We are committed to protecting the privacy of all personal information collected by us and under our possession or control.
As used in this policy, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual, such as age, home address, home phone number, income, ethnic origin, date of birth, race, marital status, fingerprints and medical records.
In general, personal information does not, for example, include the name, title, business address, business e-mail address, and business telephone or facsimile number of an employee of an organization.
Our web site may contain links to other web sites. You should review the Privacy Statement/Policy of the other web sites as they may differ from ours.
Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites.
We identify the purpose for which the personal information is collected before or at the time of collection.
We collect personal information that you provide to us voluntarily whether over the web site, by email, mail, fax, telephone or other communication means.
We typically obtain an individual’s consent to collect, use or disclose his or her personal information before or at the time of collection. In certain circumstances, consent is sought after the information has already been collected but before use.
We limit the collection of personally identifiable information to those details that are necessary for the purposes identified.
When you visit our site non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by our website administrator. The type of non-personal information collected includes the date and time of your visit, the address of the website you linked from and the duration of your visit.
Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention
We do not sell or rent your personally identifiable information or share it with outside parties, except as provided for in the section entitled "Exceptions to Use" as set out below.
We retain personal information for as long as it is required for the identified purpose or as required by law.
We keep personal information we collect as accurate, complete and up-to-date as possible to fulfill the purposes for which it is collected.
Safeguards & Security
We protect personal information we collect with security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. Keep in mind that personal information transmitted to us by e-mail or otherwise through our web site, is transmitted without encryption. In other words, the information is not converted into code text but instead is sent in the same form as submitted by you on our site. Although it is unlikely that a third party will intercept the transmission, there is always a possibility of that occurring.
Upon request, you may review and verify the accuracy and completeness and request changes to your personal information that is in our possession or control. If you become aware of any inaccuracy or incompleteness, please notify us by e-mail or mail as provided below in the section entitled “Challenging Compliance”.
