  1. INFORMATION WE GATHER

3a. Registration

If you register with the Site, either as a User Member or a Vendor Member, we collect and store Personal Information that specifically identifies you or the account you set up with Mazel Moments (your "Account"). At this time, you will be required to submit a very limited amount of information in order to set up an account.  Most information requested on our Vendor Registration page is optional. We may, in the future, include other optional requests for information from you to help us tailor the Site for you and deliver personalized information to you. We may supplement Personal Information you provide us with additional information purchased from third parties for marketing purposes. In addition, if you add a vendor to your planning tools, or provide a review of a new vendor, we will automatically add that vendor's information to our catalog (without any link back to you).

3b. Password
Use of portions of the Site requires you to establish a User ID and password. You agree that you will be responsible for maintaining your password as confidential and for any activity that occurs on your Account as a result of you sharing your password with another or failing to protect it. Mazel Moments is not responsible for any loss or damage arising from your failure to maintain the confidentiality of your password.

3c. Online Surveys and Contests
Occasionally, Mazel Moments may conduct User surveys to collect information about our Users' preferences. These surveys are optional, and if you choose to respond, your responses will be kept anonymous. These surveys may be conducted by and processed through third parties. Similarly, we may offer contests to qualifying Users in which we ask for contact and demographic information such as name, email address and mailing address. Except with respect to any survey partners, none of the survey results are shared with third parties in a personally identifiable form. The demographic information that Mazel Moments collects in the registration process and through surveys may be used to help us improve our Services and Site to meet the needs and preferences of our Users. This may include targeting advertising to you about our Services and Site. Information we gather through a contest may also be disclosed to third parties as necessary for prize fulfillment and other aspects of any contest or similar offering.

3d. Automatically Gathered Information 
Mazel Moments automatically collects browser type and browser software version to tailor the presentation of the Site and the Services to the User's platform and to maintain a record of the User's activity on the Site.

If you disable cookies on your browser, please note that some parts of our Site may not function as effectively or may be considerably slower. As an automatic process, our Web server software records a log file of IP addresses that access the Site. We also collect IP address information but do not ordinarily link IP addresses to Users' Personal Information. However, we can and will use IP addresses to identify a User when we, in our sole discretion, determine that it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, or to protect our service, Site, customers, vendors, or others.

When you send messages to your guests, we collect and retain the email addresses or other pertinent contact information of those persons to whom you send the message. Even though we retain contact information about your guests, Mazel Moments will not use these email addresses to send promotional communications, newsletters, or service announcements without your explicit permission, nor will we intentionally sell or otherwise disclose, to any third party, any guest contact information that you submit. If a guest chooses to register with Mazel Moments, that individual will be considered a Mazel Moments member and may receive promotional communications, newsletters, and service announcements from Mazel Moments according to our Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy.
