Information Voluntarily Provided by Users

You can visit much of the Website without telling us who you are or providing us with other personally identifiable information. Some areas of the Website allow you to contact us to ask questions or provide comments. When you communicate with us and request a response, we ask for your name and contact information. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you; if you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests, we will respect your wishes.

Some areas of the Website may also require that you submit information in order to access specific content, features, interactive tools, services or participate in a particular activity. For example, to create an online account or to subscribe to a newsletter, we may ask for your name, contact information, and perhaps additional information so we can tailor our response to your request.

In addition, when you access certain interactive tools or services, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information. You may always choose not to provide the required information, but then you may not be able to participate in the particular activity that requires the information.
