1. Types
of Information Collected

Personal Data:
Personally Identifiable Information ("Personal Data") is
any information that can be used to identify a specific individual,
such as your name, email address, home address, phone number and
credit card information. This Site collects Personal Data when you
interact with the Site for example when you subscribe for
newsletters; register for membership services such as chat rooms or
message boards; participate in chat rooms, blogs or other user
forums; respond to polls or surveys; purchase merchandise via the
Site; register for sweepstakes, contests and other promotional
opportunities; or seek help from our customer service departments. We
also may collect information when you purchase products or services
offline, or register for wireless services via your cell phone or
other wireless devices ("Other Services"). Because
providing detailed information regarding our privacy policy when you
register or provide information in connection with these Other
Services often proves impractical, you may instead be provided with a
short notice that reminds you to refer to this Privacy Policy and
other relevant information from us. We may also obtain Personal Data
from reputable third parties, such as credit agencies.

Aggregate and
Anonymous Data: Aggregate and anonymous data is information that does
not identify you specifically including data collected automatically
through the operation of the Site ("AA Data"). We may
collect site usage data (such as which Site pages you visit and in
what sequence) through the use of various technologies. For example,
we collect IP addresses from individuals who visit the Site. An IP
address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer
whenever you’re 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 a website, its
servers log your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to any
Personal Data, so although your session will be logged, you will
remain anonymous to us and the Site. We may also collect password
information from you when you log in, as well as computer and
connection information such as browser type or version. During some
visits, we may use software tools, such as Javascript, to measure and
collect session information, including page response times, download
errors, time spent on certain pages, page interaction information,
and methods used to browse away from the page.

2. Use
of Cookies and Similar Technologies

Like many sites,
we use "cookies" or other similar technologies to collect
AA Data. A cookie is a small data file that writes to your hard drive
for record keeping purposes when you visit the Site. Cookies allow
the Site to measure traffic activity on the Site and to improve your
user experience, for example by remembering your passwords and
viewing preferences, allowing you to visit "member only"
portions of the Site without re-registering, and tracking the
progress and number of entries in activities that require
registration or entry, such as sweepstakes. Similarly, if you have
asked us to send you information about upcoming products and
promotions, using cookies we may collect information about which Site
pages you have visited and in what order ("Clickstream Data")
that may allow us to narrow or limit the materials provided to you
based on your prior online activities or preferences. Most browsers
are initially set to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can set your
browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being
sent, but it is possible that some parts of the Site will not
function properly if you do so.

In order to
determine a user’s ability to receive HTML email in addition to
whether or not an email has been opened, we may include a “web
beacon” in a majority of the HTML email messages we send. A web
beacon (actually a small .gif image) is activated when an HTML email
is opened via a request for the image on our servers.

This capability
helps us send email in a format users can read and enables Company to
track the aggregate number of emails opened. The web beacon does not
collect any personally identifiable information. Users that do not
want to receive email messages with web beacons can choose to receive
their emails in text (non-HTML) format.

We may use the
capability to track when a URL has been clicked inside of an email
message sent by our system. We may use this functionality to track
which links were clicked and in what quantity, as well as the
aggregate number of links clicked. In addition, Company reserves the
right to use an aggregate view of this click stream data. Company
does not use a click tracking functionality to collect any personally
identifiable information for any other purposes.

3. Our
Use of Your Data

Personal Data:
We will use your Personal Data for the purposes for which it was
provided. For example, if you provide Personal Data to register for a
newsletter or a text messaging service, to enter a contest or a
sweepstake, or to purchase goods or services, we will use it to
register you for or provide you with those goods or services. We may
also use your Personal Data to provide you with information about
features, services and other offerings that may be of interest to
you. We also may send information or offers to selected groups of
Site users on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not
give those businesses your name or address. Under certain
circumstances (for example if you win a contest) we may post your
Personal Data on the Site. We will notify you of this possibility
when you provide the Personal Data and, if possible, when the
Personal Data is posted.

Cookies and
similar tools may be used to relate your use of the Site and AA Data
to Personal Data obtained from you. If any AA Data is linked with
Personal Data, the linked AA Data will then be treated as Personal

At times we will
use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to
administer our web site. We also may track browser types to help us
understand our visitors’ needs related to our web site design.

There is an
optional section of our web site where input forms require your name,
phone number, company, and e-mail address. This form provides the
ability to opt-in to receiving future emails of any sort from
Company. If you opt-in to receiving email communications from us,
then we may send information to you on our products or services.

This information
will not be used for any other purpose. We do, however, reserve the
right to disclose your personally identifiable information as
required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to
protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court
order, or legal process served on our Web site.

AA Data: We may
also use Personal Data in aggregate form for purposes of research or
analysis. In order to better understand and serve the users of the
Site and Other Services, Company often conducts research on its
customer demographics, interests and behavior based on Personal Data
we gather. Although this aggregated data may be based in part on
Personal Data, it does not identify you personally. Company may share
this type of AA Data with a variety of third parties, including its
affiliates, agents, and current and prospective business partners.

We may use AA
Data collected from the Site for site administration, advertising and
promotional purposes, and we may share such information with various
affiliated and unaffiliated entities for such purposes. For example,
IP addresses are used for the purposes of system administration and
to provide AA Data to advertisers about the volume of use on the
Site, and Clickstream Data and demographic AA Data may be shared with
our advertisers and business partners. We may also enter into
agreements with outside companies that possess technology that allows
the Site to customize the advertising and marketing messages you
receive on the Site. This data (including Clickstream Data about your
activities on our Site) may be shared with these companies for this
purpose. We may also use AA Data to help manage or service data for
third parties. AA Data will not be shared with such third parties but
may be used for such services as confirmation of stop lists and go
lists, for validation services, and suppression services.

4. Disclosure
of Personal Data: Disclosure to Agents and Third Parties
Company, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to
perform certain business-related functions on our behalf such as
hosting specific portions of the Site, maintaining databases,
administering contests, providing wireless services, mailing
information and processing payments. When we employ a third party to
perform these functions, that third party will only be provided with
the particular Personal Data it needs to perform its function, and is
required to protect the Personal Data. For third-party sponsored
sweepstakes, contests or promotions, we may request Personal Data
from you that may be shared with the sponsor upon request.

Disclosure to
Others: In addition, we may disclose Personal Data without providing
you with a choice under the following limited circumstances to: (1)
protect the legal rights, privacy or safety of Company or its
subsidiaries, affiliates or its or their employees, agents and
contractors; (2) protect the safety and security of visitors to our
web sites or other properties; (3) protect against fraud or other
illegal activity or for risk management purposes; (4) respond to
inquiries or requests from public authorities; (5) permit us to
pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain;
(6) enforce our Terms of Service; or (7) comply with the law or legal

If Company sells
all or part of this Site or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is
otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, we may, in our
sole discretion, transfer, sell or assign your Personal Data to a
third party as part of or in connection with that transaction. Upon
such transfer, the Privacy Policy of the acquiring entity may govern
the further use of your Personal Data.

5. Third-Party
Advertising, Participating Vendors and Links to Other Sites

This Site may
include third-party advertising. These third parties’ websites
and advertisers, or the Internet advertising companies that work on
their behalf, may use technology to send (or "serve") the
advertisements that appear on our Site directly to your browser. They
automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may
also use cookies, Javascript, Pixel Tags and other technologies to
deliver advertisements, collect information about the effectiveness
of their advertisements, and to collect anonymous information about
your visits to the Site, such as the number of times you have viewed
an ad (but not your name, address, or other Personal Data).

Please note that
this Site contains links to other sites that will not follow the same
Privacy Policy as our Site. For instance, clicking on an
advertisement or on links or other elements on the Site may take you

logo or style as a result of a co-branding agreement. These sites may
send their own cookies to you and may collect data and make use of
that data in ways that this Site would not. Once you’ve left this
Site, this Privacy Policy will no longer apply to Personal Data or
