Why we collect personal information
We collect and use your personal information to provide you with our information, and to make a wider range available to you. In addition, we use your personal information to keep you up to date on the latest news, and other information we think you’d like to hear about. From time to time, we may also use your personal information to contact you to participate in a survey.
How we collect personal information
We collect information about you in several ways. For example, we might ask for your contact information when you correspond with us, register for our newsletter, or participate in an online survey. We collect and store the information you provide in a secure database.
When we disclose personal information
We work with other companies that help us provide information and services to you, and we may provide your personal information to these companies.
At times we may be required by law or legal process to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we believe that disclosure is necessary for the public interest.
How we protect your personal information
We safeguard the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
Our website uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. This protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the Internet.
Access to your personal information
You always have access to the information we have about you. If you would like to review other personal information that we may have about you, please email us.
Collecting other personal information
When you browse our website, you are able to do so anonymously. Generally, we don’t collect personal information when you browse — not even your email address. Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.
In some of our email to you, we use a “click-through URL.” When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web server before arriving at the website that is your destination. We track click-throughs to help us determine your interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.
Our commitment to privacy
To make sure your personal information remains confidential, we communicate these privacy guidelines to every employee.
We do not knowingly solicit personal information from children or send them requests for personal information.
Our website contains links to other sites. We do not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.
If we are going to use your personal information differently from that stated at the time of collection, we will try to contact you via email using the most recent information we have. If you have not given us permission to communicate with you, you will not be contacted, nor will we use your personal information in a new manner.
