- Registration Information. You will provide us with certain information about yourself, your firm or company, and your practices when you register to be a member of the Service, register for certain services, or register for email newsletters and alerts.
- Email Information. If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.
- Technical Service Information. Similar to other commercial websites, we utilize a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and server logs to collect information about how the Service is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent on the Service, and the websites visited just before and just after visiting or using the Service. We, our advertisers, and ad serving companies may also use small technology or pieces of code to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.
- How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us? Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering and expanding our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to the Service, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. From time to time we will allow our Sponsors or marketing partners to offer Service users an opportunity to “opt-in” to receive marketing information directly from that Sponsor or marketing partner. In such cases, on the registration page, an “opt-in” question will appear clearly explaining that by checking the box you agree to share your personally identifiable information with that particular Sponsor or marketing partner. If there is not a Sponsor ”opt-in” question on a registration form, we will not give any of the data collected to any Sponsor or partner.

We may disclose your personal information if required: (a) by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to comply with the law or legal process served on us or affiliated parties; (b) protect and defend our rights and property, our Service and its users, and/or our affiliated parties; (c) act under circumstances to protect the safety of users of our Service, us, or third parties.
- Referral Service. If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend (e.g., email a friend, refer a friend, send to a friend, email a page, invite a friend, etc.) about the Service, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Service. We store this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at email@example.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions.

Information collected by any such Widget is governed by the privacy notice of the company that created it (and we take no responsibility for their actions).

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
