Personal information is information that identifies an individual personally, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and email address. We collect personal information in cases of newsletter sign-up and client bids. We will never share, sell, or release any of your information.
We only collect the personal information reasonably necessary to accomplish the purpose for which it is collected, and will retain it only as long as is reasonably necessary. At any time, if you wish to be removed from our database or mailing list, please contact us.
Cookies and Tracking Technology
Like most websites, our site may collect and log information automatically through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to you. Information collected may include items such as your IP address, the type and version of your browser, the length of time that you visit our site, your screen resolution, the location that referred you to our website and the average number of pages viewed. The primary purpose of gathering this information is to tally statistics on how our site is being used and how it might be improved.
In addition, in order to improve our site and your experiences with it, we may use "cookies" or other electronic means to track your visits. Cookies are simply small text files that our website can place on your computer's hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site. Our site's server, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it.
Most consumers do not know that "cookies" are being placed on their computers when they visit websites. Cookies cannot read data from your hard disk or read cookie files created by other websites, and they cannot infect your computer with viruses. If you want to know when this happens, or to prevent it from happening, you can set your browser to warn you when a website attempts to place a "cookie" on your computer. Please click on the "Help" menu of your browser for information on setting your cookie preferences. You can also read more about cookies and how they work at online sources such as www.cookiecentral.com.

Our site may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. If you access those links, you will leave our website. We do not control those sites or their privacy practices. Any information you provide to or through those sites is covered by the privacy policies of that site, not by this privacy statement. We recommend that you review the privacy policies of such sites before sharing your personal information.
Disclosures Required by Law
Please be aware that in certain circumstances, we may be required by law to disclose your personal information. We will make every reasonable effort to limit the disclosure to only that information which is necessary to comply with such law.
