What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our website you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis, and website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website.
Personal Information You Choose to Provide
We may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information including your email address, postal address, home or work telephone number, and other personal information for such purposes as correspondence, placing an order, requesting an estimate, or participating in online surveys.
If you choose to correspond with us through email we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protection for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
Website Use Information
Our site may utilize a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the sites visited just before and after ours. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.
How Do We Use the Information You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing service and support, and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. The lists used to send you product and service offers are developed and managed under standards designed to safeguard the security and privacy of all personal information provided by our users. You may notify us at any time should you desire not to receive these offers.
What Are Cookies?
Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a website. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that website by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related web pages. This makes it easier for users to move from web page to web page and complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.
How Do We Use Information Collected From Cookies?
We use website browser software tools such as cookies and web server logs to gather information about browsing activities in order to constantly improve our website and better serve our users. This information helps us continually improve our website to better meet the needs of our users and prospective users.
Cookies help us collect important business and technical statistics. This information lets us trace the paths users follow to our website as they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow us to count how many people visit our website and evaluate our website’s visitor capacity. We do not use these technologies to capture your individual email address or any personally identifying information about you.
Notice of New Services and Changes
Occasionally we may use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website, new services, and special offers we think you will find valuable. You can notify us of your desire not to receive these offers by clicking on a response box when you receive such an offer or by sending us an email request.
How Do We Secure Information Transmissions?
When you send confidential personal information to us on our website, secure server software encrypts it before it is sent to us. The information is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches our website.
Other email that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information such as social security, credit card, or account numbers through unsecured email.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
Information Security — We utilize encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction.
Evaluation of Information Protection Practices — Periodically, our operations and business practices are reviewed for compliance with organizational policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality, and quality of our information.
Employee Access, Training and Expectations — Our organizational values, ethical standards, policies, and practices are committed to the protection of user information. In general, our business practices limit employee access to confidential information and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes, and transactions.
How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?

Do We Disclose Information to Outside Parties?
What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
