We collect Personally Identifiable Information ("PII") from the Site when you choose to provide it to us via an information request form, sign up or contact us email. PII is any information that can be used to identify or locate a particular person or entity. This includes, but is not limited to, name, postal address, telephone number or email address. Once collected, we will store your PII for Site usage purposes and promotional marketing efforts.
We also collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information (Non-PII) via the Site and Services. Non-PII cannot be used to contact any single person or entity and may include, but is not limited to, IP address, content viewed, ad interaction, interaction with other advertiser websites, browser type, Internet Service Provider, the time/date of your visit to the website, your computer's operating system, search terms used and other click and browsing behavior. We use this information for internal purposes such as to improve and customize the Site and to understand and analyze how the Site is being used for marketing purposes.
How We Track It:
The Site and Services use either cookies and/or registry settings on your computer to store user information. A "cookie" is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. Additionally, some ad networks may use web beacons in conjunction with cookies to compile aggregate statistics about usage on the Sites. A web beacon is a transparent image, typically in GIF format that can recognize certain types of information on a visitor's computer, such as a visitor's cookie number, time and date of page view, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed.
You may disable cookies on your web browser, thereby also rendering some web beacons unusable. You can use the Site and Services even if cookies are disabled, but this may impact our ability to adapt any of the Sites or Services according to your preferences.
The Site and Services, in some cases, allows for open forum-like communication via online forums, message boards, blog commentary and Q&A threads. Please note that any information disclosed in these areas may become public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your PII through these channels.

Information Sharing and Disclosure:
In addition to using the anonymous identifying information that we track for internal purposes in the manner described, this information may also, on an aggregate basis, be shared with and used by third parties with which we have contracted (e.g., our third-party content providers and licensees of Answer Media' services). Furthermore, in addition to Answer Media providing its own advertising, Answer Media uses third-party advertising companies and networks to serve ads when you visit the Site. These companies and networks include, among others, third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors, and research firms. These companies and networks may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to the Site in order to provide ads about goods and services of interest to you. In the course of serving advertisements to the Site, our ad networks may place or recognize a unique "cookie" on your browser or use a "web beacon." An example of such ad network is Yahoo, Inc. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by Yahoo, please refer to their advertising practices, terms and privacy.
