The information is used to optimize the users' experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors' browser type and/or other information.

More general information on cookies can be found here.

Cookies implemented on our Websites include:

  • Strictly Necessary: These cookies are essential to operate this Website and provide our Services.
  • Functional: These are cookies used to provide certain features on this Website such as recognizing your preferences for return Website visits. These cookies are not essential and you may choose to disable them.
  • Advertising Cookies: These cookies provide us and other third parties to track and learn about your use of our Websites and other sites you may have visited, and other advertised products or services that you may have been interested in. These cookies are not essential and you may choose to disable them.
  • Analytics Cookies: These cookies allow our Websites and Services to understand how you interact with our Websites. The information collected is in aggregate form to help Us understand how effective our content and marketing is and to both improve content and build better features that enhance our Services and/or the Website experience.
  • Social Media Cookies: Our Websites may use third-party social media widgets such as buttons or similar mechanisms from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube. Such third-party features may collect information about you, like your IP address and the page(s) you visit on our Websites. They may also place cookies on your device. You may exercise your option to disable those mechanisms through our cookie consent when you access the Websites. Please note, your interactions with those features are governed by the privacy policies of the third-party social media networks that provide them.

You have the ability to refuse cookies, however; certain features of this Website may not be available. Your browser should allow you to clear cookies and browsing data, or allow you to manage cookies for each website visit. You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.

We may also utilize cross device tracking which may identify and track users across devices through identifying characteristics such as an Agent's login account. Some Internet browsers include the ability to transmit "Do Not Track" signals. Since uniform standards for "Do Not Track" signals have not yet been adopted, We do not process or respond to "Do Not Track" signals.

Analytics Information

We may use Google Analytics or other service providers for analytics services. These analytics services may use Cookies to help us analyze how users use the Service. Information generated by these services (e.g., your IP address and other usage information) may be transmitted to and stored by Google Analytics and other service providers on servers in the U.S. (or elsewhere) and these service providers may use this information for purposes such as evaluating your use of the Services, compiling statistic reports on the Service’s activity, and providing other services relating to Services activity and other Internet usage. You may exercise choices regarding the use of cookies from Google Analytics by going to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout or downloading the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

Third-Party Ad Networks

We use Google AdSense/Adwords to publish ads on this Website. When you view or click on an ad a Cookie will be set to help better provide advertisements that may be of interest to you on this and other websites. You may opt-out of the use of this cookie by visiting Google’s Advertising and Privacy page.

Certain companies may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") AdChoices Program and may display an Advertising Option Icon for Interest-based Ads that links to an opt-out tool which allows you to exercise certain choices regarding targeting. You can learn more about the DAA AdChoices Program at http://www.youradchoices.com/ and its opt-out program for mobile apps at http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices.

In addition, certain advertising networks and exchanges may participate in the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI"). NAI has developed a tool that allows consumers to opt out of certain Interest-based Ads delivered by NAI members' ad networks. To learn more about opting out of such targeted advertising or to use the NAI tool, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of Interest-based Ads, you will continue to receive non-targeted ads. Opting out of one or more NAI or DAA members only means that those selected members should no longer under the DAA / NAI rules deliver certain targeted ads to you. This will affect this and other services, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks). If your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit this opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different device or web browser(s), or use a non-browser-based method of access (e.g., mobile app), your NAI / DAA browser-based opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective. Mobile device opt-outs will not affect browser-based Interest-based Ads even on the same device, and you must opt-out separately for each device. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.

5. Retention/Transfer/Security of Personal Information

Your Personal Information will be retained by us for as long as necessary for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy. This information will be used and retained to the extent necessary to comply with any legal obligations or policies, to resolve disputes, and/or enforce legal agreements.

Personal Information may also be retained for internal analytic purposes. This information is retained for a shorter period of time, unless if it used to enhance security features or improve the functionality of our Services.

Our determination of precise retention periods will be based on (i) the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you; (ii) whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject; and (iii) whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position, including regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations.

Personal Information may be transferred to and maintained on computers and servers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where data protection laws may differ from your jurisdiction. You consent to this transfer by agreeing to this Privacy Policy, accessing and using this Website and/or submitting any information or an inquiry form on the Website.
