What We Collect and Where
While you browse through the website and read the information contained on the web pages, we may gather certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. For example, we may automatically gather the Internet domain you connected from (such as “aol.com” or “spa.net”), the IP Address from which you access our website (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web), and the date and time you accessed our website and the pages you visited.
We may collect nonpublic personal information from you when you voluntarily provide personally identifiable information to us through our website, such as when requesting more information or signing up for an event or accessing discussion groups or secured areas. We limit use of such information to the purposes for which the information was provided.
If you send an electronic mail (e-mail) message that includes personally identifiable information, for example, in an e-mail message containing an inquiry, we will use that information to respond to your inquiry. Remember that e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. If your communication is very sensitive, you should not send it electronically unless it is encrypted or our website indicates the particular area is secure.
We may use “cookies” to improve our service to you. Cookies may help us recall a previous visit. The cookies we use do not collect personally identifiable information, and we do not use them to determine your identity. If you are not comfortable with this use, you may configure your browser to be notified when cookies are to be received and to provide you with the option of refusing cookies. However, refusing cookies may limit your ability to use our website in its entirety.
Our employees may view the information that you submit to us in order to perform their jobs and provide services to you. We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information in order to provide information or services to you. We do not share nonpublic personal information to third parties who are not affiliated with us unless the law allows us to do so.
