We may also use the personal information we collect for other business purposes such as to better understand customer needs, enhance relationships, or make appropriate offers.

 

This Online Privacy Policy applies only to the personal information that is collected on those public websites where we post this policy.

Contacting Us by Email with Questions or Comments
When you send us an email from our website, we may retain information such as the content, your email address, our response, and the text of any follow-up questions you may have. We may use this information, for example, to measure how effectively we address client concerns online, to personalize your experience, and to continuously improve our service to you.


Collection of Information through Web Technologies
We may automatically track and collect your IP address, domain server, the type of computer and type of web browser you are using and use "cookies" to (i) customize content specific to your interests, (ii) store your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you use the site. Any websites operated on our behalf are hosted and managed by other companies who may track and collect this information.


What are Cookies
"Cookies" are pieces of electronic information (specifically, a string of text) that your browser and your operating system store on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies can store a user's ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited or keep track of previous selections or purchases. Cookies can enhance the user's visit. The use of cookies is an industry standard-you'll find they are used by most major commercial websites.


How We Issue and Use Cookies
We issue and use cookies to enhance your visit and the services we offer on the site. The site consists of numerous pages of content. We want you to be able to find the information and offers that interest you, as quickly and easily as possible. The use of cookie technology helps us to achieve that objective. We issue and use cookies to keep track of the areas of the site that interest our visitors most. In doing so, we can determine areas of the site that are most popular and those that are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. Visitors to the site who accept cookies may be presented with targeted messages, offers, and ads on the site and via email that we believe would be of value, based on observed preferences. If you have registered as a member of the site and accept cookies, we can tailor your use to your personal preferences, and it is easier and faster to take advantage of the site’s benefits. If you have submitted your email address, you may receive targeted messages we believe you will find of value. Remember, you may request to be removed from your email subscription lists.


Your Choice to Accept or Deny Cookies
You can choose whether to accept or deny cookies; your browser on your computer is often initially set to accept cookies. However, you can choose to deny cookies and continue browsing the sites. Keep in mind that your choice to accept or deny a cookie is different from your choice to accept/deny email messages.


Sharing Personal Information Collected on our Website
We may share personal information from time to time when we may partner with other companies to provide co-sponsored or co-branded promotions, products and services and may share your information with our co-sponsor. For example, we may co-sponsor some sweepstakes or offering on our site with other companies or we may provide prizes for sweepstakes and offerings sponsored by other companies. If you enter one of these sweepstakes, we may share your information with our co-sponsor or the third party sponsor. When you use a credit card to purchase goods or services, we may share your information with the credit card company. Use of shared information is subject to third parties' policies.


We rely on service providers to help us deliver products and services, such as providing services in connection with our websites including appointments, processing credit card transactions, and administering sweepstakes and surveys.


During the course of our business, we may also share with third parties demographic and statistical information that is not personally identifiable.
