We may also supplement the information we collect with information from other sources, such as Google Analytics and Woopra, to assist us in evaluating and improving our Digital Tools and services to determine your preferences so that we can tailor our Digital Tools and services to your needs, and/or to study behavioral questions in general.
Technologies such as: cookies, beacons, tags and scripts are used by SYPartners and our marketing partners, affiliates, or analytics or service providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the Digital Tools, tracking users’ movements around the Digital Tools and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.

This information may include but is not limited to Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We do link this automatically collected data to other information we collect about you. We do this to improve the services we offer you and ensure proper site functionality.
Local Storage (HTML 5). We use Local Storage, such as HTML5, to store content information and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our Digital Tools use Local Storage such as HTML 5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5.
We collect information, some of which may be Personally Identifiable Information, that you voluntarily provide to us when you choose to use some of our online services (available either for free or on a subscription basis) such as the Community Areas, or use our products or services.
We use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide our services and products and to communicate with you regarding such services and products. We may also use your Personally Identifiable Information on an anonymous and/or aggregated basis for any purposes related to SYPartners' business, products or services, including without limitation, any commercial purpose. In addition, we may use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide information you have requested, to resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems. We also may use and/or share your Personally Identifiable Information: (i) to respond to specific inquiries made by you; (ii) to provide our services and products; and (iii) to customize, measure, and improve our products, services, content, and layout. In addition, we may analyze and use your Personally Identifiable Information and supplement it with other information we obtain to notify you and target advertising to you regarding special offers, products, services, and information that we think may be of interest to you, and to measure the advertising effectiveness of advertisements on our Digital Tools.
We use your Anonymous Information for the purposes of system administration, providing certain site functionality and content, site tracking, and collecting and reporting aggregate usage information. We may combine Anonymous Information with your Personally Identifiable information to notify you of special offers and target advertising and other content to you.
We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your username, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to us. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is our top priority. For more information about phishing, you may want to visit the Federal Trade Commission's website here.

If you are not a registered user of our Digital Tools, you may elect to receive updates from us about special offers, new services, and other noteworthy news items by contacting us at email@example.com. If you have opted-in to receive e-mails from us through either of the foregoing methods, to stop receiving e-mails from us, please see our opt-out policy described below. We will never sell, rent, or share your Personally Identifiable Information, including your email or phone number with any third parties for marketing purposes without your express permission. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with our service providers for the purpose of delivering our products, services and/or e-mails to you or as required by law.
Our users are given the opportunity to opt-out of emails to which they have previously opted-in, either through registering as a user of our Digital Tools or contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org as described in the "Opt-in Emails and Offers" section above. This does not apply to emails that relate to our Digital Tools information, Terms & Conditions, your account and purchases or that are automatically generated by the system (registration confirmation emails). For example, even if you have unsubscribed from our promotional email messages, we will still send you confirmations when you purchase any of our services. Users who no longer wish to receive our promotional communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking on the Unsubscribe link provided in emails.
If any or all of our assets are acquired by, or merged with, another entity, we will share some or all of your Personally Identifiable Information with that entity.

You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our systems. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your Personally Identifiable Information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. We promise that promptly after receiving your request, all Personally Identifiable Information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media will be updated, corrected, changed, or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as reasonably practicable.
We will retain your Personally Identifiable Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services or to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
We place great importance on the safety and security of your Personally Identifiable Information. We employ certain physical, procedural, and technological measures in an attempt to protect your Personally Identifiable Information from unauthorized access and use. Although we do attempt to keep your Personally Identifiable Information secure, no security measures are perfect; there is always a possibility that a security breach could occur, resulting in the release of Personally Identifiable Information.
Our Digital Tools are not directed toward persons under 13 years of age. The content on our Digital Tools may not be appropriate for children. CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13 ARE NOT PERMITTED TO USE OUR DIGITAL TOOLS, and we require that children between the ages of 13 and 18 obtain their parent's or guardian's consent before viewing our Digital Tools.
If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personally Identifiable Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personally Identifiable Information, we will remove such information from our files.
