The information you allow us to access is influenced by the privacy settings you establish at the Third-Party Access Sites. You can control and find out more about these settings at the Third-Party Access Sites. For example, we may access and store some or all of the following information, as allowed by you, the Third-Party Access Sites and your preferences:

Your authorization takes place when you opt-in to the Application on a Third-Party Access Site, or when you access a web page on a Third-Party Access Site that contains the Application.
    Registration may be required and personal information may also be collected in certain portions of the Website or Application in which you specifically and knowingly provide such information, e.g. community postings. We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources, to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database.
    We never use or install spyware on your computer, nor do we use spyware to retrieve information from your computer.
    Also, like many websites, we use "cookies", which are small text files that are stored on your computer or equipment when you visit certain online pages that record your preferences. We use cookies to track use of the Website and Application. We may also use cookies to monitor traffic, improve the Website or Application and make it easier and/or relevant for your use. You may occasionally get cookies from companies advertising on our behalf. We do not control these cookies, and these cookies are not subject to this Privacy Policy.
    You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but, if you prefer, you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you disable cookies, you may lose some of the features and functionality of the Website and Applications.
    If we run a contest or sweepstakes relating to the Website or Application, it will be accompanied by a set of rules. The rules for each contest/sweepstakes will specify how the information gathered from you for entry will be used and disclosed, if it is different than as described in this Privacy Policy. In conjunction with your entry in such contest or sweepstakes, personal information will be collected only if you voluntarily submit it to our sponsors or us.
    How We Collect Information about You
    When you access our application, we collect and store certain profile information that you provide directly or through the Third-Party Access Sites. The bulk of this information is collected and stored through the use of web logs, which are files on our web servers that record actions taken on the Application and Website.
    You may be able to take part in certain activities on our Website or in the Application that give you the opportunity to communicate or share information not just with us, but also with other users. These include participating in forums and message boards; posting public comments to other users activities; sending messages or invitations to other users, either directly on our websites or to their e-mail accounts; and chats with other users. We may record and store archives of these communications on our servers and you acknowledge and consent to the recording and storage of such communications. Please remember that any information you share in public areas, such as message boards or feedback sections, becomes public, and therefore this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you choose to make public. Please be careful about what you disclose and do not post any personal information that you expect to keep private.
    When you access the Website or Application, we collect certain technical information in order to (i) analyze the usage of our sites and services which allows us to improve the service, (ii) provide a more personalized experience and (iii) manage advertising.

This information may be used to supplement your profile and may be combined with other information we collect.
    How We Use the Information We Collect

    When you interact with the Website or Application, our servers may keep an activity log that does not identify you individually ("Anonymous Information").

    We use information that is not personally identifiable to help us determine how users use the Website and Application and who our users are so we can improve our product offering and ensure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many people as possible. We also use Anonymous Information to provide statistical "ratings" information in aggregated form to our partners and other third parties about how our users collectively use the Website and Application. We may also use or share Anonymous Information (or other information, other than personal information) in any other manner that we deem appropriate or necessary.
    We may share non-personal information with our partners and others from time to time. Examples of such non-personal information include the number of users who visited the Website or Application during a specific time period. This information generally is shared in an aggregated form.
