Information We Collect & Technology Used
We collect “personally identifiable information” and “usage information”.
“Personally identifiable information” is information that tells us who you are, such as your name, physical address, and e-mail address. “Usage information” is information automatically collected by our web server (which may be hosted by a third-party) that your web browser makes available whenever you visit or use our Service, such as your computer’s IP address or browser type.
We may collect personally identifiable information when you create an account with our Service, edit or update your account information or profile, make a purchase, participate in certain activities via the Service, or if you voluntarily choose to provide it to us (e.g., by posting it on the Service). For example, we may collect your first and last name, mailing address, e-mail address, phone number and geographic location.
You can choose not to provide personally identifiable information to us. However, if you do not provide certain information (e.g., name and email address), you will not be able to create an account so your ability to use the Service will be limited to those web pages available to unregistered users of the Service, and you will not be able to purchase products from us or purchase a subscription to our Service. Additionally, most browsers can be configured to reject cookies or alert you when cookies are being sent. However, if you refuse to accept cookies, it is possible that some portions of the Service may not function as intended.
We may collect “usage information” anytime you view and/or interact with our Service or its pages, features and functionality. For example, we may collect your IP address, browser type, operating system version, and information regarding your geographic location and browsing activities (e.g., information about the website that you visit before or after visiting the Service)
This Service may also use “cookies” and other technologies to recognize users, customize their experience or serve advertisements. A cookie is a small text file that a website’s server places on a user’s computer, mobile phone or other device. The cookie transmits information back to the website’s server about the browsing activities of the computer user on the site. This includes information such as pages and content viewed, the time and duration of visits and whether a computer user clicked on an advertisement. Cookies also can be used to recognize users and maintain data related to a particular individual, including passwords.
In some contexts, such as where a number of separate websites participate in a network, cookies and other technologies can be used to track a computer user across different sites.
As important as cookies are to our Service, we understand that this might make you uncomfortable. If you would prefer not to accept cookies from our Service or any other website, you can modify the settings on your web browser. You may refer to your browser’s online help feature or user manual for instructions on how to do this. If you refuse to accept cookies, it is possible that some portions of the Service may not function as intended.
Disclosure and Use of Information We Collect
We may also disclose certain personally identifiable information publicly if we choose to use such information for advertising and marketing purposes. For example, we may use your name and other content that you submit (including photographs and text) in advertisements that are publicly disseminated (online or elsewhere). We will always request your permission first.
We may provide your personally identifiable information to our suppliers who will deliver your order and/or provide billing services, and to third parties who provide services to us.
We use usage information to help us run and maintain our Service, customize the visitor’s experience, study traffic patterns, service our online community, generally learn about the usage of the Service and provide a more seamless experience on the Service. We may disclose this information to our affiliates and third parties, including, but not limited to, our advertisers.
We may use and disclose personally identifiable information and usage information when we have reason to believe that using and/or disclosing this information is necessary to investigate, identify, contact, or take action against someone who may have engaged in illegal activities or breached our Terms & Conditions of Use or who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other users of our Service, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We may also disclose personally identifiable information when we reasonably believe that the law requires it.
We may tailor advertisements on the Service and elsewhere to a user’s apparent interests, based on that user’s online activity. That is, ads may be displayed for you online based on the pages and content that you view.
