Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy covers the website (the "Website") and is effective as of September 1, 2010.

Our Privacy Commitment To You

This Privacy Policy is designed to maintain your trust and confidence, help you understand how we collect, use and protect personally-identifiable information you decide to share, and help you make informed decisions about how you may access, correct, or delete this information.  By using or accessing the Website, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

What Information Do We Collect and How Do We Use the Information?

We do not collect personally identifiable information on the Website unless you voluntarily provide such information.  If you request information, we may ask for your name, address, phone number, and other information.  Supplying this information is strictly voluntary, and you may contact us if you no longer wish to be contacted by us.  We will not use your personal information for direct marketing purposes without your consent.

We automatically track certain non-identifying information through the Website through the use of "cookies."  We place a cookie into the browser file on your computer.  The cookie is a small computer file the web server uses to recognize the computer of certain users that have visited the Website previously which helps the Website provide certain functionalities.  The cookie does not contain or collect any personally identifying information but will collect information regarding the usage patterns associated with the user's personal computer.  Information tracked with cookies is primarily used to improve and update the site and to provide site-traffic data, and is only collected on an aggregate basis.  When and if we do present such aggregated information to outside companies, no one will be able to identify you or contact you.  If you do not wish to permit the placement of cookies on your computer, most web browsers have a feature which will allow you to block cookies.  However, you should be aware that blocking the placement of cookies may disable or hinder certain Website functionalities.

We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders.  Additionally, we may share personally-identifiable information when we believe it necessary to comply with the law, to enforce the Terms and Conditions of the Website, to protect our interests or rights, property, and safety of our employees and clients, or if we merge with or are acquired by another party.

The Website may contain links which direct users to websites operated by third parties.  Our Privacy Policy does not apply to other websites.  If you choose to click on one of these links, you will be directed to the website operated by a third party.  Any information that you submit at these websites is submitted directly by you to these third parties and will be governed by that third party's privacy practices and procedures.  We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of these third parties.

How Can You Review Or Remove Information We Collect?

If your personally-identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire to receive our promotional materials, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate your information by contacting us by e-mail, telephone or postal mail, as applicable, at the contact information listed below.  We will honor your request within a reasonable amount of time.

You can opt out of our use of cookies as described above.  You cannot access or change other non-identifying information that we collect in aggregate or an automatic basis from visitors to the Website.

How Do We Protect And Secure Information?

We are dedicated to protecting personal information we collect.  To prevent unauthorized access and to maintain and ensure the correct use of information, we have established physical, electronic, and managerial security protocol and procedures.  Our servers are located in a secured area with cameras.  The server protects access by unauthorized means by use of firewalls.

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the email address submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.  No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.  Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.  If we make material changes to the way we use your personal information or change our privacy practices, we will post those changes to this Privacy Policy, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose such information.

Secure transmission is not used for our general website information, but we do use other means such as firewalls to secure information.  Although we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or destruction of data, we try to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.  Please be aware that no method of transmission or electronic storage provides certainty of security.  We therefore cannot guarantee absolute security of the personal information and email addresses we collect.

You Consent To Terms and Conditions Of This Privacy Policy, Including Any Future Revisions

Your use of the Website and any dispute arising from it is subject to this Privacy Policy as well as our Legal Notices and Terms and Conditions and all of its dispute resolution provisions, including limitations on damages and choice of law described in the Terms and Conditions.  If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the Website, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it frequently.  If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.  Immaterial changes and clarifications will take effect immediately, and material changes will take effect within 30 days of their posting on the Website.  Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you.
