When website users provide personally identifiable information (name, e-mail or home address, phone) HITS will not disclose this information to anyone unless the user specifies that we may do so, or unless required by law, to enforce our Terms of Use, to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of HITS, you or others; and to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain. Only statistical information about HITS users as a group (usage, demographics, etc.) may be shared with any affiliate, subsidiary, sponsor, advertiser or partner of HITS, unless an appropriate confidentiality agreement that disallows this is in place. How do we use the Information collected?

HITS may collect three types of information from its web site users:
