II. COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
A) Personally Identifiable Information
B) Non-Personally Identifiable Information
In some cases, the Virile Sites may collect certain information about you that is not personally identifiable, such as your age, mailing code, product and information preferences, Site pages most frequently accessed, search terms entered, the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you are using and personal characteristics and other traits ("NPII"). We may also collect NPII about your use of the Virile Sites and other Web sites linked to the Virile Sites, such as the domain name of the Web site from which you linked to the Virile Sites. We use NPII to help administer the Virile Sites and to provide information about the Sites to potential business partners and other unaffiliated entities. We reserve the right to share, sell or trade aggregated NPII with third parties. As stated earlier, NPII does not identify you individually. When NPII and PII are combined we refer to this as PII and the combined information will be treated by Virile as PII hereunder as long as it is so combined.
C) Use of Your PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION/SHARING of your PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
When you register on one of the Virile Sites, you will be asked to provide PII. This allows the Virile Sites to maintain a user profile of each user so that we may customize preferences for each specific user, provide a faster method for Web visitors to submit information to Virile (and receive information back from Virile), notify users about important functionality changes to the Virile Sites and about new products and services offered by Virile and special offers that we believe users will find to be valuable, as well as generally allow us to better know our users and possibly tailor any specific features, promotions or other notifications to them. In addition, you may be asked to submit your PII when contacting us about questions, inquires or concerns or to provide services or support. When you provide PII on the Virile sites, Virile may store, process and use your PII in order to carry out the purpose for which such information was provided, enhance your experience on the Virile Sites (including tailoring it to your preferences), and for the general promotion, marketing, and advertising activities related to the products and services that Virile makes available from time to time.
Virile may also enhance or merge your PII with data obtained from third parties, such as information provided by a co-sponsor of a particular promotion, which Virile may then use for marketing and advertising activities. Certain services available on the Virile Sites may be provided by third parties, including without limitation, sub-contractors, authorized vendors, and fulfillment companies, and Virile may provide your PII to such third parties in order to deliver the requested service to you. Virile may also share your PII with third party service providers, such as data processors, companies who send emails on our behalf, customer support specialists, Web hosting companies, etc. These third party service providers are not authorized to retain, share, store or use your PII for any purposes other than to provide the services for which they have been hired to provide. Virile also reserves the right share, transfer or otherwise disclose your PII with trusted third parties that Virile believes may be able to provide you with valuable offers. If you would rather us not share your PII with the any third party for their such third parties’ direct marketing purposes, please do not submit information to the Virile Sites or let us know by following the "Do Not Share" procedures set forth in Section IX below. In addition, you agree that Virile may transfer, sell, assign or otherwise dispose of or encumber PII to third parties in connection with the sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of all or substantially of the assets, bankruptcy, reorganization or liquidation of Virile. In such case, you would not be entitled to any compensation arising from any such transfer, sale, assignment, disposition or encumbrance of your PII. Finally, Virile may disclose PII when required to do so under applicable law, including but not limited to comply with a legal requirement, judicial proceeding court order or legal process served on us; to investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; or when we believe it is appropriate to do so to protect the rights, property, or safety of our company or other persons.
You may at any time tell us that you: i) would like to review, update or have your PII deleted from Virile’s database by following the directions in Section VII. "Reviewing, Updating or Deleting Your PII In Virile’s Databases"; ii) would like to opt-out of receiving marketing emails or postal mail from Virile by following the directions in Section VIII. "Opting Out Of Receiving Information From Virile"; or iii) no longer want Virile to share your PII with third parties for such third parties own direct marketing purposes by following the directions in Section IX. "Do Not Share List".
PII submitted to Virile over the Virile Sites in connection with employment inquiries will be used only by Virile and its employees, agents, independent contractors and/or other third parties in your application process and as may be required under applicable laws.
E) Collection and Use of IP Addresses
In addition, we collect IP addresses to obtain NPII on the Site. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by a web server when you are on the web. When you are on our Site, we have a back-end server that logs your computer's IP address. We only use the information we find out from tracking IP addresses in the aggregate, such as how many users entered a specific area of our Site, and not to track a specific IP address to identify an individual user. However, we reserve the right to use such information to identify a user if safety and/or security issues arise or to comply with legal requirements.
III. PUBLIC FORUMS
From time to time you may be able to participate in certain activities on the Virile Sites, such as chat rooms or bulletin boards, which will allow you the opportunity to communicate with Virile or other users of the Virile Sites. Unless otherwise noted, these activities are generally accessible to all users of the Virile Sites and any information that you post or otherwise make available through these forums will be non-confidential and known to all other users. Accordingly, please exercise discretion when using these forums and when publishing any PII in these forums. You acknowledge and agree that Virile does not review, censor, or in any manner control the content of these forums and consequently Virile has no liability or responsibility whatsoever for information made available through these forums and that you will be liable to Virile for any liability that we incur as a result of any statement made by you in these forums. Your use of these forums is also subject to Virile's Terms and Conditions.
The security of your PII is important to us and we are committed to handling your information carefully. We restrict access to your PII to employees who need to know that information in order to provide services. In addition, we make reasonable efforts to follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the PII submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your PII, we CANNOT guarantee its absolute security and any transmission is at your own risk.
V. LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Virile is concerned about the safety of children when they use the Internet. However, the Virile Sites are neither directed nor targeted to children under 18 years old. Virile has no intention to knowingly collect any PII from individuals under the age of 18 years. If Virile learns that a child under the age of 18 years has provided PII to the Virile Sites without verifiable parental consent, Virile will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from its databases. If you believe your child, who is under 18, has submitted PII to the Virile Sites, please contact us via one of the methods described on our Contact Us page. We strongly encourage parents to monitor their children's use of the Web.
VII. REVIEWING, UPDATING OR DELETING YOUR PII IN VIRILE’S DATABASES
If you have previously submitted PII to Virile through the Virile Sites, and you would like to review, update, or have your PII deleted from our databases, please contact us via one of the methods described on our Contact Us page, and be sure to include complete information so that we can respond to your request: Please note that if you ask us to remove your PII from our database, we may, however, maintain your name or other necessary PII in a "do not mail" file to help us ensure that we can honor your request. Please note that we may share your PII with third parties, or otherwise transfer, sell, assign, dispose of or encumber your PII, prior to receiving your correspondence and we will not undertake any effort to cause such third parties with whom we have shared your PII or to whom we have transferred, sold, assigned, disposed of or encumbered your PII, to delete or update your PII, so if this concerns you, you should not share your PII with the Virile Sites.
VIII. OPTING-OUT OF RECEIVING INFORMATION FROM VIRILE
If you prefer not to receive marketing e-mails from Virile, please let us know by i) contacting us through one of the methods described on our Contact Us page ii) by clicking on the unsubscribe link within any marketing e-mail you receive from us; or iii) by unselecting the subscribe box on your profile page.

Because information submitted in connection with employment inquiries is used only in the application process and not for marketing purposes, the procedures outlined in this section are not available with respect to such information.
IX. DO NOT SHARE LIST
If you do not wish to have PII collected at our Sites shared with third-party organizations for their own direct marketing or promotional purposes, you can have your name placed on a "do-not-share" list by sending a request to us through one of the methods described on our Contact Us page. Please be sure to include complete information so we can respond to your request: If we have received your "do not share" request after having shared, transferred or otherwise disclosed your PII to a third party, Virile may not have any ability to control the use of such data by such third party (and we undertake no obligation to do so), so you agree that Virile will have no responsibility or liability whatsoever as a result of the use of such data by such third party. You also agree that Virile shall have no responsibility, obligation or liability to you for sharing, transferring or otherwise disclosing your PII with third parties prior to Virile's implementing your "Do Not Share" notification. Therefore, if you are concerned about Virile sharing, disclosing or transferring your PII to third parties, you should not provide such information to Virile.
Because information submitted in connection with employment inquiries is used only in the application process and not for marketing purposes, the procedures outlined in this section are not available with respect to such information
