Privacy Policy


Privacy Policy

we strive to offer visitors the many advantages
of Internet technology and to provide an interactive and personalized experience.
We may use Personally Identifiable Information (your name, e-mail address,
street address, telephone number) subject to the terms of this privacy policy.
We will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unauthorized
third party. Period.

How we gather information from users:

How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting,
the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided.
For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for
access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as
newsletters or when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you
participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and
other interactive areas of our site. Like most Web sites, we
also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools
that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of
your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and
hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store
your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information
each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular
advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we
may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can
choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser
to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain
portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password,
and we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.

What we do with the information we collect:

Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and
deliver more individualized content and advertising. We respect your privacy
and do not share your information with anyone.

Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you)
may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your
usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance
our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what
features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared
with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not
include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to
identify you individually.

We may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on we
to communicate with you about your registration and customization preferences;
our Terms of Service and privacy policy; services and products offered by we
and other topics we think you might find of interest.

Personally Identifiable Information collected by we
may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration,
troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes
and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who
provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service
for example) may access such information. We will use your information only
as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop
our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses.
In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other
times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection
with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement
authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may
not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements:

We expect our partners, advertisers and affiliates
to respect the privacy of our users. Be aware, however, that third parties,
including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers
accessible through our site, may have their own privacy and data collection
policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our site you may
link to, or view as part of a frame on a we page, certain
content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through
we you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information,
Web sites, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. we
is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should
check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing
information on a feature or page operated by a third party.

While on our site, our advertisers, promotional partners or other third parties
may use cookies or other technology to attempt to identify some of your preferences
or retrieve information about you. For example, some of our advertising is
served by third parties and may include cookies that enable the advertiser
to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before. Other
features available on our site may offer services operated by third parties
and may use cookies or other technology to gather information. we
does not control the use of this technology by third parties or the resulting
information, and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third
parties.

You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable
Information on message boards or in chat areas, that information can be viewed
publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge
and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties.
Such activities are beyond the control of we and this
policy.

Children:

we does not knowingly collect or solicit Personally
Identifiable Information from or about children under 18 except as permitted
by law. If we discover we have received any information from a child under
18 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately.

LIMITS ON OUR ABILITIES
Although your privacy is important to us, we cannot ensure that your private
communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed
to third parties. For example, we may be forced to disclose information to
the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties
may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
Additionally, in the event we need to investigate or resolve possible problems
or inquiries, we can (and by use of our Site you authorize us to) disclose
information about you to private entities, law enforcement, or other government
officials as we, in our discretion or as may be required under law, believe
necessary or appropriate. We may also disclose information necessary to contact,
identify, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms
of Service, Acceptable Use Policy, or other policies, to protect our company
or members, and to operate our company, site, and services properly.

Changes to this Policy:

we reserves the right to change this
policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes.
Your continued use of our site following the posting of changes to
these terms will mean you accept those changes. Information collected
prior to the time any change is posted will be used according to the
rules and laws that applied at the time the information was collected.

Governing law:

This policy and the use of this Site are governed by California law. If a dispute
arises under this Policy we agree to first try to resolve it with the help
of a mutually agreed-upon mediator in the following location: Santa Clara County, California.
Any costs and fees other than attorney fees associated with the mediation
will be shared equally by each of us.

If it proves impossible to arrive at a mutually satisfactory solution through
mediation, we agree to submit the dispute to binding arbitration at the following
location: Santa Clara County, California under the rules of the American Arbitration
Association. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitration may be entered
