Information We Collect
We may obtain certain personal information you submit to us through our Site, including contact information (such as name, postal address, email address and telephone number). In addition, we offer visitors to our Site various services, which we may change from time to time. We may ask you to submit certain personal information so we can provide you with these services.
When you visit our Site, information may be collected through automated technologies such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons. A “cookie” is a file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. The information collected using these tools may include your IP address, browser characteristics, operating system, the address of the web page that referred you to our Site, dates and times of Site visits, the language your system uses, and the country and time zone in which your device is located. These technologies permit the collection of “clickstream data,” which may include a log of content you access while browsing a website.
On our Site, we use third-party web analytics services, such as those of Google Analytics. The service providers that administer these services may use technologies such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons to help analyze how visitors arrive at and interact with the Site. The information collected through these means (including IP address) is disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers.
