- Submit an entry in a contest or sweepstakes sponsored by us, respond to one of our surveys or participate in another feature of our website; or
- Provide us with user content, ideas, information, user reviews, comments, feedback or other submissions.
We do not sell (or trade or rent) your personal information to third parties for their own marketing use. It’s possible, however, that we might acquire or merge with or be acquired by another company or that we might sell certain of our assets. In that event, we may disclose your personal information to another company, but that disclosure will be subject to the privacy notice that we then have in effect.
As do most Internet retailers, we engage third parties to perform functions on our behalf consistent with this Privacy Notice. We may provide your personal information to those third parties in order to allow them to perform their functions for us. Such information will be transmitted only through reasonably secure channels. We may also receive information from third party partners, such as marketing and demographic data, offline records and information from an advertiser about your experiences or interactions with them, which information we may combine with other information we receive from or about you.
