We have a contact form on this website for visitors who may either be interested in our services or have a question/comment for us to respond to.  All information filled out in the form (name, phone, email, questions/comments) is kept confidential and will never be given or sold to any other party.  Unless requested from the visitor (end-user), we may provide some information to another party based on their request but will do our best to be extra careful when providing such information.

Statistical Data

We may collect statistical data occasionally for research and marketing purposes.  Please note that all statistical data is not in anyway tied to the visitor.  We will not collect any personal information on statistical data.

Statistical data is used to show us where and how users are finding our website.  The data we collect may relate to what keywords were typed or searched on an online search engine (i.e. Google, Yahoo, Bing).  General geographic location may also be looked at to see where users are viewing our website.  We may also look at general numbers as far as the number of times the site was viewed, the time of day it was visited, or whether the site was visited by a previous-user or new-user.

Cookies and Cache Files
Typically when a website is visited, a "cookie" is temporarily stored in your web browser or temporary internet files.  Cookie's are bits of information that are stored on your computer that allows websites to track information like what pages of the site have being viewed.

Cache files basically allows your web browser to load faster.  Anytime you visit a website, content such as text, photos, videos will be temporarily downloaded in a cache file so that the next time you visit the same site, rather than downloading everything directly over the internet, it will allow a portion of the site to load faster using the content from the cached files.  This helps the user to browse through pages faster.

You do have the ability to delete these file after each session.  All information that may be stored on your computer from our website does not contain any personal information and is only used for statistical purposes.  Your web browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari), should have instructions on how to delete these files after each session should you choose to do so.

You may contact us if you have any questions regarding this privacy policy or any portion of our website.
