Our Commitment to Privacy
We respect the privacy of your information. We provide this explanation about our online information practices as a show of our commitment to protect your privacy.
We do not sell or rent personally-identifying information collected during your use of our site without your permission.
The Information We Collect
At the time you register on our site, or you send us a communication, we collect and store such information as you may provide, which (depending on the circumstances) can include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, payment information and other personally-identifying information.
In addition, we may automatically gather general statistical information about our site and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, etc., but in doing so we do not reference you by individual name, e-mail address, home address, or telephone number. We use this data in the aggregate to determine how much our customers use parts of the site and so we can improve the site. We may provide this statistical information to third parties, but when we do so we do not provide personally-identifying information without your permission.
The Way We Use Information
We use your personally-identifying information to act on and improve our outreach and educational efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and to customize our site’s content, layout, and services.
We may use your information to deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interests, such as e-mail alerts and news updates. You can opt-out of receiving this information by so indicating in your registration/preferences file. We may ask you to provide us voluntarily with additional information regarding your personal or business interests, experience or requests which may use to customize our service for you.
We use your e-mail address, your mailing address, and phone number to contact you regarding administrative notices and communications relevant to your use of the site. We will not send you promotions or announcements unless you permit us to do so. You can opt-out of receiving such contact by so indicating in your registration/preferences file.
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to manage the site and to enhance our site based on the usage pattern data we receive.
No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Any information you transmit to us is done at your own risk.
Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example on message boards, through e-mail or in chat areas – that information can be collected and used by others.
How You Can Update, Correct or Delete Your Information
You can access the information that we collect online and maintain through normal updating methods. To update, correct or delete this information, you can contact us by emailing us here. Your account can be deleted or deactivated, but doing so will result in your not being able to access member services.
