Does Our Website Collect Information From Children Under 13 Years of Age?
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Our Website is not designed for or directed to children under the age of 13. We do not collect Personally Identifiable Information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13. We urge all parents or guardians to participate in their children's exploration of the Internet, and to teach their children about protecting their personal information while online. If a child has provided our website with personally identifiable information, we ask that a parent or guardian contact us and we will delete the information about the child from our files.
What Does Our Website Do With the Information It Collects?
In general, we use the information collected on our Website to help us understand who uses our Website and how it is used, to personalize your online experience, to assist you in using our products, and to improve our Website. If you become a registered user of our Website, we may use your information to send you a welcoming email that may confirm your user name and password. If you "opt-in", we may send you electronic newsletters, contact you about our products, services, information and news that may be of interest to you. If you no longer desire to receive these communications, we will provide you with the option to change your preferences.

When Does Our Website Disclose Information to Third Parties?
We may provide to third parties information about you that does not allow you to be identified or contacted, including wherein such information is combined with similar information about other users of our Website.

Is the Information Collected on Our Website Secure?
Notwithstanding the above commitments to protect your information (including Personally Identifiable Information) from loss, misuse or alteration by third parties, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet.

What Choices Do I Have Regarding the Collection, Disclosure and Distribution of Personally Identifiable Information?
Can I Update or Correct My Personally Identifiable Information?
You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your Personally Identifiable Information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. We promise that promptly after receiving your request, all Personally Identifiable Information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media will be updated, corrected, changed or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as reasonably practicable.
