What Information Is Collected?
We collect personally identifying information from voluntary user registrations, requests for information, surveys, contact forms and emails. We also collect non-personally identifying information when you visit our website about which pages you visit, how long you visit certain pages, and how you arrived at our website among other things.

Why Do You Collect Information?
The information we collect allows us to improve your user experience through the customization of content and layouts of various pages. It also enables us to respond to your requests for information and keep you informed about new features and services that we offer along with any content that we provide through our newsletters. In addition, some information is shared with reputable organizations who may contact you with special offers of possible interest.
We may use your personal information with non-personal information that we have collected in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of our site. We may make your personal information non-personally identifiable by either combining it with information about other users (aggregating your personal information with information about other users), or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-personalizing your information. You grant us a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and fully transferable right and license to use your personal information in connection with the creation and development of analytical and statistical analysis tools relating to the use of the customer data we collect in providing the site and our services (the “Analytical Data”). We are expressly authorized to make any commercial use of the Analytical Data, including without limitation, sharing the Analytical Data with third parties, provided that we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer from us any part of the Analytical Data that personally identifies any of our website users.
Who Do You Share My Information With?

If you do not wish to share your information with other companies or organizations, please let us know by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling us at 424-238-5976, or writing to us at Customer Service, Accelerize Inc., 20411 SW Birch Street, Suite 250, Newport Beach, CA 92660. We retain email opt-out and postal/telephone non-solicitation requests for five years.
May I see the Information You Collect From Me?
Yes, upon request, we will provide you with access to your personal account information, account status, contact information, and other information that we collect. You may access the information by emailing us a request at email@example.com. We also allow visitors to correct any inaccuracies in their contact information simply by emailing the changes to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Are Cookies?
We may also use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (non-personally identifying) about your visits to this and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and become aware of your choice to not have this information used by companies, please contact us at email@example.com.

We are concerned about the safety of children. We do not knowingly allow anyone under the age of 13 to provide us with personally identifying information.

We may also offer contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions from time to time that are sponsored or co-sponsored by third parties. These third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the contest, sweepstake or promotion.
