Except as otherwise provided in our Privacy Policy, Terms of Use and/or Disclaimer, Company reasonably endeavors to ensure that we never intentionally disclose Personally Identifiable Information (such as, without limitation, individual names and e-mail addresses) about you to third parties unless you give us permission to do so.

Company reserves the right to use your Personally Identifiable Information to contact you regarding matters relevant to the underlying services provided and/or the information collected.

We may share user information, including Personally Identifiable Information, with our representatives, owners, successors, directors, officers, shareholders, suppliers, employees, volunteers, contractors, distributors, agents, licensees, licensors, assigns and/or persons, companies and organizations acting under Company’s permission or authority. We may transfer user information, including Personally Identifiable Information, as an asset in connection with a proposed or actual merger, acquisition, sale of assets (including any transfers made as part of an insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding) involving all or part of our business or as part of a company reorganization, stock sale, or other change in control, or by operation of law or otherwise without notice to you.

In some cases, these Third-Party Entities or Company or both may collect your information, including Personally Identifiable Information, directly from you.

Third-Party Entities or Company or both may also use your Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information to send you by e-mail or other means a transaction receipt.

As is true of many websites, we may use one or more third-party analytics providers to track and measure the traffic and usage patterns on our Site, so we can improve the content of the Site and better manage and measure the effectiveness of advertising on the Site. Employing cookies and other tracking technologies, third-party analytics providers collect and store Non-Personally Identifiable Information about users and provide it to us in a way that cannot be reasonably used to identify specific individuals. The types of data collected by third-party analytics providers may include, without limitation: the type of computer, operating system, connection speed, browser type and language you use; your Internet service provider; your IP address and general location (city, state, country); the date and time of your page requests; the areas of the Site that you visit; the amount of time you spend on various areas of the Site; the search terms you use on the Site; the number of clicks you make; any referring and exit pages and URLs; the links and advertisements you click; the contents of any undeleted cookies and other tracking technologies that your browser has previously received; and usage and demographic data generated from your use of this Site and possibly from other data sources.

We may collect Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information from you in order to conduct optional special offers, promotions, surveys or contests.

Likewise, third parties may share with us for any purpose users’ Non-Personally Identifiable Information such as, without limitation, marketing, sales, advertising, demographic and other data generated from this Site and possibly from other data sources.

Company reserves the right (but does not have the obligation) to disclose user information, including Personally Identifiable Information, in special cases where we have a good-faith belief that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action or arbitration proceedings against someone who may be violating our Terms of Use, Privacy Policy or Disclaimer, or may be causing injury or interference with our rights, property, users or anyone who could be harmed by such activities. We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information about you to comply with any valid legal inquiry or judicial proceeding such as, without limitation, a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order.
