How do you use my information?

Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, our customer, with a customized experience. This includes personalization services, interactive communications, online shopping and many other types of services. In order to provide relevant services, we display advertisements. By knowing a little about you, we are able to deliver more relevant advertisements and content, and therefore better service, to you.

We carry out research into our users' demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us upon enquiry, during a promotion, from our server log files or from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. At no point are our users' personal identification information attributed to this research. We follow the various Codes of Conduct concerning market research practices. We may share this aggregated data with advertisers or business partners.

Who will the information be shared with?

The information we provide to such third parties is protected by a confidentiality agreement and is to be used solely for completing the specific project.

We may partner with another party to provide other specific services. When you sign up for these services, we will share your name or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.  We do not authorize these parties to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
