Our websites are not used to track, collect, or distribute personal information unless it is submitted voluntarily in an application or form. Our site logs do generate usage data such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff to provide better services to the public and may also be provided to others, but all shared information is devoid of personal information and cannot be used to construct such information.

When you submit information on our website, we strive to protect that information. We also strive to protect your information off-line. The servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secured environment.
