Please note that we do not rent, sell, or share your personally identifiable information with third parties or nonaffiliated companies, except in cases where you have granted permission.
We reserve the right to produce and share “aggregate” information. This aggregate information is data we collect about a segment of our users which does not contain any personally identifiable information. We may use this data to generate quantitative and qualitative information and statistics about our users. This aggregate data may be based on geo-location, demographics, usage activity, or related subject matter.
You have the right to decide how much personally identifiable information to disclose, and may change your preferences at any time. As you navigate through our Site and Mobile Application, you will come across some areas that require additional information.
