What Information Do We Collect?
Information You Volunteer. We collect the information You provide Us when You use the Website. You will provide Us with your personal information when You register as a Website user, use any of the Website features or tools or participate in certain activities sponsored by Us. The personal information We collect when You register may include: Your name; Your email address; Your home or business address; Your birthday, Your gender and a user ID and password.
Information Collected on the Website
Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser. We may collect information that is sent to Us automatically by Your Web browser when You use the Website, such as Your IP address, the address of the Web page You were visiting when You accessed the Website or an advertisement hosted by Us on a third party Website, information on Your operating system and browser, and the date and time of Your visit. The information We receive depends on the settings on Your Web browser.
The information provided by Your browser does not identify You personally. We use this non-personal information primarily to create statistics that help Us improve the Website. In addition, We may review Our server logs for security purposes, such as detecting intrusions into Our network. If We suspect criminal activity, We might share Our server logs — which contain visitors’ IP addresses — with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.
Information Collected Using “Cookies” and Other Web Technologies. We use “cookies,” and similar technologies to collect information and manage the Website. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on Your hard disk by a web server. Cookies cannot be used to install computer programs or deliver viruses to Your computer. We may use two types of cookies — “session cookies” and “persistent cookies.”
A “session cookie” assigns a randomly-generated, unique identification number to Your computer when You access the Website or advertisements hosted by Us on third party websites. A session cookie expires after You close Your browser. Generally, We use session cookies to collect information about the ways visitors use the Website. This information is known as “click-stream information.” Session cookies may also be used to facilitate Your interactions with the Website.
A “persistent cookie” does not expire when You close Your browser. A persistent cookie will stay on Your computer until it expires or You delete it. Each time You visit the Website, Our web server will recognize You by “searching” the information contained in these cookies. By assigning Your computer a persistent, unique identifier, We are able to create a database of Your previous choices and preferences. This permits Us to offer You a personalized experience when You use the Website. Assigning Your computer a persistent, unique identifier also helps Us keep a more accurate account of how many people visit the Website, how often they return, how their use of the Website may vary over time, and the effectiveness of Our promotional efforts.
Neither session cookies nor persistent cookies identify You personally. If, however, You access the Website by clicking on a link in an email We have sent You, We may link the information collected by Our cookies to information that identifies You personally. If You do not wish to receive cookies, You may set Your browser to reject cookies or to alert You when a cookie is placed on Your computer. You may also delete Our cookies as soon as You leave the Website. Although You are not required to accept Our cookies when You visit the Website, if You set Your browser to reject cookies, You will not be able to use all of the features and functionality of the Website.

We respect Your right to make choices about the ways We collect, use and disclose Your information.
