COLLECTING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
In general, you can visit many of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics. There may be times (such as when you join a user forum or participate in contests, sweepstakes or promotions, etc.) at which we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, email address, credit card information, birth date, gender, occupation, personal interests, etc. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers and content on our web site.
USING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
We use the information we collect from you for purposes that will help us serve you better, such as confirming and verifying registration, analyzing trends and statistics, informing you of our new products, services and offers, referring you to partners, etc. We may also provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we and our partners offer. We may also use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about us, and to process payments for services. In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to our specified purposes. We do not otherwise disclose your information to third-parties.

We also reserve the right to contact you in the event of extenuating circumstances.
We use encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of your personal information that you share with us. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Once we receive your transmission, we will do our best to protect its security on our systems.
