What Information Do We Collect?
We collect personal information you choose to provide to us in connection with your activities on the site. This information may include your name, phone number, email address, the content of messages you may send us, and the like.
Other User Information We Collect:
In addition, for each visitor to our site, we automatically gather certain other potentially identifying information and store it in log files. This information includes (as applicable) IP address, date/time stamp, and pages you visit on our site. We collect and store this information on an individual basis and in aggregate, or combined, form.
“Do Not Track” Signals:
We do not currently have the capability to recognize browser “Do Not Track” signals. We adhere to the standards set forth in this Policy.
To determine how many users visit our site, how often they visit the site, and to better understand the areas of greatest interest to our visitors, we use a tool called “Google Analytics” to compile this information for us. As a result of your visit to our site, Google may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of analytics tools with personally identifiable information. For more information about the analytics company’s ability to use and share information about your visits to this site, see http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.
We do not use third-party ad networks, targeted advertising, or display ads on the website.
How Do We Use and Share the Information We Collect?
We store and process your personal information to fulfill requests for information and respond to other messages you send through our Contact page, to send newsletters on request, and to provide other services through the site. We may send occasional emails on topics we think will interest you; you may unsubscribe from these emails at any time. We may also use information we collect to analyze trends, to administer the site, and to improve the site and make it more useful to visitors.
We do not rent or sell or otherwise share your personal information to unaffiliated third parties, except as described above.
How Long Do We Keep the Information We Collect?
We will retain your personal information in accordance with our continuing need to service this relationship, to improve our site, and/or as may be required by law.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, and to guard that information against loss, misuse, or alteration. Please note, however, that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we use commercially reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

From time to time, the site may link you to other websites (“Linked Sites”), some of which are not owned by us, even though they provide goods or services related to our company. Browsing and interacting on another website is subject to that website’s own terms and policies. We make no representations about the privacy policies or practices of the Linked Sites. Be careful of disclosing any of your personally identifiable information when leaving our site. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of every website that collects personally identifiable information.

Visitors’ GDPR Rights
According to the GDPR a “data subject” is defined as an identifiable natural person. A natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as: a name, an identification number, location data, or online identifier. Alternatively, they may be identified by reference to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person. A data subject may be of any age or nationality.
If you are a data subject within the European Union, you are entitled to certain rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Those rights include:
You have the right to be informed with respect to your personally identifiable information (PII) retained by the Company. As such, you may request access to your data that the Company stores and the rights to either correct or erase your personal data.
We will retain any personally identifiable information you choose to provide to us unless: (a) you request for us to delete the information, (b) we stop using our existing data providers, or (c) at Company’s discretion, we decide to remove the data.
You have the right to seek restrictions on the processing of your data.
You have the right to object to the processing of your data and the right to the portability of your data.
You have the right to withdraw consent provided to the Company concerning the processing of your personal data, as well as the right to withdraw that consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based upon consent that occurred prior to your withdrawal of consent.
You have the right to not be subjected to automated decision-making via pre-ticked boxes, additions to our email marketing lists and the like.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority that has jurisdiction over issues related to the General Data Protection Regulation.
