We collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
When you use our website, we also may collect information that by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you (“Non-Personally Identifiable Information”). Non-Personally Identifiable Information may include user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, demographic information and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our website. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is used to help us understand who uses our website and to improve and market our website in general.
The following is a description of the areas and/or manners in which we primarily collect information about you.
We collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information passively using “cookies.” “Cookies” are small text files that are placed on your computer in order to identify your web browser and the activities of your computer on our website and other websites. Cookies are used to personalize your experience on our website, to assist you in using our website, and to allow us to statistically monitor how you are using our website to help us improve our services.
You do not have to accept cookies to use our website. Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. Most browsers offer instructions on how to do so in the “Help” section of the toolbar. While you are not required to accept our cookies to access our website, if you reject cookies, certain features or resources of our website may not work properly and you may experience some loss of convenience.
We also collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information through our Internet log files, which record data such as user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our website. This information may be used to analyze trends, to administer our website, to monitor our website’s use, and to gather general demographic information. We may link this information to Personally Identifiable Information for these and other purposes such as personalizing your experience on our website.
