USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Internal Use of Private
Information In general, we use Private Information internally to serve our users, to enhance and extend our user relationships so our users may take maximum advantage of our products and services. For example, by understanding how you use our Site from your computer, we are able to customize and personalize your experience. More specifically, we use Private Information to provide services or to anticipate and resolve problems with our Site, or to respond to customer support inquiries, and to create and inform you of new products or services from Company or others that may better meet your needs. You should review the following section to understand when Company discloses Private Information to non-affiliated third parties.
Use and Disclosure of Private Information
The following section describes these uses and disclosure practices more fully:
• Internal Analysis. We may use information about you or your company for our own internal statistical, design, or operational purposes, such as to estimate our audience size, measure aggregate traffic patterns as well as to understand demographic, customer interest, and other trends among our users. We may outsource these tasks to third parties; however, the third parties may not use or disclose your personal information for any other purposes.
• Business Transfers: Information about our users and the Site is one of our most important business assets. Therefore, information about our users, including personal information, will be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business to provide the Site or fulfill products, sale or pledge of Company assets as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the Company.
• Protection of Company and Others: As referenced above, we release personal information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply our policies; to protect our rights or property, or to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, our Site; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
Security of Private Information
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of Private Information in our custody and control. We also are committed to employing reasonable technology in order to protect the security of our Site. However, even with the best technology, no Site is 100% secure. We will take reasonable measures which we believe are appropriate to protect your Private Information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction, and, where possible, will ask that any third parties to whom we may transfer such information to take comparable steps to protect that security. Although we will exercise great care to provide a secure transmission, we cannot guarantee that the Private Information you submit to us will be free from unauthorized third party intrusion. You, therefore, understand and agree that all information you submit to Company or post on the Site is done so at your own risk.

Please be aware that we may provide links to third party websites from the Site as a service to our users and we are not responsible for the content or information collection or use practices of those sites. Accordingly, we hereby expressly disclaim all responsibility and liability which may arise therefrom or in connection therewith.
