Some of the information we may collect when you use the Services, such as your name, postal address, email address, and/or telephone number, or, if we offer products or services for sale, your credit/debit card or other payment information, may allow you to be identified. We call this type of information “Personal Information.”

We urge you not to provide any Personal Information, including any information regarding health or medical matters, or anything else that you wish to remain private, in such a context.
Surveys: We may ask you to complete surveys or opinion polls from time to time. Participation is voluntary.

Business Transfers: If we were to transfer all or substantially all of our assets to another we, one of the assets we would likely include in the transfer is our database of Personal Information.
Disclosures for Legal Reasons: We will disclose Personal Information when we are required to do so by law, regulation or securities exchange requirement, for example, in response to a court order or subpoena.
