Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on every page of our site.
The Way We Use Information
We use email addresses to confirm registration upon the creation of a new account. We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. On occasion we may send email to addresses of registered users to inform them about changes or new features added to our site.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
We may use user-provider geographic information to improve the IP geolocation provided on our site. If you do not wish to provide this information make sure that W3C geolocation services are set to "Prompt" or "Don't Share" in your browser of choice. Geolocation information may be shared with partners.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above unless required by law.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
