We are firmly committed to protecting your privacy. We understand user’s information is especially sensitive and that you may have concerns about sharing other personal information with us as well. We believe you should control the amount of information we receive about you. Where possible, we allow you to give as much or as little personal information to us as you feel comfortable providing.
We hope that you will want to provide information about yourself to us, because it will make your experience here more valuable to you, and help us achieve our goals. If you are comfortable sharing some basic information, you will receive enhanced services that are impossible to offer to anonymous users.
If you choose to interact with our Websites, you have our pledge to protect your privacy.
The Information We Gather
We gather traffic patterns and site usage information to help us develop the design and layout of the site and to personalize your browsing experience. As a standard practice, these statistics are anonymous.
This random number lets us keep track — on an aggregate basis (that is, summary, not individual) — of how many times users are doing specific things, such as visiting our site each month, without specifically knowing who those users are.
How we use the information
Our websites try to provide you with a compelling reason to return to our site. We monitor user traffic patterns and try to analyze what our users like and don’t like about our current offerings, so that we can design better services for you.
Our websites, from time to time, hire vendors to provide specific services, such as data analysis, data storage, email processing, and sweepstakes or promotion fulfillment. We require vendors to adhere to our confidentiality standards and to destroy any user data once the services are completed.
Except as explained in this policy, we will not share your personal information with any third party without first receiving your permission, unless we believe in good faith that the law or professional duty requires it.
Advertising and links to other sites
In some cases and from time to time we may have arrangements with third parties who provide or track sponsored links that we believe may be of value to our users. We do not permit these third parties to collect personal information from our users without the user’s explicit permission.
However, we cannot control the activities of any third parties once a user leaves our web site. If you have questions about the privacy policies of such third parties, we suggest contacting them directly or visiting their web sites to review their posted privacy policies.
