INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
"Personal Information" means information that can identify you as a specific individual, such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, or other contact information, whether at work or at home.
On all Team web sites that collect Personal Information, we specifically describe what information is required in order to provide you with the product, service, or feature you have requested.
We collect Personal Information when you contact us, when you register with us, when you use our products and services, when you submit an order with us, when you visit our web sites or the web sites of certain of the Team's partners, and when you enter promotions and sweepstakes.
When you register with us on this site, you first complete the on-line registration form, which requires you to create a username and password. During registration, you may be also required to provide Personal Information, which may include name, billing address, shipping address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and credit card expiration date. We use this information so that we may contact you about the services and products on the site(s) in which you have expressed interest or requested and to facilitate the completion of an order.

Other Information Collected
Some information may be collected automatically every time you visit the Team's web sites, such as cookies and computer information. In addition, information may be collected from other independent, third-party sources. We also collect information about which pages you visit within this site. This site visitation data is identified only by a unique URL.
As is true of most web sites, the Team gathers certain information automatically and stores it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet services provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. The Team uses this information to analyze trends, to screen for fraud, to administer the Team's sites, to track users' movements around the web sites and to gather demographic information about the Team's user base as a whole.
Information from Third Party Sources
To improve services and enhance personalization, the Team may periodically obtain information about you from other independent third party sources and add it to our account information. For example, when you visit a site on which the Team advertises, and click through such advertisement, the Team may place cookies on your computer.

The Team uses your e-mail address(es) to contact you regarding the status of your order when necessary and to send you a Receipt Purchase/Sale Confirmation and Order Shipping Notification.
Special Offers and Updates
The Team collects information about which sections of its web site you visit most often, so that it can send you our newsletter and information about relevant offers, promotions, contests, and sweepstakes which may interest you.
Accordingly, the Team will occasionally send you information on products, services, special deals, promotions and sweepstakes.
The Team may, but is not obligated to, send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For example, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.
Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications since they are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you may have the option to deactivate your account.
We also collect information for research purposes and to provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients. The Team uses the information collected for its own internal marketing and demographic studies to improve customer service and product offerings.
We will communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the products and services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by e-mail, live chat or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.

Storage and Security of Personal Information Storage
The Team stores the information it collects on computers located in a controlled, secure facility protected from physical or electronic unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
The Team protects the privacy and integrity of the information it collects by employing appropriate administrative protocols, technical safeguards, and physical security controls designed to limit access, detect and prevent the unauthorized access, improper disclosure, alteration, or destruction of the information under its control.
