We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside third parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include authorized third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those third parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety. However, non-personally identifiable information may be provided to third parties for marketing, advertising or other uses. Statistical information derived from the information submitted via any website form may be shared with third parties; however, such statistical information is not associated with any individual in a personally identifiable manner.
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
- to personalize your experience
- to improve our website
- to improve customer service
- to process transactions
- to send periodic e-mails or other electronic communications
- to send standard mail when a mailing address is submitted by the user.
The e-mail address you provide may be used to send you information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions. From time to time, we may send e-mail messages informing you of products and services we believe may be of interest to you. Those marketing e-mails may contain code that enables our database to track the usage of the e-mails, including whether the e-mail was opened and/or what links (if any) were clicked. We will combine such information to improve your experience with our services and equipment and/or provide customized e-mail communications.
The physical mailing address you provide may be used to send you information via standard post. From time to time, we may send mail messages informing you of products and services we believe may be of interest to you.
We have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. The personally identifiable information we collect about you is stored in limited access servers. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain safeguards to protect the security of these servers and your personal information. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs/Pixel Tags). Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies.
