We use personal information we collect to respond to your inquiry or request, to provide, improve, and develop our services, to tailor your user experience, to prevent fraudulent usage of our services, and for the other purposes described in this policy. In addition, we may use your email address to deliver targeted marketing messages from us. You may opt-out from receiving these marketing messages by following the instructions provided below. If we will be transferring your personal information to a third party, we will do so only after disclosing the transfer to you. You may also provide personal information to us in other ways, such as by requesting user support or sending us a resume.

Usage tracking - We may collect personal information from your use of our services. For example, we may collect information about user traffic and usage patterns throughout our site, and similar information regarding the use of our services. We may also track click-through information, such as IP addresses, from the messages we send to our users.

Protecting Children & take special care to protect the safety and privacy of children. Our web sites are general audience sites, and we do not permit anyone under the age of 13 to register with us. We also do not send email correspondence to anyone who has told us that they are under the age of 13.

Children under the age of 13 should always ask their parents or guardians for permission before providing any contact information to anyone online. We urge parents and guardians to participate in their children's online activities and use parental controls or other web filtering technology to supervise children's access to the Internet.

Non-personal information

We may also collect information that is not personally identifiable, and may aggregate personal information or otherwise render it anonymous (that is, non-personally identifiable). We may use this anonymous information for various purposes and may share it with third parties.

Disclosure of personal information

We may provide personal information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies and other trusted businesses or persons for the purpose of providing our services and for our other purposes described in this policy. We limit the personal information shared with these third parties to that which is necessary to carry out those functions. Except as described in this policy, we will not provide your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes. We may share personal information with third parties in order to carry out a user's request or if we believe that doing so is legally required or is in our interest to protect our property or other legal rights (including, but not limited to, enforcement of our agreements), or the rights or property of others.

Links and Third Party Sites

This site contains links to third party sites. Any personal information that you provide to such third party sites, including any partner, is subject to that third party’s privacy practices and policies, not this policy. We encourage you to learn about their privacy and security practices and policies before providing them with personal information.

Business transfers

Information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, or sale of company assets, as well as in the unlikely event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as one of our business assets.

International Visitors and Customers

This site is hosted in the United States, and we provide our other services from the United States. If you use our services from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States. The United States does not have the same data protection laws as the EU and some other regions. By providing your personal information, you consent to the transfer of your personal data to the United States and the use of your personal information, in accordance with this policy.


The security of personal information is important to us. We use security measures reasonably calculated to protect personal information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. For example, when we collect sensitive personal information, we use an encryption technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to protect it while in transit. However, no transmissions over the Internet, and no data security measures, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot represent or guarantee that any information, including personal information, will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

Such activities are beyond our control. Please do not post any personal information that you wish to keep private anywhere on the site.

Changes to Privacy Policy

Internet dynamics continually change and it is possible that this policy could undergo slight changes, although any such changes would most likely be minimal. However, if we make any material changes to the policy, we will post the updated policy and update the “Effective Date” above. If, as a result of the change, we will treat your personal information in a way that is materially less restrictive than under the previous version of this policy, we will notify you of the updated policy and provide you with an opportunity to opt out from change.
