Personal information we collect includes your name, mobile phone number, email address, and payment information (such as payment card number, security code, billing Zip code and expiration date). In addition, we may take Personal Information you provide to us and aggregate it with information of other users and customers. To the extent that we can still identify you with this aggregated information, we will treat it as Personal Information.

B. Information We Receive from Third Parties
We may receive information about you (including Personal Information) from third parties. For example, if you are on another website and you opt-in to receive information from us, that website will forward to us your email address and other information about you so that we may contact you as requested. You may also choose to participate in a third party application or feature (such as one of our pages on Facebook or Twitter or another social platform or website) through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including Personal Information.
2. Personal Information Use and Sharing
When your Personal Information is collected on the Services, it may be shared with selected third parties who assist us with our business operations, with the provision of the Services, with our marketing or advertising campaigns, or in delivering you the features and functionality that you have requested (“Third Party Processors”). These Third Party Processors include companies that send text messages or emails to authorize you to use the Services, process payment card information, and deliver materials to you via e-mail, for example. Third Party Processors are authorized to use the Personal Information that we provide to them to carry out the service they are providing for us, to manage, maintain, or improve their services, to combat fraud, or as required by law. We require the Third Party Processors by contract to have reasonable measures in place to secure your Personal Information and maintain it so that it can be accessed when needed for future purposes. All such Third Party Processors are contractually bound by us to keep the Personal Information confidential. Certain third party processors have additional rights to use Personal Information:
As part of the Services, we will prepare and maintain information collected from the Services that is aggregated or otherwise altered so that it does not directly identify you and cannot reasonably be linked to you. We and our licensees, vendors, service providers, third party processors, and agents use and share such information for business purposes.
We or our Third Party Processors may disclose your Personal Information without your permission (i) pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders or otherwise to comply with law; (ii) where we believe the rights, property or an individual’s safety or security is at risk; (iii) if we find that your actions violate our Terms of Serviceor any of our other legal rights; or (iv) where otherwise required or permitted by applicable law (which may include a lawful access request by US or foreign courts, governments or law enforcement agencies).
If we buy, merge, reorganize or sell any business or business assets, Personal Information and non-personal information will likely be disclosed or transferred as part of the transaction. If, in connection with a purchase, sale, merger or reorganization your Personal Information will be processed in a materially different way, our practice is to notify users who have provided us with an e-mail address via e-mail.
3. Other Information
A. Our Use of Other Information
We and third parties acting on our behalf use data collection technologies to help us to manage the operations of our Services and track usage behavior. These data collection technologies include:
ii. Web Beacons and Pixel Tags
We may also use web beacons and pixel tags (also known as web bugs and clear GIFs). Web beacons (also called single pixel gifs, clear GIFs, or web bugs) are Internet tools, such as transparent images on the Services or in emails that we may send you, that help us to determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed or an email opened. For example, when you ask us to send you information, we may use web beacons to determine how many of the emails we sent were actually opened. A pixel tag is a type of web beacon embedded in an image on the Services. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page, including a banner ad, may contain a pixel tag. We may use web beacons and pixel tags to help us optimize and tailor the Services for you and other future visitors to the website. Web beacons allow third parties to obtain information, such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the web beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the web beacon appears, the time the page containing the web beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies sent by the third party.
iii. Local Storage and Local Shared Objects
We may use local shared objects (LSOs) such as Flash Cookies and local storage, such as HTML5 Local Storage, to enhance user experience. Local storage is similar to browser cookies but can store data more complex than simple text. By itself, local storage cannot do anything to or with the data stored on your device. Like cookies, local storage can only access Personal Information that you have provided on the Services. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on the Services or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity may also use Flash cookies or HTML5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5. To manage Flash cookies, pleaseclick here.
Information that we collect via the data collection technologies described in this section may be linked to other information about you and may be Personal Information. We may use the technologies described in this section, alone or in combination, to provide, manage and administer the Services, understand user behavior, target and measure the effectiveness of advertisements, send follow-up emails and advertising after visits to the Website, help diagnose problems, recognize repeat visitors, track and analyze usage behavior, facilitate your access to and use of the Services, or optimize the performance of the Services.
Your browser, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari, may allow you to manage your cookies and local storage. Because each browser is a little different, we encourage you to check your browsers’ “Help” feature to learn how to block cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, and how to disable existing cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of all the Services and some parts of the Services may not function properly.
B. Use of Other Information by Third Party Processors
Our Third Party Processors may use the data collection technologies described in Section 3(A) in the same ways that we use those technologies. Third Party Processors are authorized to use the data collection technologies only to carry out the service they are providing for us, to manage and improve their services, and as required by law.
C. Use of Other Information by Third Parties for Analytics
We contract with third parties, including Google Analytics, that use data collection technologies to track, analyze and report data about the use of the Services and to analyze and optimize the performance of the Services. Information about Google Analytics is available at http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html and http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.
D. Digital Fingerprinting and Cross-Device Linking
Our service providers may use certain technological measures and third party databases and services to engage in digital fingerprinting and cross-device linking. These technologies may passively collect information about your device to develop a digital identifier for your device, which is then stored on your device to identify the device in various online transactions. This information is combined with other information regarding your use of the Services and third party databases and may be combined with information from your Account, including Personal Information. The device data that is collected by our service providers may be maintained to create a history and reputation of a particular device to help reduce online fraud and recognize your device in connection with the Services and advertising.
4. Third Party Tracking
Third parties, other than our third party processors and vendors, do not have authorization from us to track which websites you visited prior to and after visiting our Services. That said, we cannot control third party tracking and there may be some third party tracking that occurs without our knowledge or consent.
For more information about the Ad Partners’ technologies and how they use the information collected by the technologies on the Services and your options not to accept cookies placed by some Ad Partners on the Services, visit the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) at http://www.networkadvertising.org to change your consumer preferences with respect to certain online ads and to obtain further information about third party ad networks.
The opt-out described above is device- or browser-specific and may not work on all devices. If you choose to opt-out through the mechanism in this section, you still may see advertisements but the advertisements from NAI participants will not be based on your interests.

You may not unsubscribe to communications regarding your Account, your Subscription or the Services.

We may request certain Personal Information for the purposes of verifying the identity of the individual seeking access to his or her Personal Information records.
You can also opt-out of future information collection from the Services by cancelling your Subscription.
7. Links from the Services
Some of the Services use third party operating systems, platforms, communication services, devices, and software elements (such as mobile device operating systems, wireless services, mobile phone and tablet devices), and some of the Services are provided by third party distributors, device makers, device operators, platform operators, and communication services. We do not control these third party entities, products and services, and they may collect, use, process, transmit and disclose your information. For example, these third party entities, products and services may gather information from the Services in a manner that overrides your settings and preferences in the Services. As we do not control of these third-parties’ data handling practices, we recommend that you review their privacy policies, terms of service and license agreements (if any).
We have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures intended to protect your data. Please understand, despite these efforts, we cannot guarantee the security of your information given the current state of the Internet. Any transmission of information is at your own risk. We cannot guarantee protection of all electronic information from interception, misappropriation, misuse or alteration. We cannot guarantee that your information will not be disclosed or accessed by accidental circumstances or the unauthorized acts of third parties.
Our Services are not intended for children, and we will not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13.
We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose online. If we learn that we have collected the Personal Information of a child under 13 without verifiable consent, then we will use reasonable efforts to delete the child’s information from our databases.

Please note, however, that your request that we delete your submission does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of your submission. Your submission may remain on backup media, cached or otherwise retained by us for administrative or legal purposes or your submission may remain publicly available if you or someone else has forwarded or re-posted your submission on another website or service prior to its deletion.
