Use of Personal Information

By submitting your personal information by and through the Hampton™ Offerings, including where you post a Member Profile to the Site, you agree that: (a) we may share, sell, rent, lease or otherwise provide that personal information (other than Sensitive Information) to any third-party for any purpose permitted by law; and (b) we may work with other businesses to bring selected third-party offers to you.

You hereby consent to the disclosure of any record or communication to any third-party when we, in our sole discretion, determine the disclosure to be required by applicable law, including sharing your email address with third-parties for suppression purposes in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, as amended from time to time, and other email marketing laws.  Users should also be aware that courts of equity, such as U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, might have the authority under certain circumstances to permit personal information to be shared or transferred to third-parties without permission.
