Privacy Policy

Introduction

Federal law requires that we tell you how we collect, use, share, and protect your personal information. Federal law also limits how we can use your personal information. Protecting the privacy and security of consumers’ personal information is very important to us.
This policy sets forth how we treat personal information that we collect and receive, if any, regarding your use of our products and services. Personal information includes information about you that is personally identifiable, such as your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. We may combine personal information collected from you with information from other services or third parties to provide a better user experience.
By using our web site, you consent to the collection and use of this information in the manner we describe herein.

Information Collection and Use

We automatically collect general statistical information about our site and visitors, such as IP addresses, browser type, language and version, pages viewed, date and time of visit, type of operating system used, URL, number of visitors, goods and services purchased, etc., but in doing so we do not reference you by individual name, email address, home address, or telephone number. We use this data in the aggregate to determine how much our customers use parts of our site so we can improve our site. We may use the information to provide the services that you have requested. We may also share information with third parties in certain other circumstances, including when complying with subpoenas, court orders or other legal process, preventing fraud, illegal activities or imminent harm, and ensuring the security of our network and services.  We may provide this statistical information to third parties, but when we do so, we do not provide personally identifying information without your permission.
We do not collect personally identifiable information about you such as your name, address, email or phone number.  We do not rent, sell, or share any information about you with other people under any circumstances except as set forth herein.  

Policy Regarding Children

We recognize the need to provide additional privacy protections when children visit this site.  The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") requires that we inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information of children under 13 years of age and that we obtain the consent of parents and guardians in order for children under 13 years of age to use certain features of our web site.
We do not collect personal information from children, and children can surf our site, view content, and post comments without any personal information being collected.
While we have no way of distinguishing the age of individuals who access our web site, we never knowingly ask a child under 13 to divulge personal information without first obtaining parental or guardian consent.  If you think that your child has provided us with personally identifying information without the necessary consent, the parent or guardian should contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
