Minors and children
We do not knowingly collect information from anyone under the age of 13. We encourage parents to talk to their children about the Internet and believe that  children should always get their parents’ permission before sending any information about themselves over the Internet. Please note that this Site is intended  for users over the age of 18. If you are under the age of 13, you are prohibited from using this Site and should not provide us with any personally identifying information.

What information we collect and how we use it
Like most websites, we collect personal and non-personal information from visitors to the Site. Personal information is any information that personally  identifies you, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, etc. Non-personal information is information that does not personally identify you, such as your browser type or how long you spend on the Site. Personal and non-personal information are discussed in more detail below.

We only collect personal information about you through this Site when you choose to provide us with the specific piece of personal information. For example,  certain forms, online surveys, and other sections of the Site may ask you to provide personal information. In addition, we may also collect personal information when you contact us via email though the Site.

We use personal information to provide you the products and services you request, mailing our newsletters, market research, and auditing and analyzing ways  to improve our products and services.

New subscribers to our mailing list must submit their names and e-mail addresses. This is the minimum information needed to allow us to properly manage  the list. This information is not publicly viewable and is not shared with third parties, other than in the limited circumstances described below. We will not sell or license your email address to third parties. You will be removed from our list upon request.

Non-Personal Information

We collect and use non-personal information for a variety of reasons, including to improve the Site, to provide more convenience when you visit the Site, to  determine interest in topics, for system management and market research, to diagnose problems with the Site or our hardware, and to administer and improve the Site.

This Site may utilize “cookies” and other technologies to collect non-personal information about visitors, including which parts of the Site are most visited and how much time visitors spend on each section of our Site.

We also may use “click-through URL” links to connect the Site to other websites. When you click on one of these URLs, we track the click-through data.

We also gather certain information about visitors to the Site automatically and store it in log files. This information includes clickstream data, Internet  Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system used, and time stamp.

Disclosure of Information
We take your privacy very seriously and do not rent or sell your personal information under any circumstances.

In some instances, we may share your personal information with local, state, or federal agencies and/or our third party service providers. Many state and  federal agencies require us to provide certain personal information to them as a legal requirement, funding prerequisite, or other reason. Our third party  service providers are companies that may help us process information, manage data, provide technical support, or perform other services on our behalf. We  require these companies to protect your personal information in accordance with our Privacy Policy in effect at the time we transfer the information.

At times we may be required by law, court order, government regulation, or litigation to disclose your personal information. We also may need to disclose your personal information for national security or public welfare reasons. We will always fully comply and cooperate with law enforcement or national security agencies.

Security
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or  destruction. You should keep in mind, however, that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this Site  may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
