    We collect information you provide directly to us, such as when you fill out a form, send us an email, or request information. The types of information we collect may include your name, email address, and phone number.
    When you visit the Site, some information is automatically collected, such as your computer’s IP address, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Site or Service, “referring URL” (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the Site), the pages from which you navigate to and from the Site, and the time you spend on the Site. We collect this information passively using technologies such as standard server logs, cookies, and clear GIFs (also known as “Web beacons”).


We are not in the business of selling personal information about our users to third parties. We may disclose information about our users, including personal information, to trusted third-party service providers (such as data storage and processing providers) that assist us in our work. We limit the personal information provided to these service providers to what is reasonably necessary for them to perform their work for us.

We may use information that you provide to us or that we collect automatically for various purposes, including:

  • To administer, operate, and improve our Site;
  • To respond to an email, inquiry, or request sent by you;
  • To send you newsletters and other communications in order to provide you with information you request or that we think may be of interest to you. You may opt out of such communications at any time by following the instructions in each newsletter or other communication;
  • To prevent fraud and to ensure the safety and security of the Site;
  • To comply with applicable legal obligations, such as responding to a subpoena or a court order, or to protect our rights.

In addition, information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, or similar transaction, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, in which personal information could be transferred to third parties as one of our business assets.


Cookies are small amounts of data that may be placed on your device when you visit a website. Like many companies, we use cookies on our Site to track information about your use of our Site, such as which pages you visited, the date when you last looked at a specific webpage, or to recognize you as you click through pages on our site.

Most web browsers can be set to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, notify you when a cookie is set, or delete cookies. Each browser is different, but you should be able to find out how to change your cookie preferences by selecting the browser’s “help” menu.

Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit our Site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to our Site.

We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable infor­mation.

Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to our Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use. To opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page.


“Do Not Track” is a setting available in most web browsers setting that asks a web application to disable its tracking of an individual user.
