What information do we collect and how is it used?

Information You Voluntarily Provide

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” is
information that you provide to us that may be used to identify you,
such as your full name, physical address, email address, or phone

collect Personal Information through this Web site unless you
voluntarily submit it. Personal Information will be collected when you
fill out a “contact us” form and/or when you otherwise voluntarily
submit or provide Personal Information to us. We use Personal
Information to provide the services and information you have requested
and for administrative and analytical purposes. For example, unless
otherwise prohibited by law, the Personal Information may be used to
contact you (by telephone, regular mail, email, facsimile or other
means) to answer your questions or respond to your comments, to send you
information about our products and services, to provide emails,
newsletters and other communications, to conduct market research, to
ensure compliance with our policies and applicable laws and regulations,
and to market our products and services. Unless otherwise prohibited
by law, we may also sell, rent or lease your Personal Information to
third parties for marketing and promotional purposes.
