USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

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.

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.
