Information That the Company Collects:
- Collection of Personal Information:
Personally Identifiable Information: Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you personally (such as, but not limited to, your name, address, phone number, or e-mail address). Providing personally identifiable information is voluntary. You may, however, not be able to use the full functionality of this Site if you do not provide certain information.
We collect personally identifiable information that you provide during your use of the Site, including:
- information you provide when you sign up for any interactive aspects of our Site;
- information collected when you contact us via online forms (providing feedback, support queries, requests for information, etc.) or offline methods (e.g., telephone).
- Collection of Technical Information: This Site may also collect technical information regarding your computer and operating systems, such as your Internet Protocol address, domain name and system configurations and settings.
In order to collect the anonymous data described in the preceding paragraph, we may use temporary “cookies” that remain in the cookies file of your browser until the browser is closed.
The Company collects this information in four ways: directly from our web server logs, from the user, with cookies, and with web beacons or GIF files.
- Web Server Logs:
When you visit our Site we may track information to administer the Site and analyze its usage.
Examples of information we may track include:
- Your Internet protocol address.
- The kind of browser or computer you use.
- Number of links you click within the Site.
- State or country from which you accessed the Site.
- Date and time of your visit.
- Name of your Internet service provider.
- Web page that linked you to our Site.
- Pages you viewed on the Site.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
The Company may share aggregated site statistics, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our Site except to enhance or enable full use of the site. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. Most Web browsers can be set to notify you when an HTML cookie is placed on your computer. You can manually delete HTML cookies and set most browsers to refuse to accept HTML cookies, although doing so may affect your website experience. Likewise, most mobile devices allow you to disable the ability for geo-location information to be collected from your mobile device. The help function on most browsers and mobile devices contains instructions on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies, disable cookies entirely, or disable the collection of geo-location data. You need to set each browser on each device you use to surf the Web. Thus, if you use multiple browsers (e.g., AOL, Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.), you should repeat this procedure with each one. Similarly, if you connect to the Web from multiple devices (e.g., work and home), you need to set each browser on each device. The IAB website at www.allaboutcookies.org tells you how to remove cookies from your browser. Further details are provided below about our cookie usage.
If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings, then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Site.
- Personal Information from Users
For some types of use related to the Site, we will ask for information such as your name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, and other information relevant to your use of the Site. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, we may need such information in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting. We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to non-affiliated parties without your permission except to the extent necessary to provide the products and services, as described below.
- Use of Web Beacons or GIF files
The Site may contain electronic images known as web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow the Company to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. The Company may include web beacons in promotional email messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
Some of these web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site. The Company prohibits web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.
How We Use, Share and Disclose Personal Information That We Collect via This Site
Any personal information you provide and the personalized data you create and save on the Site are used to provide services to you to inform you of products, services or opportunities that may be available through the Company.
