Based on these predictions, you may see specialized content, including advertising banners. Advertisers will never have direct access to any of your personal identification information.
In addition, we will send you e-mail notices about products, companies, and events that we think might interest you. If you do not want to receive these messages, simply tell us that when you give us your personal information.
We may also match information obtained from cookies with data provided by you.

This information lets us tailor our services to your interests. We also provide the analysis of our users (as a group) to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties. We do this so that our advertisers and us understand your needs and interests better, which allows us keep bringing you cool stuff free of charge.
