Privacy Policy

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY is committed to protecting your privacy online. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to protect the information we collect and use online. The information below is intended to demonstrate that commitment and provide insight into how we do that.

We understand that your confidence in our processes is critical as you participate more in online activities. We seek to provide you with as much control as possible over your personal information. The purpose of our policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you when you visit our site(s), how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information.

The security of the information you provide to us is important to us. We use encryption software and other security measures to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of sensitive information under our control. However, we include links to other sites, and when you choose to visit those sites, we are not responsible for their privacy policies or how they treat user information. In addition, we may permit third parties to offer registration-based services through our sites. We are not responsible for the actions and policies of these third parties, and you should review the privacy policies of these parties when supplying personal information to them.

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) provides that web site operators cannot knowingly collect or store personal information, even in the aggregate, from children under age 13 except as permitted by law. While we offer information that is useful to many children, we do not seek children’s participation in services that require registration.


We may disclose personal information if we are required to do so by law or we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process; (2) protect and defend our rights and property; (3) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our web sites; or (4) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public (among other things, this means that if you provide false information or attempt to pose as someone else, information about you may be disclosed as part of any investigation into your actions).

We reevaluate both our Privacy Policy and our Posting Policy on an ongoing basis. We will post the new policies on this page in a timely manner, and, if the changes allow us to use personally identifying information in ways that are different from the ways specified at the time the information was originally collected, will contain a special notice about the changes. Each version of this privacy policy will be identified by its effective date, which you can find at the top and the bottom of the page.
