What Information Do We Collect?
We collect personal information from visitors to the Site such as name, mailing address, telephone number, company, e-mail address. Except as explained below, we only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via e-mail or other direct contact from you.  You are not required to create an account or register on the Site.
We also collect non-personally identifiable information, which does not personally identify you, in the following ways:
Surveys.  We may conduct online consumer surveys or ask for information from persons completing online forms. This information is provided voluntarily. When such information is not combined with any personal information, such information is considered to be non-personally identifiable information, as it does not personally identify you or any other user.
Aggregated Information.  Additionally, we may aggregate personal information in a manner such that the information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site, for example, by using personal information to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular telephone area code. Such aggregate information is considered non-personally identifiable information for purposes of this Policy.
“Clickstream” Data.  The Site automatically collects certain data concerning its interactions with visitors that facilitates Site operation, management and planning. Such data may include the IP address of your computer, the date and time of an online request, the type of browser and operating system used by your computer, the time required to download information you requested, and error codes generated while your browser is in contact with the Site.
We may use "cookies" on the 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. We may use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you’ve visited us before or if you are a new visitor, and cookies to help us understand what areas of the Site are of greatest interest to you.  Cookies may also be used to enhance your online experience by saving your preferences and password so you do not have to re-enter this information each time you visit the Site.  Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on the Site. Some of our business or promotional partners may use cookies on the Site.  However, we have no access to or control over these cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can configure your browser to stop accepting new cookies, to notify you when you a new cookie is received, and to disable existing cookies.  If you choose to disable cookies in your browser, however, you may not be able to take full advantage of all the Site’s features.

Web Beacons; Third Party Web Analytics.  Certain pages on this Site may contain "web beacons" (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). Web beacons are used for internal purposes, such as to obtain the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, and the type of browser used to view the page. We may also retain service providers who use web beacons to assess the effectiveness of our e-mail communications and learn what pages our visitors viewed.
We may use third party web analytics services, such as those of Adobe Analytics and Google Analytics, to measure the effectiveness of our advertising and determine how visitors use this Site. These service providers’ tools, including cookies and web beacons, allow us to collect information such as the state and zip code from which our visitors come and the IP addresses of our visitors' computers.  Users that do not want their data reported by the Google Analytics JavaScript can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on (please see link directly below). This add-on instructs the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) to prohibit sending information to Google Analytics. The browser add-on is available for most modern browsers.  Please be aware that the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on does not prevent information from being sent to the Site itself or to other web analytics services.  Learn more about the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on
