We use this information to communicate with you, such as to notify you when you have won one of our contests or when we make changes to our subscriber agreements, to fulfill a request by you for an online newsletter, or to contact you in response to a contact form you have submitted.
We use the information that you provide about others to enable us to send them your gifts.
If you choose to submit content for publication (e.g., a review of a product), we may publish your name and other information you have provided to us. We use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our sites and to enable us to personalise your Internet experience.

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION BY THIRD PARTY SITES AND SPONSORS
Some of our sites contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy policies before submitting any information, as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
We sometimes may offer content or programs (e.g., contests or promotions) that are sponsored by or co-branded with identified third parties. By virtue of these relationships, the third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the site activity.
