Aggregate data on home server domain names, operating system, and type of Web browser may be used for internal purposes.

Individually identifying information, such as names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information which visitors voluntarily provide to us may be added to the our databases and used for future calls and mailings regarding site updates, new products and services, upcoming events, and status of orders placed online.
