Personal Information Collection

Two kinds of personal information may be requested during registration: personally identifiable information and demographic information. Personally identifiable information may be required for registration, but other demographic information is not and may be given at your discretion. During registration, may ask for your full name, zip/postal code and an e-mail address. Personally identifiable information is not shared with anyone, nor is it sold to anyone. The demographic information gathered includes street address, city, state, and country. The more information you provide us with, and the more accurate it is, the easier it is for us to provide information to you that you will find useful. In addition to registration we may ask you for personal information at other times, such as when you report a problem with one of our sites or services. may also occasionally ask members to complete surveys that we use for internal research. also tracks information about website visitation, on an aggregated basis. calculates the aggregate number of visits to a site by all members together. One last area in which we ask for your name is on user reviews where you can submit a comment on a particular item by posting written comments which are then entirely public. We ask for a name simply so that other people reading a string of comments will be able to determine which comments come from the same person. You may, therefore, provide a nickname or alias, if you prefer, so that your identity is not disclosed. You should be aware that if you do voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g. user name, e-mail address) on the bulletin boards or forums, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. If you choose to participate anonymously, you should remember that you are still legally liable for the material you post, including claims of libel, invasion of privacy and copyright infringement.
