This Policy describes the type of information Operator and its Affiliates, Business Partners and Service Providers collect from visitors to the Site, what we do with that information, and how visitors can update and control the use of information provided on the Site. This Policy applies solely to our online data collection from this site; it does not describe information collection policies for other data we collect, including data collected on other sites, such as separate sites operated by our Business Partners that we do not control.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT? HOW DO WE USE IT?
You can visit us on the World Wide Web without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself, including your e-mail address. In this case, our Web servers collect the name of the domain you used to access the Internet (such as aol.com), which pages on our Site are visited (and when they are visited), Internet browser type and platform, the link that brought you to our Site, and any links clicked within our Site. This information is used by us and our business partners to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about visitors to our Website in general. We also use this data to monitor site performance and to make the site easier and more convenient to use. None of this information can be used by us to identify you.
There are times when we may ask you for information about yourself to assist us in meeting your various needs, including:
you with products or services you have requested
· Servicing your account
· Improving our services
· Developing and/or informing you of additional products or services that may be of interest
In these cases, your browsing will no longer be anonymous to us. To provide these services, we may need to ask you directly to provide, among other things, your name, social security number, physical address, zip code, e-mail address, phone number and certain financial information. Also, you may elect to apply online for one of our products or services, which may require us to gather additional information to determine your eligibility for such products or services.
Please note that we do not knowingly solicit information from children under 18 years of age and we do not knowingly market our products or services to such children. As a result, children under 18 years of age should not use this Site.

When you first provide us with your e-mail address, you will be given the option of not receiving any such e-mail or other marketing contacts if you choose. We will also include instructions in our e-mail messages on how to unsubscribe if you later decide you do not want to receive any future e-mails or other marketing contacts from us or other third parties.

site. E-mails you send us are not necessarily secure when they are transmitted
to us. If your communication is very sensitive or includes highly confidential
information such as a social security number or a credit card number, you may
want to send it by regular mail instead.
