Privacy for Internet Users
Our commitment to safeguard your privacy also extends to the Internet. If you are just browsing through our Website, we do not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide us that information, such as when you send us an e-mail or fill out a request for information form. If you provide us this information, it is only used internally and in furtherance of the purpose for which it was provided.
Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer while on the Internet. Web servers, the computers that "serve up" web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When collecting information, ELM© does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous. ELM© may use IP addresses to audit the use of our site. They can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when necessary for security purposes.

We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers, former customers, web site visitors or portal visitors to anyone, except as permitted by law.
In the future, we may disclose a portion of the aggregate user information we collect on the portal to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf.
We will provide you an opt-in or opt-out notice if required by law.
