When you visit the IPO Website or App, you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose, and information that we automatically collect as you browse the IPO Website or engage with the App.
Information You Voluntarily Submit. We collect and store any information you enter on an IPO Website and/or App or provide to us in offline contacts we have with you. Information is collected from visitors to an IPO Website or App in the following areas:
- REGISTRATION - If you register for the Service, we will ask you to provide personal information such as your name, address, email and telephone number as well as billing information (including credit card information) in order to establish your Account. You may, however, visit an IPO Website or App without registering but will have limited access to the Site or App, as applicable.
- E-MAIL - On several screens of the IPO Website and App, you also have an opportunity to communicate with us by e-mail. You may also choose to provide your e-mail address to receive communications from us or third parties.
Information Collected and Stored Automatically.
When you browse the IPO Website or App, you and your Web browser may also transmit information that we automatically collect. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer), the Web pages you visit and the time of your visit and other click-stream data. This information may be combined with other personal information you have provided. The only other type of information automatically provided to us is the type of computer, operating system and browser you are using. This information is provided by your browser, which we use to improve the performance of the IPO Website and App.
We may also place small data files, called "cookies", in the browser file of your computer's hard drive. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with the IPO Website. We use the cookies to record IPO Website statistics. Most browsers automatically accept the cookies, but you usually can change your browser setting to prevent the acceptance of cookies. The IPO Website pages may not function properly if you choose not to accept cookies.HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use your personal information to open your Account communicate with you if and when necessary in connection with your use of the Service, to respond to your questions or to send you material and information you request. We may use your information to:
- Personalize your site experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product information in which you are most interested.
- Consider your suggestions
- Possibly respond directly to you for clarification
- Process your request for materials if you make one
- Try to and/or answer your questions if you ask them
- Register you for an event, if you request it
We may also use your IPO Website information in order to help diagnose problems with the IPO Website. We may use all information we collect to analyze statistical use patterns and demographic data (basically, where our visitors come from and what demographic characteristics they have) and to improve our IPO Website to better serve our customers. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our IPO Website. Your IP address is used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information. We may also prepare and keep statistical records and other data about you and other users of our site, but we do that in a way that does not identify you or any other user personally. We may hire third parties to help us collect and analyze such data and we may share such statistical data with third parties. Again, such statistical data will not specifically identify you or any other user. We use this information to help us make our IPO Website more useful to visitors - to learn about the number of visitors to our IPO Website, what part of the IPO Website they are interested in, how long they use the IPO Website and the types of technology our visitors use.DISCLOSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO OTHERS
Except in the limited circumstances stated in this paragraph, we do not sell, rent, license, trade or otherwise disclose the personal information of IPO Website or App visitors to unaffiliated third parties. We may disclose your information to service providers who assist us in operating the IPO Website or App or conducting our business. We may also share such information among our subsidiaries and affiliates as necessary to provide you with the information and services you request or in which you may otherwise be interested. We may disclose information about you if and when we believe it is necessary to comply with any law, rule, court order, subpoena or warrant, or to enforce our legal rights or the rules of the IPO Website or App, or to protect our business, property and operations, or in connection with a sale, acquisition, merger or other business combination of our business with a third party. We may also disclose non-personally identifiable visitor information to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.
Some areas of the IPO Website or App may allow you to conduct e-commerce transactions. In connection with these transactions, we collect data necessary to complete the transaction that is furnished by you. This information may be furnished to a third party in order to facilitate the transaction.LINKS TO OTHER SITES

Arbitration and Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes
This Section on Arbitration sets forth the circumstances and procedures under which Claims (defined below) that arise between you and us will be resolved through binding arbitration. This means that neither you nor we will have the right to litigate that Claim in court or have a jury trial on that Claim. Other rights that you would have in court also may not be available or may be limited in arbitration, including your right to appeal and your ability to participate in a class action. Nothing in this provision precludes you from filing and pursuing your individual Claim in a small claims court in your state or municipality, so long as that Claim is pending only in that court.a. Definitions.
As used in this Section on Arbitration, the term "Claim" shall mean and include any claim, Dispute or controversy of every kind and nature, whether based in law or equity, between you and us arising from or relating to this Agreement, as well as any related or prior agreement that you may have had with us or the relationships resulting from any of the above agreements ("Agreements"), including the validity, enforceability or scope of this Section or the Agreements. "Claim" also includes claims by or against any third party using or providing any product, service or benefit in connection with the Website, App or Service (including, but not limited to, third parties who use, provide or participate in programs, products or services accessed through the Service or the Site or App and all of their agents, employees, directors and representatives) if and only if, such third party is named as a co-party with you or us (or files a Claim with or against you or us) in connection with a Claim asserted by you or us against the other. As used in this Section "you" and "us" also includes any corporate parent, or wholly or majority owned subsidiaries, affiliates, any licensees, predecessors, successors, assigns, any purchaser of any Accounts, all agents, employees, directors and representatives of any of the foregoing, and any third party using or providing any product, service or benefit in connection with an Account, the Site, the App and/or the Service or Service Content.b. Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding/Selection of Administrator.
Any Claim shall be resolved, upon the election by you or us, by arbitration pursuant to this Section and the code of procedures of the national arbitration organization to which the Claim is referred in effect at the time the Claim is filed (the "Code"), except to the extent the Code conflicts with this Agreement. Claims shall be referred to either JAMS ("JAMS") or the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as selected by the party electing to use arbitration. If a selection by us of either of these organizations is unacceptable to you, you shall have the right within thirty (30) days after you receive notice of our election to select the other organization listed to serve as arbitration administrator. For a copy of the procedures, to file a Claim or for other information about these organizations, contact JAMS at 1920 Main Street, Suite 300, Irvine, CA 92614; www.jamsadr.com, and/or AAA at 335 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10017, www.adr.org. In addition to the arbitration organizations listed above, Claims may be referred to any other arbitration organization that is mutually agreed upon in writing by you and us, or to an arbitration organization or arbitrator(s) appointed pursuant to section 5 of the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sections 1-16, provided that any such arbitration organization and arbitrator(s) will enforce the terms of the Restrictions on Arbitration provision set forth below.c. Class Action Waiver and Other Restrictions.
Arbitration shall proceed solely on an individual basis without the right for any Claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of others. The arbitrator's authority to resolve and make written awards is limited to Claims between you and us alone. Claims may not be joined or consolidated unless agreed to in writing by all parties. No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any Dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement (including the "Continuation" provision below), and without waiving either party's right of appeal, if any portion of this "Class Action Waiver and Other Restrictions" provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, then the entire Arbitration Section (other than this sentence) shall not apply.d. Arbitration Procedures
This Section is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1-16, as it may be amended ("FAA"), and the applicable Code. The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. Federal or state rules of civil procedure or evidence shall not apply. Written requests to expand the scope of discovery rest within the arbitrator's sole discretion and shall be determined pursuant to the applicable Code. The arbitrator shall take reasonable steps to preserve the privacy of individuals, and of business matters. Judgment upon the written arbitral award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Subject to the right of appeal under the FAA, the arbitrator's written decision will be final and binding unless you or we take an appeal from the award by making a dated, written request to the arbitration organization within thirty (30) days from the date of entry of the written arbitral award. A three-arbitrator panel administered by the same arbitration organization shall consider anew any aspect of the award objected to by the appellant, conduct an arbitration pursuant to its Code and issue its decision within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the date of the appellant's written notice. The panel's majority vote decision shall be final and binding.e. Location of Arbitration/Payment of Fees.
The arbitration shall take place in the federal judicial district of New York. Irrespective of who prevails in arbitration, you will only be responsible for paying your share, if any, of the arbitration fees required by the applicable Code, which amount shall not exceed the filing fees you would have incurred if the Claim had been brought in the appropriate state or federal court closest to your residence. We will pay the remainder of any arbitration fees. At your written request, we will consider in good faith making a temporary advance of all or part of your share of the arbitration fees. Waivers also may be available from the JAMS or AAA.f. Continuation
This Section shall survive termination of this Agreement, your Account, Sub-Account or the relationship between you and us concerning your Account or Sub-Account, any permitted transfer, sale, or assignment of your Account or Sub-Account, or any amounts owed on your Account or Sub-Account, to any other person or entity as well as voluntary payment in full of any shortages, any debt collection proceeding by or between you and us, and any bankruptcy by you or us. If any portion of this provision, except the "Class Action Waiver and Other Restrictions" provision above, is deemed invalid or unenforceable for any reason, it shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Arbitration Provision, this Agreement or any predecessor agreement you may have had with us, each of which shall be enforceable regardless of such invalidity.
