Summary On Our Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
The information we collect is used for the primary purpose of helping us make our website better and more effective for the people who visit it. We do not sell information to 3rd parties. We share with business partners only when it is necessary to facilitate something our users has asked us to do such as; send updates by email, provide electronic versions of materials sent via USPS, etc. More information on the information we collect and how we use such information is available here.
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, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or 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, 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.
We provide you the ability to opt-out of certain email and mail communications, such as our newsletters. For more information or to opt-out of receiving certain such communications, please email [email protected] or follow the unsubscribe instructions that may be included in the email you receive.
