We collect information from you when you voluntarily submit information to the Web Site. The following are examples of Personal Information that we may collect from you:
Examples of information we collect may include:
We may collect Personal Information directly from you in the following circumstances:
Your Personal Information will not be distributed or shared with third parties unless it is to transact such Services as you have contracted us to do or to comply with any legal processes and/or law enforcement requests. We may also use your Personal Information for the marketing and/or promotion of our products or services. We may outsource all of these tasks to third parties. If you have received an email from us, and you wish to no longer receive emails, please click the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of the email.
Except as disclosed above, we do not collect Personal Information about visitors to this site or our customers who use this site. We do routinely gather data on Web Site activity, such as how many people visit the site, the pages they visit, where they come from, how long they stay on the site, etc. The data is collected on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means that no Personal Information is associated with the data. This data helps us improve site content and overall usage. The information is not shared with other organizations for their independent use.
Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and/or across different websites. Our Services do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Services and after you leave our Services.
We maintain standard Web logs that record data about all visitors and customers who use the Web Site and we store this information for a while. These logs may contain the Internet domain from which you access the site (such as aol.com, abc.org, etc.); the IP address which is automatically assigned to your computer when you get on the Internet (a static IP address may be identifiable as being connected to you, while a dynamic address is usually not identifiable); the type of browser and operating system you use; the date and time you visited the site; the pages you viewed on the site; the address of the web site you linked from, if any. If you sign on to this web site to use its secured features, our Web logs will also contain an individual identifier and show the services you have accessed.
All Web logs are stored securely, and may only be accessed by our staff on a need-to- know basis for a specific purpose to use web log information to help us design our site, to identify popular features, to resolve user, hardware, and software problems, and to make the Web Site more useful to visitors.
We may place Internet “cookies” on the computer hard drives of visitors to the Web Site. Information we obtain from cookies helps us to tailor our site to be more helpful and efficient for our visitors. The cookie consists of a unique identifier that does not contain information about you.
You may have software on your computer that will allow you to decline or deactivate Internet cookies, but if you do so, some features of this site may not work properly for you. For instructions on how to remove cookies from your hard drive, go to your browser’s web site for detailed instructions. In addition, further information regarding cookies may be available on other web sites or from your Internet service provider. Firefox and Google Chrome are two common browsers.
We may use a third-party vendor to help us manage some of our e-mail communications with you. While we do supply this vendor with e-mail addresses of those we wish them to contact, your e-mail address is never used for any purpose other than to communicate with you on our behalf. When you click on a link in an email, you may temporarily be redirected through one of the vendor’s servers (although this process will be invisible to you) which will register that you’ve clicked on that link, and have visited the Web Site. We never share any information, other than your e-mail address, with our third-party e-mail vendor, which does not share these e-mail addresses with anyone else.
Even if you have given us permission to send e-mails to you, you may revoke that permission at any time by following the “unsubscribe” information at the bottom of the e-mail.
We may disclose personal information to any person performing audit, legal, operational, or other services for us. We will use information which does not identify the individual for these activities whenever feasible. Information disclosed to vendors or contractors for operational purposes may not be re-disclosed to others by such a vendor or contractor.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
We may collect data from third party web sites (“Third Party Sites”). The use of personal data of users from Third Party Sites is restricted to necessary operations of our business and is used by staff on a need-to-know basis. The use of any data derived from Third Party Sites will be utilized in accordance with Third Party Sites terms of services as outlined on such Third Party Site pages.
If a user makes a request to receive information in an ongoing manner through this Web Site by providing their e-mail address (for example, requesting a subscription to one of our online publications), we may send you emails for the marketing and/or promotion of our products or services. If you have received an email from us, and you wish to no longer receive emails, please click the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of the email.
In order to accept payments as a Contributor, you may need to enter personal information including your address, full name, and tax identification information. We will not sell this information and it will be only accessible on a need to know basis for payment and tax purposes.

Please note that data that is transported over an open network, such as the Internet or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. When disclosing any Personal Information via an open network, you should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. Your data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorized parties. We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of your Personal Information or data during its transfer via Internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary or prudent for security reasons.
