We have developed this policy in order for you to understand how our website collects, records, communicates, uses, and secures personally identifiable information. It also sets forth under what circumstances we may disclose this information to certain third parties.
Like most other commercial websites, our website collects non-personally identifiable information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The purpose of collecting such non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website.
Generally, the information requested by our website will be used to provide a website feature or service to you, such as commenting, support, or providing future content better tailored to your interests.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

The information collected by log files includes, but not limited to, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring pages, entry & exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks.
In addition, we use third party services such as Google Analytics to collect, monitor, and analyze such information. We may also use other analytical tools and social media services & apps in future without any further notice to collect, monitor, and analyze such information.
We may share this information internally with our website employees or third-party contractors as needed. This information is only used to improve the website and enhance our visitors’ experience. Raw data logs are retained temporarily only for the website administration.

We will use the information you provide, such as email address and name, only to respond to your inquiry.
