Our policy is to respect the privacy of visitors to our website. This policy describes how we gather information from our site's visitors and what we do with it.
How We Collect Information
Our web server, like all web servers, will automatically recognize each visitor's Internet address (or "IP address"). This does not provide us with personally identifiable information. Our server logs will record page views and the serving of images and other files, and can associate those actions with particular visitor sessions, but this information is not tied to any individual visitor's identity. We use Google Analytics for this same purpose.
You can visit our website without revealing any information about yourself. Our site is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information about you (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and product preferences) unless you voluntarily provide this information, such as when you ask us to e-mail a friend or you provide this information when you fill out a "contact us" form.
How We Use Information
We automatically use electronic records to compile statistics about how collectively our visitors interact with our website. These statistics contain no personal information.
On certain pages, you may have the opportunity to provide personally identifiable information. When you voluntarily provide us with information about yourself, you consent to our use of it in accordance with this policy.
We use the personally identifiable information only for clearly stated purposes. For example, we may use your email address to respond to a question you have sent us. We never add email addresses to lists for purposes of additional communication, not do we share this information with third parties.
Unless otherwise required by law or if pertinent to a judicial or governmental investigation, personally identifiable information is not shared with other organizations or persons. Should we ever need to make an exception, we will say so at the point where you are giving the information.
Information submitted or provided to us by a website user or any person or entity regarding us or our products or services, including but not limited to ideas for new products or services or modifications to existing products or services, shall be deemed to be non-confidential, and we shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose and distribute such information to others without limitation or attribution.
Our site does not accept advertising.
