2. INFORMATION COLLECTION PRACTICES
2.1. What Basic Information Do We Collect?
In operating the Site, we may include registration, online surveys, and other online forms that ask users to provide their names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and other contact information, and credit card information for purchases.
2.2. What Additional Information Do We Collect?
(a) Automatic Collection. Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
(b) Cookies. From time to time, we may use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allows us to store a small piece of data on your computer about your visit to our Web site. We do not set any personally identifiable information in cookies, nor do we employ any data capture mechanisms on our website other than cookies. Cookies help us learn which areas of our site are useful and which areas need improvement. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you choose to disable this function, your experience at our Web site may be diminished and some features may not work as they were intended.

We may also use your personal information to inform you of any changes to the Site, resolve disputes, collect fees and troubleshoot problems, or to send you additional information about us, our affiliated companies and products or services that may be of interest to you.

We may also disclose personal information to: (a) other third parties to whom you explicitly ask us to send your information, or about whom you are explicitly notified and consent to when using a specific service (the information we disclose in this way may be subject to those third parties’ privacy policies, over which Company has no control or responsibility); or (b) service providers under contract who help with our business operations (such as fraud investigations, bill collection, invoicing, affiliate and rewards programs and co-branded credit cards).
(e) Sale of Assets. In order to accommodate changes in our business, we may sell or buy portions of our company or other companies or assets, including the information collected through the Site. If Company or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will be one of the assets transferred to the acquirer.
