This policy describes the types of personally identifiable information (“PII”) and non-personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”) we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit our website and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information. PII includes information such as your name, address, phone number, ZIP code, email address and similar information. Non-PII is non-personally identifiable information, and may include, for example, your IP address, browser type, domain names, access dates and similar information.
Personal Information We Collect and How We Collect It
You can visit us on the internet without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself, including your email address. In this case, our web servers may collect the name of the domain you used to access the internet (such as aol.com) and the website you came from and visit next. This information is used by us and our business partners to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views and other statistics about visitors to our website in general. We also use this data to monitor site performance and to make the site easier and more convenient to use.
There are times when we may ask you for information about yourself to assist us in meeting your various needs. In these cases, your browsing will no longer be anonymous to us. To provide these services, we may need to ask you directly to provide, among other things, your name, Social Security number, physical address, ZIP code, email address and phone number.
Please note that we do not knowingly solicit information from children and we do not knowingly market our products or services to children.

Handling of ‘Do Not Track’ Signals
The California Online Privacy Protection Act provides that a website operator must:
“Disclose how the operator responds to web browser ‘do not track’ signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services, if the operator engages in that collection.”
It is important for you to know that we do not engage in the type of collection referenced in the California law.
