What Information Do We Collect?

The goal of the website is to be your favorite military destination on the Internet by providing you with the information, services and product offerings that are most relevant to you. To achieve this goal we collect two types of information from you when you visit our site: personally identifiable information you voluntarily choose to disclose, and "aggregate information" about your use of our site that is automatically collected when you visit the website.

1. Personal Information You Choose to Provide

Personally identifiable information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are. Personal information is collected when you voluntarily choose to become a member of the website community. As a member, you are asked to provide certain basic information such as your name, current email address, and service affiliation. You may also provide additional personal information at your option. Further, if you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.

How Do We Use The Personal Information That You Provide To Us?

Broadly speaking, your personal information is used to help us customize the content and layout of our website so that we may provide you with a smooth and efficient visit. We also use personal information for the purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service, and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website, new services, and special offers we think you will find valuable.

2. Aggregate Information

Aggregate information refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include referral data (the websites you visited just before and just after our website), the pages viewed, time spent at our website, browser and platform type (e.g., a Netscape browser on a Macintosh platform), and IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web. When you request a page from one of our sites, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers and partners, and for purposes of system administration. This allows these parties to advertise more effectively, and allows you to receive advertisements that are more relevant.

3. Cookies

The website, along with thousands of other websites, uses standard technologies, such as "cookies" and web server logs, to enhance your web viewing experience. Cookies and web server logs automatically track certain information about you that is based upon your activity on our site. A cookie is a small piece of data transferred from a website to the hard drive of your computer so that the website may track your activities on the site. Web server logs allow us to count how many people visit our website and also to evaluate our site's visitor capacity.

Each time you access our site, our server may deliver certain customized information to you based on the data stored in your cookies. Cookies allow us to determine which areas and features of our site are most popular by measuring user activity. Cookies let sites and advertisers "remember" users across pages of a site and across multiple visits to a site. This allows e-commerce and Internet advertising to: personalize features such as targeted news stories, remember user names and passwords for future visits, control ad frequency or the number of times a user sees a given ad and deliver advertisements targeted to a user's interests. Your computer may occasionally receive cookies from our advertisers., Inc. does not control these cookies, and they are not subject to our Privacy Policy. You can disable cookies, but access to certain parts of our website may no longer be available to you. Cookies can be disabled. The Help portion of the tool bar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or how to disable cookies altogether.

Conversely, the Co-Brand Service Provider may provide, Inc. with personal information about you.

Sharing Information With Affiliated Businesses, Strategic Partners, Subsidiaries, Advertisers, And Other Third Parties

We may enter into strategic marketing alliances with third parties, such as strategic partners and subsidiaries, who may be given access to personal information (including your name, address, and email) for the purpose of providing you with information about products and services that may be of interest to you.
