Personal Information is information about you that we collect and receive related to your use of the Website and/or our products or services, and that is personally identifiable like your name, address, credit or debit card number, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control or to people that we do not employ or manage. Other than the reference to our people search database Opt-Out Policy at the end of this Privacy Policy, this policy does not apply to any information in our people search databases.

Your Personal Information may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States and other countries, where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

We do not rent, sell, or share Personal Information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

  • We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with us.

However, by interacting with or viewing an advertisement you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the advertisement.
