The Types of Information We Collect About You
When you enter and browse the Website, we may collect two different types of information about you: information you provide to us, and information we collect through technology.
Information You Provide to Us. In order to obtain access to certain information or materials provided via the Website, you may have to provide information that we collect and store in a way that allows us to relate it to you personally, including but not limited to your name, e-mail address, mailing address, and phone number. We refer to such information as personally identifiable information. Additionally, we may collect and retain a record of all communications with you.
Information We Collect Through Technology. We may collect information about you through technology. For example, we may collect your IP address each time you request a page during a visit to the Website. (An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet.) At times, we may also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which users browse various parts of the Website.
The Website may also use other technical methods to track and analyze the traffic patterns on the Website, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the Website. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We may also use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that we send our Website users to determine whether such users have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. We may collect the information from use of these technical methods in a form that is personally identifiable.
Cookies and How We Use Them. Cookies are small text files that may be placed on your browser when you visit our Website. Cookies are used primarily for administrative purposes to improve your experience with our Website. For instance, when you return to the Website after logging in, cookies provide information to the Website, including personal information, so that the Website will remember who you are.
Our Use of Your Personally Identifiable Information

How We Use Your Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is information that does not personally identify you, including anonymous information and aggregate data. We may use this information to understand better how our visitors use the Website, research our visitors’ demographics, interests, and behavior, improve the Website, provide visitors with customized services and information, and for other similar purposes. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information. We may share this information with others, such as investors, for information or promotional purposes, and may use this information in any manner permitted by law, but any disclosure that identifies you personally will be governed by Section 2 of this page.
Protection of Information
We endeavor to protect your personally identifiable information. We use technical, administrative, and physical methods to maintain the integrity and security of our databases, including firewalls. However, please be aware that there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet, and third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We will not be responsible or liable for any damages, losses or causes of action arising out of or in connection with the disclosure of your personally identifiable information.
