Information We Collect and How We Use It
On some of the pages on the Web site, you may be able to submit queries, download information, or request services. The types of information we collect when you access the Web site may include, without limitation, the following:
- Your Name
- Your Address
- Your Electronic Mail (“Email”) Address
- Your Phone/Fax Number
- IP Address
- Contents of Queries
Some of the information we collect via the Web site is gathered and maintained through the use of “cookies” and other methods. A “cookie” is a small file that is saved on your computer and that contains information about you, such as your user name and password. As a result, we are able to (a) recognize you when you access the Web site so that you do not have to re-enter your personal or other information each time you visit the Web site, (b) customize and personalize the content we make available to you, (c) maintain the “state” of your current visit (e.g., to maintain a list of your most recent searches), and (d) alert you to new features.
In addition we may collect certain non-personal data in connection with the Web site. For example, we may collect information on the browser that you use to access the Web site, the operating system that you are running, what items you clicked on the applicable web page, how long you viewed a certain page, and information about the Web site you accessed immediately before you accessed the Web site. We may aggregate your non-personal data with the non-personal data of our other users or other non-personal data collected offline. We also collect and analyze general traffic patterns within our Web site to help maintain the flow and content of the Web site, and we may use some or all of this anonymous aggregated information to support our commercial activities or for any other reason.
We may from time to time send information and/or offers to the email address you provide to us. If you prefer not to receive such email, please follow the procedures set forth at the end of each such e-mail explaining how to have your email address “removed” from the applicable email list. Alternatively, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to “opt-out” of receiving such email.

We do not knowingly solicit, collect or retain information from any individuals under the age of 13.
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of such information, we have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to attempt to safeguard and secure the information we collect. However, no safeguards or security procedures are completely effective. We urge you to take all reasonable precautions to protect your personal data, which should include never sharing your username and password with anyone.
How to Access or Correct Your Information
You can access your personally identifiable information that we have collected online and that we still maintain by contacting us as described below in “How to Contact Us.” You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows that our records are incorrect, although we may refuse such requests in our sole discretion. To protect your privacy and security, we may also take steps to verify your identity before granting access to your personally identifiable information or permitting you to make corrections.
