Some of the information collected when you use the Services, such as your name, postal address, email address, credit card information, or telephone number, may allow you to be identified (“Personal Information”).

Cookies are text files placed in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not reveal any Personal Information unless you choose to provide this information, for example, by registering on the Site. However, once you choose to provide Personal Information to the Services, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. If you decide not to permit cookies on your computer, this may affect your ability to use the Services.

Business Transfers: If a transfer of all or substantially all of the Site’s assets were transferred to another company, one of the assets that would likely be included in the transfer is the database of Personal Information.
