What Information We Collect and How We Use It
Any information we collect on our site generally falls into the following categories:
Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets us know specifically who you are. In general, you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any Personally Identifiable Information. As a visitor, you may voluntarily provide Personally Identifiable Information (such as name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number) for the purpose of contacting you to respond to your comments or inquiries. In such event, we might maintain a record of your contact, including such Personally Identifiable Information, in a file specific to you. We use this information to provide better service in the event that you contact us again.Surveys and Promotional Activities: From time to time you may voluntarily provide Personally Identifiable Information to complete surveys and questionnaires or to participate in polls. We use this information to improve our products and services. We may also use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide you newsletters and other marketing information we think would be of particular interest to you concerning things such as new product offers or site features. But we always give you the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited promotional materials from us, and we will make every reasonable effort to honor such requests.
Aggregate Information: This refers to information that does not, by itself, identify you as a specific individual. Such information would include the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the web site that referred you to our site, your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web), your operating system and browser type, and any search terms that you enter on our site. Our web server aggregates this information in order to monitor the level of activity on our site, evaluate its effectiveness, and improve the content of our site in order to make your visit an easy and enjoyable experience.
