You should understand when and with whom we may share personal or other information we have collected about you or your activities on the SITES or while using our services. We may transfer your information and process it outside your country of residence, wherever the SITES, their affiliates and service providers operate. We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction. We may combine non-personal information we collect with additional non-personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to the SITES and the most popular features.
We do not share your personal information with others except as indicated or when we inform you and give you an opportunity to opt out of having your personal information shared.
We want you to feel confident using the SITES. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure.
When you register on the SITES, you may be given a choice as to whether you want to receive email messages, newsletters, or both, about product updates, improvements, special offers, or other content by us. If you no longer wish to receive commercial emails or newsletters from us, you will need to use the unsubscribe mechanism set out in the communication. It may take up to three days for us to process an opt-out request.
You may, at any time, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to correct or delete certain personal information that you have provided to us, except personal information or data that is necessary for administration purposes or for fraud prevention measures. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children.
