INTRODUCTION

This Privacy Policy provides information about how we may collect and use information about you when you use the Site. This Privacy Policy applies only to us and the Site, and not to third party websites, products, services or applications (collectively, “Third Party Sites or Services”) to which we may provide links. The collection and use of your information by Third Party Sites or Services is governed by the applicable third party privacy policies. If you link to, enter, download, or provide information to or through any Third Party Sites or Services, such as by visiting third party websites that are linked to the Site, the use and collection of your information by the applicable third party will not be governed by this Privacy Policy but rather by the privacy policy published by that third party.

1.INFORMATION COLLECTION

We collect two kinds of information related to you: (a) Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”); and (b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”)
(a) Personally Identifiable Information: PII includes any information that identifies or could be used to uniquely identify, contact or locate you. We collect your PII when you choose to participate in a current or future interactive feature of the Site such as by providing or participating in reviews, comments, surveys, promotions, or correspondence with us.
(b)Non-Personally Identifiable Information: Non-PII is any information that does not uniquely identify you as a person including PII which has been rendered anonymous. We may obtain non-PII either separately or together with your PII as described above. We may collect certain non-PII from you when you access the Site including IP addresses and information relating to your browser, operating system, Internet Service Provider, the third party website from which your visit originated, how you use the Site such as the web pages you visit, and the duration of your visits.

2.USE OF INFORMATION COLLECTED

We may use PII and Non-PII to provide, or improve, the Site to you and to carry out your requests, respond to your inquiries, better serve you and understand your needs, or use such information in other ways naturally associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information.

We may disclose PII and Non-PII to:

(1)our third party service providers who perform functions on our behalf in connection with the operation of the Site, including, but not limited to, delivering any services or products, providers who host and manage data (they have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but should not use it for other purposes and should comply with this Privacy Policy);

(2) the general public where you choose to publicly post comments or communicate with other users via public forums (e.g., forums, message boards, bulletin boards, etc.); and

(3) any party with your consent.

In addition, we may use non-PII to help analyze Site traffic and trends.

3.COOKIES

We and the third parties we authorize, including website analysis firms, automatically receive and store certain types of non-PII whenever you interact with the Site by using “cookies” and analogous technology. “Cookies” are small files that are placed on your computer or your internet browser memory to enable the owner of the cookie to recognize your browser and to provide convenience and other features to you. So, for example, our cookies may allow us to show you the past features or products you have searched for on the Site.
You may be able to direct your internet browser not to allow cookies and you can typically delete existing cookies from your computer at any time. Please note, however, some elements of the Site may not function properly or be available to you if you disable or limit cookie functionality.

4.DISCLOSURE BY LAW

We may disclose and use any PII or non-PII if we are required to do so by law, including with respect to copyright and other intellectual property infringement claims, or if we believe that such action is necessary to: (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, the Site, or other users; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health or safety of the Site’s users or the general public.

5.SECURITY OF INFORMATION

While we strive to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your PII.
