The information we collect may include personal information such as your name, e-mail address, phone number, and home address. In addition, we may collect demographic information such as your age, gender and interests. We may also obtain information about you from other sources, as far as such other sources are legally entitled to share such information, and combine that information with information we have collected from you.
* Web Site Registration
CODE may collect personal information from you when registering as a website or other online property member, including your name, address, e-mail address, and phone number. We may also collect demographic information such as your gender and birth date, which we may combine with your personal information and use it for marketing purposes. Once this information is combined it is all considered personal information. Information collected from those who register on our websites or other online properties is used to provide registrants the benefits associated with such registration (e.g., subscription to newsletters;; message boards, chat rooms or forums). From time to time, we may contact you to ask you for your opinion about certain matters in the form of online polls or surveys, including your opinion with respect to our services.

From time to time, CODE may run contests or promotions on our websites and other online properties and collect certain personal information in connection with such event.
