Like most standard Web site servers, we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the Web site, track the user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally-identifiable information.
A cookie is a piece of data tied to information about the user and stored on the user's computer. We use both session cookies, which terminate when a user closes their browser, and persistent cookies, which remain on the user's computer until manually deleted. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
We do not link the information we store in persistent cookies to any personally-identifiable information you submit while on the Site. We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf and to monitor certain pages of our Site for the purpose of reporting web traffic, statistics, advertisement effectiveness, or other activities on the Site. These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide customer service to their account via email, phone, fax or mail, and we reply to user inquiries via email or phone, or other reasonable means, in accordance with the user's wishes where applicable.
SHARING INFORMATION FOR SERVICE AND OPERATING THE SITE
OFFERS AND UPDATES
All new users receive emails to establish their account and welcome them to the Site. Existing users will occasionally receive information on products, services, and special deals related to the Site. We offer the option not to receive these types of communications within the bottom of every email sent by us. We also send emails to users when different actions have been taken on their account. For instance, when certain personal information has been revised, an email is sent to ensure that the information change was legitimate.
From time to time we may request information from users via surveys or contests such as name and e-mail address. Participation in these surveys or contests is voluntary and the user has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of our Site.
In the event the Site undergoes a business transition such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
