This Website strives to maintain high standards for the protection of privacy over the Internet. The purpose of this statement is to explain to our visitors the type of information This Website obtains about visitors to our websites, how we gather it, how we use it, how long we retain it, and how visitors can restrict the use or disclosure of personally identifiable information.
Information we collect: The personal information This Website obtains about individual visitors to our websites is information the visitor supplies voluntarily. This means that you can visit our websites without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. To gauge the effectiveness of our websites, we do collect some generic information about our visitors. Our web servers automatically recognize a visitor's domain name (such as .com, .edu, etc.), the point of entry from which a visitor enters our site including web pages, User Guide CDs or banner ads, which pages a visitor visits on our site, and how much time a visitor spends on each page. This information is not linked to any personally identifiable information about the visitor.
This Website may collect personally identifiable information (such as name, email address, postal address) and/or third party personally identifiable information through this website. In some situations, such as when you order a product or service online or register for online services, This Website will collect billing information, such as your credit card number and billing address, and we may share this information with our third parties contractors (such as your credit card company solely for the purpose of processing the transaction you have requested). You may choose to provide individual information to This Website in a number of ways through our websites such as by:
Ordering a product or service from us;
Sending us email;
Registering to receive news, public policy updates, or information about our products or services;
Applying for a job or a grant; or
Entering a contest.
When visitors supply information about themselves for a specific purpose, This Website uses the information for that purpose (such as to provide the information the visitor has requested or to consider a visitor for a particular job). When visitors use our websites to order products or services, or to request information about them, we may use the individual information as we would use the same information obtained offline - for example, to evaluate your service needs and contact you regarding additional services you may find useful. You have the right to choose not to receive this information by notifying us of your preference.
Email: This Website does not send unsolicited "junk" email (spam). We may use email to communicate with our customers, to respond to visitors' emails, to confirm orders placed online, and to send information that a visitor has requested. If you receive an unwanted email from us, you can simply reply to ask not to receive future emails. This Website provides an unsubscribe function in its email campaigns in order for subscribers to opt out of further email communications from us.
Security: This Website uses Secure Socket Layer technology with encryption for the transmission of sensitive data such as credit card information.
This Website is committed to safeguarding customer privacy on all our websites. We require our employees to protect the privacy of information about our customers and expect our partners and suppliers to do so as well. You can feel confident that your individual information will be protected when you access your account or order products or services from our websites. We employ security measures to safeguard your transactions with us.
Compliance with laws: Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our websites.
Links to other websites: The This Website websites contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites. To improve the services it can offer you, This Website may opt to expand its capabilities for obtaining information about users in the future. This Website will update this privacy statement continually to ensure that you are aware of developments in this area.
Updating your information: Users may access, correct, and update information they have provided to This Website by visiting our websites and utilize our My Account page. In addition, you can contact up at our Contact Us page.
