These are things such as a credit card number or other payment account number (including the three (3) or four (4) digit validation code for your credit card which is usually found on the back of the card). In order for you to take advantage of the services provided through the Sites, we may require that you provide this sort of Personal Information or, in the case of business accounts, that your employer furnish Personal Information for you, or authorizes you to do so. We and our third party service providers collect your Personal Information or business accounts information when you voluntarily provide it to us.
