COLLECTION AND USE OF DATA
Our site’s registration form requires users to give us contact information (such as name and e-mail address), unique identifiers, and geographic information (such as location, device type, preferred browser, etc.). We use this information to enhance the site so that it can offer you a more personalized experience. We also use the information to communicate information you may have requested from us, information about our company, promotional material such as contests, questionnaires and surveys, and promotional material from some of our partners. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings by using the tool explained in the “Updating and Removal of Data” section below. Unique identifiers are collected to verify the user’s identity, for use as account numbers in our record system, and for other purposes. Geographic data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor the user experience, showing you content that is most likely to be of interest to you, and displaying the content according to your preferences. In certain instances, you may elect to communicate in real time via a live chat session with a representative of our company. We may store all or a portion of said live chat sessions for our internal business purposes. Please do not submit any confidential, proprietary, or sensitive personally identifiable information (e.g., Social Security Number, date of birth, driver’s license number; or financial information). If you submit any of this or similar information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission.
