We may also ask you to provide additional information such as your e-mail address if you want to obtain additional services, information or to resolve complaints or concerns.

We may collect information from our website visitors that cannot be used to personally identify them via Google Analytics, Facebook Pixels, Pinterest Analytics, and similar services. This information is used solely for optimizing our Site to serve our visitors better. This includes information that lets us know how you found us; directly typing in our domain name, via a search on Google, or by clicking a link on another website, etc. We also collect information on metrics such as how visitors spend on each page and which pages they visit. This information is collected so that we can better understand our users, how they are using our site, and which parts of our site are popular and which others are not.
