This Site collects two kinds of information: (1) information that personally identifies you (such as but are not limited to: your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, fax number, credit card information, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services); and (2) information that does not personally identify you (such as the number of users who log on to the Site daily). As a general rule, no personally identifiable information is automatically collected from your visit to this Site. Exceptional People Magazine only collects and retains personal information that you provide to us voluntarily. In certain circumstances, you may be asked to provide us with some personally identifiable information about yourself in order to use specific features on the Site, such as contests, surveys and online forums or communities, and other promotions. For certain promotions, only persons who provide us with the requested personally identifiable information will be able to order products and services or participate in the promotion's activities and offerings. Such information may include contact information, and other information as we may require. The personally identifiable information you submit will be used to carry out your requests for our products, programs and services, and respond to your inquiries about offerings and to offer you other products, programs or services we believe may be of interest to you. We may sometimes use this information to communicate with you, such as to notify you when you have won one of our contests or when we make changes to subscriber agreements, or to contact you about your account with us.
If you choose to submit content for publication (e.g., "an article or letter to our editors"), we may publish your name, and other information you have provided to us.

We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer you products, programs, or services.
We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties that perform functions on our behalf such as companies or individuals that deliver merchandise, participate in our promotions, administer our promotions, provide marketing or promotional assistance, analyze data or provide customer service.
