Routine Information We Collect
Web servers routinely track basic information about visitors for administration and maintenance purposes, though none of this information can personally identify specific visitors to the website. This information may include IP addresses, browser details, timestamps and referring pages.
Personal Information We Collect
We do not obtain personal information about you other than that which you choose to provide to us. We may obtain personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide (such as your email address or name), including any information submitted by you in the form of website comments, online forms, contact emails, contest entries, or other direct communications. Such information will only be used to contact you in the event you have won a contest, requested information, or to communicate with you provided that you have opted in to receiving further communication from us.
For instance, we may ask for your comments, suggestions, or other information relating to our website or our products and services. We may also ask you for your first name, last name, e-mail address, or website url. Other types of information, such as your address or telephone number, may be requested in connection with contests, give-aways, promotional or other marketing efforts. Again, we will not sell, trade, or otherwise give away your personal information, except in those specific instances where you expressly give us permission to do so or as we may be required by law to do so.
Other Information We Collect
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our website to help reduce our costs. These companies may utilize non-personally-identifiable information about your visits (but not personal information such as your name, address, email address, or telephone number) to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. Such advertising programs may involve the use of passive cookies, such as DoubleClick’s DART cookie, scripts, or small web beacon images.
Choice & Security of Personal Information
You may choose to disable cookies in your browser settings, although doing so may interfere with the normal functioning of certain web pages. Therefore, we suggest reading up about disabling cookies before doing so. For information on Google advertising cookies and opt-out options, please visit the Google Advertising and Privacy page.
In the event that we request personal information from you, you may choose not to submit the information to us. If you do choose to submit requested personal information to us, we will do our utmost to ensure the security of the personally identifiable information, such as utilizing standard encryption technologies for pages or forms requesting sensitive information.
We are constantly working on improving our website, and welcome your comments and suggestions regarding privacy and other matters.
Thank you for visiting our website.
