Personal information we may ask you for and how we might use it
When you visit our website, you may voluntarily provide us with personally identifiable information. We only collect personally identifiable information from you (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, credit card number, etc.) if you voluntarily provide it to us. Depending on the purpose for which the information was provided, we may use the personally identifiable information to communicate with you regarding our products, services, and promotions, to provide you with other information or materials that you request, to customize your interactive experience, and/or to improve our product and service offerings.
Here are the circumstances in which we might ask for personally identifiable information from our consumers though our website, the types of information we obtain, and how we might use the information:
