INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT
Information Voluntarily Provided by You. When you voluntarily input information on our Website, submit a separate purchase order for the purchase of a product or service, or participate in any advertised events, we may collect a variety of information that you voluntarily provide, including your name, birth date, email address, phone number, billing information, credit card information and other information you provide. We also may collect other profile data such as your geographical location and proposed use of our products and services, and any content or other communications you provide or make in connection with your use of the Website.

Information Collected by Our Servers. We may automatically track certain basic information about our members (such as internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, click patterns, etc.). We use this information to do internal research on our members’ usage patterns, demographics, interests and general behavior to better understand and serve you and our community. This is done through the use of data collection devices such as “cookies” on certain pages of the Sites. “Cookies” are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing customized services. We may also offer certain features that are only available through the use of a “cookie.” Cookies can also help us provide information which is targeted to your interests. Most cookies are “session cookies”, meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

Examples of such services include sending e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, purchase order management services, processing payments (including credit card payments) and providing customer service.
