The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include:
Some features of our Website may use local stored objects (or flash cookies) to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from, and on our Website. Flash cookies are not managed by the same browser settings as are used for browser cookies. For information about managing your privacy and security settings for flash cookies, see Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information.
Pages of our Website (and our emails) may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also called clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs), which enable us, for example, to count users who have visited a page (or opened an email) and provide other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of website content and verifying system and server integrity).
We do not collect personal information automatically, but we may tie this information to personal information about you that we collect from other sources or to personal information you provide to us.
We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including Personal Data:
With your consent, we may also use your Personal Information to contact you about goods and services that may be of interest to you.

For more information, see Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information.
We do not share, sell, or otherwise disclose your Personal Data for purposes other than those outlined in this Privacy Notice. However, we may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
We do not control the collection and use of your information collected by third parties described above in Disclosure of Your Information. When possible, these organizations are under contractual obligations to use this data only for providing the services to us and to maintain this information under strict confidentiality. These third parties may, however, aggregate the information they collect with information from their other customers for their own purposes.
In addition, we strive to provide you with choices regarding the Personal Data you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with control over your Personal Data:

However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can learn more about interest-based advertisements and your opt-out rights and options from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) on its website (www.networkadvertising.org) and from members of the Digital Advertising Alliance on its website (www.aboutads.info).
You can review and change your Personal Data, or request access to, correct, or delete Personal Data that you have provided to us, by sending an email to email@example.com.

We also may use automated data collection technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking). We do not track you over time or across third-party websites or other online services for any purpose. Some web browsers permit you to broadcast a signal to websites and online services indicating a preference that they “do not track” your online activities. At this time, we do not honor such signals, and we do not modify what information we collect or how we use that information based upon whether such a signal is broadcasted to or received by us. Our Website incorporates technology designed to honor such signals and some similar mechanisms that maybe sent by your browser or device, and we may limit the information be collect and how we use that information based upon whether such a signal is transmitted by your browser or device and received by us.
We have implemented measures designed to secure your Personal Data from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Data transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of Personal Data is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures deployed on the Website.
In order to provide our Website, products, and services to you, we may send and store your Personal Data outside of the country where you reside or are located, including to countries that may not or do not provide an equivalent level of protection for your Personal Data. Your Personal Data maybe processed and stored in the United States, and federal, state, and local governments, courts, or law enforcement or regulatory agencies in the United States may be able to obtain disclosure of your information through the laws of the United States. By using our Website, you represent that you have read and understood the above and hereby consent to the storage and processing of Personal Data outside the country where you reside or are located, including in the United States.
We will transfer your Personal Data to another country only if it is required or permitted under applicable data-protection law and only if appropriate safeguards are in place to protect your Personal Data. To ensure that your Personal Data is treated in accordance with this Privacy Notice when we transfer it to a third party, SEARCH uses Data Protection Agreements between SEARCH and all other recipients of your Personal Data.
We may change this Privacy Notice at any time. It is our policy to post any changes we make to our Privacy Notice on this page. If we make material changes to how we treat our users’ Personal Data, we will notify you through a notice on the Website’s home page. The date this Privacy Notice was last revised is identified at the top of the page.

ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT, OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE, AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR APPLICATIONS, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association(“AAA”) in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”)then in effect, except as modified by this Section 22 (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting us at our Notice address listed below.). You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms, the Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the agreement is void, voidable, or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If you seek arbitration or elect to file a small-claim court action, you must first send Company, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim (a “Notice”) to our General Counsel in accordance with the Notice section below. If Company initiates the arbitration, it will send such Notice to you in accordance with the Notice section below. A Notice, whether sent by you or Company, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) describe the specific relief sought (the “Demand”). If you and Company do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. The arbitration or small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy.
You may download or copy Notice and a form to initiate arbitration athttps://www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Company receives the notice at the address listed below that you have commenced arbitration, Company will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US $10,000, in which event you will be responsible for the filing fees.
If your claim is for US $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Company’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if Company did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then Company will pay you the amount of the award or US $1,000, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. IN ANY DISPUTE, NEITHER YOU NOR COMPANY WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS ACLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER, OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver, and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.
