Privacy Statement

We strongly believe in protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personally identifiable information that refers or relates to our Website users ("You"). We explain what information We collect about You, how We use the information We collect, how We protect the security and confidentiality of such information, and what You should do if You have any questions or comments.

What Information is Collected?

Our Website collects or may collect information in the form of cookies. A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to Your hard drive when You visit the website. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that identifies Your computer to the Website. But cookies can only identify You as a unique, but anonymous, user of the Website unless You choose to submit personally identifiable information through the Website.  If cookies are used, We use them as a mechanism for creating a user "session," identifying a unique user as he or she moves among pages of the Website. Combined with Website usage logging, We may track user Website use patterns, such as whether You click on various links throughout the Website. We use the cookie information to identify Your computer in Our database and to track the pages You visit on the Website. However, a cookie can't read data off Your hard disk. Further, We cannot read cookies created by other websites, nor can other websites read cookies created by Us. WE DO NOT store any personally identifiable information in a cookie, such as Your name or contact information.

At our Website, We don't collect personally identifiable information about You unless You voluntarily provide it to Us. If You choose to post feedback on the Website or reach Us by email, You may be asked to provide such information as Your name, address, email address, telephone and fax number, business name, business address, e-mail address, telephone and fax number. You may also be asked certain questions about You and/or Your business, which will help Us to better meet Your needs and respond to Your inquiries regarding the Website and/or Our various services featured on the Website. If You choose to provide personally identifiable information to Us, You represent and warrant that all such information is true, accurate and complete, and in compliance with our Website Terms of Use.

General Use of This Website.

We continually seek to improve the quality of our Website and services so that We may better meet Your needs. As part of this process, the information We collect from our Website users and data regarding Your use of this Website is used in the following ways:

By Us - We use personally identifiable information that You provide to Us (such as Your name, address, phone and fax numbers, email address and other similar types of information specific to You) to statistically analyze Website usage and to improve the Website and our product and service offerings. We may use Your email address, mailing address, phone or fax number to contact You regarding feedback that You may have provided or information that You actively requested from Us. Further, We may be required to disclose personally identifiable information by court or administrative order such as a law, regulation, search warrant, or subpoena. We may also provide third parties with aggregate information regarding users of the Website. For example, We might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users of our Website, the number of times a Website link was selected by users, and aggregate information on the types of the activities such users conducted while on Our Website. This aggregate information will contain nothing that can identify You, and will not contain any personally identifiable information that refers or relates to You.

By Third Parties - We provide no personally identifiable information about You to any third party without Your express consent. Further, without Your consent, no third party will contact You using personally identifiable information You gave to Us through the Website.

Security for Personally Identifiable Information.

We take the security of personally identifiable information very seriously. Our Website and database servers are hosted in a secured physical and network environment. Reasonable efforts are made to secure web servers, networks, host operating systems and databases against unauthorized access. Please remember that the security measures taken above are not foolproof; no website can guarantee that personally identifiable information will be protected in all situations. Therefore We can only state that We will make a reasonable effort to protect from unauthorized access the information that You provide.

Updating Your Personal Information and Contacting Us.

You can always contact Us in order to: (i) update the personally identifiable information You have provided; or (ii) direct Us to render inactive on our systems all personally identifiable information that refers or relates to You.
