If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option of canceling your account. We may broadcast or otherwise distribute important messages to all users or send individual messages to specific users where we have appropriate contact information to do so. We also may send information to you by email about our services, including special alerts, offers, awards, surveys, contests, promotions and updates. You will be given the option not to receive these types of communications.
Surveys and Contests. We may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys from time to time. Participation in contests or surveys is completely voluntary.

How does Company collect and use technical information?
Clear gifs (Web beacons). We may use a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to personally identifiable information you submit while you are on the system. We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
Log Data. Our servers may automatically record information (“Log Data”) created by your use of the Service. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with our website, applications and advertisements, may also be included in Log Data.
Personalization of Experience. We may personalize your experience by using your site behavior to shape any recommendations we may make about merchandise or content (including advertising) that might be of interest to you. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and Site and application and advertisement usage to help us develop the design and layout of the Site.
Updating Your Personal Information
If you are a registered user of the Service, you can access and modify the personal information you provided to us through the Website.
How Company Secures Your Personal Information
Company user accounts are protected by user-created passwords. We use reasonable measures to protect user information that is stored within our systems, and we restrict access to user information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel, service administrators, and technical staff.
Our physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards meet or exceed current U.S. federal standards regarding the protection of customer information. We also require contractors and outside companies who work with us to adhere to strict privacy standards through their contracts with us. Unfortunately, no security system, transmission of data over the Internet or mobile devices, or even physical transfer of information, can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Consequently, while we use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and our servers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the website. Any information that you provide to us is done so entirely at your own risk. We do not ensure or warrant the security of any data or information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
If Company learns of a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may post a notice on our website if a security breach occurs. We also may notify you through the email address associated with your account. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice), you should notify us at email@example.com.
The Service is not directed to people under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 18. If we become aware that someone under 18 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove that information and terminate that person’s account. In addition, if you learn that your child who is under the age of 18 has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
