What information do we collect and how is it used?
- Voluntarily submitted information. Contact information (such as your name and email address) and demographic information (such as zip/postal code, preferences and interests) may be collected when you voluntarily submit them to the Website by leaving a comment, subscribing to a newsletter, or submitting into a contact form or customer survey/offer.

Below is a detailed description of the different ways the information is collected and used. We reserve the right to make changes to this list at our sole discretion.
A cookie is a file that contains an identifier (a combination of letters and numbers) that are sent from a web server then stored by a web browser. Every time the browser requests the server for a page, the identifier is sent back to the server. Cookies typically don’t contain any personally identifying information about the user, however, the information obtained from cookies may be linked to personal information that we store about you.
If you leave a comment on our Site, the information in the comments form along with the commenter’s IP address and browser user agent string are collected to assist in spam detection. Comments may also be run through an automated spam detection service.
For your convenience, at the time of commenting you may opt-in to store your information (name, email address, and website) in cookies to allow you to more conveniently leave another comment without having to fill in your details a second time. These cookies are set to automatically expire after a year, if not deleted before.
(iii) Email Addresses
Our Site may collect your email address if you voluntarily provide it to us, such as by registering for an email newsletter, entering a promotion, or contacting us with an inquiry. Your email will not be shared with third parties (unless we have your permission or are required to do so by law), and will be used in the purpose for which you provided it. Also, occasional emails regarding our Site, products, or services that we deem to be of interest may be sent to you. At any time you may opt out of email communication by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ button located in the email.
(iv) Google Analytics
Our newsletter, which you may choose to subscribe to, may be used for advertising purposes and contain tracking pixels to allow us to track and analyze the success of online marketing campaigns. Use of these tracking pixels allows us to see if and when you open an email, and which links provided in the email that you click. This permits us to adapt future newsletter content to our subscribers’ interests. This information is not shared with third parties.
(vi) Embedded Content from Other Sites
(vii) Anonymous Data
We may occasionally provide anonymous data, such as analytics or data collected through cookies, to other parties for marketing, advertising, and other uses. This data does not identify you alone, or when combined with data from other parties.
