Some of the personally identifiable information includes your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. The Company also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. Nonpublic personal information does not include information that is available from public sources, such as telephone directories or government records. The Company does not disclose any nonpublic personal information except as permitted by law. For example, “permitted by law” includes, without limitation: (a) with your consent; (b) as necessary to effect, administer, or enforce a transaction that you request; (c) responding to a subpoena or court order, judicial process or government regulatory authority; (d) protecting and defending the rights or property of the Company and our website; or (e) acting in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Company employees or agents, users of Company products or services, or members of the public.

The Company restricts access to your nonpublic personal information to those employees and service providers who have a business need to know that information to provide products and services to you. The Company requires our employees and independent contractors to enter into an agreement with us that prohibits them from using or disclosing nonpublic personal information other than to carry out the purposes for which we disclosed the information or as otherwise permitted by law. We maintain, and we require our service providers to agree to maintain, physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to protect your nonpublic personal information. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
