The types of passive information collected by this site include, without limitation, your IP address, which type of browser you are using, where you go on our site, and how long you stay on any part of our site. Passive information does not identify you to us by name, and we do not link your IP address to your personally identifiable information.

3. SHARING OF INFORMATION
Third Party Service Providers– From time to time, we may decide that it is more efficient to use third parties to perform specific services, such as sending newsletters to our users.

These third party service providers are only allowed to use personally identifiable information for the purpose of providing the specific services requested by us.
