We may store any information you enter on the Company Site or give us in any other way (your “Personal Information”). This Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. Also, when you visit the Company Site, we or third-parties acting on our behalf may place a “cookie” (a text file containing a randomly assigned number) on your computer so that we have the ability to customize the look and feel of the Company Site for you. You are always free to set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although doing so may impede your use of certain of the Company Site’s features.

While we or third-parties acting on our behalf use information about our users on an aggregated basis and will often share such data with unaffiliated third parties, this information, by its aggregate nature, contains none of your Personal Information. When we refer to an “unaffiliated” third party, we mean one that (i) is not controlled by us, (ii) does not control us, and (iii) is not controlled by the same party controlling us.
(a) if required by law, regulatory or court order, or legal process;
(b) if we determine that doing so would be in the public interest (i.e., if we were to suspect that you were using the Company Site in connection with the commission of a crime);
(c) in connection with a sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization, or liquidation of the Company;
(d) if you provide such information to us in connection with a promotion of a good or service offered by a third party, for purposes of such promotion, including, without limitation, sharing such information with that third party;
(e) to provide you with certain services on the Company Site that are provided by such parties, as reasonably required to provide such services and;
(f) in the context of working with third-party contractors engaged by us in the provision of the Company Site or related matters.
After we or third-parties acting on our behalf disclose your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties in such instances, we can no longer control the use or further disclosure of your Personal Information. Consequently, we or third-parties acting on our behalf will not be responsible to you for such use or further disclosure.

We or third-parties acting on our behalf do not ensure or otherwise warrant the security of information that you provide. We do use the tools that are commercially available to secure our systems, monitor them and adopt new and better tools as they become available.
