We use information you provide to us to deliver the requested product and/or service, to improve our overall performance, and to provide you with offers, promotions, and information.
Information From Automatic Data Collection. As you click through our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies including Google Analytics to collect certain information. This may include information about your location, where you click on our website, and any communications between your computer and our Website. We may also collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, and your browser type.
The information we collect automatically is used for statistical data and will not include personal information. We use this data to improve our Website and our offerings. If you choose to voluntarily provide personal information to us, our systems will link the automatically collected information with your personal information.
Like many other commercial websites, our website uses a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how our site is being used. This information may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent on the Website, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that website’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a certain place of your hard drive. Depending on your browser settings and preferences, each separate website can send its own cookie to your browser, but to protect your privacy, your browser only allows a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies that other sites have sent to you.

If you choose to contact us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages along with your email address and our responses. This also applies when you sign up through any of our forms using your email address or make a purchase on this site.
We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease our email subscription lists to third parties, and will not disclose your email address to any third parties except as allowed in the section titled “Disclosure of Your Information.”
We will maintain the information you send via e-mail in accordance with applicable federal law.
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mails sent from our organization will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages will also contain clear information on how to unsubscribe from our mailing list if you no longer wish to receive e-mail communication from us.

HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?

Some of the information you may enter on our website may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL.

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, we use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
