When you visit the Site, we may collect technical information that does not, by itself, identify you by name. This information may include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, the address (or “URL”) of the web site that you came from before visiting the Site, which pages you visit on the Site, which browser you used to view the Site and any search terms you have entered on the Site. This technical data is used to measure and improve the effectiveness of the Site, to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Site, to see where Site traffic is coming from and to identify our users. We may also collect other non-personally identifiable information via the Site, such as Site usage activity and preferences, also known as demographic or profile data. We may combine the data described in this paragraph with your Personal Information.
A “cookie” is a small data file that a web site may send to your browser and that your browser may then store on your system. We may use session cookies, for example, to simulate a continuous connection – cookies let us “remember” information about your preferences and passwords and allow you to move within the Site without reintroducing yourself.
A “web bug” is typically a one-pixel, transparent image (although it can be a visible image as well), located on a web page or in an e-mail, which is retrieved from a remote site on the Internet enabling the verification of an individual’s viewing or receipt of a web page or e-mail message.

We may release certain Personal Information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves.

HOW DOES THE SITE SECURE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail.
We have no control over what information third parties track or collect, and we have no responsibility or liability for any tracking, data collection or other activities of third parties.
