We collect personally-identifiable information from you when you register on our site or fill out a form. When registering on our site or filling out a form, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address and/or phone number. You may visit our site anonymously, but anonymous users may not be able to take advantage of all advanced functionality offered by the site. The personally-identifiable information we collect from you is used to help personalize your experience on this website so we can better respond to your individual needs, improve the website and improve our service to you. Such information may also be used to administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only knowingly collect personally-identifiable information you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you and we use that information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer your personally-identifiable information to outside parties other than trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business or servicing you, so long as those parties also agree to keep this information confidential.
We may also release your information if we believe the release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect the legal rights or rights of property or safety of ourselves or others. Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.
Data Collection Methods
We use “cookies” on our sites. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive through your Web browser (if your browser’s security settings allow such a thing). Cookies allow this site and our service providers’ systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information in order to help us improve your access to this site and identify repeat visitors to the site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you may not have to log in using your password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users in order to enhance their experience on our site.
If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent. You can also choose to turn off some or all cookies via your local Web browser’s settings. If you turn your cookies off, some services we offer may not function properly.
We may contract with third-party service providers such as Google Analytics, Crazy Egg, New Relic or others to assist us in better understanding our site’s visitors and improving site performance. If so, these service providers will not be permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
