We may use your personal information to contact you about goods and services that may be of interest to you via various means including e-mail. You may at any time choose not to receive marketing materials from us by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each e-mail you may receive, or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We may also use or disclose your personal information as required by law, or when we believe that such use or disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, or the rights of others, or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us.
How We Share the Information We Collect:
We may share your personal information with our affiliates and service providers who we use to support our services and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. We may share with other third parties aggregated information about our users that does not identify any individual. We may also share your personal information with a sponsor or other third party ("Third-Party Provider") that provides you with special offers or promotions that may be of interest to you. You may instruct us at any time not to share your personal information with such Third-Party Providers by emailing us at email@example.com. Please note that this opt-out process may take some time to complete, consistent with applicable law. Furthermore, we may share your personal information potentially in conjunction with a sale or similar transfer of a business.
We take many precautions to protect your personal information from unauthorized third party access, alteration, theft, or misuse. For example, we use standard online security measures such as encryption and authentication to protect your credit card data. We also require that our suppliers protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
We and third party advertisers may place or read cookies on your computer or use other electronic tools, such as web beacons, to collect technical information that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include information about your computer and internet connection, such as your operating system and browser type, and details of your visits to our Web Sites, including traffic data, location data, logs and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on the Web Sites. The information helps us analyze web traffic, determine targeted advertisements, facilitate automated activity, store and track passwords, and determine appropriate solicitations. We do not collect personal information automatically, but we may tie this information to personal information about you that we collect from other sources or you provide to us.
You may delete or disable cookies to prevent us from collecting the above information.
