It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

For visitors on our website we collect:

  • Any voluntary information submitted to us by visitors.
  • Aggregate (General Tracking) information about pages that users visit on our site.
  • 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.
  • Potentiall personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We do not use such information to identify visitors and do not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances for disclosing personally-identifying information, as described below.

The information that we collect is used for:

  • Internal review, tracking, or contracting and is then archived for future reference.
  • Delivering custom content to our website vendors.
  • Improving the quality of our website content and user-friendliness for a better user experience.
  • Contact information for billing, service announcements, marketing purposes, including newsletters, emails or periodic advertisements from our company.
  • Not Shared with any outside organization for commercial purposes, except where required. We may still share this information for tracking and other non-commercial purposes.
  • Google Analytics is set up to track traffic to or from this website. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to our website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a name, email address and phone number. Those who engage in transactions with us are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

We use SSL encryption to protect the data that is transferred between you and our servers. We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available to our websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using our website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to our employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, we disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of our organization, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of our website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with our organization and our products. We primarily use our blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. We will take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookie Policy

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer. The visitor’s browser provides this information to the website each time the visitor loads a page. We use cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of our website, and their website access preferences. Most cookies are harmless, the data is only stored temporarily to make the website work. But cookies can track you across the internet when they are set by third-party features (e.g. Google Maps).

Viewing and Deleting Cookies

You may view the settings in your browser to see a list of all cookies that are saved on our website. You can view the contents or delete them at any time.

Third Party Cookies

We use third-party vendors (e.g. Google Maps, Google Analytics, etc) who may add third-party cookies which collect data and compile your activity with other data they own. These cookies can legitimately track you, record what pages you visit, and provide highly targeted advertising based on your activity. Not all third-party features do this, but you should be aware that it is common practice. As long as we use their features on the website, we can’t control how they use cookies. But reputable companies often let you opt out of tracking (see options below).

Opt-Out of Cookie Collection

We provide a Cookie Consent notice when you first visit our site. If you agree, we set a cookie that is valid for 12 months, at which point you need to agree again. If you wish to revoke your acceptance of our Cookie Policy, you can easily open your browser settings, find the section that describes your security (keyword “cookies”) and delete all your cookies for this domain.

If you do not consent, you should not use our website, because, at the moment, there is no way to use our site without cookies. We require the use of basic cookies for doing very mundane things like: remembering the active menu, or storing common variables to make the site load faster. You cannot opt-out of these required cookies or the site won’t work. We do use third-party services (e.g. Google Maps) which may set cookies that could track you around the internet on other sites that use those same services. Unfortunately, we can’t provide you with functionality like Maps, Chat, or Analytics (which is important for our business operations) without these cookies. They are critical to our core functionality and business activities, and we don’t currently have a way to disable only specific features of the site. But if you are concerned about third party cookies tracking you, you do have a few options:

  • Edit your browser settings to “disable third party cookies”
  • Opt-out of cookies collection at the third party company, e.g. Google Opt-out

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, we may change our Privacy Policy from time to time, at our sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to our Privacy Policy. If you have an account, you should also check your site’s dashboard for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
