Requests for Information, Newsletters, Surveys, Contests
If a site visitor requests information or wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information (such as name and e-mail address). From time to time, we request information via surveys and contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the site visitor therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose the requested information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address) and demographic information (such as age and zip code). Contact information collected for contests will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used to better understand our visitors, and to improve this site.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our site visitors' information. Sensitive information submitted via the Web site is protected both online and offline. When a registration/order form asks for sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is protected with the best encryption software in the industry-SSL. We also take measures to protect information offline. Access to all collected information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific task are granted access to personally identifiable information.
