”Non-personal information” means information that does not directly or indirectly identify you, and including Personal Information that has been de-identified or anonymized.

How We Collect Personal Information 

We may collect information from you in the following ways:

  • By Asking - We may collect some information from you by asking that you provide it to us. For instance, if you fill out an inquiry form we may ask you for your email address or other business contact information in order to access certain promotional materials.  
  • Cookies - Many sites use “cookies,” which are small text files that reside on your computer to identify you as a unique user. We may use cookies on our website to allow us to, among other things, measure activity and to personalize your experience.

We also allow third party cookies on our websites to track the activity on our web pages. These cookies can sometimes be linked to contact information, but this information cannot be viewed by other parties and is not shared. If you choose, you can set your browser to reject cookies or you can manually delete individual or all of the cookies on your computer by following your browser’s help file directions. However, if your browser is set to reject cookies or you manually delete cookies, you may have some trouble accessing and using some of the pages and features that are currently on our website, or that we may put on our website in the future.
  • Web Beacons - A web beacon is an electronic file on a Web page that allows us to count and recognize users who have visited that page. Among other things, a web beacon can be used in HTML-formatted email to determine responses to our communications and measure their effectiveness – for instance, the web beacon can tell if you get an email from us then click on a link in that email to go to our website. You can generally avoid web beacons in email by turning off HTML display and displaying only the text portion of your email. Web beacons may also provide the type of information provided by cookies concerning your use, preferences, and activity on a website.
