We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site. We deploy cookies from our marketing services partners, that include Google, Bing & LinkedIn. However, we have no access to or control over the cookie these partners provide, and no personally identifiable data is shared with us.
How Collected Data Will Be Used
A user may choose to complete the email newsletter registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to communicate with you via our in-house newsletters. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (email/newsletter signup), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
