Effective Date: July 11, 2016
We may collect personal information from you when you voluntarily provide it to us through a number of features available on this website. For example, we may ask you to provide personal information if you:
Your participation in any of these activities is voluntary and we will only use the personal information you provide for the purposes for which it was collected. We will not send you any online newsletters or similar e-mail communications unless you expressly consent to receive such communications from us. In addition, if you contact us through this website, we may ask you for personal information such as your name, address, phone number, or e-mail address so that we can respond to your questions or comments.
Internet tags, graphic tags and similar web beacon type functions allow us to count the number of users who have visited a particular web page or to access certain cookies. We may use web beacons on this website to count users and to recognize users by accessing our cookies. Being able to access our cookies allows us to personalize this website and improve your experience at this website.
Except as described below, we do not sell, transfer or otherwise disclose to third parties the personal information we collect on this website. At times we provide your personal information to third parties who provide services on our behalf. These entities may use the information solely in conjunction with the specific services they provide for us (e.g. responding to your question or comment; deployment of a consumer survey; investigation of a complaint, providing us with certain website traffic statistics as described above).
The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards (appropriate to the sensitivity of such information) designed to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure or access of the personal information we collect on this website. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us. All third parties that obtain personal information from us (e.g. service providers that perform functions on our behalf) are contractually required to protect your confidentiality and personal information in a manner consistent with this policy, and/or as required by law.
Some or all of the personal information we collect may be stored or processed on servers located outside your jurisdiction of residence, including in the United States, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, law enforcement officials and national security authorities in those jurisdictions according to laws in those jurisdictions. Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that country to maintain protections on the personal information that are equivalent to those that apply in the country in which you live.
We will destroy, erase or render anonymous personal information no longer required for the purpose(s) for which it was submitted, subject to any legal or business requirements to retain it. Unless otherwise specified at the time of collection, information that we collect from visitors to our website is rendered anonymous and retained only in aggregate form for the purpose of statistical analysis.
