What Information Do We Collect?

We collect information in two ways. First, we collect information that you voluntarily provide, such as through an email sign up form. This information usually includes your email address so that we can fulfill your request (e.g., add you to the newsletter list).

We also collect information automatically using features in Google Analytics, DoubleClick, and other third-party vendors. This includes, but is not limited to, user behavior (e.g., time on site, number of pages visited, etc.), user characteristics (e.g., demographics, interests, etc.), and other user data (e.g., device used to access site, screen resolution, etc.).

That information is typically collected using cookies, which are small pieces of data stored in your browser. You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page. You can also opt out of interest-based advertising entirely by adjusting cookie settings or permanently using a browser plugin.
