1. Types of Information Collected
In order to better provide you with our numerous services, we collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our Site. Personally Identifiable Information (?PII?): This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on this website, such as registering and joining a group, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. We may ask, however, that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, e-mail address, and/or other personally identifying information. We may also collect information from you at other points on Our Site that state that such information is being collected. However, this policy is subject to change without notice and We encourage you to periodically check Our Policy statement. Non-Personally Identifiable Information (?Non-PII?): This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We may gather certain general information about you based upon where and how you visit Our Site in several ways. This information may be compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Web site's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and/or your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (?Web?). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet. We only use your PII to provide Our services to you. We DO NOT share your PII with anyone else. We may use PII to deliver information to you and to contact you regarding administrative notices. We may also use PII to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, and enforce Our agreements with you. We will also use Non-PII to enhance the smooth operation of Our Site, improve Our marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze Site use, improve Our service offerings, and customize Our Site?s content, layout, and services. We DO NOT share your Non-PII with anyone.

2. Online Services
When you register with Grouplings? online services, we collect your name, email address, city, state, and postal code, and other information necessary to service your account. Signing up for online services is also opting in for e-mail announcements or alerts, we will use your email address to send you updates and alerts on Grouplings? online services, or updates. This helps us keep you informed of our online services and better serve you. You will not receive any electronic or other correspondence from third parties.

3. Compelled Disclosure
If we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with notice (unless we are prohibited) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address, or by postal mail if you have entered a postal address. We will independently object to overly broad requests for access to information about users of our site. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information to law enforcement agencies or a court of competent jurisdiction.

4. Updating and Correcting Information
We believe you should have the ability to access and edit the PII that you have provided to Us. You may change any of your PII in your account by writing Us at:

11509 Stonewood Lane
Rockville, Maryland 20852
Phone: _______________
Fax: _________________
Please include your name, address, and/or e-mail address when you contact Us. We encourage you to promptly update your PII if it ever changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed. While we will comply to the best of our ability, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without some residual information remaining because of backups.

5. Security of Information
At Our Site, you can be assured that your PII is secure, consistent with current industry standards. The importance of security for all PII associated with Our users is of utmost concern to Us. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 256-bit encryption protocol, which prevents unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted. In order to most efficiently serve you, credit card transactions are directly handled by established third-party banking and processing agents who receive the information needed to verify and authorize your credit card or other payment information. Grouplings does not currently receive any of your credit card information, however, this policy is subject to change. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while We conscientiously strive to protect your PII, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet that are beyond Our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and Us through this Site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) it is possible that any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with while in transit by a third party.

6. Privacy Policies of Third-Party Sites
As a public service, We may maintain links to other Web sites. Except as otherwise discussed in this Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information We collect from you. Other sites accessible through Our Site have their own privacy policies and data collection, use, and disclosure practices. For more information on this topic, please consult each site?s privacy policy. You acknowledge and agree that We are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties.

7. Cookies
When you use Our Site, We will store cookies on your computer in order to authorize access to Our private content and to facilitate and customize your use of Our Site.
