  • Access Device and Browser Information. When you access the Services from a computer or mobile device, we may collect anonymous information from that device, such as your Internet protocol address, browser type, connection speed and access times, and the type of computer or mobile device you use.
  • Usage Information. We may keep track of how you use our Services, such as how you navigate from one screen to the next or the content of searches you perform.  We may also use technology to alert us when you open an email from us.
  • Cookies. “Cookies” are small data files sent to your browser while you are viewing a website.  We may use session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies to make the Service easier to use.

Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit our site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to our site.  We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our site.  Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit our site, rather than your name or other identifying information.  We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to our site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.  You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to our site by disabling cookies on your browser.

We abide by Facebook’s Data Use Restrictions.

  • Any ad data collected, received or derived from our Facebook ad (“Facebook advertising data”) is only shared with someone acting on our behalf, such as our service provider. We are responsible for ensuring that our service providers protect any Facebook advertising data or any other information obtained from us, limit our use of all of that information, and keep it confidential and secure.
  • We do not use Facebook advertising data for any purpose (including retargeting, commingling data across multiple advertisers’ campaigns, or allowing piggybacking or redirecting with tags), except on an aggregate and anonymous basis (unless authorized by Facebook) and only to assess the performance and effectiveness of our Facebook advertising campaigns.
  • We do not use Facebook advertising data, including the targeting criteria for a Facebook ad, to build, append to, edit, influence, or augment user profiles, including profiles associated with any mobile device identifier or other unique identifier that identifies any particular user, browser, computer or device.
  • We do not transfer any Facebook advertising data (including anonymous, aggregate, or derived data) to any ad network, ad exchange, data broker or other advertising or monetization related service.

We may also include sharing buttons in order to facilitate sharing our content with your social networks. These social networks have their own privacy policies, and they may be able to collect information when you visit a page containing these buttons.  Our Privacy Policy does not apply to sites or services owned by third parties.
