Information We Collect
Like most website operators, the Site collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Site’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website.
Personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”), including but not limited to your name and email address, is collected when you provide it upon subscribing to our newsletter, completing a survey, filling out a form or registering on our site for any other purpose.
When ordering or registering on the Site, as appropriate, you may be asked to also enter your: mailing address, phone number or credit card information.
The Site also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. The Site only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
