We collect two kinds of information related to you: (a) Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"); and (b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information ("Non-PII").
(a) Personally Identifiable Information: PII includes any information that identifies you as person. We collect your PII when you decide to become our member or when you agree to participate in an interactive feature of our Sites such as a review, survey or promotion. You may: (a) provide your name, mail/shipping address, email address, credit card number and phone number when registering with our Sites or in connection with a contest entry; (b) provide certain demographic information about you (e.g., age, gender, shopping interests and preferences, etc.) when participating in a survey or poll; or (c) post a general comment and/or recommendation on our Sites.
(b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We gather particular non-PII from you when you access our Sites including IP addresses and information relating to your browser, operating system, ISP, the third party website from which your visit originated and the ways you utilize our Sites such as the web pages you visit, and the duration of your visits.
PII and Non-PII is used to provide, or improve, our Sites and Services to our customers and to carry out your requests in the best way, respond to your inquiries as soon as possible, better serve you and understand your needs, or is used in other ways originally associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information.
We may disclose PII and Non-PII to:
Additionally, we use non-PII to better analyze site traffic, comprehend customer needs and trends, as well as carry out targeted promotional activities (see "Preference Based Advertising" below). We may use your non-PII by itself or total it with information we have obtained from others to make research reports and other information and data about online shopping for participating merchants and other customers, as well as media and other interested parties.
Our aim is to protect the security of your information while it is being transmitted by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We also use a secure server hosting location in the US, firewall protection, controlled access and encryption technology to protect your data. However, our customers should be advised that while we strive to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your PII. In the unfortunate event that your personally identifiable information is compromised, you will be notified by e-mail to the last e-mail address you have provided us as soon as feasible under the circumstances (delays in notification may happen while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system, as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation.)
(b) What Choices Do I Have (Opt-Out)? You have many choices regarding how we use information about you, including: (1) To stop our emails, click here; (2) To opt-out of preference-based ads, click here; (3) To stop the sharing of PII with our participating merchants, click here; and (4) as discussed above, the choices we offer you anytime you submit information through our Sites or Services.
