WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU?
This Website collects two general types of information:
INFORMATION YOU VOLUNTEER
We collect personally identifiable information that you enter on the Website or otherwise volunteer to us (such as your name, e-mail address, credit card number, home address, phone number, and/or similar information), when you contact us to, among other things, make purchases or request information. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future experiences for you, improving our operations, and communicating with you.
This Website will only collect personal information that you knowingly and voluntarily provide by, for example, responding to polls, completing membership forms, sending e-mails, etc. It is this Website’s general practice to use personal information only for the purposes for which it was requested and any additional uses specifically stated on the Website.
Although this Website has security measures in place to protect personal information provided to us by users, users should also take steps to protect personal information by, for example, closing all web browsers after using the Website. Information disclosed within comments, feedback, messages and similar contexts may become public. Users should therefore exercise caution before disclosing personal information in any such context.
You may correct, update, or remove the personal information provided to us through the use of the Website by submitting a request via the “Contact Us” either here or through the Website.
INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY
You can visit our Website, read materials, and browse the Website’s contents without giving us any personally identifiable information. In order to provide you with the most efficient and enhanced personalized service and attention, and to accommodate certain requests which you make, we request information about you in certain circumstances and collect certain information automatically.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many web Websites, we use “cookies” and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our Website or advertisements and other content served by us or on our behalf on other web Websites. We may also automatically collect your Internet Protocol and referring web Website addresses, browser type and domain name. This information helps facilitate your online experience on our Website. We use “cookies” to track usage patterns on our Website and to control the display of ads, as well as to offer other functionalities. You can turn off cookies, but that will affect your online experience. Please see below for more detail on cookies.
