individuals who specifically request that we do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive our
messaging, attended one of our events, or have purchased one of our products. The Site collects personally

information includes name and e-mail address for registration or opt-in purposes and name, postal address, and
credit card information when registering for our events or purchasing our products. All of this information is
provided to us by you.
We also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For
example, we may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows us, among other
things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the Site. We also may use a
standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site. Cookies are
small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when
visitors use the Site, cookies help us deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit us, and track
user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the
Site where you may have entered preference information before. The Site also may use web beacons (single-pixel
graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open
HTML-formatted email messages.

changes to our website, new services, or special offers, resolve disputes, troubleshoot issues, and enforce our
website’s terms and conditions.

important exceptions to this rule that are described in the following paragraphs.

purposes of fraud investigations, alleged intellectual property infringement, or any other suspected illegal
activity or matters that may expose us to legal liability.
Although we do not disclose individually identifiable information, we may disclose aggregate data about our
website’s visitors to advertisers or other third parties for marketing and promotional purposes.
From time to time, we may use third party suppliers to provide services on our website. If a supplier wants to
collect information about you, you will be notified. However, you will never be required to give information to a
third party supplier. We restrict the way third party suppliers can use your information. They are not allowed to
sell or give your information to others.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third
parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be
seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of
