The only personal information we collect about you on this website is the information that you provide to us by interacting with the site. This information may include, for example, name, mailing address, email address, phone number and other similar types of information. In some cases, you may provide it directly, such as by entering information into an application or online form, and other some cases, you may provide it indirectly, such as through the IP address of the computer or device you use to connect with us online. We may use the personal information you provide us to:

Browsing & Identity
From time to time, however, we may disclose this information to fulfill legal or regulatory obligations or if we determine such disclosure is legally advisable or necessary to protect our rights, the rights of others or to prevent harm (for example, for fraud prevention purposes, we may confirm that your IP address matches the location you enter into an online form). In addition, we may aggregate data about users of our site and use it for statistical or analytic purposes. This information helps us to better understand our site’s users and how to improve our site and our offerings.
Some browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Tracking is not the same as using or collecting information in connection with a single website. For these purposes, tracking refers to collecting personally-identifiable information from consumers who use or visit a website or online service as they move across different websites over time.
For a description of Do Not Track protocols for browsers and mobile devices, or simply to learn more about the choices available to you, you can visit the All About Do Not Track website at http://allaboutdnt.com.

In some cases, this may involve third parties collecting information about your online activities over time and across different sites, as well as require your information to be sent to other countries with data protection standards that differ from those in your home country.
