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 our Site, we may 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”). We also use “cookies” to collect Traffic Data in order to customize content specific to your interests and make your navigation of our 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 may 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 our Site. We may also use temporary or “session” cookies to help you learn more about and/or order our services.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but please note that you may at any point in time change your browser settings to stop receiving new cookies or request to be asked each time whether you wish a cookie to be installed onto your hard drive. If you reject our cookies, you may still access our Site, but some features may not work properly on your device or may prompt you to provide additional forms of authentication during your session.
Web Beacons: Web beacons (also known as “web bugs”) 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 may use web beacons (or clear GIFs) on our Site or 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 may be linked to your personal information.
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 may keep track of IP addresses to troubleshoot technical concerns and to maintain website safety and security, such as by reviewing your IP address in combination with your personally identifiable information for credit fraud protection and risk reduction. In addition, we may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer this Site, track traffic patterns, and gather demographic information for aggregate use.
Log Files: We may collect information in the form of 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 our 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.
Responding to Do Not Track Signals: At this time, our 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.
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/.
We implement various security measures throughout this Site, such as SSL technology, in accordance with industry standards to protect the security of your personally identifiable information both online and offline.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to the Site. Any transmission of information, including personally identifiable information, is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on this Site.
