We use your Personal Information for four primary purposes:
To make the site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
To help you quickly find businesses, products & services, deals & coupons etc.

WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION YOU SHARE
When you join us, you provide us with your contact information, including your name and email address. We use this information to send you updates about your order, questionnaires to measure your satisfaction with our service and announcements about new and exciting services that we offer. For Businesses: When you order from us, we ask for your credit card number and billing address. We use this information only to bill you for the product(s) you order either one time or for a recurring monthly plan. For your convenience, we do save billing information in case you want to order from us again, but we don't use this information again without your permission.
We may hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
