Information Sharing and Disclosure

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your Personal Data with any other person or company. We will share Personal Data about you to other companies or people when:

  • We need to share your information to provide the products or service you have requested;

Use of Cookies

We use “cookies,” a small text file transferred to your device, along with similar technologies (e.g., internet tag technologies, web beacons, embedded scripts), to help provide you a better, more personalized user experience. These technologies are used to:

  • Make the user experience more user friendly;
  • Remember your preferences (e.g., browsing language, account login information);
  • Help us understand and improve how visitors use the SLAM Websites, including which of our pages and products are viewed most frequently.

The Options/Settings section of most internet browsers will tell you how to manage cookies and other technologies that may be transferred to your device, including how to disable such technologies. You can disable our cookies or all cookies through your browser settings. Please be advised that disabling cookies through either method may impact many of the SLAM Websites’ features.

We may also allow third parties to place cookies on your device through the services to:

  • Help us understand and improve how visitors use the SLAM Websites, including which of our pages and products are viewed most frequently;

Do Not Track

Some internet browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Given that there is not a uniform way that browsers communicate the “Do Not Track” signal, our websites do not currently interpret, respond to or alter their practices when they receive “Do Not Track” signals.
