We respect the privacy of all visitors to our website. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice to explain our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

We encourage other website developers to adopt similar practices.

Information Collected

We do not collect personal user information for advertisers or any other third parties.

We do not use "cookies" (the little crumbs of information-gathering code some other websites leave behind in your computer) to track our visitors from one session to another.

Our Internet server, the computer where the website is stored, is like most Internet servers in that it maintains a log file of every request for information (including web pages, graphics, and files) from our visitors. The server collects and stores the name of the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our site; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site. The server logs do not provide us with your email address, first or last name, or the physical location of your computer.

Use and Sharing of Information

Information from our server log file is used to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful.

Data retention

We purge the browsing information that we collect regularly.


We reserve the right to modify or amend this Privacy Policy as our website continues to develop, and as we continue to provide our visitors with more services, options, and information. We will post a prominent notice on our website notifying users of any major changes.
