What Personal Information About Customers Do We Gather?
Here are the types of information we gather:
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, we use “cookies” as many websites do, and we obtain certain types of information when your browser accesses our site.
What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide certain features. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
Do You Share the Information You Receive?
Businesses and Individuals: We do NOT share your information with any other business or individual.
Third-Party Service Providers: We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include providing website services, sending postal mail and e-mail, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but they may not use it for other purposes.
With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
What About Third-party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?
Our websites may display targeted advertising based on personal information about users. Although we do not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that users who interact with or click on a targeted advertisement meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad (for example, users in the northwestern United States who like classical music).
How Secure Is My Information?
Your information is protected during transmission by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
