2. Data Collection
In the course of operating the Site Services, we may collect two types of data about our users: Personal Data and Non-Personal Data.
"Personal Data" is personally identifiable data, such as your name, address, email address, birth date, gender, nationality, and profession or education level. Personal Data is collected by us when you choose to provide it to us when registering for a Site Service, such as when you choose to subscribe to a Site Service, enter a Site promotion or choose to receive a Site newsletter. In addition, if you choose to contact any of our customer service representatives, we may keep a record of that correspondence or we may register a phone call so that we may fully address the subject matter. We may also receive Personal Data from our business partners and other third parties, provided that such third parties are permitted them to share such information.
Business contact data such as the name, title, business address, email address or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization are not considered Personal Data.
"Non-Personal Data" is data of an anonymous nature, such as an Internet Protocol Address (IP Address), the domain you may have used to access a Site Service, the type and version of browser or operating system you may be using, and the website you may have come from and visit next. Aggregate data, such as demographic statistics of our users (e.g. average age or geographical allocation of our users), number of visitors and average time spent on a Site Service, is also considered Non-Personal Data. Non-Personal Data is collected or derived by us in the course of operating the Site Services, even if the user account will be canceled. For example, our Web servers may automatically collect Non-Personal Data, which is provided through your browser or stored, on a Cookie or through a Web Beacon when you choose to visit a Site Service. Non-Personal Data is used by Site as described here. When a User Account is canceled, your personal data such as name, address, phone and email addresses are erased, however the rest of all your personal and non-personal data will continue to be stored in order to be used in our “Statistics” application.
3. Use of Personal Data
Personal Data may be used by us for the following purposes:
- Providing you with the Site Services and information, you have requested from us, including your use of the Site. We may from time to time use your Personal Data to contact you about changes, enhancements or similar notices related to Site Services;
- Providing you with offers or information from our Site or certain of our selected sponsors or advertisers. The Site may send you email materials and other mailings about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. If at any time you would like to end your subscription to any such email materials, follow the directions posted at the bottom of the email material;

- The Site stores any personal and non-personal data entered by the Users. All Users hereby give their explicit consent to the Site Administrators to store and process such personal and non-personal data. The Site stores and processes such personal and non-personal data for its purposes and services, including but not limiting, for the “Statistics” application and for applying selection filters. Users hereby expressly acknowledge and grant the Site the right to maintain and process all or part of their personal data for the purposes mentioned above, even after the User Account has been deleted.

6. Encryption and Security Protocols
In certain areas, such as when you provide credit card information to us, we work to help protect the security of your credit card information during transmission by using industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology.
You can help protect the security of your Personal Data as well. For instance, never give out your password, since this is what is used to access your Account or Registration Information. Also remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you finish using a Site Service or surfing the Web, so that other people using the same computer won't have access to your data.
7. User Account and Registration Information
The Site provides you with the means to access, update, edit or delete any User Account or Registration Information you may have provided to us at any time on your own by going to the appropriate page in the User Account or Registration section of the relevant Site Service, and changing or deleting such information as desired.
If you are unsure, whether we keep a record containing any of your Personal Data (name, address, email or phone), please Contact Us, indicating all e-mail addresses that you may have given us.
If you decide at any time that you do not want to receive any e-mail materials to which you have subscribed, you may choose to unsubscribe to these e-mails by following the instructions at the bottom of the e-mail material.
