3. Information Tracking
The Company may use various technologies to collect information about and track use of the Site.
- Cookies – A cookie is a small file placed on your device by the Site. It is possible to configure devices to refuse to accept cookies; however, doing so may make parts of the Site not function properly.
- Web Beacons – Portions of the Site may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit the Company, for example, to count users who have visited those pages and for other related statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain content and verifying system and server integrity).
III. Use of Information
The Company may use information from Users to operate, improve, and deliver the Site. These uses may include providing you with a more effective User experience; making the Site easier to use by eliminating the need to enter the same information repeatedly; performing research and analysis aimed at improving the Site; diagnosing or fixing problems with the Site; and displaying content customized to your interests, preferences, and location.
The Company also uses information from Users to communicate with Users. The Company may send certain mandatory service communications, such as welcome letters, information on technical service issues, and security announcements.
If you register and provide your email address, we will send you administrative and promotional emails. If you wish to opt out of promotional emails, you may do so by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the email. All users receive administrative emails, and so you cannot opt out of them.

The Company will not share Personal Information except as provided for by this Policy. The Company may also share other information as provided by this Policy.
The Company may share information collected by the Site with businesses that are legally part of the same group as the Company, or that become part of that group.

These service providers will be permitted to obtain only the Personal Information they need to deliver services to the Company. They will be required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and will be prohibited from using it for any other purpose, and to treat such Personal Information in accordance with this Policy.
C. Other Disclosures
