We use the PII we collect from and about users for the following purposes:
To allow third party service providers to assist us in providing and managing the Site and the Services. The PII you disclose on the Site and the Services may be shared with third party service providers such as contractors, agents or sponsors, who help us to administer the Site or the Services, for example: developing or supporting products and features; processing payments; providing advertising, conducting email marketing on our behalf; processing data or statistics; or assisting with the administration, judging and prize fulfillment aspects of contests, promotions and sweepstakes. Your PII will only be shared with administrators, business partners, or advertisers for a particular purpose and they will not be permitted to use it for any unauthorized purpose. Should you respond to a particular offer from our business partners or advertisers, we may also use your PII to provide a report to our advertisers or business partners that tells them who responded to a particular offer. Further, if you accept an offer contained in, for example, an email, we may provide the advertiser or business partner with the PII necessary to fulfill that offer to you.

Opt-ins can be selected when you register and/or complete your communication preferences if or when those preferences are offered, or otherwise. If you do not want to receive such promotional information from third parties do not opt-in to receive them. You can change your communication preferences if and when offered, and remove yourself from our email lists at any time from clicking on unsubscribe at the bottom of the email. Please also note that even if you do not opt-in or have opted-out of receiving promotional emails from us or third parties, we may still use your PII to communicate with you for other purposes, such as notifying you in connection with the Site or Service features, if you are a winner in a sweepstakes or contest or if you are participating in other activities where we believe communication is necessary.
