Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email, newsletter sign ups, contact forms, other forms or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.
This website tracks information about visits to the site. For example, statistics are compiled that show the daily requests received for particular files on a site, and what areas those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used to customize the website and marketing efforts, and may also be provided to others.
The site may use “cookies” or “web beacons.” A “cookie” is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may be stored on your computer, device or system. Cookies allow us to better serve visitors to our website by offering a tailored experience. A “web beacon,” also referred to as a “spotlight” or “pixel tag,” is used to recognize unique cookies and assist us in determining which advertisements bring users to a specific website or page. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. If you decline to accept the cookie, it will also disable the web beacon. Cookies collect information that might relate to you, your preferences, or your device. This information is used to make the site work as you expect it to, provide a more personalized web experience, connect you with social media networks, and tailor advertising to better match your interests.
Information we collect may be stored on third party data storage systems, and in those instances, we require those third parties to employ security practices and systems designed to protect the security of the information.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, 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.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline.

The computers/servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
