WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU DO WE COLLECT?
Generally, you may browse our Web Site without providing any PII. However, we may ask you to provide PII at various times and places on this Web Site, such as when you register for our services, subscribe to a newsletter, complete a survey or participate in polls, message groups or chat areas. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with requested information, you may not be able to access all of this Web Site or participate in all of its features. We may also provide you the opportunity to e-mail a friend an article, electronic greeting card or other special feature from our Web Site.
NOTE TO PARENTS REGARDING CHILDREN'S PRIVACY
Protecting children's privacy is important to us. We request that all visitors under 13 to our Web Site not disclose or provide any PII. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with PII, we will delete the child's PII from our records.
OTHER INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Log Data: When you visit this Web Site, our web servers automatically collect anonymous information that describes how our visitors use and navigate our Web Site, and which includes the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their stays, as well as the anonymous information automatically sent to us by your web browser, such as browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting our Web Site, and IP addresses. We also may determine what technology is available through your browser in order to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page. For example, we may determine that you have installed a version of Flash, and we will then send you the appropriate Flash version of the web page rather than an HTML page.
HOW WE USE AND DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We use the PII you provide about yourself to provide the information or content you have requested. For instance, sending you an email newsletter. If you e-mail someone else an electronic greeting card or other special feature from our Web Site, we will use the information you provide about someone else to send that person the requested e-mail. You may update your preferences at any time by returning to the registration area of the Web Site or Web Sites for which you registered.
We use non-identifying information collected on our Web Site in the aggregate to better understand your use of the Web Site and to enhance your enjoyment and experience. For example, we may use the information to improve the design and content of our Web Site or to analyze the services we offer.
We may provide access to your PII when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Web Site, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors of this Web Site or the public. In those instances, the information is provided only for that purpose.
We will not share your PII in ways unrelated to those described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
HOW TO ACCESS OR CORRECT INFORMATION OR MODIFY YOUR CHOICES If you visit our Web Site and volunteer PII, you may visit the registration area of the Web Site where you will have the opportunity to access certain of your PII, to correct errors in such information, and to update your preferences regarding what information you may receive from us. You will be required to enter your user name and password before you will have access to your information. It may take us up to twenty-four hours to process your changes, but we will do so as quickly as we can. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases.
DATA SECURITY We take physical, electronic and managerial steps to maintain the security and accuracy of PII we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
