Collection of Information
Personally Identifiable Information. We collect personally identifiable information (also known as PII), like names, postal addresses, email addresses, and any other information required to fulfill an obligation to the user when voluntarily submitted by a user. For example, mailing information is required to award giveaway prizes to winners, but this information is never used or sold for any additional purpose beyond fulfilling the prize or to respond to e-mails sent voluntarily by users such as feedback, questions, and technical support. Personally identifiable information is used solely to address your specific request and is not sold to third parties or market researchers. We never sell your personally identifiable information (PII) to third parties.
(a) Distribution of Personally Identifiable Information. We may be required by law to share personally identifiable information with government agencies, law enforcement, or parties to civil or criminal lawsuits. To reveal collected user information, we require a validly issued subpoena, warrant, or court under that specifically requests the information sought (it should not be overly broad or vague) unless we have a good faith belief there is an emergency involving death or serious physical injury. All requests should comply with Rule 45 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the US SPEECH Act, 28 U.S.C. 4101 et seq.
(b) Commitment to Data Security. Your personally identifiable information is kept secure. Only authorized employees, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information. When signing up for our newsletter, we require double opt-in, and all mailing lists from this site allow you to opt out of further mailings.
(c) Children. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our records.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We collect non-personally identifiable information through such devices as third-party and in-house analytics, cookies, log files, and similar technologies, which may include, but is not limited to, your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the Web browser you used to visit the Site, the time you visited the Site, which Web pages you visited on the Site, and other anonymous Site usage data, and so forth. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to combine the various types of data that is collected.

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as browser add-ins, plug-ins, anti-virus software and suits, and so forth. Disabling cookies may affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites.
