Privacy Policy

 

We collect no personal information from our web site visitors, unless visitors choose to provide that information to us.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically
Our web server will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. Some of this information may be automatically provided by your web browser. If you are unaware or uncertain what information your web browser automatically provides, please consult your browser's documentation.

We automatically collect and store information like the following concerning your visit.

  • Your IP address (an IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer by your Internet provided whenever you connect to the Internet) from which you access our Web site;
  • The date and time you access our site;
  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our site (only if your browser automatically provides this information);
  • The pages you visit; and
  • If you linked to our web site from another Web site, the address of that web site (if your browser automatically provides this information).

We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors—for example, to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use—and for security reasons (to investigate fraud or other criminal activity).

Use of E-Mail Addresses
Certain products and services made available through our web site allow you to return at a later time or date and obtain additional products or services. In order to identify yourself, we use the e-mail address you provide as a unique identifier, along with a password, to verify your identity. We may use the e-mail address you provide to transmit reports at your request, or billing receipts at your request, or for necessary customer service communication. We do not send unsolicited commercial e-mail ("spam"), and we do not share your e-mail address with any third parties.

Information Protection
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this computer system may employ software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Similar measures may be employed to identify and protect against actual or attempted fraudulent activity, including, but not limited to: credit card fraud, bank card fraud, check fraud, wire fraud, access device fraud, theft of service, denial of service, and actual or attempted circumvention of access control measures. If such monitoring reveals evidence of criminal activity punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986, such evidence may be provided to appropriate law enforcement officials and also used in civil proceedings.

Web browser encryption (SSL) is used to protect sensitive information in transit to and from our web servers, including all billing information, search inputs submitted to us, and search results.

Information That You Voluntarily Provide
We do not collect personally-identifiable information unless you choose to provide it to us. If you provide us with personally identifiable information, for example by sending an e-mail or by filling out a form and submitting it through our Web site, we use that information only to respond to your message and to help us provide you with the information and services that you request.

Submitting voluntary information constitutes your consent to the use of the information for the stated purpose. When a user clicks the "Submit" button on any of the Web forms found on our site they are indicating voluntary consent to use of the information they submit for the stated or intended purpose.

How Information is Used
We do not collect or use personally identifiable information you provide for commercial marketing purposes. The information we collect is used to process information requests (searches), to provide customer service, and to respond to any inquiries made by the user. As part of our billing procedure, we may collect personally identifiable information (such as a billing name, address, and telephone number) that is used to process financial transactions through our merchant bank, gateway, or payment processor. We may retain this information in a secured database or transaction log for the purpose of keeping a financial record of those transactions, and for providing customer support in regard to those transactions.

Sharing of Information
Notwithstanding the above, we do not sell, rent, share, or otherwise voluntarily communicate your personally identifiable information to any third parties.

Retention of Information
Personally identifiable information that you provide for billing purposes may be retained in a secured database or transaction log, for the purpose of providing customer support to inquiries made in regard to those transactions, or to comply with the requirements of financial institutions or taxing authorities.
