We have created this Privacy Statement in order to demonstrate our commitment to privacy. We value your trust and respect your confidentiality. As a general practice we do not provide any online information, or any information gathered through forms, applications or other means to any outside party, unless otherwise designated.
Collection of Information
We do not collect personally identifiable information about visitors except when visitors specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. Such personally identifiable information may be gathered in the course of registrations, information requests, or online surveys. We value opinions and comments from our visitors, so we offer an online Guest Comment form. This is entirely optional for all site visitors. Usually the information is aggregated and used for improving our website. In other cases we will use the identifying information as a vehicle for responding to an individual question or comment.
We keep track of your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our sites. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information about you, such as your location and your Internet service provider. We may also collect aggregate information on how our users are utilizing the site. This might include information regarding traffic patterns through the site and search queries.
We use a feature of your browser called a cookie to assign identification to your computer. The unique user ID contained within your cookie automatically identifies your computer — but not you — to our servers every time you visit our site. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user but may be correlated with identity information in our log files. You can turn the cookies feature off by using your browser’s preference options, but you may not be able to utilize some services properly.
Disclosure of Information
We may disclose visitor information if requested or required to by law, court order, other legal processes, or government or law enforcement authority. In addition, we may in our sole discretion disclose visitor information if we believe in good faith that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable for any reason including without limitation rights or properties of us or any third party.
