Uses We Make of Information
We create aggregate data about visitors to our Web site for product development and improvement activities. We also use it for market analysis. We may provide information from our Web site in aggregate form, with identifying information removed, to third parties. For example, we may tell a referral partner what percentage of our registered users reside in a particular geographical area. When aggregated information is provided, we pool it from many individual records and strip it of any data that could be used to identify an individual before it is used. Any third party that receives such aggregated data must agree not to attempt to re- identify the people it belongs to.
Marketing and Advertising
We may target our marketing depending on information we have about you. We may also personalize our Web site based on your interests. For example, you may see different articles in different places on our Web site based on information you have shared with us, or information we have gained by observing your previous behavior. We use information for our own internal marketing, research, and related purposes.
In addition to aggregate information (discussed previously), some kinds of personally identifiable information may be shared with third parties as described below.
- Other Companies: We have strategic relationships with other companies who offer products and services on our Web site. When you are interacting with those companies, different rules and privacy policies may apply. For example, if you order a product from a referral partner identified through our website, you will be asked to provide identifying information and credit card information to the company that provides the product. We do not control the collection or use of information you provide under those circumstances, but we do require that those companies clearly state their policies so you can decide whether to give them any information.
- Legal Requirements: We may release account and other personal information when we believe release is required to comply with law. We may release personal information, if, in our judgment after review by an attorney, the release is compelled by law or regulation, or if the release is necessary to prevent the death or serious injury of an individual.
