2. Information gathered by Nevada Fresh Pak and its third party service providers.
When you visit Nevada Fresh Pak and interact with the services and tools that reside there, Nevada Fresh Pak and third parties with whom Nevada Fresh Pak has contracted to provide services to Nevada Fresh Pak may collect information on your actions. This type of information is generally collected from two sources. One is from the server log files and the other is from cookies.

a) IP Address: Your IP address is a number that is assigned by your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to your computer to identify its location. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. We also sometimes use IP addresses to communicate with members and subscribers and possibly even ban those members who are not complying with our Terms of Service.

b) Cookies: Our site uses a feature of your browser to set a "cookie" on your computer. Cookies are small packets of information that a site's computer stores on your computer. Nevada Fresh Pak can then read the cookies whenever you visit Nevada Fresh Pak. We use cookies to save your password so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site, to deliver content specific to your interests, to track the pages you've visited and to make sure you don't see the same ads repeatedly. These cookies allow us to use the information we collect to customize your Nevada Fresh Pak experience so that your visit to Nevada Fresh Pak is as relevant and as valuable to you as possible.

You may modify your browser preference to provide you with choices relating to cookies. You have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject cookies you may be unable to use those Nevada Fresh Pak services that require registration in order to participate or will have to sign in each time you visit the Nevada Fresh Pak.

Our advertising is currently served by third party advertising companies which deliver a cookie to you so the ads you see can be tracked and ensure that you are not shown the same ad too many times. Since the third party advertising company only tags your computer with a number, they know nothing about who you are. Nevada Fresh Pak does not provide these third party advertising companies with any personally identifiable information. However, these companies may use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to the Nevada Fresh Pak and other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

3. How Nevada Fresh Pak Uses Information it collects.
Nevada Fresh Pak uses the information you provide for several purposes, such as to communicate with you and to give you a better experience when visiting Nevada Fresh Pak by personalizing tools, content, services and email messages. Nevada Fresh Pak also uses this information to build new services and develop offers that Nevada Fresh Pak believes are more relevant and valuable to you.

The information collected by Nevada Fresh Pak is also used to create aggregated portraits of the Nevada Fresh Pak audience, portraits which present anonymous statistical demographic information but no personally identifiable information. This aggregated information is used, among other things, to determine trends and needs, and also to supply market research to potential advertisers and partners to help them understand who the Nevada Fresh Pak audience is. For example, we may create a report that tells advertisers that 60 percent of our members are females in a certain age range, so that they can determine which of their products or services are most appropriate for our members.

Nevada Fresh Pak offers the ability to forward an article to another person via email. If you use this service, we will use the recipient's email address in order to send the article or postcard and we will also ask for your email address.

You should carefully review the rules of each sweepstakes, contest and giveaway which you enter as they may contain additional important information about Nevada Fresh Pak 's or a sponsor's use of your personally identifiable information.
