Privacy Policy

As a part of this site’s Terms Of Use, we recognize and respect the privacy of this site’s visitors. To assure the continued privacy and confidentiality of your personal information, we observe these practices and procedures:

Information We Collect

As a general policy, we do not automatically collect personal information from users of this Web site. We do collect and store information on the domain used to access this Web site, the Internet (IP) address of the Web site from which a user links to this Web site and the date and time of the visit to this Web site. This information is used only to measure the traffic patterns of this Web site so that we may better serve users in improved design and site navigation.

Member-Only Areas

Personal identification (for example, your username and password) is collected when a user has registered to enter the users-only area of the Web site. This information enables us to regulate access of this information to those who are approved for such access. We do not share this information with anyone, beyond that which is stated elsewhere in this policy.

Cookies

Portions of this Web site may require the use of cookies (which are small pieces of information a Web site stores on a visitor’s Web browser to remind the site about the user the next time he or she visits the site). We do not store confidential or sensitive information in cookies. We use cookies only to enhance users’ session and ease navigation through this Web site. Cookies cannot be used to capture a user’s email address, obtain data from the user’s hard drive or gain confidential or sensitive information about the user. Additionally, cookies cannot be read by a Web site other than the one that set the cookie. Some Web sites, however, use cookies to obtain information from the user’s browser. The user has the option to set his or her browser to notify before accepting a cookie to control whether a cookie is accepted or rejected.

Online Forms

We provide online forms to better serve the needs of users, allow users to contact us, or to gather survey information. The information you share on these forms is voluntary. We will never share any personal information we gather in these forms unless you give explicit consent. We encourage you to never share information you’re not comfortable with sharing.

Email Communication

Personal information transmitted to us by you may be used by us to respond to inquiries for information or improve the service the site provides. Since e-mail communication may not be secure against interception by unauthorized individuals, users may want to seek alternatives to email when it is necessary to provide sensitive or personal information. Likewise, we will not transmit sensitive or personal information that can compromise or violate a user’s privacy when communicating via e-mail.

Newsletters, Mailing Lists, and Discussion Lists

We reserve the right to send e-mail to users who have indicated their desire to receive e-mails within their profile record. All subscribers have the ability to unsubscribe at any time by adjusting this preference within their profile. We reserve the right to send important website-related e-mails to
all registered users, regardless of their profile preferences. We hold sole discretion regarding what qualifies as “important”.

Public Forums

Users of our public forums are entitled to the same protections as stated elsewhere in this policy. However, you must remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your own personal information. We will not be held liable for your own disclosure of protected information.

Information We Disclose

We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about users, former users and other individuals who do business with us to anyone, except as permitted or required by law.

Contact Us With Questions Or Concerns About Your Privacy

Users and individuals who do business with us may contact us at any time with questions regarding this policy. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time and post a revised Privacy Statement without notice.
