    Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person. You may choose to provide personal information to us when you use the Site. Because we may change our Site and services from time to time, the options you have to provide us with personal information also may change, but here are some examples of situations in which you may decide to provide personal information to us:

Because we request this information directly, it will be clear what types of personal information we are collecting.
