This Privacy Policy describes our practices with respect to the collection, transfer, manipulation, disclosure and other uses of Your Information and certain other information collected by us through our Website. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Your Information” means information about you which may be of a confidential nature and may include personally identifiable information, including your first and last name and email address. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meanings ascribed to them by our Terms of Use (“Terms”).

This Privacy Policy applies to information collected by us through our Website, but does not apply to information collected by any person or entity other than us, even if related to our Website (such as by our third-party service providers).


This Privacy Policy may change from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of this Privacy Policy. Amendments will take effect immediately on our posting of the updated Privacy Policy. Your continued access or use of our Website after receiving the notice of changes means you accept the updated Privacy Policy, so please check this policy periodically for updates.

We do not knowingly collect, share, or sell personally identifiable information by anyone under the age of 16 and you should not provide us with any information regarding any individual under the age of 16.  If we learn that we have inadvertently gathered information from anyone under the age of 16, we will take reasonable measures to promptly remove that information from our records.

Any content or information submitted by you to third parties will be used and disclosed by such third parties in accordance with their respective privacy policies. You should review the privacy policies and practices of such third parties prior to disclosing information to them.

These third parties may collect information about you when you use our Website using cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly. Please note that the information collected by these third parties may be associated with Your Information and that these third parties may collect information, including Your Information, about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services.

2.    Cookies and Other Automatic Tracking Technologies

Description of the Technologies Utilized on our Website: We may use various technologies to collect and store information when you access or use our Website, including sending cookies, embedded scripts, web beacons, pixel tags or other anonymous identifiers to your device, or otherwise tracking your activities on our Website over time. We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (a practice known as “behavioral tracking”).

  • “Cookies” are small web files that a site or its provider transfers to your device’s hard drive through your web browser that enables the site’s or provider’s system to recognize your browser and remember certain information. The length of time a cookie will stay on your browsing device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your browsing device until they expire or are deleted. A “web beacon” is a type of technology that lets us know if you visited a certain page or whether you opened an email. A “pixel tag” is a type of technology placed within a website or e-mail for the purpose of tracking activity, which is often used in combination with cookies. Other “anonymous identifiers” include random strings of characters used for the same purposes as cookies, such as with mobile devices where cookie technology may not be available. These technologies help us know that you are logged on to or using our Website, provide you with features based on your preferences, help us understand when and how you are interacting with our Website and compile other information regarding your use of our Website.

  • With respect to Cookies, we use first-party and third-party cookies to: make our Website function properly; improve our Website; make access to our Website easier; recognize you when you return to our Website; track your interaction with our Website; enhance your experience with our Website; remember information you have already provided; collect information about your activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services; and to provide a secure browsing experience during your use of our Website. The categories of cookies used or that may be used on our Website include:

    • Strictly Necessary Cookies, which are needed for the Website to operate as you reasonably expect.

    • Functional or Preference Cookies, which are used to remember your name or choices.

    • Performance or Analytic Cookies, which collect passive information about your use of the Website.

    • Advertising or Targeting Cookies, which are used to make advertising messages more relevant and personalized to you based on your inferred interests.

  • We may use third-party service providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Website. For example, we may use Google Analytics as one of our analytics service providers that tracks and reports website traffic. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page. To learn more about how Google collects and uses data here. To opt out of Google Analytics Advertising Features please use Google Ad Settings. To opt out of Google Analytics entirely please use this link.

The information collected through these technologies, standing alone, cannot be used to determine your identity. Such information may, however, be combined in a way that makes it become personally identifiable information (i.e., information that can identify you). For example, we may tie this information to personal information about you that we collect from other sources or that you provide to us. If this happens, we will treat the combined information as personally identifiable information.

Choices as to Cookies and Other Automatic Tracking Technologies: It may be possible to disable some (but not all) cookies or automatic data collection technologies through your device or browser settings, but doing so may affect the functionality of all or a portion of our Website. The method for disabling cookies or other automatic collection technologies may vary by device and browser but can usually be found in preferences or security settings. For example, iOS and Android devices each have settings which are designed to limit forms of ad tracking. See Section 5 “Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information” for more information.

Do Not Track Requests:  Some Internet browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari, include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. Since uniform standards for “DNT” signals have not been adopted, our Website does not currently process or respond to “DNT” signals.

3.    How We Use Your Information
