Contact forms

Visitors can access most pages of the website without registering or providing any personal information.  Our Contact form asks visitors who register to give us contact information (name and e-mail address).  This information is used to contact the visitor only as requested.  For visitors who register or otherwise give us personal contact information, we will not provide that information to any other organization or individual without the visitor’s express consent.  We might use visitors’ internet provider (IP) addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, and we use them, as necessary, to administer our website.

We are not responsible for the performance of websites operated by third parties or for your business dealings with them.  Therefore, whenever you leave this website, we recommend that you review each website’s privacy practices and make your own conclusions regarding the adequacy of these practices.
