"Personally Identifiable Information"
This refers to any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains, including, but not limited to, name, address, IP address, phone number, fax number, email address, financial profiles, social security number, and credit card information. Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (that is, without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.
What Personally Identifiable Information is collected?
We may collect basic user profile information from all of our Visitors, along with personal information they choose to provide, e-mail addresses and e-mail content sent to us. We may collect the following additional information from our Authorized Customers: the names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of Authorized Customers, the nature and size of the business, and any other personal information they choose to disclose. 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. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
What organizations are collecting the information?
In addition to our direct collection of information, our third party service vendors (such as credit card companies, banks, payment gateways, e-mail service providers, affiliate networks) who may provide such services as credit, content delivery or affiliate marketing services may collect this information from our Visitors and Authorized Customers. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they use personal information provided to them from Visitors and Authorized Customers. Some of these third parties may be intermediaries that act solely as links in the distribution chain, and do not store, retain, or use the information given to them.
How does the Site use Personally Identifiable Information?
We use Personally Identifiable Information to customize the Site, to make appropriate service offerings, and to fulfill buying and selling requests on the Site. We may email Visitors and Authorized Customers about research or purchase and selling opportunities on the Site or information related to the subject matter of the Site. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to contact Visitors and Authorized Customers in response to specific inquiries, or to provide requested information.
With whom may the information may be shared?
Personally Identifiable Information about Authorized Customers may be shared with other Authorized Customers who wish to evaluate potential transactions with other Authorized Customers. We may share aggregated information about our Visitors, including the demographics of our Visitors and Authorized Customers, with our affiliated agencies, third party vendors and/or any future ownership parties to whom either partial or full ownership of X & Y Communications is transferred. We also offer the opportunity to "opt out" of receiving information or being contacted by us or by any agency acting on our behalf.

Please note that your information will be stored and processed on our computers in the United States. The laws on holding personal data in the United States may be less stringent than the laws of your Country of residence or citizenship. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
What choices are available to Visitors regarding collection, use and distribution of the information?

What are cookies?
Are cookies used on the Site?
What is retargeting?
The Site uses dynamic ad retargeting strategies. The main goal of retargeting ads is to re-engage site visitors after they have left the site. Dynamic retargeting ads are generated based on the actual products or offers viewed on the advertiserís site. For example if youíve visited a retailerís website and viewed a specific product, you might be presented a banner ad containing that product. Rather than showing the same ad to every visitor, the retargeting platform will select the most relevant ad copy based on the userís activity on the site. When an advertiser places our tag on a website, the tag embeds a third party cookie on the browser of users visiting the site. It is important to note that the cookie itself does not contain any personal identifying information. Retargeting ads intelligently match the right offering to each visitor based on his previous activities on the site.
How can I remove myself from being retargeted?
Users that donít want to see personalized ads should simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
Surveys and contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information and demographic information. Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site, as well as assessing and attempting to meet the needs of users.
Minor children are not eligible to use our services unsupervised and we ask that children (under the age of 18) do not submit any personal information to us. If you are a minor, you can use this service only in conjunction with permission and guidance from your parents or guardians.

How can Visitors correct any inaccuracies in Personally Identifiable Information?
Visitors and Authorized Customers may contact us to update Personally Identifiable Information about them or to correct any inaccuracies by emailing us at email@example.com

We provide Visitors and Authorized Customers with a mechanism to delete/deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site's database by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor's entry without retaining some residual information. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.
