Company or its subsidiaries.
With your consent: In all other cases, before transferring information about you to third parties, our company undertakes to obtain your explicit consent.

When ordering services or products directly from our company, your personal information is used to process that order. We do not share this information with third parties except as necessary to fulfill such an order.
Our company may advertise on the Internet. In such cases, we provide our advertisers with aggregated and non-personally identifiable information about our Guests and Members, collected during registration and through online surveys and promotions.
In addition, in some cases, we use this aggregated and non-personally identifiable information for targeted advertising and joint ventures. For example, an advertiser or joint venture can tell you which audience to reach and provide ads that match. Later, based on the collected and grouped non-personalized information, we place or send advertisements to the target audience. Our company does not disclose personal information about its Guests and Members to such advertisers or joint ventures. Information on how to opt-out of our company’s online advertising is included directly in the advertising materials.
Answers to electronic inquiries
When Guests or Members send email inquiries to our company, the email address from which the request originated is used to respond to them. Our company does not use return addresses for any other purpose or share them with any third parties.
Voluntary customer surveys
We periodically conduct both commercial and private user surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys as they provide us with important information to improve our various products and services and how we deliver them. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential even when surveyed by a third party. Participation in our customer surveys is optional, and information about how to opt-out of a survey is included in survey messages.
We may take the information collected from individuals who participate in our customer surveys and merge (group) with responses from our other customers to create broader and more aggregated responses to survey questions (such as gender, age, location, hobbies, education, place of jobs, industry sector, and other demographic information). The aggregated information is then used to improve the quality of services provided to you and develop new services and products. Such aggregated and non-personally identifiable information may be shared with third parties.
