Personally Identifiable Information and Its Use
We may store and process your personally identifiable information in order to fulfill any requests for information that you make of us or to better understand your needs and to learn how to improve our Site offerings. We may also use your personally identifiable information to contact you (for example, we may respond to your comments or requests for information.) This information may include, but is not limited to, your first name, last name, mailing address, postal/zip code, phone number, country, company and e-mail address. You may provide additional information at your discretion. We will not collect any personally identifiable information unless you provide it to us voluntarily. You may opt out of services provided by this Site at any time. If you decide you no longer want to receive these communications, please contact us. Except as explained herein, or on the website itself, the information that you provide to us through the Site will not be sold, shared or rented to any outside organization for marketing or solicitation.
You may make donations to us through the Site. When you make donations through the Site, you will be asked to submit certain information such as your name, mailing address, email address, credit/debit card information, etc. PayPal is our third party service provider that we use to process your credit/debit card transaction.

Contacting Us Regarding Your Personally Identifiable Information
If you have submitted personally identifiable information through the Site, and you would like to review, request changes or have that information deleted from our databases, please contact us. We will then use reasonable efforts to change or remove your personally identifiable information from our files, unless we are entitled or required to retain it pursuant to other agreements or by law. We will use reasonable efforts to supply you with this information and correct any factual inaccuracies in this information. Notwithstanding the prior two sentences, if the laws in your state provide you with additional protections or requires us to comply with more stringent obligations to provide you with, remove, or correct your personally identifiable information, we will comply with those legal requirements.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically
In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include but are not limited to the frequency of your use of the Site or the Site’s electronic correspondence to you and the route by which you choose to access the Site and your use of any available hyperlinks (e.g. using cookies and web beacons). We and our service providers, agents or advisors may process and use this data for purposes including but not limited to, planning Site development, assessing patterns of use, or to include you in e-mail or mailing lists so that we may send you information or updates and or offer you services.
“Cookies” are small text files that are either used for the duration of a session (‘session cookies’), or saved on a user’s hard drive in order to identify that user the next time he/she logs on to the Site (‘persistent cookies’). We may use ‘session cookies’ to identify registered users logging in to the Site. These cookies are deleted from the server soon after the session ends and are not collected or saved. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that, although if you do disable cookies from your browser you may not be able to access certain sections of the Site.
We use reasonable measures to protect personal information from access by unauthorized persons. This includes, among other things, standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection, and site monitoring. We also use reasonable internal controls to protect personal information from misuse by our employees. Unfortunately, no electronic data or transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we use reasonable measures to protect personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted or otherwise provided to the Site or received from the Site. This is especially true for information that is transmitted via e-mail that is unprotected until it reaches our servers. Once a transmission is received, we use the reasonable measures set forth above to secure our servers.
Transfer of Business Assets
As we continue to develop our business, we might acquire or buy other businesses or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that we or substantially all of our assets are acquired, both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable user and customer information will be one of the transferred assets.
