Identifying Information Submitted by You
The information we collect from you depends on the activities you are carrying out on this Site, whether you are logged in or not and whether you are making a purchase.
Whenever you visit our Site, we may collect non-identifying information from you, such as your IP address, interactions with the Site and our service, referring URL, browser, operating system, cookie information, usage, data transferred and Internet Service Provider.
Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a site. We may combine this information with other information we collect about you and use it to improve the Site, tailor our communications with you, and analyze use of our services.
We and our third party service providers (including but not limited to advertising and analytics companies) may place Cookies [and clear gifs] on your computer to collect information such as your IP address, the country and zip code you visited from, the search engine that referred you to the Site, pages of the Site you visited, products you browsed and purchased, and whether you came to the Site via a banner ad or email. These service providers may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on the service provider’s behalf. We do not authorize any of these service providers to use the information they collect for any purpose other than to provide their services for us, but we cannot assure you that they will comply with our requirements.
Site users have the option to accept or disable Cookies at any time through their browsers. If you choose to disable your Cookies, your user experience may be limited.
Uses Made of the Information
The information we collect from you is used to communicate directly with you. We may send you emails containing newsletters, promotions and special offers. We also use your information to send you service-related emails (e.g. account verification, purchase and billing confirmations and reminders, changes/updates to features of the Site, technical and security notices). You may not opt out of service-related emails.
If you choose to use our invitation service to invite a third party to the Site, we will ask you for that person’s email address and automatically send an email invitation to the invitee. We store this information to send this email, to register the invitee if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our invitation service. Unless the invitee becomes a registered user of the Site, we do not use the invitee’s email address for marketing purposes, and do not share the invitee’s email address with third parties other than our service providers. The invitee may contact us through the contact form at any time to request that we remove his or her information from our database.

- We share your information with trusted third parties who perform services for us in relation to activities such as customer relationship management and product development purposes such as consumer behavior analysis and improved product targeting;
- We buy or sell the Site or any combination of its products, services, assets and/or businesses. User information such as names and email addresses, and other user information related to the Site will likely be one of the items transferred in these types of transactions. We may also transfer or assign such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, dissolutions or similar transactions or proceedings.
