We may also collect automatic information about your visit to our website, such as time of day, browser type and version, browser language, your operating system and platform, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet.

How We Protect Your Personal Information
We have taken precautions to protect your personal information under our control from misuse, loss, or alteration. Our security measures include industry standard technology and equipment to help protect your data. No system can ensure complete security; you should take necessary steps to protect your information and its transmission to us. Because the Internet is a public medium, we cannot guarantee the absolute protection of your personal information.

How We Use Cookies
Cookies are small pieces of information that some websites store on your computer’s hard drive when you visit them. Like many other websites, we may use cookies to identify users for our business purposes.

This Website Uses Google AdWords and Twitter Remarketing
This is done to advertise on third party websites to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site such as using the contact form to make an inquiry. This could be in the form of an ad on the Google search results page, a site in the Google Display Network, or in a user’s Twitter feed.

What We Provide to Third Parties
Third-party agents may need access to some of your personal information. For example, we may need to share your name and address with third parties. In such cases, we only provide third-party agents with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction.

We reserve the right to provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our clients, traffic patterns, and related site information. This data reflects site usage patterns, but does not contain personally identifiable information about any individual user.

Linked Websites
We may provide links to third-party sites. Because we do not control these websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on them. We are not responsible for privacy practices or content of other websites or the information collected on them.

If we receive knowledge that we have collected personal information without the requisite and verifiable parental consent, we will delete that information from our database as quickly as possible.
