Information Provided Voluntarily

Personal Information. You may be asked to provide personal information including your name and email address when you use our inquiry contact form. Visitors are not required to provide this information. And we do not collect any personal information from Visitors who simply visit the Website, unless they provide such information voluntarily by registering at our Website or signing up for information. This information is collectively called “Personal Information.”

Information Collected Automatically

In addition to the information described above, we may collect other information as follows:

Comments. When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies.

We partner with another party to provide specific services.
