The database we use includes records collected from over 2500 contributing websites whereby visitors can engage in a variety of activities such as post
a resume /apply to a job, request information about continuing education, find out about health issues, participate in surveys, enter contests, order products
and/or services, and more.Visitors may provide us with personally identifiable information that can directly identify visitors or indicate where visitors may
be contacted during these activities. The information may include the visitor’s name, address, age, date of birth, gender, class, e-mail address, telephone
number, credit card information, hobbies, interests, and more. Sometimes visitors provide similar information about others.
From time to time our market research department, or our contractors acting on our behalf, conducts online research surveys through e-mail invitations,
pop-up surveys and online focus groups. When participating in a survey, we may ask visitors to enter personally identifiable information which we may
combine with information about them from other sources. The information from other sources may include financial, health or other identifiable information.
This information is used for research purposes. Information from the survey results may be reported to our clients. Such information collected through
market research will be used only by our service providers and contractors and will not be given or sold to any other third party without the visitor’s consent
interviews with any person under the age of 13. Some surveys may provide remuneration (payment of some kind) to participants such as a small cash fee

Except as otherwise provided, the sites that provide information about their visitors which inform the database reserve the right to use and disclose any
information that visitors provide there (regardless of whether such information is provided by visitors actively, passively, directly, or indirectly) for any purpose deemed necessary or proper. That said, it is our practice to limit the collection of information to what is necessary to administer our business and to deliver superior products and services to visitors, and to use and disclose the information collected in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it is gathered. For example, if visitors apply to a job or request information about continuing a visitor’s education, we may send the visitor’s information to the third party organization (the employer or school) which is of interest to visitor. We have no control over information that is submitted to or collected by third parties.
When we share information with third party organizations, we request to the extent we deem practical that they protect visitors’ information in a manner that

Like most commercial websites, our affiliates’ sites collect information about their visitors including how they came to the site, what browsers they use, what
pages they visit, how long they spend on the site, from which pages they left our site, and to which sites they went to when they left. Our affiliates use this

In order to better understand the people using these sites, the information visitors provide on them is supplemented with information from third party
organizations. For example, visitors may accidentally provide an invalid zip code. This information may be corrected with zip code information that is
obtained from a third party.
