Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us – this policy should make that clear. If you have any questions, please give us a call.

This privacy policy (the ‘Policy’) describes how any personally identifying information and non-personal information that is collected and/or received by this website will be treated. This Policy applies only to this website (or ‘site’).

Personal information includes any information about you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, or phone number. This Policy applies only to this website. When you provide us with personal information, you are authorizing us to use that information in accordance with the terms of this Policy, including your right to limit use of your personal information as described in this Policy.

Information Collection, Use and Security

When you supply personal information, we will use it for the purpose for which it was collected (e.g., to send monthly newsletters). We may also use personal information to keep track of a user’s activities on the site, to improve marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyse website usage, to improve our website features, design and content, and to refine our marketing strategies.

This website may also collect personal information from you about a third party (e.g., the site might allow you to send an email or message to a friend, in which case we will need that person’s name and email address). Please note that we use such information only for the specified purpose (e.g., to deliver the email message) and we will not contact the third party again by email unless and until the third party contacts us.

You may have heard of ‘cookies’, which are small files or pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive when you visit a website. The use of cookies is an industry standard and you will find them on most websites. We use cookies to collect information about your use of the site, such as the particular site areas you visit and the activities in which you participate on our website. These cookies do not allow us to collect or receive personal information about you. Most browsers allow you to reject the placement of cookies on your computer, though please note that refusal of cookies at the site you entered may result in an inability to visit certain areas of the website or to receive personalized information when you visit the website.

When you visit this site, we also collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. The IP address data does not contain personal information about you and is used by us and/or the host of our website to administer our site and to determine the number of different visitors to the site.

The non-personally identifiable data collected by using cookies and IP addresses is accessible by certain personnel and third-parties involved in the design and maintenance of the site. This information is used to improve the site, for example, to evaluate what portions are more popular than others, from where visitors came to the site, and to determine how many times certain pages of the site were accessed.

At all times, established appropriate physical, electronic and managerial safeguards are utilized to secure your personal information, and we use industry-standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions.

With Whom We May Share Information

Except as stated in this Policy, we do not sell, transfer or disclose your personal information without your prior consent.

We may release your personal information if required to do so by law, or by search warrant, subpoena or court order, or to a third party to which ownership of our company is transferred via an acquisition, merger, sale of assets or otherwise.

Websites to Which Our Website Links

From time to time, we may provide links to third party websites. This Policy does not apply to those sites, so we encourage and recommend that you review the privacy policies posted on these third-party websites at the time of your first visit.
