Certain areas of the Site may request you to supply us with personal information.

We will not share your personal information with third parties, except for our business partners or other entities performing a service or activity that you have requested from the Site (such as an online order).
The Company may disclose information you have provided to us if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process served on the Company; or (2) protect and defend the rights or property of the Company.
If we gather demographic information from you (for example, your age, education level or household income), we will not share that information in a manner that identifies you as an individual with any other entity, unless we let you know that at the time of collection. When we share demographic information with third parties, we will give them aggregate information only.
