Sale or Acquisition of Assets

If we or substantially all of our assets are acquired, your personally identifiable information will be one of the transferred assets. If we sell a business, we will include provisions in the selling contract requiring the purchaser to treat your personally identifiable information in a manner substantially similar to that which is required by our Privacy Policy in effect at that time. The provisions of this paragraph will apply also if we are sold as a part of bankruptcy proceedings.

If we purchase a business, the personally identifiable information received with that business will be treated in accordance with our Privacy Policy in effect at that time, so long as it is practicable and permissible to do so.

Traffic Data

Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for marketing purposes and for improving your experience on this Site. When you visit this Site, we automatically track and collect the following categories of information: (1) web beacons; (2) IP addresses; (3) log files; (4) domain servers; (5) types of computers accessing this Site; and (6) types of web browsers used to access this Site (collectively “Traffic Data”).

IP Addresses: An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a number assigned to each computer on a network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet. We keep track of IP addresses to troubleshoot technical concerns and to maintain website safety and security. In addition, we use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer this Site, track traffic patterns, and gather demographic information for aggregate use. When possible, we combine your IP address with personally identifiable information we have about you to recognize you.

Log Files: We collect log files that record website activity and gather statistics about web users’ browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously and help us determine (among other things) how many and how often users have visited this Site, which pages are visited, and other similar data (a.k.a., “navigational data”). We also use the log file entries for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online services we provide you. Log files are used internally only and are not associated with any particular user, computer, or browser.

Cookies and Other Technology

We use “cookies” to collect Traffic Data in order to customize content specific to your interests and make your navigation of this Site easier during subsequent visits.

Cookies: A “cookie” is a piece of data stored on your hard drive that enables us to track and target your preferences. Once placed on your device’s hard drive, the cookie will remain there until you remove it. We place a cookie on your device’s hard drive so we can recognize you as a return user to personalize and improve your experience on this Site. We also use temporary or “session” cookies to help you learn more about and/or order this Site.

Web Beacons: Web beacons (also known as “web bugs” and clear GIFs) are small strings of code that provide a method of delivering a graphic image on a web page or in an e-mail message for the purpose of transferring data. We use web beacons on this Site and include them in the e-mail messages we send you. We use web beacons for many purposes, including site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising e-mail auditing and reporting, and personalization. Information gathered through web beacons is linked to other information we have about you.

Responding to Do Not Track Signals: At this time, this Site does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from our users’ web browsers because we do not allow third parties to collect any of our users’ personally identifiable information for the purpose of tracking our users’ online activities.

Analytics: We may use Google Analytics to provide analytics services as described above. To learn more about how Google Analytics collects and processes data and the choices Google may offer to control these activities, you may visit support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245 and to opt out of Google Analytics you may visit tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
