We collect and/or use information in three (3) categories: (1) personally-identifiable information (“PII”) that you voluntarily provide when you register or participate in any features or activities on this Site or offline, (2) information that we passively collect as you navigate or use our Services such as IP Address, unique device ID, or transaction and viewing history; and (3) non-personal information that cannot be used to identify or contact a specific individual, such as anonymous and aggregated information. We may also collect and use PII about other people when you participate in certain programs and features or when you submit news stories or nominations for community awards or recognition that involve other people.
We ask for your consent prior to collecting or accessing PII and location-based information. You may withdraw your consent by changing your options or disabling a service according to your device settings.
We may also share individual or aggregated PII with third parties such as data analytic providers, and operational service providers.
Information about our customers is important to us and we will not sell this information to others. We will not rent, sell, or share your PII with unaffiliated companies or people except: 1) as necessary to provide you with products or services you've requested; 2) when we have your permission; or 3) as follows:
Our Services are generally targeted to adults. Unless we indicate otherwise, you must be at least 18 years old to register and to use the Site and Services. Generally, we will not knowingly collect online PII or any other identifying data from children under 13 years of age. Should we discover that a child under the age of 13 submitted PII to our Site, or other Services without first obtaining verifiable parental consent, we will immediately reject any such entry and delete that information from our database (to the extent technically feasible), unless such information meets an exception under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

Alerts sent via text message also have an opt-out mechanism. Please be aware that we may continue to contact you for administrative, transactional or informational purposes related to your use of our Services, including follow-up messages regarding transactions you have undertaken. By law, such messages are not considered to be unsolicited commercial messages.
