In addition to collecting Personal Information from you, We, our affiliates, subsidiaries and third party contracted or affiliated entities and Our third party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically collect General Information. General Information is information about you or your activities on Our Website that does not identify you personally. This general information includes, without limitation, your IP address, domain server, the type of computer, web browser, operating system or platform you use and referrer data identifying the web pages you visited prior to and after visiting Our Website, your movement and activity within the Website and your geographic location.

Cookies. The Website may place small files, called “cookies” onto your computer. Cookies are data files that websites write onto computer hard drives for record keeping purposes when you visit them. The cookie file then identifies you as a unique user. Cookies make your use of this Website more pleasing and efficient by “personalizing” your Website experience and gathering Website statistical data, such as which parts of the Website you have previously visited, what material you downloaded, your Internet provider’s domain name and country, and the addresses of websites you visited immediately before and after our Website. They enable Us to tailor the information you receive and to assist our affiliates or other third party organizations with whom We have strategic alliances or agreements by identifying you as Our customer or Website user. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, unless you have configured yours not to accept them. You can program your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to use certain portions of the Website and the Website will not be able to customize certain features according to your preferences.
Web Beacons. Small graphic images or web programming code called web beacons (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) may be included on the pages of the Website and in email messages We send you. Web beacons or other similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, such as to count visitors to the Website, monitor how you navigate the Website or to count how many particular articles or links posted on the Website were actually viewed.
Mobile Device Identifiers. Certain mobile service providers uniquely identify mobile devices and We or our third party service providers may receive such device information if you access the Website through a mobile device. Certain features on the Website may require collection of mobile phone numbers and We may associate that phone number to mobile device identification information. Additionally, some mobile service providers operate systems that pinpoint the physical location of devices that use their services. Depending on the provider, We or our third party service providers may receive this information.
Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code designed to collect information about your use of this Website, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded to your computer from our web server or a third party provider, is active only while you are connected to the Website and is deactivated or deleted once you leave the Website.

You consent to any and all such Conveyances of your Personal Information.
Except as provided in this Privacy Policy, We will not sell, trade, or disclose your Personal Information We have collected without your consent.


We use reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your Personal Information, prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and enable the correct use of information. However, you should assume that no data transmitted over the Internet can be 100% secure. Therefore, We do not promise or guarantee, and you should not expect, that your Personal Information or private communications will always remain private.

If you believe that your username or password has been stolen, you are required to notify Us so that necessary measures can be taken immediately.


We generally keep user data on Our server or in our archives for as long as we reasonably need it. We may alter this practice according to changing requirements. For example, We may delete some data if needed to free up storage space. We may keep other data for longer periods if the law requires it. In addition, information posted in a public forum could stay in the public domain indefinitely.

Data management requests are administered in an orderly manner to the extent feasible and within Our direct control. Please note that We have greater control over recently collected data than over archived data. Once data is removed from the system and archived, it may not be feasible to accommodate specific requests. In those cases, Our general data retention policy applies and such data is maintained for as long as We reasonably need it, in Our sole and absolute discretion.
