What personal data we collect and why we collect it
In order to better provide you with our numerous services, we collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our site.
Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on this site, such as registering for a membership or subscription, ordering a product or service, submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums or other public areas, entering a contest or sweepstakes, filling out a survey, or sending us feedback, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, we may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), e-mail address, telephone number(s), and other personal identifying information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our site in several ways, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. This information is analyzed in aggregate for us to analyze trends in the site’s audience and traffic. This information is also used to help us identify ways to improve your user experience on our site, and present information tailored to your interests.
Use of Any Information Collected:
- To improve the website, services and products or for record keeping on the back end! We strive to use the feedback and information that you give to make improvements to the website continually.
- To personalize users experience, as the information provided will help us to respond better to individual needs.
- Certain information will be useful when administering contest, survey, promotions or any other website feature.
- We might send out promotional emails with details about new product offerings, special giveaways and so on periodically. This information will be delivered by the email address that is provided.
How We Collect and Use Information
We do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to us when you:
- (a) register for our services and register your e-mail address with us;
- (b) enter sweepstakes or contests sponsored by us or one of our partners;
- (c) sign up for special offers from selected third parties;
- (d) send e-mail messages, submit forms or transmit other information by telephone or letter; or
- (e) submit your credit card or other payment information when ordering and purchasing products and services on our site.
We may also collect information from you at other points on our site that state that such information is being collected.
In addition, we may also collect, or our third party ad server and/or content server may collect, certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information. This information is ultimately stored in the form of store categories, and, in some cases, specific URLs. We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers, software, to administer our site and to gather demographic information. Our third party ad servers will also provide us with summary, but not individual, reports that will tell us how many ads were presented and clicked upon at our site.
Posting on Forums and Leaving Comments
You should be aware that when Personally Identifiable Information is voluntarily disclosed (i.e. your name, e-mail address, etc.) in the discussion forums or other public areas on this site, that information, along with any information disclosed in your communication, can be collected and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. Such activities are beyond our control and this Policy does not apply to such information. Any submissions to forums or other public areas on this site are accepted with the understanding that they are accessible to all third parties. If you do not want your comments to be viewed by third parties, you are advised not to make any submissions. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password and/or account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
All the necessary security measures are in place to prevent the unauthorized disclosure or access to your information. We are fully committed to ensure that every data is kept safe and secure. This includes using the most appropriate electronic, physical and managerial procedures to secure and safeguard any information that we collect.
Third Party Disclosure
We will not trade, sell or otherwise share personal identifiable information with outside parties. This doesn’t include any trusted third parties who provide us with assistance to operate the website, conduct business or service our clients, as long as they agree to keep the data confidential. In addition, your information might be released in situations which are appropriate to abide by the law, protect legal rights or enforce website policies. But, non-personal identifiable information for visitors might be send to other parties for advertising, marketing or other such uses.
Links to Third Party
At our discretion, we might sometimes offer or include third-party services or products on our site. These third-party sites will have different and independent policies for privacy, so we have no liability or responsibility for the activities and content on the linked sites. However, we welcome any kind of feedback about such sites because we want to protect our site’s integrity.
Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
We may disclose personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on our Website.
