Typically, we will seek consent at the time personal information is being collected.
When personal information that has been collected is to be used or disclosed for a purpose not previously identified, the new purpose will be identified prior to such use or disclosure. Unless the new purpose is permitted or required by law, consent will be required before the personal information will be used or disclosed for the new purpose.

We will limit the amount and type of personal information collected from you to that which is necessary for the purposes we have communicated to you, including the Identified Purposes. Further, we will retain your personal information only for so long as is necessary to fulfill our stated purposes.
We routinely collect anonymous, non-personal information through our Web servers. This is information that is not associated with or traced back to a specific individual. Gathered electronically, this information includes the type of Web browser used, the level of encryption a browser supports and the Internet Protocol address. This information may be used for research and analytical purposes, to examine how our website is being used and to determine how it can be improved.

5. Use, Disclosure and Retention of Personal Information
We will protect personal information disclosed to third parties by contractual or other means, stipulating the purposes for which it is to be used and the necessity to provide a comparable level of protection.
We will keep personal information only as long as it remains necessary or relevant for the Identified Purposes, any other purpose that has been consented to or as required by law. We will maintain reasonable and systematic controls, schedules and practices for information and records retention and destruction which apply to personal information that is no longer necessary or relevant for any such purposes or required by law to be retained. Such information will be destroyed, erased or made anonymous.
