Privacy Policy

  • What may be collected:

    For security purposes, our web servers automatically retrieve and log information regarding the IP address of visitors, and the time and date of their visits, and the pages visited on our web site. This is standard industry practice.

    We do not collect personally identifiable information about individual visitors, except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis.

  • How it’s collected:

    We collect information volunteered by you, the site visitor, in surveys, e-mail messages and/or online purchases. We normally do not retain the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail unless the e-mail exchange is part of an ongoing or developing business arrangement.

  • What is done with it:

    Personally identifiable information on individual users will never be sold, traded, or otherwise transferred to third parties.

    Our servers reserve the right to perform statistical analysis of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners. We will provide only aggregated data from these analysis to third parties.

    We're not in the direct-mail or phone-solicitation business. Unless the information is required for billing or similar purposes, we will not ask you for your mailing address or phone number. We will treat your mailing address with the same respect we reserve for your e-mail address. This information will also never be sold, traded, or otherwise shared with third parties.

  • Cookies:

    Users also should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected through the standard operation of our web servers, or through the use of "cookies". "Cookies" are small text files a web site can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's ongoing access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements. Cookies are not programs that come onto a user's system and damage files. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. If a user does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, users should note that cookies may be necessary to provide the user with certain features (e.g., electronic commerce & customized delivery of information) available on this web site.

  • Effective Date:

    The foregoing policies are effective as of the date noted below. We reserve the right to change this policy at any time, and without advance notice. This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.

    Effective Date:

  • Email Privacy Policy

    Why did you receive an email from us?

    If you received a mailing from us, (a) your email address is either listed with us as someone who has expressly shared this address for the purpose of receiving information in the future ("opt-in"), or (b) you have registered or purchased or otherwise have an existing relationship with us. We respect your time and attention by controlling the frequency of our mailings.

  • How we protect your privacy

    We use security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of data used by our system.

  • Sharing and Usage

    We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information with anyone without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only used for purposes of contacting you or sending you emails based on your request for information and to contracted service providers for purposes of providing services relating to our communications with you.
