We may combine this information with the information we collect from and about you to help us tailor our communications to you and to improve our Services.
Combination of Information
We may combine the information we receive from and about you, including information you provide to us, information provided by your company with information we automatically collect when you visit our Site or client-site, as well as information collected across other computers or devices that you may use and from third parties or other online and offline sources.
2. INFORMATION USE
Affinity may use the information we collect from and about you for any of the following purposes:
Information about your use of the Services may be aggregated or de-identified for business and marketing uses by us or by third parties. This aggregate or de-identified data may be used, for example, to improve the Service, measure and analyze Service use, improve our other products and services, and to provide more relevant advertising.
Additionally, if you use the Site to connect with third party services you authorize us to use information from and about you, on your behalf, to interact with these third party services based on your requests.
Finally, whenever we collect or process your personal information, we will keep it only for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. At the end of that period, your personal information will either be purged or anonymized, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning."

Affinity may share with third parties aggregate or anonymized non-personal information about visitors to the Site or client-sites without restriction as to use, including for the third parties' own marketing or analytics use.
4. INFORMATION SECURITY
We have taken certain reasonable administrative, technical, and physical steps designed to protect the information we collect from and about our customers and Site and client-sites visitors. For instance, when you enter sensitive information (such as credit card information) on our forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). While we make every effort to help ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee our security measures.
