The only personally identifying information that we collect and store about you is the information that you have chosen to provide to us. We may collect your personal information when you contact us via this Site.

Personal information will only be used for the reasons outlined in this policy, and will be retained only as long as necessary to fulfill the stated purposes, or for a period specifically required by law or regulation and thereafter will be disposed of securely or made anonymous so that it cannot be identified to any individual.

If you block or otherwise reject our cookies some of this Site features may not function properly.

Referrers, IP Addresses, and Environment Variables

We collect information through “referrers,” IP addresses, and various environment variables. A “referrer” is information the web browser passes along to this Site’s web server that references the URL from which you came.
