NONE of your personally identifiable information will EVER be willfully disclosed to ANY third party without your prior EXPLICIT consent. Below is more information outlining our continued support for the responsible management of consumer information.
Access to your information / your account
You have unrestricted access at any time to review, modify and remove your personally identifiable information stored by the Services. At the moment you can do so by sending a request to our privacy desk. On some systems you can access this directly, with a password. In the event that you forget your password, it will be e-mailed to the e-mail address on file.
Sharing of collected information
We will not share your personally identifiable information with any third party without your explicit consent. Some things are not for sale - your trust in us is one of them. Please be aware, however, that we will release specific personally identifiable information if required to do so in order to comply with a valid legal process. Anonymous information such as aggregate user statistics will be shared at any time with relevant parties and with the public.
Should you engage in e-Commerce transactions with us, we will make every reasonable effort to give you a good shopping experience. We will only transmit commercially sensitive information such as credit card number over secured encrypted transmission. We will not store commerciallly sensitive information on our servers for any longer than necessary to complete the transaction.
You can visit general areas of our Sites without revealing any personal information. Specific areas might require you to enter personally identifiable information (like your e-mail address). You will be made aware of the use we will make of it so that you can knowingly decide whether to provide the information or not. Some of the Services might not work without the specific information. We value and honor the privacy of personally identifiable information entrusted to us and we are committed at safeguarding and protecting the personal information you provide to us.
The servers automatically collect some types of non-personally identifiable information such as the IP addresses used to connect to our Services, or the type of device used. This information is used to understand the use of the Services and improve them. For example to identify and correct broken links, or plugin usage for multi-media display.
E-Mail and other contact information
Your e-mail or other contact information will be used only to provide you with the services you requested, with two exceptions:
If we find a significant issue with a product or service you have registered that requires immediate attention, for your protection we might contact you despite your preference not to be contacted as the situation warrants.
We may periodically ask your permission to provide you with services. We will not provide such services unless you grant us permission.
You can change your contact preferences at any time by following the instructions that are clearly posted in each mailing. If you feel that we sent you an e-mail you did not want to receive, please let our privacy desk know.
Under no circumstances will we provide your email address to any third party except as required by a valid legal process.

Cookies are an efficient technical solutions to an early problem of the web ("maintaining state"). Unfortunately, the abuse through short-sighted, careless and respectless marketers fueled aversion toward cookies in the general public.
A cookie is a small piece of information that your browser stores on behalf of a site. This information is made available to the site each time a resource from the site is requested.
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you do not want the benefit of cookies, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. There are tools to selectively accept cookies only from sites you trust. We recommend using such a tool. Please consult your web browser's documentation for more information.

Web beacons, also known as "one pixel GIFs" are a complimentary tool to cookies. A resource from a third party site is integrated in a webpage or an HTML-email so that this third party site is notified when the webpage is viewed.
We might use web beacons to tell us when a message is opened and what type of format the recipient can use (plain text or HTML). We do not use web beacons for other purposes.
