1. What Personal Information Do We Collect?

Information You Provide.
We receive and store information you enter. For example, when you search for or use a product or service, or when you supply information such as your address, phone number or credit card. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future services for you, improving our website, and communicating with you. In addition, if you choose, we may share your information with other institutions who provide similar services that you are interested in.

Cookies.
Like many websites, we use "cookies". Cookies are small programs that we transfer to your hard drive that allow us to recognize you and to provide you with a customized experience.

Agents.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Special Offers.
We may send you special offers from time to time. In addition, we may also send you special offers from other companies. If we send you offers from other businesses, we do not share your personal information with them.

Business Transfers.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets. In such transactions, information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that we are acquired, information will be one of the transferred assets.

Law Enforcement.
If we receive a lawful court order to release account or other personal information then we will comply with the law. We will also release information when necessary to protect the life, safety or property of others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection.

3. How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.

We use encryption to protect your information contained in our customer list.

We use a firewall to protect against unlawful intrusion.

We limit access to your information on a "need to know" basis.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

No system can guarantee absolute security, just as the finest lock can not guarantee physical security. However, we take every reasonable precaution to assure that your data is secure.
