We collect personal information from you when you (i) submit questions or material to us, (ii) register on this site, (iii) purchase a product from us, (iv) e-mail us or (v) enter one of our contests or sweepstakes.
We use such personal information collected through this site for the purposes of:

If you do not wish to receive information about our products or services, or the products or services offered jointly with or on behalf of other organisations, please check the appropriate box on the registration page, sweepstakes/contests page or other relevant form or page through which the information is collected. Please note that by using any free e-mail account we may offer through this site, you may receive occasional communications from selected third party sponsors and partners.

- audit usage of the site.
We may share such information, in the aggregate form only, with our affiliates, partners or advertisers, or other third parties.
Any personal information you choose to provide to us with your submissions posted to this site may appear on the site, but only to identify you as the author of the submission, unless you expressly authorise us to make further use of the information on the site.
Chat Areas/Bulletin Boards
If you voluntarily disclose personal information on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas on this site, that information can also be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people.
Security of Information
We take precautions to ensure the security of personal information submitted by users. Unfortunately, no electronic communication over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to take care to protect your personal information, FremantleMedia cannot warrant the security of any information that you submit to us, and you do so at your own risk. We do offer secured-server transactions that encrypt your information in transit to thwart someone from intercepting it and misusing it when collecting credit card information for online purchases. We also store any personal information, including credit card numbers, in a secure area to which the general public does not have access.
