We want to maintain your trust, and so we want you to be familiar with how we collect, use, and disclose your information. Our customers are people – not just data! Now a word from the attorneys.
In general, we may receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. Information we collect is categorized as Non-Personal Information and Personal Information.
Non-Personal Information is information that does not personally identify you or your household. Non-Personal Information may be derived from personal information by removing individual identities in a way that it cannot be reasonably linked to an individual.
