HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION.
INFORMATION COLLECTED VIA TECHNOLOGY.
We may contract with online partners to help manage and optimize our organization’s internet presence and communications. For example, we may use the services of a marketing company to help us measure the effectiveness of our branding and how visitors use our Site. To do this, we may use web beacons, clear GIFs and cookies provided by our marketing company on this Site. The information collected helps us learn things like how our message is being spread, what kinds of users our Site attracts, and what kinds of content our users like to see.
We are excited to share information with you, so our Site may contain links to third party websites. These other websites have their own privacy statements that govern your activities on those sites, and we are not responsible for the content on or privacy practices of such websites you visit once you navigate away from our Site. Providing a link to any other websites does not represent our endorsement of such websites or the content posted on such websites.

We use Personal Information you give us to provide you access to the Site, respond to your requests, to send you our newsletter, to improve the Site, and to offer you additional information, opportunities, and functionality related to the Site. We may de-identify your Personal Information and create Non-Personal Information records to analyze usage patterns so that we can enhance our Site, but these records will not be able to be used to identify you individually. We reserve the right to use and disclose Non-Personal Information to third-parties.
In addition, we may disclose your Personal Information:

Please be aware that when you voluntarily transmit or post comments or Personal Information on public portions of the Site, that information will be displayed to anyone who has access to those postings or transmissions and can be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. We cannot be responsible for Personal Information you voluntarily display, disclose, or distribute on the Site.
We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your Private Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Even though we have taken reasonable steps to ensure that your Private Information is not intercepted, accessed, used, or disclosed by unauthorized persons, you should know that we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. You assume all responsibility and risk for your use of the Site and the information you post or access through the Site.
