Provider appreciates and respects the privacy concerns of the visitors to its web site. As a general policy, no personal information is automatically collected from customers visiting this web site. However, certain information is recorded as a matter of course by Provider’s servers in order to track the number of visitors to the web site and to help provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor. The type of information tracked by our servers includes the browser and operating system in use by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service Provider. Collecting this information allows Provider to optimize the visitor’s web site experience. E-mail addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors to this site are known to Provider only if and when voluntarily submitted by the visitor. All personal information collected by Provider is retained by Provider and not sold or otherwise provided to third parties. Provider sometimes uses email addresses and other personally identifiable information to communicate with visitors who have provided Provider with their email addresses for specific purposes such as receiving newsletters or other information. Each newsletter will also contain instructions on how to discontinue receipt of the newsletter. Visitors should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information on bulletin boards or in chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other parties.
Many of Provider’s web pages place a “cookie” in the browser files of a visitor’s computer. The cookie itself does not contain any personal information. Although cookies enable Provider to relate a visitor’s use of Provider’s site to information that the visitor has specifically and knowingly provided, Provider does not do so for any sites specifically designed for and aimed at children. Provider believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and should consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online any personal information without parental permission.
