We intend to use information collected only in the normal course of our business and as permitted by law. No personal information is required when you visit our website; however, certain information is collected to help us better provide our products and services.

How We Use Customer Information

We use user information to ensure that the content you view and the products you may purchase accurately meet your needs. The information and data we collect may be used for the following purposes:

  • Addressing areas of confusion and improving the clarity of our content and products

We restrict access to your nonpublic personal information to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information.
