We are always looking for ways to better serve you and improve this web site. We will use non-personal information from you to help us make this web site more useful to visitors. We also will use non-personal information for other business purposes. For example, we may use non-personal information or aggregate non-personal information to create reports for internal use to develop programs, products, services or content, to customize the information or services that are of interest to you, to share it with or sell it to third parties, or provide aggregated information on how visitors use our site, such as “traffic statistics” and “response rates,” to third parties.
