  1. The Data We Collect

Anonymous Electronic Information. In general, you can browse the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.  However, we collect your computer’s or mobile device’s IP address, which you necessarily disclose when you visit the Site or download or use the App so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to your computer or device. 

Cookies. The Site or App may utilize "cookies," which are text files placed on your computer or device that web pages or screens may use to store data on your computer or mobile device or send data to our web servers.  We may use cookie data to "recognize" you when you return to the Site or the App, to save your user ID, to track usage information, to troubleshoot how the Site or App operates, and for internal analysis of how people use the Site or App.  Should you decide not to accept cookies from the Site or App, you will limit the functionality we can provide you. 

Additional Electronic Information.  We may use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons, tracking pixels, and other similar technologies, to track your use of the Site or App.  We may also use identifiers for mobile devices in the App (e.g., Android Advertising Identifier or Advertising Identifier for iOS) or similar technology that are used to collect data, such as type of device, operating system information, carrier, and network type.

By using the App, you consent to the storing and accessing of cookies and other information on your device where such activity occurs in connection with our use of Google Analytics for Firebase. 

Location Information. We may collect information about your location if you provide your address or zip code or we may approximate your location based on your IP address.  If you provide our App access to location services on your device, we and our third party providers may collect location data through GPS, Wi-Fi, wireless network triangulation or other similar methods.

The Site is not designed to respond to "do not track" requests from web browsers.

Through Your Interactions with Us.  When you engage in certain activities on the Site or App, such as using the Contact Us feature on the Site, or completing a user profile in the App, we may ask you to provide personal and other information.  The information we will require will depend on the activity.  If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. You may also limit your ability to use all or a portion of the Site or App.  If you are a registered user of the Site or App, we may track when and how you use the Site or App and the operations you perform on the Site or App.

Information Obtained from Other Sources.  We may obtain information about you from other companies and organizations, such as vendors that may perform certain operations on our behalf.  We may combine such information with information we have collected or may collect about you.  We may also collect information that is publicly available.  For example, we may collect information about you when you interact with us through social media. We are not responsible for the accuracy of any information provided by other sources or the data practices of other sources.

All communications must be in the English language.  Please clearly state what information you are requesting and any other requests you are making.  You can designate an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf.

We will respond to reasonable requests within the time limits established by applicable law or within a reasonable time if no time limit is established by applicable law. 

If you or your authorized agent sends us an email requesting that we take action regarding your personal information or the right to be forgotten, the requesting email MUST come from the email address we have on file for you in order to verify that the request is valid and also to protect your personal information.  All other requests must be made in writing or otherwise be verifiable as originating from you or your authorized agent.  In order to protect your information and because people may have the same name, we will only provide or delete personal information that we can verify is associated with your particular email address or where we can reasonably identify the identity of the requestor. 

For your protection, we may ask you for additional information to verify your identity.  In most cases, we will provide the information you request and correct or delete any inaccurate personal information you discover. We reserve the right, however, to limit or deny your request to the extent permitted by applicable law if: (a) complying with the request may present a threat to the personal safety, property, or rights of any other person or organization; (b) complying with the request may lead to a violation of applicable laws or regulations; (c) we are not required to comply with the request because of a legal rule or exception; or (d) you have failed to provide us with sufficient evidence to verify your identity.  We will not delete personal information if that personal information is related to an ongoing transaction.  Even after a request, we may also keep personal information where necessary to comply with applicable laws or where necessary to protect a legal right or fulfill a legal obligation.  

  1. How Long We Keep Personal Information

We store the personal information we collect about you for as long as is necessary for the purpose(s) for which we collected it, or for other legitimate business purposes, including to meet our legal, regulatory, or other compliance obligations.
