Our Services and Site are not directed to children and children are not eligible to use our Services. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 13 years of age, and no part of our Site or Services is designed to attract people under 13 years of age. If we later learn that a user is under 13 years of age, we will take steps to remove that user's Personal Information from our databases and to prevent the user from utilizing the Site and Services.
In general, the Personal Information we gather enables us to provide the Site and Services and helps us learn more about the use of the Site and Services. The Personal Information you provide to us will depend on how you use the Services. For certain Services (including purchasing a Case), you have to register through the Site and create an “Account” by providing your name, email address, a password, and any other required information. We will also need to collect, and you will provide, information necessary to process the purchase, including your name, credit card information, and billing information, though some of this information may go directly to our payment provider.
If you are a Student and provide a Response, we will only consider it Personal Information if we associate or link the Response with other Personal Information. Please do not include personally identifiable information in the body of your Response.
We also collect other types of Personal Information that you provide to us voluntarily as you use the Site or if you contact us via e-mail regarding the Services.
We collect the following types of Anonymous Information:
Information Collected by Our Servers . To make our Site and Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.
Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs.
Disclosure – Third Party Cookies
We will use your Personal Information to:
Administer your Account;
Process your payments;
Provide you with the Services and customer support;
Tailor the features, performance and support of the Services to you (including personalized recommendations);
Market our products and services (and those of third parties) to you that we believe may be of interest to you;
Respond to your requests, resolve disputes and/or troubleshoot problems;
Improve the quality of the Site and the Services (including by analyzing your usage); and

We may also use your Personal Information to create Anonymous Information records by excluding information that makes the information personally identifiable to you.
We will communicate with you primarily in the form of emails. You can manage the frequency and/or opt out of receiving these communications by changing your settings on the Site and/or clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email. Please note that even if you unsubscribe or opt-out, we may still send you Site and Services related communications (e.g., emails related to your account or the Site).
We disclose certain Personal Information:
Third Parties Designated by You . When you use the Site and Services, the Personal Information you provide will be shared with the third parties that you authorize to receive such information. For example:
When you, as a Student, purchase a Case for use with a specific Instructor, you authorize us to disclose your name to that Instructor.
If you provide a Response, we may provide it to a Company – and, with your authorization, we may include your name and contact information (and any other Personal Information so authorized by you). Once shared, that information can be collected and used by that Company, and we cannot control what it may do with that information. Please be careful about the information in any Response.
As an Instructor, you authorize us to share your name and affiliated institution and biography with Students on our Site.
Third Party Service Providers . We may share your Personal Information with our third party service providers that help us provide services that we offer you, including processing payments.
We reserve the right to disclose Anonymous Information publicly without restriction.
