| Our privacy pledge to you:
We will not collect any
personal information from you that you do not volunteer and we will not
use any information you volunteer unless you give us permission to do
When you use our site, we may collect tracking information such as your
browser type, the type of operating system you use, the domain name of
your Internet service provider, and pages visited on the site. None of
this information identifies you personally. We collect it for aggregate
reporting on site activity. For example, we may want to know how long
the average user spends on the Site, or which pages get the most attention.
We use this information to make the site more useful to you. We may also
use third-party services to assist us with this non-personal tracking.
We use "cookies" to store and sometimes to track user information.
Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us e-mail address or other personally
identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information
to us. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser
from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie contains
a unique number that allows our site to recognize your computer. The help
function on most browsers contains information on how to set your browser
to notify you before accepting cookies or to disable cookies entirely.
We also use "pixel tags" or "web beacons" on certain
pages of our web site. These are tiny graphic images that enable us to
record anonymous data about visits. This anonymous information is also
known as "clickstream data." We use this data to analyze trends
and to improve your online experience. No personal data is collected through
the use of pixel tags on our site.
We may also use third-party software to track page views and clicks on
banners (hyperlinked to sponsor's sites). This is also aggregate information
and does not identify you personally.
