1. Information We Obtain

We may obtain your contact information and other information you choose to provide through the Site.

In addition, when you visit our Site, we may obtain certain information by automated means, such as cookies, web beacons, web server logs and other technologies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server.

We may use these automated technologies on our Site to collect information about your equipment, browsing actions, and usage patterns. The information we may obtain in this manner may include your device IP address, identifiers associated with your devices, types of devices connected to our Site, web browser characteristics, device characteristics, language preferences, referring/exit pages, clickstream data, and dates and times of visits to our Site. These technologies may help us (1) track and understand how you use and interact with our Site; (2) measure the usability of our Site and the effectiveness of our communications; and (3) otherwise manage and enhance our services and help ensure they are working properly.  

Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies or how to restrict or disable certain types of cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of our Site. For mobile devices, you can manage how your device and browser share certain device data by adjusting the privacy and security settings on your mobile device.
