Your enjoyment of the Sites is important to us. We want to make things easy and simple. As part of the operation of the Sites, we gather certain types of information about our visitors, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, what we do with it and how o correct or change the information.
The Sites collect two types of personally identifying information from users: personal data (such as names and e-mail addresses) that make it easy for you to participate: and aggregated data (such information about traffic patterns and other general usage).
Personal Data is collected and stored when you provide personal data on a Site, for example, registering with the Site, posting messages in forums or video comments section, in answering surveys, and registering for contests and other promotional opportunities provided by us. Also, we collect the email addresses and screen names of users who post message to our message boards and chat areas. When you type personal data in a web page, we collect and keep it.
We allow users who have provided Personal Data access to their information to ensure that it is correct and to make any changes and/or to delete it by contacting us at the email address set forth above.
Please note that:
When you post a message on any Site, you may have the ability to post a message that may include personally identifiable information about yourself.
If you post contact information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Aggregated information, such as which pages users access or visit and information volunteered by users, such as survey information and/or site registrations, is collected through various methods. For example, the Sites log IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address, and when you request a page from any Site, our servers log your IP address.
IN SOME JURISDICTIONS, LEGAL AUTHORITIES MAY TREAT IP ADDRESSES AS PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION. BY YOUR USAGE OF OUR SERVICES, YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THE FOREGOING NOTICE AND CONSENT AND OPT-IN TO OUR COLLECTION OF YOUR IP ADDRESS PER THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET FORTH HEREIN.
