We col­lect this infor­ma­tion in serv­er logs and by using cook­ies and sim­i­lar track­ing tech­nolo­gies. See our Cook­ie Pol­i­cy, below, for more information.

Sta­tis­ti­cal Analy­ses. We use Google Ana­lyt­ics to help us gath­er sta­tis­ti­cal infor­ma­tion about the vis­i­tors to our Site and how they use the Site on an anony­mous, aggre­gate basis. How­ev­er, we will not asso­ciate this data with your per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able data unless required to do so to coop­er­ate with law enforce­ment activ­i­ty or oth­er gov­ern­men­tal request or to com­ply with law. We may use this infor­ma­tion to gain a bet­ter under­stand­ing of the users of our Site, to improve our Site, and to improve our ser­vices. Depend­ing on the type of brows­er and device that you use, you may have the abil­i­ty to con­trol the type of infor­ma­tion that Google Ana­lyt­ics use. To under­stand how Google Ana­lyt­ics col­lects and process­es data, please vis­it https://​google​.com/​p​o​l​i​c​i​e​s​/​p​r​i​v​a​c​y​/​p​a​r​tners. We reserve the right to license or sell aggre­gate, de-iden­ti­fied infor­ma­tion about the vis­i­tors to our Site, but this infor­ma­tion will not con­tain your per­son­al infor­ma­tion or oth­er­wise be indi­vid­u­al­ly identifiable.

We may use your per­son­al infor­ma­tion as we believe appro­pri­ate to: (a) inves­ti­gate or pre­vent vio­la­tion of the law or your agree­ments with us; (b) pro­tect our, your or oth­ers’ rights, pri­va­cy, safe­ty or prop­er­ty (includ­ing by pros­e­cut­ing and defend­ing legal claims); © pro­tect, inves­ti­gate and deter against fraud­u­lent, harm­ful, unau­tho­rized, uneth­i­cal or ille­gal activ­i­ty; (d) com­ply with applic­a­ble laws, law­ful requests and legal process, such as to respond to sub­poe­nas or requests from gov­ern­ment author­i­ties; and (e) where per­mit­ted by law in con­nec­tion with a legal inves­ti­ga­tion. For exam­ple, we may share infor­ma­tion with law enforce­ment to reduce the risk of fraud or if some­one uses or attempts to use our site for ille­gal reasons.

With Your Con­sent. In some cas­es, we may ask for your con­sent to col­lect, use, or share your per­son­al information.

How We Share your Per­son­al Information

We may use third par­ties to help us design and oper­ate the Site, pro­vide ser­vices to sup­port the Site, process your infor­ma­tion, and pro­vide pro­mo­tion­al and mar­ket­ing activ­i­ties on our behalf. For exam­ple, we may hire a com­pa­ny to run cer­tain web­site appli­ca­tions, help us ana­lyze our data, or send infor­ma­tion on our behalf about ser­vices and events in which you may be inter­est­ed. Unless oth­er­wise indi­cat­ed at the time we col­lect your infor­ma­tion, if we allow third par­ties to access the per­son­al infor­ma­tion we col­lect, we will have con­trac­tu­al pro­vi­sions or oth­er appro­pri­ate pro­tec­tions in place to ensure such access is for lim­it­ed pur­pos­es and in com­pli­ance with this Pri­va­cy Policy.

We do not share your per­son­al infor­ma­tion with third par­ties with­out your con­sent, except in the fol­low­ing circumstances:

Ser­vice Providers. We may share your per­son­al infor­ma­tion with third par­ty com­pa­nies and indi­vid­u­als as need­ed for them to pro­vide us with ser­vices that help us with our busi­ness activ­i­ties and to pro­mote our ser­vices to you. A list of our cur­rent ser­vice providers is avail­able upon request.

Busi­ness Part­ners. We may share your per­son­al infor­ma­tion with our busi­ness part­ners who offer a ser­vice to you joint­ly with us. A list of our cur­rent busi­ness part­ners that have access to cer­tain per­son­al infor­ma­tion we col­lect is avail­able upon request.

Secu­ri­ty, Com­pli­ance, Fraud Pre­ven­tion, Safe­ty; Com­pli­ance with Law. We may dis­close your per­son­al infor­ma­tion as we believe appro­pri­ate to gov­ern­ment or law enforce­ment offi­cials or pri­vate par­ties for the pur­pos­es described above under the fol­low­ing sec­tions: For com­pli­ance, fraud pre­ven­tion and safe­ty and for com­pli­ance with law.

Busi­ness Trans­fers. We may sell, trans­fer or oth­er­wise share some or all of our busi­ness or assets, includ­ing your per­son­al infor­ma­tion, in con­nec­tion with a busi­ness deal (or poten­tial busi­ness deal) such as a merg­er, con­sol­i­da­tion, acqui­si­tion, reor­ga­ni­za­tion or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy.

Your Choic­es

Con­se­quences of Not Pro­vid­ing Per­son­al Infor­ma­tion. You are not required to pro­vide all per­son­al infor­ma­tion iden­ti­fied in this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy to use our Site or to inter­act with us offline, but cer­tain func­tion­al­i­ty will not be avail­able if you do not pro­vide per­son­al infor­ma­tion. For exam­ple, if you do not pro­vide per­son­al infor­ma­tion, we may not be able to respond to your request, per­form a trans­ac­tion with you, or pro­vide you with mar­ket­ing that we believe you would find valuable.

Oth­er Impor­tant Pri­va­cy Information

Third Par­ty Sites and Ser­vices. The Site may con­tain links to oth­er web­sites and ser­vices oper­at­ed by third par­ties. These links are not an endorse­ment of, or rep­re­sen­ta­tion that we are affil­i­at­ed with, any third par­ty. We do not con­trol third par­ty web­sites, appli­ca­tions or ser­vices, and we are not respon­si­ble for their actions. Oth­er web­sites and ser­vices fol­low dif­fer­ent rules regard­ing their col­lec­tion, use and shar­ing of your per­son­al infor­ma­tion. We encour­age you to read their pri­va­cy poli­cies to learn more.

Secu­ri­ty. The secu­ri­ty of your per­son­al infor­ma­tion is impor­tant to us. We take a num­ber of orga­ni­za­tion­al, tech­ni­cal and phys­i­cal mea­sures that are designed to pro­tect the per­son­al infor­ma­tion we col­lect. How­ev­er, secu­ri­ty risk is inher­ent in all inter­net and infor­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies and we can­not guar­an­tee the absolute secu­ri­ty of your per­son­al information.

Inter­na­tion­al Data Use. We are locat­ed in the Unit­ed States and have affil­i­ates and ser­vice providers in oth­er coun­tries, and your per­son­al infor­ma­tion may be col­lect­ed, used and stored in the Unit­ed States or oth­er loca­tions out­side of your home coun­try. Pri­va­cy laws in the loca­tions where we han­dle your per­son­al infor­ma­tion may not be as pro­tec­tive as the pri­va­cy laws in your home country.

Ver­i­fy­ing, Chang­ing, and Delet­ing Your Infor­ma­tion. You can con­tact us as detailed below and ask us to change, update or fix your infor­ma­tion in cer­tain cas­es, par­tic­u­lar­ly if it is inac­cu­rate. You can also request that we erase or delete all or some of your per­son­al infor­ma­tion or oth­er­wise object to, lim­it, or restrict the use of such infor­ma­tion (if we have no legal right or legit­i­mate busi­ness inter­est in retain­ing such information).
