Personal Information

“Personal information” is info that is readily identifiable to a specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual’s name, address, phone number, and email address. A domain name or Internet protocol address is not considered personal information.

We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily participate in an activity that asks for information (i.e., sending an email, participating in a survey, or accessing a service). If you choose not to participate in these activities, your choice will in no way affect your ability to use any other feature of our website.

If personal information is required on the Web site or volunteered by the user, this information is a public record once you provide it, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.

If you have any questions or concerns about keeping information you submit private, please contact us:
