You’ll always know when we are collecting your personal information, because we only collect personal information that you voluntarily submit to us. You do not have to provide us with any personal information to access and/or use our website, but you may not be able to fully utilize all of the services on our website if you choose not to provide certain information. If you do choose to provide personal information through our website, we secure and retain that information.
When you access and/or use our website, we may also collect “non-personal information,” which is information that, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (your location, IP address, browser, viewing device, etc.). This information is collected through Google Analytics. Non-personal information may also include technical information, such as your IP address, the type of browser you are using, the website you visit immediately before and immediately after you visit our website, and other anonymous data involving your use of our website. Non-personal information may also include information that you provide through your use of our website.

How we use the information we collect:
Our services and website
We use your personal information to provide you any services that you may request or require, to communicate with you, to allow you to make full use of the services on this site. We use aggregated non-personal information about our users to understand our website’s demographics, such as the geographic distribution of our users, the age ranges of our users, or a combination of these or other demographics. We use the non-personal information we collect to analyze how our website are being used, and to improve the content of our website, online product offerings, and promotional efforts.
If you send us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personal information to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. However, aside from our reply to such an e-mail, it is not our standard practice to send you any emails unless you request a particular service that involves email communications or in order to provide customer support in connection with those products. There may be times when you will have the opportunity to subscribe to an e-mail list or electronic newsletter that will send information about our website to your e-mail address. However, we will provide you with the option to change your preferences and opt-out of receiving such communications.
Disclosure of information to third parties
We may disclose personal information when we are required or requested to do so by law, court order or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency; to enforce or apply our rights and agreements; or when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is necessary or advisable. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Security of the information we collect
The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to secure any personal information you submit to us. However, “perfect security” does not exist online, and there is always some risk in transmitting information electronically. This website takes reasonable precautions to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
