typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address),

submission by you to us of any story, artwork, photograph or other such
material this information and/or material may be used to select a winner
and/or tabulate survey results. In addition, we may use any such submission
pursuant to the relevant portion of our Terms of Service to display to other

with information from our advertisers or partners.

records and tracks your IP address, and browser type for purposes of
security, maintaining the web site and ensuring the best possible user

relevant services and advertisements to hosting customers. We do not link
aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.
