Regardless of the settings in your account preferences, we will use email to contact you if our terms and conditions change, or if there is any problem regarding your account or purchases.

Third parties

We do collect general traffic and usage information about our site, and we may need to share this information with others (such as publishers) in order to improve the service that we provide. When we share such information, it will be anonymous in that we will not provide any details which could be reasonably used to indentify any particular individual.

We do make use of Google Analytics in order to evaluate the usage of our site, and this information is useful in allowing us to:

  • determine which resources and features are heavily used, and so indicate areas that we should consider focusing future efforts upon;
  • determine which resources and features are lightly used, and so indicate areas where we should consider improving navigation and promotion;
  • measure the usage of particular resources and features so that we can provide feedback to those parties that are assisting us in making these resources available (such as publishers).

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help us analyze how users use the site; if you wish to opt-out of cookies from Google you can do so on the Google site.
