We only collect personally identifiable information about you if you voluntarily provide it to us. You have the option as to whether or not to provide any personally identifiable information to us.

Cookies, Web Server Logs, Web Beacons, and Other Tracking Technologies
Similar to a cookie, a Local Shared Object is a collection of data that a web site running Adobe® Flash® technology can place on your hard drive to recognize a repeat visitor and store settings and other information.
Web Server Logs/IP Addresses. We may track the total number of visitors to our website, IP addresses, and the domain names of your Internet Service Providers. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet, which allows computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. We may analyze this information for general trends in the aggregate, but such information will be in aggregate form only and it will not contain personally identifiable data.
Web Beacons. Certain web pages or e-mails we send you may contain visible or invisible embedded content acting as a “web beacon” (also known as an “action tag” or “transparent GIF technology”) to recognize when a user visits our website or opens an email. Web beacons help us analyze the effectiveness of our website. Web beacons, cookies and other tracking technologies do not automatically obtain personally identifiable information about you. Only if you have provided us personally identifiable information, such as through a registration, sending e-mails, or a request for information or materials, can these automatic tracking technologies be used to provide further information about your use of our website.
