Some parts of our Site use cookies, pixel tags (also known as “web beacons”), and other technologies to collect this information about your general internet usage.

We use Google Analytics to collect information about your use of the Site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often you visit the Site, what pages you visit, and what other websites you use prior to visiting the Site. We use the information we receive from Google Analytics to improve the Website. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this Site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with Personal Information. Although Google Analytics stores a permanent cookie on your Web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use available at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html and the Google Privacy Policy available at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html.

  • To process and administer your requests for information;

  • To improve our content and product offerings; and
  • To customize Website content, layout, and Services

We may communicate with you through your email address in response to your submission of any inquiry submitted through the Website. We may use any feedback you provide to us for any purpose, but we will not include your Personal Information with such feedback without your prior consent.

We may use your Personal Information to resolve disputes, investigate problems, or enforce the Terms of Use. At times, we may review status or activity of multiple users to do so. We may disclose or access information whenever we believe in good faith that the law so requires or if we otherwise consider it necessary to do so to maintain and improve our services.

Security

We employ reasonable and current security methods to prevent loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction of information. Whenever you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information online, for example, in public areas or through email, that information can be collected and used by others. No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secured. As a result, while we try to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Sharing Your Information

We will not sell or rent Personal Information collected during your use of the Site without your permission. We may from time to time employ third parties to perform functions on our behalf. We may share Personal Information with third parties in order for them to provide content or complete a requested transaction or otherwise perform the services. We may also share your Personal Information with our affiliates, but we will not share it with unaffiliated third parties for direct marketing purposes.

Such third parties have access to Personal Information as needed to perform their functions, but they are not allowed to use it for other purposes.

When you provide us with Personal Information we also may use and share your Personal Information to contact you, including via email, to thank you for providing your request, to conduct satisfaction surveys, or for other administrative purposes related to your request.

Other Circumstances: We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties if we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of any or all of our business and/or our assets to a third party, or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to:

  • comply with applicable laws, regulations, legal process (such as a subpoena), or enforceable government request;
  • enforce applicable Terms of Service [LINK], including investigation of potential violations of such Terms, or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; and
