In addition to providing the foregoing information to our partners, if you choose to correspond further with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.

2. Web Site Information
What Are Cookies?
Web Server Logs
Server logs help us collect important business and technical statistics. The information in the logs lets us trace the paths followed by users to our Web site as they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow us to count how many people visit our Web site and evaluate our Web site's visitor capacity. We do not use these logs to capture your individual email address or any personally identifying information about you.

How Do We Secure Information Transmissions?
When you send confidential personal information including credit card numbers to us on our Web site, secure server software which we have licensed encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. The information is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches our Web site. Other email that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information such as credit card or account numbers to us through an unsecured email.

We utilize encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction.
