INFORMATION COLLECTED ON OUR WEBSITE
Personally Identifiable Information
Most of the information on our website is available to you, without collecting any information that is identifiable to you as an individual such as your name, email address, street address or telephone number (Personally Identifiable Information). We do collect Personally Identifiable Information that you provide voluntarily. Examples of instances where we collect Personally Identifiable Information include when you submit an online request for information, send us an e-mail message, or call us for information. You are not required to disclose any Personally Identifiable Information to us; however, portions of our website may not be available to you without your providing this information. We do not knowingly request, receive or collect any information from children.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Another type of information collected on our website is Non-Personally Identifiable Information, such as the type of Web browser you use, your domain name and links you may have used to locate our website, but which does not otherwise identify you individually.
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED
We use any Personally Identifiable Information you provide in a limited number of ways. We may use your Personally Identifiable Information to (i) provide you with information about us and our services or (ii) enhance or update our website or (iii) compile demographic statistics about users of the website. In addition, we may hire other companies to perform services on our behalf such as facilitating certain aspects of the website or sending you email. These companies may be supplied with or have access to your Personally Identifiable Information for the sole purpose of providing these services to us or on our behalf. On an aggregate basis only, we may collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information about users of the website. We will not disclose any Personally Identifiable Information as part of this aggregate information. Additionally, we may use IP address information to count and track aggregate visits to the website, to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the website. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. We also may use this information to assist us in the ongoing technical development of the website.
We will make every effort to preserve user privacy but we may need to disclose Personally Identifiable Information when required by law or if we have a good-faith belief that the action is necessary to comply with a pending judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on us or to protect our rights or the rights of others, to fight fraud, identity theft, to ensure the integrity and operation of our business and systems, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of our firm, its employees, members or others.
