Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is very important to us. Part of our operation of this website involves the collection and use of information from you or about you. This privacy policy explains what type of information we collect and what we do with that information. It also explains your rights with respect to personal information collected. This privacy policy may change from time to time, so please check it often.

This Privacy Notice is intended to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA). Terms used in this Privacy Policy that are defined in the CCPA are intended to have their meanings as so defined.

 

Information We Collect

In general, you can visit this website without identifying who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Information collected online can generally be categorized as anonymous or personal information. Anonymous information is information that cannot be connected to the identity of a specific individual. Personal information is information that specifically identifies a particular user, such as name, address, or phone number. An example of anonymous information is the fact that, while this website may record the number of visits to a particular page that occur in a given period of time, it does not necessarily tell us the names or other identifying information of every visitor. Many users of this website will choose not to provide any personal information; therefore, those individuals are anonymous to us, and any data collected about their use of this website is anonymous information.
