The Information We Collect
When you visit our website you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website.
Personal Information You Knowingly Disclose
You may voluntarily provide us with personally identifiable information. If you choose to correspond with us through our email or our website, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.
Website Use Information
In addition, similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (explained below) and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of your visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website.
A cookie is a very small data file, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file (the cookie) in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but to protect your privacy your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
How We Use Personal Information
We use personal information for purposes of responding to inquiries, enhancing or modifying our site, or administering and expanding our business activities, the latter two of which may include use of trusted third parties in order to do so.
Security of Personal Information Shared
Email is not a secure medium of communication. You should not send private or confidential information to us by email or otherwise in connection with our website.
As you use our website, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other users. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve our website. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you, and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.
If you’d prefer to restrict, block or delete cookies from our website, you can do so in your browser settings. If you choose to disable cookies, then please note that this may limit the way you use our website.
We may also disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the law or comply with legal process served on us or parties affiliated with us; (b) protect and defend our rights and property, our website, the users of our website, and/or our affiliated parties; and/or (c) act under circumstances to protect the safety of users of the website, us, or third parties.
