What Personal Information About Visitors Do We Gather?
The information we collect from visitors allows us to provide you with a more personalized and effective web browsing experience.
Here are the categories of information that we gather:
Information You Give Us. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features or offers. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, improving our website, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information. We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies,” which we use to obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our website. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
Do We Share the Information We Receive?
Information about our web visitors and customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others.
To help us make email messages more useful and interesting, we often receive confirmation when you open an email campaign from us (if your computer supports such capabilities). If you do not want to receive email from us, please reply to any email you receive from us by requesting to be “unsubscribed,” or by simply clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any email campaign message you receive from us.
For system administration and to create reports, we may collect information about your computer, such as your IP address, operating system, and browser type. These statistics are about the browsing habits of our users and do not identify them personally.
Our site only uses Google Analytics cookies. Google Analytics is a tool that helps website owners understand how their visitors interact with their sites. Google Analytics customers can examine a variety of reports regarding how their website visitors interact with it.
Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions, as in our case where they are used to collect information about how visitors interact with our site. The information is then used to compile reports and to help us improve the site.
Cookie files are small files that are stored on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies store information, such as the time of the current visit, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what website referred him or her to the web page.
In Google Analytics, information is collected anonymously. Website trends are reported without identifying individual visitors. If you don't want Google Analytics to collect data on your website, you can opt-out without affecting how you visit our site.
