We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information and while no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure from intrusion, we have used and will continue to use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the protection of your information. We continually assess new technology for protecting information and, when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.

Personally Identifiable Information: When we use the term ‘personally identifiable information’ we mean information such as your full name, street address, town or city, state, post code, telephone number, date of birth, e-mail address and any other information that would allow someone to identify you or contact you.
Although we may track the numbers of visitors to inform us on how best to update the Website and enhance the experience for all visitors, personally identifiable information is not extracted in this process. We use tracking information on an aggregated basis to help us operate the Website, enhance and improve the Service, improve the look of the Website and display advertising and marketing information.
We collect personally identifiable information about you when you visit the Website and input information, whether you are enrolling or signing up for features and functions, participating in promotions or in the course of any other exchanges of information, transactions and activities.

Third Parties on our Site: The Website may contain advertisements, references and links to other websites and organizations. We may also use third parties to display or serve advertising on the Website and our web-based newsletters. Often these third party advertising companies employ cookie and web bug technologies to measure advertising effectiveness. You should be aware that different rules may apply to the collection, use or disclosure of your information by third parties in connection with their advertisements, promotions and other web sites you encounter on the Internet. The use of such technology by these third parties is within their control and not ours, and even if we have a relationship with the third party, we do not control those sites or their policies and practices regarding your information and we encourage you to investigate and ask questions directly of them in this regard.
- when we have your consent (you ‘opt in’) to do so, in which case their use of your information is subject to their own privacy policies;
- when we have retained companies to work with or on behalf of us to provide goods or services that you have requested;
- when you use co-branded services – in which case you are giving us permission to pass any personally identifiable information you provide in the context of our co-branding and marketing relationship, back to our co-branding partner. Their use of your information is subject to their own privacy policies;
- when any of our subsidiaries, parent and/or affiliate companies are involved in developing, managing, maintaining, marketing, promoting, and/or by any other means supporting the Website and therefore they need to access your personally identifiable information to perform their services with respect to the Website;
- when we are compelled to do so by a governmental agency, court or other entity (e.g., to respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process);
- as and when we, in our sole discretion, believe such disclosure to be necessary or appropriate to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, to protect our business and assets, to defend our interests and/or to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations; or
- in the event of a bankruptcy, or a merger, acquisition, joint venture or other business combination involving us.
It is also possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
We do not sell or market your personally identifiable information to unaffiliated organizations. Some of the aggregate customer data we collect may be shared with advertising companies in order to enhance and improve the operation and relevance of the Website, but we do not give any personally identifiable information to them as part of this relationship. Use of their tracking technology is subject to their own privacy policies.
