Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on the Site. We collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
Like many Site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on these pages, and other statistics. In addition, we may use third party services, such as Google Analytics, that collect, monitor, and analyze Log Data.
We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us and to send periodic newsletters and other communications related to our business. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as we deem necessary to respond to your request or inquiry, to facilitate the sending of newsletters and similar communications, to protect our business interests, or as required by law.
Your Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time by using the opt-out link provided in emails we send. You may correct any inaccuracies you identify in your information by emailing a detailed request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Site, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon in your web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, sending email newsletters or responding to your inquiries) are granted access to personally identifiable information you have provided to us. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use “cookies” on this Site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a Site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our Site and identify repeat visitors to our Site. Cookies can enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our Site.
This Site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Surveys & Contests
From time to time our Site may request information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code and age level). Contact information will be used to notify winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use of this Site, gauging user interest, and similar metrics.
