In order to provide our full range of services, we may collect the following types of information:
Information you provide – When you sign up for a Site Account or other service or promotion that requires registration, we ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address and an account password). For certain services, such as our online store (planned), we also request billing and/or shipping address information which we maintain so you don't have to enter it again for future purchases.
