This privacy policy was last updated on June 1, 2018.

We are concerned about privacy issues and want you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose information.  This policy describes our website information collection practices.

Personal Information We May Collect

“Personal Information” is information that identifies you as an individual, such as:

  • Name
  • Telephone number (including work and mobile phone numbers)
  • Email address

If you submit any Personal Information relating to other people to our service providers or us in connection with this website, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use the information by this privacy policy.

How We May Collect Personal Information

Our service providers and we may collect Personal Information in a variety of ways, including:

  • Through our website:  We may obtain personal information through the site, e.g., when you sign up for a newsletter.
  • Online tracking: Because we do not track our website users over time and across third-party websites, we do not respond to browser do-not-track signals.

Based on our concern for your privacy, we do not combine personal information you provide with any other information, nor do we sell, trade, or share any personal information provided by you without your explicit consent.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

 How We May Use Personal Information

 To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may use personal information to respond to your inquiries and fulfill your requests, such as to send you newsletters or to respond to your questions and comments. We may also send administrative information to you, for example, information regarding this website and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies.  You may opt-out of receiving these communications or any communications from us, whenever you wish.

Occasionally (no more than twice per year) we will provide you with updates and announcements concerning our products, promotions, and programs. We will not share or sell your information or allow any third party to contact you on our behalf.

How Personal Information May Be Disclosed

We will only disclose your personal information if we believe it to be necessary or appropriate: (a) under applicable law, including laws outside of the United States of America or your country of residence; (b) to comply with legal process; (c) to respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government bodies outside your country of residence; (d) to enforce our terms and conditions; (e) to protect our operations; (f) to protect our/yours/other’s rights, privacy, safety or property; and (g) to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.

Other Information We May Collect

 “Other information” is any information that does not reveal your specific identity, such as:

  • Browser and device information
  • Server log file information
  • Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies
  • App usage data
  • Demographic information and other information provided by you
  • Location information
  • Aggregated information

We may use and disclose “other information” for any purpose, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Records Retention

We will retain your Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Use of Website by Minors

This website is directed to individuals who are permitted to share their Personal Information without parental consent and we request that other individuals (including individuals under the age of 13) not provide Personal Information through our website.

Sensitive Information

We ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive Personal Information (e.g., information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health or medical condition, criminal background or trade union membership).
