In connection with your use of our Services, we ask for and may collect a variety of information from and about you in different ways. For example, when you register to use our Services, we ask for and store your and/or your business’ name, address, email address and other personally identifying contact data. Additional information that we may request and collect from you includes, but is not limited to, credit card information, billing details, phone, home or business mailing address. We also collect information regarding your use of the Services as you interact with our Services. For example, we may collect your browser type and IP address.

Use of Information
We use your personally identifying information to register you as a user of our Services and to provide the Services to you, including processing any transactions you execute through the Site. We may use your email address to contact you directly regarding your account as well as services or products that we believe may be of interest to you. We may also associate your personally identifying information with information we collect about your preferences and activities in connection with the Services, such as the particular pages you request at the Site and how you use our Services. We may vary the content you receive in future visits to the Site based on your preferences and activities.
We may combine your personally identifying information, and information about your preferences and activities, with those of all or a particular group of our users to prepare collective profiles of our users and their activities. For example, we may track the number of our users who view certain pages or use certain features. Such information, and other information we derive from individual users’ information, allows us to continue to grow and improve our Services. Disclosure of Information
You may choose to provide certain information about you or your organization to certain other users. When you choose to connect with other users through the Service, including as part of conversations you have with those users, such information will be disclosed to the other users.
We may disclose information to service providers who help us bring you the Services, including by hosting the infrastructure for the Service. If you pay for Services using a credit card, our credit card payment processing vendor will collect your credit card information and billing address. Where we utilize such third parties for the processing of user information, we implement reasonable contractual protections limiting the use of that information to the provision of services to us. Additionally, all User Content provided to such third parties is encrypted.
2. Access and Choice
At any time after you have registered an account for our Services, you may modify or delete your registration information or change your privacy settings by logging into your account. We will not send unsolicited messages to users of our site who indicate that they do not wish to receive such messages. If you do not wish to receive unsolicited email messages from us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use industry-standard encryption methods, such as Secured Socket Layer (SSL) protocol, to transmit your personal registration information and User Content across the Internet. Please remember that you play a valuable part in security as well. Your password to access our Services, which you select at registration, should never be shared with anyone and should be changed frequently. And, after you have finished using our Site, you should log off and exit your browser so no unauthorized persons can use our site with your name and account information. Furthermore, if you provide any information to parties who operate Web sites that are linked to or from our Site, different rules may apply to their collection, use or disclosure of your personal information. We encourage you to review these sites’ policies before revealing any sensitive or personal information. While security is important to us and we take reasonable steps to protect your information, regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, “perfect security” does not exist. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk.
