In all of these cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. We will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user (such as, for example, your full name, street address, telephone number, credit card number or e-mail address) to any third party without having received your permission.
If you do provide us with personal information for any of these activities, we may use it to conduct the activity. We may also use cookie technology (discussed in detail below) to improve your experience of these activities, including to remember your preferences, customize the content and advertisements that you see or authenticate your access to your personal information. In addition, in the event your personally identifiable information is requested as part of our surveys or polls, such personally identifiable information may be added to your registration information).

We may also transfer user information, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of related assets or corporate division or other fundamental corporate change.
Please note that if you give out personal information online — for example, on one of our public forums such as a message board or chat room, folder, chat IM feature — that information can be collected and used by third parties.

Non-Personal Identification Information
We collect non-personal identification information through the use of:
“Cookie” technology: A “cookie” is an element of data that a web site can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system.
“IP address tracking”: An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from our web sites, our servers log your IP address.
“Web beacons”: A Web beacon, or “clear gif”, is a small graphic image on a web page or web-based document that a web site can use to track the clicks of a unique IP.
Non-personal identification information might include the browser you use, the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to our site-such as the operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information. Our systems may also automatically gather information about the areas you visit within our web pages, search terms you utilize on our web sites and about the links you may select from within our site to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online.
We use such information to administer the site and, in the aggregate, to understand how our users as a group use the services and resources provided on our sites. This way we know which areas of our sites are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our sites.
We may share this aggregate statistical information with our partners, suppliers and other third parties, but we will not share any individual names, personal navigational or other personal information. For example, we may use a third-party advertising company to serve ads when you visit our Sites. We may share demographic and preference information with this company to allow them to display appropriate advertisements for you.
Some of our advertisers may display ads on our sites which solicit or contain technology to collect information about our users for the advertisers, but we will not permit such advertisers to collect any personal information from our users within our sites.
In addition, Extatica Inc. and/or a third party research company employed by Extatica Inc., may set cookies to collect non-personal identification information regarding your exposure to certain advertisements on Extatica Inc. web sites.
Privacy of Children
We understand that young people need special safeguards and privacy protection. We realize that they may not understand all the provisions of our policy or be able to make thoughtful decisions about the choices that are made available to our adult users. We strongly urge all parents to participate in their children’s exploration of the Internet and any online services, and to teach their children about protecting their personal information while online.
Extatica Inc. web sites are not directed to people under the age of 18. We prohibit registration by children under the age of 18 for all interactive portions of our web sites including chats and message boards. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under 18.
You agree to abide by these restrictions, and not to help anyone avoid these restrictions.
Links To Other Sites
Users may find advertising or other content on our web sites that link to the web sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. We do not control the contents or links that appear on these sites. In addition, these sites or services, including their contents and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policy (policies) at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.
Protecting your privacy and your information is a top priority. Extatica has a number of operational functions in place to protect the confidentiality of personal information.
