the manner described in this policy. This includes the release of such information to owners of each respective
Site and third parties as described below.
COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Crossroads collects two different types of information. One type is voluntary information, which you provide,
such as registration information for events, membership information, or shipping and billing information. The
other type of information Crossroads collects is user information provided by your computer each time you visit
this site, such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or browser. The information that Crossroads collects helps
us to provide information and service to you. We may combine information from other sources with the information
that we collect.
Any information that you provide to Crossroads or that is obtained through the Site may be used by Crossroads or
the respective owners of the Site. While Crossroads will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to
commercial entities, we may provide your information to third parties with whom we have a relationship to offer
you products and services we believe may be of interest to you.
COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
The Sites, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and
other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. A cookie is a small file or part of a file stored on a
World Wide Web user's computer, created and subsequently read by a web site server, and containing personal
information (as a user identification code, customized preferences, or a record of pages visited). These
technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of the Site people have visited, and
facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by
cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP)
addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these
identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with
personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy

the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Crossroads may use this
information in our marketing and advertising services.

been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
