Without limiting the foregoing, we may share the information we have collected about you, including personal information, as disclosed at the time you provide your information and in the following circumstances:

Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf. We use third parties to host the Website and its contents (including our large selection of photos and educational videos), design and operate the Website features, and perform administrative, analytics, payment processing, advertising, and communications services. Services these parties provide include processing your payments made through the Website, enabling us to send you email newsletters and marketing materials, enabling real-time chat features, and providing information to us about the use of the Website and viewing of our content. We may disclose your personal information to these companies so they can carry out these business purposes on our behalf. 

Currently, we use the services listed below for analytics and ad-serving. Note that they may set and access their own cookies and web beacons on your device, and they may have access to related usage information. We provide links where you can access additional information on their practices. 

Google LLC Services

·  Google Analytics[A4] . Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Website. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. We use Google Analytics with the add-on “anonymizeIP()” so that the IP addresses later transmitted to Google are shortened and modified in advance on European servers to prevent any direct references to particular persons. You may be able to prohibit Google from collecting and analyzing the cookie-generated data about your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here

·  Google Adwords.  Google AdWords is an ad-serving service offered by Google that uses technologies—such as cookies—to display ads (including our ads) based on your visits to the Website. So you may see our ads displayed on other websites you visit, or in your Google search results. Like Google Analytics, Google may share information obtained through its AdWords service with other Google services.

You may opt-out of certain Google service features, such as through your device advertising settings, or by following the instructions provided by Google in its Privacy Policy:

For more information on the privacy practices of Google more generally, visit the Google Privacy Terms web page:

Facebook Inc. Services

·  The Website utilizes Facebook's conversion tracking pixel. This pixel (like cookies, the pixel is a small piece of code) allows us to follow the actions of users after they are redirected to the Website after clicking on a Facebook advertisement. We are thus able to record the efficacy of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes. We cannot see the personal data of any individual user, but the collected data are saved and processed by Facebook – and Facebook is able to connect the data with your Facebook account and use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook's Data Policy. See Facebook conversion tracking also allows Facebook and its partners to show you advertisements on and outside Facebook. In addition, a cookie will be saved onto your computer for these purposes.

For more information on how targeted advertising works generally, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s educational page at

Promotions. We may offer promotions through the Website that may require registration. By participating in a promotion, you agree to the terms, conditions and/or official rules that govern that promotion, including terms related to the disclosure of your personal information.

Administrative and Legal Reasons. We may also disclose personal information to enforce or apply our Terms of Service (A) TERMS OF SERVICE FOR LIVE AND (B) TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR GOODS, or if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us; and (b) protect and defend our rights or property, the Website, its users, or the public.

Business Transfer. We reserve the right to disclose and transfer all information related to the Website, including, without limitation, your personal information and usage information: (y) to a subsequent owner, co-owner, or operator of the Website or applicable database; or (z) in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, reorganization, divestiture, restructuring, the sale of substantially all of our equity interests and/or assets, or other corporate  change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process or during any bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding.

Nor does this Privacy Policy apply to information we collect by other means (including offline) or from sources other than through the Website.

8.     Security

Personal information is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. Only those of our employees and agents who need access to your personal information to do their jobs are allowed access, each having signed confidentiality agreements or otherwise subject to a duty of confidentiality. In some instances, personal information is encrypted during storage and transmission, and our website uses the https protocol.

While we make reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or information we transmit to you from the Website, and you assume all related risks.

We regularly review the information that we collect and store. We retain your personal information until you request that we delete it. In certain cases, we may be required to continue to retain your data to comply with applicable law or in connection with a legal claim.

For personal information subject to European Union or United Kingdom law: we only retain your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

9.     Lawful Bases and Other Information

·  Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

·  Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request. If you want us to delete all of your personal information, we will also need to delete your account.

·  Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

·  Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:

o   If you want us to establish the data's accuracy.

o   Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.

o   Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

o   You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

·  Request the transfer of your personal information to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal information in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

·  Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

·  Make a Complaint at any time to your data protection regulator. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach your data protection regulator so please contact us in the first instance.

Where you exercise a right under European Union or United Kingdom data protection law:

·  You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

·  We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

Depending on where you live, you may also have other data protection rights.
