1. Information Collected by the Company. The Company collects Personal Information and Non-Personal Information from its users. “Personal information” is any information that the Company could use to identify an individual. It does not include personal information that is encoded or anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public information. Examples of Personal Information that may be collected includes, but is not limited to:

 

                        i.         Your name, address, social security number, date of birth, telephone number and e-mail address.

                       ii.         Credit and debit card account information collected from you or your credit reports.

                     iii.         Miscellaneous information, such as city of birth and mother’s maiden name, used to verify your identity in the event you forget your login information.

                      iv.         Information you provide us through customer service correspondence and general feedback.

                       v.         Media content you choose to submit to us, such as commentary about our products and services, testimonials, or other similar content you share through video.

 

“Non-Personal Information” is information that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. The Company may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. Examples of Non-Personal Information AO1 that may be collected includes, but is not limited to:

 

      i.         Server Log Files. Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Site, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visited. We use your IP address, and the IP addresses of all users, for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose problems with the Site’s servers, and administering the Site. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many Sites.

     ii.         Cookies and Similar Technologies. We, our service providers, and/or non-affiliated third-parties, may use “cookies” or similar technologies on the Site. Cookies are data that a web server transfers to an individual’s computer for recordkeeping purposes. Cookies are an industry standard used by many Sites and can facilitate your ongoing access to and use of a particular Site; cookies do not cause damage to your computer systems or files. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a particular cookie, or cookies from a particular Site, to your computer. Additionally, please see the “Your Choices” section below for instructions on how to opt-out of sharing certain information related to the use of cookies.

   iii.         Environmental Variables. We and our service providers may also collect certain environmental variables, such as computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, OS version, Internet browser, and Internet browser version. These environmental variables are collected by most browsers and can be used to optimize your experience on the Site.

    iv.         Pixel Tags. We, our service providers, and/or non-affiliated third-parties, may also use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to, among other things, compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1×1), that is ordinarily not visible to Site visitors and may be associated with Cookies on the visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services, to provide online advertising, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted e-mail messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the e-mail has been opened.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF WE COMBINE ANY NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION, THE COMBINED INFORMATION WILL BE TREATED BY US AS PERSONAL INFORMATION AS LONG AS IT IS SO COMBINED.

 

2. Method of Collection. We collect personal information and non-personal information through the Site. While you may use the Site without creating an account, even without an account, the Company may collect Personal Information about your use of the Site.  This may include information about any Internet protocol address you use to access the Site and/or your activity or patterns of activity using the Site.  You authorize the Company to use cookies, or other small text files stored on your computer, server log files, environmental variables (such as computer type), pixel tags, and other non-personal information you voluntarily provide (such as geographic location) to store data about your visits and you authorize the Company to access such data.  

 

3. Information Disclosed to Third Parties. We may disclose information about you to affiliated and non-affiliated third parties. We will NEVER sell your Personal Information. Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not disclose to or share your Personal Information with third parties, unless you ask or authorize us to do so.

 

Your Personal Information may be transmitted to such to third party service providers and suppliers who work on behalf of or with us to provide you with some of the services and features of the Services and to help us communicate with our users (including in connection with payments), including without limitation any of the Company’s subsidiaries. THE COMPANY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY OF ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER’S ACTIONS OR INACTIONS.  You authorize the Company to provide such third party providers with your Personal Information.

  

We may (and you authorize us to) disclose information we have collected from and about you (including Personal Information) if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; (b) to enforce any agreement we may have entered into with you and to enforce the Privacy Policy; or (c) to protect and defend the rights or property of us, other users of the Properties, or third parties.

 

We may offer community features and public interactive forums, like discussion boards, product reviews, chat rooms, forums, wikis, social networking platforms and blogs. When you participate in such offerings, your username and other Personal Information you choose to provide or communicate in these public spaces may be seen by others, and you should exercise caution when disclosing such information and realize that information you post could remain viewable in cached or archived webpages or copied and stored by other users even after you remove it. We cannot control the actions of other users of our Properties, and we are not responsible for the results of your postings. Furthermore, when you participate in these interactive features, you may be agreeing to terms of use that, among other things, allow us to use your name and other information in our marketing and advertising.AO2 

 

We may share Non-Personal Information that cannot identify you with third parties. For example, we may disclose the number of visitors to our websites, the number of people who have downloaded a particular coupon or the number of people from a certain state who purchased a product from our third party partner.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT ADDRESS THE PRIVACY OR INFORMATION PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTIES.

 

In the event the Company goes through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your Personal Information will likely be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of the Company or its assets may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. You hereby consent to the Company sharing your Personal Information under the above circumstances.

 

4. Removal or Alteration of Your Personal Information.  If you provide the Company written notice of your request to remove your Personal Information, we will endeavor to remove it as quickly as possible.  You understand that any such removal is only intended to result in the removal of your Personal Information from the Company’s own records, but will not result in, nor will your request create an expectation of, any removal of any information about you from other available sources.

 

Corrections or updates to your information including your email address, phone number, mailing address, credit card information or password reminder phrase can be made by calling one of our representatives to have them update the information within your account. For your protection, our representatives may request supporting documents before making any changes or updates to your membership information.

 

5. Security Measures. We have security measures and tools, such as firewalls, in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please notify us of the problem as soon as possible.

 

6. Privacy of Minors. The Site and the Services are directed to people who are at least 18 years old.  The Company does not intentionally collect Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18. YOU ARE ONLY AUTHORIZED TO USE THE SITE AND THE SERVICE, OR TO PROVIDE THE COMPANY YOUR INFORMATION IF YOU ARE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD.

 

If you are aware that the Company has collected Personal Information from someone under the age of 18, please alert the Company via the contact information found on our Site, and the information will be removed from our system as soon as reasonably possible. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain his/her Personal Information without the parent/guardian’s consent. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 18, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our records.

If you provide any personal information through any such third-party Site, your transaction will occur on the third party’s Site (not the Site) and the personal information you provide will be collected by, and controlled by the privacy policy of, that third party.

Please see the browser’s instructions to perform this task. Additionally, the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) has developed an opt-out tool with the express purpose of allowing consumers to “opt-out” of the targeted advertising delivered by its member networks.
