Yo respects your privacy

This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by us through this site, and does not apply to information collected by us through other means or by companies that we do not own or control.

Your privacy is vitally important to us. We will not sell, rent or share your personal information (your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number) with any third party without your express permission.

By visiting this site you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, and to use the site subject to our Terms of use. If you do not agree, please do not use or access our site.

If you add content to this site in violation of Section 6 of our Terms of Use, we deem that an express waiver of the protections of this Privacy Policy. Added 3/25/2011.

We use information you provide primarily to customize what you see, to fulfill orders you place for products and services, to improve our offerings to you, and to provide anonymous reporting for internal purposes and third-party advertisers and affiliates. We may use personal information about you subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Notice about customer service e-mails

If you enter into a customer relationship with us or any affiliate that offers products and services through this site, we or they may send you, as a customer service and for your protection, e-mail confirmation of orders you have placed through this site. You may also be sent e-mail renewal notifications concerning such orders, even if you have requested not to receive other e-mail marketing communications. We will send e-mail notification of changes to any online profile you create with us and will, at your request, e-mail a forgotten password.

How we gather information from users

How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate, and the services provided. You can visit many pages on our site without providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provide information, such as when you register for access to portions of our site, request certain features, or make a purchase. You may also provide information when you participate in contests, voting and polling activities, message boards or forums, chat rooms and other interactive areas of this site.

If you are a licensed real estate broker or agent offering property for sale or rent, the law in effect in many states requires you to disclose your company name and phone number in all marketing communications. We may require you to provide, and may automatically display such information, as we deem appropriate.

Cookies and other technology

Like most Web sites, we collect information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to you. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use “cookie” technology, which is standard on the Internet. Among other things, a cookie may store session information and, if you so elect, other information such as your e-mail address and personal address, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit or request a service, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may limit or bar your ability to access certain portions of this site or may require you to re-enter information each time you visit. Refusing to accept cookies may also make it impossible for us to customize the site’s features based on your preferences.

When you access a Web page, we may track your interactions with that page and report those interactions, in an aggregated form and without disclosing your personal information, to the person who published the Web page.

What we do with the information we collect

We will use your information only as permitted by law and this Privacy Policy. Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. We may, for example, combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or which features are most attractive. Aggregated Information may also be shared with Wibiti publishers, our advertisers, affiliates and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.

We also collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. For example, we may use personal information collected by us to communicate with you regarding our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, products and services offered by us and our affiliates and partners, administration of sweepstakes and contests, processing e-commerce transactions and other topics we think you might find of interest.

Personal information collected by us may also be used for other purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site may, in certain circumstances, be provided access to such information, but they will not have any independent right to share such information.

As we develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. User information may be among the assets transferred in such transactions. We may also disclose your information when we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by court order or by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, to protect and defend our rights and property, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of this site, and / or whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary to give such information to law enforcement authorities. Please note that we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

Your choice to opt out

A controlled program of e-mail marketing may be an important element of our business and of the business of some or all of the third parties from whom you purchase products or services through this site. We make your e-mail address and other personal information (except for credit card information) available to such third parties when you enter into a customer relationship with them. If you prefer not to receive e-mail marketing communications from us or from them, you will be given an opportunity to opt out of such communications on a blanket basis. We assume, by default, that you wish to opt out of receiving e-mail marketing communications. You may access your account information to change that preference at any time.

Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements

We expect our partners, advertisers and third-party affiliates to respect your privacy. However, third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a page, content that is created or hosted by a third party. You may also be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, advertisements, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. We are not responsible for the actions or policies of such parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.

While on our site, our advertisers, promotional partners or other third parties may use cookies or other technology to attempt to identify some of your preferences or retrieve information about you. For example, some of our advertising may be served by third parties and may include cookies that enable the advertiser to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before. Through features available on our site, third parties may use cookies or other technology to gather information. We cannot control the use of this technology or the resulting information and are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties. You may elect to provide information directly to Web page owners to facilitate their communication with you. We have no control of such parties and are not responsible for any use they may make of information you provide.

What you can do to protect your privacy

Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. If you choose to disclose personal information on our site, such as in Web pages you create, in messages you send through this site, in forums, message boards, chat areas or in notices you post, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond our control and this Privacy Policy.

We provide a number of options, including supplying your e-mail address in a database field, that facilitate your anonymous communication with parties visiting this site and with Web page owners. We suggest that you be alert to those options and avoid including your e-mail address in other areas of the site.

Children

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from or about children under 13 except as permitted by law. If we discover we have received any information from a child under 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe we have any information from or about anyone under 13, please contact us at the address listed below.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes will become effective 30 days after this Privacy Policy is amended. Please check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of our site following the posting of changes to these terms means you accept those changes. Information collected prior to the time any change is effective will be used according to the rules and laws that applied at the time the information was collected.

Any claim related to the site or this Privacy Policy shall be brought in a federal or state court in Chicago, Illinois, within one year after the claim arises. You agree that no such claim may be brought as a class action.
