1. Information We Collect
Our Website typically collects two kinds of information about you: (a) information
that you provide which personally identifies you; and (b) information that does not
personally identify you which we automatically collect when you visit our Website
or that you provide us.
a. Personally Identifiable Information: Our definition of personally identifiable
information includes any information that may be used to specifically identify or
contact you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.
b. Non-Personal Information: Our definition of non-personal information is any information
that does not personally identify you. Non-personal information can include certain
personally identifiable information that has been de-identified; that is, information
that has been rendered anonymous. We obtain non-personal information about you from
information that you provide us, either separately or together with your personally
identifiable information. We also automatically collect certain non-personal information
from you when you access our Website. This information can include, among other things,
IP addresses, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox,
Safari, etc.), the third party website from which your visit originated, the operating
system you are using (e.g., Vista, Windows XP, Macintosh OS, etc.), the domain name
of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, NetZero, etc.), the specific
areas of the Website that you visit, and the duration of your visit.
2. How We Use & Share the Information Collected
a. Personally Identifiable Information: The personally identifiable information you
submit to us is generally used to contact you for a variety of reasons, such as services
we will or have provided. Your personally identifiable information will not be shared
or sold to any third parties at any time.
b. Non-Personal Information: We use non-personal information in a variety of ways,
including helping analyze site traffic; carry out activities and to improve our services.
We may use your non-personal information by itself or aggregate it with information
we have obtained from others, but remember that aggregate information is anonymous
information that does not personally identify you.
3. Other Uses & Information
a. IP Addresses: An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your
computer whenever you are surfing the Internet. Web servers (computers that "serve
up" web pages) automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When visitors
request pages from our Website, our servers typically log their IP addresses. We
collect IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report non-personal
aggregate information to others, and to track the use of our Website. IP addresses
are considered non-personal information and may also be shared as provided above.
We reserve the right to use IP addresses and any personally identifiable information
to identify a visitor when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our
Website rules or to: (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements
of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property,
our Website, or other users; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety
of our Website's users or the general public.
b. Cookies: "Cookies" are small text files from a website that are stored on your
hard drive. These text files make using our Website more convenient by, among other
things, saving your passwords and preferences for you. Cookies themselves do not
typically contain any personally identifiable information. We may analyze the information
derived from these cookies and match this information with data provided by you or
your internet browser to notify you and seek approval whenever a cookie is being
sent to your hard drive. You may also delete a cookie manually from your hard drive
through your internet browser or other programs. Please note, however, that some
parts of our Website will not function properly or be available to you if you refuse
to accept a cookie or choose to disable the acceptance of cookies.
c. Email Communications: If you send us an email with questions or comments, we may
use your personally identifiable information to respond to your questions or comments,
and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. For security reasons,
we do not recommend that you send non-public personal information, such as passwords,
social security numbers, or bank account information, to us by email. However, aside
from our reply to such an email, it is not our standard practice to send you email
unless you request a particular service or sign up for a feature that involves email
communications, we are sending you information about our other services, or you consented
to being contacted by email for a particular purpose. In certain instances, we may
provide you with the option to set your preferences for receiving email communications
from us; that is, agree to some communications but not others.
d. Other: Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, we reserve the right to
disclose any personally identifiable information or non-personal information about
you if we are required to do so by law, with respect to copyright or other intellectual
property infringement claims, or if we believe that such action is necessary to:
(a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or
legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our Website, or
other users; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of our Website's
users or the general public.
4. Keeping Your Information Secure
We have implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect
against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Please
be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your personally identifiable
information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information
you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction,
