Non-Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis.
Where do we collect information from you and how do we use it?
We do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to us when you register for a user account or sign up for subscription services to utilize our services, for example.
In addition, we may also collect, or our third party ad server and/or content server may collect, certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information to diagnose problems with our systems/software and to gather demographic information.
With whom do we share your information?
We do not sell, trade, or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to others. We may utilize the services of third parties and provide some of our services through contractual arrangements with affiliates, services providers, partners and other third parties, and to facilitate such arrangements we reserve the right to share with such third parties Personally Identifiable Information, provided that such third party agree to not share the information. For example, your credit card information will be shared with our credit card processor to process subscription transactions.
Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personally Identifiable Information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation, or if we reasonably believe that we are required to do so by law. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.
We may also provide Non-Personally Identifiable Information about our customers’ traffic patterns, and related site information to third party advertisers, but these statistics do not include Personally Identifiable Information.
How can you update or correct your Personally Identifiable Information?
We believe you should have the ability to access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information that you have provided to us. You may change any of your Personally Identifiable Information in your account at any time by logging on to your account and updating your information.
We encourage you to promptly update your Personally Identifiable Information if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on the Site. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without some residual information because of backups.
What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?
We may occasionally send you direct mail (including e-mail) about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. You will have the ability to opt out of receiving such communications from us by following the instructions in such communications.
What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information?
Your Personally Identifiable Information is secure on the Site, consistent with current industry standards. The importance of security for all Personally Identifiable Information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. Your Personally Identifiable Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to your Personally Identifiable Information is available through a password and unique customer ID selected by you. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. In addition, your Personally Identifiable Information resides on a secure server that only our selected personnel and contractors have access to via password. We encrypt your Personally Identifiable Information to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to us.
Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through the Site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party. Accordingly, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary, while our systems utilize industry-standard security measures, we will not be liable for security or data breaches that circumvent such security measures.
Do we use “cookies”?

A cookie is a small data text file, which a website stores on your device’s hard drive that can later be retrieved to identify you to us. Our cookies store randomly assigned user identification numbers. The cookies make your use of the Site easier, make it run more smoothly and help us to maintain a secure Site.
