What information do we collect?
We may ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address, or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites.
This "Personal Information" refers to any information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and which can be used to identify, contact, or locate you. Generally, we collect this Personal Information when you provide it to us by connecting with us for more information about projects listed on our Website.
The email address you provide for inquiries will only be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your inquiry. If you receive newsletters or promotional e-mails from us, we may use customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click on to provide more focused email communications or other information. In the event you do not wish to receive any emails beyond the answer to your question, you will be provided a link to “Unsubscribe” at any time. Our goal is to simply communicate with you in a way that you appreciate and that is helpful, nothing more.

What do we use your information for?
Except as described herein or in other agreements you may have with us, we currently do not rent, sell, or share Personal Information with other people or non-affiliated companies. The only exceptions would be: (a) when we have your consent to do so, (b) when necessary to complete an inquiry you have requested, (c) when required by law, or (d) when necessary to protect our rights or property. Although we currently do not rent, sell, or share Personal Information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies, we expressly reserve the right to do so in the future. In addition, we may use, or supply to others, aggregated data (independent of any of your personal identifiers) for research and commercial purposes. Such data is pooled and stripped of all personal identifying information and cannot be traced to you specifically.
We may share your Personal Information with select partners so that they can contact you about their products or service offers or in conjunction with project inquiries. Some of our projects may be co-branded with another company. If you inquire for additional information, we and the other company may both receive your inquiry data in conjunction with the co-branded services. We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our Website. Those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the Personal Information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. We may access or disclose information about you, including the content of your communications, in order to: (a) comply with the law or respond to lawful requests or legal process; (b) protect our rights or property or that of our visitors, including the enforcement of the agreements or policies we have with you; or (c) act on a good faith belief that such access or disclosure is necessary to protect the personal safety our employees, visitors, or the public. We may also disclose Personal Information as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.

We have the right to sell, transfer, assign, and dispose of any and all Transactional Data, in any manner that we desire at our sole and absolute discretion.
