You may also provide information about a third party through the Services. We may combine this information with other information we collect from your interaction with the Services or from other companies.

- (a) To manage and enhance your use of the Site or the Services.
- (b) To periodically send you promotional emails about new products, special offers, and other information that may be of interest.

- (f) With vendors, consultants, marketing partners, and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out the Services on our behalf.
Although we endeavor to keep your information as private as possible, there are certain situations in which we may need to disclose your personal information. Therefore, we may also disclose your personal information if: (a) It is required to comply with the law or a legal process; (b) we believe it is necessary to protect the safety of yourself or others, as well as our Company; or (d) You grant us permission to disclose such information. Any such release decisions may be made by us in our sole discretion.

4. COOKIES DISCLAIMER
When you visit the Site, a cookie may be saved on your computer, and if you return to the Site the cookie may be read. A “cookie,” is a small text file placed on the user's hard drive to track usage of the Site and collect basic information, which may include certain of your preferences.
If you would like to avoid cookies, your web browser may have an option that enables you to disable or not accept cookies. Please note that should you disable or not accept cookies, portions of the Site may not properly function and some features or activities may not be available to you (for example, you may not be able to complete your transaction)..
We use analytics companies (e.g. Google Analytics) to track your use of Services, so that we can improve the Site and Services.
We currently do not, and have no plans to, work with advertisers, advertising networks, or advertising servers (“Advertising Services”). However, we reserve the right to work with such Advertising Services, to deliver to you advertisements based on your interests and online activities.
On most mobile devices, you can control the interest-based ads you see in two different ways: (1) changing the privacy settings of the device itself; and (2) changing the privacy settings of your browser. In addition, please note that if you use ad blocking software on your device, this may interfere with certain features and cause a disruption of service.
5. OTHER TECHNOLOGY AND CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES
We may use other technologies to capture specific data, such as the pages you view, the items you download, the links you click, your access times, and your Internet Protocol (IP) address, domain name, and system configurations and settings, to help us understand how you use our technologies, serve you relevant content, and to assist you with questions you may have regarding our Services. We may capture this data to provide you with access to information about your business relationship with us and to facilitate your use of the Site and Services.
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do Not Track (“DNT”) feature or setting, where users can indicate preferences regarding tracking and cross-site tracking when they visit certain sites. Our Site does not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your preference to be tracked online across third party websites. However, we do not track such browsing activities and, while we cannot provide an absolute guarantee of future intent, we do not plan to do so at this time. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, we currently do not use technology that recognizes or responds to DNT signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about the practice in a revised version of this Policy.
6. THIRD PARTY SERVICES AND PRODUCTS
Some third-party services or products may be referenced or listed in the Site. These services are provided using those third-party’s computers.
