HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, we provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.
Where required under applicable law, we only process your Personal Information on the basis of a lawful justification for processing. In those cases, the processing of your Personal Information will be justified on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract, or as necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests of providing for sale various products to users of the Site and operating, protecting and improving our business.
We may keep your Personal Information for as long as is necessary for our business purposes, and in particular to protect ourselves in the event of a legal claim. After this period, your data will be deleted or, in some instances, anonymized.
We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
Your data will in part also be processed in countries outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA), which may have a lower data protection level than European countries. In such cases, we will ensure that a sufficient level of protection is provided for your data, e.g., by concluding specific agreements with our contractual partners (copy available on request), or we will ask for your explicit consent to such processing.
Protecting your personal information
We understand the utmost importance of protecting the Personal Information that you share with us. As such, we practice a combination of technical, physical and administrative security controls that are designed to safeguard your information against unauthorized use. Your Personal Information will only be used for business purposes and will only be accessible by a limited number of our employees and third party vendors servicing our computer and web services.
At the same time, no data or transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information to the best of our ability, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of information you transmit to our Site.

You can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.
As described above, we use your Personal Information to provide you with targeted advertisements or marketing communications we believe may be of interest to you. For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiatives (NAI) educational page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/how-does-it-work.
