(AS OF FEBRUARY 1, 2017)
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We use commercially reasonable efforts to treat your information in a confidential manner. Our employees are trained and required to protect the confidentiality of your information. Employees may access your information only when there is an appropriate reason to do so, such as to administer or offer our products or Services. We also maintain commercially reasonable administrative, physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information to the extent required by applicable laws to safeguard information in our possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. Our employees are required to comply with our established policies and procedures; provided, however, no one can guarantee the complete safety of your information.
HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION AND THE TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect personal information when you register for any of our Services, when you use the Services, when you visit our website or our business partners, and when you enter promotions, drawings, or sweepstakes. We may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
When you register we may ask for certain information about you, including, but not limited to your name, address, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, and personal interests. We also collect information about your transactions with us and with some of our business partners. We store and may analyze all communications content from or to you, including information received from your computer and browser, including your IP address, cookie information, software and hardware attributes, and the page you request. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we may obtain and use the following information from and about you:
Registration Information is the information you submit to register for a Service, for example, to create an account, post comments, receive a newsletter, or enter a contest or sweepstakes. Registration Information may include, but is not limited to, name, address, email address, gender, zip code, birthday, or other information that is not otherwise publicly available.
Information and Posts consist of comments or content that you post using the Services and the information about you that accompanies those posts or content, which may include a name, user name, comments, likes, status, profile information and picture.
Activity Information. When you access and interact with our Services, we may collect certain information about those visits, such as information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. If you access the Services from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device, geolocation data (including your precise location), or other transactional information for that device.
Cookies & Similar Technologies. Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies) are comprised of small bits of data. We may set and access cookies on your computer. We may also set and access device identifiers which could include IP address, user agent information (browser version, OS type and version), and device provided identifiers. Once you log into the Services on your device, we may recognize your device to provide you with a personalized experience, independent of your device settings. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about your usage of the Services, such as pages you have visited, content you have viewed, search queries you have run, and advertisements you have seen. We may let other companies that advertise on some of our pages set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies’ use of their cookies and device identifiers is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to our cookies.
Information from Other Sources. We may supplement the information we collect with information from other sources, such as publicly available information from social media services, commercially available sources and information from our affiliates or business partners.
OUR USES AND DISCLOSURES OF YOUR INFORMATION
We use the information we collect from and about you to provide the Services and features to you, including: to measure and improve those Services and features and to develop new products and services; to improve your experience with both online and off-line Services by delivering content you will find relevant and interesting, including advertising and marketing messages; to allow you to comment on content, and participate in online information sharing, contests, sweepstakes, promotions, or rewards programs; to provide you with customer support and to respond to inquiries. In order to provide you with content and advertising that is more interesting and relevant to you, we may use the information from and about you to make inferences and predictions about your potential areas of interest. When the information collected from or about you does not identify you as a specific person, we may use that information for any purpose or share it with third parties, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
We use the information we collect from and about you for these additional purposes:
As Required by Law. We will use or disclose your information when required to do so by applicable international, federal, state or local law. For example, and without limitation, we may disclose your information if we reasonably believe you are a victim of abuse, neglect, or domestic violence to the appropriate state agency as required or permitted by applicable state law; we may disclose your information to the police or other law enforcement officials as required by law or in compliance with a court order or other lawful process; or we may disclose your information in the course of a judicial or administrative proceeding in response to a legal order or other lawful process.
Health or Safety. We may disclose Your Protected Health Information to prevent or lessen a serious and imminent threat to a person’s or the public’s health or safety.
Specialized Government Functions. We may disclose your information to units of the government with special functions, such as any branch of the U.S. military or the U.S. Department of State.
Research. We may use or disclose your information, for purposes of research if we first confirm that your privacy rights will be protected, for instance if a privacy board or Institutional Review Board determines that your privacy will not be put at risk and informs us of its determination.
Management of the Services. The information we collect from and about you may be made available to certain third party service providers, such as contractors, analytics and other measurement companies, agents or sponsors, who help us analyze and understand your use of the Services, and manage and/or provide the Services.
To contact you. We may periodically send promotional materials or notifications related to the Services. If you want to stop receiving promotional materials, you can follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email. There are certain service notification emails that you may not opt-out of such as notifications of changes to the Services or policies. If you have installed a mobile app and you wish to stop receiving push notifications, you can change the settings either on your mobile device or through the app.
