This allows us to better understand and analyze our user growth, general demographic information about the users of our Social Media Pages, and interaction with content on our Social Media Pages.

We reserve the right to release personal information or other information about users who we believe are engaged in illegal activities or are otherwise in violation of our Terms of Service, even without a subpoena, warrant or court order, if we believe, in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate our website or to protect the rights or property of our website, our affiliates or our officers, directors, employees, agents, third-party content providers, suppliers, sponsors or licensors. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities we reasonably believe, in our sole discretion, to be unlawful.
