We take privacy very seriously and we will not sell your personal information to anyone. We may disclose your information in limited situations to service providers to help us provide the Services to you, but these service providers will always be required to safeguard and protect your information. Please see the section titled “Disclosure of Your Information” for additional information on our disclosure practices.
Our Services are intended for users who are 21 years of age and older. If you are under the age of 21, you are not permitted to submit any Personal Information to us and are strictly prohibited from using the Services. If you believe we might have any information from or about someone under 21, please contact us at email@example.com.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION
Soundbite: When you use our Services, we will collect certain information about you. This information includes information that can be used to identify you publicly (like your email address) and information that cannot be used to identify you publicly (like how many pages you viewed on our Site). We collect your information when you voluntarily provide it to us and through automatic tracking technologies, which we explain in greater detail below.
The information we collect from you falls into two categories: personally identifiable information (” Personal Information“) and non-personally identifiable information (i.e., information that cannot be used to identify who you are) (” Non-Personal Information“). Below are the various ways in which we may collect Personal Information and Non-Personal information from you.
Information We Automatically Collect. Like most websites, our Services may incorporate technology such as “pixel tags”, “web beacons”, and “cookies” that allow us to track the actions of users of our Services automatically. Pixel tags or web beacons are tracking devices on websites or in emails that can monitor the behavior of the user visiting the website or opening the e-mail, and cookies are small files that web servers may place on your computer when you visit a website. These automatic tracking tools allow us to collect Non-Personal Information, such as browser information, information about when you access the Services, details of how you used our Services, such as what pages you viewed and for how long, the website address that linked you to our Site, the website that you visit after using our Services, and details of how you viewed our emails.
Information You Voluntarily Provide to Us. If you sign up for our newsletter on our Site or contact us directly by email, social media, or by some other means, we may keep a record of your contact information (including your name, email address, age and city) and the correspondence for later reference. We may also keep a record of any forms, surveys or questionnaires that you voluntarily fill out on our Site or through your use of the Services.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
Soundbite: We will use your information to improve our Services and to send you promotional emails. We may also combine your information with other people’s information to create reports that may be disclosed publicly, but in these cases, you will not be publicly identified in any way.
We may use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including Personal Information, to measure usage of the Services, to analyze the effectiveness of our Services, to improve and enhance functionality of the Services, to customize the Services for you, to develop new products and services, to provide support for the Services and respond to requests and inquiries, to provide you with notices, such as updates or changes that we may make to the Services, and to market and advertise the Services through promotional e-mail messages.
We may from time to time aggregate some of your Personal Information in certain data analysis, reports, or other interpretations of trends for both internal and external purposes. When aggregating Personal Information, we make sure that the information is not identifiable to any particular user in any way.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
Soundbite: We will protect your information and not disclose it to any third party unless we have your express written consent or if we are required to do so in certain limited situations, as further explained below.
In addition to the disclosures for the purposes above, we may disclose your Personal Information and Non-Personal Information to a buyer or other successor as part of a merger, acquisition, change of control or other similar business transfer, to government body or other third party if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a legal obligation, or in specific other cases with your consent.
We may disclose aggregated user statistics and other data with our affiliates, agents and current or prospective business partners. This aggregate information does not personally identify you.

Soundbite: You can choose how we use and store your information by following the steps outlined below.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding our collection, use and disclosure of the information you provide to us. The mechanisms listed below provide you with control over such collection, use and disclosure:
