Information We Gather from You:

Personal Information
Personal Information refers to any information relating to our clients, employees of our clients, or individual browsing our web site(s).

We do not collect any personal information from a visitor to our site unless that visitor explicitly and intentionally provides it. Under no circumstances do we collect any personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health, or sex life. If you are simply browsing our site, we do not gather any personal information about you.

There are two ways in which you may explicitly and intentionally provide us with and consent to our collection of certain personal information:

         1.  Web Site Forms
         2.  E-mails

Statistical Information About Your Visit
When you visit our site, our computers may automatically collect statistics about your visit. This information does not identify you personally, but rather about a visit to our site. We may monitor statistics such as how many people visit our site, the user's IP address, which pages people visit, from which domains our visitors come and which browsers people use. We use these statistics about your visit for aggregation purposes only. These statistics are used to help us improve the performance of our Web site.

Use of Cookies
We only use "cookies" as described in this Section. A "cookie" is a piece of information that our Web site sends to your browser, which then stores this information on your system. If a cookie is used, our Web site will be able to "remember" information about you and your preferences either until you exit your current browser window (if the cookie is temporary) or until you disable or delete the cookie.

Many users prefer to use cookies in order to help them navigate a Web site as seamlessly as possible. You should be aware that cookies contain no more information than you volunteer, and they are not able to "invade" your hard drive and return to the sender with personal or other information from your computer. If you choose not to accept a cookie, you will NOT be able to use our Web site.

Our uses of "cookies" are limited to the following specific situation.  Our Web server may automatically send your browser a temporary cookie, which is used to help your browser navigate our site. The only information currently contained in these temporary cookies is a session ID, which helps us keep track of multiple users.

In the future, a direction value may be added that allows our software determine which page to show when you hit the back button in your browser. This bit of information is erased when you close your current browser window.

Our Security Procedures
We consider the protection of all personally identifiable information we receive from our Web site visitors as critical to our corporate mission. Please be assured that we have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of any information we receive from you.

As with any transmission over the Internet, however, there is always some element of risk involved in sending personal information. In order to try to minimize this risk, we encrypt all information that you submit in our On-Line Eligibility service using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. Our security procedures are also subject to an annual SAS-70 Type II audit by a nationally recognized accounting firm.

Changes to this Privacy Statement
If a material change is made to this Privacy Statement and/or the way we use any personally identifiable information, we will post prominent notice of the nature of such change on the first page of this Privacy Statement.
