How We Use Your Personal Information
If you provide Personal Information to us, we will use it for the purposes for which you provided it.

If you no longer wish to receive any communications whatsoever, please send us an email from the email account you gave us and request that your account be deleted.
From time to time, the Site may have features that allow you to send communications related to the Site to third parties, such as your friends and family. For these features to operate, the Site will collect contact information from you about those third-party recipients (“Third-Party Information”). We will not use this Third-Party Information for any purpose other than to send the communications you have initiated. We may keep a record of the Third-Party Information for a period of time in case we decide we need to resolve problems related to the communications. If the third-party recipient wishes to have information about him or her deleted from our records, the recipient should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also may track and record certain non-personal information about Site users (“Non-Personal Information”), including the type of web browser used, the time and date of visits, the pages of the Site that are viewed, and the time spent on a particular page. We may use aggregate Non-Personal Information to analyze web traffic analysis to help us understand how visitors use the Site and which pages are most popular and to improve the Site and for similar purposes. We do not use this Non-Personal Information to identify or track specific users, but we reserve the right to do so for safety or security reasons, for purposes of investigating a violation of the Terms or applicable law, or for other purposes we determine in good faith are appropriate.

For your convenience, the Site may contain links to web sites owned or controlled by third parties. Those sites’ privacy practices may differ from ours, and we are not responsible for them. We encourage you to read the privacy statement of any web site you choose to visit.

If we become aware that the security of the Site has been or may be compromised or any nonpublic user information has been or may be disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity or otherwise not in accordance with this Statement, we will take measures that we deem appropriate (which may include undertaking an internal investigation, notifying the user, and notifying and cooperating with law enforcement authorities).
