We collect personal information from the Site users over 13 years of age in order to provide users with a personalized online experience and to provide our advertisers a way to reach the right audience. We may share the personal and aggregate information we collect with our affiliates and other sites operated by and for us.
On a confidential basis, we may also share personal information with our corporate affiliates or consultants, or with third parties that perform a particular service on our behalf (such as fulfilling orders or for general administration purposes for the Site). We may share aggregate information with third parties for advertising and promotional purposes. If all or part of the Company is sold, merged, or is otherwise transferred to another entity, the information you have provided on or through the Site may be transferred to such entity as part of that transaction. We may also disclose personal information in response to legal process, such as a request by law enforcement, a court order or subpoena, or to protect the integrity of the Site if we believe that a user has committed unlawful or otherwise harmful acts (please refer to our Terms of Service).
With the permission of users 13 years or older, information submitted at the time of registration or submission may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by us and, also with the permission of the user, may be shared by us with companies that have agreed with us to use this information only for the marketing and promotion of its products and services.
If any individual submits content for publication, we may publish his or her name and any other information submitted by that individual.
If a user elects to use our “Email to a Friend” referral service for informing a friend about the Site, we ask for the friend’s email address, and we will send an email in response to the user’s request inviting their friend to visit the Site. This information is stored at the Site solely for the purpose of sending the email.
