Active Information Collection
Like many websites, this site actively collects information from its visitors by asking you specific questions or by permitting you to communicate directly with us via email. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (such as your full name, address and email address).
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through many websites, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, cookies, internet tags and navigational data collection.
An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your internet service provider so you can access the internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer).
A “cookie” is a bit of information that a website sends to your web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences.
“Session” cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to improve navigation on websites and collect aggregate statistical information. This site may use session cookies.
“Persistent” cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for many purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided, helping to determine what areas of the website visitors find most valuable, and customizing the website based on your preferences. This site may use persistent cookies.
“Internet tags” (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the website server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. We may use internet tags at this site. These tags indicate how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted. We do not collect or seek personally identifiable information through these tags.
Use and Disclosure of Information
ii) Where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations.
In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.
Access and Correction
To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current and complete, please contact us as specified below. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site.
We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Keep in mind that no internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, email sent to or from this site may not be secure and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.
