The collected information will be used primarily for our own internal purposes, such as providing, maintaining, evaluating, and improving our services and website, fulfilling information requests, and providing customer support.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. If we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a “closed lock’ icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the website. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we will also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific task (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use “cookies” on this website. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a website visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our website and identify repeat visitors to our website. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in with a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our website. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our website. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our website.
We will not sell or otherwise provide the information we collect to outside third parties for the purpose of direct or indirect mass email marketing. We will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
- cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on our company
- protect and defend the rights or property of our website and related properties; or
- identify persons who may be violating the law, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing our website or its related properties.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online (for example, through e-mail, discussion boards, or elsewhere) that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
This website contains links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our website and to read the privacy statements of any other website that collects personally identifiable information.

Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this website.
