The following policy explains how we collect and use personal information in detail. If you have any concerns about this policy, please feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration; Collection and Use of Information:
Anyone completing and submitting any or part of the forms on the Site is considered a “registrant.”
Collection of PII
Company only gathers PII that is volunteered during the registration process or in response to specific information requests. Examples of PII that may be requested consist of name, address, email address, and telephone number. We also collect credit card or other payment account information in connection with any purchase you make on or through the Site. The decision to provide PII is optional on your part; however, if you decide not to register or provide such information, you may not be able to make purchases on or use certain features of the Site or other services on or through the Site.
Depending on how you interact with our Site, the personal information we collect from you may vary. If you connect to the Site using Facebook, Google+, or another social networking site (each a “Social Networking Site”), we will receive information that you authorize the Social Networking Site to share with us, which may include public profile information, birthday, current city work, school, and email address. When we receive this information, it becomes Company’s account information for purposes of your use of the Site. This information also constitutes personal information and is therefore subject to this Policy. Any information that we collect from your Social Networking Site account may depend on the privacy settings you have set with the Social Networking Site, so please consult the Social Networking Site’s privacy and data practices. You have the ability to disconnect your Social Networking Site account from your account with us by adapting the privacy settings in your Social Networking Site account. If you come to the Site through a Social Networking Site, from other websites or with devices that enable third parties to collect information from or about you, such third parties receive information about you subject to their privacy policies.
Collection of Other Information, Cookies, and Cookie Opt-Out

We may also connect personal information and non-personal information from users via “cookies” (small text files placed by us on user computers), single-pixel GIF image files (also called “Web beacons”), Web server log analysis and other similar technologies. Such information may be used to track usage trends and enhance the user experience, and may be shared with third parties.

Such information may be used to track usage trends and enhance the user experience, and may be shared with third parties.
Without cookies it would be impossible to provide you information and services you are requesting through the Internet. Cookies remember certain information (such as items added in the shopping cart in an online store) and may record your browsing activity. They can also be used to remember arbitrary pieces of information that the user previously entered into form fields, such as names, addresses, passwords and billing address.

Your browser gives you the ability to control cookies. How to do this varies from browser to browser. You should view the Help menu on the browser you use for further information. Your opt-out choice is stored only in that browser, so you should separately set your preferences for other browsers, computers, or devices you may use. If you do opt out of cookies, it may impair our ability to deliver, and your ability to receive, all the services and benefits of the Site.
Use of Information
We use your PII and non-personal information for internal purposes, such as to provide you with the Site and services, to notify you of new products or services, and to otherwise communicate with you.
To the extent third parties may place advertising on the Site, such third parties may utilize cookies or other tracking technologies. We are not responsible for information collected by third parties in this manner, nor for the collection or use of information by other sites to which the Site is linked.

To process payments of purchases you make on the Site, we may share some of your personal information, including credit card or other account information, with third party service providers who help us process transactions on the site.
