INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU
We collect two types of information from you when you visit our Sites: (1) “personally identifiable information” (as defined below) and (2) non-personally identifiable information (as defined below).
PERSONAL IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (“PII”)
Personally identifiable information for the purpose of this privacy statement includes, but is not limited to:
Mailing Address, City and State
The term PII does not include information about any individual that has been made publicly available by a federal, state, or local governmental entity. The term PII also does not include information may be encrypted, secured, or modified by any other method or technology that removes elements that personally identify an individual or that otherwise renders the information unusable.
NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (“NPII”)
Non-Personally Identifiable Information can be technical information or it can be demographic information, such as your age, gender, or interests. NPII may also mean aggregated, non-identifiable, or anonymized information. NPII does not identify you personally. If you provide us with non-personally identifiable information, we may use it for the purposes described in this statement or where it is collected, or any other legal purpose.
Here are some examples of the ways in which we may collect and store your and how we use such information:
Internet Protocol (IP) Address: Your “IP address” is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data, such as the screens and pages that you view. We use this information to deliver our screens and pages to you upon request, to tailor our services to the interests of you and our other visitors, and to measure traffic to and within our services.
Information about your Transactions: We may collect information about your transaction and experiences with Us.
Mobile Device Information: Information that identifies your mobile device, such as: Electronic Serial Number (“ESN”) or International Mobile Equipment Identity (“IMEI”) data; device serial number; and media access control (“MAC”) address.
SHARING AND DISCLOSURE OF PII AND NPII
Personally Identifiable Information. Primarily, we may share or disclose your PII, in the following instances:
To fulfill a service to you.
For example, if you e-mail us a question, we may use your e-mail address to process your request and respond to your question.
When applicable on the Sites, where you have appropriately opted-in to the sharing of your PII with third parties, to offer you products from our affiliates, strategic partners, agents, or from third-party marketers and other unaffiliated parties that we believe may be of interest to you, or to assist such parties for research, administrative, and/or business purposes.
These parties may contact you with an offer or advertisement related to a product or service, or they may use such information for their own research, administration or business purposes.
To unaffiliated third-party service providers, agents, or independent contractors who help us maintain our website and us with other administrative services (including, but not limited to, order processing and fulfillment, providing customer service, maintaining and analyzing data, sending customer communications on our behalf).
To comply with law, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the requirements of law, or comply with legal process served on us, and to protect and defend our rights or property, including our rights and property and our services, or act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of you and our other visitors.
To third parties as part of a corporate reorganization process including, but not limited to, mergers, acquisitions, and sales of all or substantially all of our assets.
To track and analyze NPII, i.e. non-identifying, aggregate usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and customers and provide such information to third parties.
Non-personally Identifiable Information. We may share and disclose your NPII for the purposes described in this statement or where it is collected, or any other legal purpose, including, when and where applicable, sharing and disclosing non-personally identifiable information combined with PII.
General Legal Disclosure. We may disclose information about you and your use of the website if we believe that such disclosure is permissible under applicable law and reasonably necessary to:
(i) Comply with the law and/or legal process where a formal request has been made (e.g. request from an administrative oversight agency, civil suit, subpoena, court order or judicial or administrative proceeding);
(ii) Protect or defend our rights and/or property or the rights and property of others;
(iv) Respond to claims that the content(s) of a communication violates the rights of another.

COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGY
We use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We receive and stores information about how you use our website when you visit the Site. For example, we receive information that your browser or device sends to our servers whenever you visit the Sites. Your browser or device may tell us your internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, computer and connection information such as browser type, version, language and time zone setting, browser plug-in types, operating system, and type of device you are using. When you visit the Sites, your browser may also tell us information such as the actions you take on our Site, the page that led you to our Site and, if applicable, the search terms you typed into a search engine that led you to our Site.
You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the Sites. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Sites or all functionality of the services.

SOCIAL MEDIA AND COMMUNITY PLATFORMS
ADVERTISERS AND MARKETING
We may also use third-party advertisers, ad networks, and other advertising, marketing, and promotional companies, to serve advertisements to you. Such third parties may gather information about your visit to our Sites, monitor your access to or market products or services to you, monitor the ads you view, click on, or interact with, when they were delivered, and the screens and pages that they are on. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt out by clicking here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.
To learn more about these practices, as well as your choices regarding the practices of these third-party advertising companies, you may wish to visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_noNPIIi.asp and/or http://www.aboutads.info/choices/#completed. Both the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) websites provide information regarding their respective members practices and your choices regarding having your information used by these companies, including the opt out procedures. Opting out of one or more NAI or DAA members only means that those NAI or DAA members no longer will be allowed under their own rules to deliver advertisements to you based on your visits to this site and other sites, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads. Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit this opt out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different device or change web browsers, your NAI or DAA opt out may not, or may no longer, be effective. We are not responsible for effectiveness of or compliance with any third parties' opt out options or programs.
CONTESTS, PROMOTIONS, AND GIVEAWAYS
We may conduct giveaways, contests and other promotions in which we may ask you for additional information. We use and treat this information in accordance with the terms of this Policy. Participation in such giveaways and contents is not necessary to use the Sites, and you may choose whether you wish to participate in any particular giveaway or contest, without affecting your general use of the Sites.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
No data transmissions over the Internet are completely secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or others over the Internet. You transmit such information at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. We use physical, technical and administrative security measures to safeguard your information. We restrict access to PII to our employees, agents and others who use such information only as permitted by law, such as to comply with the law, to provide you with the information you have request from us.
