Information We Automatically Collect About You and How We Use It

This Website automatically collects the following information about you and how we use that information is explained in each section:

Personal Information: In the form of return email addresses when a user sends electronic correspondence to us requesting specific information or to make a comment or request a calculator. We use this information only to respond to these requests. We do not share this information with any third-parties.

Aggregated Server Information: Information about users as a whole. We receive certain types of information about general website traffic at the Website. This does not include personally-identifying information, but does include visit frequency, which pages are visited, which search terms are used, what domain names (e.g., "google.com" or "facebook.com") visitors are coming from, user agents used (e.g. browsers), and the date and time of each visit. We gather and compile this information into an aggregate form for web traffic analysis. This analysis is related to website activity overall rather than on an individual level and does not include personally-identifiable information.

Because aggregated information does not include personally-identifying information, it cannot be used to identify you. We may share some aggregated website traffic data with third parties, such as advertisers or contractors, or include it in public records.

IP Addresses: Server logs record IP addresses associated with each accessed resource (e.g. web page, image, document, etc.). This is part of the Aggregated Server Information above however, we do not share this piece of information. When a user submits a contact form, their IP address is recorded in the email that is sent to us. Also, when an error occurs in a Website script (e.g. a calculator) an error message is sent to our support email address with details regarding that error along with the origin IP address which in most cases is the user's IP address.

We use the IP addresses we collect through the Website by these methods only if necessary and for the sole purpose of combating Spamming and Hacking.

For other methods that may be used to collect your IP address on the Website see Cookies used by Third Party Advertisers below.
