Surveys & Contests
From time to time our site requests information from users via surveys.

Our users are given the opportunity to "opt-out" of having their personal information used by third parties for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our informational email messages have an "opt-out" mechanism so users who register can change their mind and be removed form receiving future informational messages. In some instances we require users to “opt-in” for their personal information to be used.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the "unsubscribe" instructions in the email message. Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
