However, certain services, requests and features do require that you provide us with some personally identifying information (which may include, but not limited to, name, address, email), as more particularly described below; availing yourself of any of these services, requests and features is voluntary. Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact you.  Please do not send confidential information to us directly through this Websites, or by email to any of the contact email addresses listed on the Websites.

Generally speaking, we collect personally identifiable information to identify our customers, to respond to e-mail and customer service requests, to register and confirm registrations for programs and services, for promotional purposes and to otherwise augment our users’ access to and experience with our Websites.
