The types of information we gather
Our website gathers two types of information about its users, personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally, identifiable information
Personally identifiable information includes, for example, your first and last name, e-mail address and telephone number. We may collect personally identifiable information about you through various means. For example, you may directly provide us with personally identifiable information when contacting us via the “Sending us a message” section on our contact us page of our website, or by requesting an appointment. We may also collect personally identifiable information about you by logging your IP address if your ISP statically assigns your IP address.
Please note that we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from minors younger than 13 years of age. By providing us with personally identifiable information, you are representing that the person whose information you are providing is not a minor. If you are a minor, please have a parent or guardian review this policy and request any information you are seeking on your behalf.
Non-personally identifiable information
In addition to the personally identifiable information that you may voluntarily provide, our website utilizes “cookies” to collect anonymous data about our website. A “cookie” is a small piece of data or data files, which is sent to your computer’s browser, by a website, and subsequently stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are used for statistical tracking purposes and not for individual identification. For example, cookies are used to understand general traffic patterns of a website, including how many visitors access a website, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages of the website were visited. We use this anonymous data, and may share it with third parties, in order to improve the content and functionality of our website, to better understand the needs and interests of our visitors, and to improve our programs and services.
Please note that you may configure your browser to reject all cookies, or to notify you when a cookie is set. However, in order for certain applications on our website to function properly, if at all, it may be necessary for your computer to accept cookies. As each browser is different, please check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie and privacy preferences.
How we use (and do not use) the information we gather
Please note that we reserve the right to release personally identifiable information contained within our access logs concerning any visitor to our website that we reasonably believe has participated in any illegal activity. In addition, we reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information if we are required to do so in order to comply with our legal obligations.
As mentioned above, we use non-personally identifiable information to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of visitors to our website. We may provide statistical information based on this data to current and potential business partners. Additionally, if we sell or transfer some or all of our company assets, we may sell or transfer non-personally identifiable information as part of such transaction.
