    Website Privacy

    We make the following assurances of privacy for visitors to our website:

    Tracking

    We keep track of visits to our website via an automatic monitoring program that tells us, among other things, how many visits are made to the site; the time of day and date of those visits; and the areas visited. This information is used to evaluate the effectiveness of our site and the effectiveness of any promotion of our site. It helps us answer questions such as these: Are we providing information on our website that is useful? Which information is most useful? How have we made you aware that our website exists?

    The monitoring program does not provide us with any personal information about a visitor. We cannot discern the name, address, or any other personal information about visitors to our site.

    If we wish to gather such personal information, it will be requested via a form on the site that the user voluntarily completes and submits. The form will describe the way in which the information will be used.
