In general, you can browse our website without giving us any personal information. We use log analysis software to analyze the traffic to this website in order to understand our customers’ needs and continually improve the website. The log analysis software collects only anonymous, aggregate statistics. For example, we do not tie a specific visit to a specific IP address.

Our website contains links to information on other websites. We do not have any control over these other websites, and therefore we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information that you provide while visiting those sites. Those sites are NOT governed by this Privacy Policy, and if you have questions about how a site uses your information, consult that site's privacy statement.
