In general, you may visit many pages of the Website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track or engage a third-party provider to track the Internet domain address from which people visit the Website and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous unless they voluntarily tell us who they are.
Sometimes (such as when you subscribe to a service, register to receive information, or participate in an interactive feature of the Website) we will ask you to provide personal information about yourself, such as your name, telephone number, e-mail address, occupation, or professional interests. Whether or not you choose to provide the information we request is entirely up to you. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to access certain services, functions, and content on the Website.

If you choose to provide information to us through our online registration, you may be asked to provide us with personal information, including your name, address, postal address and telephone number, your e-mail address, a password, and other identifying information (such as your mother’s maiden name, city of birth, or pet name). We may ask you for personal information when you ask us for information, subscribe to a Company service or publication, or download information.
Your personal information enables us to provide you with the information you have requested and provide you with information regarding future content and services that may suit your particular interests. We track registered users’ page visits and engagement with content in order to continue to increase the quality of our online resources and services. We also use your personal information to help identify you if you lose your password and to help you quickly find information on the Website.
