Information We Collect

Our site collects personally identifiable information that you voluntarily and with unambiguous consent submit through our site’s “join” page. For example, you submit your name and email address to join.  As stated, this information will be used to send notifications from us in the form of emails or newsletters.  We also provide this information to our other members in a directory that will be password protected.  We may also collect information such as IP address, browsing history, and similar information that is not personally identifiable to help us analyze how the site is used, traffic patterns, and browsing history or other information to help us develop the site and improve your experience on our site. We do not combine IP addresses with personally-identifiable information to identify individual users.

We are not responsible for the data collection, privacy practices or policies of any third-party site to which we may provide a link or that may link to our site. We encourage you to read the privacy statement and terms of use of other sites.
