Third party advertisers on the AirTroductions™ Site may also place or read cookies on your browser. If you wish to disable these cookies, the "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how. However, if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to access certain areas on the AirTroductions™ Site. Information We Collect From You In order to operate the AirTroductions™ Site and to provide you with information about products or services that may be of interest to you, we may collect "personal information" (i.e. information that could be used to contact you directly (without using the AirTroductions™ Site) such as full name, postal address, phone number or email address), "financial information" (i.e. credit card numbers or passwords) or "demographic information" (i.e. information that you submit, or that we collect, that is neither personal information nor financial information; this may include, but is not limited to, zip code, postal code, hometown, gender, username, age/birth date, purchase history information, browsing history information, searching history information, registration history information, and the content of communications between you and other members over the AirTroductions™ Site), subject to the rest of this paragraph.
Demographic information is divided into two categories: 1) "non-public information", which consists of purchase history information and one-on-one communications between you and other users of the AirTroductions™ Site; and 2) "public information", which consists of all other demographic information. We ask that you do not enter personal information or financial information into your "Profile" (for example, don't use your address or passcode as your username, or include your name or address in your written responses), because if you do then it may be posted publicly on the AirTroductions™ Site, and the information will then be treated as "demographic information" that is "public information."
Consequently, the operators of these other Websites may collect different kinds of information about you, and may use and disclose that information in different ways than we would if it were collected on the AirTroductions™ Site. We encourage you to review their privacy policies and remind you that we will not be responsible for their actions. How We Use Personal Information We use your email address and your other personal information to help us match you with other users of the AirTroductions™ Site, to contact you in connection with your transactions and other activities on the AirTroductions™ Site (including, but not limited to, confirmation emails or important news that could affect your relationship with AirTroductions™.com), and to forward messages to you from other AirTroductions™.com users. These types of communications are known as "Operational Communications."
In some cases, Operational Communications may also contain commercial messages, such as banner ads and special offers. We also use personal information to send you newsletters, information, offers and other promotional materials for AirTroductions™.com's. We attempt to send you offers that are of value to you, such as discounts, exclusive offers or special event information. The AirTroductions™ Site provides you with options to decline to receive communications from AirTroductions™.com (other than those contained in Operational Communications). Some of these options may only be for a certain category of communications; others may be more general. By posting your profile on the AirTroductions™ Site, you are opting in to receive the AirTroductions™.com email. To stop receiving AirTroductions™.com by Mail, go to the "Login Info" section of your profile and deselect "I want to receive occasional updates from AirTroductions™."
