Collection and Use of Personal Information
How We Collect Personal Information
“Personal Information” refers to information that can be used to personally identify you, a specific individual. Different states and laws define Personal Information (or similar terms, such as “personally identifiable information”) differently, but Personal Information generally includes information such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and phone number. It may also include the IP address of your computer or mobile device if that IP address can be associated with other Personal Information and used to identify a particular person, or geo-location information, again if that information can be used to pinpoint a specific party.
We will collect Personal Information from you only if you voluntarily provide it to us. For example, when you contact us, such as through the “Contact Us” or similar links on the Site, or when you subscribe our resources, we will have access to your name, email address, and any other information you choose to include in your correspondence. If you participate in any other interactive area of our Site, we will collect any Personal Information that you include as a part of your participation.
In addition, some mobile network providers (“Mobile Provider”) in the U.S. are required to use technology that tracks the physical location of mobile devices that use their service. Depending on your Mobile Provider and mobile device, we may automatically receive this information, which, as noted above may be considered Personal Information. Most mobile devices provide users with the ability to disable location services. These controls are usually located in the mobile device's settings menu. If you have questions about how to disable your mobile device's location services, you should contact your Mobile Provider or your mobile device manufacturer.
How We Use Personal Information
We use the Personal Information we collect through the Site to respond to your inquiries, to provide you with the resources and services you request, and to contact you regarding other services we offer that may be of interest to you. We may also use Personal Information collected through the Site for research regarding the effectiveness of the Site and our business planning, marketing, advertising, and sales efforts. In addition, if we begin to offer services that use location tracking (“pinpointing”) information, then if we have your “opt-in” consent to do so we may use and store that information to provide location-based services, including location-targeted advertising.
You are in control over whether you provide us with any Personal Information. If you are not comfortable with our accessing and using the Personal Information as described, you should not provide it (and should take steps to disable any technology that automatically provides us with Personal Information). This may affect our ability to provide you with information and services through the Site; however, that is your choice.
Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
How We Collect Non-Personal Information
We may also use “web beacons”, i.e. “web bugs” or “single–pixel” or “clear” GIFs, on the Site. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their website.
