Collected Information

The information we collect is gathered from several sources, which include product subscriptions, purchases, or registrations, either from print or online forms; website message postings; and survey information and direct or indirect purchases via telephone, direct mail, email, or other electronic sources. From these sources we may collect postal addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers, and/or demographic information for those individuals that volunteer such information. For each visitor to our websites, our Web server automatically recognizes the visitor’s domain name and IP address only. No other identifiable information is collected unless volunteered. In addition, we collect aggregate information on what Web pages visitors visit.

 

How We Use Collected Information

The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web pages, to customize the content and layout of our pages for each individual visitor, and/or to notify visitors about updates to our website. As part of a subscription, purchase, and/or registration agreement, subscribers, purchasers, and registrants will be contacted by us through mail, email, and/or phone to communicate with them about their subscription, purchase, and/or registration. They will be contacted for renewal, requalification, surveys, updates concerning their account profile, and special offers related to their subscription, purchase, and/or registration. We also use the information to contact them for marketing purposes on behalf of other reputable organizations, but we never share or give away this collected information.
