This statement discloses our privacy practices. If you have any concerns about this policy, please Contact Us.
How We Collect Information
In almost all cases, we do not obtain any personally identifiable information about you unless you choose to reveal it. You voluntarily submit such information when, for example, you fill out a registration page, enter sweepstakes or contests, send us email, respond to emails from us, or post messages or upload other Material to the Site. Thus, you are not required to disclose any personally identifiable information to us, although many parts of our site may not be available to you unless you do so. We may also receive personally identifiable information about you from other users or third parties who may communicate with us about you (such as in the case of complaints).
When feasible, we do automatically collect your IP address. We also automatically collect and store statistics and other information about you and your online activities both on an aggregated, non-personally identifiable basis and in a manner that may allow us to associate such information with other personally identifiable information about you and your activities on our site.
How We Use and Disclose Your Information
We use your information on an aggregated basis to do such things as operate our site and enhance our site. We also use this data, both aggregated and personally identifiable, to enhance your onsite experience. We may disclose aggregated information about our site to third parties.
As a general practice, we do not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties. So, for example, we do not sell your email addresses to spammers or sell your name and personal demographic information to mass marketers. However, on particular pages where we ask for your personally identifiable information, we may explicitly tell you that the data we are collecting on that page will be provided to third parties, in which case those disclosures shall override anything to the contrary in this policy.
Note that some online activities you choose to do necessarily lead to disclosure of your personally identifiable information to third parties, such as when you include your name and email address in messages posted on our site or sent via our service (using current or future functionality. In these cases, again, your choice to disclose personally identifiable information is voluntary. However, as a necessary incident of our service, we will make your username available for all visitors to see.
In some situations, we provide your personally identifiable information to third party service providers to enhance or expand the functionality available to you as part of your membership, but this will only be done when you specifically ask us to by signing up for the relevant services.
In some cases we use your personally identifiable information to provide information to you, such as to send newsletters and email that you request or to personalize the site in accordance with your requests. We will provide you with directions in all emails and newsletters on how to be taken off our newsletter list.
Cookies and Other Tracking Methods
In addition to using cookies, in some circumstances we may track or collect information about your activities on our site by your IP address or by the URLs that you come from or leave to. However, these methods do not permit us to associate this information with any other personally identifiable information that you may have provided us.
Please note that different rules may apply to the collection, use or disclosure of your information by third party service providers or vendors or any other sites you encounter on the Internet (even if these sites are branded with our branding or framed by our site). We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties.
Limits on Our Abilities
Although your privacy is very important to us, due to the existing legal and technical environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries.
We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers where appropriate. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
