We respect your privacy and value the relationship we have with you. This Privacy Policy describes the types of personal information we may collect on this Site, how we may use that information, and with whom we may share it. Our Privacy Policy also describes the measures we take to protect the security of the information you provide to us through this Site. We also inform you how you can reach us to answer any questions you may have about our privacy practices.


1. Types of Information Collected

In order to customize the Site for you, to modify and enhance the Site, we may collect two types of information about you:

Personally Identifiable Information” This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. We collect this information from you (such as your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address) only if you provide it to us.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information” This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. This information may include the Web site’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what Web browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (“Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the Web.


2. Effect and Modification

By submitting your Personally Identifiable Information to us, you consent to the collection and use of your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We may need to change this Privacy Policy from time to time for various purposes, including to reflect or address changes made to the Site or the Content. We will post the revised Privacy Policy on the Site and indicate the effective date of the revision. To continue using the Site you must agree to such a revised Privacy Policy.


3. Collection Methods and Use of Information

We do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to us when you send email messages, submit forms or transmit other information by telephone or letter.

In addition, we may also collect, or our content server may collect, certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information. This information, if collected, is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may be automatically collected by your use of the Site, for example as described in Section 8 of this Privacy Policy.

If collected, we will primarily use your Personally Identifiable Information to operate the Site. We will also use Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information to enhance the operation of our Site, statistically analyze use of this Site, and modify or customize our Site’s content or layout. We may use Personally Identifiable Information to deliver information to you and to contact you regarding administrative notices. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our agreements with you, including our Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy.


4. Release of Information

We do not sell, trade, or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to others. We do provide some of our services through affiliates, subsidiaries, services providers, partners and other third parties, and we may share your Personally Identifiable Information with such third parties as necessary to host and/or operate the Site (including maintaining appropriate back-ups of data) and to deliver our respective services. When this happens, we implement contractual agreements with such third parties limiting the use of your Personally Identifiable Information to activities specific to the Site.

Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personally Identifiable Information or Non-Personally Identifiable Information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We may disclose this information upon receipt of a court order or subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we believe in good faith to be unlawful.


5. Updating and Correcting Information

You agree that the Personally Identifiable Information you provide to us is accurate and truthful. You may change any of your Personally Identifiable Information or request that we delete your Personally Identifiable Information at any time by contacting us via the “Contact Us” link accessible from the homepage of the Site. However, full deletion may be impossible because, among other reasons, we may not be able to delete information concerning past transactions on the Site and because your Personally Identifiable Information may be stored in archived backups.


6. Security of Information

We take privacy rights seriously and seek high levels of compliance with all applicable data protection laws and regulations. As such, we maintain safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration or destruction of your Personally Identifiable Information. However, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT: (A) THERE ARE SECURITY AND PRIVACY LIMITATIONS OF THE INTERNET WHICH ARE BEYOND OUR CONTROL; (B) THE SECURITY, INTEGRITY AND PRIVACY OF ANY AND ALL INFORMATION AND DATA EXCHANGED BETWEEN YOU AND US THROUGH THIS SITE CANNOT BE GUARANTEED; AND (C) ANY SUCH INFORMATION AND DATA MAY BE VIEWED OR TAMPERED WITH IN TRANSIT BY A THIRD PARTY.
