The Site places a small file known as a “cookie” on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie may contain information that allows The Site to track your path through the Site and to determine whether you have visited The Site before. However, unless you register, it contains no personally identifiable information that would allow identifying you. Cookies cannot be used to read data off of your hard drive, and cannot retrieve information from any other cookies created by other Web sites. The Site uses cookies in this manner to help understand how visitors use the Site, and to help improve the Site. You may refuse to accept a cookie from The Site by following the procedures specific to your Web browser. Although you may do so, you may find that your browser doesn’t properly react when visiting not only The Site, but other Web sites as well. Please note that since cookies don’t provide The Site with any information from which you are identifiable, The Site suggests you allow placing one on your computer so you can fully enjoy the Site’s features.

How the personal information is used

The Site may use your personal information to periodically contact you with news or important information from The Site, with communications from other members, and/or to request your feedback on the Site. In addition to these periodic updates, The Site may email you additional materials, but only if you specifically request them. These might include opt-in newsletters and other materials that you proactively request from The Site. The Site may also use certain information that you provide in order to present you with advertising that you may find interesting.

Disclosure of your personal information

The Site does not sell or rent any personal information to any third party. The Site may aggregate personal information from all users and provide that information in the aggregate to other parties, including advertisers, for marketing and promotional purposes. However, if The Site does so, that information will not be in a form that will allow any third party to identify you personally.

The Site may also share your personal information with third-parties specifically engaged by The Site to provide services to The Site (such as market research firms, marketing services providers and advertising agencies), in which case The Site will require those parties to agree to use any such personally-identifiable data solely for the purpose of providing the specified services to The Site. As you might expect, The Site must cooperate with legal authorities, and may in some circumstances be required to disclose personally identifiable information in response to requests from law enforcement authorities, or in response to legal proceedings. The Site does not expect this to happen, but if it does, The Site will provide only the information required. The Site can also turn over information about you if thought to do so in order to prevent a violation of the law, and by accepting this policy, the User consents to The Site doing so, at The Site’s sole discretion. The User also consents to The Site disclosing personal information in the course of legal proceedings if the is legally required to do so. The Site also may share your information in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, and in the unlikely event of insolvency.

Steps taken by The Site to protect your personal information

The Site has implemented security procedures to help protect the personal information stored in its systems. For example, accesses to personal information about you to employees who are believed reasonably need to come into contact with that information is limited. While The Site implements appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect against unauthorized or unlawful processing of personal information and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to personal information there is no way for The Site to guarantee the absolute security of your personal information.
