We understand that privacy online is important to users of our Site. This statement governs our privacy policies with respect to those users of the Site (“Visitors”).

We may collect basic user profile information from all of our Visitors, such as email address, if the visitor subscribes to our mailing list and name if the visitor comments on a post.
What organizations are collecting the information?
In addition to our direct collection of information, our third party service vendors may collect this information from our Visitors. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they use personal information provided to them from our Visitors. Some of these third parties may be intermediaries that act solely as links in the distribution chain, and do not store, retain, or use the information given to them.
How does the Site use PII?
We use PII to customize the Site and to make appropriate service offerings on the Site. We may email Visitors about research or purchase and selling opportunities on the Site or information related to the subject matter of the Site. We may also use PII to contact Visitors in response to specific inquiries, or to provide requested information.
With whom may the information may be shared?
We may share aggregated information about our Visitors, including the demographics of our Visitors, with our affiliated agencies and third party vendors. We also offer the opportunity to opt out of receiving information or being contacted by us or by any agency acting on our behalf.
What choices are available to Visitors regarding collection, use and distribution of the information?
Visitors may opt out of receiving unsolicited information from or being contacted by us and/or our vendors and affiliated agencies by responding to emails as instructed, or by contacting us.

What partners have access to PII from Visitors on the Site?
We will disclose PII in order to comply with a court order or subpoena or a request from a law enforcement agency to release information. We will also disclose PII when reasonably necessary to protect the safety of our Visitors.
How does the Site keep PII secure?
All of our employees are familiar with our security policy and practices. The PII of our Visitors is only accessible to a limited number of qualified employees who are given a password in order to gain access to the information. We audit our security systems and processes on a regular basis. While we take commercially reasonable measures to maintain a secure site, electronic communications and databases are subject to errors, tampering and break-ins, and we cannot guarantee or warrant that such events will not take place and we will not be liable to Visitors for any such occurrences.
How can Visitors correct any inaccuracies in PII?
Visitors may contact us to update PII about them or to correct any inaccuracies by contacting us.
