When you log on to our Website and communicate with us via our Website, we do not collect personal information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. Personal information (“Personal Information”) is any information or data that is unique to an individual such as a name, social security number, address, e-mail address, birth date, etc. Portions of our Website may allow you to provide us with Personal Information in order to deliver requested materials, products or services to you, respond to your questions, or enable you to update information. Additionally, registration may be required and Personal Information may be collected in certain portions of the Website in which you specifically and knowingly provide such information (e.g., services requests, subscription registration, community postings, suggestions, or customer service requests).
Use of Personal Information
Like many other websites, we make use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable (“Anonymous Information”).
Use of Anonymous Information
We use Anonymous Information to help us determine how people use parts of the Website and who our visitors are so we can improve our Website and ensure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many people as possible. We also use Anonymous Information to provide statistical “ratings” information in aggregated form to our partners and other third parties about how our users collectively use the our Website. We may also use or share Anonymous Information (or other information, other than Personal Information) in any other manner that we deem appropriate or necessary.
Cookies and Web Beacons
If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options, provided if you do so, you may disable functionalities. More detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers can be found at the browsers’ respective websites.
Internet Protocol Addresses
An Internet Protocol Address (“IP Address”) is a number that automatically identifies the computer or machine that you are using to access the Internet. The address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit. It may disclose the server owned by your Internet Service Provider. We utilize your IP Address to help diagnose problems with our server and to support our site administration.
Security of Your Personal Information
The security of Personal Information you submit via this Website is very important to us. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Personal Information collected by our Website is stored in operating environments that are not available to the public. We employ the use of built-in firewalls (a combination of computer hardware and software) to help keep unauthorized users from accessing information through our computer network. However, no system can perfectly guard against risks of intentional intrusion or inadvertent disclosure of information sent to us. Moreover, when you transmit information via the Internet, your Personal Information will be transmitted over a medium that is beyond our control, and therefore the security of the transmission may be compromised before it reaches us. If a password is used to help protect your accounts and Personal Information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your Personal Information from subsequent users.
Public Areas, Chat Rooms, Forums and Newsgroups
We occasionally have third party agents, subsidiaries, affiliates and joint ventures that perform functions on our behalf. These entities have access to the Personal Information needed to perform their functions and are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of that Personal Information. They are restricted from using in any way other than to provide the requested services to the Website.
