Google Analytics: We currently use Google Analytics. Google Analytics collects information anonymously and reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. Google Analytics uses its own cookie to track visitor interactions. Website owners can view a variety of reports about how visitors interact with their website so they can improve their website and how people find it. We may also use Google Analytics to remarket our Site to you by serving ads on our behalf on third party websites. Please see the following links for more information about Google Analytics: http://www.google.com/analytics/, http://www.google.com/privacy.html, and http://www.google.com/analytics/tos.html.
In general, we use the information we collect to either respond to the requests you make, or to aid us in serving you better. We use your personal information in the following ways:
We may also create anonymous data from your personal information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this anonymous data to analyze request and usage patterns so that we may enhance the content of our Services and improve Site navigation. We reserve the right to use anonymous data for any purpose and disclose anonymous data to third parties in our sole discretion.
We may disclose your information to our third-party service providers: to provide you with the Services that we offer you through our Site; to conduct quality assurance testing; to facilitate the creation of accounts; to provide technical support; and/or provide other services to the Company. These third party service providers are required not to use your personal information other than to provide services requested by the Company. The Company requires its service providers to which it discloses personal information and who are not subject to the laws based on the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46 or Swiss Federal Data Protection Law to either (i) subscribe to the Safe Harbor principles or (ii) contractually agree to provide at least the same level of protection of Personal Data as is required by the relevant Safe Harbor principles.

The Site contains links to third party Web sites. Please be aware that we have no control over, do not review, and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other Web sites.

The Site uses a variety of security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and unauthorized alteration of personal information in Company’s possession and control. However, please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide security for information in our possession and control, no security system can prevent against all potential security breaches, and we therefore cannot guarantee absolute security of your personal information.
Personal information which we collect may be transferred to, stored in, and used in the United States and other jurisdictions, some or all of which may not have privacy regulations and protections which are as protective as those in your home jurisdiction. If you have any questions about our security measures, you can contact us.
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
We do not specifically market to children under 13.
