INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Our website generally collects your personally identifiable information when you choose to provide it to us, for instance, when you voluntarily submit it through the website. Examples of some of the ways you may provide information are when you contact us (by email, website form or otherwise). You may provide us with your name, email address, home or work address or telephone number. You may also provide us with your information if you apply for a position with one of our companies.

We may use electronic images known as web beacons or single-pixel GIFs to assist us in delivering cookies on our sites or collecting information about website usage, email response and tracking. Like cookies, these small files do not store, record or share any information about you.

These vendors can provide us with anonymous usage data to allow us to improve our website.

HOW WE HELP PROTECT PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
We make reasonable efforts to protect personally identifiable information that you submit over the website. However, we do not warrant or represent that the level of security meets or exceeds any particular standard and no server or internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error free. Please take this into account when submitting personal information or confidential information on any website, including ours. Similarly, any information you send us in an email message is not confidential, secure or privileged. Email messages may be viewed by third parties, lost, intercepted or altered. Email messages may be sent across national borders even when the sender and recipient are located in the same country. We will not be liable for any damages suffered in connection with the use of emails or any other electronic system used to communicate with us.
STORAGE OF EMAIL
All incoming and outgoing email messages are automatically stored in our Electronic Message Repository for evidentiary purposes. The emails are protected by legal, technical and organizational measures. They may only be accessed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations (see HOW WE MAY USE OR SHARE YOUR INFORMATION above). If you do not approve of the retention of private email messages by us, we strongly advise you not to send private, non-business related emails to our employees.
