When you visit any of our web sites, your computer's IP address, operating system type, browser type, and referring URL are automatically logged. This information is not shared with anyone outside of our company, unless required by applicable law. We may use this information to contact you if necessary.
In addition to the cookies we use, as described above, companies advertising on our web sites have the ability to assign their own cookies. This is a process over which we have no control. In addition, one of our advertising partners has implemented interest-based advertising. Interest-based advertising allows advertisers to show ads based on a user's previous interactions with them, such as visits to advertiser web site and also to reach users based on their interests (e.g. "sports enthusiast"). To develop interest categories, our advertising partner will recognize the types of web pages users visit throughout their network.
Some of our web sites require that you supply us with your name, email address, phone number, and other demographic information. This information is not shared with anyone outside of our company, unless required by applicable law. We may use this information to contact you if necessary.
General demographic information that you optionally supply to us is only used for general statistical purposes.
Any information we gather from you will only be used to contact you if requested or necessary. All personally identifiable information we collect remains in our hands. Only a court ordered request made forcing us to turn it over to the proper authorities will make us reveal your personal information. However, in the event that our company or a particular web site within our network to which you have provided personal information is sold, your personal information may be transferred to the new owner and we will no longer maintain a copy after the transfer is complete.
