Automatic Gathering of Information by Third Parties. When you visit any of Our Sites, third parties can and may collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different websites pertaining to your visit to, or use of, our and others’ websites.
Do-Not-Track Requests. Do-not-track requests are typically made through web browser settings that control signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. We do not respond to do-not-track signals if enabled by the user.
How Your Personal Information is Used. We use your Personal Information to connect you with third parties who will provide you with the services that you have requested and perform functions as described to you at the time of collection. Therefore, when you submit your Personal Information to us, we use that information to contact you and/or allow a third party or third-party affiliate to contact you, including by use of an automatic telephone dialing system, via email, telephone, postal mail, and mobile device even if the telephone number you submitted appears on any state and/or federal Do Not Call Registry, because your inquiry creates an exception to state and/or federal Do Not Call laws.

Finally, we use your Personal Information for certain business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, developing new products, enhancing Our Sites, improving our services, identifying usage trends, and determining and improving the effectiveness of our promotional and advertising campaigns.
