Automatically collected information
In order to provide our visitors with a pleasant experience, our web servers collect some technical information automatically upon your visit. This includes your IP address, browser used, and date of visit. This information is collected to enhance our site by supplying us with statistics on web visits, and is only for internal use. No personally identifiable information (name, address, email address, phone, etc…) is collected automatically. The minimal information we do collect is kept confidential, and is used solely in summary form to enhance the services offered, or to publish site usage statistics.

If you send an email to us with a question or comment, and that email contains personally identifying information, that information may be used to contact you in responding to your email, or may be forwarded to another agency for help in responding to you. This information will not be sold, rented, or voluntarily supplied to any agency, commercial or private, unless required by law.
