Each of these different types of information is used to provide users with access to a rich collection of on-line resources made available through, and as updated from time to time on the MentorMyself Site (collectively, the "Service").

In addition, we use this information to perform statistical analysis of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the MentorMyself Site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, their leaves, advertising banners, etc.

SHARED INFORMATION

Please understand that users can make certain aspects of their tree public or semi-public. Accordingly, users must use their own good judgment in what information they make public or semi-public because MentorMyself will have no control or legal responsibility for such information users elect to share with others. We may share your personal or business information as described below:

Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We anticipate that we may become affiliated with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses may operate stores at the MentorMyself Site, sell items to you through the MentorMyself Site or offer you products or services that may be of interest to you. In other situations, MentorMyself may provide services, or sell products jointly with affiliated businesses. You can easily recognize when an affiliated business is associated with a particular opportunity or transaction, and we will share user information that is related to such opportunity or transaction with that affiliated business.

Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Examples include sending email, analyzing data, and providing user services. Without your permission, MentorMyself agents do not have any right to use personal information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

Business profiles: Business profile information including business name, address, phone number and email address is displayed to users publicly in connection with the Service. As part of the MentorMyself Site and the Service, you will receive from MentorMyself and other users and partners of MentorMyself e-mail and other communication relating to your business and/or the products and services you offer.

Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if MentorMyself, or substantially all of its assets or capital stock were acquired, or in the event that MentorMyself goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of MentorMyself may continue to use your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Protection of MentorMyself and Others: We may release personal and business information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with law; enforce or apply our Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of MentorMyself, our employees, our users, or others. This includes, without limitation, exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection.

With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your personally identifiable individual information may be shared with third parties, and will be given the option to prevent the sharing of this information.

CUSTOMER SURVEYS

MentorMyself may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if a third party conducts the survey. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.

We take the information we receive from individuals responding to our customer surveys and aggregate it with the responses from other customers to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated; non-personally-identifying information may be shared with third parties.

You should be aware that MentorMyself cannot control the use of cookies by advertisers or any information advertisers may gather from their use of cookies. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, you should note that cookies might be necessary to provide you certain features (e.g., customized delivery of information) available on the MentorMyself Site.
