connection with your use of the Website. It also is intended to explain the conditions under which
Company uses and discloses that information, and your rights in relation to that information. Changes to

The Website is hosted in the United States of America and is subject to U.S. state and federal law. If you

those of the jurisdictions mentioned above may only use the Website in a manner lawful in their
jurisdiction. If your use of the Website would be unlawful in your jurisdiction, please do not use the
Website.
BY USING OR ACCESSING THE WEBSITE, YOU ARE ACCEPTING THE PRACTICES DESCRIBED IN
THIS PRIVACY POLICY.
GATHERING, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF NON-PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Users of the Website Generally
“Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information,
cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personally-Identifying Information,” by contrast, is
information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific
person. Like most website operators, Company gathers from users of the Website Non-Personally-
Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available.
That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type and
the locations of the websites the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after
leaving the Website. Although such information is not Personally-Identifying Information, it may be
possible for Company to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the
Privacy Policy (Rev. 133C579) 2 / 6
geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data. Company
analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website to help Company
better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Company
is able to better design the Website to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of
use. From time to time, Company may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered
from Website users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the
Website.
Web Cookies
A “Web Cookie” is a string of information which assigns you a unique identification that a website stores
on a user’s computer, and that the user’s browser provides to the website each time the user submits a
query to the website. We use cookies on the Website to keep track of services you have used, to record
registration information regarding your login name and password, to record your user preferences, to
keep you logged into the Website and to facilitate purchase procedures. Company also uses Web
Cookies to track the pages that users visit during each Website session, both to help Company improve
users’ experiences and to help Company understand how the Website is being used. As with other Non-
Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website, Company analyzes and discloses
in aggregated form information gathered using Web Cookies, so as to help Company, its partners and
others better understand how the Website is being used. COMPANY USERS WHO DO NOT WISH TO
HAVE WEB COOKIES PLACED ON THEIR COMPUTERS SHOULD SET THEIR BROWSERS TO
REFUSE WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THE WEBSITE, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT
CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE WEBSITE MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF
WEB COOKIES. WEBSITE USERS WHO REFUSE WEB COOKIES ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY
FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.
Web Beacons
A “Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a web page or email that is usually invisible to the user
and allows website operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page or an email.
Company may use Web Beacons on the Website and in emails to count users who have visited particular
pages, viewed emails and to deliver co-branded services. Web Beacons are not used to access users’
Personally-Identifying Information. They are a technique Company may use to compile aggregated
statistics about Website usage. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information, including a Web
Cookie number, time and date of a page or email view and a description of the page or email on which
the Web Beacon resides. You may not decline Web Beacons. However, they can be rendered ineffective
by declining all Web Cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a Web Cookie is
tendered, permitting you to accept or decline Web Cookies on an individual basis.
Analytics
We may partner with selected third parties to allow tracking technology on the Website, which will enable
them to collect data about how you interact with the Website and our services over time. This information
may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content
and better understand online activity.
Aggregated and Non-Personally-Identifying Information
Privacy Policy (Rev. 133C579) 3 / 6
We may share aggregated and Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect under any of the above
circumstances. We may also share it with third parties and our affiliate companies to develop and deliver
targeted advertising on the Website and on websites of third parties. We may combine Non-Personally
Identifying Information we collect with additional Non-Personally Identifying Information collected from
other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors,
advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may
tell our advertisers the number of visitors to the Website and the most popular features or services
accessed. This information does not contain any Personally-Identifying Information and may be used to
develop website content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target
content and advertising.
COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Website Registration
As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a
specific person. Company may collect a range of Personally-Identifying Information from and about
Website users. Much of the Personally-Identifying Information collected by Company about users is
information provided by users themselves when (1) registering for our service, (2) logging in with social
network credentials, (3) participating in polls, contests, surveys or other features of our service, or
responding to offers or advertisements, (4) communicating with us, (5) creating a public profile or (6)
signing up to receive newsletters. That information may include each user’s name, address, email
address and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your
payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information). We also
may request information about your interests and activities, your gender, age, date of birth, username,
hometown and other demographic or relevant information as determined by Company from time to time.
Users of the Website are under no obligation to provide Company with Personally-Identifying Information
of any kind, with the caveat that a user’s refusal to do so may prevent the user from using certain Website
features.
BY REGISTERING WITH OR USING THE WEBSITE, YOU CONSENT TO THE USE AND
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS
“COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION” SECTION.
Company Communications
We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services
offered by the Website that we think you may find valuable. We may also send you service-related
announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. Generally, you may opt
out of such emails at the time of registration or through your account settings, though we reserve the right
to send you notices about your account, such as service announcements and administrative messages,
even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
Company Disclosures
Company will disclose Personally-Identifying Information under the following circumstances:
• By Law or to Protect Rights. When we believe disclosure is appropriate, we may disclose
Personally-Identifying Information in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent or take other
Privacy Policy (Rev. 133C579) 4 / 6
action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the
rights, property or safety of Company, our users, our employees or others; to comply with
applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; to enforce our Terms of Use or other
agreements or policies, in response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order
or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or

service providers that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include fulfilling

analysis, supporting the Website’s functionality and supporting contests, sweepstakes, surveys
and other features offered through the Website. We may also share your name, contact
information and credit card information with our authorized service providers who process credit
card payments. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to
perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other
purpose.
• Business Transfers; Bankruptcy. Company reserves the right to transfer all Personally-
Identifying Information in its possession to a successor organization in the event of a merger,
acquisition, bankruptcy or other sale of all or a portion of Company’s assets. Other than to the
extent ordered by a bankruptcy or other court, the use and disclosure of all transferred
Personally-Identifying Information will be subject to this Privacy Policy, or to a new privacy policy
if you are given notice of that new privacy policy and are given an opportunity to affirmatively optout
of it. Personally-Identifying Information submitted or collected after a transfer, however, may
be subject to a new privacy policy adopted by the successor organization.
Changing Personally-Identifying Information; Account Termination
You may at any time review or change your Personally-Identifying Information by going to your account

will be deactivated or deleted as soon as practicable based on your account activity and accordance with
our deactivation policy and applicable law. To make this request, either go to your account settings (if
applicable) or contact us as provided below. We will retain in our files some Personally-Identifying
Information to prevent fraud, to troubleshoot problems, to assist with any investigations, to enforce our
Terms of Use and to comply with legal requirements as is permitted by law. Therefore, you should not
expect that all your Personally-Identifying Information will be completely removed from our databases in

and omissions. We may use financial information or payment method to process payment for any
purchases made on the Website, enroll you in the discount, rebate, and other programs in which you
elect to participate, to protect against or identify possible fraudulent transactions and otherwise as needed
to manage our business.
COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION BY THIRD PARTIES GENERALLY
Company contractually prohibits its contractors, affiliates, vendors and suppliers from disclosing
Personally-Identifying Information received from Company, other than in accordance with this Privacy
Policy. However, third parties are under no obligation to comply with this Privacy Policy with respect to
Personally-Identifying Information that users provide directly to those third parties, or that those third
parties collect for themselves. These third parties include advertisers, providers of games, utilities,
widgets and a variety of other third-party applications accessible through the Website. Company neither
owns nor controls the third-party websites and applications accessible through the Website. Thus, this
Privacy Policy does not apply to information provided to or gathered by the third parties that operate
them. Before visiting a third party, or using a third-party application, whether by means of a link on the
Website, directly through the Website or otherwise, and before providing any Personally-Identifying
Information to any such third party, users should inform themselves of the privacy policies and practices
(if any) of the third party responsible for that website or application, and should take those steps
necessary to, in those users’ discretion, protect their privacy.
SECURITY
We take the security of your Personally-Identifying Information seriously and use reasonable electronic,
personnel and physical measures to protect it from loss, theft, alteration or misuse. However, please be
advised that even the best security measures cannot fully eliminate all risks. We cannot guarantee that
only authorized persons will view your information. We are not responsible for third-party circumvention of
any privacy settings or security measures.
We are dedicated to protect all information on the Website as is necessary. However, you are responsible
for maintaining the confidentiality of your Personally-Identifying Information by keeping your password
confidential. You should change your password immediately if you believe someone has gained
unauthorized access to it or your account. If you lose control of your account, you should notify us
immediately.
PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES
Company may, in its sole discretion, change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Any and all changes to
Company’s Privacy Policy will be reflected on this page and the date new versions are posted will be
stated at the top of this Privacy Policy. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all
information that we have about you and your account. Users should regularly check this page for any
Privacy Policy (Rev. 133C579) 6 / 6
changes to this Privacy Policy. Company will always post new versions of the Privacy Policy on the
Website. However, Company may, as determined in its discretion, decide to notify users of changes
made to this Privacy Policy via email or otherwise. Accordingly, it is important that users always maintain
and update their contact information.
CHILDREN
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") protects the online privacy of children under 13
years of age. We do not knowingly collect or maintain Personally-Identifying Information from anyone
under the age of 13, unless or except as permitted by law. Any person who provides Personally-
Identifying Information through the Website represents to us that he or she is 13 years of age or older. If
we learn that Personally-Identifying Information has been collected from a user under 13 years of age on
or through the Website, then we will take the appropriate steps to cause this information to be deleted. If
you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a member of the Website or has
otherwise transferred Personally-Identifying Information to the Website, please contact Company using
our contact information below to have that child's account terminated and information deleted.
CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the "Shine The Light" law, permits our users who
are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about
the Personally-Identifying Information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in
the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of the
Personally-Identifying Information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with
which we shared Personally-Identifying Information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are
a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to our
privacy officer as listed below.
DO-NOT-TRACK POLICY
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or
setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing
activities monitored and collected. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret
the DNT signal, the Website currently does not respond to DNT browser signals or mechanisms.

Privacy Policy (Rev. 133C579)
GENERAL INSTRUCTION
WHAT IS A PRIVACY POLICY?
A Privacy Policy is a document or statement that
describes how a company gathers, uses,
manages, and releases the information of
customers or visitors to its website. By accessing
the company’s website, users accept to have to
having their information collected and disclosed
in accordance with the company’s Privacy Policy.
WHAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED?
A simple Privacy Policy will identify the following
basic elements:
• Company: The name of the company that
owns the website collecting information
from its users.
• Website: The URL address of the
company’s website that the user will be
browsing and accessing.
• User’s Information: A description of the
type of information that the website collects
and discloses.
• Collection, Use, and Disclosure: What
information the company will collect , how
they will collect and use the information,
and when and to whom they will disclose
the information.
WHEN IS IT NEEDED?
While there is no federal law in the United States
requiring that websites establish a Privacy Policy,
many states and most other countries do require
a website that collects and stores any personal
information from its users to have one.
In the United States, the Federal Trade
Commission (FTC) regulates laws and policies
regarding the privacy practices of businesses and
the protection of their customers’ personal
information. The FTC also helps to enforce
federal laws concerning the privacy of customers’
information, including the following:
• Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), which
limits how companies can obtain and use a
customer’s credit and background reports.
• Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, which requires
financial institutions to clearly explain their
  information sharing practices and also
restricts the sharing and use of specific
financial information.
• Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act (HIPAA) created a
“Privacy Rule” that establishes a national
set of standards of how health care service
providers can use an individual’s protected
health information.
• Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
(COPPA), requires websites that target
and/or collect information from children
under the age of 13 to post a Privacy Policy
that complies with the COPPA
requirements, and also implements certain
parental notice and consent requirements.
Even if your company or website is not in a
jurisdiction that requires a privacy policy, the
reach of your website may subject it to the laws
of other states and countries. For example,
California, has enacted the California Online
Privacy Protection Act of 2003 (CALOPPA) which
requires any website collecting personal
information to have a Privacy Policy posted on its
website that is easily accessible to its users.
Even if your website is not run from California,
CALOPPA applies to any website that collects
personal information from a California resident.
Therefore it is likely that your website will be
subject to the CALOPPA regulations.
The European Union has more established laws
regarding privacy protection, including the Data
Protection Directive (95/46/EC) and the E-Privacy
Directive (2002/58/EC). These directives state
that personal information of European Union
residents can only be transferred to countries
outside of the European Union that have policies
with an adequate level of protection.
Therefore, if you are a website that gathers,
stores, or uses personal information and data
from clients and users, you should have a Privacy
Policy for your website. You also need to make
sure that you adhere to the promises and
disclosures set forth in that policy.
OTHER NAMES
A Privacy Policy may also be called:
Privacy Statement, Internet Privacy Policy,
Website Privacy Policy, Privacy Notice, Privacy
