By using this website, you consent to the collection and use of information as specified above.  Any changes to our policies will be posted on this page.  Please review this page to remain updated on the information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.  You must review the new policies carefully to make sure you understand our practices and procedures.

Cookies

We use “cookies” on this site, which are pieces of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our website and identify repeat visitors.  Cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our website.  Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.).  Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.  These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.  We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites.  Users should be aware when leaving our website through a link and should read the privacy policy of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

Who we share your data with

We use the collected information primarily for our own internal purposes, such as providing, maintaining, evaluating, and improving our services and website, fulfilling requests for information, and providing customer support.  We do not sell or provide the information we collect to third parties for the purpose of direct or indirect marketing.  We will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: cooperate with investigations of purported unlawful activities and as required by law or to comply with legal process served on our law firm; protect and defend the rights or property of our website and business; and/or identify persons who may be violating the law or misusing our website or our business.

How we protect your data

We follow generally accepted industry standards in protecting the information submitted during the transmission, and once received, through our website.  If we do collect sensitive information, like credit card information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way and only used for its intended purpose to transact business.  A closed lock icon at the top of your web browser and “https” at the beginning of the website address indicates the website is secure.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment on the website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.  This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this website, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.  You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you.  This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
