  • We will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information.

Cookies

We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

Google Analytics

We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site and our customer experience. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Service and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website and its forms, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. If you are not able to verify that the information is being transmitted securely or you do not feel comfortable sharing this information online, please contact us by phone instead.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Please note that electronic communication, particularly email, is not necessarily secure against interception. Please do not send us sensitive data (e.g., Social Security, bank account, or credit card numbers) by email or unsecured web form.

Service Providers

We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:

  • To facilitate our service;
  • To provide the service on our behalf;
  • To perform service-related services; or
  • To assist us in analyzing how our service is used.

We want to inform our users that these third parties may have access to your Personal Information. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf.
