Information We Collect
The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected include: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services. When you register as a user, you are asked to enter your name and email address plus additional information. As such, we are collecting all the information that you yourself input. We may also collect information when we ask you marketing questions, or when you ask to receive any of our newsletters or to participate in our forums.
While you are using our websites, we may also collect certain non-personally-identifiable information about you, such as the URL you just came from, the next URL you go to, what browser you are using (e.g. Chrome, Internet Explorer), the domain name of your Internet Service Provider (e.g. AOL, Earthlink), and your IP address. We also use “cookies,” which are pieces of information that websites transfer to your computer’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes and to track and customize advertising served to you.
How We Use Your Information
We may use the information you provide to fulfill your requests for products, programs, information and/or services, to respond to inquiries offerings, and to offer you third party products, programs or services that may be of interest to you. We also use the information collected from you to better understand the demographics, interests and behavior of our collective audience or to deliver targeted advertisements and promotions. We do not share individual information about you with advertisers in the process, but rather as an aggregate to profile our collective audience. Our partners may also share the aggregate information we provide with third parties, or it may be shared with independent market research companies.
We may have to disclose information about you to law enforcement, other government officials or third parties in order to comply with applicable law or legal process (e.g. a court order or subpoena) or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
We do not make any representations or warranties as to the security of any information (including, without limitation, credit card and other personal information) you might be requested to give. We strongly encourage you to make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction.
