- Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"), which may include your first and last name, home or other physical address, telephone number, e-mail address, user id, other identifiers that permit physical or online contact with you, or any information about you collected online and maintained in personally identifiable form in combination with any of the preceding categories.

In addition to the information provided directly by you, we (and third parties that offer features through the Services) may collect non-PII through the use of "cookies," "web beacons," "Flash cookies" or by other electronic means.
8. Web Beacons. We, our third-party service providers, advertisers, and partners, also may use "web beacons" or similar technologies. Web beacons are small strings of code placed on a web page to collect data about how visitors use the Services. For example, web beacons may be used to count the number of users who visit the Services or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor to the Services.

16. In addition, we may share your information as described below:
- Information You Elect to Share: You may choose to share information with Third Parties by clicking on links to those Third Parties from within the Services.

18. Information Security. We take information security seriously, and we use reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the PII we collect from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. But we have no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit. If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your PII.
19. Additionally, and as you are likely aware, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take
commercially reasonable steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect that your PII, searches, or other communications always will remain secure. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your PII, we will notify you if reasonably possible and as reasonably necessary so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may notify you under such circumstances using the e-mail address(es) we have on record for you. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your PII. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s Websites at https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/ for information about how to protect against identity theft.

include the right to (i) request access to and rectification or erasure of your PII; (ii) obtain restriction of processing or object to the processing of your PII; and (iii) ask for a copy of your PII to be provided to you or a third party in a machine-readable format.

Certain web browsers may allow you to enable a "do not track" option that sends signals to the websites you visit, indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is different than blocking cookies as browsers with the "do not track" option selected may still accept cookies. Our Services currently do not have the functionality to recognize or honor "do not track" browser signaling. We do not respond to "do not track" signals. If we do so in the future, we will modify this Privacy Statement accordingly.
