When you interact with us or use the Site, we and our Service Provider may collect personally identifiable data (“Personal Data”) and other information from you, as further described below:
Personal Data That You Provide Through the Site: We and our Service Provider collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily choose to provide such information such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, register for access to the Services or use certain Services. By voluntarily providing Personal Data, you are consenting to use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to this Site, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to our offices and servers and the offices and servers of our Service Provider, its affiliates, and their contractors located in the United States and other countries.
Non-Identifiable Data: When you utilize the Site, we and our Service Provider may receive or generate certain non-identifiable information about your use of the Site. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. We may store such information ourselves or it may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents or Service Provider. We or our Service Provider may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the Site, the number of visitors to each page of the Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers.
In operating this Site, we or our Service Provider may use “cookies” or similar technology. A “cookie” is a piece of information that the computer or computers that host our Site give to your browser when you access the Site. Such cookies or similar technology help provide additional functionality to the Site and permit more accurate analysis of Site usage. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to such a section or other readily available Internet resources for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies “off”. Please also note that, if you turn cookies “off”, you may not be able to use all of the Site’s features.
Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, we may conduct research on our end user’s demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and we may share this aggregated data with our affiliates, agents, Service Provider, and business partners for their similar use. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
We and our Service Provider may use the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. We and our Service Provider will use Personal Data in order to provide the Services. In addition, if you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we or our Service Provider may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. We may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected or generated through the Site to enforce the Terms of Use, to improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our users, and to improve the Services. In addition, we may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you.
Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information
There are certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you. As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event relating to all or a portion of our business, assets or this Site, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets. We and our Service Provider also sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we or our Service Provider employ another company to perform a function of this nature, they may need to access certain Personal Data, and they will be provided with the information that they need to perform their specific function. In addition, we or our Service Provider may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation; (ii) protect and defend our rights or property, or that of our Service Provider; (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public; or (iv) protect against legal liability.

All such Unsolicited Information shall be deemed to be non-confidential and we shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such Unsolicited Information to others without limitation or attribution. Please also note that any Personal Data or other information you provide to be displayed in your publicly available online profile will be displayed for others to see and thus will not be subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
