1. Types of Data We Collect.
We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data from you when you visit or use the Site and/or when you send us communications. “Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data, as described below.
1.1 Data You Provide to Us. We receive and store any information you enter on the Site or otherwise provide to us:
a) We collect Personal Data from you, such as your user name, first and last name, title, e-mail address, telephone number, and postal address, when you create an Account.
b) If you respond to surveys or questionnaires on our Site, we collect any Personal Data included in your answers.
c) If you contact us via e-mail, we may collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail or that you submit to us.
1.2 Data Collected Through Technology. We collect information about you based on or through your use of the Site.
a) Our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information related to your visit to the Site, such as browser type and version, operating system, platform, Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and a date/time stamp for your visit.
d) We may use clear gifs (otherwise known as web bugs or web beacons) to gather information about your visit to the Site, such as what you click on and pages and information you viewed. Additionally, be aware that advertisers and partners may also use their own clear gifs, and we do not control use of these by advertisers and partners and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are placed on a user’s hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages.
e) If you visit our Site by clicking on a link to our Site that is contained in our partner’s website, the Personal Data that you registered with that other website will be automatically transferred to our Site and will be collected by us. We may create an Account for you on our Site using the transferred Personal Data.
1.3 Information You Choose to Share with Others. We display your user name [and public profile information] (collectively, your “Public Profile”) when you post content through comments, forums, and other community features of the Site (collectively, “Public Areas”). Your Public Profile is available on the Site to other registered users. If you associate your name with your Public Profile, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your activities on our Site. If you use or post Public Content to the Public Areas or send emails or other messages to other users of our Site, you should be aware that any Personal Data you provide can be read, collected or used by other users of the Site and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the Personal Data you choose to submit in the Public Areas or send to other users.
