Collecting Personally Identifiable Information

In the course of performing our services and operating our business, we seek and collect personal information data that could potentially be used to identify an individual (“PII”).

We may use third party service providers to assist us in collecting and maintaining this PII.

We may collect PII from you when you visit or use our Site. We also collect PII when you contact us through the Site.

We may receive PII about you from other sources, including publicly available databases or third parties from whom we have obtained data, and combine this data with information we already have about you. This helps us to update, expand, and analyze our records, identify new business or leads, and provide information on products and services that may be of interest to you. Examples of the types of PII that may be obtained from public sources or third parties and combined with information we already have about you may include: (a) address information from third party sources to verify your address so we can properly communicate with you; and/or (b) data about you from third parties that is combined with information we already have about you to create tailored advertising and products.

We may maintain records that include PII collected from you in the course of performing our services and operating our business.
