The information collected falls into two categories:

If you do decide to participate, we may request certain personal information from you, such as your name, email address or physical address. We will use this information for analytics purposes.
  • Employment:  You may choose to provide personal information in connection with an employment application or similar inquiry.  In such event, you will be redirected to a site provided by a third party service provider.  You may be required to create an account to submit your application.

These settings will typically be found in the "options" or "preferences" menu of your browser.
