Cookies

We use cookies to provide essential functionality to this website, and only in instances where logging in to the website is necessary. As of the last update to this Privacy Policy, logging in is not necessary. We do not use cookies to track your browser activity beyond this website or to collect personal information.

Activity Tracking

We collect data sent from your web browsers as you view this website to help us understand the needs and interests of our website visitors and to assess the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. Some of the information we collect can be used to extrapolate information about visitors to this website, such as your location information, web browser vendor, operating system, and device type. To reduce potential privacy concerns, we obscure IP addresses on our system.

Forms

We use forms to facilitate communication and to provide technical support to website visitors. These forms ask for personally identifiable information. Providing your information is completely optional and voluntary on your part. However, this information may be required to comply with any request.

To help prevent fraud and abuse, IP addresses are collected and transmitted by email with the form’s contents to our email address. Emails received from form submissions are only retained while relevant to an ongoing request and no more than 30 days. We use Rackspace® for our email hosting. By submitting any form on this website, you also acknowledge we are subject to and bound by our agreement with Rackspace’s Privacy Policy.

In such case that you have submitted a form and would like us to expedite the deletion of your information, you may request all data be permanently deleted. To identify your information, be sure you provide either a matching IP address or email address so that we may identify your information to be provided to you or deleted and select to delete or provide you with your information. To receive an export of your data, we may require you to verify both a matching email address and IP address.

Security

When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected by an SSL. Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted securely. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon 🔒 in the address bar, looking for “https” at the beginning of the web address, or use this Godaddy® SSL Checker.

What rights you have over your data

If you have submitted personal information on this website, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you. You can also request that we delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
