We respect the privacy of our users. We will NOT sell or provide any of your personal information to any third party, unless we believe in good faith that the law requires it. This privacy statement is designed to help you understand what information we gather and what we do with the information.
The information we collect generally falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our websites through optional registration; and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our websites.
To make use of certain features of our websites (such as email and other interactive forums), visitors need to register and provide certain information as part of the registration process. We may ask, for example, for your name and address, the name and address of your company affiliation, your home and business phone numbers, your email address(es), certain financial information, and any other information which may be useful. The information you supply will help us to tailor our websites to the needs and interests of our visitors.
To help make our websites more responsive to the needs and interests of our visitors, we keep track of the pages visited by each user. We aggregate this data with the data on the pages visited by other users to track overall visitor traffic patterns.
Our web servers automatically collect some information about you when you request pages from our web servers, including your IP address. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data (such as the webpages you request) can be sent to you. Your IP address does not identify you personally. We use your IP address to, among other things, help diagnose problems with our web servers, and to administer our websites.
We may invoke a standard feature of browser software called a "cookie" to better meet the needs of our visitors and to better administer our websites. You can set your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of certain features enjoyed by other visitors to our website.
