclosing or using your Personal Information under certain circumstances (“opt out”). You may opt out of any disclosure or use of your Personal Information for purposes that are incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or for which you subsequently gave authorization by notifying us by one of the methods at the end of this Privacy Notice, or by following the procedures set forth in an electronic communication from us, if applicable. Furthermore, even where your Personal Information is to be disclosed and used in accordance with the stated purposes in this Privacy Notice, you may elect to opt out of such disclosure to and use by a third party that is not acting as our agent. There are some uses from which you cannot opt out, such as to provide you with products, features or services that you have requested from us.
