Non-personally identifiable information we collect

Cookies/Web Server Logs: Similar to other commercial websites, our Site uses a standard technology called “cookies” and web server logs to collect information about how our Site is used. Cookies are a feature of web browsing software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a Site. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by the user’s web browser and hard drive. Information collected through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent on our Site, and the sites visited immediately before and immediately after our Site. This information is collected in aggregate form. None of it is associated with you as an individual.

You can, of course, disable cookies on your computer by indicating this in the preferences or options menus in your browser. However, some parts of our Site may not function properly if you disable cookies. If you have any questions about disabling cookies, please consult your browser provider/manufacturer.

Third Party Services: We may use services hosted by third parties, such as Google Analytics, to assist in providing our services and to help us understand how our websites are used. These services may collect information sent by a browser as part of a web page request, including IP addresses or cookies. If these third-party services collect information, they do so anonymously and in aggregate to provide us with useful information, such as site trends, without identifying individual visitors. Please see “Cookies” in the above section for information on how to control the use of cookies on your computer.

How do we use the information we collect?

We use your personally identifiable information to provide you with the information or content you request and, in some cases, to contact you about our programs, products, services or features. If you no longer wish to receive press releases or any other type of information from us, you may send us an e-mail via our “Contact Us” link or use our Email Notification form to change your preferences; or follow the “unsubscribe” link provided in the e-mails you receive.

We use non-personally identifiable information collected in aggregate form on our Site to better understand your use of the Site and to improve your experience and satisfaction. We may, for example, use the information to improve the design and content of our Site or to analyze the programs and services we offer.

We may hire other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Our employees, agents and contractors who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect the information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.

We may permit access to your personally identifiable information when we are legally required to do so, in order to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Site, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights, or to protect the rights and safety of visitors to this Site or the public. In such cases, information is provided only for a limited purpose.

We will not share your personally identifiable information in ways unrelated to those described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use or prohibit such unrelated uses.
