How We Collect and Use Information
We may collect and store personal or other information that you voluntarily supply to us online while using the Sites (e.g., while on the sites or in responding via email to a feature provided on the sites). We only contact individuals who specifically request that we do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive our free newsletters or have requested other information from us such as requests for quotes. We collect personally identifying information from our users during online registration and online purchasing. Generally, this information includes name and e-mail address for registration to receive our free newsletters and to respond to requests for quotes. All of this information is provided to us by you.
We also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the sites. For example, we may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the sites. We also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the sites. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the sites, cookies help us deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit us, and track users. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the sites where you may have entered preference information before. The sites also may use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages.
We use the information we collect from you while you are using the sites in a variety of ways, including using the information to customize features. We also may provide your information to third parties we work with such as service providers for a variety of purposes. Through your use of the sites we reserve the right to use, and to disclose to third parties, all of the information collected from and about you while you are using the sites..
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
Be aware that we may occasionally release information about our visitors when the release is appropriate to comply with the law or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the Site or the public.
Please also note that as our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that we sell some or all of our assets, or one or more of our websites is acquired by another company, information about our users may be among the transferred assets.
