We may collect personally identifiable information when you visit or use our pages. We may also receive personally identifiable information from our business partners. We track how our site is used by anonymous visitors by using a small string of text that is sent to your browser known as a “cookie” to collect information that includes the server your computer is logged onto and your browser type (such as Netscape or Internet Explorer). A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses or capture your email address or any other personally identifiable information.
We limit the collection of information about our customers, clients and other visitors to what we need to collect in order to administer a customer’s account, provide customer service and to satisfy any legal and/or regulatory requirements.
We also automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information and the page you requested.
We may use this information for four general purposes: to customize the content you see, to fulfill your requests for certain services and information, to contact you, and as permitted by applicable law.
