  1. The purpose for collecting information

You may be required to register or otherwise voluntarily provide Personal Information in order to access some specific features of the Site or enter a contest or to be provided with a service that you have requested. You may choose not to provide the Personal Information, but this may lead to decreased functionality of the Site for you and will prevent us from providing you with certain services.

This information enables Fusion Stone to make general improvements to the Site, ensures that content standards of certain sections are upheld, enables us to contact prize winners and better serve your specific interests. Fusion Stone may collect Aggregated Information through the use of cookies or by other means. We use this information to assess general usage patterns, including identifying repeat users, collecting demographic information, administering and making improvements to the Site to tailor our visitors’ experiences and to display content according to a visitor’s preferences. Subject to agreements with third parties, Fusion Stone may match Aggregated Information with parameters established by third parties, without releasing Personal Information or information that may specifically identify our users. This may be done in order to describe the Site or services to trading partners, advertisers or other third parties by disclosing certain general statistics such as the percentage of our users who are men, women, professionals, etc. Fusion Stone, our business partners and such other third party as we may designate reserve the right to use, maintain, update, disclose and/or sell Aggregate Information to third parties.
