Information Gathering

We gather two types of information during your visits to our website:

  1. information recorded automatically by our servers, and
  2. information that you provide us through email or form submissions.

Our website gathers certain information automatically and stores it in log files and databases. This information includes the Internet Protocol address of the computer you use to access the internet; your browser and operating system; the URL of the pages from which came to our website; the date, time, and duration of your visit; the pages you visit; and the searches you perform.


Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit most websites.

We do not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you. We use only session cookies (named JSESSIONID) to identify your computer so we can tailor your user experience (e.g., display your current search history). These cookies are destroyed when you close your browser. Embedded third-party applications (e.g., Wufoo, YouTube, and Google Analytics) may also install cookies. You are not required to accept cookies to use this site.

If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set, you can do this through your browser settings. Use the Help function in your browser to find out how.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to collect information about use of our website. Google Analytics collects information such as how often people visit, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the Internet Protocol address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics places a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Service and the Google Privacy Policy.

Google Analytics uses cookies to define user sessions, which allows for the collection of data about how visitors are using the website. Google Analytics uses only first-party cookies for data analysis, which means that the cookies are linked to a specific website domain, and Google Analytics will only use that cookie data for statistical analysis related to your browsing behavior on that website. According to Google, the data collected cannot be altered or retrieved by services from other domains.

You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits by disabling cookies in your browser or deleting the Google Analytics cookies.

Information Use

We are careful with all personal information collected. We will not share or sell this information with a third party unless required by law, grant obligation, or license agreement.

We use reasonable precautions to protect against loss of, misuse of, alteration of, or unauthorized access to information provided through use of this website. We are not responsible for any breach of security nor any subsequent actions of third parties that may receive information provided through use of this website as a result of such a breach.


We reserve the right to change this policy at any time. If a material change is made, we will post notice on this page.
