Your email address serves as a unique identifier in our record system, and it is used together with your password to prevent unauthorized access to any information you choose to store on our site. The data you give us about your personal preferences and demographics (ZIP code, occupation, or other data) may be used to help us offer content, advertisements, products and services that are most likely to appeal to you. We do not accept or store registration for anyone under the age of 13 under any circumstances.
Unless you specify that you'd prefer not to hear from us, we might also use the email address you provide at registration to contact you for promotional, administrative, or other reasons. You may have these communications terminated at any time. If you indicate that you are interested in hearing from other companies, we may also share your contact information for that purpose.

From time to time, we may wish to use personal information you provide when requesting a service for purposes beyond those listed above.
