THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you use the Services, we may receive and collect certain personal information. The information we receive and collect depends on what you do when you use the Services. Some information may be provided by you voluntarily. For example, you may share information with us when you submit comments or other content through the Services, when you register for an account through the Services, or when you interact with us on social media platforms.
Automatically Collected Information.
Some information is automatically received and sometimes collected from you when you use the Services. This information may include some or all of the following items: the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, including the Internet protocol (IP) address of the device you are using and/or the IP address of your Internet Service Provider; the type and version of Internet browser software you use and your operating system; the type and version of your media player(s); the date and time you access the Services, the length of your stay, and the specific pages, images, video or forms that you access while using the Services; and demographic information concerning the country of origin of your device and the language(s) used by it. We use this information to monitor the usage of our Services, assess performance, ensure technological compatibility with your device, and understand the relative importance of the information provided through the Services. We may also use this data to conduct statistical analyses on visitors’ usage patterns and other aggregated data.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Services.
“Web beacons,” are digital images we use to log information on our Services and in our emails. We use web beacons to manage cookies, count visits, and to learn what marketing works and what does not. We also use web beacons to tell if you open or act on our emails.
Personal Information about Children
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. However, we advise all users of our Services under the age of 13 not to provide any information on the Services. In the event that we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided information to us, in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protect Act (see the Federal Trade Commission’s website at http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/privacyinitiatives/childrens.html for more information about this Act), we will delete the child’s information from our files to the extent technologically possible.

HOW WE USE AND SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION
In general, personal information you submit to us is used either to respond to requests that you make, or to aid us in serving you better. We use your information in the following ways: to identify you as a user on our Services; to operate, maintain, and improve our Services; to personalize and improve your experience; to send you email or other communications (e.g., we may send you an email to solicit feedback about our Services or for other administrative purposes); to respond to your comments or inquiries; and to protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity.
We may share your personal information with third-party service providers for the sole purpose of providing our Services to you. For example, we may share data with service providers who host our websites or provide email services on our behalf.
We may also share information about you in connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, transaction or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets to another company.
We may also share de-identified and/or aggregated data with others for their own uses.
If you are a California resident and have an established business relationship with us, California Civil Code Section 1798.93 permits you to request a notice disclosing the categories of personal information we have shared with third parties, for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, during the preceding calendar year. To request a notice, please submit your request by using the contact information provided herein.
Not Subject to HIPAA or Other Laws Governing Health Information
We are not a healthcare provider and are not subject to compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or to other U.S. federal or state laws related to patient health information. Users are required under our Acceptable Use Policy to avoid providing individually identifiable health information (as defined by HIPAA) to the Services.
We take commercially reasonable steps to help protect your personal information in an effort to prevent unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Despite these measures, you should know that we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with information. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Any content you submit while using the Services is at your own risk. If you have any questions about security on our Services, you can contact us at the contact information provided herein.

ACCESS TO AND MANAGING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We believe it is important for you to be able to find out what personal information you have provided to us through our Services. If you have provided us with personal information, you can contact us to request that we provide you with the information we have in our records about you. We reserve the right to limit the number of times such a request can be made and to charge you for responding to such requests if this process is misused or abused. You may contact us using the contact information provided below to inquire about your information, and to correct, amend or delete such information. We want the information we have on record about you to be as complete and accurate as possible. If you believe that any information we have in our records about you is inaccurate, incomplete or incompatible with the purposes for which it was provided or subsequently authorized by you, please notify us using the contact information provided below.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You have several options when deciding how you can best protect your personal information. One option is simply not to volunteer it. As stated above, this approach may allow you to still access our Services, although it may prevent you, for example, from taking advantage of some of our Services’ features. The Federal Trade Commission’s Website, http://www.ftc.gov, also offers useful information about how to protect information that you provide to websites or applications.
USE OF ELECTRONIC MAIL
We may provide email or messaging links on the Services to further facilitate communication between us and you. Personal information collected through email and messaging may be shared with our customer service group, employees or other third parties that perform services on our behalf. Unless otherwise noted, email or messaging through our Services is not a completely secure and confidential means of communication. Non-encrypted email or messaging communications may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users without your knowledge and permission while in transit to us.
