considered confidential such as your name, date of birth, mail or email address,
telephone number, friends' name or email address if you choose to refer them to
us, general geographic information (e.g., your city or state), account

HOW DO WE USE INFORMATION?
Our primary purpose in collecting information about you is to provide you with
products, services, information, and advertisements that match your interests

respond to your inquiries, administer your account, send marketing, assess your
needs and interests in order to better tailor offers and/or advertising, improve
our website and marketing, conduct research, display content based upon your
interests, allow you to search information on our site, and/or list you in our
search and directory services.

you enter, and how you interact with advertising. Among other things, we use the
following technologies to automatically collect information:

"Telephone Caller ID" refers to information automatically transmitted about
you when you call someone. If you call a telephone number that we have
