Posting Messages, Comments, and Content
Our Online Services may have collaboration areas, including but not limited to “Challenges,” “Feedback,” and “Community Favorites,” that permit users to collaborate and/or share information. Some of our Online Services may permit you to select a display name or image that will be “nickname” on the Online Service. Please note, any information you submit or post to these collaboration areas, including your display name or image, may be visible by other users of the Online Service, and such users may share with others. Therefore, please be thoughtful in what you write and understand that this Information may become public.

Cookies and Tracking
The Company may use various technologies, including cookies, tokens, tags, weblogs, web beacons, scripts, and web server logs to automatically-collect Information and may aggregate this Information from our Online Services visitors or to enable certain features of our Online Services. This Information may include demographic data, technical information about the technology (e.g. phone, computer) used to connect to the Online Services, web browser Information, your IP address, operating system (“OS”), camera use, use of screen, patterns of application usage, and browsing behavior such as pages visited, how often they are visited, and how long they are visited (“Activity Information”). We may also use third-party analytics companies to provide these services.
Activity Information is captured using various technologies and may include cookies. “Cookies” are small text files that may be placed on your computer when you visit an Online Service or click on a URL. Cookies may include “single-session cookies” which generally record information during only a single visit to a website and then are erased, and “persistent” cookies which are generally stored on a computer unless or until they are deleted or are set to expire. You may disable cookies and similar items by adjusting your browser preferences at any time; however, this may limit your ability to take advantage of all the features on our Online Services. In addition, you may also have additional means to manage the collection of Activity Information by managing the use of “flash” technologies, with the Flash management tools available at Adobe’s website.
Please note that we do not currently respond to web browser “Do Not Track” signals that provide a method to opt-out of the collection of information about online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services because, among other reasons, there is no common definition of such signals and no industry-accepted standards for how such signals should be interpreted.

Unless you affirmatively log out of your account, you may be automatically logged back in the next time you or any user of your devices visits the Online Services.
How We Protect Information
We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect the Information that you provide on our Online Services. These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the Information that is being collected, used, and stored. However, no security system is impenetrable and we cannot guarantee the security of our Online Services, nor can we guarantee the security of the Information you transmit to us over the Internet, including your use of email. We are not liable for the illegal acts of third parties such as criminal hackers.
It is your responsibility to safeguard the devices you use to access our Online Services (such as laptops, tablets and mobile devices), and to use appropriate security settings on those devices. If those devices are lost, stolen or misplaced, others may be able to access your account and your personal Information using those devices. If you log into the Online Services using a public computer or device, or the computer or device of another person, you should affirmatively log out of your account (i) prior to ending your session, or (ii) if you will be inactive on the Online Services for more than a few minutes otherwise, the next user of that computer or device may be able to access your account and the Information in your account if your session has not ended.
You agree that we are not responsible for any harm that may result from someone accessing your account or personal Information on a lost, stolen, or misplaced device or on a public computer or kiosk where you do not for any reason take the necessary steps to log out of your account prior to ending a session on such public computer or kiosk.
We offer mobile applications that enable us to communicate with you through push notifications. You may be able to turn off push notifications in your mobile phone settings. You may also be able to control preview settings in your email applications. Please note, choosing to disable certain functionality of the mobile application may impact the functionality of other areas of the mobile application.
We retain Information for as long as necessary for the purpose for which it is collected, subject to a longer period if the Information is relevant to a legal challenge.
