On May 25, 2018, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) became effective for all companies that collect or process personal data of natural persons in the EU. We are subject to compliance with the GDPR which involves, among other things, additional protections for the privacy of the personal data of users of the Service. We have updated this Policy as part of our compliance plan.
In order for you to access certain Services, we require you to provide us with certain information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information collected may, without limitation, include the following: registration, online surveys, and other online forms that ask users to provide their names, addresses, e-mail addresses and other contact information, including without limitation, any information you authorize us to import or export to or from other websites operated by third party companies (“Integrated Third Party Companies”). Payment information, including without limitation, debit/credit card and/or bank account information, for purchases is processed by our third party payment processing service; such information is not collected by us and is subject to the privacy policies of the payment processing service. You may use some portions of the Service without creating an account.
Automatic Collection. Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet), Internet service provider, domain servers, browser type, computer platform, referring website, date, time and duration of access, and links clicked through. No Personal Information about you is revealed in this process. The Services may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the Services.
Sharing of Personal Information. Personal Information of our users is an important part of our business, and we do not sell it to others. We use and share Personal Information as described below;

We may also use your contact information to send you emails informing you of any changes to the Services, to send you additional information about us, or to offer you other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
Data Retention Policy. Personal Information will be retained until the earlier of (i) receipt from you of written request to delete or (ii) as long as you maintain an account with us or as otherwise necessary to provide you the Services. We will also retain your Personal Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Use of Anonymous Information. We use anonymous information to analyze our Services traffic, but we do not examine this information for individually identifying information. In addition, we may use anonymous IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Services, or to display the content according to your preferences. Traffic and transaction information may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on an aggregate and anonymous basis.
The Services have security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that we obtain from you, but we make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss, misuse, to you or to any third party arising out of any such loss, misuse, or alteration.
