Important Terms Used Throughout this Privacy Policy
Throughout this privacy policy we use several specialized terms. The term “you” applies to users of the public portions of our Site. “Personally Identifiable Information” is information that tells us sensitive, non-public information regarding individuals, like a person’s social security number, bank account number, and certain financial information. “User Information” means all Personally Identifiable Information and any other forms of information supplied by you through the Site such as your e-mail address, street address, or the IP address of your computer.

You may browse portions of the Site that do not require entry of log-in credentials without registration, and without actively entering Personally Identifiable Information. However, certain information may be provided automatically by your web browser or application when entering or utilizing the Site, including, as examples: IP addresses; other device identifiers; browser types; operating systems; access dates and times; and referring and exiting URLs. We may use this information to measure the number of visitors to sections of the Site, to determine from where our visitors linked and to where our visitors link from the Site, and to help us make the Site more useful. For example, we may organize and analyze IP addresses so that we can provide efficient service, improve your user experience, enhance security, monitor usage and produce traffic volume statistics. This type of information may be shared with third parties on an aggregated basis, such as if we choose to disclose site traffic information for marketing or other commercial purposes. We do not use this information alone or in combination with other information to develop consumer profiles.
