We will receive and record this Profile Information. The Profile Information may include personal information about you (collectively, “Personal Information”). The Sites may also collect other forms of Profile Information and Personal Information, such as search queries you conduct on the Sites and your responses to surveys and questions and your completion of forms.

- Disclosure and Use of Personal Information
We may share Personal Information. We may disclose some or all of your Personal Information to business partners. Business partners may include, but are not limited to, our affiliates and companies that provide services in connection with ours. We do provide some of our services through contractual arrangements with affiliates, vendors, services providers, credit card and payment processing providers, advertisers, sponsors, business partners and associates and other third parties (“Business Parties”). We and our Business Parties use your information to operate the Sites and to deliver services. We will encourage our Business Parties to adopt and post privacy policies. However, Business Parties’ use of Personal Information is governed by the respective privacy policies of those Business Parties, and is not subject to our control. We may work with Business Parties to obtain specific services or to perform functions on our behalf, and the Business Parties may have access to Personal Information as necessary to provide those services and perform their functions. For example, credit card, debit card and other forms of online payments made to conduct online transactions are provided to and processed by one or more third parties and payment processors. The Sites may also incorporate application program interfaces and other software and applications owned, operated or managed by third parties. The privacy policies of these third parties will apply to the Personal Information you submit, rather than this Policy. We may transfer Personal Information across state and country borders for the purposes of data consolidation, storage, and simplified customer information management. We may transfer Personal Information to any person or entity succeeding to our business, including as a result of the sale of all or substantially all of our assets or a merger. We may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use the Sites or our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to
law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful. We may also provide information about our customers’ sales, traffic patterns, and related sites information to third party advertisers. We may also use information to help provide and personalize the services you request and expect from us, to conduct direct marketing and sales promotions and to better enhance your experience at the Sites or in using any of our services or those of our affiliates.
- Subscriptions by Email or Messaging
We may use the Personal Information we gather on the Sites, including contact information, to inform you and others via email or other communications regarding the following: information and reminders about our services and scheduled appointments and reservations, additional and new products and services available from us or our sponsors, updates at the Sites, newsletters, or requests for opinions on current products and services or potential new products and services that we may offer. If you no longer wish to receive such information from us, you can opt-out by: (a) following the instructions provided in the initial emails or messages you receive; (b) sending an email to the address listed above with the instructions about which information you would like to remove; or (c) if an available feature, accessing your account at the Sites to change your preferences.
Notwithstanding anything contained in this Policy to the contrary, we may use, as we deem appropriate, statistical data generated through use of the Sites provided that neither our use nor the statistical data result in the disclosure of any Personal Information that will directly or indirectly identify you. Our email communications to you may use a click-through URL linked to the Sites. When you click on one of those URLs, we will track this click-through data to measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this manner, you should not click on any text or graphic links in our communications to you.
- Security of Certain Information
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through the Sites cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party. We use commercially reasonable safeguards and security procedures to keep Personal Information and Profile Information confidential and secure from unauthorized access, disclosure, use, alteration, unlawful destruction, or accidental loss. We do not guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat these measures or access and use Personal Information for improper purposes. We assume no liability in those circumstances, nor for any Personal Information once it is transported onto a managed communication network (including the Internet).
The security of your online profile relies on your protection of your Profile Information. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your user Profile Information, including your password and for all activities that occur under your account. You may not share your password with anyone. We will never ask you to send your password or other sensitive information to us in an email, though we may ask you to enter this type of information on the Sites.
Any email or other communication purporting to be from the Sites requesting your password or asking you to provide sensitive account information via email, should be treated as unauthorized and suspicious and should be reported to us immediately by emailing the above email address. If you believe someone else has obtained access to your password, please change it immediately by logging in to your account and report it immediately by emailing the above email address.
- Disclosure and Use of Non-Personal Information; Cookies
- Links and Third Party Sites
As a courtesy to you, the Sites may contain links to websites and resources owned by other individuals and entities, including those of our affiliates and sponsors, or may bring such third party material and resources into the Sites via “inverse hyperlinks” and framing technology (collectively, the “Third Party Sites”). As an example, we may enable you to apply for or submit information in connection with seeking employment with us or with one of our related companies. In such instances, we may provide links to Third Party Sites where employment related information may be input by you and collected by such third parties. We have no access to or control over Third Party Sites or cookies used by Third Party Sites. When you access those links, you are leaving the Sites and are accessing the Third Party Sites at your own risk. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other Third Party Sites; nor do we endorse, and we are not responsible for, the information and content contained on Third Party Sites; nor are we responsible for maintaining links to or availability of Third Party Sites.
