    In addition to registration, we may ask you for personal information at other times (including but not limited to) when you enter a lucky draw, contest or promotion sponsored by CrifBizInsights and/or our many partners; when you make a purchase using CrifBizInsights services; when you submit a listing for a web site; and when you report a problem with one of our products, sites or services.
