What Categories of Information Do We Collect About Individuals Who Use or Visit

Pursuant to California Business and Professions Code § 22575(a)(1), we collect certain kinds of personally identifiable information about you. Personal identifiable information is information, such as your first and last name and email address, which allows us to identify who you are and to contact you. We may require you to provide certain personally identifiable information to access certain information on or to use certain features of our Website. For example, when you provide information about yourself through an email intake form or contact form on our Website, we collect that information. And when you provide us with personal information through our Website, you give us permission to use this information to communicate with you as well as to use, share, and delete this information as described in more detail below.

How Do We Use Your Personal Identifiable Information?

The personal identifiable information you provide to us is used to communicate with you. For example, we may use your email address to send you articles, notices, and information that we think might be of interest to you. We may also keep track of information relating to your communications and other interactions with us.

Subject to the exceptions set forth in this Privacy Policy, our general policy is not to share your personal identifiable information with third parties without your consent. By using our Website, you do, however, consent for us to share your personal identifiable information with those who are affiliated with us, individuals and entities working on our behalf, and third parties needed to collect our computer servers or otherwise provide us with IT-related services.

By using our Website, you also consent to us collecting certain non-personal identifiable information about you. This includes information about your computer such as the type of browser you use and when and from where you accessed our Website. We collect this information so that we can calculate metrics about the performance and effectiveness of the Website, such as the number of visitors to the Website, how many pages they visit, which pages they visit, and how long they stay on the Website. We use this data to monitor the Website’s performance and to help decide how to add or change information presented on the Website. We also may aggregate your personal and non-personal identifiable information to conduct certain analyses.
