- Information We collect and how it is used
The personal information that We may collect about You broadly falls into the following categories:
(a) Information that You provide voluntarily
Our Website may ask You or allow You to provide personal information. For example, We may ask You to provide details by which You are identified and can be contacted by Us, such as to provide a response or quote to You or for another or other reasons. The Website may allow You to submit questions or comments or Your needs, specifications, requirements, or payment information to Us.

Among the information that We collect automatically may be technical information such as Your IP address, device type, unique device identification numbers, browser type, and geographic location. We may collect information also regarding how You interacted with Our Website, including what pages You accessed and the links, if any, that You clicked. This information can provide benefits both to You and Us in that it may permit Us to understand who is accessing the Website, from where do visitors come, and what content was of interest to the visitors. We may use this information for operational, performance measurement and other business purposes including developing and delivering products that customers wish to purchase and maintain, detecting and preventing fraud and to help us deliver more relevant marketing messages on our Website. This information may also be used to tailor the content and any other advertising that You see, understand advertising effectiveness, assess the effectiveness of our Website, respond to requests about navigation issues on Our Website, and establish, monitor, and maintain customer accounts and billing records. Overall, with this information, We may be able to make the experience better and more efficient for visitors such as You.
(c) Information that We obtain from third party sources
From time to time, We may seek and obtain personal information about You from one or more third party sources such as from the third party sources that have Your consent or are legally permitted or required to provide this personal information to Us. To illustrate, when You purchase products or apply for service from Us, We may obtain credit information about You from outside credit reporting agencies to help Us with customer authentication and credit-related decisions. We may obtain other information from third party sources including demographic and interest data (such as gender, age range, education level, etc.).
(d) Information Collected for Tracking and Customization (Cookies)
A cookie is a small file that a website transfers to Your computer to allow it to remember specific information about Your session while You are connected. Your computer will only share the information in the cookie with the website that provided it, and no other website can request it.
There are two types of cookies:
- Session: Session cookies last only as long as the visitor’s web browser is open. Once the browser is closed, the cookie is deleted. Session cookies may be used for technical purposes such as to enable better navigation through the site, or to allow visitors to customize their preferences for interacting with the site.
- Persistent: Persistent cookies are saved on a user’s hard drive in order to determine which users are new to the site or are returning, and, for repeat visitors, to block recurring invitations.
If You do not wish to have session or persistent cookies stored on Your machine, You can turn cookies off in Your browser. You may still have access to all information and resources at the Website. However, turning off cookies may affect Website functioning. Be aware that disabling cookies in Your browser may affect cookie usage at other websites that You may visit.

We do not knowingly market to or solicit personal information from children under the age of 13 without obtaining verifiable parental consent.
4. Information security and data retention
We strive to have technical, administrative and physical safeguards in place to help protect against unauthorized access to, use or disclosure of customer information that We collect or store. We know the importance of protecting privacy and on the proper access to, use and disclosure of customer information. Under Our practices and policies, access to sensitive personally identifiable information is authorized only for those who have a business need for such access. Personal identifiable and other sensitive records are retained only as long as reasonably necessary for business, accounting, tax or legal purposes.
However, while We work hard to protect the personal information that We collect and store, no program is 100% secure. We cannot guarantee that Our safeguards will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use or disclose information from or about You.
If You become aware of a security issue, please contact Us so that We may work with You to address any problems.
