Information Gathering
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer the Website by (1) identifying which parts of the Website are most heavily used, (2) to tailor Website content to user needs, and (3) to generate aggregate statistical reports. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that user sessions will be tracked, but the users will remain anonymous.
You need not provide us with personally identifying information (e.g., name, telephone number, email address, city and/or state of residence) as a condition of using the Website. However, your failure to provide certain personally identifying information when asked will prevent certain features of the Website from functioning or will prevent us from effectively responding to certain of your requests. The Website will collect only that personally identifying information that you affirmatively provide in response to a direct request.  
We use a tool called "Google Analytics" to collect information about use of the Website. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit the Website, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Website. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve the Website. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to your browser on the date of your visit, instead of your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with any personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a "cookie" on your web browser to identify you as a unique user 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 the Website is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing your return visits to the Website by disabling cookies on your browser. Please refer to your browser settings for additional information on disabling cookies or visit Google Analytics' currently available opt-outs for the web.
