Collection of Information; Scope of this Policy. We may require you to submit certain information (including personal information such as contact information, or payment card information): to allow you to post Events, postings, comments, statements, opinions, or other content, information, or material; to provide you an Account; to allow you to post your opinions or questions in our discussion forums or similar services; to allow you to participate in various other activities; or for such other reasons as may be described on the Q Service at the time such information is collected. To the extent such information is either (a) personally identifiable or (b) personal financial information, this Policy covers our collection, treatment, and dissemination of such information.
This Policy does not cover: (a) any information which is not personally identifiable or financial (such as anonymized or aggregated demographic information); (b) any Events, postings, comments, statements, opinions, or other content, information, or material you submit to be posted on or displayed for others to see on the Q Service (including any information submitted to discussion forums or other activities on the Q Service); or (c) any ideas, suggestions, or comments you may submit about the Q Service or our products or services, which we may use for any purposes in our sole discretion.
From time-to-time we may request information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. In addition to any use of information described in this Policy, information collected during surveys and contests will be used for the purposes specified on the forms on which it is collected.
Treatment of Personal or Financial Information. Except as described in this Policy, we will hold all of your personally identifiable or financial information private. We may use such information to: validate your identity, and regulate access to the Q Service, your Account, and other activities and services; personalize your experience with the Q Service, your Account, and other activities and services; collect and process payments; provide information pertaining to our products or services which may be of interest to you, on an opt-out basis; create aggregate and anonymous demographic or other information which we may use for any purpose once decoupled from your personal or financial information (such as to assist our advertisers in choosing ad space or tracking campaigns).
We will never sell or rent your name or personal information to any third party without your express permission. We never sell or rent our mailing list.
We may provide your information, including personal or financial information, to our vendors who provide background services on the Q Service, such as payment processing, technical support, order fulfillment, and other subcontracted services. We always use reasonable efforts to require such third parties to legally agree to use such information only for the purpose for which it was provided and to otherwise abide by the protections of this Policy.
Handling of your Information; Security. We have put in place reasonable security measures to protect your information and restrict access to authorized employees. Personal information is stored in a database with customary security measures. Payment card information submitted for payment purposes is stored and transmitted in a payment card industry (PCI) compliant manner. We use reasonable measures to protect against hacking and other malicious activity, although we do not and cannot guaranty that no security breach will ever occur.
Please do not submit personal, financial, or health information to features of the Q Service not intended for such information. Such information should never be submitted to be displayed with Event content, or to discussion forums or similar public activities (unless you want it publicly displayed) and we cannot promise PCI or HIPAA (health related information) compliant storage of such information except as expressly described above (relating to storage and transmission of payment information).

We encourage parents and guardians to monitor and supervise all Internet usage by children. No information should be submitted to, or posted at, the Q Service by visitors under 18 years of age without the consent of a parent or guardian.
