INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USAGE
We collect certain personal and non-personal information in connection with the creation of accounts and administration of our Website. Except as set forth in the Privacy Policy or in the Terms of Use, your personal information will be deemed to be confidential. Any non-personal information or material provided to us will generally be deemed to NOT be confidential.

Your personal information may be released to third parties (a) if we are required by law to comply with a legal requirement, such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order; (b) if release of such information is required in connection with the maintenance and administration or our site; or (c) in the very rare circumstance in which we believe in good faith there is a threat to the rights, property or safety of us or others. Although it is our policy to attempt to require our third parties to whom we provide personal information to comply with our privacy policies, we cannot guarantee their compliance.

Our additional practices and policies with respect to our collection and usage practices are addressed as follows:

Many websites automatically collect this information. Any such information would be used to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Website.


COOKIES
We may use cookies on certain pages of our Website. Cookies are small pieces of information that your web browser places on your computer's hard drive. Cookies can help us personalize our Website and provide information that is targeted to the interests of individual users (for instance, so you don't see the same advertisements repeatedly). We may use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, to save your password so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our Website, and for other purposes.

CORRESPONDENCE
If you send us personal correspondence, such as e-mails or letters, we may collect and retain such information.


REGULATORY ISSUES
Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example, and without limiting the foregoing, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Further, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate. Therefore, although we believe we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise that your personally identifiable information or private communications will remain private.

Only those employees, agents and representatives who require access to your personal information are granted access to the data (e.g., marketing product managers, system administrators, customer service representatives, and engineering personnel). Access to your data by employees is further limited by being solely available through a dedicated administrative interface and through use of a restricted user ID and password. Our internal web security policies are reviewed and revised on a regular basis.
