COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Personally identifiable information is any information that can be used to identify or locate a particular person or entity, including, but not limited to: name, address, telephone number, and email address. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you except when you specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. Such personally identifiable information may be gathered in registrations, applications, information requests, online forms (including the “Subscribe to Emails” form on the Website), online surveys, and in some instances in the process of utilizing offers from our strategic partners. We may combine information we collect from and about you online with information we collect from and about you through other means. We may also combine your information with information we learn about you from other sources, such as account update notifications.
We may use personally identifiable information for the following general purposes: responding to your requests for Services and keeping you informed of updates about your inquiry; evaluating your eligibility for Services; ending you periodic emails; and/or protecting your rights, our rights and the rights of others. Additionally, we may share your information, whether individually or in the aggregate, with our subsidiaries or affiliates for marketing or promotional purposes or to improve the Website or the Services. When you terminate your use of the Services we may retain your information for a reasonable period of time afterward for the purpose of recordkeeping, account management and fraud prevention activities.
We value opinions and comments from our visitors and we may conduct online surveys or issue invitations for such. These surveys are entirely optional for all Website visitors. Usually the information from such surveys is aggregated and used for improving our products, services and operations and those of our subsidiaries and affiliates. In other cases we will use the identifying information as a vehicle for responding to an individual question or comment.

Cookies are not programs that download onto a visitor’s system and damage files (viruses or worms) or send information to third parties about websites visited (spyware). Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the visitor that has no meaning outside the assigning website.
We may also use other standard Internet technologies, such as Flash technologies, Web beacons or pixel tags, and other similar technologies, to deliver or communicate with cookies and track your use of our Website. For example, we may include Web beacons in e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information obtained with such technology enables us to customize the services offered and measure the overall effectiveness of our online content, advertising campaigns, and the Services we offer through the Website.

We might also use third party tools or platforms, such as cloud services offered by Google, to process your personally identifiable information, in which case we would protect such information through use of passwords or other protection methods offered by such third parties. We also may share your personally identifiable information with affiliated businesses that we do not control but with which we engage in collaborative offerings, and with entities with which the Company may merge or which may acquire all or substantially all of the Company’s assets, as client information likely will be one of the transferred assets.

It may be possible for hackers or other third parties not under the control of the Company to intercept or access private communications unlawfully.
