1. INTRODUCTION.

We strive to respect privacy and we recognize the need for appropriate protection and management of any Personal Information that is shared with us as part of using our Service. As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable person. You may choose whether or not to provide or disclose Personal Information in connection with your use of our Service. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you may still visit and use parts of our Service, but may be unable to access or use certain features, options, programs, products, and services. Our Service may contain links to third-party websites, products, services, and advertisements that are not owned or controlled by us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those third party websites, products, services, and advertisements, and you visit them at your own risk.

In short: we may collect Personal Information that you provide to us such as name, address, contact information, passwords and security data, and payment information.

​We may collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us when registering on our Service, expressing an interest in obtaining information about us or our products and services, or when participating in activities on our Service (such as posting in our online forums or entering competitions, contests, or giveaways), or otherwise when you contact us.

The Personal Information we collect depends on the context of your interactions with us, the choices you make and the products and features you use. The Personal Information we collect can include the following:

  • Name and Contact Data. We collect your first and last name, email address, postal address, phone number, and other similar contact data.

All payment data is stored by our third party payment processor and you should review its privacy policies and contact the payment processor directly to respond to your questions.
  • Social Media. We have worked with certain third-party social media providers to offer you their social networking services through our Service. For example, you can use third-party social networking services to share information about your experience on our Service with your friends and followers on those social networking services. These social networking services may be able to collect information about you, including your activity on our Service. These third-party social networking services also may notify your friends, both on our Service and on the social networking services themselves, that you are a user of our Service or about your use of our Service, in accordance with applicable law and their own privacy policies. If you choose to access or make use of third-party social networking services, we may receive information about you that you have made available to those social networking services, including information about your contacts on those social networking services. You also may be able to link an account from a social networking service (e.g., Facebook) to an account through our Service. This may allow you to use your credentials from the other site or service to sign in to certain features on our Services. If you link your account from a third-party site or service, we may collect information from those third-party accounts, and any information that we collect will be governed by this Privacy Policy.
  • Personal Information You Disclose Relating to Others. Our Service may allow you to disclose Personal Information relating to another person.

They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences. They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”). Most modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the options or preferences menu of your browser.
