Website Visitors
Like most website operators, We collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Our visitors use Our Website. From time to time, We may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of Our Website.

We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Our blog posts. We only disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that We use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Our Website choose to interact with Us in ways that require Us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that We gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, We ask visitors who request a complimentary website audit or the implementation of any type or combination of types of service campaign(s) at Our Website to provide their name, telephone, email address, as well as their city and state of domicile and/or business’ location. When visitors leave comments on Our Website, We collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from Your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if You are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of Your comment, Your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of Your comment.

The security of Your Personal Information is important to Us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Your Personal Information, We cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Ads appearing on Our Website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set Cookies. These Cookies allow the ad server to recognize Your computer each time they send You an online advertisement to compile information about You or others who use Your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to You. This Privacy Policy covers Our use of Cookies and does not cover the use of Cookies by any advertisers.

Links To External Sites
Our Service may contain links to external sites that are not operated by us. If You click on a third party link, You will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise You to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site You visit.

We use Cookies to help Us identify and track visitors, their usage of Our Website, and their Website access preferences. Those visitors who do not wish to have Cookies placed on Their computers should set Their browsers to refuse Cookies before using Our Website, with the drawback that certain features of Our Website may not function properly without the aid of Cookies.

By continuing to navigate Our Website without changing Your Cookie settings, You hereby acknowledge and agree to Our use of Cookies.

How long we retain your data
