We collect no personally identifiable information about you when you visit our site, unless you opt to provide this information to us. On the other hand, we gather and retain certain information routinely. Here is how we deal with information about your visit to our site.

What We Collect and Store Routinely

If you do nothing during your visit except browse through the site, read pages, or download information, we will still gather and retain particular information about your visit automatically. This information does not name you personally. We automatically gather and retain only the following information about your visit:

  • The Internet domain and IP address (the number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our site;
  • The browser type and operating system used to access our site;
  • The date and time our site was accessed;
  • The pages visited; and
  • If you linked to our site from a different site, the address of that site.

We use the information collected to calculate the number and type of visitors to the different pages making up our site, and to help us make our site more practical to visitors like you.

If You Send Us E-mail

You may choose to offer us personal information, as in e-mail with a statement or question. We use the information to develop our service to you or to address requests. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, we do not distribute our e-mail addresses with any outside/third-party organizations.

We store your e-mail address only internally and guarantee that it will never be sold, leased, or rented without your prior authorization.

These session cookies are deleted from the component’s server once the session is ended and information from them is not collected or stored.

Information Protection

For site security purposes and to make certain that this service remains accessible to all users, this site employs software programs to observe network traffic to recognize unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise instigate damage. If such monitoring reveals evidence of potential abuse or criminal activity, such evidence may be forwarded to proper law enforcement officials. Unauthorized attempts to upload or modify information on this server are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act or another local, state, or federal law.
