How you can access, update or delete your Personally Identifiable Information
1. What information do we collect from or about you?
In this Policy, we refer to two types of user information: Personally Identifiable Information (sometimes referred to as “PII”) and non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information refers to any information that can be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate you. Examples of Personally Identifiable Information include a name, physical address, e-mail address, and telephone number.
The Company collects only the PII that you voluntarily provide to us. If you purchase the Services, you will be asked to provide your credit card and related information for billing purposes.
You might also be asked for, or choose to provide, additional information about yourself that does not, itself, specifically identify you. This is non-Personally Identifiable Information. Some non-Personally Identifiable Information, such as your age and gender, may be required (or merely requested) when you purchase the Services, and may be associated with your PII.
Company may also automatically collect other types of non-Personally Identifiable Information as you use the Services, including technical information (such as your internet protocol (“IP”) address, mobile device ID, or browser type) and usage information (such as location data, preferred language, the parts of the Website you have visited, which links you have clicked and other information about how you interact with the Services). This information is anonymous, and is not associated with your PII, although it may be associated with other pieces of anonymous information about you.
2. What do we use your information for?
Your Personally Identifiable Information may be used in the following ways:
To e-mail you newsletters or tips about how to use the Services, inform you of product updates, or notify you about our own special offers or those of our third-party partners; and
Non-Personally Identifiable Information may be used in the following ways:
To enable us to generate aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction;
To customize your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs);
To show you advertisements most relevant to your demographic characteristics;
To make improvements to the Website and Services; and
To inform potential partners and advertisers about the size and characteristics of our audience.
3. Do we disclose any information to other parties?
The Company does not sell or trade your Personally Identifiable Information to outside parties. We may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to vendors who help us operate the Website, conduct our business or provide the Services to you, such as credit card processors, customer service centers, or e-mail marketing providers. All such partners are bound to keep your information confidential.
We may disclose Personally Identifiable Information, including to local, state, or federal law enforcement officials, when we believe in good faith that the law requires such action, or when required to do so by order of a court or other compulsory legal process. We may also share Personally Identifiable Information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or to prevent harm to the Website.
We may use or distribute information about you and your use of the Services in ways that do not reveal Personally Identifiable Information. For example, we share anonymous user information with advertisers and advertising networks to enable the display of targeted, relevant advertisements. We may also provide anonymous usage data or summary characteristics of our audience to potential partners and advertisers or post such information on publicly accessible areas of the Website.
4. How secure is your personal information?
