✓ Email Addresses. We use your email address for both “administrative” (e.g., confirming your registration) and, with your consent, “promotional” (e.g., newsletters, new listings, special discounts, event notifications, special third-party offers) purposes. Email messages we send to you may contain code that enables our database to track your usage of the e-mails, including whether the email was opened and what links (if any) were clicked. You may opt-out of receiving promotional emails and other promotional communications from us at any time via the opt-out links provided in such communications, or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your specific request. However, we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to the Services (such as service announcements, security alerts, update notices, or other administrative messages) without affording you the opportunity to opt-in or out of receiving such communications.
✓ Use for Research. In addition to the uses outlined above, by using the Services, you agree to allow us to anonymously use the information from you and your interaction with the Services to continue our research into event patterns and general trends, so that we may continue to improve the Services for users and the general public. This research may be published in our blogs or interviews. However, all of your responses will be kept anonymous, and no Personal Data will be published without your consent.
✓ Financial information. We may use your financial information or authorized payment method to process payment for any purchases, subscriptions or sales made on the Services, to protect against or identify possible fraudulent transactions, and otherwise as needed to manage our business. We transmit your financial information to our third-party payment processors. We do not collect or store your payment information on our own servers.
Securing Your Personal Data
Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, the inherent insecurity of the Internet and other factors, may compromise the security of your Personal Data at any time. Nevertheless, we strive to safeguard Personal Data to ensure that information is kept private and secure at all times. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards that are intended to appropriately protect against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Data in our possession. We employ security measures such as using firewalls to protect against intruders, building redundancies throughout our network (so that if one server goes down, another can cover for it) and testing for and protecting against network vulnerabilities.
How We Respond to Legal Requests or Prevent Harm
We may access, preserve and share your information without notice or consent from you in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. For example, we may provide information to third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud and abuse on and off of our Services. Information we receive about you may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also may retain information from accounts disabled for violations of our terms for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other violations of our terms.

Our Services are not directed to children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect, maintain or use Personal Data from children under the age of 13. If you learn that your child has provided us with Personal Data, you may alert us. Should we learn that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Data, we will delete that information from our database and terminate the child’s account.
