Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to modify your browser setting to block cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer 11, you can block cookies by taking the following steps:
1. Click "Tools" and then select "Internet Options."
2. Click the "Privacy" tab at the top of the window.
3. Move the slider up or down to indicate the rules you want to apply for blocking cookies.
Instructions for blocking cookies in other browsers are available at each browser's privacy statement.
Please be aware that if you choose to block cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of our Site that depend on cookies, and any advertising preferences that are dependent on cookies may be lost.
If you accept cookies you can delete them later. For example, in Internet Explorer 11, you can delete cookies by taking the following steps:
1. Click "Tools" and then select "Internet Options."
2. On the "General" tab, under "Browsing History," click the "Delete" button.
3. On the pop-up, select the box next to "Cookies."
4. Click the "Delete" button.
Instructions for deleting cookies in other browsers are available at each browser's privacy statement.
Please be aware that if you choose to delete cookies, any settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, will be deleted and will need to be recreated.
Some newer browsers have incorporated "Do Not Track " features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the websites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. Those sites (or the third-party content on those sites) may continue to engage in activities you might view as tracking even though you have expressed this preference, depending on the sites' privacy practices. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the "Do Not Track" (DNT) signal, we do not currently respond to browser DNT signals on our Site, or on third-party websites or online services where we provide advertisements, content or are otherwise able to collect information. We continuously monitor the online industry's ongoing efforts to define a common understanding of how to treat DNT signals. In the meantime, users may continue to opt out of targeted ads from us as set forth below.
Internet Explorer (versions 9 and up) have a feature called Tracking Protection that helps prevent the websites you go to from automatically sending details about your visit to third-party content providers. When you add a Tracking Protection List, Internet Explorer will block third-party content, including cookies, from any site that is listed as a site to be blocked. By limiting calls to these sites, Internet Explorer will limit the information these third-party sites can collect about you.

In Europe, you can also visit Your Online Choices: http://www.your onlinechoices.com
Individual advertising companies may also offer their own opt-out capabilities plus more advanced advertising choices. Please note that opting out does not mean that you will stop receiving ads or see fewer ads; however, if you do opt out, the ads that you receive will no longer be behaviorally targeted. In addition, opting out does not stop information from going to our servers, but it does stop our creation or updating of profiles that might be used for behavioral advertising.

In addition to the cookies we may set when you visit our Site, third parties may also set cookies when you visit our Site. In some cases, that is because we have hired the third party to provide services on our behalf, such as site analytics. In other cases, it is because our web pages contain content or ads from third parties, such as videos, news content or ads delivered by ad networks. Because your browser connects to those third parties’ web servers to retrieve that content, those third parties are able to set or read their own cookies on your device and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services.
Our web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that may be used to help deliver cookies on our Site, count users who have visited our Site or Services and deliver co-branded services. Sometimes we include web beacons in our promotional email messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
We may sometimes work with other companies that advertise on our Site to place web beacons on their sites or in their advertisements to let us develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on our Site results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser's site.
Finally, our Site may contain web beacons from third parties to help us compile aggregated statistics regarding the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or other web site operations. These web beacons may allow the third parties to set or read a cookie on your computer. These companies may collect information about your online activities across websites or online servers, however, we prohibit third parties from using web beacons on our Site to collect or access Personally Identifiable Information. You may be able to opt out from data collection or use by these third-party analytics companies as described under “Third-Party Analytics Controls” above.
We collect many kinds of information in order to operate effectively and provide you the best products, services and experiences on our Site that we can. Some of this information you provide directly to us. Some of it we get by observing how you interact with our Services. Some of it is available from other sources that we may combine with the data we collect directly. Regardless of the source, we believe it's important to treat that information with care and to help you maintain your privacy.
What we collect:
Registration - When you sign up to use our Site or Services you may be required to provide information about yourself, such as your name, birthdate and postal code.
Signing in - To access some of our Services, you will need to sign in with an email address and password, which we refer to as your personal account. If you access our Site or Services via a mobile phone, you may also use your telephone number and a PIN as an alternative credential to your username and password.
Using our Sites and Services - We collect information that tells us how you interact with our Site and Services, including the browser you're using, your IP address which identifies the computer or service provider that you use to access our Site, location, cookies or other unique IDs, the pages you visit and features you use.
Data from other sources - We may get additional information about you, such as demographic data we purchase from other companies.
When you are asked to provide personal information, you may decline. But if you choose not to provide the information, you may not be able to use some features or Services of the Site.
How we collect:
We use a number of methods and technologies to gather information about how you use our Sites and Services, such as:
Web forms, such as when you type information into a registration form or type a search query into a search box.
Technologies like cookies and web beacons (Please visit Cookies & Similar Technologies to learn more about these technologies).
Web logging, which enables us to collect the standard information your browser sends to every website you visit - such as your IP address, browser type and language, and the site you came from - as well as the pages you visit and the links you click while using our Sites and Services.
We use the information we collect to operate, improve and personalize the products and services we offer you on our Site. We may also supplement this with information from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies to help us derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain Services to your geographic area.
We also may use the information to communicate with you, for example, informing you when a particular subscription or event of interest to you is ending, or letting you know when you need to take action to keep your personal account active.
Our Site is free of charge because to some degree it is supported by advertising. In order to make our Site widely available, the information we collect may be used to help improve the advertisements you see by making them more relevant to you.
We will share your personal information with your consent. For example, we share your content with third parties when you tell us to do so, such as when you send an email to a friend or link your personal account with another service.
We may share or disclose personal information with certain of our controlled subsidiaries and affiliates, and with vendors or agents working on our behalf. For example, companies we've hired to provide customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal information in order to provide those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy requirements and are not allowed to use the information for any other purpose. We may also disclose personal information as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
Finally, we may access, disclose and preserve your personal information, including your private content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to:
1. comply with applicable law or respond to valid legal process from competent authorities, including from law enforcement or other government agencies;
2. protect our customers, for example to prevent spam or attempts to defraud users of the services, or to help prevent the loss of life or serious injury of anyone;
3. operate and maintain the security of our services, including to prevent or stop an attack on our computer systems or networks; or
4. protect our rights or property, including enforcing the terms governing the use of the services.
Please note that our Site may include links to sites or services of third parties that have privacy practices different from ours. If you submit personal information to any of those sites or services, your information is governed by the privacy statements of those third parties.
VI. Accessing Your Personal Information
Our Site gives you the ability to view or edit your personal information online. To help prevent others from viewing your personal information, you first will be required to sign in to your personal account. Once you are signed into your personal account, you can access and update your profile on our Site from the My Account option in the header of the site.
When our Site collects age information, it will either block users under 18 or will ask them to provide consent from a parent or guardian before they can use it. We will not knowingly ask a minor under 18 to provide more information than is necessary to provide our Services.
When consent is granted, the minor's account is treated much like any other account.
Parents can change or revoke the consent choices previously made, and review, edit or request the deletion of their minor's personal information.
To some degree, our Site and Services are supported by advertising.
When we display online advertisements to you, we will place one or more [cookies –hyperlink back to Cookies & Similar Technology] on your computer in order to recognize your computer each time we display an ad to you. By serving advertisements on our Site, we are able to compile information over time about the types of pages, content and ads you, or others who are using your computer, visited or viewed. This information helps us select the ads we show you. For example, it helps us try to ensure that you do not see the same advertisements repeatedly. It also helps us select and display targeted advertisements that we believe may be of interest to you.
We may also allow third-party ad companies, including ad networks, to display advertisements on our Site. In some cases, these third parties may also place cookies on your computer, and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services. These companies may offer you a way to opt out of ad targeting based on their cookies. You may find more information by visiting the websites of any ad networks that we may allow to display advertisements on our Site. Many ad networks are also members of the Network Advertising Initiative or the Digital Advertising Alliance, which each provide a simple way to opt out of ad targeting from participating companies.
You should also be aware that some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” (DNT) features that, when turned on, send a signal in the browser header to websites and online services indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. It is up to the website or online service you visit (and any third parties providing advertising, content, or other functionality on the website or online service) to decide how it will interpret and treat the signal. However, there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal. As a result, we do not currently respond to the browser DNT signals on our Site or Services, or on third- party websites or online services where we provide advertisements, content or are otherwise able to collect information. We continuously monitor the online industry's ongoing efforts to define a common understanding of how to treat DNT signals. In the meantime, users may continue to opt out of targeted ads from us as set forth in “Advertising Opt-Out Controls.”
If you receive promotional email messages from us and would like to stop getting them in the future, you can do so by following the directions in that message. This choice however does not apply to the display of online advertising: please refer to the section "Display of Advertising" for information on this matter.
When you use a location based service or feature, available cell tower data, Wi-Fi data and Global Position System (GPS) data may be sent to us. We use location information to provide the services you requests, personalize your experience and improve our Services.
Certain Services may allow you to control when location information is sent to us or made available to others. In some cases, location information is essential to the Service and may require discontinuing the Service to stop the sending of location information.
Support may be provided through phone, email, or online chat. Phone conversations or online chat sessions with support professionals may be recorded and/or monitored. For Online Chat, you may end a session at any time of your choosing. Following a support incident, we may send you a survey about your experience and may send you offerings.
Payment Data is the information that you provide when you make online purchases. This may include your payment instrument number (e.g., credit card, PayPal), your name and billing address, and the security code associated with your payment instrument (e.g., the CSV or CVV). This section provides additional information regarding the collection and use of your payment information.
Payment Data is used to complete your transaction, as well as for the detection and prevention of fraud. In support of these uses, we may share your Payment Data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction.
You may update or remove the payment instrument information associated with your personal account by logging in at My Account on the site. After you close your account or remove a payment instrument, however, we may retain your payment instrument data for as long as reasonably necessary to complete your existing transaction, to comply with our legal and reporting requirements, and for the detection and prevention of fraud.
We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems that have limited access and are in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
If a password is used to help protect your personal account and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share it. If you are sharing a computer, you should always log out before leaving our Site to protect access to your information from subsequent users.
Personal information collected on our Site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where we or our service providers maintain facilities. We may retain your personal information for a variety of reasons, such as to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and as long as necessary to provide services.
