Collection of Information
The Company uses the Site to provide information about The Company and to enable you to request certain publications, including news, annual reports, proxy statements and shareholders’ letters (the “Company Materials”). Save for the IP Address, The Company does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals. For example, if you are using the Site to request The Company Materials, you will be asked to provide personally identifiable information such as your name, company name, address and e-mail address (your “Personal Information”). This information will only be used by The Company to fulfill your specific request. The e-mail addresses we retain will be used only for the narrow purposes for which they were supplied by you — e.g., to provide The Company Materials or other information specifically requested by you.

Security of Information
You can be assured that your Personal Information collected through the Site is secure and is maintained in a manner consistent with current industry standards, laws and regulations. The importance of security for all personal information associated with our subscribers is of utmost concern to us. Your Personal Information is protected in several ways. Your Personal Information resides on a secure server that only selected personnel and contractors have access to via the use of a unique logon and password using the principle of least privilege. We encrypt your Personal Information in transit and thereby prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.
