You agree that your use of the Site signifies your acceptance of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use this Site.

1. Information Collected

We collect two types of information about you: information that you voluntarily provide to us (i.e. through a voluntary sign-up process or an email you send to us) and information that is automatically collected by our Site.

Automatically Collected Information – When you visit the Site, some information is automatically collected on each Web page. This may include your computer or device's operating system, Web browser, IP address, the page you visited, the date and time you visited and the referring page's URL. We may obtain this information via server logs, cookies (small data files your Web browser stores on your hard drive), web beacons (small electronic images used to count Web page views) or other commonly used mechanisms.

We generally use this information in an aggregated form to analyze site usage so we can improve the usefulness of the Site. We do not track information about individuals and their visits.

In addition, cookies may be used in some Site features to provide you with a richer user experience. However, these cookies are not associated with any personally identifiable information.

2. How We Use Your Information

We only use your personal information for the original purpose(s) for which it was provided. Except when required by law, we will not disclose, use, give or sell any personal information to third parties for any purposes other than to third parties who need to know in order to deliver services on behalf of the Site.

We may permit certain trusted third parties to track and analyze automatically collected usage data (see section 1b for examples). We generally use this information in an aggregated form to analyze site usage so we can improve the usefulness of the Site. We do not track information about individuals and their visits.

We may use third parties to host the Site; design, develop, support and operate various features available on the Site; send emails; analyze data; provide search results and links and assist in fulfilling your requests.

Also, we may share personally identifiable or other information with our subsidiaries, divisions and affiliates.

We may transfer personally identifiable information as an asset in connection with a proposed or actual merger or sale (including any transfers made as part of an insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding) involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization, stock sale or other change in control.

We may disclose contact information in special cases where we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our terms and conditions of use or may be causing injury or interference with our rights, property, our customers or anyone who could be harmed by such activities.

We do not allow third parties to use the Site to collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer's online activities over time and across different websites.

3. "Do Not Track" Signals

Some Web browsers have a "Do Not Track" mechanism that users can enable. When enabled, the Web browser automatically sends a "Do Not Track" signal to each Website the user visits requesting that the Website disable its user tracking mechanisms for the current user.

As of the latest update of this Privacy Policy, this Site does not recognize or respond to "Do Not Track" signals.

4. How We Protect Your Information

We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. We take appropriate security measures to protect your information against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. To do this, we maintain appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.

5. Children's Privacy and Parental Controls
