If you provide us with personal information about another person, you represent and warrant that you have the right and authority and have obtained all necessary consents to provide us with such information.
Company may also collect information about your use of our Sites, which may include, but is not limited to, the frequency of user visits to the Sites, the routes by which users access the Sites and use hyperlinks available on the Sites and other clickstream data. Company may collect information about a users’ browser type, operating system type, users’ IP address, including general location information, the length of time a user visits our Sites, the pages they view and activities they engage in, and date and time stamps, the referring URL, or the webpage that led a user to our Sites. Company or its service providers and agents may process and use this data for various purposes including, but not limited to, analysis of this data for trends and statistics, development of the Sites and the Sites’ features and offerings, assessing patterns of use, or planning and evaluating marketing initiatives. This information is gathered by certain tools and methods such as cookies, pixel tags, log files, java script and other technologies. We may combine this information that we collect about your use of our Sites, with other information, including personal information we collect about you.
Like many websites, Company and our third party service providers utilize “cookies” to maintain a record of your visit to the Sites. A cookie is a small text file that is transferred by a web server and stored on the hard drive of your computer. It can only be read by the server that sent it to you. This information does not identify you personally and you remain anonymous unless you have otherwise provided Company with personal information.
Cookies help Company to improve the Sites and to deliver more personalized service by enabling Company to estimate audience size and usage patterns; to store information about your preferences; to speed up your searches and to recognize you when you return to the Sites.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. If you would prefer to prevent your computer from accepting Company’s cookies, you may follow your Internet browser’s steps for doing so. Please note, however, that if you do disable cookies from your browser, you may not be able to access certain sections of the Sites.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other technologies. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Sites to, among other things, track the activities of visitors to the Sites, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage of the Sites. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML emails to our customers, to help us track email response rates, identify when our emails are viewed, and track whether our emails are forwarded.
Do Not Track. Currently, our systems do not recognize browser “do-not-track” requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies); you also may opt-out of targeted advertising by following the instructions in the Third Party Ad Network section.
Third-Party Ad Networks
- United States. Users in the United States may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Consumer Choice Page, at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, as well as that Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) Consumer Opt-Out Page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/, for information about opting out of interest-based advertising by DAA members and NAI members, respectively.
- Users in Canada may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (“DAAC”) Opt-Out Tool at http://youradchoices.ca/choices/ for more information and to opt out of interest based advertising by certain ad networks.

Opting out of one or more of ad networks (many of which may be the same) through the above only means that those members no longer will deliver targeted content or ads to you. It does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on our Site or other websites. For example, you may continue to receive advertisements based on the particular website or page that you are viewing. Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit this opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your opt-out(s) may no longer be effective.
