The Website generally requests only a name and email address when signing up for the newsletter. If at any time the Website were to collect personally identifying information, such as your actual name, address, or telephone number, it would only be with your specific knowledge and consent. For instance, if the Website began to offer sweepstakes, and you choose to participate, Service Provider may require personally identifiable information to contact you in case you win. Optional information may also be requested.

 
Servers may also automatically collect information about your computer when you visit the Website, including but not limited to, the type of browser software you use, the operating system you are running, the website that referred you, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. Your IP address is usually associated with the place from which you enter the Internet.

If you provide personally identifiable information (for example when entering a sweepstake), it will be used to provide you with the service you have requested. We may occasionally also use the information to communicate with you about new Website features, products or services, and/or to improve the services that we offer by tailoring them to your needs.
