How We Collect and Use Information
We may collect and store personal or other information that you voluntarily supply to us online while using usdeception.org (e.g., while
on usdeception.org or in responding via email to a feature provided on usdeception.org). usdeception.org only contacts individuals who
specifically request that we do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive our messaging, attended one of our events, or
have purchased one of our products.
usdeception.org collects personally identifying information from our users during online registration and online purchasing. Generally, this information includes name and e-mail address for registration or opt-in purposes and name, postal address, and credit card information when registering for our events or purchasing our products. All of this information is provided to us by you.
We also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through usdeception.org. For example, we may
collect information about your computer's connection to the Internet, which allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of
our web pages to you and to measure traffic on usdeception.org. We also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a
"cookie" to enhance your experience with usdeception.org. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for
record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use usdeception.org, cookies help us deliver advertisements, identify how many
unique users visit us, and track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain
areas of usdeception.org where you may have entered preference information before.

We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
We may also make some content, products and services available through our Site or by emailing messages to you through cooperative
relationships with third-party providers, where the brands of our provider partner appear on usdeception.org in connection with such
