1. Introduction.

Maintaining your privacy is one of our highest priorities. Accordingly, we have created this privacy policy (“Policy”) to explain our practices for the collection, use, and disclosure of your information as it relates to your use of our website and services (the “website”).

2. How We Collect Your Information

We may use a variety of methods to collect information from you, as described in this section below.

2.1. Our Website

When you use our website, it collects the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access our website, the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our website, the operating system you are using, the internet browser you are using, the sections of the website you visit, the website pages read and images viewed, and the content you download from the website. This information is used for website and system administration purposes and to improve our website.

2.2. Cookies, Web Beacons & 3rd Party Advertisements

We and the third parties we authorize may receive and store certain types of non-personally identifiable information whenever you interact with us by using "cookies," “web beacons” and analogous technology. "Cookies" are small files that are placed on your computer or your internet browser memory to enable the owner of the cookie to recognize your browser and to provide convenience and other features to you. It is important to note that the cookies that we use, or permit others to use, do not contain and are not tied to personally identifiable information about you.

Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on your site. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit Consumer Opt-out | NAI: Network Advertising Initiative.

You may be able to direct your internet browser not to allow cookies and you can typically delete existing cookies from your computer at any time. Please note, however, if you set such browser settings or delete existing cookies then some elements of our website may not function properly or be available to you.

2.3 Preference Based Advertising

We also work with and permit certain third parties, including, but not limited to advertising networks and website analysis firms, to place cookies on your computer or browser when you visit our website and/or when you view, click or otherwise interact with advertisements that are featured on our website. These third party cookies and analogous technology are used to gather non-personally identifiable information about your activities on our website and third party sites you may visit to serve you with advertisements that are relevant to your interests and preferences while you are on third party sites. Some of these third parties participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”), an industry self-regulatory program to give consumers a better understanding of and greater control over ads that are customized based on their online behavior across different web sites. To learn more and make choices about preference-based ads from participating third parties, please visit the DAA website at THE SELF-REGULATORY PROGRAM FOR ONLINE BEHAVIORAL ADVERTISING.

We encourage you to read the privacy policies of those other websites to learn how they collect and use your personal information.
