What Is Personal Information?
As used herein, the term “personal information” means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address, date of birth, credit card number, social security number), or information about that individual that is directly linked to personal information. Personal information does not include “aggregate information”, which is data we may collect about the use of the Site(s) or about a group or category of users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information.
How Do We Collect Information, and What Types of Information Do We Collect?
We collect several types of personal information about you in a number of ways when you visit or use the Site:
We collect certain information when you voluntarily provide it, such as if you send us an email.
When you use the Site, some information is also automatically collected, such as when you visit the site. We treat this information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the personal information mentioned above. Otherwise, it is used in the aggregate only.
We may also automatically collect certain information and monitor user activity through the use of “cookies” (including persistent and/or session cookies) or web beacons (also known as web bugs, pixel tags,tracking pixels, or clear gifs) on the Site. A “persistent cookie” is stored on a user’s hard drive until it expires (persistent cookies are set with expiration dates) or until the user deletes the cookie. Persistent cookies help websites remember your information and settings when you visit them in the future. “Session cookies” are cookies that expire upon the conclusion of your visit to a website. These types of cookies are widely used to facilitate a consumer’s interaction with a website. All information obtained as described herein treated as confidential and will not be disseminated to any third-parties. If you wish to block, erase, or be warned of cookies on the Site, please refer to your browser manufacturer to learn about these functions. However, if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect certain features on the Site. In addition to the above, information provided by cookies, web beacons, or other devices may be used, among other things, to determine the popularity of content on the Site, to deliver targeted marketing and to better understand the Site’s usage or effectiveness and to track user actions/behavior on the Site.
You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies, though either of those actions may affect the use of our Site.
How Do We Use the Personal Information We Collect?
We use personal information we collect through the Site for the purposes described in this Policy or elsewhere on the Site. For example, we may use personal and other information we collect to communicate with the user and/or respond to user inquiries/problems.
What Steps Do We Take To Protect Your Information?
We take measures designed to protect your personal information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.
