- INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE PRACTICES
2.1. What Information My Site Collects. In operating my Site or otherwise offering Services, I may include registration, online surveys, and other online forms that ask users to provide their names, e-mail addresses, age group, birth date and other contact information, as well as the following categories of information: income range, country of residence, zip code, and gender.
2.2. Additional Information Collected. (a) Automated collection. My servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses. No personal information about you is revealed in this process. My Site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes to improve the services I offer. (b) Cookies. From time to time, I may use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allow me to store a small piece of data on your computer about your visit to my Web site. I do not set any personally identifiable information in cookies, nor do I employ any data capture mechanisms on my website other than cookies. Cookies help me learn which areas of my site are useful and which areas need improvement. You have control over the management of cookies. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you choose to disable this function, your experience at my web site may be compromised and some features may not work as they were intended.
2.3. What I Do With The Collected Data. (a) Personal Information. I will not share your personal information with any third parties without your consent, except as necessary to provide you with the services offered by me or to comply with the law. I may also use your contact information to inform you of any changes to my Site or Services. I sometimes partner with business partners that may have promotional material to share with you, but I will always get your permission during the account registration process before I share your contact information with my business partners. (b) Anonymous Information. I use anonymous information to analyze my Site traffic, but I do not examine this information to an in-depth degree, nor do I analyze your individually identifying information. Traffic and transaction information may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on an aggregate and anonymous basis. (c) Cookies. Cookies are used to deliver content specific to your interests, to save your password so you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit my Site, or for other purposes. Cookies make online life easier, but as mentioned above you have control over how you use them. Promotions or advertisements displayed on my Site may contain cookies. I do not have access to, or control over, information collected by outside advertisers on my Site. (d) Disclosure of Personal Information for Lawful Purpose. I may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the decrees of the law or comply with legal process served on me, (2) protect and defend the rights or property of my Site or the users of my Site or Services, or (3) act under crucial circumstances to protect the safety of the public or users of my Site or Services. (e) Sale of Information. In the event, that my Site was to be sold, it would be my obligation to provide information collected through my Site or otherwise collected in connection with the Services. If my Site were acquired by a purchaser, customer information will be one of the assets transferred to the purchaser. (f) Access to Information. Unfortunately, I do not maintain any procedures for you to review or request changes to the information that I collect about you, except that you may request that I remove all information about you from my database by contacting me in accordance with Section 5.1 below.
My Site and the Services have security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that I obtain from you, but I make no assurances about my ability to prevent any such loss, misuse, to you or to any third party arising out of any such loss, misuse, or alteration.

If you choose to visit other websites, I am not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those other websites, and it is your responsibility to review the privacy policies at those websites to confirm that you understand and agree with their policies.
