What we collect
This website collects log files of visitors' activity. These log files hold non-personal information such as your IP address, which browser or operating system you're using, any plug-ins your browser has, and which pages or files you view on the site.
Geo-location data from your IP address is also collected. This is usually your country and city, although in most cases is only accurate to a state/county level. This information does not typically reveal your exact location.
We may occasionally, like many sites with interactive areas, collect potentially personally identifiable information. This data is only collected by you filling out a form in an interactive part of the website (eg. contests, contact information). This data may include your name, your username, your e-mail address or a password (which will only be stored in an encrypted format). Interactive areas of the site, such as contests, may provide additional guidance on how the data will be used.

How we share this information
The following companies are able to collect anonymous data through site: Google Analytics, Google Adsense, Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and other Amazon sites. They may use non-personal information related to your visits to this and other participating sites to target advertising based on your generic interests ("behavioral advertising"). This broad demographic information may also be made available to this site, so we can better understand the broad range of people who visit this site.
You can opt-out of behavioral advertising at the Network Advertising Initiative website. This will stop behavioral advertisement targeting by Google and other listed publishers. You may also opt-out of Google's program on their website.
