Information Collected Automatically

In some cases, we may automatically collect information (i.e. without you submitting it) about you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, the IP address of your computer, and the domain name of the web site from which you linked to our site.

Data Security

We have implemented commercially reasonable technical and appropriate organizational measures to help keep your personally identifiable information secure, accurate, current and complete. When our online payment form asks you to submit personally identifiable information, that information is encrypted when it is sent from your browser to our server, using industry standard methods. This industry standard encryption is called Secure Socket Layer or SSL encryption. Your browser will notify you that it is using this SSL encryption by placing a lock symbol at the bottom of your browser window. To learn more about SSL encryption, please visit: Verisign Information Center.

Any information that you submit to our web site is quickly transfered to a secure computer that is not publicly accessible.
