Optional information such as your age or gender may also be requested. Lee reserves the right to use information gathered by it for any and all purposes. Lee may sell or share e-mail addresses and all other information with affiliates and with carefully selected companies who may offer you services and products of interest to you.

Third Party Access. Lee also allows access to her database by third parties that provide Lee with services, such as technical maintenance or forums and search software, but only for the purpose of and to the extent necessary to provide those services. If you choose to purchase items through features on the Website, Lee may forward your information to third parties for services such as credit card processing and order fulfillment.

In such cases, the information may be used by Lee and by such third party(ies), each pursuant to its own policies. Lee also may provide your information to Lee’s advertisers, so that they can provide advertisements to you that meet your needs or match your interests. While Lee will seek to require such third parties to follow appropriate privacy policies and will not authorize them to use this information except for the express purpose for which it is provided, Lee does not bear any responsibility for any actions or policies of third parties.

Unsolicited E-mail (SPAM). You should be aware, however, that unscrupulous marketers can sometimes “harvest” your e-mail address directly from your computer or another person’s address book or even obtain your e-mail address through programs that automatically search web pages and e-mail traffic for e-mail addresses. Lee also may disclose or exchange with others information you have provided to Lee if it is believed that the law requires Lee to do so or if it is necessary to protect the rights or property of Lee, Lee’s affiliate companies, Lee’s staff, or Lee’s users.

However, Lee is not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that may receive the information. Access to your personal information is limited to people who need it to do their job. For example, if Lee needs to mail something to you, Lee must share your name and address with a direct mail company. Lee limits such third parties in their access and use of your personal information.
