We collect different types of information from you when you visit the Site or otherwise contact us.
Personally-identifiable Information. When you register for an account (“Account”) as a member of the Site (“Member”), we collect your first and last name, your birth date (for purposes of eligibility and legal compliance) and your payment information (e.g., valid credit card number, expiration date and billing address) which together constitute your “Personally-identifiable Information.”
HOW WE USE PERSONALLY-IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We use your Personally-identifiable Information in a variety of ways:

- To operate and improve the Site;
- To deliver and improve the Services;
- To verify the legitimacy of Member postings to Profiles, Comments and Messages; and
- For internal business analysis and other internal business purposes.
HOW WE SHARE PERSONALLY-IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We will not sell, rent or lease your Personally-identifiable Information to third parties. We may disclose your Personally-identifiable Information, without notice, to third parties in the following instances:
- We have your permission to do so;

- The disclosure is to your chosen payment provider to fulfill purchases of the Services or other services or goods as requested by you;
- The disclosure is reasonably related to the sale or other disposition of all or part of our business or assets;
- When we believe, in our sole discretion, that the disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law;
- When we believe, in our sole discretion, that the disclosure is necessary to respond to legal process, including subpoenas, served on us by a third party, or to respond to a request or demand for assistance from law enforcement or a government agency;

Our business partners are prohibited from using the information except to provide these services on our behalf, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information.
SECURITY OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
The security of your Personally-identifiable Information is important to us. Skootzi, and our trusted business partner(s) that host the Site and maintain the servers through which we provide the Services, take reasonable measurers to secure your Personally-identifiable Information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personally-identifiable Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. When you enter Personally-identifiable Information (such as a credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We use a third party credit card processing company. We will only share with them (via SSL) your Personally-identifiable Information that is needed to process your credit card payments, and they are prohibited from using your Personally-identifiable Information for any other purpose. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personally-identifiable Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We make requested changes and deletions to your Personally-Identifiable information, Business Contact Information and Member Content as soon as practicable, but it may be impossible to remove this information completely, since it may remain in our backup files and/or logs.
