Privacy Policy
I recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of certain information collected about our customers and prospective customers. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it and how to correct or change it. My intention is to give you an understanding about how we collect your information and the use we make of it in the course of our business.

I gather two types of information about our customers: data that customers provide through optional, voluntary registration on our site; and data I gather through aggregate tracking, mainly by tallying page views throughout our site. Such information enables us to tailor our content to fit customers’ needs. I will not disclose personal information to third parties without your consent, except as may be noted in this Privacy Policy or disclosed to you when the information is submitted.

I collect information by specifically requesting it from you. Generally this occurs when you request information. I use your information to operate the site and to deliver services. I also use your information to inform you about other products or services available. By providing an email address and/or a telephone number, you are giving us permission to contact you via e-mail or phone in response to this request, even if the phone number is in the State and/or the National Do Not Call Registry.

Usage tracking is done primarily by login into a log file visitor summary report that describes behavior such as which pages are view and how many visitors enter the site in a given period of time. This system is purely statistical and does not collect your identity or personal information.

These other sites may include other sites of advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use this site as part of a co-branding agreement.

The inclusion of hyperlinks to these sites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such sites or any association with their operators. Our policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, which is beyond our control.

Information Security
The importance of security of all information collected from our web site is a concern to us. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our server. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our on-line system, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, I use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your information. However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet.
