It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your Personal Data (that data which identifies or could identify you).

What Kinds of Information Do We Collect?

In order to provide our services, we collect information. Some information you provide directly to us, some we collect automatically through our Services, and some is collected from third parties. In this Policy, “Personal Data” refers to information that could be used, alone or in combination with other data, to identify you as an individual.

We collect information that you provide us.  For example, we collect information when you purchase a product or service, create an account, fill out a form, participate in a contest or promotion, request customer service, or otherwise communicate with us.

The types of Personal Data you may provide includes:

  • Contact information (such as name, email address, mailing address, and phone number);
  • Payment information (including payment card numbers and associated identifiers, billing address, and bank account information); and
  • Account log-in credentials (which for some Services may include social network credentials).

We use administrative, organizational, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the Personal Data we collect and process.

We encourage you to exercise caution in accessing Wi-Fi hotspots and other communications networks.

When you enter your Personal Data on our websites, we use Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology to protect your information as it is transmitted to us. To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit any information, look at your browser’s security level indicator to the right of the address bar or lower right corner of the window. If you see a solid key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then TLS is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or Location line of your browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from “http” to “https.”
