How Do We Use the Information We Collect?

Tracking Information: We use Tracking Information to administer the Service and to understand how well our Service is working, to store your user preferences and customize the Service for you, and to develop aggregate, statistical information on usage of the Services.

If you wish to opt out of promotional emails, you may do so by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the email, or by editing your account settings as described below.
