We Collect Data You Provide
Personal Information. If you elect to provide information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”) such as your name, email, mailing address, or phone number, we will collect, use, and share it pursuant to this Policy and applicable law. If you contact us via email or phone, we will collect and retain that information in our business records to respond to you.
Data Automatically Collected
IP Addresses, Cookies, & Similar Tracking Technologies. When you use the Site, we and our Site vendors use technologies such as cookies (i.e., small pieces of data stored on your device’s hard drive by your browser), web beacons, pixel tags, and similar technologies to automatically collect internet protocol addresses assigned to the computers and other devices you use, your internet service provider, device ID number, approximate geographic location, browser type, Site pages visited, websites you access before and after visiting the Site, and data related to how and when you use the Site (e.g., date and time stamps, clickstream data, and data about search terms and websites that direct you to the Site). We may combine this data with Personal Information and data obtained from third parties.
The Site may use session, persistent, and flash cookies (local stored objects) to collect and store data about your preferences and navigation to, from, and on our Site. Session cookies are used to complete transactions and for other purposes such as counting visits to certain webpages. Session cookies are eliminated when you exit your browser. Persistent cookies may be stored on your computer by your browser. When you log in, persistent cookies tell us if you have visited the Site before or if you are a new visitor.
Flash cookies differ from browser cookies regarding the amount and types of data collected and how the data is stored. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove and cannot manage Flash cookies. To learn about managing your Flash cookie settings, visit the Flash player settings page on Adobe’s website here.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can disable this function, but disabling cookies may impact your use and enjoyment of the Site.
Do Not Track Requests. DUE TO THE AUTOMATIC COLLECTION OF DATA USING COOKIES, WE DO NOT HONOR “DO NOT TRACK” REQUESTS.
Analytics. We may occasionally enable and implement various analytics tools to collect and process data consisting of certain telematics about your use of the Site. These tools set and read cookies to collect the website from which you visited us from, the parts of our Site you visit, the date and duration of your visit, your anonymized IP address, information from the device (device type, operating system, screen resolution, language, country you are located in, and web browser type) you used during your visit. Our analytics vendor then uses this data to provide us with reports that we use to improve the Site’s structure and content.
Online Behavioral Advertising. We may occasionally use advertising networks and services provided by third-party vendors. These services collect data about your interactions with the Site and other websites across the internet and use such data to target personal content and advertisements for goods and services. The data collected may be associated with your Personal Information. The targeted content and advertisements may appear on the Site and on other websites and may be sent to you via email. Advertising networks often gather data about consumers who view advertisements to make inferences about a consumer’s interests and preferences, which enables the delivery of advertisements directly targeted to the consumer’s specific interests. This practice is often referred to as “online behavioral advertising.”
To change your preferences with respect to certain online ads and to obtain more information about third-party ad networks and online behavioral advertising, visit the National Advertising Initiative Consumer opt-out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Program. Changing your settings with individual browsers or ad networks will not necessarily carry over to other browsers or ad networks. As a result, depending on the opt-outs you request, you may occasionally still see our ads.
Social Media. We are active on social media, including Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram (“Social Media”). You may comment on Social Media regarding Company and our services.
Anything you post on Social Media is public information and will not be treated confidentially. We may post (or re-post) on the Site and our Social Media pages any comments or content that you post on our Social Media pages. YOU AGREE TO HOLD COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES HARMLESS AND WITHOUT LIABILITY FOR THE RESULTS OF ANY AND ALL CONTENT YOU POST ON COMPANY’S SOCIAL MEDIA.
Your use of Social Media is governed by the privacy policies and terms of the third parties that own and operate those websites and not by this Policy. We encourage you to review those policies and terms.
The Site may use advertising networks and services offered by Social Media to deliver advertising content. Use of these services requires Social Media to implement cookies or pixel tags to deliver ads to you while you access the Site.
