What personal and other information we collect about you: My Ally collects both “personal information” and “non-personal information” through the Site and the Services we provide. For purposes of this Policy, “personal information” is information such as a name or email address that My Ally can directly associate with a specific person without additional information. “Non-personal information” is information that My Ally cannot directly associate with a specific person without the aid of additional information. When we combine non-personal information with personal information, we treat all of the combined information as personal information.
Collecting personal and non-personal information enables us to provide a better experience for our Members and Visitors. As discussed in more detail below, we collect this information for a variety of purposes, including protecting the security of the Services and our users, gauging the effectiveness of and improving our Services, distributing our newsletters, promoting the Site and other products and services provided by My Ally.
Personal Information: We collect Personal Information from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, register for access to the Services or use our Services. You can visit the Site without submitting any personal information. However, to gain access to the Services, you must become a Member and provide personal information, including your name, telephone number, email address, postal address, payment information, and company name. For our services that request personal information, you agree to provide accurate and current information about yourself.
We may combine personal information collected through the Site with other information that we collect about you in other contexts – such as our communications with you via email or phone. We will treat such combined information as personal information and protect it in accordance with this Policy.
We may retain personal information for an indefinite amount of time to preserve our database and to comply with various federal and state laws.
We use the non-personal information that we collect for such purposes as: counting and recognizing users of the Services; analyzing how users navigate the Services and use various features; improving the Site and Services and enhancing users’ experiences with the Site and Services; creating new products and services or improving our existing products and Services; enabling additional analytics and research concerning the Services; and managing our business.
We also may use the personal and non-personal information that we collect to send you promotional communications including emails about the products and services offered by My Ally. Although we hope you will find our promotional emails of interest, you may opt out of receiving them by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “optout” in the subject line. Promotional emails also will have instructions for opting out of that type of communication in the future.
How we share personal and non-personal information with third parties: My Ally does not share your personal information except for certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: My Ally, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
