Broadly speaking, we collect information in three ways:
(1) when you provide it directly to us, (2) when we obtain
information about your from third parties or our indexing systems
(3) passively through technology such as "cookies".
The types of information that we collect and our use of that information
will depend on what kind of user you are as described below.
The term "Personal Information", as used in this Policy,
refers to any information that can be used to identify a specific person,
or any anonymous information (e.g., IP Address) that is linked to a specific person.
Personal Information does not include information that has been made anonymous
such that it can no longer be reasonably associated with a specific person.
For example, to create a profile, register for a promotion, make a purchase
or publish a comment, the Personal Information we collect may include,
but is not limited to: Full name, Email address, Password, Street address,
Telephone number(s), Birth date, Payment card information, Location data,
and Contacts (as stored in your wireless device).
