Your provision of your Personal Information to us is completely voluntary. “Personal Information” is information that can identify you. We do not collect Personal Information unless you submit that information to us, such as when you choose to participate in our offers and programs or otherwise provide information directly to us, including when you register with us, purchase products, participate in our interactive features or otherwise interact with us on the Web site. Categories of Personal Information we collect include:
- Identity Data, which includes name or other similar identifiers.

In some instances, we may combine Non-Personal Information with Personal Information. If we combine any Non-Personal Information with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information.
