We have structured our Site so that, in general, you can visit us on the Web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. However, certain portions of this Site will require you to register and provide information that may personally identify you. Some pages of this Site may be P3P-enabled, which allows you additional control over your personal information. Furthermore, if you contact us via email, we will have obtained your email address. We use the information we gather to enhance the user experience on this Site, to authenticate visitors and to send notifications to visitors about our products/services, contests, and special events and offers.
This Site permits you to create a user profile, which may include personal information about you (“Personal Information”), including your name, your picture, the name of the companies with which you are affiliated, physical address information, email information, telephone numbers, user IDs and passwords, your age, billing and transaction information, contact preferences, educational and employment background, employer names, demographic information and information about your social media accounts, such as Twitter and Facebook (“Profile Information”). We will receive and record this Profile Information. You are not required to create a profile. If you create a profile, you have the ability to control which Personal Information is included in your profile. We bear no responsibility for any Profile Information you choose to include in your profile, and you are solely responsible for the accuracy and correctness of Profile Information.
We do not collect payments or payment information, such as credit card numbers or bank account numbers.

These third parties, companies, and individuals may have access to Personal Information as necessary to provide those services and perform their functions. We do not process or collect payments, credit card information or bank account numbers. The privacy policies of the third parties will apply to the Personal Information you submit, rather than this Policy, and our Site will contain a link by which you can access the payment processor’s terms and conditions, and privacy policies.

If we transfer your Personal Information to a third party that is acting as an agent, we will ensure that the third party subscribes to the safe harbor principles or is subject to The European Commission’s Directive on Data Protection or another adequacy finding. As an alternative, we may enter into a written agreement with the third party requiring that the third party provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the safe harbor principles.

We will send your Personal Information only to the latest e-mail address you have on file with us.

We have commercially reasonable safeguards and security procedures to keep Personal Information confidential and secure from unauthorized access, disclosure, use, alteration, unlawful destruction, or accidental loss. We have procedural safeguards, such as authentication procedures to prevent ID theft. We also restrict access to Personal Information to only those employees who need to know the information to provide products/services to you.
We do not guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat these measures or access and use Personal Information for improper purposes. We assume no liability in those circumstances, nor for any Personal Information once it is transported onto a managed communication network (including the Internet), other than this Site.
