"Personal Information" is information about a person that is personally identifiable to such person like the person’s name, address, email address, or phone number, as well as other non-public information.
"Anonymous Information" or "Aggregated Information" means information that is not associated with or linked to Personally Identifiable Information. Anonymous or Aggregated Information does not permit the identification of individual persons.

Generally, we collect information in the following ways: when you submit information, including text, or photos, through your Registration, Profile, comments, ratings, our community, and in Tutorials; when we receive information through our Services; and when we receive information from entries to EZ contests or offers.
We will collect your name, your company’s name if applicable, your email and physical addresses, your phone, and PayPal email address (for Teachers) ("Personal Information"). This information and other information you provide to us, for example information submitted through your comments or Tutorials, will be collected, used and disclosed as outlined herein.

Our Security Procedures and Your Privacy. EZ takes great care in maintaining the security of your Personal Information, and preventing unauthorized access to it, through the use of commercially reasonable technology and internal procedures. Although EZ takes great care in maintaining the security of your Personal Information, EZ does not guarantee that unauthorized access will never occur.
What You Can Do For Your Security and Privacy: We take your privacy and security seriously. While we have taken the measures outlined above, you can assist us by (i) creating longer, stronger passwords longer, and (ii) not posting any personal information that identifies you, others, a business or entity. Don't post anything that you may want to remove at sometime in the future. (If you do need to remove something, you will need to contact us.)

Notice of Sharing. EZ may share your Personal Information or other information under the following circumstances: (a) within EZ, including our employees, and agents; (b) with third parties with your consent; (c) if we believe in good faith that it is required by law, legal process or court order; (d) as may be required to respond to an inquiry, request or complaint that you have made; (e) to persons or companies that EZ engages to carry out or provide support for the operations of its business (which may include customer support services or email service providers); or (f) if we believe in good faith that it is necessary to protect the personal safety, property, or interests of you, our users, the public, our licensors, Teachers, the Services or ourselves. EZ may share aggregate information and/or Anonymous Information about our users and visitors with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties.
Advertising, Marketing, and Promotions. We may disclose Anonymous or Aggregate Information to advertisers, business partners, sponsors, or other third parties but we WILL NOT disclose any information that could be used to personally identify you. The Anonymous or Aggregate Information may be used to gauge the usefulness and popularity of our web pages, or certain links to or from our Site. During those times when we participate in promotions and contests in conjunction with other companies, with the intent to share Personal Information, we will indicate this in our contest rules, on the registration page. Please refer to our promotion/contest rules for updates.
CAN-SPAM Compliance. As a member of EZ and the EZ Site, you consent to allow EZ to contact you to provide you with information concerning your account, your transactions with EZ, and your use of our Services. Email contact, for example, may include information regarding your rewards, Tutorials, comments or updated information associated with your Submissions or purchases. If you have indicated that you would like to be contacted regarding other services and promotions, EZ may also contact you with commercial information about products, services, promotions, contests, or other activities or offerings that may be of interest to you. Additionally, with each commercial communication you receive from EZ, you will be given the opportunity to indicate that you wish to "Unsubscribe" from receiving such future communications. By requesting that EZ send an email through the "Invite A Friend," feature, you understand that you are required to send an authentic email address that is being used solely for the purpose of providing information about EZ to your known friend, who would not object to receiving this email.
Information Provided to Customer Service. EZ or its designated third party customer service provider may offer support and technical assistance via telephone or email. Whenever you communicate with customer service, you understand: (i) that a customer service representative may view and make changes to your Personal Information in order to provide the assistance that you need; and (ii) that a customer service representative may reply to you via email, phone, or text message.
Legal Disclosures.

GIF Files. EZ uses pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These GIF files may be provided by our ad management partner and enable it to recognize a unique Cookie on your web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our Site. The Cookie was placed by us, or by another advertiser who works with our ad management partner. With both Cookies and spotlight technology, the information that we collect and share is Anonymous Information, which may be shared in aggregate form, and it is not personally identifiable and therefore does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.
If you have concerns about cookies or GIF Files, or need assistance on how to enable the cookies on your system, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
