Privacy Policy


Welcome to the site. We believe in your right to know what information is collected during your visit to our site and how the information is used and safeguarded.

The information gathered by the web site falls into two categories:

  1. Information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our site through optional registration.
  2. Tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our site.

Information Gathered By Voluntary Submission
To make use of certain features on our site visitors need to register and to provide certain information as part of the registration or participation process.  When you provide us with this personal information you consent to the collection and use of this information by us, our affiliates and advertisers as described in our Terms of Service.  In particular you agree to the sending to you of newsletters and other information which may include advertising content by email, text, or otherwise at any address you have given us or any device you use to access us. If at any time you wish to withdraw your consent you agree to send an email from the address where you no longer wish to receive email from us with the word “Unsubscribe” in the Subject line to and inform us of the number of any device you wish us to refrain from contacting, all as more particularly discussed in our Terms of Service.


Information Automatically Gathered About All Visitors
We collect aggregate and user-specific information on what pages consumers’ access or visit. This information is used to generate reports that help us assess the value of and interest in the site. We use the information we collect to improve the content of our web pages. We can build a better site if we know which pages our users are visiting and how often.

Our web servers also automatically collect limited information about your device or computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address but not the e-mail address, and information about other devices when you visit our site. Your IP address and other information does not identify you personally, but logging in using Facebook and certain other services may. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our site and its advertising and other contet to the interests of our users, and to measure traffic within our site.

To help make our site more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we often utilize a standard feature of browser software, called a “cookie”. The cookie itself doesn’t actually identify the visitor, just the computer or device that a visitor uses to access our site. A cookie can’t read data off your hard drive. Our advertisers or content partners may also assign their own cookies to your browser, a process that we cannot control. We use cookies to help us tailor our site to your needs, to deliver a better, more personalized service. Moreover, we leverage 3rd party data collection services.

We may allow third parties to place cookies on our site in order to improve your online experience after you leave our site. The third party cookies used are designed to improve your online experience by facilitating the receipt of targeted advertisements while on our site and while you are viewing other websites. These third parties may use information about your visits to our site and other web sites obtained through their cookie only to provide advertisements for goods and services of interest to you. Other companies’ use of these cookies is subject to their own privacy policies and not ours.

Information Shared With Other Organizations
When we present information to our advertisers — to help them understand our audience and confirm the value of advertising on our websites — it is usually in the form of aggregated statistics on traffic to various pages within our site. From time to time, we may share information on visitors to our site with organizations marketing products and services that we believe may be of interest to you. This list can include your e-mail address and other specific information (such as your phone number or street address) you may have provided us while online, as well as data on devices used to access our site.


Special Attention To Children
Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We do not specifically collect information about children. We encourage parents to review and share safety tips with their children participating in the online experience.


A final note: is affiliated with other online companies, some of which feature our branding. This policy statement does not apply to those companies’ web sites; please refer to these affiliated sites to obtain information on their privacy policies. If you can’t find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site’s homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information.

The Web is an evolving medium. If we need to change our Privacy Policy at some point in the future, we’ll post the changes before they take effect. Of course, our use of information gathered while the current policy is in effect will always be consistent with the current policy, even if we change that policy later.
