We capture information from visitors in two different ways:
- Directly – through information you submit to us
- Indirectly – through our website technology
Direct Data Collection
Personal data is only stored when voluntarily given by you for a determined purpose e.g. in context of a registration, a survey, a contest or in performance of a contract. Your individual, identifiable, personal data will not be disclosed to third parties, without your consent.
Indirect Data Collection
By using aggregate statistical analysis, we review trends based on information as a whole, but not so as to identify individual users. Data collected indirectly through the use of proprietary and/or third-party software technology may include, but is not limited to:
- IP address
- Domain name
- Referral data and exit pages
- Browser type
- Operating system platform
- Internet service provider
We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Third Party Cookies
You may refuse to accept cookies by altering the settings on your internet browser (for example Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox). Please note that if you choose not to permit cookies some areas of our website may not function properly or be accessible.
Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users or to access cookies. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on the web pages (or in email) and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Web beacons may be used to deliver or communicate with cookies, to count users who have visited certain pages and to understand usage patterns. We may include web beacons in promotional or other email messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. If you come to our site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, you may receive an anonymous identification number.
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
Protecting the privacy of young people is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we know to be under 13 and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
Links and Information Gathered by Others
Our site contains links to other sites. We do not operate these sites, cannot control what information such sites gather or what such sites do with the information, and is therefore not responsible for the activities of the operators of such sites. This privacy statement only applies to information collected by our site.
We are compliant with the policies of several industry groups that focus on effective communication, best practices, and policy review in the field of Online Behavioral Advertising (OBA). These organizations include the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA), and the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB). We are compliant with both the NAI and DAA self-regulatory codes. We believe that delivering targeted and relevant advertising enhances your internet experience. You can opt-out here.
