Gathering and Use of Information
Hartz will never willfully disclose any personally identifiable information about our visitors to any third party without first receiving the user's (or if a child, the parent's or guardian's) permission. We do not collect personally identifiable information from our visitors other than what is supplied to us on a voluntary basis. Visitors may provide personally identifiable information to Hartz during (1) subscription registration or (2) a contest or sweepstakes registration. In addition, personally identifiable information may be voluntarily provided by the user in connection with certain content submissions, community postings (i.e., chats or bulletin boards), comments and suggestions, or voting.
This Site makes available to its users chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups. Any information that you disclose in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise extreme caution when deciding to disclose such information.
Hartz may use such information for its internal purposes, including but not limited to, editorial feedback, marketing and promotional purposes. Hartz may also use this information to deliver to you information about our company and promotional material from some of our partners, and for trend analysis, pattern detection, and site administration. In addition, Hartz may collect Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Hartz does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable so your use of our Site remains anonymous.
