By “personal information,” we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, social security number, e-mail address, or telephone number.


We may use personal information for the following purposes:

·      Verifying your identity so that we can be sure that all our communications with you are secure and confidential

·      Responding to inquiries or requests from you

We will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. Where required by law or regulation, you will be able to update the information that you provide to us by sending us an e-mail. Except in connection with the sale, transfer, merger, consolidation or other transaction involving all or part of our company, we will not sell, license or otherwise transfer any rights to your personal information to any third party unless expressly authorized by you.

In all cases, we will disclose your personally identifiable information consistent with applicable laws and regulations and we will require the recipient to protect the information and use it only for the purpose it was provided.

 

Non-personal Information

By “non-personally-identifiable” information, we mean information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with anonymous “usage data,” such as the number of unique visitors we receive, what pages are visited most often and the navigation preferences and characteristics of our visitors.

 

We may use non-personal information for the following purposes:

·      Web browser information. Web browsers collect and store information about the type of device and operating system you are using to access our website, as well as your device’s MAC address for facilitating network communications. Accessing this information helps us to establish a secure and consistent connection to you during your visits to our website.

·      “Cookie” technology. A “cookie” is an element of data that a website can send to your browser when you link to that website. It is not a computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or instruct it to perform any step or function. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the website is able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not extract other personal information about you, such as your name or address.

·      Client-side page tagging. This technology uses code on each web page to write certain information about the page and the visitor to a log when a page is rendered to you by your web browser. “Tagging” does result in a JavaScript program running in your browser, but it is limited to providing information about the page that you are requesting and the configuration of your browser. It will not read any of your data files, nor execute any additional programs. It does not extract any personal information about you, such as your name or email address. You can prevent tagging by disabling JavaScript in your browser, but that may prevent you from using all of our website’s functions.

·      Tracking pixels or beacons. These techniques use electronic files to track your navigation of our website, your completion of transactions and other browsing behavior.

·      IP Address. When you subscribe to an InternetService Provider (ISP), your computing device is assigned an IP Address. We track and store this address to help us manage security and monitor usage volume and patterns.
