It is important to understand how and why any website will manage your information.

We have developed a Privacy Policy that details how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. Understanding our policies and practices is important. If you have questions or concerns, visit our contact page for assistance.

Use of our services relies on many standard web technologies, and the visitation of any page may result in the saving of small amounts of data (known as cookies) or larger amount of data (local storage) into your computer without notice. The storage consumed on a device accessing our services is negligible. Our services may not work properly if these storage mediums are not present or are disabled.

"Do not Track" settings will not result in a difference in the behavior of our tracking utilities.
