When you sign up to receive any of our newsletters, respond to a survey, register for a class, or purchase any product or service, you may be required to provide us with personal information about yourself, such as your name, address, email address, and phone number. We do not collect any personal information from Visitors when they use the Websites unless they provide such information voluntarily, such as by registering or sending us an email or signing up for a newsletter. All information we collect and/or receive under this section is collectively called “Personal Information.”
When you place an Order, you must provide us with certain information about the products and services you are seeking to purchase. Such information is collectively called the “Order Information.”
In addition to the information noted above, we may collect additional information (collectively, the “Other Information”). Such Other Information may include:
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular website. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
Like most companies, we use traffic log cookies and similar tools such as pixels, web beacons, and local storage to identify what information is being used and accessed by our users. This helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to our users. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with better services, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer, but it may prevent you from taking full advantage of our Programs, Products and Services.
We use third party analytics and tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for our Programs, Products and Services. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Programs, Products and Services, including the website pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving our Programs, Products and Services. We collect and use this analytics information in the aggregate with analytics information from other users so that we cannot reasonably determine the identity of any particular individual user.
