• To create sets of business and personal attributes – categories of information that are grouped together based on common interests, preferences, and non-personal geo-demographic information (“Profiles”). These Profiles may be associated with a business or person. Our customers may use these Profiles to learn more about their own customers and improve their own databases.

In addition, we may provide anonymous information (i.e., information that does not identify in-dividual consumers or Principals) in the form of aggregate or demographic data to our clients or service providers. We may also generate and use anonymous information to develop, enhance or validate our products, processes or services. Personal information may be used to generate anonymous information and, when required, to research, validate and test the use of such information in processes, products, services and enhancements.

We will not use personal information or sensitive personal information for purposes other than to provide you with our products and/or services, or as otherwise expressly permitted by applicable law. We will not use your sensitive personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising.

We will not use personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you with notice and/or updating this Privacy Policy.


To secure your information, we have put in place commercially suitable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect on our Site.

As a result, personal information may be subject to local laws, which may permit local law enforcement, government or national security authorities to have access to personal information in certain circumstances.
