3. Our policies and procedures are designed to protect all of the information that you provide us from unauthorized use or disclosure.
We collect two types of information from you when you visit our website:
1. Personal, Business, and financial information that you knowingly provide by filling out forms and applications (“Personally Identifiable” information).
2. Other, “Non-Personally Identifiable” information such as your browsing history, IP address, and limited demographic information, that our servers obtain while you browse but is not directly associated with you.
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer while using the Internet from which Web servers can automatically identify your computer. Our server gathers your IP address and the webpage from where you linked to our website. Your IP address assists us in administering and optimizing the website for you, analyzing website usage, and diagnosing problems with the website.
We may employ cookies, which are placed on your computer, to assist in tracking some activities on our website, improve the design, and to enhance your experience on our website. Cookies may also store Personally Identifiable information you enter so that you do not have to continually re-enter information. Cookies cannot obtain information from your hard drive, destroy files, or transmit viruses. Cookies can be disabled by altering the settings on your internet browser, but doing so could affect your interaction with our website.
We may also allow third party advertisers on our website to send cookies, but these advertisers do not have access to read our cookies. Other companies’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one.
