We also use third party services like Google Analytics, which uses first-party cookies and helps us analyze user behavior, as well as Google AdSense, which uses third-party cookies in conjunction with delivering advertisements on our Site.

Third Party Websites
Selling and Disclosure of Personal Data to Third Parties
We have not sold consumers’ Personal Information in the preceding 12 months.
A list of the categories we have disclosed for a business purpose in the preceding 12 months:
- Internet activity information, including, but not limited to, browsing history, search history, and information regarding a consumer’s interaction with an Internet Web site, application, or advertisement
We disclose Personal Information if we are required by law or by a court order, in response to a law enforcement agency, to the extent permitted under other provisions of law, to provide information, or for an investigation on a matter related to public safety.
General Data Protection Regulation (EU & UK GDPR)
Our Site serves users from the United States of America (USA) and does not target or seek visitors from the European Union (EU) or the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (GBR).
We are based in North Carolina, USA. We do not maintain any physical presence outside of the USA, and we do not provide any business products or services to residents of the EU or GBR.
Consequently, we believe that the GDPR does not apply to our Site. Regardless, our Site only collects Personal Information of visitors from the EU or GBR with consent. Visitors from the EU or GBR cannot use our Site’s contact form, to prevent collection of Personal Information.
California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
While our Site serves users from the USA, we do not meet the requirements to be subject to the CCPA.
We are not subject to the CCPA since:
- we have less than $25 million in annual gross revenues, and
- we do not buy, receive for commercial purposes, sell, or share for commercial purposes the Personal Information of 50,000 or more of Californian consumers annually, and
- we do not earn more than 50% of our annual revenue from selling consumers’ Personal Information
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Our website is not designed to attract children and it is not our intent to collect personal data from children under the age of 18. We therefore request that children do not submit any personal data to us.
