Privacy Statement

You can be assured that we are committed to protecting your privacy. This statement discloses the privacy statement practices for our site.

Collecting of information

You can expect to be notified of:

  • what personally identifiable information of yours is collected
  • how the information is used
  • with whom the information may be shared
  • how you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

This commitment extends to any personal information you provide.

At times we may run online surveys asking for specific contact or demographic information, such as what areas of the site interest you and how you use the web for personal use. These surveys will always be optional. The purpose of these surveys would be to improve the website for its users.

Sharing of information – Privacy statement

We will not share, sell, disclose or aggregate your personal information to third parties in any form, for any purpose, at any time unless we have your consent. This includes, but is not limited to, your email address.

Information collected on this web site may be made available to certain of our business partners who provide services to facilitate fulfilling requested services to users. Each such business partner enters into a confidentiality agreement with us. This insures that data we collect from our customers will not be sold, rented, or otherwise distributed to parties unknown to us; nor used for purposes other then those expressly sanctioned by us.

We will disclose personal and aggregate information when required by a valid legal mechanism such as a court order, subpoena, or search warrant, or when we deem it necessary, in our sole discretion, to protect our rights and the safety of others, or our members, employees, or properties.

The use of cookies

Our website may place a session cookie on your computer. A cookie is a unique identifier to help us understand how visitors navigate the site. The use of cookies is standard on the Internet and many major websites employ them. Most browsers automatically accept cookies; however, you can usually change your browser to prevent or notify you whenever you are sent a cookie. This gives you the chance to decide whether or not to accept the cookie.

The cookie itself would not identify you, your email address or any other personal information. We would use the information it provides to help us improve the site and our service, and to provide our visitors with a better experience while on the site. Even without accepting a cookie you can still access most of the features on the site. There may, however, be limitations on your use of some site functions.

For example, if you choose to disable cookies you might not be able to take advantage of special offers in emails from us. Your cookies may need to be enabled for the links in our promotional emails to work, for a special promotional landing page we create for you to work, or to have you receive the promotional benefit. The promotional email itself would not contain a cookie, but the landing page you come to via the email may use a cookie to apply the promotion for you. No personal or aggregate data would be collected by these cookies.

Log files

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, and date/time stamp.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.

Other sites

We provide links to other sites, but are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of these other sites.

We may syndicate our content to and distribute its content through other sites on the Internet. Although you may see our logo on these pages, your activity and information on a framed site is governed, gathered and controlled by the privacy statement on the URL /domain address you’re visiting. We do not receive user information back from these framed sites.
