Personal information is any information that identifies users or would enable someone to contact them, such as name, email address, phone number and other non-public information associated with such information.
Security and Privacy
We employ reasonable technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information. We use industry-recognized technical safeguards, such as firewalls, and have adopted and implemented security procedures to protect your information from loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration. Notwithstanding our efforts, we cannot guarantee absolute or unqualified protection of this information given the open nature and resulting instability of the Internet and World Wide Web, and we make no representations or warranties as to the effectiveness of our security and assume no liability for security breaches or any failure in the security of your computer equipment, your internet service provider or other networks and communications providers.
Sharing of Information
We will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their use without your consent. We may share your contact and other information with our partners for limited purposes, with certain third parties (who may only use the information for the purpose for which it was provided), with courts, law enforcement and other relevant third parties and with our acquirer if we are ever acquired.
We may, however, share your name, email address and other contact information with certain of our partners so that they may assist you in using our offerings, contact you with offers, services or products that may be of interest to you, and, if you consent, provide you with their products or services. Our partners are prohibited from using your contact information for any other purpose without your consent.
WE WILL NOT PROVIDE OUR PARTNERS OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY WITH YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION.
Occasionally, we enter into contracts with carefully-selected third parties so that they can assist us in servicing you for example, providing customer service, or to engage in co-marketing activities with us. Our contracts with such third parties prohibit them from using any of your personal information for any purpose beyond the purpose for which it was shared.
We may also share non-personally identifying information in the aggregate with third parties, such as the media, industry observers, customers, potential customers or partners. For example, we may disclose mobile search trends, email open rates by industry, AND the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, our site or evaluated or purchased our offerings.
If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, a sale of all or a substantial portion of our assets, or other similar transaction, your information may be transferred as part of that transaction.
We may also share your personal information with any of our parents or subsidiaries. Any such parent or subsidiary may use your information only according to the terms of this privacy statement.
We may disclose your personal information to courts, law enforcement authorities and/or other relevant third parties, such as internet service providers, when such disclosure is necessary or advisable, in our sole discretion, to conduct an investigation, respond to a third party or law enforcement subpoena or court order, bring legal action, prevent harm to others or pursue other relief when you or a third party are or may be: (a) violating our terms and conditions of use; (b) causing injury or other harm to, or otherwise violating our property or other legal rights, or those of other users or third parties; or (c) violating federal, state, local, or other applicable law. This disclosure may include transferring information to the U.S. and outside any and all foreign jurisdictions. To the extent we are legally permitted to do so, we will attempt to notify you in the event that we are required to provide your personal information to third parties in connection with a subpoena.

Cookies, Web Beacons and Pixel Tags
We use a variety of other technologies on our sites. Among these are cookies: a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer so that the website can remember your browser in the future. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value, usually a unique number. When you visit our Site, open our email, encounter our services online or click on one of our banner ads or videos, we or an authorized third party may send you a cookie.
Cookies may be used by us in many ways: they allow us to verify the login status of customers using products or services linked directly with our site, track point of entry to point of registration for those users participating in our affiliate signup programs, track and measure the success of a particular marketing campaign, provide you with improved customer service and provide you with more relevant content. Cookies also allow us to track overall site usage and determine areas users prefer, as well as enable us to make your visit to our website easier by recognizing you when you return and help to provide you with a customized experience.
Information gathered through usage of a cookie is not linked to any personal identifying information, unless you become a member. Once you submit personally identifiable information on our site, we may link such information with cookies or other identifiers that are associated with your visit(s) to our site. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. If you choose to disable cookies, you may still use our site; however, you may have limited access to some areas within our site or a different experience.
Some of our web pages, emails, and other online content may contain electronic images provided by us or authorized third parties known as web beacons, also known as single-pixel GIFs, which are invisible graphical images. These web beacons allow us to count users who have visited our site, seen our ads, or opened our email, and to track whether messages are shared using our social share features and, once shared, whether these messages are opened by the recipient. In addition, when you click on a link in an email, we record this individual response to allow us to customize our offerings to you. Web beacons collect only limited information, such as a cookie identifier, time and date of a page being viewed, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.
We may from time to time engage third parties to track and analyze information about your activity on our site, including data gathered by cookies, web beacons and pixel tags.
Like most standard website servers, we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP) referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Our Anti-Spam Policy tolerates only permission-based email. You always have the opportunity to opt-out or change preferences by following a link in the footer of all non-transactional email messages sent by us or by emailing us at yellow fringe or calling us at (775) 225-4789.
In addition, anyone receiving emails from us on behalf of our customers always has the opportunity to opt-out of email messages from such customer by using the opt-out link included in the link in the footer of the message.
To manage the information we receive about you from an SNS or any other third party, you will need to follow the instructions from that party for updating your information and changing your privacy settings. The information we collect is covered by this privacy statement and the information the third party collects is subject to such third party's privacy practices. Privacy choices you have made on any third party site will not apply to our use of the information we have collected directly through our applications.
