How Information is Collected

We may collect and use personal information that you submit on the Site in any manner that is consistent with the uses stated in this Statement or disclosed elsewhere on the Site at the point you submit personal information or make a request. At the time you submit personal information or make a request, the intended use of the information you submit will be apparent in the context in which you submit it and/or the stated intended purpose. By submitting personal information, you provide your consent and permission for any use that is consistent with the uses stated in this Statement or elsewhere disclosed at the Site at the point you submit personal information.

We will not disclose, share, sell or divulge any personal information, such as address, email, and telephone and fax numbers, to third parties unless you have informed you, been authorized by you, or are required to do so by law.


In addition, we may periodically send out email newsletter and other notifications to our  users about new updates, services, products, or other news using email addresses provided during the email list subscription, or other process.

IP Addresses

Your IP Address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever users visit the Site, along with the times of such visits and the pages that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice on the internet and is done automatically by many web sites. We use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating site usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the Site. Please note that we treat IP Addresses, server log files, and related information as non-personal information except when we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. We may utilize sources such as “cookies” and so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear gifs,” and other similar technologies to collect non-personal information from your use of our Site.
