The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include:
Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the websites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. Those sites (or the third party content on those sites) may continue to engage in activities you might view as tracking even though you have expressed this preference, depending on the sites’ privacy practices. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, we do not currently respond to the browser DNT signals on when you use our services and products or interact with our Website or online services.
We do not control these third parties' tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly. For information about how you can opt out of receiving targeted advertising from many providers, see Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information.

Your Role in Protecting Your Privacy
Protecting Your Personal Information. You play an important role in ensuring the security of Personal Information. We encourage you to use passwords to prevent unauthorized access to your online account. We recommend that you use unique, non-obvious passwords, that you periodically change your passwords, and that you not share your passwords with others. Many computers and devices store information in the computer’s or device’s memory, on disk drives, on the SIM card, and/or on SD memory cards. Therefore, before selling, discarding, trading in, or giving away your computer or device, be sure you destroy all personal data (by overwriting the data) on any disk drives and remove and retain your SIM and SD memory card and follow the manufacturer's instructions for deleting Personal Information or other data on the computer or device. (This can be found in your owner's manual or on the manufacturer’s web site.)
Limit Third-Party Access. If you provide a third-party with access to your device, or share your password or PIN, you should understand that your Personal Information may be accessed, deleted, altered, or transferred to another device or our network servers by the person using the device, and that we will treat that user as you for purposes of this Policy.
Social Networking, Forums and Chat Rooms. If you use or link to a public forum, bulletin board, chat room, or social network on or from our Website, be aware that any information you post or submit can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, including to send you unsolicited messages. We urge you not to share your Personal Information (for example, your name, phone numbers, addresses, passwords or PIN, etc.) on these websites. We are not responsible for access to or use of information you choose to submit or share with others. For example, if you post your wireless number on a social network in order to receive updates by text message, standard message charges will apply to such messages.
Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
We do not control third parties' collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising.

Accessing and Correcting Your Information
You can review and change your personal information by logging into the Website and visiting your account profile page.
You may also send us an email at email@example.com to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
Your California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. We do not store any credit card information.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you.

We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Website like message boards.
