Data collection policies and methods
Depending on how a visitor uses our site, we may collect their personal data, including a first and last name, email address, phone number, and physical address.
We use a Wufoo form to collect the data visitors submit through our Newsletter Signup page. Visitors who opt-in to receive our newsletter provide an email address, as well as their first and last name. This data is used strictly for the purpose of adding the visitor to our list of newsletter subscribers. Please read the Wufoo Privacy Statement to learn more about Wufoo’s privacy practices.
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.
Users may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings.
