Information We Collect
We collect the following types of information on the Site:
- Web Server Traffic Information: We collect and use aggregate data (not information identifying individual users) to understand the number of visitors to the Site, the length of stay, pages visited, Internet Protocol (IP) address, and sources of traffic so that we can improve your experience on the Site.
- Web beacons: The Site also uses web beacons (sometimes called transparent GIFs, clear GIFs, or web bugs) – small strings of code that allow us to deliver a small (usually invisible) graphic image on a web page or in an email. Web beacons help us identify information such as when a page is viewed or a description of the page where a web beacon is placed. We may also incorporate third party web beacons into our site, which will allow the third parties to track the behavior of users across multiple sites and as described below.
- Log files: We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track visitors’ movements and gather broad information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personal information.
- Email interaction: We collect information about your interaction with email messages from us, such as whether messages were opened or links were clicked.
- Analytics:We use third party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Site. These tools collect information sent by your device or the Site, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Site.
- Personal Information You Provide: If you fill out a form or survey, request information, make a donation, or interact with the Site in other ways, we may collect information you provide to us, such as your name, address, city, state, zip code, email address, and telephone number.

We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to detect, prevent or minimize, or otherwise address fraud or other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. Information we receive about you may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent or minimize harm.
