Information We Collect About You
We collect several types of information about visitors to this Website and/or Users of our services. We may collect this information either directly when You provide it to us or automatically as You navigate through the Website. (a) Personally Identifiable Information. ‘Personally Identifiable Information’ refers to information by which You may be personally identified, such as Your name or email address. We will collect and process such data about You when You register for a service/create an account, subscribe to a newsletter, submit feedback, fill out a survey, or send us a communication. When ordering products or services on the Website, You may also be asked to provide a credit card number and other payment-related information. You may also provide information to be published or displayed ("posted") on public areas of the Website (such as blogs, forums, message boards, and the like), or transmitted to other Users of the Website using ‘sharing’ features (collectively, "User Contributions"). Your User Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at Your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other Users of the Website with whom You may choose to share Your User Contributions. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask You to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If You do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, You will not be able to engage in that activity. We will never require data that is not reasonably necessary. (b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We may collect, or our third party ad server and/or content server may collect, certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information, that does not by itself identify a specific individual. Such information tells us about Your equipment, browsing actions, the resources that You Access and use on the Website, Your Internet Protocol (‘IP’) address, operating system and browser type. We use Your IP address to administer this Website and to gather demographic information. Our third party ad servers will provide us with summary, but not individual, reports that will tell us how many ads were presented and clicked upon at our Website. The information that we collect automatically is ‘statistical’ in nature. It helps us to deliver a better and more personalized service to Users, by enabling us to estimate usage patterns, customize our Website according to Your individual preferences, and speed up Your searches.

We provide some of our services through contractual arrangements with services providers and other third parties. We and our service partners use Your Personally Identifiable Information to operate our Websites and to deliver services.
