vendors. If you participate in a contest or sweepstakes, your personal
information may be used by us, or trustworthy third parties acting on
our behalf, to process your entry and fulfill any prize awarded to you.
From time to time, in an effort to improve our service, we may ask
third parties to conduct marketing-research analyses on our behalf and,
as such, the information we provide to them is restricted to
marketing-research analyses only. Any personal information we provide
to such third parties is protected under confidentiality agreements.
We may disclose your personal information (i) if you violate our Terms
of Use or any law, rule, or regulation, or (ii) if required by law or
regulatory authority (for example, court order or subpoena).

What We Won`t Do With Personal Information
We will not sell or rent your personal information to any third parties.
Security of our customers` personal information is important to us.
As a member, your personal information is password-protected. If you
ever forget your password, we will help you create a new one. Remember
to log out of your account and close your browser window when you have
finished visiting our Site in order to ensure that others cannot access
your personal information.
To protect personal information transmitted to us, we use a security
system that includes firewall technologies, intrusion detection
systems, logical network segmentation, restricted access to stored
profile information, and security restrictions to our databases and
We permit authorized personnel only to access personal information.
We use industry-standard, secure-socket-layer (SSL) technology, which
is utilized by most popular browsers, including Netscape and Microsoft
Explorer, to encrypt (or convert into code) your personal information
before it is transferred across the Internet. To further safeguard your
most sensitive credit card information, we transfer such information
across the Internet in an encrypted format and then store such
information in our secure database.
Since we do not control transmissions over the Internet, via commercial
Internet service providers, and/or the security of your personal
computer, we cannot guarantee 100 percent secure transmission via the
Internet. Use of the Internet is at your own risk. Also, it is
important that you take steps to protect yourself against unauthorized
access to your computer and your password.
