You are not required to provide personal information as a condition of using our Website, except as may be necessary to provide you a product or service at your request; these products or services may include some of our apps or online services, such as those providing premium content or exclusive offers.

We do use the data from time to time for statistical purposes but maintain the anonymity of each individual user so that the person cannot be identified. If you elect to participate in certain analytics, communications, and marketing programs, including those operated or run by third parties, we may also enhance personal data by obtaining or merging personal data with technical, cookie, or other data we collect or that we receive from third parties; we would use this enhanced data to create a more complete profile for a more customized user experience. In cases when personal data is provided to others to provide you with products or services you have requested, or for other purposes you have authorized, we rely on technical and organizational means to assure that applicable data security regulations are followed.
Collection And Processing of Personal Data
We collect personal data only when you provide it through registration, completion of forms or e-mails, as part of an order for products or services, inquiries or requests about materials being ordered, and similar situations in which you have chosen to provide the information to us.

We may disclose the personal data we collect to third-party service providers in connection with services that they perform for us, such as running and fulfilling promotions, conducting surveys, and e-mail and direct mail delivery services. Your personal data will not otherwise be passed on by us or by our agents for use by third parties in any form whatsoever, unless we have obtained your consent, and are legally required to do so such as to comply with the law or a legal request such as a subpoena, to protect the company’s rights, property or interests, or in the event of a sale of assets or another corporate restructuring.
We will retain control of and responsibility for the use of any personal data you disclose to us. Some of this data may be stored or processed at computers located in other jurisdictions whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. In such cases, we will ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that country to maintain protections on the data that are equivalent to those that apply in the country in which you live.
