In some cases, it is an agent or vendor of ours that collects the information on our behalf.
Information from Third Parties
We may also receive information about you that has been collected by our service providers and business partners, including companies that assist with analytics, data processing and management, email marketing, and hosting, that we use to personalize your experience on the site.
How Your Information May Be Used

We may also use your information to track certain usage and other technical information regarding visitors of our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs.
We may also collect aggregated, de-identified, and/or anonymized data about our users and traffic (which does not identify you personally), which we may share with other parties at our discretion.
How We Share Personal Information
We may share the information we collect with other parties, including:
• Third-Party Service Providers. We have arrangements with third-party vendors, such as backend service providers, that assist us with the operation of the website, including vendors that process information on our behalf. To protect your privacy, we do not authorize our vendors to retain, use or disclose personally identifying information we collect for any purpose unrelated to the services that they provide for us or our users.
• With Your Consent. We may share information with your consent or as otherwise disclosed at the time of data collection or sharing.

You may choose to opt out of email alerts and other notifications at any time by following the instructions contained on the website and/or in the applicable communication, which will cease all such communications from us. You may also send an opt-out request directly to the following email: [email protected].
How We Protect Your Information
We maintain reasonable safeguards to protect the security, integrity, and privacy of the information that you provide to us. Security measures include password protected databases to safeguard information and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology to ensure that information is encrypted and sent across the Internet securely. All sensitive information is transmitted via SSL technology only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and those authorized are required to keep the information confidential.
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise or guarantee, and you should not expect, that your personal information or communications will always remain secure. Nor can we guarantee that the information you provide will not be intercepted by third parties while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
To help make our website more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we use a standard feature of browser software, called a “cookie,” to assign each visitor a unique, random numerical identification code that resides on their computer. The cookie does not actually identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our website.
You can reject cookies or cancel them by configuring your web browser accordingly, but please note that this may affect some of the features and functionality of the website that utilize cookies.
