User Generated Content. We offer you opportunities to post comments and engage in public activities on the Website or in connection with the Services, in each case that are designed to be visible to other users. Any information you disclose in your public activities, along with your screen name or ID, or any image or photo, becomes public and may be used by the Company for online and offline promotional or commercial uses in any and all media. If you choose to engage in public activities, be aware that any Personal Information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of the Website or the Services, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages.

We may track and aggregate your public activities on the Services and on the Website. By choosing to participate in public activities you are electing to share and display such public activities via the Services and/or the Website. Also, public activities may be included in RSS feeds, APIs, and made available to other websites via other formats. As a result, your public activities may appear on other websites, blogs, or feeds. Keep in mind that we are not responsible for any Personal Information you choose to make public via your public activities, and you agree that such sharing will be deemed to have been done by you, not the Company.
Contests, Sweepstakes and Special Offers. The Company may collect Personal Information from you in connection with optional sweepstakes, contests or special offers, which information may be shared with third parties in order to facilitate such contests, sweepstakes or special offers. If you do not want any such Personal Information shared, you may always decline to participate in the sweepstakes, contest or special offer.
Surveys and Other Market Research. The Company may collect Personal Information from you in connection with voluntary surveys and other market research. The information you provide may be shared with the Company’s advertisers and partners, but only in the aggregate, unless we notify you otherwise at the time of collection.
Device Information.

Cookies, Beacons, Local Storage and Other Similar Technologies. In providing the Services and the Website, we may use “cookies,” Web beacons, HTML5 local storage and other similar technologies to manage access to and use of the Services and the Website, recognize you and provide personalization, as well as to help us understand where our visitors are going and how much time they spend there. You may not be able to access certain aspects of the Services, including portions of the Website, if your computer does not accept cookies from us.
IP Addresses. The Company may log Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We use this information in an aggregate fashion to track access to our websites and mobile applications.

HOW WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
The Company obtains the categories of Personal Information listed above from the following categories of sources:
- Directly from you – Personal Information that you input into the Website or any mobile app maintained by us, provide to us via email or over the telephone, provide to us in person at any event in which the Company is participating, or provide to us on written forms.
- Records and copies of your correspondence (including email addresses), if you contact us through email or other correspondence.
- Third-party sources – Personal Information from sources such as LinkedIn and social media websites used by you.
The technologies we use for data collection may include:
- Clear GIFs: We employ a software technology called clear gifs (aka web beacons/web bugs), that helps us better manage the content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of a sentence. We do not currently tie the information gathered by clear gifs to your Personal Information, although you agree that we may do so in the future. We use clear gifts in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails recipients have opened. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see “E-Mail Opt Out Policy” below.
- Log Files: As is true of most websites, we gather information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
When you use the Website, we may receive “do not track” requests from you, whether via signals from Web browsers or other mechanisms. At this time, we do not respond to such “do not track” requests, although we may choose to do so in the future.
We do not currently purchase any Personal Information from third parties for use in the Company’s business, although we reserve the right to do so in the future.
We neither place ads on third parties’ websites, nor support ads on the Website, in each case that collects users’ Personal Information for purpose of customizing those ads or otherwise. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to do either or both in the future.
WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Notwithstanding any other provision, we partner with third parties that collect information across various channels, including offline and online, for purposes of delivering more relevant advertising to you or your business. Our partners may place or recognize a cookie on your computer, device, or directly in our emails/communications, and we may share Personal Information with them if you have submitted such information to us, such as your name, postal address, email address, or device ID. Our partners may link the hashed or obfuscated personal information we share with them to the cookie stored on your browser or device, and they may collect information such as your IP address, browser or operating system type and version, and demographic or inferred-interest information. Our partners use this information to recognize you across different channels and platforms, including but not limited to, computers, mobile devices, and Smart TVs, over time for advertising, analytics, attribution, and reporting purposes.
