programs as described in more detail below, you may need to provide personal information.
Personal information identifies you and includes your name, mailing address, email address, and phone

use of your information. Sometimes the rules, terms and conditions or disclaimers that apply to a particular
Program include information on how we may use the personal information that you provide to us
