Web Site Data Collection Practices
We collect some information about visitors indirectly through standard web logs, including IP address, what browser is being used (e.g., Netscape), and the domain name from which a visitor entered the site (e.g.,www.yourcompany.com). We normally use this information in the aggregate to administer and improve our web site. Some data may be traceable to an individual, but we do not normally seek to identify individuals unless we believe that someone is using our site improperly.
Some existing customers come to our web site with IDs and passwords already assigned. Others who register at our web site are asked to provide standard contact information, such as name, mailing and email addresses, and telephone numbers.
Through our web site, we provide opportunities for users to transmit information. A user who agrees will be asked to provide contact information (e.g., name, mailing address, email address, telephone and fax number) that we will use to provide coordination about the content being transmitted.
