Credit Card Information
To the extent that payment method or credit card-specific information is collected at the Website and any of our affiliates and/or subsidiaries, said information will be kept in confidence and will not be shared with any third parties (other than consumer credit agencies) without your prior informed consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company and our affiliates and/or subsidiaries reserve the right to share with third parties the fact that they have credit card information on file for specific users but they will not share specific credit card information with third parties without the user's prior informed consent.
Use of personal information
We collect information in several ways from different parts of the Website. From the visitors to our Website, we track domain, host, and/or Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Some personally identifiable information is gathered when you register in part or in full for one of our many services or promotions. Registration with the Website is required to participate in any promotions or sweepstakes at the Website. We may allow you to co-register (simultaneous registration with another third party website and our Website) to participate in some of our services and promotions or those of third party Websites, as well. During registration, we may ask for information such as your name, mailing address, email address, phone numbers and the like.
We may also ask you for personally identifiable information at other times, including when you report a problem with the Website. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence, as well. From time to time, the Company may ask users to complete surveys that we use for research or other purposes. We may also offer users the opportunity to utilize other resources, services, forms, or tools, from which we may also collect your personal information.
By entering a sweepstakes or promotion, registering with our Website, completing any forms on our Website, or by checking or not unchecking co-registration boxes, you grant the Company the right to use the collected information for marketing purposes including, but not limited to, sharing such information with third party advertisers ("Advertisers"), emailing, or physically mailing Company or any third party offers to your email address or postal address. We may also use such information to fulfill prizes, track compliance with the applicable sweepstakes or promotion rules, or for content improvement and feedback purposes. We may sell the personal information that you supply to us and we may join together with other businesses to bring selected retail or service opportunities to our user base. These businesses may include providers of direct marketing services and applications, including look-up and reference, data enhancement, suppression and validation. In addition, the Company reserves the right to release current or past user information in the event we believe that the Website is being or has been used in violation of any sweepstakes or promotion rules; to commit unlawful acts; if the information is subpoenaed; if the Company is sold or acquired; or when the Company deems it necessary or appropriate. By agreeing to these terms, you hereby consent to disclosure of any record or communication to any third party when the Company, in its sole discretion, determines the disclosure to be appropriate.
We may share Website usage information about our Website visitors who have received targeted promotional campaigns with Advertisers for the purpose of formatting future campaigns and upgrading visitor information used in reporting statistics.
The Company also reserves the right to provide aggregate or group data about our visitors and users for lawful purposes. Aggregate or group data is data that describes the demographics, usage, or characteristics of our participants as a group, without revealing any personally identifiable information. By subscribing to the Website, you agree to allow us to provide such data to third parties.
To comply with the CAN SPAM act we may at times need to provide private data (such as an e-mail address) to be shared with marketing partners to facilitate mailing list removal requirements only.
Cookies and Other Tracking Methods
(1) Remind us of who you are and to access your registration preferences to deliver to you better and more personalized service. Cookies enable us to retain our users preferences on the Website without having to re-enter information every time they access the Website.
(2) Estimate our audience size. Each browser accessing the Website is given a unique cookie which is then used to determine the extent of repeat usage and to help us communicate with you. This information collected by cookies is sometimes called "clickstream" or "click trail" and may also describe which pages you have seen.
(3) Measure certain traffic patterns, which areas of the Website you have visited, and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. We use this research to understand how our users' habits are similar or different from one another so that we can make each new experience on the Website a better one. We may use this information to better present the content that users will see on our Website.
We use industry-standard methods to protect your personally-identifiable information from unauthorized access. We store such information on a computer behind our "firewall" in a secure location, and we restrict the number of employees internally who can access such data. Our Website uses strong encryption technology to ensure the security of its users' information. Encryption is a method of scrambling messages so they cannot be read without decryption keys. The length of the key used to encrypt messages is a good indication of the amount of effort needed to decrypt that message. Any software with encryption features having key lengths over 40 bits is considered strong encryption by the U.S. Government for export purposes. Our Website uses 128-bit encryption, one of the highest encryption standards available on the Internet today. Users visiting our site will be able to submit credit card numbers or other personal information to our site with assurance that they are interacting with a website owned and operated by the Company (and not an impostor) and that the information that they are sending to us cannot be intercepted or decrypted by anyone other than the intended recipient.
Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, the Company cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information anywhere online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining your personal information. If you voluntarily disclose it other than in accordance with our policies, it will not be protected. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
The Company does not endorse, nor is the Company responsible for the accuracy of or the Advertiser's compliance with, the privacy policies and/or terms and conditions of each of the Advertisers websites. The entities that advertise and/or place banner ads on the Website, including, but not limited to Advertisers, are independent third parties and not affiliated with the Company.

No information should be submitted to, or posted at this Website by visitors under 18 years of age. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate and monitor the activities of their children.

Review and Removal of Your Personally Identifiable Data
If you provide us with personally-identifiable information, usually we will provide you with a way to review the information we have on file and either make changes or remove such data. To the extent that such information is also stored in other databases, we cannot always ensure that such corrections or deletions will reach the other databases.
