Though you may use portions of the Web Site without providing any Personal Information, in order to take advantage of the full capabilities of the Web Site, you will be required to provide certain Personal Information. For example, you must provide Personal Information in order to place an order or to register for an account on or through the Web Site and we may request your name; home and/or business address; e-mail address; telephone, wireless and/or fax number; short message service or text message address or other wireless device address; instant messaging address; demographic information and/or other information that may identify you as an individual or allow online or offline contact with you as an individual.

How is Information Used and Disclosed?
