Collection of Information
In general, the Website may gather non-personal, non-identifying information (“Generic Information”) automatically through the use of log files or otherwise. Generic Information includes, but is not limited to, information about the Internet Protocol address assigned to your computer, browser type, Internet Service Provider, platform type, referral source, the number and frequency of visitors and the Web pages visited.
The information that you provide to the Website or that is automatically collected is not sold to other parties, but may be disclosed as we deem appropriate in connection with operating and/or providing services through the Website.
Internet Protocol addresses, or IP addresses, are unique numeric identifiers that are assigned to each computer browser accessing the Internet. An IP address, by itself, cannot identify you personally. However, when combined with other information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your IP address can be used to identify the computer accessing the Website. Under certain circumstances, recipients, their legal representatives, and/ or law enforcement authorities, may be able to combine this with information disclosed by ISPs to determine the source of a particular communication. By using this Website, you knowingly and voluntarily assume any risks associated with such disclosure.
Pages of the Website and our e-mails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons, also referred to as clear gifs. pixel tags and single-pixel gifs. Web beacons permit the Company, for example, to count the users who have visited those pages or opened an e-mail, and may be used for other related Website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and/or verifying system and server integrity).
The Website does not track, collect, or distribute personal or identifying information such as name, address, email address, telephone number, credit card information or any other information that might reasonably be used to identify users personally (“Personal Information”), except when such information is specifically and knowingly provided by you.

We may use Personal Information to market products and services from the Website and/or Company that we believe might be of interest to you. Our use of any such Personal Information shall be in accordance with applicable laws, rules, and regulations.
