Conditions of use.
“Personally Identifiable Information” is any information that personally identifies you, such as
your name, street address, email address, or telephone number. We collect such information
when, for example, you enter a contest, subscribe to our email newsletter, and participate in other
interactive online activities such as forums.
When we collect Personally Identifiable Information from you, you will have the opportunity to
“opt in” to receive email or other digital communications from us and/or our business partners.
