Ordering: Customers may be asked to provide certain personal information when  they sign up for our Products or Services including name, address, telephone number, billing information (such as a credit card number), and the type of personal computer being used to access the Services. The personal information collected from Customers during the order process is used to manage each Member’s account (such as for billing purposes). This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances.

However, in instances where our company and a partner jointly promote our Services, we may provide a partner certain personal information, such as the name, address, and user name of persons who subscribe to the Services as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the partner to assess the results of the promotion.In this instance, personal information may not be used by the partner for any other purpose.

As explained in more detail below, we may use his aggregated and non-identifying information to sell advertisements that appear on the Services.

Our Company Partners And Sponsors: Some products and services may be offered to Visitors and Customers in conjunction with an affiliate, independent contractor seller or non-affiliated partner. To provide Visitors and Customers some of these products and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain personal information. In these instances, you will be notified before any such data is collected or transferred and may decide not to use that particular service or feature. Additionally, our partners may have advertisements or co-branded Web Pages that are co-sponsored by an affiliate, independent contractor seller, or non-affiliated partner. Our company may share non-identifying and aggregate information (except as described above), but not personal information, with such partners in order to administer the co-branded products or services offered.

Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information we have collected, we may then display or send the advertisement to the intended audience.
