We recognize and respect your need for privacy and security as you visit our site. When you visit our site to view any pages, read product information, or use our on-line calculators and tools, you do so without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. While we do not collect identifying information about visitors to our site, we do use standard software to collect information for the strict purpose of tracking activity on our site. This allows us to better understand how many people use our site and which pages and features are most popular. The only information we normally collect and store is:
- The name of your Internet service provider
- The Web site that referred you to us (if any)
- The date and time the pages were accessed
- The page or pages you requested
There are instances where you may elect to provide us with personal information. If you fill out one of our guest books or send us an email, you are transmitting the information that appears to you in the form or the message. This will typically include information like your name, mailing address, email address, the kind of request you are making, and any other information necessary to fulfill your request. You never transmit personal identifying information that you do not enter yourself. And this is always your option; this information cannot be collected unless you specifically elect to send it to us. This information is used internally only for the purpose of fulfilling the request or for contacting you directly and is not given or sold to any other organization.
When you submit personal identifying information via one of our application forms, that information is also encrypted, or scrambled, by your browser before it is transmitted back to our Website. This effectively prevents anyone from intercepting and reading any personal information about you. Note that this encryption does not take place if you complete our guest book or send us an email, but only when you use your Web browser with one of our site's forms.
Website Usage Data
We may track certain non-personally identifiable information about the use of our Website, such as the source address of a page request, your IP address or domain name, the date and time of the page request, and other parameters in the URL. We use this data to better understand use of our Website and user preferences. This information is stored in log files and is used for aggregated and statistical reporting. This information is not linked to personally identifiable information gathered elsewhere on the site.
Online Forms and Applications
If you submit an application or form online, or request an online transaction, we may keep the information you send in an electronic database. We use security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and the alteration of data used in our systems.
