We only collect data that we actually require. Some of the information is voluntarily provided by you when you create an account, register for an event, contact customer service, or purchase something from us. We keep track of your name and contact information, but not credit card numbers (except with your permission and in one of our secured payment gateways).
We use your information to provide the services you've requested, to establish and maintain your accounts, and to keep a lid on your accounts for suspicious activities. We also use it to keep you informed about the goods you're using, your customer service requests, new items you might like, opportunities for you to provide feedback, and policy changes. We make use of the information we collect to further understand the requirements of our users and to improve our websites and services.
