Information We Collect

Personal Information may include, without limitation: your first and last name, age, your mailing address, your billing address, email address, telephone number, cell phone number, and credit card information. If you have set up an account that is password protected in order to use any feature on the Website, or for any other purpose for which a password is needed, that password is also part of your Personal Information. It may be possible to use portions of this Website without providing any Personal Information, but it may be necessary to provide Personal Information to utilize all features of this Website.

Demographic Information. 

For some activities, your mobile web browser or client software may transmit certain geographic information or information regarding your mobile device to Us. We may use that information to generate aggregate statistics about our user community and may provide that information to advertisers and other parties with whom we have a business relationship. In addition, We may use any such information for security, system integrity (the prevention of hacking, cheating and other improper or unlawful activities), or enforcement purposes.

When you visit this Website, we may, at our option, automatically collect and store the following types of non-personally identifiable information received from you: (i) information from server logs found on your browser; (ii) click-through statistics; (iii) Website traffic and behavioral usage (iv) your country; (v) the type of web browser you are using to access this Website; (vi) the type of operating system you are using; (vii) the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; (viii) the date and time you access this Website and the duration of your visit; (ix) the Internet address of the site from which you linked directly to this Website; (x) browsing history; (xi) mobile page views; and (x) the type of handset device and mobile operating system you are using (e.g. Android, iPhone, etc.).  We only use this data in aggregate form, for statistical purposes, and not in a manner that would give us sufficient information to identify you personally. Automatically collected information of that kind typically provides us with a greater understanding regarding the use of this Website, including what types of content, offers and products our visitors are interested in, where they are generally located and what are their general browsing behavioral patterns. That information also allows us to determine if this Website is working properly, make changes to the Website that allows users to have better experiences on the Website, and improve the Website, our offers and promotional content so that they are more relevant to our visitors. We collect that information and track it for statistical purposes; we do not use it to identify or to market to a particular user. 

This information may be shared with advertisers, fulfillment partners and other third parties on an aggregated basis, but it does not include the Personal Information of individual users (defined below). Your network service provider normally assigns a dynamic IP address to your every time you use your mobile browser. While we do not associate IP addresses with records containing Personal Information, we will use IP addresses to identify any user who engages in misconduct or otherwise violates any applicable laws. Additionally, we may be required to disclose IP addresses pursuant to a court order or subpoena. We may also identify and track your Internet protocol (“IP”) address. An IP address is the unique number assigned to your server or internet service provider (“ISP”). We may track those IP addresses for system administration purposes, to report aggregate information, site tracking, security purposes, or to prevent our data and servers from being damaged.
