Examples include: payment processing, data analysis, email delivery, hosting services, customer service and marketing efforts. We may allow selected third parties to use tracking technology on the Website, which will enable them to collect data about how you interact over time. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand online activity. Unless described in this Policy, we do not share, sell, rent or trade any of your information with third parties for their promotional purposes.
We may share or transfer your information in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.

When you share personal information or otherwise interact with public areas of the Website, such personal information may be viewed by all users and may be publicly distributed outside in perpetuity. If you interact with other users of the Website and register through a social network (such as Facebook), your contacts on the social network may see your name, profile photo, and descriptions of your activity. Similarly, other users may be able to view descriptions of your activity, communicate with you within the Website, and view your profile.
We may use first and third party cookies along with similar tracking technologies (like web beacons and pixels) to collect and store personal information, or data that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for the Website to operate and other cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on the Website. Third parties may serve cookies through the Website for analytics and other purposes.
Sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs", web beacons are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
