Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to or collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you, such as our contact form or mail list signup. We do not and will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
By voluntarily giving us your information, you agree that we may use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization other than as necessary to fulfill your request (e.g., to join our mailing list, which is hosted by a trusted and well-known, regulations-compliant email newsletter service).
Your Access To and Control Over Information
In addition to the ability to opt out of future newsletters and special offers via the Unsubscribe link mentioned above, you may also opt out of any future contacts from us. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via email, or the phone number at the top of the website:
- See what data we have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data we have about you.
- Have us delete any data we have about you.
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
By contacting us via email for any of the reasons above, you implicitly grant us permission to respond to your email one time for the purpose of notifying you that we have received and acted according to your request, and that such a final email communication cannot be construed as a violation of your request that we no longer contact you.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
We do not currently collect credit card or other payment information via this website. Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the top or bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment, accessible only by authorized personnel.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
We utilize a third party to provide professional email newsletter services. When any website user signs up for our newsletter, we will share names and/or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide newsletter services only. (Namely, to host and maintain our business newsletter mailing list in a manner compliant with current CAN-SPAM act regulations.) Such third parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services. By signing up for our newsletter via this website or any other method, you implicitly grant us permission to share your information with our current newsletter services supplier.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site may request information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as your name), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site or the services we provide.
