How We Use Personal Information
Your personal information will be kept confidential, and except
rent or lease to others your personal information. We use your
personal information to help us efficiently operate the Service,
to contact you in connection with your transactions and other
activities on the Service (including, but not limited to,
confirmation emails or important news that could affect your
relationship with the Company), and to forward messages to you
from other Service users. These types of communications are known
as "Operational Communications." In some cases, Operational
Communications may also contain commercial messages, such as
banner ads and special offers. By registering with the Company,
you are agreeing to receive Operational Communications.
We also use personal information to send you newsletters, information, offers and other promotional materials for the Company's services. We attempt to send you offers that are of value to you, such as discounts, exclusive offers or special event information. By registering with the Company, you are opting in to receive such emails. To stop receiving such emails (other than Operational Communications), please send a request email to email@example.com.
Lastly, to operate the Service, including supporting your activities on the Service, we may share your personal information with our agents, representatives, contractors and service providers so they can provide us with support services such as authorization of email origination, receipt or support services, customer relationship management services, and promotional fulfillment. We prohibit these parties from using your information for any other purpose. Following termination or deactivation of your account with the Service, we may retain information, including profile information or other personal information, for a reasonable time for backup, audit, or regulatory purposes, or to fulfill a legal requirement.
