How we use cookies.

We do use cookies. A cookie is a small file that asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets us know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Links to other websites.

The Site may contain links to other websites. However, once you have used these links to leave our Site, we do not have any control over that other website, which will have its own separate privacy policies. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information that you provide while visiting such sites. Such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. We have no responsibility or liability for the content and/or activities of these linked sites. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy policy applicable to the website in question.

Disclosure of information to outside parties.

We will not sell, distribute, or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We also reserve the right to share or disclose your information in the following situations:

  • If such sharing and/or disclosure is necessary for a third-party to perform certain business-related functions, in which case the third-party will be provided with only the information that it needs to perform its function and will be required to protect the information
  • To protect the legal rights, privacy, or safety of your organization, its subsidiaries, and/or affiliates or your organization or your employees, agents, and/or contractors
  • To protect the safety and security of visitors to your web sites
  • To protect against fraud or other illegal activity or for risk management purposes
