We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking). We support the Do Not Track (DNT) browser settings.

We do not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may tie this information to personally identifiable information about you that we collect from other sources or you provide to us.
To help us determine the effectiveness of our advertising, we work with Web analytics tools hosted by third parties who receive non-identifiable information from your browser, including the site or the advertisement you came from, your IP address, your general geographic location, your browser and platform information, and the pages you view within our site.

We may use the information we have collected from you to enable us to display advertisements to our advertisers’ target audiences. Even though we do not disclose your personal information for these purposes without your consent, if you click on or otherwise interact with an advertisement, the advertiser may assume that you meet its target criteria.
This Website may use the Google AdWords (and other such) services to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our Website.
This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to our Website users based on their visit to our site and other sites on the Internet. No personally identifiable information is collected as part of Google’s process. Users may opt out of the use of this DART cookie by visiting Google’s privacy document .
We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

We may, however, provide your personally identifiable information that we collect and the data generated by cookies to the vendors and service agencies that we may engage to assist us.
We may also disclose your personally identifiable information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation or other government authority.
