Collection of Information
Upon registering with us you will be asked to provide certain personal information that may be stored as part of your registration data. The registration data contains various personal information which may include, but not be limited to, the following: e-mail address, first and last name, country or region, state or territory, city, zip code or postal code, street address, time zone, gender, language, birth date and age, and occupation. In addition to the above information, we may also collect and store the IP address of your computer or other networking device, which may be needed to operate various features and functionality of our services. We may also collect data pertaining to your online transactions, and purchase history. Further, when you register with us you may be asked to create a password for your account. We take the privacy of your information very seriously. That is why we use security questions to help verify that you’re the only person who can access or make changes to your account. If you forget your password, use these questions to verify your identity, then reset your password. We do not store your credit card information, which you may be asked to provide when making a purchase.
Use of Your Personal Information
Any personal information is used for the operation and maintenance of your account. For example, we may use your e-mail address to send you a welcome message when you first register, informing you of the service and telling you how to manage your account. You may be required to respond to this e-mail to validate that you are the owner of the email address associated with the account. Failure to respond to the email and verify the address within the timeframe stated will cause the account to become inactive. This process is designed to verify the validity of the email address and to help prevent email addresses from being used without permission in the creation of your account.
Accordingly, we may analyze data pertaining to your online transactions, purchase history, and online site searches and usage patterns so that we can make recommendations tailored especially to you. We may contact you about periodic service updates, recommended security updates, or surveys related to our services. These periodic e-mails are considered essential to the provision of the service you have requested.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf or to fulfill a service or transaction you may have requested, such as answering customer support inquiries, fulfilling merchandise orders, credit card payment processing, selling concert tickets, etc. We will only provide these companies with those pieces of your personal information needed to deliver the services. We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law necessary to: (a) conform legal requirements or comply with legal process served onto us (b) protect and defend the rights or property of our company or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our services.
Managing Your Personal Information
You can update or make changes to the registration information stored in relation to your account. This is accessible by signing in to the site in which you are registered. You may close your account by contacting our Customer Support Team.
You Sharing Your Information
If you choose various features which may be available as part of our services allowing you to voluntarily share information, whether to a group of other users designated by you (for example, a “buddy list” or “friends” who also have a registered account) or to everyone (for example, when you post user generated content to a publicly accessible area on a website). You are cautioned not to post your personal information in the interest of safety, privacy and security. You should not post your address, telephone number, or anything that might put you at risk. We are not responsible for monitoring this information, and we are not liable for any consequences that may result from the exchange of this information.
Security and Storage of Your Personal Information
We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access and located in controlled facilities. You must type the correct password to access your information. It is your responsibility to ensure the security of your account password and not to reveal this information to others.
Personal information collected may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which we or our affiliates, subsidiaries, or agents maintain facilities. By using our service, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
Some “operational” information is used to manage your account properly. This operational information does not include the personal information that you provide as part of your registration data, but may include, for example, the following: the date on which your registration data was last updated, whether your e-mail address has been verified, whether your account has been deactivated, what browser you are using, the IP address of your computer or other networking device, and other similar types of information. Operational information may be shared with third parties to the extent necessary to provide our services.
We may collect and analyze information about your use of our services as aggregated by other users. This is “Aggregate Information.” Examples include: overall usage patterns of other users, the total number of users, the percentage of users whom are female, or in a certain age range, or who live in a particular region, etc., or the percentage of users who are also consumers of various other products and services. The collection and analysis of Aggregate Information is important in the operation and enhancement of our services and business purposes. Aggregate Information may be compiled in reports and disclosed, sold, licensed or rented to third parties. However, since Aggregate Information does not include any information that can be used to individually identify you or any other users, it is not possible for the third-party recipient of the Aggregate Information to use it to identify or contact you.
