We may ask you for information that personally identifies you or provides information about yourself (“personal information”) or allows us to contact you to provide a service or a product or carry out a transaction that you have requested (such as requesting information about our company). The personal information we collect may include your name, your address, your telephone number, your email address and other contact information, and other information about services requested through the Site. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, if you choose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our services or respond to questions you may have.
The Site may also collect certain non-personal information about your visit, such as the name of the Internet service provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address through which you access the Internet; the date and time you access the Site; the pages that you access while at the Site and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to the Site.

Use of Personal Information
Except as otherwise required by law, the personal information collected on the Site will be used solely to operate the Site and to provide the service(s) and/or product(s) or carry out the transaction(s) you have requested or authorized. In support of these purposes, the Company may use personal information to provide you with more effective customer service, send promotional or advertising materials to you (see opt-out provisions below), to improve the Site and any related Company products or services, and to make the Site easier to use by eliminating the need for your repeated entry of the same information.

The Company may occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as website hosting, website design or technical support, mailing/shipping, answering customer questions about products and services, and sending information about our products, special offers, and other services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
The Company may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the Company or the Site; or (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Company and the Site. The Company may also disclose personal information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our Terms and Conditions, or protect other users of the Site.
