Your information and how our Site makes use of it
Our Site collects aggregate information (such as the number of users who log on to the Site on a daily basis). As a general policy, no personally identifiable information is automatically collected from your visit to our Site. However, if you choose to provide information such as your name, email address, physical address, or photograph, this is personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”). We may use your Personal Information as part of our Site analysis as we further explain below
From time to time, we may collect general statistical or aggregate information. Such information can include the type of browsers being used (e.g., Chrome®, Safari®, Edge®, Firefox®), the operating system you are using (e.g., iOS®, Android®, Windows®, or Mac® OS), the number of users that visit a specific page on the Site and the nature and duration of such visits. This information may be used to help analyze Site traffic and improve our services. At no point, however, will the aggregated information personally identify you.
We reserve the right to disclose any aggregate information and Personal Information if required to do so by law, including compliance with legal process served on Company, or if we believe that such action is necessary in order to: (a) to protect or defend the legal rights or property of Company, the Site, or its users; or (b) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of the Site’s users or the general public.
You should refer to the rest of this Policy to see how we use, disclose and protect this information:
Automatically Collected Information
Similar in function to Cookies, Web Beacons (also known as pixels) are small, transparent images that collect information such as the IP address of the requesting computer, the time for which the material was viewed, the type of web browser that retrieved the web beacon image, and the existence of cookies previously set by the Site’s server.
Do Not Track Requests
The Site does not respond to browser-based, Do Not Track requests or signals. Further, Company allows other parties to collect aggregate information about your other online interests over time and across different websites when a user accesses the Site.
This website is intended for use by individuals who are 18 of age or older. Accordingly, Company does not knowingly, directly or passively collect information from individuals under the age of 18.
The following section describes these disclosure practices more fully:
We may use aggregate information and Personal Information for our own internal statistical, design, or operational purposes, such as to estimate our audience size or to measure aggregate traffic patterns, as well as to understand areas of interest, and other trends among our users. In addition, we may outsource these tasks to authorized third parties; however, the third parties may not use or disclose information for any other purposes. This includes use of Google Analytics which includes analysis of general demographic data such as age and gender information, your other online interests (as referenced above), and your general location based on the IP address of your computer or device. None of this information identifies you as an individual. However, if you are signed into your Google Account when accessing the Site, this Personal Information is collected by Google Analytics and is included in the Google analysis.

Aggregate information shared with our authorized third parties may be stored on our internal equipment to which we allow access, or, the data may reside on their own respective external equipment.
Information about our users and the Site is one of our most important business assets. Therefore, information about our users may be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business to provide the Site or fulfill products, sale or pledge of company assets, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which Personal Information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.
Protection of Company and Others
As referenced above, we release information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply our policies; to protect our rights or property; or to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, our Site; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
Security of Information
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of information in our custody and control. We also are committed to employing reasonable technology in order to protect the security of our Site. However, even with the best technology, no Site is 100% secure. We will take reasonable measures which we believe are appropriate to protect information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction, and, where possible, will ask that any third parties to whom we may transfer such information to take comparable steps to protect that security.
Links to Other Websites
You should be aware that Company has no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit, interact with, or from which you buy products or services.
