Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email, this site or other direct contact from you.
Only those who fit into the following categories may receive information about you: our current and future parent companies, subsidiaries and affiliated entities; information your voluntarily share with a visitor or guest; our third party service providers, as we deem necessary in connection with the services being provided to us or on our behalf; in connection with a merger, sale, corporate reorganization or similar business transaction involving us, our parents, subsidiaries, affiliates; if unlawful or inappropriate activity is suspected, we might need to share certain information with the appropriate investigative authorities or when we are required or authorized by law to do so (for example, in response to a subpoena issued by a court); or if the information is already on the public record and the disclosure is directly related to the purposes for which it was recorded on the public record.
We collect personal information that you provide to us or that is otherwise provided to us on your behalf. You may choose to provide certain personal information in order to access or use certain features or services of the Site or the services, such as making a purchase, paying membership fees, requesting information, filling out an employment or contractor application, entering a sweepstakes, or otherwise contacting us. Such information may include your name, phone number, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card or banking information, membership and account information, services provided or other information. You can always choose not to provide information, but it may limit your ability to use a particular service on the Site or the services.
By providing your personal information to us, you are authorizing us to collect, use and disclose such information in the manner outlined in this policy. Unless we advise otherwise, your information will only be used for the purposes for which it was provided or in order to contact you regarding related matters. We limit the information we collect to what we feel is necessary for those purposes.
We may periodically send you newsletters, e-mails or similar communications featuring sales and promotions, news about our services, requests for your feedback, or other information we think may be of interest to you, in accordance with local law. You may stop receiving marketing communications from us at any time by following the instructions included in the message you received. However, if you unsubscribe from our marketing communications, you will not automatically become unsubscribed from the marketing communications you joined over which we have no control. We may use information you offer to provide you with tailored products or service offerings, to conduct member usage and market analysis, and to compile aggregated data sets for use in our marketing and business objectives.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time and ask us to delete or update any information we have about you.
Security for all personal information is extremely important to us. We store your personal information securely and use encryption and/or other special procedures designed to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can ever be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. We take commercially reasonable precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
For visitors using the site from outside the United States, we will comply with this policy and you expressly consent to transfer your information or data to U.S. If you are a resident of the European Union or provide personal information through this website while located in the European Union, we offer you certain choices in connection with the personal information we collect from you on this Site.
Users in the European Union may have the choice:
• to be provided with a copy of your personal data held by us;
• to request the rectification or erasure of your personal data held by us;
• to request that we cease processing your data;
• to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data (while we verify or investigate your concerns with this information, for example);
• to request that your data be transferred to you or a third party.
