What information do we collect on the Site?
We collect information from or about Site users concerning use of the Site. We may collect Personal Data that you provide directly to us when you enter certain information on our Site. “Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. As is the case with many websites, our servers automatically collect your browser type and IP address when you visit the Site, and we may associate that with your domain name or that of your Internet access provider. In addition, we may capture certain “clickstream data” pertaining to your Site usage. Data captured may include, for example, the referring page that linked you to the Site, the country from which you are conducting your browsing session, the next website you visit when you leave the Site, and any search terms you have entered on the Site or a referral site. We and our service providers may use tracking technologies (e.g., cookies, local shared objects, and pixel tags) and website analytics tools to, among other things, monitor and better understand user behavior on the Site.
Local shared objects, such as “Flash cookies,” may be stored on your computer or device using a media player or other software installed on your computer or device. Local shared objects operate a lot like cookies, but cannot be managed in the same way. Depending on how local shared objects are enabled on your computer or device, you may be able to manage them using software settings.
A pixel tag (also known as a “clear GIF” or “web beacon”) is a tiny image – typically just one-pixel – that can be placed on a Web page in order to help us measure the effectiveness of our content by, for example, counting the number of individuals who visit us online or verifying whether you’ve seen one of our Web pages.

We may use your information:
to respond to your request(s), question(s) and concern(s), to administer the Site and enable users to use the Site and its features, to protect our rights and property;

In addition, we use the usage information collected about your Site visits, including the pages you view, information you search for, and the average time spent on our Site, on an individual basis or in the aggregate, to better understand our audience and the usage and visitation on our Site and the other sites tracked by these third parties; develop new features, deliver advertising targeted to your interests; and offerings on the Site and improve the functionality and user-friendliness of our Site.

We maintain presence on several social media platforms, such as Twitter, Medium and LinkedIn, and we also incorporate some third party social media features onto the Site. We also include tools on the Site that allow you to share and/or publicly post content or information from the Site to your profile on a third party social media platform. Third party social media platforms have their own privacy policies which explain how they will use, protect and share your information, including any information you share on those platforms from the Site, and we encourage you to read them.
Your Access Rights
If you have an account hosted through an Access-Restricted Website, please refer to the privacy policies and practices of the operators of the Access-Restricted Website available on such Access-Restricted Website to understand your rights to review, update or modify certain of the information that is stored in that account.
Links to Third-Party Websites
Do Not Track Disclosures
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” (“DNT”) signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. Our third party service providers, such as our website analytics service provider, may collect information about your online activities over time and across the Site and other online properties. Our service providers may not change their tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser, and we do not obligate them to honor DNT settings. You can opt out of your Site usage information being included in our Google Analytics reports by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Information Choices and Changes
You may send requests about personal information to our contact information below. You can request to change contact choices, opt-out of our sharing with others, and update your personal information. You can typically remove and reject cookies from our Site with your browser settings. Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings. If you remove or reject our cookies, it could affect how our Site works for you.
A Note About Children
We do not intentionally gather personal information from visitors who are under the age of 13. If a child under 13 submits personal information to us and we learn that the personal information is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.
