1. Information We May Collect from You
We collect two types of information about our site users: Personally Identiﬁable Information and Non-Personally Identiﬁable Information.
Personally Identiﬁable Information is information that identiﬁes a speciﬁc end user. When you engage in certain activities on the site, such as creating an account, submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums, entering a contest or sweepstakes sponsored by us or our partners, ﬁlling out a survey, posting a review, sending us or our partners feedback, requesting information about our services, submitting an afﬁliate agreement, applying for a job, or signing up for special offers from third parties through the site (collectively, "Identiﬁcation Activities"), we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself. It is optional for you to engage in an Identiﬁcation Activity. If you elect to engage in an Identiﬁcation Activity, however, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your ﬁrst and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, telephone number and date of birth. Depending on the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identiﬁed as mandatory and some is identiﬁed as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that activity.
We use Non-Personally Identiﬁable Information to troubleshoot, administer the site, analyze trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. We may also share this information with our authorized Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming.
2. Release of Personally Identifiable Information
We will not share, sell, rent, or trade your Personally Identiﬁable Information with other parties except as provided below:
We may share your information with Authorized Third Party Service Providers.
We may provide services and products through third parties. These "Third Party Service Providers" perform functions on our behalf, like sending out and distributing our administrative and promotional emails. We may share your Personally Identiﬁable Information with such Service Providers to fulﬁll orders, deliver packages, send postal or email, administer contests or sweepstakes, remove repetitive information on customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, provide search results and links, process credit card payments, operate the site, troubleshoot, and provide customer service.
We may also collect personal information from individuals and companies ("Afﬁliates") with whom we have business relationships and may share your information with Service Providers to accomplish our administrative tasks.
We may remarket your information.
This information is used only for remarketing purposes and will not be used by them for any other purpose.
We may also use Remarketing Dynamic Ads. This feature uses the Teracent cookie and you may opt out of the Teracent cookie by visiting the Teracent opt-out page.
You can opt out of interest-based ads, including remarketing. This means, however, that you'll probably see advertising that's less relevant and useful. The opt-out is achieved by attaching an "opt-out cookie" to your browser -- a small file containing a string of characters that stores a preference for opting out.
We may share your information in a Business Transfer.
We may share your information for our Protection and the Protection of Others.
3. Release of Non-Personally Identiﬁable Information
We may disclose or share Non-Personally Identiﬁable Information with Partners, Afﬁliates and Advertisers. For example, we may share aggregated demographic information (which does not include any Personally Identiﬁable Information) with "Third Party Advertisers" or "Third Party Advertising Companies" and other parties.
We also use Third Party Service Providers to track and analyze Non-Personally Identiﬁable usage and volume statistical information from our users to administer our site and constantly improve its quality. We may also publish this information for promotional purposes or as a representative audience for Advertisers. Please note that this is not Personally Identiﬁable Information, only general summaries of the activities of our users. Such data is collected on our behalf, and is owned and used by us.
4. Data Tracking
Other Tracking Devices
We may use other industry standard technologies like pixel tags and web beacons to track your use of our site pages and promotions, or we may allow our Third Party Service Providers to use these devices on our behalf. Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on certain pages on our site, or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a speciﬁc action. When you access these pages or open or click an email, pixel tags and web beacons generate a Non-Personally Identiﬁable notice of that action. Pixel tags allow us to measure and improve our understanding of visitor trafﬁc and behavior on our site, as well as give us a way to measure our promotions and performance. We may also utilize pixel tags and web beacons provided by our Afﬁliates and/or Marketing Partners for the same purposes.

5. User Choices on Collection and Use of Information
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, although it may be required to engage in a certain activity on the site.
As a condition of use of our site, we will send you Administrative and Promotional emails. You cannot opt-out of Administrative Emails. "Administrative Emails" relate to a user's activity on the site, and include emails regarding a particular user's account, requests or inquiries, and purchases of products and services. In contrast to Administrative Emails, however, you do have a choice with respect to Promotional Emails. Promotional Emails advertise our products and services, including exclusive sales and other offers, and/or the products and services of our Advertisers and Afﬁliates. If you do not want to receive Promotional Emails from us, you may elect to opt-out of receiving Promotional Emails at any time after registering by sending us the "unsubscribe" email as provided for at the bottom of any of our e-mails or check appropriate boxes during your registration on our site.
6. Where We Store Your Personal Data
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
7. Security of Information
We take security seriously and take numerous precautions to protect the security of Personally Identiﬁable Information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which do the same, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the site, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.
8. Privacy Policies of Third Party Sites
9. Social Plugins
Our website uses social plugins ("plugins") provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb up icon) or the notice "Facebook Social Plugin". For a full list of all social Plugins please see http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge:
The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking "Like", or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website. Further you can block Facebook social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the "Facebook Blocker".
10. Public Areas on Our Site
We may provide areas on our site where you can publicly post information about yourself, can communicate with others such as discussion boards or blogs, or can review products, and submit media content. This information may be accessible by other consumers and companies and may appear on other sites or web searches, and therefore this information could be read, collected, and used by others. We have no control over who reads your postings or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so please use caution when posting any personal information. We do obtain consent from our users to post their name along with their reviews.
11. Access to Information
The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
We believe that you should have the ability to access and edit the Personally Identiﬁable Information you provide us. You may change any of your Personally Identiﬁable Information by logging into your account and accessing the "my account" section of the site. We encourage you to promptly update your Personally Identiﬁable Information if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past actions, you cannot delete information associated with past actions on the site. In addition, it may be impossible for us to completely delete all of your information because we periodically backup information.
