Information collection
Personal and non-personal information

This web site collects two types of data about visitors: personal information (name, email address, phone number, etc.) and non-personal information (page visits, visit length, browser type, etc.).

With your permission, we also might collect information from you over the telephone, by mail, or in person. We might use it to improve our products and customer service.

It is your choice whether you provide personal information. However, withholding certain information could prevent us from providing goods or services to you. For example, we cannot respond to a "Contact Us" query form unless you provide contact information.

These tracking technologies allow us to improve this site and your browsing experience. We also might analyze this information for trends and statistics.
