    • Facebook Profile/Other Integrations or Applications.  We may, from time to time, allow you to integrate certain other online profiles, such as your Facebook™ profile in certain cases. In those cases, you will be subject to the privacy policies of those third party websites and/or applications. Please consult the privacy policies of any third party websites and/or applications before using them to send information to others through the site.  Your personally identifiable information will likely be visible to others through these third party social media integrations and applications on the site.
  1. Aggregate Data.  Aggregate data is data we collect about a group or category of features, services or individuals, from which individual identities have been removed. For example, information about how you use a feature may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same feature, without any personal information included in the resulting data.  We use aggregate data to help identify trends and understand User needs so we can provide better features and services.

We may also share automatically collected and other aggregate non-personally-identifiable information with interested third parties to assist them in understanding how people make certain consumer choices, the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the site or for purposes of Users in conducting market research.  We may also collect demographic data or information, including, without limitation, income, disabilities, educational attainment, home ownership, employment status, hobbies, interests, product ownership and location.

Cookies also keep track of services you have used, record registration information regarding your login name and password, ensure you do not repeatedly see advertisements, record your preferences and keep you logged into the site.  We treat general user data as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the personally identifying information mentioned above and, in those cases, will only use it as aggregate data.
  1. Third Party Collected Data. We may use, and allow third parties to use, web beacons on the site to monitor the effectiveness of advertising or for other legitimate purposes.  Web beacons are small, graphic images on web pages, web-based documents, or in email messages that allow us or third parties to monitor who is visiting the site or if the email has been read.  Web beacons collect the IP address of the computer that the web beacon is sent to, the URL of the page the web beacon comes from and the time it was viewed.  Web beacons may be linked to your personal information.  We may also use third-party ad servers, links or network advertisers, to deliver ads to you.  These third-party ad servers may use cookies, web beacons or other technology to collect non-personally identifiable information about your visits to our site in order to present advertisements that may be of interest to you.  Users or participants in any surveys that are hosted on, accessed by or routed through the site should consult the privacy and other policies of third parties through whom they are providing information.  See “User Provided Information” above for additional information regarding integration with or use of third party social networking applications and other third party applications for additional information regarding how this may result in the sharing of your personally identifiable information.

California Online Privacy Protection Act
CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy.

This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
