Personal Information We Collect and How We Collect It
You can visit us on the internet without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself, including your email address. In this case, our web servers may collect the name of the domain you used to access the internet (such as aol.com) and the website you came from and visit next. This information is used to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views and other statistics about visitors to our website in general. We also use this data to monitor site performance and to make the site easier and more convenient to use.
There are times when we may ask you for information about yourself to assist us in meeting your various needs. In these cases, your browsing will no longer be anonymous to us. To provide these services, we may need to ask you directly to provide, among other things, your name, physical address, ZIP code, email address and/or phone number.

Handling of ‘Do Not Track’ Signals
The California Online Privacy Protection Act provides that a website operator must:
“Disclose how the operator responds to web browser ‘do not track’ signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services, if the operator engages in that collection.”
It is important for you to know that we do not engage in the type of collection referenced in the California law.
