Privacy StatementLast Revised: February 21, 2008
We respect your privacy and recognize the need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information you may share with us (the phrase "personally identifiable information" or "personal information" means any information by which you can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, etc.). The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to inform you how we may use personally identifiable information or personal information collected from you when you visit our website and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to review and correct, the information collected. Because we may revise our privacy policies from time to time, you should periodically visit this page to review the then current Privacy Statement.
How We Collect Information
In general, you can visit many of our website pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit our website and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
There may be times when we ask you to provide certain personal information about yourself, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, etc. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice; we collect only the personal information that you provide to us. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to access certain services, offers, and content on our website.
How We Use the Information We Collect
We use the information we automatically receive from your Web browser to see which pages you visit within our website. We can then develop statistics that are helpful to understanding how our website is used by our visitors. This statistical data is interpreted by us in our continuing effort to present website content that visitors are seeking in the format they find most helpful.
When we receive personally identifiable information, we may use it for reasonable business purposes, such as contacting you, via e-mail or regular mail, to provide you with information we believe may be of interest. If you e-mail us, you are voluntarily releasing information to us. We will use your e-mail address to respond to you.
Third-Party Use of Information
We will not sell, share, or otherwise distribute your personally identifiable information to third parties except as provided herein. Specifically, personally identifiable information may occasionally be transferred to third parties who act on our behalf, or in connection with our business, for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which the data was originally collected. Where disclosure of personally identifiable information to a third party is likely or necessary, further explanation may be provided, where appropriate, at such collection points as to the intended use of the data. We will require that such third parties protect the information and, where appropriate, we will contractually require them to process data transferred only for the purposes expressly authorized by us.
Because of the nature of the Internet, we may transmit the information to another country, but remaining within our system, for purposes other than direct marketing, such as for storage, or because of where our servers are located. We may also use the information to investigate security breaches or cooperate with authorities pursuant to a legal matter. We may remove the personally identifiable information and use the other information for historical, statistical, or scientific purposes. Our website contains links to other websites. Be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of any web sites that you visit through a link on our website.
