How We Use Personal Information
We use information that we collect about a User or that a User provides to us, including any Personal Information:
To present our Site and its contents to a User.
To provide transactional information.
To provide a User with higher quality service by understanding where the User lives and the information in which the User is interested.
To provide a User with information or services that the User requests from us.
To fulfill any other purpose for which a User provides it.
How We Collect Personal Information
We employ commercially reasonable measures to protect each User’s privacy while visiting our Site, endeavoring to provide the most useful and enjoyable experience possible. This Policy applies to information we collect on this Site, in e-mail, text, electronic messages between Users and this Site, and through mobile and desktop applications downloaded from the Site.
We collect several types of information from and about Users of our Site. While a User can utilize many features of the Site(s) anonymously, Users are required to provide Personal Information to gain access to some of our content or services. Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, a User’s name, occupation, job title, e-mail address, mailing address, and phone number. For example, we may ask a User to provide us with Personal Information that can be used to contact or identify the User, including information that is provided by filling out forms on our Site. This includes information provided at the time of registering to subscribe to the Site or using the service.
We will sometimes aggregate a User’s Personal Information with that of many other of our Users in order to better understand our Users and their needs. We may supply such information to third parties to help us with our analysis or for them to use in their business. We will not sell or provide a User’s name, e-mail address, physical address, or telephone number to anyone for any purpose.
How We Collect Automatic Information
We may also collect automatic information such as browser type and version, browser language, operating system and platform, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect a User’s computer to the Internet. This information does not identify the User, but is statistical data utilized for analytical purposes and helps us provide more relevant services to Users.
How We Protect Personal Information
We have taken commercially reasonable precautions to protect the data and information under our control from misuse, loss, or alteration. However, since the Internet is a public and open facility, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. Our security measures include industry standard technology and equipment to help protect Users’ data. Unfortunately, no system can ensure perfect security and all Users should take steps to protect their information and transmissions, such as keeping login and password information secure and making sure to log out, or fully end the session, when finished using the Site.
Links to Third Party Sites
Compliance with Legal Process
Please be aware that we will release specific Personal Information about any User if required to do so in order to comply with applicable law or any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We may also choose to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
Users in California
We don’t share any User’s Personal Information, without the User's consent, with third parties for direct marketing.
California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits Users of the Site who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge. Under Section § 1798.83, we currently do not share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
