We’re Committed to Your Privacy
Maintaining your trust is important to us. As such, we do not collect or store personally identifiable information on you other than what you voluntarily provide. When you sign up for services or newsletters, communicate with us, enter a contest, engage in a promotion, or send us an email, you provide information we may collect. Such information may include your name, address, and email. We treat all information you provide as confidential. Further, we do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent, except as necessary to provide you with the services offered by us or to comply with the law. Examples of such services include, but are not limited to, third parties providing email facilitation and hosting.
Additional information you voluntarily provide to us (e.g., via a survey), such as household income range, gender, product and service preferences, and other information that does not identify you personally is used to improve our products and services.
Website Analytics and Hosting
We also use anonymous information to analyze our Site traffic. In addition, we may use anonymous IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Site, or to display content according to your preferences. Web host servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Site may also gather anonymous aggregate “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but which may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
To be completely transparent, we disclose to you whether third parties can acquire and track your personally identifiable information through our Site. Google and other sites can track you through this Site as we use their services for social media and business purposes. Google participates in the NIA opt-out program at this link if you no longer want them to track your online movements. Many social media channels also use tracking, so you’re advised to check individual policies of the sites you frequent if this is a matter which concerns you.
