Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personal information while on our site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For session cookies once the user closes his/her browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user's hard drive for an extended period of time.

For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, he/she may still use our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

Newsletter

If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information, such as name and email address.

When users subscribe to a newsletter, their information is captured by a third party email marketing service (www.benchmark.com).

Security

We take every precaution to protect our users' information.

When you submit sensitive information via the Website (such as credit card number), your information is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - Secure Socket Layer (SSL).

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information offline. Our site and all customer data reside on our secure in-house server, behind our firewall. We use VeriSign as our Certification Authority (CA). Our customer database is backed up regularly, and access to personal account information is limited to only those employees who need the information to perform a specific job. Employees must use password-protected screen-savers when leaving their work area, which further protects customer information from unauthorized access.

All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. During orientation, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information remains secure and protected at all times. If you have any questions about the security at our Website, you can send an email to .
