PERSONAL INFORMATION OUR COMPANY COLLECTS AND HOW IT IS USED
Introduction: Our company collects information in different ways from Visitors and Contacts who access the various parts of our Services and the network of Web sites accessible through our Service. We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Services, and generally, do not share this information with third parties.
However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below.
Registration: Contacts may be asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for our Services including name, address, telephone number, email address, and the type of personal computer being used to access the Services. The personal information collected from Contacts during the registration process is used to manage each Contact’s interactions with our firm. This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances.
We may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from personal information Contacts provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Contacts). As explained in more detail below, we may use this aggregated and non-identifying information to sell advertisements that appear on the Services.
Online Advertisements: Our company may display online advertisements. In those cases, we share aggregated and non-identifying information about our Visitors and Contacts collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers.
Responses to Email Inquiries: When Visitors or Contacts send email inquiries to our company, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. Our company does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.
Special Cases: It is our company’s policy not to use or share the personal information about Visitors or Contacts in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
However, we may disclose personal information about Visitors or Contacts, or information regarding your use of the Services or Web sites accessible through our Services, for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: law enforcement, or to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Child Online Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or Terms Of Service, or other user policies; to operate the Services properly; or to protect our company and our Contacts.
If you are a Visitor or Contact, we may use a cookie to save your settings and to provide customizable and personalized services. These cookies do not enable third parties to access any of your customer information.
Additionally, be aware that if you visit other Web sites where you are prompted to log in or that are customizable, you may be required to accept cookies.
Advertisers may also use their own cookies. We do not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them.

Our Company’s Commitment to Data Security: Services and Web sites we sponsor have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information.
