Please know that we are committed to protecting and appropriately handling the private and personal information of users and visitors to this Site.  We are publishing this Privacy Statement to let you know how we handle personal information in this Site.  We may, from time-to-time, update this privacy notice so we encourage you to periodically review this policy.  We will notify you about material changes in the way we treat personal information by placing a notice on our site.

1.  Collection and Use of Information

We take your privacy very seriously.  You can visit and enjoy many of our Sites without disclosing any personal information about yourself.

Generally, we will not disclose or share any visitor information (including your e-mail address) with anyone outside Our Organization without your permission.

In all such efforts we will take steps to safeguard your information.
