2. Personal Information We Collect
3. Non-Personal Information We Collect
We may collect information about you that is not personal information. When you access our website and/or submit a quote, we may collect such things as your IP address, browser, operating system, referring URL, and other general information about our visitors. This information, on its own, cannot usually be used to identify you.
4. Use of Information
We may use your information for a wide variety of purposes, including printing physical paper copies of it and turning it into an origami hat (kidding again). Specifically, though, we may let your non-personal information be shared with:
- Our host, whose server logs collect the non-personal information described above.
- comScore, Inc. (weird capitalization intentional - but that's how they spell it), which also identifies anonymous user interests on our websites via its Scorecard Research program. You may opt out of this cookie by visiting the Scorecard Research Preference Manager.
Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.
6. Third Party Websites
We may link to third party websites from our own website. We have no control over, and are not responsible for, these third party websites or their use of your personal information. We recommend that, if you have a ridiculous amount of free time (and nothing better to do), you review their privacy policies and other agreements governing your use of their website. Once you do, you should report back to us in a detailed and meticulously proofread memorandum explaining all of these websites, so we may immediately put it to use under that corner of the table that is lower than the rest.
7. Third Party Access to Your Information
8. Law Enforcement
We may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in good faith, in bad faith, or in so-so faith, that it is desirable to do so for the purposes of a civil action, criminal investigation, or other legal matter. In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either. Chances are that if the police are looking into your activities on a quote website, you've really got issues, and we're probably going to hand over your information and tell your family and friends.
The act of policing is, in order to punish less often, to punish more severely.
9. Security of Information
We may, but are not obligated to, secure our website with packs of hungry bunnies; we hope they don't eat your information. However, we make no representations as to the security or privacy of your information. It is in our interest to keep our website secure, but we recommend that you use anti-virus software, firewalls, and other precautions to protect yourself from security threats. (Be the third pig, not one of the first two.)
