  1. Cookies

We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. Cookies collect data regarding a user’s visits to the Website; this data is stored in aggregate form. We may use cookies to, among other things, track repeat visits to the Website and the sites of our partners, determine features you like best, customize content specific to your interests, ensure that you do not see the same advertisement repeatedly, and store your password (if applicable) so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the Website. The Website may also use pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs and other similar technologies. These may be used in connection with the Website and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, track the actions of users of the Website and email recipients, measure the success of marketing campaigns, and compile statistics about the Website’s usage and response rates.

Although we may track the numbers of visitors to inform us on how best to update the Website and enhance the experience for all visitors, Personal Information is not extracted in this process. We use tracking information on an aggregated basis to help us operate the Website, enhance and improve our service, improve the look of the site and display advertising and marketing information. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie or image tag is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all such devices. This is done through your browser. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many features at the Website that make your Internet experience more efficient and enjoyable, and some of our other services may not function properly.

The Website may contain advertisements, references and links to other web sites and organizations. We may also use third parties to display or serve advertising on the Website. Often these third-party advertisers employ cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs and similar technologies to manage and measure advertising effectiveness. You should be aware that different rules might apply to the collection, use or disclosure of your information by third parties in connection with their advertisements, promotions and other web sites you encounter on the Internet. The use of such technology by these third parties is within their control and not ours. Even if we have a relationship with a third party, we do not control their site(s) or their policies and practices regarding your information.

  1. Confidentiality and Security of Personal Information

Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we will keep your Personal Information private and will NOT use it or share it with third parties, unless such use or disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with a court order or other legal process or respond to requests from public and governmental authorities (both within and outside the United States); (b) protect our rights or property or defend our interests; (c) enforce this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use, or (d) as otherwise permitted by applicable law, including laws of jurisdictions outside the United States and/or the country of your residence. We may disclose Traffic Data for the same purposes.

We also may disclose Personal Information and Traffic Data to third party service providers that provide services to us such as website hosting, data analysis, payment processing, order fulfillment, IT services, customer service, email delivery services, and other similar services, in each case to enable them to provide such services. Such third party service providers with which we share information agree to keep such information confidential and abide by the terms of this Privacy Policy, and not to use such information for any purpose other than to perform the services for or on our behalf or as otherwise required by law.

As noted above, in certain situations we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests from public or government authorities, including to satisfy national security or law enforcement requirements. We may also disclose your Personal Information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, your safety, or the safety of others, or to investigate fraud.

Your Personal Information is stored on secure servers. We provide you with the capability to transmit you Personal Information via secured and encrypted channels if you use a similarly equipped web browser.

The Website contains links to other sites on the Internet. We are not responsible for the privacy or security practices, actions or the content of such sites or the third parties that control such sites, and we disclaim any responsibility if such third party sites do not provide adequate security for or privacy of your information. We suggest contacting the parties controlling such sites or accessing their online policies for the relevant information about their data collection and privacy policy practices.

  1. Remarketing and Retargeting

We may use third-party remarketing services (such as Google AdWords, AdRoll, and Facebook) to advertise on third-party websites to previous visitors of the Website.
