Many Internet services deliver cookies to people who visit their Web sites in order to make their services more convenient and personalized. When delivered, a cookie helps relate information we have in our database to your browser. Some of this information includes information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to us.

This technology uses information about your visits to this Site and the sites upon which we advertise to serve advertisements to you. In the course of serving our advertisements, a unique third-party cookie may be placed or recognized on your browser. We may also use Web beacons, provided by our ad serving partner, to help manage our online advertising. These Web beacons enable our ad server to recognize a browser’s cookie when a browser visits this Site and to learn which advertisements or listings bring users to our Site.
Log Files; IP Address – This Site’s Web server, and the Web servers of some third party benefit providers, may automatically write files with, at a minimum, the following information: your IP address, request type, file accessed, browser type, referring URL and access time.

III. SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
US Sweeps does not sell, share or disclose personal information about our users and visitors to any outside companies, except as provided for in this Policy.
US Sweeps may disclose user personal and non-personal information if (i) we are required to do so by law or regulation, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform or comply with any legal, regulatory, law enforcement or similar requirement or investigation, (ii) to protect or defend the rights or property of US Sweeps or any other user or (iii) to enforce the US Sweeps Terms of Service.

IV. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect personal information provided to us on the Sites.
