used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages

What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a
web site, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive
specifically designated for cookies. Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's
preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it
has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies.
However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse
function as effectively when viewed by the user. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or
pass on computer viruses.

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number
that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our

addresses or personal details) with anyone except to the extent necessary to process transactions or provide
services that you have requested.

requires it, or for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have
reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against
someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the public.

help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most
attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again,

We will use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our
business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user
information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court
order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection
of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary.
Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
