What Information is Collected?

Our Website may collect information in the form of cookies. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on Your hard drive when You visit the Website. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that identifies Your computer to the Website. Cookies can only identify You as a unique, but anonymous, user of the Website unless You choose to submit personally identifiable information through the Website. We may use cookies as a mechanism for creating a user "session," identifying a unique user as he or she moves among pages of the Website.  This could include the storage of computer identifying information such as Your computer’s internet protocol address or media access control address of Your computer.  Combined with Website usage logging, We may track user Website use patterns, such as whether You click on various links throughout the Website. If We use cookies, We use the cookie information to identify Your computer in Our database and to track the pages You visit on the Website. However, a cookie can't read data off Your hard disk. Further, We cannot read cookies created by other websites, nor can other websites read cookies created by Us. WE DO NOT store any personally identifiable information in a cookie, such as Your name or contact information.

At Our Website, We don't collect personally identifiable information about You unless You voluntarily provide it to Us.  If You choose to post feedback on the Website or reach Us by email, You may be asked to provide such information as Your name, address, email address, telephone and fax number, business name, business address, e-mail address, telephone and fax number. You may also be asked certain questions about You and/or Your business, which will help Us to better meet Your needs and respond to Your inquiries regarding the Website and/or Our various services featured on the Website.

General Use of This Website.

We continually seek to improve the quality of Our Website and services so that We may better meet Your needs. As part of this process, the information We collect from You and data regarding Your use of this Website is used in the following ways:

By Us - We use personally identifiable information that You provide to Us (such as Your name, address, phone and fax numbers, email address and other similar types of information specific to You) to statistically analyze Website usage and to improve the Website and Our product and service offerings. We may use Your email address, mailing address, phone or fax number to contact You regarding feedback that You may have provided or information that You actively requested from Us. Further, We may be required to disclose personally identifiable information by court or administrative order such as a law, regulation, search warrant, or subpoena. We may also provide third parties with aggregate information regarding users of the Website. For example, We might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users of Our Website, the number of times a Website link was selected by users, and aggregate information on the types of the activities such users conducted while on Our Website. This aggregate information will contain nothing that can identify You, and will not contain any personally identifiable information that refers or relates to You.  Notwithstanding the above, in the case where We merge, sell Our business, or otherwise transfer operational control of Our business to a new owner, whether we do so directly or indirectly, You hereby authorize Us to transfer Your entire personal information to such purchaser, so long as such Purchaser agrees to abide by the terms of this policy.

By Third Parties - We provide no personally identifiable information about You to any third party without Your express consent (which consent may be provided by you electronically, via a selection on a web form or in another manner), except that if you are entering such information related to a User’s content, we may provide that User with Your information.  Further, without Your consent, no third party will contact You using personally identifiable information You gave to Us through the Website.  Please note that these policies apply only to the content provided by Us.

Security for Personally Identifiable Information.

We take the security of personally identifiable information very seriously. Our Website and database servers are hosted in a secured physical and network environment. Reasonable efforts are made to secure web servers, networks, host operating systems and databases against unauthorized access. Please remember that the security measures taken above are not foolproof; no website can guarantee that personally identifiable information will be protected in all situations. Therefore We can only state that We will make a reasonable effort to protect from unauthorized access the information that You provide, and that if we are notified of a breach, we will comply with applicable law, however, unless a statute provides You a right that cannot be waived, you specifically waive and covenant not to sue us for any data loss or breach of Our system resulting in loss of personal information.
