If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, users will be notified via e-mail. Users will then be presented with a choice as to whether or not we become authorized to use their information in this different way. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also email users (who have opted to receive communications from AlertGPS™), notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
