3. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY.
Our Sites and our products and services are not directed to persons under 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personal information without such parent or guardian’s consent, he or she should contact us. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete such information from our files.
We use a variety of technologies on our Sites. Among these are cookies and other similar technologies. A cookie is 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. Cookies generally do not permit us to personally identify you.
Cookies may be used by us in many ways, including to track overall site usage and determine areas users prefer, as well as enable us to make your visit to our Sites easier by recognizing you when you return and help to provide you with a customized experience.
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 Sites; however, you may have limited access to some areas within our Sites or a different experience.

5. SHARING OF INFORMATION AND DISCLOSURE.
We will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their use without your consent.
Occasionally, we enter into contracts with third parties so that they can assist us in servicing you (such as hosting services). We may also share non-personally identifying information in the aggregate with third parties, such as the media, industry observers, potential customers or partners. For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, our Sites.
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 will notify you by email and/or a prominent notice on one or both of our Sites of any such transaction and the choices you may have regarding your information.
Lastly, 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 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 the European Economic Area.
