Information We Collect
Personal Data is any information that can be used to identify a specific individual, such as your name, email address, home address or phone number. We collect Personal Data whenever you visit the Site to, for example, register for certain services on-line; agree to participate in on-line surveys; request certain on-line information from us; participate in chat rooms, blogs or other user forums; or participate in on-line contests and promotions sponsored by us. We also may collect information when you register for wireless services via your mobile phone or other wireless devices. Because participation in these activities is completely voluntary, the user has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The type of information requested or collected by us includes user contact information (such as name and email address) and user demographic information (like gender or age).
Our Use of Your Information
We will use your Personal Data for the purposes for which it was provided. For example, if you provided Personal Data to enter a contest or sweepstakes, we will use it to register you and will use your contact information to notify contest winners and award prizes. We may also use your Personal Data to provide you with information about features, services and other offerings that may be of interest to you. Cookies and similar tools may be used to relate your use of the Site and AA Data to Personal Data obtained from you. If any AA Data is linked with Personal Data, the linked AA Data will then be treated as Personal Data.
AA Data collected through surveys will be used for purposes of reporting survey results and monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. We may also use Personal Data in aggregate form for purposes of research or analysis. In order to better understand and serve users of the Site, we often conduct research on customer demographics, interests and behavior based on Personal Data we gather. Although this aggregated data may be based in part on Personal Data, it does not identify you personally. We may share this type of AA Data with a variety of third parties, including affiliates, agents and current and prospective business partners.
We use AA Data collected from the Site for site administration, advertising and promotional purposes, and we may share such information with various third parties. For example, IP addresses are used to administer the Site and to provide AA Data to advertisers about the volume of use on the Site. We track and record IP addresses that access our site for reporting and profiling purposes only. We also gather anonymous browsing habits of our visitors to better identify content preferences. Clickstream data and demographic AA Data may be shared with our advertisers and business partners.
Disclosure of Personal Data
We reserve the right to share Personal Data with our affiliates. If you do not want us to share your Personal Data with our affiliates for their marketing purposes, you may opt-out of such sharing by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions on our behalf, such as hosting specific portions of the Site, maintaining databases, administering contests, providing wireless services and mailing information. When we hire a third party to perform these functions, that third party will only be provided with the Personal Data it needs to perform its function, and is required to afford the same level of protection to your Personal Data. We may also share Personal Data with pre-screened third parties for their marketing or promotional purposes. If you prefer that we not share your Personal Data in this way, you may opt-out of such sharing by contacting us at email@example.com. For third-party sponsored contests, sweepstakes or promotions, we may request Personal Data from you that may be shared with the sponsor.
Third Party Advertising
The ads appearing on this Web site are delivered to you by several third parties. These third parties' websites and advertisers, or the advertising companies that work on their behalf, may use technology to send (or "serve") ads directly to your browser. We may also enter into agreements with outside companies that possess technology that allows the Site to customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on the Site. This data (including clickstream data about your activities on our Site) may be shared with these companies for this purpose.
Third Party Cookies
