Voluntary Registration Information.
In order to fully access this Site, you must first complete the registration process, during which we will collect personal information about you. The information will include your name, address, and email address and other identifying information about you and your business. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you except when you specifically provide such information to us on a voluntary basis.

Our site uses "cookies" and other tracking technologies. Cookies enable us to serve secure pages to our users without asking them to sign in repeatedly. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. If a user's system is idle for a defined time, the cookie will expire, forcing the user to sign in again to continue their session. This prevents unauthorized access to the user's information while they are away from their computer.
You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of the Site.
Third-Party Cookies: In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertisers may place or recognize a unique "cookie" on your browser.
You may choose to invite friends to join the YouPower.com by sending invitation emails via our invite feature. YouPower.com stores the email addresses you provide so that the respondents may be added to your social network, confirm orders/purchases and also to send reminders of the invitations. YouPower.com does not sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides invitations and invitation reminders. Recipients of invitations may contact YouPower.com to request removal of their information from our database.
